The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Houses Make Much Better Pokemon Than The Actual New Pokemon

Just like real Pokemon, only hyper-violent!

It’s long been accepted by anyone with a shred of human decency that the only true Pokemon are the original 151, and all those that came after are hideous abominations unto the eyes that should be fired into the sun. The new generation, released earlier this year for Pokemon Sun and Moon, are especially heinous — the three starters are a cat that hocks fiery hairballs, literally just an owl and whatever the hell this thing is.

I am offended by this wet mess. Remove this Water Clown immediately.

Whoever’s job it is to crank out Pokemon until the heat death of the sun could take some inspiration from another pop culture mainstay that uses animals in weird and not entirely wholesome ways: Game of Thrones.

Artist Kaleb Ralaigh, aka SketchyCartoonist, has knocked up a bunch of new Pokemon based on the various Houses and their sigils, and it actually works super well. They’re just like regular Pokemon, only instead of fainting when they get beaten in a battle, they spout blood and have their heads graphically ripped from their bodies by the victor! Just like in real life.
