Realistic Pokemon-Season 2 by arvalis Realistic Pokemon-Season 2 by arvalis


These are all of the Pokemon I did during season 2, over 100 species are present here. This was a huge undertaking and I want to thank every one of you guys for sticking with me and helping realize this project. I put this together to be included with all of the other pokemon from season 2 in Realistic Pokemon-Volume Two art book which is now available here

what if this is what the pokemon world really looks like and the people are in a constant fear based helutination which makes them see the world like a cartoon

Looking at them I'm glad that they don't exist in real world.

Incredible! No wonder you were picked to design the Pokemon in the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie that's out in May 2019.

U helped make a movie! Omg that is so cool! I would usually say good luck but someone as good as u doesn’t need luck so congrats;)

I heard that you are helping with the pokemon detective Pikachu movie and I have to say congrats man. Seriously I'm so excited about this movie
zachleft Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2018
Dude I seriously don't think you get enough credit for integrating real world elements into your illustrations, and that's why I love them so much. You clearly have some solid knowledge about animals and it definitely shows based on some of your design choices (Feraligatr's hippo influenced bottom teeth). Lugia/leatherback turtle, Rayquaza/vine snake, Zapdos/kookabura, Skarmory/cassowary, etc. are all fantastic. I thought the handful of Remoraid actually being camouflaged baby Octillary was an incredibly clever way to bridge that bizarre evolution. I really don't find fan art all that appealing (mostly cringy), but this is something else entirely. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you have in store for season 3!

I didn't know that one picture could be an adventure to look through. These are all so detailed, and thankfully somewhat original so that you're able to make money off of it.
WilyWeeb Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2018
Just wanna know... No pressure, or anything... But when around (in days or weeks - or hopefully this month) will Realistic Pokemon Season 3 come out? Then again, if it's spontaneous, that fine. But if it's plan and due for hype and all that, I just kinda want to (hopefully) know when about, maybe even as small of info as 'this month', cause I don't want it to jump out outta nowhere and get a heart attack XD (I've been waiting for this 8 years.)
WilyWeeb Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2018
Absolutely can't wait for the new/upcoming realistic pokemon.

Now I'm curious about how you'd make some of the Gen VII Pokemon, especially the Ultra Beasts and Necrozma.
wombleofthewest Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2018  Hobbyist Artist
Good job on the Abomasnow + it's wee Snover, like it way more as a kinda snowy owl bear now I've seen it
shockaLocKer Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Do you ever think Porygon can be made to look realistic?

'Cause it's a digital pokemon.
It's really hard to picture realistically...
KittyKid1617 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2018  Hobbyist
How long are you working on a drawing like this?
KittyKid1617 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2018  Hobbyist

When I see the human, it reminds me how insignificantly small we are.
Feral-Alligator Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2017
I would like to see your interpretation on Zygarde i wonder how you would depict it instead of the usual rout people take which is just making it a big snake.( no offense to them)
HaceMorra Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
oh my lord i have always loved these and know i've found the person who made them? woah man i've seen these on the internet and loved them since i was 8. The realisim is practicly exact and I just find it amazing! Keep up the good work!
arvalis Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Haha wow you made me feel old, but thank you!
HaceMorra Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah no problem! 

and im kinda young, so you're not that old. Just been 5 years. 
Cosmonicwolf Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2017  Student Digital Artist
It’s really hard to pull off realistism, even more so if you’re trying to make rather cartoonish-characters realistic. You however, have pulled it off masterly and I applaud you for your hard work and attention to detail. Favorites have to be the Onix and Flygon line as well as all the legendaries ^^

And for those who dislike their representation of realistic Pokémon, let’s see if you’ll do a better job.

cool compilation
JediAtlantis Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2017
Very nice, though your choices on some are a bit strange, Megnemite I don't think is a crab, even in an organic form, but who am i to question. The one thing I have seen a lot is people using a tortoise as the base for Meganium stages, but it says that it is a sauropod so it would be like a longneck dino, but very well done, though using MR. mime as a toad, that is just funny.

sorry arvalis but i dont like the most of your realistic pokemon
