Take a look at our picks for the most unsettling Pokémon fan art, and afterwards, you can decide whether or not you still want to catch ’em all. To be honest, these creations look like they’d catch you first, from beneath your own bed. Rather than carry these actual monsters around in your pocket, be content to just carry them around in your head, and nightmares.

Finally ending the debate on which Generation One starter is the best, here we find David Szilagyi‘s Charmander eating a Bulbasaur salad and some Squirtle soup.

David Szilagy’s take on everyone’s favorite electric mouse is nothing less than unsettling. Bravo.

Machamp

With two additional sets of arms and a bevy of skulls, David Szilagyi’s Machamp is undefeated and wears his opponents torn limbs as trophies.

Weezing

Maybe the best ad ever created? Weezing went from kind of derpy to down right terrifying thanks to JR Coffron III’s efforts.

Gengar

Who knew gingivitis could be so terrifying? Oh wait, SoupAndButter did, and he decided to give to a troll doll.

Chansey

Oof. Vincent-Covielloart’s Chansey will slam the illness out of you, with a gut-punch to your good taste.

Shuckle

Thanks to DefiledVision‘s staunch research, we now have scientific proof that prolonged fermentation of berry juice can lead to gastric issues in the Shuckle species.

Muk

Oh look- it’s Aunt Dorothy and she wants a hug. Thanks to Truduss, we get to relive Thanksgiving every other day of the year with this image, but without the appetizing parts.

Cloyster

Because sharks weren’t enough of a reason to stop swimming in the ocean. Thanks for solidifying the totally rational fear of open water swimming, JR Coffron III.

Togepi

A zit popper’s dream come true in Pokémon form. Thank you SoupAndButter, really, thank you.

Mr. Mime

He just wants to play, right? Right, Wednesday Wolf? No foul intent at all…

Jirachi

Jirachi, the wish Pokemon. My wish: that VanessaGiratina would stop corrupting my childhood memories of adorable event Pokemon right meow.

Mudkip

Nope, we do not like Mudkips. Not anymore, at least thanks to TheDarkHell.

Poliwrath

If the word “moist” was a Pokémon, SoupAndButter’s Poliwrath would be it.

Mewtwo

The creepiest part of this redesign stems the level of emotion artist Miranda Leek manages to incorporate into Mewtwo’s facial features.

Mew

If Mew looked like this in the Pokémon universe, you would have to ask yourself why on Earth anyone would even consider cloning it, including artist, Twarda8.

Bulbasaur

It’s like Heath Ledger’s Joker and the Happy Mask Salesman had a baby. Cheers to ZSparky for making everyone ever super uncomfortable.

Graveler

Drawing materials from what looks like shrapnel, David Szilagyi’s take on Graveler provides a grim look at the aftermath of a skirmish.

Gyarados

Zombies and maggots, oh my! BlakkFox manages to make Gyarados even more terrifying with this take on the creature.

Jigglypuff


Photo: SoupAndButter/Deviant Art

Good lord. SoupAndButter’s take on Jigglypuff looks disgustingly human, and kind of like a certain politician with super tiny hands that wants to make Kanto great again.

Eevee


Photo: Wednesday Wolf/Wednesday Wolf

D’awww… kind of. Wednesday Wolf’s beautifully watercolor Pokémon achieve a happy medium between something cuddly and carnivorous.

Ampharos

Psykhox’s grim piece on Ampheros poaching is enough to make anyone’s stomach churn.

Psyduck

Aww, poor guy! Jesse Riggle taps into his audience’s own issues, applying human troubles and fears to many of his creations, but especially this Psyduck.

Squirtle
