Talented artist Jublin is here to remind folks why battling pocket monsters is a really bad idea with a series of pictures dubbed 'Injured Pokemon.'
When you really think about the whole concept of Pokemon, it's actually got a gritty, dark undertone. Think about it: humans who capture creatures who then get pitted against each other in a grueling duel. Of course, it's all fun and games in the cartoon, but the series dubbed 'Injured Pokemon' will show you the realities of the battles that occur. Each of the characters is depicted as being beat down to the point where telling them to tough it out wouldn't be an option. Poor Pikachu has to stand on crutches, while Charmander has his tail snapped in half. Hopefully Ash will quit soon.
