Pokémon Battle Royale

No, this isn't a crossover of the book/movie series and Pokémon. It's a really cool art project and tumblr in which 151 artists create 151 unique works, one per Gen 1 'mon. It's a really cool project considering that all of these works vary wildly in style, many of them in a style completely different to that seen in standard Pokemon fan art. Some extremely interesting modern interpretations and some unique alt-art kind of things. There's some traditional-ish stuff too and some things you might expect to see on cards and whatnot.

It's definitely worth a look. They also sell prints if that strikes your fancy, but they're a little on the pricy side.

These are... err... Interesting.

A few of them are pretty neat, others just seem too abstract for my tastes.

I'm particularly fond of Diglett and Slowbro

Yeah, I didn't love a lot of them because they're really weirdly abstract but it's kinda cool to see people doing this. I really love video game art that's kind of in weird styles.

An example of what I mean is the Marowak picture... That's just silly. It's trying to be deep, like REALLY trying, but it's just not working out for me =\

Another one is Dodrio... I think it's hilarious, but honestly kinda childish, and lame, especially compared to others.

Gengar and Farfetch'd are more of my favorites There's really a lot of them I like, looking at them all again

Out of 151 pictures, I only zoomed in on one. I also only saved one, that one. It was the one with Weedle.

Not a fan of a lot of these grotesque art styles but meh, w/e. I'm sure someone out there wants to frame a 3-foot-tall version of that Clefairy picture. Someone like this. >_>;

Those are the ones I liked

Golbat, Parasect, Mankey, Tentacruel and Omastar are all pretty awesome.

Hitmonlee/chan made me laugh.

I like this. Some of them are ridiculous, but it's good that there's so many different styles.

I heart Charmeleon. And Fafetch'd made me laugh, a lot.

Hitmonchan/lee was a good one. Venomoth's made me go SQWEEEEEEE and a couple of others were nice too. Gengar, Victreebell, and Tentacruel were all good ones.

Some I didn't like. That's life, but I just wish they had tried for a little more talent in drawing this kind of thing. As much as Marowak's was nicely abstract, it wasn't a good Marowak.

[COLOR="Wheat"]Wigglytuff, Venonat, Poliwhirl, Doduo, Drowzee, Exegguttor, Lickytung, Chansey, Seaking, Magikarp and Omastar are very well executed and representative of the Pokemon in question. Also the art choice is very accurate on these cases, in my opinion. Love all of those, the others, well, they have varying degrees of liking, but it's a very nice effort.[/COLOR]

I really only like the Weedle one too. I was probably the best out of all of them.

Am I alone here in really liking the Ivysaur? The slightly-dark color scheme is lovely.

This is a neat project. Not quite sure which ones are my favorites, though the ones that (also) stand out for me are Pidgey, Pidgeot, Venonat, Poliwhirl, Chansey, Rhydon, Tangela, and Eevee.

This is amazing :o

I love the art style of most of these artists, especially since they vary. IT can be really realistic, to cartoony, to plain abstract. My favorite for now is Nidorina though lol

EDIT: Never mind, Pimp Diglett is the best.

Favorites: Caterpie, Weedle, Pikachu, Nidorino, Wigglytuff, Venonat, Shellder, Drowzee, Krabby, Exeggcute, Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Chansey, Electabuzz, Magikarp, Gyarados, and Dragonair.

Those were really good in my opinion, with my favorite probably being Exeggcute. Though some were extremely weird, like the Clefairy one. Many of them I didn't like, but there were some gems there.

Farfetch'd is by far the most cruel of images.

LOL @ Hitmonlee/chan interaction.

I must say, I think they should've chosen a better artist for Mewtwo and Mew.

lol I really liked some of these... Looked like some of them were styled based on certain Cartoon Network shows.
