    Ok... just coming from that article about the SEGAxCAPCOMxNamcoBandi game.... This article just induced mental overload. The thought of Psyduck being an elite telepathic terrorist and Magicarp being the embodiment of unfathomable evil are really getting to me. I think I need t go see Nurse Joy. Shame on you Justin.

    Oh and which pokemon would be that ridiculous last boss from that notoriously insane bullethell game? She like literally fills the screen with purple shots. I'd wager Togepri. BAYONETTA!!!

    I thought this was gonna be about a Pokemon-style game where you defeat and collect bosses from other videogames. I thought I would be seeing an article listing the 150 bosses one would want to include in such a videogame, including their moves and evolutionary paths. As such, I was disappointed until I saw the Mankey Andross, which was done so lovingly it more than made up for it.

    I thought the exact same, but only the geodude made it slightly better for me... Bowser should've very clearly been Blastoise. And so many dragon bosses in games, yet no dragon pokémon on the list!

    I'm usually on Cracked on one tab while Gamesradar is on another. For a split second, I wasn't sure which site I was on. Again. Ha.

    I do that too!
  • KidKatana - April 11, 2012 9:36 a.m.

    Me too! Man, I bet our bosses fucking LOVE us.
  • Person5 - April 11, 2012 11:37 a.m.

    sometimes I swear I'm the only one in the world who dislikes that site
  • heyitsmarcus - April 11, 2012 11:47 a.m.

    Yeah, that site is literally crack to some of us. Although no, much like my roommate, I bet there are many people who have to hear people say "Well, I read this thing on Cracked that.." You aren't alone, buddy.

    Ha, I bet. I'm still waiting for one of my professors to have a comment war with me at some point regarding dick jokes..

    Love the fact that Justin talks about how pokemon havent appeared in any crossovers, (with the exception of smash bros) yet this article comes out just a week after Games Radars own article by Henry about the confirmed US release the the Pokemon/Nobunagas Ambition crossover game 'Pokemon Conquest' Whoopsie-Daisy!
  • GR_JustinTowell - April 11, 2012 9:43 a.m.

    Ah, but that's actually called 'Pokemon Conquest', so it totally counts as a spinoff Pokemon game.
  • mattdark - April 11, 2012 3:35 p.m.

    Ah, but 'Pokemon Conquest' is just the name it has been given in America (And possibly europe) The official japanese title is 'Pokemon + Nobunagas Ambition', so crossover still stands

    *points* Look! It's the Goodyear Blimp! *runs*
  • ultimatepunchrod - April 11, 2012 8:50 a.m.

    Nice one. Psyduck was my favorite.

    Did you do all these yourself, Justin? Some of them actually look so good that I'm worried about how much time you spent on them. Great article though. I'm not even a Pokemon fan, but this was cool.
  • GR_JustinTowell - April 11, 2012 8:31 a.m.

    Thanks :) And yes, all Photoshopped with the inset picture as a starting point, then adding in sprites/screenshot elements etc. I started the feature yesterday lunchtime so don't worry, it didn't take forever :P

    It seems you've got some pretty decent PS skills. Maybe you missed your true calling.
