Wild Nidalee used Swipe! It’s super overpowered!
A new video by SpudBunch dares to mashup a popular MOBA and a beloved handheld game. Yep, League of Legends and Pokémon are getting real close in an awesome crossover.
The opening turns the Pokémon Emerald intro into a Riot Games creation, with Ashe as the protagonist. As she begins her journey, she quickly encounters a wild Nidalee in the tall grass. Nidalee and Ashe’s Anivia duke it out in turn-based battle, and needless to say, Swipe is super overpowered. Towards the end, we also get a chance to see Gnar evolve into Mega Gnar.
This is SpudBunch’s second League of Legends crossover, the first being a parody of the Fallout 4 Wanderer trailer.
In other news, Riot recently revealed new Dark Souls-inspired skins for Kayle, Nocturne and Singed. Not only are they gothic as hell, but their splash is going in a radically different art direction.
