Pokemon started taking the world by storm back in 1997 by means of their anime series, video games, and trading cards. Before you knew it, there wasn’t a person on the planet who didn’t know about Pokemon. They were like our virtual pets, but with extraordinary powers and the mysterious ability to fit into a tiny Pokeball.

In 2016, Pokemon made a huge comeback with Pokemon Go, an augmented-reality smartphone game that allows players to literally chase down Pokemon on the streets. We were so close to finally owning a real Pokemon and achieving our Pokemon trainer dreams.

Enter, the Detective Pikachu movie earlier this year. This gave us a fresh view on what a few of our dearest Pokemon would look like in the real world. The fantasy flick was a wonderful revival of the Pokemon craze, opening a floodgate for the return of Pokemon in the form of even more games, merchandise, and fan art all over the globe. Frankly, we can’t get enough of them.

Artist, Joshua Dunlop, totally gets us with his extensive collection of outlandishly realistic Pokemon art renderings that almost literally jump off the pages. This list contains everything from the adorable yet temperamental Jigglypuff to the lazy Snorlax. Welcome to Pokemon paradise, trainers. Are you ready to catch them all?

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
  • The band’s first English-language single, “Dynamite”, was released on August 21st. Its video broke the YouTube record for the most viewed music video premiere, grabbing the attention of three million viewers, and it set a new record for the most viewed video on the first day of release. “Dynamite” is also the first music video on YouTube to surpass 100 million views in less than one day.
  • BTS has been often labeled as “easily the biggest and most successful name in K-pop in the world” that can “do things no other name in their genre can.” Time magazine has gone as far as calling them the “Princes of Pop.”
