Art- the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
The world of Pokémon is undoubtedly one of the most influential media franchises in the world today. Its reach spans to every corner of the globe and has inspired millions in the form of every medium of content and pop culture, including art. E.S.G. honors this creative expression as we feature a community of talented artists, illustrators, and creatives who have used their vast imaginations to create stunning esports and gaming related art.
In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of Pokémon, E.S.G. will also acknowledge and showcase the outstanding work from some who have dedicated much of their talent to the world’s largest media franchise.
In this edition, we look at the work of digital artist from Mexico Kori.
The sophistication of Crystal Cave from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky is wonderfully illustrated in this digital piece. A majestic display of attention to detail!
Charizard enjoying the summer.
Charizard has been a fan favorite among Pokémon fans for many years. Its powerful presence and overall likability continues to resonate with many today, including Kori. This marvelous digital illustration shows the elegance of the iconic fire-flying type as he gracefully soars above the oceans with style.
Shaymin joins the fun.
This splendid illustration of some of the most endearing Pokémon out there just brings a smile to your face and joy to the heart.
[I am passionate about art because] I like to be able to express the ideas that I have in my head. I also love trying color combinations 🙂 – Kori
Lucario’s mega evolution.
The mythical Aura Pokémon Lucario is highly revered for its intelligence and is one of the most layered Pokémon in the series. This piece from the amazingly talented Kori is a perfect tribute to the elegance of the character. It’s a fascinatingly divine display of creativity, and one that captures the wonder of Lucario’s mega evolution in a seemingly alternate dreamland. #Angelic #Heavenly #Spiritual #Hashtag
A very special gift.
Is there anything, ANYTHING, more charming than this (rhetorical question)!!? This is such a lovely showcase of one of the most beloved Pokémon, Eevee.
You know you want to see them again!
It is indeed a pleasure to see these creatures again, especially in the form of Kori’s uncanny ability to illustrate their adorableness through digital art. The gift that keeps on giving.
Most popular Pokemon.
The icon and face of the franchise itself, Pikachu has been the talk of the Pokémon world for every bit of its 25-year existence. Here we have a stylish Pikachu rockin’ some Nike’s and looking oh so fresh and clean, courtesy of the amazing work from Mexico’s own, Kori.

Favorite Pokémon Memory- The first time a wild Latias appeared to me, I did not know of its existence and I was very surprised. I remember that day in elementary school and didn’t stop thinking about it.
