Learn About Anatomy Through Pokémon

Art Pokémon

If you’ve ever struggled to pay attention in biology class, perhaps Christopher Stoll’s art will inspire you to hit the books. Following the release of the much-anticipated Pokémon Go, Stoll began a new series of Pokémon anatomy illustrations, called PokéNatomy, which has quickly become a viral hit.

It’s easy to see why, too! Just look at his take on Pikachu!

If that’s not enough for you, here is one of Charmander with a detailed list as to what the creature uses his flame tail for.

Another starter Pokémon whose anatomy Stoll sketched is Squirtle, whose shells, he claims, were apparently hunted for their ivory!

Stoll's version of Koffing apparently takes in all the carbon dioxide gases then converts it into useful compounds.

This drawing of Voltorb makes us slightly uneasy since it appears to be a malfuctioned PokéBall that fused with the poor Pokémon that was trapped inside.

Not only are we impressed with Stoll’s creativity and amazing attention to detail, but it’s hard to believe that each drawing was completed in four hours or less on an iPad.

Though the series is still a work in progress, Stoll says he plans to eventually illustrate all 151 Pokémon, and fans of his work can vote for which characters they’d like to see completed next on his DeviantArt page.
