Oh no. Oh no. No no no no no. Japanese magazine CoroCoro, you did not just reveal that Pikachu - and potentially other pokemon - will be able to wear various ensembles in the upcoming Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire. And Serebii, you did not take scans of that magazine and post them for all to...

Nintendo's Game Boy Advance entries in the Pokemon series, Ruby and Sapphire, marked the introduction of "secret bases," in which players would annex a space of the game's worlds, decorating them as they saw fit.

Some things we never wanted to see. Some things we never knew we never wanted to see – and Pokemon mashed up with Attack on Titan is one of those things. Ugh. Today's dose of nightmare fuel comes from zsparky on DeviantArt, as spotted by Tiny Cartridge. The only thing creepier than waking up...
