If Charles Darwin Had Studied Pokémon...

Artist Michael Casteel has reimagined the Pokédex as something you would have found in the tattered diary of a 19th-century British man with a Pith helmet and a magnificent beard.

He calls it his "Pokémon Field Guide", and alongside the hand-drawn illustrations are rough notes detailing the first encounters between the bumbling Professor Baobab and the elusive creatures.

These are just a handful of the images from the gallery; to see the whole thing, head to Casteel's gallery below.
