The Original 151 Pokémon, Recreated in Minecraft

Minecraft, being a block-based builder, has always been a favourite outlet of pixel artists everywhere. Like this enterprising player, who set out to painstakingly build replicas of the 151 original Pokémon in-game.

    Its baffling, if these minecraft obsessed people threw their energy into, i dunno, one of the either free for non commercial use game engines, or a 3d modelling package they could actually produce something epic and even make them employable.
    This glorified lego tinkering is so unimpressive and done to death.
