Horror Mangaka Junji Ito Collaborates with Pokemon For Spooky Illustrations
posted on by Bamboo Dong
Pokemon is making a push to make this year's Halloween eerier than usual, creating a special KowaPoke (kowai Pokemon, or "scary Pokemon") webpage dedicated to the more ghoulish ghost-type Pokemon.
The property has also teamed up with Junji Ito, the creator of horror manga like Gyo, Tomie, and Uzumaki, for a series of scary illustrations which feature a more sinister take on the normally cuddly creatures.
The illustrations can be downloaded as smartphone wallpapers, and will also appear on t-shirts, which will be given out as prizes.
For more illustrations and information about the collaboration, keep your eyes on the special website.
