A Tokyo art collective known as ChimPom transforms exterminated rats into art objects. The rats you see here have been painted and posed as the Pokémon character Pickachu.

"The idea to do this was prompted by the presence of the so-called "super-rats" of Tokyo, so known for their supposed immunity to rat poison. So, the ingenious and strange ChimPomer’s decided to help solve the super-rat issue while doing what ingenious and strange Japanese artists do: attack problems while simultaneously making reference to ubiquitous animated characters."
