We’d wager that fans of the Pokemon series would hate to see these creatures jumping out of the tall grass at night. Unless they also happen to be huge Tim Burton fans, of course. These excellent Pokemon illustrations are the work of Vaughn Pinpin, a student at The UP College of Fine Arts, and take inspiration from Burton’s twisted style.
These redesigned first-generation starter Pokemon seem to get progressively creepier as they evolve. While some don’t stray far from their original designs, such as Caterpie, others begin to look like demented characters from Ratatouille (see: Raticate). Even more character illustrations can be found on Pinpin’s Tumblr, which notes plans to complete the first 151 creatures.
Now if only we could get these redesigns in an actual Pokemon-styled game called The Nightmare Before Johto. Who wouldn’t play that?
