The Perfect PokéRap

Brian David Gilbert has solidified his status as a Pokémon Master with this presentation at PAX East 2019. The man takes his audience on an entertaining, emotional and (above all) educational quest, culminating in a PokéRap featuring all current 812 Pokémon. And, while his effort and genius deserves all your time and attention, if you’d like to get straight to the top, Polygon has uploaded the song only which can be found here.

Original Stitch (Pokémon Dress Shirts)

Have you ever wanted to dress as smart as an Alakazam, but feel cooler than a Dewgong? Original Stitch may have the adorkable-come-metropolitan clothing range for you. As reported by IGN, they have a selection of formal dress shirts imbued with patterns inspired by the original Pokémon class of ’96.

Technology can breath new life into old art. Like making a Squirtle drawn in the mid-90s play with its tails. Or adding dog ears to the Mona Lisa via a Snapchat filter.

Cosmopoliturtle

Harris Fagotto AKA Cosmopoliturtle, has taken several well-known and beloved pocket monsters, and re-imagined them in a creatively colourful art style, looking someway towards a modern day Aztec or Mayan hieroglyph. Brought to my attention by Dorkly, Cosmopoliturtle’s work can be found on DeviantArt, Tumblr or even Harris Fagotto’s own professional website. And if there’s any ironic justice, soon to be discovered on the recently unearth inner walls of an ancient stone temple in Indonesia.
