Pok√©mon-obsessed kids who grew into pok√©mon obsessed-semi-adults probably think they know everything there is to know about these mythical creatures. Honestly, though, it‚Äôs not good enough to merely ‚Äúcatch‚ÄĚ ‚Äėem all‚ÄĒto be a real pok√©master means knowing them inside and out. Literally.

Pok√©Natomy‚ÄĒAn Unofficial Guide to the Science of Pok√©mon¬†is a newly available book that takes a biological look at the original 150 Pok√©mon. Though the book was put up on Kickstarter back in October 2016, it was only recently funded and finally made available for purchase. The book features over 300 pages of colorful illustrations, coupled with information about each Pok√©mon‚Äôs anatomy and behavioral traits. Basically, it‚Äôs an Encyclopedia of Life, but for Pok√©mon.

It’s worth noting that there are many actually existing animals that look exactly like pokémon, and they deserve some love, too. But for those who still wish Nintendo would hurry up and release an app for Pokémon Stadium, PokéNatomy is a delight. For more info, check out Christopher Stoll’s site here.
