Oftentimes, artists who try their take on adding realism to the Pokemon universe end up twisting the classic designs with snarling claws and horrifying anatomy, but there's something about Dekunobu/Glow's work that gives these monsters weight and texture while preserving their innate charm. From fearsome starters to eevee's so cuddly you could almost pet them, this is a refreshing look at these characters that we think you'll get a kick out of them.
