Modder adds Charizard to League of Legends

One of the hottest mods for League of Legends right now lets gamers live out their dreams of being the very best.

If you were inspired by Ash Ketchum after he finally became the best Pokemon trainer in the world, we've got good news for you. You can do your best impression of Ash, complete with Charizard and all, in League of Legends.

It's all about crossovers these days and it looks like Pokemon and League of Legends is next.

A modder added Pokemon into League of Legends by converting the game's newly-added jungle companions into Gen 1 starter Pokemon that evolve. The League gameplay remains the same as intended by Riot Games. The only difference is that the companions now look like Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur, as well as their respective final evolutions.

Season 13 of League of Legends added new jungle mechanics to make it more beginner-friendly. The new feature involves giving players a companion that helps them clear out the jungle. All the modder did was just reskin the default options and turn them into Pokemon. If this catches on, we wouldn't be surprised if other starter Pokemons all made their way to League of Legends via the mod. After all, the modder went as far as to add sound effects on top of their likeness.

Unfortunately, we're pretty sure Nintendo won't take this lightly. If nothing else, you might want to try out this "new" feature in League of Legends before Nintendo cracks down on it.

At this point, we're just waiting on Nintendo to DMCA this mod.

Speaking of Pokemon, fans are bombing Pokemon Scarlet and Violet with negative reviews. The latest mainline Pokemon installment isn't performing well on the Nintendo Switch and it doesn't look like a fix is coming anytime soon. Finally, for some good news, an NFL Pro just retired to pursue trading Pokemon cards full-time.
