Anatomically Correct Pokemon Are The Stuff Of Nightmares
Deep down, we all know that Pokemon are pretty icky. Come on - when there are beasties in the Pokemon franchise that are made of piles of trash or mounds of slime, it's hard to ignore the fact that for every cute mouse, there's a grotesque abomination of nature out there in the wild.
Taking to Reddit, an artist and biologist has made sure that we're hyper-aware of just how disgusting even the sweetest-looking Pokemon are. Peeling back the layers (quite literally) of your favourite 'Mon, they've given us a series of anatomically correct Pokemon.
What Do Pokemon Look Like Beneath Their Skin?
An impressive post has been made in the Pokemon subreddit, that shows off the work of biologist and artist Christopher Stoll. It reveals in great detail the intricate biology of a series of Pokemon, and it's just as remarkable as it is revolting.
The post shows off detailed diagrams of Wobbuffet, Girafarig, and Smeargle - detailing how their guts and skeletons work, with horrifying accuracy. The diagrams not only detail that Wobbuffet is (as expected) mostly fat, but also that the paint from Smeargle's paintbrush tail is actually faeces. Yes, Smeargle has a full intestine and rectum running up the length of its tail. Boak.
It's a pretty icky way to interpret the Pokemon, and yet, it's so impressive that it's hard to look away - but it's not just Pokemon that have been split down the middle by Stoll. If you want to see more, he even has his own book called, PokéNatomy to slice and dice more cute critters.
What Do Among Us Crewmates Looks Like Under Their Suits?
Alongside the grotesque peek inside the bodies of Pokemon, Stoll has also dissected a crewmate from Among Us, to an equally stomach-churning effect. The body of the crewmate is loaded with viscera, with all of its guts seemingly stacked on top of itself, as well as eyes and teeth poking out of every corner.
If you thought cracking open a Togepi to see what's inside was gross, that's nothing compared to the Among Us guys. It's absolutely nasty, and frankly, we're not sure we'll ever look at a crewmate the same again. These works of art are amazing but just as horrible, and safe to say, we're seeing Pokemon in a whole new light.
