Let's face it: The world would be a better place if we could each have our own pet Pikachu.

At this point, you've been late for work and skipping social gatherings, all in the name of playing the Pokemon game with endless amounts of enthusiasm -- maybe you've even caught all 150 or so characters in the game. If so, kudos: But even if you've mastered the app, it doesn't mean you've ever imagined Pokemon could look like this.

As it turns out, you haven't actually caught them all -- thanks to illustrator and character designer Totomame, you've got new IRL versions of these sneaky creatures to dote on. He combines the Nintendo versions with their real-life counterparts, creating a hyperealistic Pokemon that we could actually imagine existing in the world.

After seeing them, you're going to wish Totomame's versions were real -- and you're also definitely going to want at least one of them as a pet -- the blue mouse you'll recognize as Azurill is basically the most adorable creature ever.

Then again, if you were more into reptiles and amphibians, you could get one of these.

Wouldn't want to come into contact with an IRL-version of this guy.

This is genuinely adorable, all rodents should have fluffy balls on their tails.

You could sort of get one of these if you dyed your rabbit.

The artists illustrations are surprisingly realistic. This guy looks like a real menace.

Cat lovers will freak at the idea of having a Poke-version of their favorite felines.

And this guy simply could not be tamed, even if you tried.

Imagine how cool it would be to see one of these running around in the wild.

And what's not to love about a dashing Pokemon is his very own hat?

The artists creates dozens of these IRL Pokemon, each one rich with detail and hyperrealistic.

And finally, milk would be so much more interesting if they came from an IRL Miltank.
