Open Challenge: Pokemon Redesign. Go nuts.
Yep. You read right. This is an open challenge to all opponents, a free-for-all brawl...of teh pokemon.
Don't lie. A lot of us have been fans. A lot of us are still. But then a lot of us AREN'T. It doesn't matter, just look at it this way. 493(!!) creatures to thumb through and turn into god-knows-whatever you'd like. You fans know you want a stab at your favorite critter. You cynics know you want to turn cute things into pitiful, ugly genetic freaks.
The rules are as follows: You can choose any pokemon you like, and redesign it in any style, for any purpose you like. / To make things interesting, you can also choose to do either a full evolutionary set (such as Pichu -> Pikachu -> Raichu) or a themed 'set' (such as Zapdos, Moltres and Articuno.) Bonus points for playing on their relationship in your redesign. You can post or do as many as you like, but you have to choose just one for the poll at the end of the tunnel.
Deadline: Competition starts on October 28th, and all submissions are due November 11th. We'll do a good ol' fashioned poll and see what comes up. "In Soviet Russia, fun have YOU!"
Unless, you know, you're afraid of pokemon. Or just challenges.
The first 386 are available here: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/animepictures.html (Thanks to Flip McGee for posting the link in the lounge.)
The new batch that came out recently can be seen here in sprite form. http://www.serebii.net/diamondpearl/newpokes.shtml
As Steph mentioned, you can use the following link to read their pokedex. Designing from the text in these entries alone might afford you a lot more flexibility than going off of their images.

Dangit, I really want in on this... I have a lot on my plate with the calendar and work though....
Here's a thought. Rather than looking at pics of pokemon, what if you ONLY look at the Pokedex entry? I mean, I could do a new styling of Pikachu just by looking at him, but I would get way more creative if all I had to go on was "Electric Mouse - It has small electric sacs on both its cheeks. If threatened, it looses electric charges from the sacs." Think of the color possibilites, proportion possibilities...
...when is the deadline? ^__^;;

That's the first 386, but by name alone. Maybe it's better that way. ;D
As far as the deadline goes, probably 2 weeks, starting once we get a good chunk of participants. About 5-10 people?
I was also thinkin' about maybe making it okay to do a full evolution series or an obvious set that goes together (Those Regi things?) applicable as a single entry, if you want to, a single pokemon entry would still be fine. Think it could be kind of interesting to see how people would address the change from Pichu to Pikachu. Evolutionary change over millions of years, or do they change that much as they age?

That last link, that's just batshit insane... I just want to make Picachu look a bit tougher, maybe even badass, and I get to see he evolves from something to himself and after that in something else...red hearts, green leafs....ah, the sickness...(wooo-ahk-ahk-ahk-aaa) This will be much funnyer than expected!

Sweet! Hehe, v0rbiss. Don't have to make it any crazier than you wanted. You can still do just Pikachu if you like.
