151 Pokémon Recreated By 151 Awesome Artists. For Charity.

Take the original 151 Pokémon. Get a different artist to do each one in whatever medium they want, all as a part of the same collection. What do you get? A Pokémon gallery called Rare Candy.

Currently you can view all 151 of the Pokémon in the gallery here, where you can also bid for the creations. The auction is for charity, and as of this writing at least, the pieces are going for kind of cheap. From the website:

Peter Le and Amy Kim originally had a small idea of a fun art gallery dedicated to the original 151 Pokemon that they and many of their friends have all grown up watching. With the help of friends and students in the Animation/Illustration program at San Jose State University, they decided to make it for a good cause!

They recruited 151 artists and randomly assigned each artist one of the 151 original Pokemon. The artists had the freedom to interpret their Pokemon in any way they wished. The result is the Rare Candy Pokemon Art Auction for Charity.

All artwork made for the gallery will be auctioned off and 100% profit gained from the artwork will be donated to Canines for Disabled Kids. This is a non-profit organisation that enhances the lives of deaf and physically disabled children by partnering them up with trained service dogs.

You can find out more about the organisation at their website: www.caninesforkids.org

Here are some of the highlights from the gallery — and remember, if you're near the bay area, you can see these pieces in person until May 17th at the 225 West Santa Clara Umpqua Bank in San Jose:


    A lot of them are awesome. Some look like they were done by my 6 yr old nephew. Still an awesome thing to add to any pokemon fans collection.

    Yeah most of these are great. I like the artistic license some of them took with the design, but there were a few that look nothing like the Pokemon they are based on.
    Still, the majority are fan-friggen-tastic and its an awesome cause to support.

    this wins the prize for me, thank you so much for sharing this auction *activates credit card*
