The Tragic Reality of Pokemon Battles

(click on the narrow image to enlarge)

We talk about Pokemon a lot on the site here, but often we forget what it’s fundamentally about. This is essentially kids dogfights, pitting their captured pets against each other where they bit, scratch, drown, burn or electrify their way to victory.

So what does that look like in the interim between when the battle is over, and when Nurse Joy can magically heal all their injuries? decided to do a digital print of exactly the kind of injuries you might expect your Pokemon to sustain. There’s a lot of creative stuff in there, as each injury is unique to the Pokemon afflicted by it. I particularly liked insane Psyduck, rabid Eevee and Million Dollar Baby Hitmonlee.
