Hải Phòng wanted to welcome the New Year by building a flowery dragon statue in its city centre. However, the city didn’t realize the statue would welcome the Pokemon Go playing masses.

The dragon was part of a VNĐ60 billion (US$2.65 million) plan to improve the city’s aesthetic quality, but the high cost beast took on an unplanned aesthetic: Nintendo. The bright yellow of thousands of chrysanthemum and the strange shape below left visitors wondering why this Pikachu had the body of an eel.

With its bulky shape, the Eel-kachu looked like it was fed by a steady diet of genetically modified foods and anabolic steroids.

The city’s authorities decided to adjust the shape to make the mythical creature look more ’realistic’.

However, the more it changed, the worse it got.

After a chorus of ’boo’s,’ Hải Phòng authorities decided to remove the beast and send it back to the sea.
