What if Pokemon were all cosplaying girls?

Seems like this was the question in an Poke-artist’s (sure why not call them that), as they transformed all 493 Pokemon into cosplaying girls. Its a little dated as there are no new Pokemon from the Black and White versions on the DS ( this was made in 2008). Nonetheless, perhaps this will inspire a new meaning to the phrase Gotta Catch ’em All.

Nintendo has set up a teaser site for a new original IP on the Wii for 2011 currently titled “Pandora’s Tower”(link here) Good to see that Nintendo still seems to be supporting the Wii through 2011, now if they could just localize some more of those Japan only games.
