League of Legends fans come up with the most inventive concepts for their favorite champions, but a new Pokemon-themed skin for Yuumi could be the perfect way of blending the two properties into one incredible collaboration.

Riot Games’ popular MOBA has over a hundred characters and most of them have multiple alternate designs to choose from. The creativity on some of those skins are unmatched, but other times it’s apparent that the devs got some inspiration from a certain place to make them happen.

In hoping the game’s devs follow the latter process of creating a skin, a League of Legends fan put together a legendary design for Yuumi that would be an instant classic if it ever released.

Cosplayer and artist Brittany ‘Vienna’ put together a concept for the Magical Cat that likens her to the rarest Pokemon in the original 151 collection and is called “Mewmi.”

Yuumi’s base cat design has been traded in for another in the image of mysterious Pokemon, Mew. Instead of #151’s iconic pink, it’s been swapped out for a purple that is more in-line to Yuumi’s fur.

The champion’s best friend Book also received an uplift with the concept, and now fittingly portrays a Pokedex from the early eras of the franchise.

The design perfectly highlight the already obvious similarities that the two character’s share, both in the long tail, feline resemblance, and enormous eyes which only prove why this skin needs to happen.

Could a Pokemon skin be in League of Legends?

While it seems unlikely that a skin concept like Vienna’s could ever be incorporated into the game for obvious licensing issues, the devs have flirted with integrating likenesses of popular characters from other properties before.

Skins like Shaco’s Mad Hatter or Rammus’s King Rammus designs share a lot of similarities with the actual Mad Hatter from Alice and Wonderland as well as King Bowser from the Super Mario series, respectively.

Locking down the permission to make anything that even closely resembles a Pokemon would be a tall task, but it would definitely be widely appreciated by fans.

If Riot ever does get the greenlight to do so, the first skin concept on the list to make would definitely have to be Vienna’s Mewmi design.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
