Yeah, yeah more Pokemon, but this is pretty damn cool.
We’ve all seen the typical art that first introduced us to all 151 Pokemon. It’s in this sort of style, and each creature is in a pretty memorable pose that’s been burned into our minds.
But as it turns out, the artist who did all these, Ken Sugimori, actually did an alternate set of all 151 for a rare series of playing cards that the world has seldom seen. Until now that is.
I have a full gallery showing the alternate art for each creature, which is cool because nearly everyone is actually executing one of their signature moves, some even against other Pokemon in the same frame. We have Arbok hurling acid on Diglett, a Paras eating Weedle’s head and poor Psyduck getting rocked by about five different Pokemon. It’s a cool series, and I suggest you check out the full line-up below.
