Have you ever wanted to be the very best, like no one ever was? Was catching them your real test and training them your cause? If you were my age in the late 90s, I bet you wish it was. Whether it was the TV show, the Game Boy games, the movies, the trading cards or any of the merchandise, Pokémon had you catching them all one way or the other. However, if you wondered what these pocket monsters would have looked like if they were real, wonder no longer. However, it may not be what you were expecting.
Check out this gallery of impressive imaginings of Pokémon in real life by artist Gavin Mackey over on deviant art. Strange and horrific pieces include Mr. Mime, Metapod, Venonat, Bulbasaur, Mew and others. Seeing Pikachu is interesting considering his poster boy cuteness (is he a boy?). Massive props to Gavin and I suggest you check out the entire gallery here.
