Cases in point: the following Pokémon illustrations, produced some time ago by Matthew Elliott (aka pseudonymjones).
|"Team Rocket Grunt F + KOFFING"|
|"HAUNTER used Sucker Punch"|
|"MAGIKARP used Splash"|
I came across the pieces above after stumbling across Elliott's take on everyone's favorite closeted game character, Tingle, by the way. Check out that illustration here, and check out his tumblr (which he seems to use more than deviantart these days) here.
