Ash Heads to the Wrong Side of the Tracks in GTA V Mash-Up

Bless the internet and its love for putting together the strangest things. YouTube user MerFish has taken American opening animation for the original Pokémon anime series and recreated it entirely out of characters from Grand Theft Auto V.
The video went up on Wedneseday, Merfish's birthday. The creator wrote:
Today I turn 23 years old, and for 17 of those years I have devoted my life to Pokémon. It's one of the few video game series that matches GTA in my heart, so surely a combination of the two would be something special, at least for me. So this is my birthday gift to myself that I wish to share with all of you.
The gift Merfish chose to share with the Internet is something to behold. Humanoids painted in garish colors imitating Pikachu, Squirtle, and Meowth. The video stars an Ash unlike his optimistic counterpart. This is an Ash that can only live in San Andreas.
Here's the original for comparison.
Manipulating the GTA V characters was no easy task either (warning for language).
Merfish has previously recreated the openings for Full House, the A-Team and Winnie the Pooh.
