Minimaxir, the data scientist responsible for AI-Generated Pokemon, has returned with another strange experiment, this time focused on the series mascot Pikachu.
This time, instead of feeding the AI images of every single Pokemon, Minimaxir finetuned the AI on only a single image of Pikachu, specifically the current official artwork by Ken Sugimori. Minimaxir then had the AI generate new images of Pikachu, leading to even more unsettling and horrifying results.
