Earlier this month, the fifth annual Wenzhou International Animation Festival was held in China. There were cosplayers, anime, and truly frightening Pocket Monster statues.

These photos appeared on Taiwanese site CK101, and show how pleased at least one attendee was with the large Pokémon pieces.


The statues, which ranged from 2 to 4 meters tall, were on display in an area of the festival dubbed "Cartoon Paradise". It featured Chinese and foreign characters, and there were also Naruto, Ultraman, and Avatar statues for people to not enjoy as well.
