This Pokémon Go thing? I’m not 100% sure it’s not Nintendo’s way of disarming us humans to make way for an alien invasion. Just sayin’.
Every now and then, a friend of mine and I will exchange random Mass Effect images we find on Pinterest. So when he sent me a pin of an artist’s rendition of the Mass Effect races as Pokémon, I couldn’t not share it. I did some digging and found out that there’s an entire series called “It’s Mass Effective!” These pieces were designed and drawn by Kaleb Raleigh, and as one who isn’t even that interested in Pokémon on a personal level, I thought they were pretty great.
Turns out, Raleigh didn’t only Pokéfy Mass Effect, but he also did the Game of Thrones “A Song of Blue and Red” we showed you a few weeks ago, as well as a Halo series called “Combat Evolved!” Raleigh put a lot of thought into not just the evolutionary designs, but also what types of Pokémon they’d be. I gotta admit, these renditions of pretty gosh darn cute. If Pokémon Go had these as catchable critters, then maaaayyyyybe I’d give it a try.
Daww! Who’s a cute little Brute? You are! Yes you are!

What other franchises would you like to see turned into Pokémon? Do you have any to share? Have you found a Blastoise yet? Cause my editor is still looking for one. Share it all with us in the comments!
