Artist Noelle Stevenson, author of the webcomic Nimona, has never seen certain Pokémon, but did something fun for the Internet and Pokémon fans alike, and drew specific Pokémon without ever having seen them, guided by nothing but text-based descriptions. The results are pretty hilarious, and sometimes even better than the original Pokémon itself.
All descriptions quoted directly from Stevenson’s requests:
No. 1 | Bidoof
The description: "DRAW BIDOOF. HE WALKS ON FOUR SQUAT LEGS, HAS BROWN FUR, IS FAT, HAS THREE PUFF BALLS FOR A TAIL, A BEARD MADE OF SIMILAR PUFFBALLS, TWO SMALL BLACK EYES THAT ARE SPACED TOO FAR APART, AND TWO STUPID BUCKTEETH. HE LOOKS REALLY DUMB, FORREAL."
No. 2 | Keldeo
The description: "keldeo is an equine pokemon w/ light blue ears, neck, & swishy tail. its mane is orange & has 3 feathers sticking out of it. its hooves are dark blue and come up to points. it has a diamond in its chest & a lumpy horn about as long as its body."
No. 3 | Ludicolo
The description: "HAS A PLUM-SHAPED BODY. WEARS A HAT THAT RESEMBLES A SOMBRERO, BUT HAS SPIKES THAT FACE UPWARD ON THE BRIM AND A TUFT OF HAIR ON HAT'S TOP. IT HAS A DIAMOND SHAPED PANEL AROUND ITS EYES WHICH IS RIGHT BELOW THE BRIM OF ITS HAT. HAS FELIX-THE-CAT-ESQUE EYES WHICH SIT RIGHT ABOVE A DUCK BILL, (PERPETUALLY SMILING). STANDS UPRIGHT ON ELEPHANT-LIKE FEET MINUS TOES, GLOVE MITT-TYPE HANDS. THE REST OF ITS BODY IS COVERED IN FUR, WHICH HAS TWO HORIZONTAL ZIG-ZAGS ON IT. MAKE IT SO NUMBAH ONE!."
No. 4 | Machamp
The description: "HE'S GREY AND REALLY MUSCULAR, WITH FOUR ARMS (TWO SETS OF ARMS) AND TWO-TOED FEET. HE WEARS BLACK, UH, UNDERPANTS??? AND HE HAS A BELT WITH STUDS ON IT AND A P IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BUCKLE-TYPE-THING. HE ALSO HAS A HILARIOUSLY LARGE MOUTH/LIPS AREA AND THREE SPINES ON HIS HEAD...!."
No. 5 | Reuniclus
The description: "LIKE A TEDDYBEAR TYPE THING SUSPENDED IN A BIG ROUND BLOB OF GOO. ITS ACTUALL ARMS ARE STUBBY BUT IT HAS TWO MUCH BIGGER ARMS THAT ARE A PART OF THE GOO BLOB. IT HAS FOUR LITTLE PARTICLE LOOKING THINGS THAT LEAD FROM THE ACTUAL ARMS TO THE PALMS OF THE GOO ARMS, AND TWO LITTLE EGG SHAPED EARS THAT FLOAT IN THE GOO AND AREN'T ACTUALLY ATTACHED TO ITS HEAD."
