We recently celebrated the extraordinary Pokémon trading card game Card art by Yuka Morii and her flawless clay models photographed in nature. But it would be remiss to stop there, and while pretty much every artist working on the cards deserves credit, our attention is next drawn to Asako Ito and her 3D crochet Pokemon. Because they are incredibly adorable.

in the last few years, Pokémon trading card game has added all kinds of decorations, with more and more special cards to draw with alternate art, full art, trainer galleries and the like. This has undoubtedly made the cards that much more enticing to collect, with far more than a holo shine to seek out. However, it also had the side effect of making the “regular” cards feel far more disposable. Sit through any YouTuber or real-life kid opening packs and you’ll see them tossing such cards without a glance aside, hoping to end up finding that elusive rainbow-rare Mewtwo or alternate Aerodactyl. And that’s a shame when so many of these cards can be as beautiful as Asako Ito’s.

Ito created a total of 29 cards for the trading card game, starting with Sun Moon‘s base set and has been appearing regularly ever since. And since there are only 29 of them, let’s celebrate the whole lot! Using a technique known as amigurumi (literally means crocheted or knitted stuffed animal), their Pokémon cards really stand out from the rest.

Here’s every one of Asako Ito’s gorgeous handmade Pokémon creations.
