Everyone's favorite Pokémon, Pikachu, has been rendered as a Nissan Juke. The compact SUV has been fitted with red dots for cheeks, a set of pointy ears, a smiling grille, and a lighting bolt-shaped wing for a tail. While the drawing faithfully brings the beloved character to life as a car, we think a Pikachu might be better matched with something small, agile, and peppy – like the Ford Fiesta ST.
CarWow went into excruciating detail with nine other Pokémon cars, which include Squirtle as a Volkswagen Beetle, Bulbasaur as a Range Rover Evoque Convertible, Charmander as a Porsche Cayman, Meowth as a Mercedes-AMG GT R, Jigglypuff as a Fiat 500, Snorlax as a Porsche Macan, Mewtwo as a Lexus LC500, Lapras as a Nissan Figaro, and Togepi as a Mazda RX-8. Be sure to visit CarWow to see all of the Pokémon car mashup renderings.
While these are all good, safe fun, Pokémon Go players have had a hard time disconnecting from the game when driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration put out a message to remind players to put their Poké Balls down when on the road, and there have been several accidents that reportedly resulted from trainer-related distraction. Other stories of wandering players helping motorists in need have also surfaced, so maybe Pokémon Go isn't a total waste of time.
