This one, from Bulbapedia.
I have a few questions pertaining to it, hope someone can answer.

1) Who did this photo? Did they provide any background info?

2) Why are some artworks on it slightly diffirent from any Gen1 arts I've ever seen? I was trying to make a version without yellow text (to print out and hang on my wall*), and turns out that pictures availible separately (like Omanyte) aren't an exact match.

3) What kind of font it uses? It looks similar to "Andy Bold" ("Gotta catch'em all" font), but doesn't match, few details are diffirent and it's more vertically stretched.

* I just kept changing things in it (swapped Butterfree and Venomoth, replaced Mewtwo with Mew and few artworks with fanmade can see latest result here), so it occured to me that, as it's no longer authentic, I'd rather make my own version, close in style but diffirent.Hence me asking about font and art.

I think I've seen one of those before... The douchebag who lived across from me in my last neighborhood had a lot of obscure gaming s**t. In fact, those even look like the walls in his house... :thonkang:
Anyway, it's a nice find at any rate.
Ask me about betrayal.
Ask me about depression.
Ask me about death.
Ask me about destruction.
Ask me about hardship.
I've been through s**t.
If you need to talk to someone, my PM inbox is always open.

I doubt anyone cares, but I made a test print (at the printing service, it cost like 4$) of my mangled version (as doing original one in the same style is far into my to-do pile):

Also,a bonus (no, not the art from Beckett's magazine, these I had on my walls for a while):
