Concept Artist Joshua Dunlop has undertaken the extensive task of conceptualising all 151 of the original Pokemon, although we’re sure it’s probably more a labour of love. Beginning back in 2016, Joshua has since completed 113 realistic imaginings of the iconic creatures.

If you know any of the original Pokemon back from 1996, you might recall that some of them aren’t all as cuddly and lovable as Pikachu. In fact, it turns out that you probably wouldn’t want to meet a lot of them if they were real. Some of Joshua’s creations are the perfect nightmare fuel! But don’t worry, there are plenty of adorable ones too.

Head over to Joshua’s Instagram to keep up with all the concept art he’s finished so far. All image credit @joshdunlopconceptartist.
