We've seen some impressive Pokemon fan art before, ranging from traditional Japanese woodblock prints to real-life depictions of everyone's favorite collectible monsters. These illustrations by Japanese Twitter user and artist @kizakura184cm/ show off a wild and majestic side of Pokemon we haven't quite seen before, however!

While the evolution of the original starter Pokemon look quite fierce, this Lapras seems to have turned out a bit more cuddly than them.

If you're interested in checking out how @kizakura184cm put these together, here are some "making-of" gifs that map out the illustrations. Be sure to check out @kizakura184cm for more!
