When it comes to Pokémon, there's a solid argument that nothing can ever match up to the exhilarating thrill that came with opening up a new pack of game cards, or booting up the game. Surely, the argument suggests, Pokémon is a prime example of something that simply can't be improved upon.

Well, maybe so, but that doesn't mean that no-one's going to try. For instance, artist Gavin Mackey of DeviantArt, who has taken it upon himself to transform a huge number of our beloved Pokémon into something...more.

Something...strangely real.

Something, in fact, exactly like this - starting with, of course...

Pikachu

Who has become...actually pretty darned adorable, to be honest. He's sort of like a fancy yellow chipmunk...

Bulbasaur

Some Pokémon, though, aren't destined for cuteness - but rather for strange, prehistoric weirdness. Cue: Bulbasaur. And, for that matter...

Charmander

Who looks surprisingly like a Super Mario Bros. villain. Or one of Daenerys' dragons in Game of Thrones...

Jigglypuff

Some Pokémon, though, are just plain terrifying - especially ones, like Jigglypuff, who look strangely human. There's something sinister behind those eyes, surely...

Mew

Y'know what? Don't even get me started on Mew. I'm already having waking nightmares...

Togepi

Which...just got a whole lot worse...Possibly most disturbing of all, though, is...

Lickitung

Who...is just plain horrifying. It's beautiful art - but it's also freaky as hell.

Don't worry, though, we've got one more Pokémon up our sleeve...

Psyduck

Now, I'm not sure what it is, but there's something about the idea of Psyduck being a strange, super-powered cousin of Big Bird that makes me want this to be the Pokémon that becomes real the most...

Though, let's be honest, if it really came down to it, I'd probably stick with Pikachu...

The best part? You check out a whole lot more real world Pokémon at Mackey's site right here.

Poll

What do you guys think? Which Pokémon would you most like to see made real?
