[Japan] New Pokemon collaboration will make your dentist scream in horror
Whether you wanna catch 'em all or not, you have to admit that some Pokemon can be pretty cute. And if you're the type of person who gets cavities and belly aches from too much cuteness you'd better hit that back-button on your browser now, because this upcoming collaboration is going to make you hurl rainbows.
Nintendo has teamed up with Japanese illustrator Okadamomo to create a batch of new Pokemon merchandise carrying his trademark style. Exactly what kind of merchandise will come out of this collaboration hasn't been announced yet, but we did get this promotional image:
The collaboration project is called Pokemomo and will invade Japanese stores starting August 11th. It probably won't be available for too long because when the cuteness finally reaches critical mass, we're all done for. But maybe the fabric of the universe can withstand the pressure long enough for the merchandise to reach Western shores? Time will tell.
All I know is that I'm going to quadruple check my Anti-plush/cute shields.
i thought of the same thing
I had difficulty reading all this post due to the eye grabbing & overwhelming cuteness of that damn Pikachu. It'll be cooler to see some less familiar 'mons illustrated in this style. I'm stopping commenting now so I scroll up and see 'dat Pikachu again.
When I read the Momo part, was I the only one who thought of Momo from Avatar: The Last Airbender?
actually the word momo in Japanese means "peach"
If they make a Sonichu version then sign me up lol
I'm guessing momo means cute or something close to that because besides the drawing of Pikachu being adorable, i've seen the word momo before in an imported GBA game I have called Slime Morimori Dragon Quest. It was on a poster with a lady Platypunk that had a kissy face and a heart next to it.
That. Is. Fucking. Adorable.
