What If Poké Balls Were Actually Nesting Dolls For Adorable Pokémon?

Thing That Might Have to Exist


[View All on One Page]

I’ve always been a fan of nesting dolls, aka matryoshka. And it’s always fun when something not normally geeky gets turned geeky. We’ve posted some actual nerdy nesting dolls before but artist Michael Myers has done a few illustrations that look at the concept a different way. He turned Poké Balls into nesting dolls with perfect little monsters at the gooey center. Ok, I admit, I’ve taken this to a weird place. I digress. Meyers calls his Pokémon nesting dolls, Poketryoshka. Enjoy.
