I'll come clean with you guys: I've always found Pokémon to be a little bit creepy. First off, there's the concept of forced animal fighting, and the fact those creatures are kept in little red-and-white balls. Then, there are the Pokémon themselves, some of which, as we here at ComicsAlliance have documented, can be rather unsettling when you think about them.

One enterprising, anonymous artist on Tumblr didn't feel satisfied with Pokemon only being mildly disturbing, however, and thus created Pokémon x Nic Cage, in which the actor's face is going to be added to all 151 of the original pocket monsters. Peer into the abyss of abject terror with a few selections from the site's efforts so far after the jump.
