The original 151 Pokemon as imagined by 151 artists

Rare Candy brings them together and sells them for charity

Peter Le and Amy Kim thought it would be cool if they got 151 different artists to each take on one of the first-generation Pokémon, and present the collection in an art gallery called Rare Candy. Then they decided to sell the pieces to benefit charity.

Each artist tapped for this project was randomly assigned a Pokémon and given the freedom to choose a medium. The results range from ink drawings to full sculptures. Bidding has begun, and fan favorites like Gengar and Gyarados have already broken triple digit bids. My favorite? Rapidash.

Any who would like to see the gallery in person can do so until May 17 at 225 West Santa Clara Umpqua Bank in San Jose. All profits from the sales go to the charity Canines for Disabled Children, which gives physically disabled children their very own Pokémon service dogs.
