These ‘Oh-Wow’ Super-Realistic Versions Of Your Favorite Pokemons Will Surely Blow Your Mind

Sometimes, it can be so hard to remember that the Pokémon is just a cool game meant for children’s entertainment, especially that those little pocket monsters have now evolved into super-realistic versions. Get ready to be mind-blown! Here’s a selection of Pokémon characters redesigned by artist Joshua Dunlop in a series of images he dubs ‘Pokémon Zoology’.


Everyone loves the Bulbasaur! This small frog monster could be more marketable in this form. The artist rendered it a light-green blue body to make it look realistic. Add this to the blue-green spots, and look at the fiery eyes, and tell me that it’s not adorable. Well, every one of us would surely love seeing this monster evolve into a realistic Ivysaur or Venasaur.


Who among you would love to see Charmander turn into a hypsilophodon with a tail on fire? Everyone surely does! Well, this image is not actually like the lizard Pokemon monster, but there’s no doubt about it- it’s one of a kind impressive! It looks like no monster can beat Charmander now! And wait ‘til artists see more of the Kanto native to have a cool painting of this monster.

Your well-loved turtle Pokémon looks really awesome in its long curled tail. And while you’ll be amazed when it moves on its two feet or on its all fours, the real-life version looks stunning with its toes and fingers on its flippers. This is indeed a legit cute real Squirtle.


Let’s enjoy a real-life version of the cute mammalian monster with a brown fur and a bushy tail with a cream-colored tip. This image of our favourite ‘Eevee’ looks like it’s evolving into a powerful Flareon. Just state at its eyes and you’ll get a scary but still cute look from her, with its big ears of course and the lovely pink paw pads. The artist didn’t even forget the furry fur-collar.


Who won’t forget the adorable water-type monster who has trouble walking on feet due to lack of arms? Well, she may get unbalanced, but this real-life version of Poliwag looks interesting. It may look a bit of a penguin, or a tadpole, whatsoever, but it is really incredibly mind-blowing. We love the spiral on its tummy!


You want Oddish! Well this real-life version of the grass type monster Oddish looks surprisingly cool. Mind you, it’s not a veggie, so don’t put it in your garden salad. The artist really nailed in coming up with this real Oddish monster! Kudos to him!


The fluffy Ballon Pokemon, Jigglypuff shows us its furry side in its real-life version. Its round-ball shape and pink skin add to its well-sketched rubbery skin looks really amazing. Wait, everyone surely loves the tuff on the forehead. Or is that a fur?


This real-life version of the Ground-type Pokemon looks incredibly realistic in a vivid artistic background. The blend of brown skin and its cute brown eyes show how lovely Diglett can be if it was a real Pokemon monster.


This artistic resemblance of Butterfree only proves one thing. Its purple body really looks too good. Everyone surely looks forward to more real-life version of this insect-type monster. Oops, what about waiting for its evolution in Mega Butterfree real life? That sounds exciting!


Your favorite classic Pikachu really looks stunning in this super-reality version. Get to see Pokémon’s main monster start as a cute and little creepy bunny rabbit. It’s as if it creatively sprung from the modern-day Pete’s Dragon with a bonded cabbage on its tail. Well, Charmander has to get ready, Pikachu got tail on fire!

If you can’t get enough of Pokémon, then these real-life versions of your favorite pocket monsters will surely leave your mind blown!

Kung Fu Yoga Review: Jackie’s Peppy Bollywood Dance Moves Save The Day

Have you grown up watching action superstar Jackie Chan’s endearing goofiness and comic timing in his action comedy movies? Or have you missed his expert kung fu moves? Unfortunately, his latest movie with Indian actor Sonu Sood, entitled ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ didn’t do all the beats, except for his fancy Bollywood-style dance moves.

And this is such a pity because Chan is known as an expert jokester. And many JC avid fans thought that this mixture of Kung Fu and Yoga in one movie, with Hindi-China yada yada, is supposed to be a barrel laughs for everyone. But the jaded kung Fu moves were obviously hardly labored, and they’re a yawn.

Here, Jackia Chan is an India Jones- themed archeologist hunting for valued Indian treasures with the help of younger assistants in this reunion movie with director Stanley Tong. When a lovely Indian professor, played by Disha Patani as Ashmita, approaches him with a map of Indian treasures from the Magadha Dynasty, Jack decided to do the exploration with his helpers.

The story starts with an animated comic that displays a war between the warriors from the Tang Dynasty and the villain general Arunasva. Next, there’s a cartoonish portrait of, like, 300 BC stuff. And frankly speaking, moviegoers and critics think that the movie makers should have chosen a better tittle than ‘Kung Fu Yoga’. Aside from a vague mention of Yoga’s breathing techniques, the movie has actually nothing to do with yoga.

The adventure takes the cast from one unusual destination to another, from an encounter with wolves in Tibet, an action-packed car chase with a lion in Dubai and hungry bunch of hyenas in Rajasthan. And of course, there’s the group of human villains equipped with raging guns. A bit of the movie is taken in Dubai just to give us a cool car chase with Jackie having an unexpected guest lion at the back seat. The crashes and roars may have ensued, but they’re all a big yawn for moviegoers. Even the bunches of clichés about India are frankly more wearisome than funny.

On the good side, the only time this Indiana-Jones styled movie comes to life is a cool item with all the casts and some extras. A vigorous closing dance sequence, following an underwhelming and sober climax, pays tribute to Bollywood dance numbers. His preppy Bollywood dance moves prove two things. Chan can break a leg. And a dance and song choreographed by Farah Khan still prevails. And oops, by the way, don’t expect to see customary bloopers on the closing credits.

Kung Fu Yoga | Song | Jackie Chan, Disha Patani Action-Comedy Movie

Rounding off, Kung Fu Yoga is chastely intended for Jackie Chan fans who want to witness how he bonds with Indian actors and actresses in an Indiana Jones style movie. Sad to say, this movie is definitely not his best performance ‘coz we all know what he has already proven. Watch this movie only if you are in the mood to enjoy some humorous action sequences and gestures. And of course, give it a try if you want to see how Jackie Chan can sportingly shake a leg in a Bollywood-style dance number.
