As Ash and the others prepare to put on a funny new play, it seems the Pokemon are getting in on the fun in a hilarious way with “low-poly” versions of themselves.

Litten, Popplio, Pikachu and other favorites wear cardboard boxes over themselves in the preview for Episode 93 of the series, resembling the many blocky animals found in the Minecraft game. This play does not seem to be a high stakes situation for the next episode of the series, so fans will be able to enjoy all this extra cuteness even more so.

Minecraft is one of the biggest video game franchises ever because of its ease of entry and hilariously low rent visuals. It’s blocky representations of characters quickly grew in popular among fans, and now it’s slipping into anime. Although the Pokemon looks here don’t constitute a “crossover” in the usual sense of the word, it is hilarious to see Poke favorites in this new way.

If you’re itching for more Pokemon right now, Twitch is airing a special marathon for the series that will explore all nine seasons of the series. Between now and October 22, fans can watch along with others as fans relive some of the series most fun, and even saddest moments. You can currently find the marathon in the midst of Pokemon: Advanced Challenge, Pokemon: Advanced Battle and Pokemon: Battle Frontier coming soon after. Check out Twitch for the exact schedule, but hurry fast as the marathon is nearing its end!

Fans will also be able to get more Pokemon in the next film, The Power of Us. The film is currently screening in Japan, and will release in the United States at a later date. Pokemon: The Power of Us is described as such:

“In a town where people live with the wind, the legendary Pokemon Lugia appears on the final day of an event that is held once a year known as the Wind Festival, and people enjoy the wind’s grace just like a promise received long ago. Coincidentally, Satoshi and Pikachu, who were participating in the Wind Festival, meet five people. Is this the promise Lugia preserved? And what is the identity of the Phantom Pokemon Zeraora? Now, people and Pokemon, everyone’s bond can create a miracle.”
