Pokémon madness continues this week.

Uniqlo will be holding their annual design contest, with the latest theme being Nintendo’s cock-fighting critters of adorable-yet-undetermined origin. That’s right: everyone around the world can participate in this worldwide contest and submit a Pokemon t-shirt design.

The winner’s designs will be sold in Uniqlo‘s Spring/Summer 2019 catalogue, as well as win a ton of amazing prizes. Interested artists and aspiring designers with huge adoration for these Japanese critters should apply here. That’s not all: the contest will be judged by The Pokémon Company President Tsunekazu Ishihara and Game Freak designer Ken Sugimori, as well as UT Creative Designer (and DJ/record producer) Nigo.
