Get into the spirit of Halloween with Junji Ito's Pokémon illustrations

Japan News - Fri, 10/17/2014 - 15:00

I may not be knowledgeable in the realm of horror stuff, but there's something interesting about seeing Junji Ito (Uzumaki, Gyo) create a series of scary Pokémon illustrations throughout the month of October. While I haven't read Ito's works yet, the current piece that he did for the collaboration project managed turn Banette into a creepier spirit than before.

Seeing that Banette goes after the people who disowned it when it was a doll, Ito's first piece captured the Pokémon's vengeful desire to bring turmoil to its victim. That being said, I can't wait to see his other ghost-type-related works, since there are many great themes that could strike fear into our hearts (such as a Yamask or Duskull piece).
