These Pokémon Got an Amazing Mayan Makeover From a Mexican Artist

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!
