Some of you may have seen these, but I doubt most have. These are what appear to be promotional cards of each Gen I Pokémon, including Mew. These must have been made shortly after the games, but I'm just guessing. You'll notice some oddities here, as most each Pokémon is performing a move, and Sugimori has drawn them performing them as he originally imagined (so yes, classic Sugimori FTW).

    These are pretty cool! It's nice to see drawings where they're in more dynamic poses.

    Poor Electrode, being another victim to tentacle rape.

    Psyduck and Ditto seem to be being treated as butt monkeys the most in these cards.

    I've seen these before. The Electrode one is interesting, I didn't know they could open up. And the Cubone one, that's possibly the closest we'll see of its face.

    Much better than the new art. Not that the new Pokemon have bad design, it's more about the artwork. New Pokemon would look good if drawn this way too.
