Just about every Pokémon announcement has a habit of dominating social media — what’s trending and with hashtags. The 23 year-old franchise has built a strong following, one that’s full of creatives who are constantly getting inspired by the innovative pocket monster designs. It’s never a surprise when fan art from professional and hobby artists starts popping up for newly announced ‘mon, especially brand new starters — and you can expect that to happen as soon as an hour after they make their world debut.
From fan artists in college to artists who worked on the concept of Pokémon Detective Pikachu, here’s just a small slice of how Scorbunny, Sobble, and Grookey have been interpreted in a variety of mediums!
Realist Sobble – by RJ Palmer
Sorry I'm late with this guy but I had to finish my real work before jumping in. Sobble is pretty dope, hopefully it stays a lizard through its evos. Also I feel like no one is talking about how it can apparently turn invisible. #PokemonSwordShield pic.twitter.com/UVagwmy4n3
