With a name like "Battle Royale," you would think that this was some kind of cutthroat competition in which contestants each receive a bag filled with food, water, and a murder weapon and must wear collars that explode should they get caught in a danger zone. Ya know, kinda like a movie based on a book that predates a certain other movie based on a book.

But no, this is a friendly assembly of like-minded Pokémaniacs who have each selected one of the original 151 Pokémon to doodle for a gallery at the Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The show, which opens on April 20, will showcase works from artists such as Maré Odomo (Letters to an Absent Father) and Zac Gorman (Magical Game Time).

A full list of participants and their chosen Pokémon is here. Some sample works are in the gallery below; all of the final pieces can be purchased at the show for $40.

Farts 'N' Crafts: Watch Dogs Vs. Mortal Kombat Vs. Garfield

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more

Farts 'N' Crafts: The Witcher 3 and warheads candy

This week, I stop mucking around with condiments, pasta, and watercolors and just do a good old-fashioned drawing. The subject? Geralt of Rivia, The White Wolf, star of The Witcher books and games. While drawing, I'm asked stupid questions by Bill Zoeker, who doesn't know anything about Witchers. Also, we eat very sour candies.more
