Pokemon, re-imagined as an ukiyo-e. Don't worry, it's not animal abuse. They love to fight.

The second amazing Ukiyo-e piece, this one is great because it calls to mind Feudal Japanese gambling games. The sumo ring in the center adds a layer of familiarity, with a referee and attendants bringing out yokai through containers, each marked with the symbol best suiting the animal. This game looks hazardous and risky, and it is exactly the kind of game I see the underworld of Feudal Japan playing for high stakes. Wonderful job on this one!

Is there a way to get a higher quality resolution of this?

This picture is simply epic.  If there was one thing I was disappointed in it's that Bulbasaur isn't there... but it is AWESOME :D:D

This was funny for me, took me quite awhile to understand who was who. Nevertheless, nice exploration of art for Pokemon, well done and nice contribution to DA!
