Squirtle, You and Your Pokémon Friends Are Creepy

Cute? These Pocket Monsters aren't cute. They're creepy. But that's the point: artist Vaughn Pinpin redesigned the first generation of Pokémon starters if they were characters in a Tim Burton movie. The result is brilliant—creepy, but brilliant.

Pinpin is planning to re-do the first 151 Pocket Monsters in the Pokédex all dark and quirky like. Sounds like a plan to me. He just needs a good name: Dark Pokémons? The Demon Pocket Monsters of Kanto Region? Ash Pokéball Hands?
