100 Realistic Pokemons Brought to Life through Art


If any of you were like me as a kid, you remember about twelve years ago (even earlier for those from Japan) when Pokemon first entered the lives of the public and changed the gaming industry forever. Quickly becoming the second highest grossing video game series only outdone by Nintendo’s own Super Mario. Many of you may have grown up playing the games, going from the simplistic Gameboy games, to the Trading Cards or maybe even just the TV Show and the Movies.

With the Thirteenth North American anniversary of the Franchise coming up early next year, I bring you one hundred pieces of  fabulous art, reminding us of our childhood trying to catch them all, and many bringing these childish creatures into a more adult existence. I hope you enjoy these Creative and Realistic Pokemons Art.

Update: Now that Pokemon Go is out and available for everyone, these realistic pokemons will let us imagine how they would look like if they were not just in augmented form but a real living form.

I’m very proud of this post. I have put up a lot of effort and I don’t think you’d find many other posts on internet with such a large collection containing so many great, I repeat great designs. This should be the ultimate information for you to start creating such characters.

    Amazing collection. I especially like Pikachu by Hextupleyoodot. It looks so real 🙂 Amazing!

    1. Kiracoma October 10, 2010 at 11:59 am

      Glad you enjoyed them 🙂

  5. doodles October 22, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    soupandbutter needs to find a different hobby, because those Pokemon redesigns are /hideous/.

    Eic’s Charizard, however, is awesome. I also love Toto’s Mew and Lunesky’s Charmander. =D

  6. Chelsea January 30, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    I love this! I am always looking for alternative art, especially of pokemom, so it was awesome to find so many good ones all on one page. The only little thing that irked me….. That awesome epic one titled “Articuno vs Gyrados” by Leashe….. I am pretty sure that is an Altaria, not an Articuno 😉

  7. Madison Hammonds March 23, 2011 at 12:32 am

    Hi my name is madison

    this website is so cool because i just became a fan of Pokemon. I don’t know how many there are. my friend Hayley.A.Wilson she has made a fan club. And she is so crazy about it.

  8. Hana April 19, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    I love this collection.
    There’s only one thing that bothers me.
    The one image that says “Gyarados vs Articuno” , thats not an Articuno, its actually an Altaria.

  9. Sombra April 24, 2011 at 10:10 pm

    My friend linked this to me and was surprised to see my art featured. Thank you so much!

    Leashe’s one of my favorite artists. She has some of the most beautiful realistic pokemon. <3

    That farfetch'd one at the bottom is so adorable!

    1. Tayyab April 25, 2011 at 4:46 am

      @ Sombra

      Nice work, so you must have become our regular reader now, right? 🙂

  10. Sombra April 25, 2011 at 8:37 am

    Sure, I suppose so. x3 I’d never come across this site before and there’s some interesting stuff here.

    Though…just noticed 2 other things about this article (aside from the mistake in pokemon name that a few people above have pointed out) :

    There’s two pictures on here that aren’t of pokemon. The “Gyrados” by Eic and the “Ninetales” by Hibbary aren’t actually pokemon even though they resemble pokemon. I know that Kyuubi no Kitsune image from Hibbary is just a regular nine tailed fox from mythology. And the “Gyrados” is just a sea creature I believe.

    I’m being nitpicky aren’t I? ^^;

  11. fajas colombianas April 25, 2011 at 10:09 am

    Raichu looks so cute!

  12. oh-mrs-o April 27, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    Awwh! Two of the drawings I did are in here! I’m both honoured and incredibly glad that I watermarked them.
    Thanks for featuring me!

    1. Tayyab April 28, 2011 at 1:28 am


      you also watermarked it intelligently, without hurting the graphic. Usually we have to leave the watermarked images because the watermark (sometimes) ruins the image.

  13. Scorponis April 29, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    The “Articuno vs Gyarados” is actually Altaria and Gyarados. I’ve been to that person’s deviantART page before.

  14. Anthony May 10, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    I’m fairly positive that the picture you have up of Meowth is consistent with Toto’s style. Excellent collection!

  15. Matt May 11, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Does anybody else think the first Kabutops looks kind of like the Slender Man?

  16. alex June 6, 2011 at 8:30 am

    Love… I. Got to say, the more creepy real ones was how I always saw them in my head. Beautiful collection tysm. And I now want that lil pichu so badly for a pet.

  17. rayquaza lvx August 4, 2011 at 5:52 am

    WOW just WOW they where all good some of them where pooish but still got i like arceus and the pikachu ones the most

  18. purplechoccy November 18, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    These are fantastic – my respects to all of the artists featured! I have been a fan of pokemon since it first came to England, and still play. Some of these interpretations are absolutely astounding – my favourites have to be;
    Lugia and Lapras by guardianonfire,
    Pichu and Marill both by totoまめ,
    Meowth by Unknown*,
    and Arceus by thedarkhell.
    Amazing work artists! Keep it up and I hope to see more from you all!
    Also, I disagree with the comment from “doodles”, I think that soupandbutter’s renditions are inspiring!

  19. Kayleigh January 12, 2012 at 5:56 am

    Cruel people

  20. Dudegh March 2, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    I wish there was a Gallade.

  21. Bobby March 15, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    I’ve been a fan of Pokemon since as long as I can remember. Oh, and, on the Artucuno vs. Gyardos, that’s an Altaria. I’m a huge fan of Pokemon and love this!!! You guys did a great job. Keep up the great work!!!. 🙂

  22. Jp April 15, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    AWESOME, loved it

  23. Robert April 15, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    I got to say this is the most magnificent artwork I’ve seen, brought all of my childhood memories back to life in a milli-second. Thank you, I will honor this by getting a tattoo of one of these pictures.

    1. Ayaz Malik April 15, 2012 at 5:54 pm

      I am so glad u felt that way Robert :} cheers

  24. William April 15, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    The best pokemons i’ve seen

  25. Kayle April 16, 2012 at 1:41 am

    I believe the Maril drawn by Toto is actually an Azurill, its pre-evolution. Also, I love this collection by the way. Awesome job by all the artists!

  26. pokemaster January 12, 2013 at 10:55 am
