20 years ago this year, Pokemon came out in Japan. It didn’t hit the UK till 98′, but it’s earlier influences are still felt today. An entire generation had to “catch them all” trading cards and battling each other on their Gameboys, if you speak to someone in their mid-twenties now they’ll share with you the fond memories of that series.

So to hear that the series is 20 now is A) traumatising and B) Seriously traumatising. I mean come on, I still remember the day I got my shiny Charizard card in the school playground! To mark the occasion I’ve done a series of posters, each with the same theme, but, just like the games that started it all off, slightly different to one another. Each one focusing on the colours, and character’s, that made the series such a wide success.
