Paul Robertson, the animator and pixel artist who worked with Tribute Games on
MercenaryKings and who has contributed to all manner of high-profile projects including
ScottPilgrim, The Simpsons, and Gravity Falls, has now turned his attention to Pokémon. Rather than simply pixelate Game Freak’s existing creatures, however, Robertson has instead created an entire Australia-themed Pokédex from scratch – he’s even included evolutions. Highlights include Sidnee, whose armoured back resembles the Sydney Opera House; Caramell, Fredo and Berty, who are all half-unwrapped chocolate bars; Bogg, Shitta and Dunnee, who take on various lavatorial forms; and the frankly nightmarish Dedorse, a zombie steed emerging from a bubbling pool of blood. An utterly charming bunch.
