People have been creating their own kinds of Pokemon since the start of the sensation decades ago.
While the recent Alolan Pokemon (based on the Hawaiian Islands) were certainly a breath of fresh air another place that would spawn an incredible set of Pokemon all of their own is of course Australia! Pixel artist Paul Robertson, best known for his work on the Scott Pilgrim game and his part in the popular series Gravity Falls, has taken the challenge to create a set of completely new Pokemon based entirely about Australia. These are based on not just animals, but also plants, food, places, and even sayings. Buckle your seat belts for this one, kiddos, for there are a whopping 151 to go through!
Redditor Niboswald has also taken the opportunity to add some context to what the Pokemon are based on for those of you unfamiliar with all things Australian. You can check out those nifty details HERE, or even HERE, HERE, and HERE.
