Whoa man these are really cool
Each of them has their own atmosphere to it, and I can see that you like to delve into drawing the more mysterious and dangerous side of Pokemon.

Your own style also shines though here--especially with the shading and the show of personality of each Pokemon. Er, hopefully I'm making sense.

Anywho, while it's good to have a unique style like yours it tends to also be fun to explore other styles; not only would it be a new and possibly challenging experience, it would also serve to improve your art as well as your original style. Shading with odd colours (like purple or orange) tends to produce a really cool effect, so maybe you could try that?

You don't really have to listen to me, but I would love to see some more variation here because you're obviously a talented artist.

Now, moving on to each individual piece, I'd say that the Alakazam and Umbreon were pulled off well. The Pidgeot however, looks a little bit stiff (though I must say the wings are pretty stunning). Maybe you should look up a couple of pictures of a bird in the pose you were going for? From my perspective it seemed like it was about to land and begin some sort of important mission or relay urgent news, but I'm probably wrong, ahaha

I'd have to say that my favourite piece here is the Gyarados; it looks like a hard to pull of drawing, and you've done well on it. The rain is great, but I think you should look at a few references for waves. Either way, those waves are probably better than any of the waves I've ever drawn pff
Also to add more depth, you maybe could have made Gyarados seem longer or blurred his tail just a bit to make it seem more like foggy, stormy, unclear weather. I don't think it would subtract from your focal point either because Gyarados himself has some bright colour on him in the form of the glowing eyes and Life Orb.

And er... I type too much, sorry!
But, I hope I've helped.
