...such a cute monster made for such deadly purposes...

The Ishizumai Avatar Craze was a short phase in the forum's existence in late 2010, in which various members of the forum would change their avatar to that of a particular pokemon from the up and coming 'Pokemon Black/White' games, in various shapes, sizes, colours, scenery and positions.

It was sparked by the forum member ILoveWii, when he changed his avatar to that of an Ishizumai, while adding his forum initials to the used picture.

This would later be adapted by several members to reference the also popular 'Polos' meme.
