Gotta Fight ’Em All! Pokémon as Kaiju

Yuuki Morita Pokemon kaiju

Forget Kaiju Blue—what you should be fearing is Pokémon Blue (and Red). That is, the formidable Pokaiju (see what we did there?) brought to spine-tingling life by artist Yuuki Morita and put on our radar by Kotaku.

Forget Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander’s eventual evolutions—this is leagues scarier. Morita has only drawn the central three so far, but we’re hoping to see kaiju takes on Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, and so many more. Together, they’ll cancel the Pokapocalypse.

Of course, in doing so, you take away the one central tenet of Pokémon—that the monsters are pitted against each other. Unless... he draws some of the Pokémon as Jaegers!

Pokémons as Jaegers? You mean, using electric types like voltorbs? If all humanity can do is sending self-detonating Jaegers to fight the kaijus, we're doomed.

They rarely get the scale right in the animated series. Most of the top level evolutions are kaiju. Charizard, Blastoise and Venasuar are (or at least can be) that big.

Very cool and well done, especially Blue.

While they don't have the scale right in the animated series, it's in the wrong direction. Charizard is 5'7" and Blastoise is 5'3", Venusaur is the only one above average human height at 6'7".

As for the Kaiju Pokemon meaning that Pokemon won't fight each other....I know quite a few Godzilla films that would argue against it.

I as a girl am not a fan of Kaijus but am aware of their existence since I did read about them on the pop culture blog http://www.rodansroost.com. Well, I do not mean existence literally, for in that sense, there is none; but the existence I am talking about is the enterprises, games, toys and the likes. I also admire people devoting their lives in making these in fulfilling for Kaiju fans. I see most of these games on arcades, online gaming sites especially the popular Rise of Nations Game. Though I am not quite familiar in games catering kaijus, I see them all the same but I am hoping someone could elaborate to me further the difference of one from the other. I oftentimes mix up Kaijus with other monsters, like dinosaurs, etc.
