EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE THIS MONTH - Aus­tralian Poké­mon bit.ly/AUpoke

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.
