Pokémon teams with Quentin Devine to create world’s biggest trading card mosaic

The Pokémon Company International has partnered with British artist Quentin Devine to create the world’s largest trading card mosaic.

Devine is an artist known for creating giant mosiacs and this creation consists of 12,987 individual Pokémon Trading Card Game cards and measures 71.54 square metres.

The finished mosaic, hanging at over 10 metres tall and 7 metres wide, was unveiled in Paris and forms the image of Pikachu, using the original iconic pose drawn by Game Freak illustrator Ken Sugimori.
