GTA mashed up with Pokemon is super effective

Hat-Loving Gamer, the YouTube channel that brought us 101-player Mario Kart, is on a roll. This week, they've mixed the Grand Theft Auto series with Pokemon to create what is either the most adorable take on GTA or the most horrifying vision of Pokemon I've ever seen. From GTA 3's mute Claude to GTA 5's insane Trevor, this video tribute hits all the right notes.

This isn't the first game Hat-Loving Gamer has presented in the style of Pokemon, but it just might be the finest. And as someone who generally got along with cousin Roman in GTA 4, I was happy to see him given the hero's treatment he deserves. Because really, who doesn't want to go bowling?
