List Rules Vote up your favorite pieces of Pokémon battle fan art.

Fan art of Pokémon battles is even better than the real thing. Well, the real, fictional thing, at any rate. Regardless, the passion of these wildly skilled fanatics shines through in these intricate, stunning, and often realistic versions of Pokémon battles.

The source material is such a fun one to work with because it offers a wide array of characters and a kaleidoscope of color. That, coupled with the vision and imagination of the artists recreating Pokémon battles, results in some wickedly cool imagery.

Some of the most stunning pieces are those that depict the little guys—Pikachu and Eevee, for example—taking behemoths like Mega Charizard or Gyarados. Let's just say the small fries can hold their own too. You might want to don your eclipse sunglasses for this list of the best Pokémon battle fan art because it's bright and eye-popping.
