Watch out for Gengars because they’re dangerous and evil. Although with time and proper care from its trainer, this Pokemon could be less sinister and scary.

13. How to Draw Mew

Adding this mystical Pokemon to a trainer’s collection is challenging so make sure that you care for a Mew once you catch one because they rarely come by.

In the meantime, why not draw this Pokemon while waiting to capture one?

14. How to draw Rattata

Most Pokemon fans are familiar with this rodent-related Pokemon. Its catch rate is 43.9% so it’s highly possible that most trainers had the chance to catch one of them.

However, Rattata is still a valuable addition to a trainer’s collection especially when it evolves into a Raticate.

15. Psyduck Step-by-Step Tutorial

Don’t be so surprised that we added Psyduck to the list. It won’t be complete without this yellow Pokemon.

Bugs get a bad rap for being slithery and slimy, but Caterpie is an undeniable proof of the opposite: they’re cute and lovely.

Every trainer needs a Pokeball. This round device helps trainers catch and collect Pokemons from the wild. Throughout the years, we’ve seen different types and colors of Pokeball but this red and black one is a classic example.

Staryu is probably the coolest Pokemon out there (IMO) because it can communicate with the stars by flashing the red core from its body. Some Pokemons can swim, breathe fire, and fly, but a Staryu’s power is out of this world.

Legendary Pokemons

25. Palkia, the Legendary Spatial Pokemon

Pokemon stays relevant by drawing inspirations from the current popular culture. Take for example Palkia, a mythical Pokemon that fuses the might of Godzilla with the bizarreness of a Transformer.

So legendary are the powers of this Pokemon that even the humans in the story are struck with equal parts terror and admiration, to the point of forming a cult to its name.

26. Shaymin, the Legendary Gratitude Pokemon

Taking a step back from the imposing figure of the previous Pokemon, we turn to a humble yet no less legendary Shaymin, a hedgehog-like Pokemon whose size deceives its magnanimity.

27. Articuno, the Freeze Pokemon

Articuno, one of the three Legendary birds of the first generation, is as icy and sharp as it looks.

The ability to wield ice at will is a power that rivals that of Storm of the X-Men. (For Marvel stuff, check out our Marvel Perler beads).

28. Magikarp, the (Seemingly Weak) Fish Pokemon

A carp that transforms into a mythical-like dragon is bound to be legendary. That is the potential of a Magikarp, which sadly many aspiring Pokemon trainers fail to recognize.

To have a Magikarp is as lucky as having a koi fish, which you can recreate in these Koi Fish drawings!
