Usually, you need to go find your nearest ancient art museum to enjoy some fine Mayan art, but no need today! Monica Robles Corzo, a.k.a. Monarobot, is an artist from Chiapas, Mexico who has been creating some awesome Mayan monsters for the past few years. It’s all amazing, but we couldn’t help but fall in love with her Pokémayan series, which turns some of the most popular Pokémon into legendary Mayan monsters! If you like it, be sure to check out Monarobot’s Twitter and Tumblr, or support the artist by checking out her Patreon page!
We love the Gyarados, but we’ve got to note that Magikarp has never, ever looked more intimidating!
This is a more recent work done of the blue-flamed Mega Charizard X!
We didn’t think much of Noivern before, but this big-eared bat looks awesome as a Mayan monster!
This is a super cool drawing of all the Eeveelutions!
This one might be our favorite — it’s a Hawlucha chomping on an Ekans in a tribute to the flag of Mexico!
Greninja and his tongue scarf work perfectly in this style!
Yep, that’s Pichu, Pikachu, and Raichu! If there was any doubt, the red cheeks give it away.
Scyther looks even more ferocious here!
We love the work on the bulbs and flowers of Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur. The little poison clouds are a great touch!
You knew Ninetales was going to be on here,and you knew it was going to look rad.
Arcanine is another one that just works perfectly with this style!
Super cool work on the flames of Cyndaquil, Quilava, and Typhlosion!
Majestic flames for the legendary Moltres!
We love how tough Marowak looks in this one!
No good Pokémon fan art series is complete without taking on Lickitung.
We love how she did the menacing smile of Gengar!
Two more legendary birds: Zapdos and Articuno!
Here, have another Magikarp. It desereves its moment in the sun.
The tongue, tail, and bones turned out so cool on this Houndoom!
Great job on the water cannons of Blastoise!
This is just one of a multiple versions of Feraligatr that Monarobot has done!
The little wisp of smoke from Charmander is so cute!
And, we’ll wrap up with this rad Mega Blaziken — don’t miss the little Mega Stone up top!
