The Pokémon fusion craze has been taking the world by storm since before Pokémon GO was nothing more than an idea in Niantic's head. Not only is this online Pokémon mish-masher an amazing time-waster—who doesn't love finding the strangest possible combinations of Pokémon they can?—it's also produced some of the most amazing (as well as some of the most disturbing) Pokémon fanart to grace the interwebz.

One such Pokémon mash-up fan—cat-meff, an artist from Germany—has graced the world with her own renditions of synthesized monsters of the pocket variety, and what we wouldn't do to be able to catch all these fanciful creatures! Her style so closely matches the official Pokémon art that you might even mistake these for real Pokémon! And the sheer amount of detail she puts into each of her Frankensteinian creations is absolutely breathtaking.

Here's a few we here at the Now Loading office fell in love with, but you can find all her Poké-morphs at her deviantArt and tumblr pages (links provided again below).

1. Skarmory + Charizard / Whimsicott + Altaria

Skarizard? Whimsitaria?
Skarizard? Whimsitaria?

Two flying critters to start us off, one all edges and the other all fluff. Can someone make me a Whimsitaria plush? Because I have a mighty need. Let's check out the formulae for these two bad boys.

Which one would YOU choose?

2. Lapras + Tropius / Magikarp + Bidoof

Laprius? Magidoof?
Laprius? Magidoof?

Here's a couple of winners. Laprius reminds me of some kind of sea turtle (especially lovin' the bananas under the chin) while Magidoof (*snicker*) reminds me of some kind of... beaver... merman... thing...

I'm not sure I'd wanna catch a Magidoof, tbh.

3. Altaria + Dragonair / Goldeen + Milotic

Altariair? Goldotic?
Altariair? Goldotic?

We already had one combination with Altaria up above, but what can I say? I'm a sucker for all things fluffy. Add that to Dragonair, one of my favorite Pokémon ever, and you've got a recipe for grabby hands. The Goldotic is equally as captivating—just look at the detail on those scales!

4. Blaziken + Talonflame / Suicune + Articuno

Blaziflame? Suicuno?
Blaziflame? Suicuno?

Next up we have a song of fire and ice! These two win the "most badass" prize of the bunch. After all, how do you get more legendary than a legendary Pokémon... aside from combining it with another legendary Pokémon? I rest my case.

5. Yveltal + Darkrai / Doexys + Mewtwo

Yveltrai? Deoxytwo?
Yveltrai? Deoxytwo?

I always thought Mewtwo couldn't get much more epic than he already was... I thought wrong (love that twisted tail!). Now he looks mildly like he should appear in Neon Genesis Evangelion. In the meanwhile, Yveltrai sounds mildly like an Eastern European name. Don't get caught in those massive claws!

6. Moltres + Ho-Oh + Blaziken + Talonflame?!

Moltroniken-Oh?!?!?
Moltroniken-Oh?!?!?

Possibly my favorite of the entire bunch is this fusion of all the fire birds from generations one through six. If that's not the most insane, legendary, mythical (+ a bunch of other epic adjectives) bird Pokémon you've ever seen, I will eat my hat! Just imagine going up against an opponent with this guy in your arsenal! Burn, baby, burn will take on a whole new meaning!

So many birds... so little time...

This is only the icing on the cake when it comes to cat-meff's epic Pokémon fusions. Check out all her works of art on either her deviantArt or her tumblr (check out the "pokémon fusion" tag!).

What's your favorite Pokémon fusion of all time? Any other fusion artists caught your eye? Have a whacked-out fusion you wish someone would put their pen to? Let us know!
