This Gorgeous Realistic Pokémon Fan Art Looks Like it’s Straight Out of Kanto!

Well, Kanto or Johto or Hoenn or — you get the idea. For more than a year now, Pokémon Go has made as close to real as ever the dream of being a real-life Pokémon trainer, and that’s led a lot of artists to think about what it’d actually be like to see one of the pocket monsters hanging out around the city.

dekunobou-kizakura on DeviantArt might just be the best artist we’ve ever seen to do it. His take on Pokémon from the early generations to the later is simply stunning — we’re in awe of the skill and the detail on display! Check them out for yourself, then be sure to look at the rest of the artist’s work on their DeviantArt page.
