Gijinka is a popular genre of fanart that takes the established (or perceived) personality and visual design of non-human characters and objects and reimagines them as people. Artists have been "humanizing" their favorite Pokemon since the 8-bit days, so it's no surprise that we're seeing some really fun takes on the new creatures unveiled for Pokemon Sun and Moon so quickly. Here's some good ones we think you'll enjoy.
As always, if you see a piece you really enjoy you can click on the artists' names and see if they offer prints, commissions, or just give them a follow on social media.
