Pokémon’s a virtually unstoppable multimedia property that has graced cartoons, movies, trading cards, comics, and a myriad other entertainment types. The franchise has found success in everything that it’s touched since its mid-’90s debut — video games in particular.
Nintendo’s Pokémon video game franchise is a driving force that’s snared multiple generations in its Pocket Monster-catching grasp from the original GameBoy to N64 to Wii. Only Nintendo’s own Mario franchise has that level of mainstream swagger.
While browsing 4chan‘s /b/ board (LINK NSFW), I came across an incredible thread featuring awesome Pokémon artwork that I thought I’d share. Not just here, but here, too. If there were an actual Pokémon game using this artwork, I’d buy it in a heartbeat.
Props to the artists, whoever you are. Unfortunately, no one gave us the “sauce.”
