Recently, designer James Turner is most notable for his work on the Pokémon Sword and Shield games, but his history with working on the franchise goes way back. In fact, Turner recently shared a treat particularly for fans of the 2006 Wii title Pokémon Battle Revolution.

During a tidy-up, Turner came across an old portfolio from 2009, containing designs for the protagonists of the game.

 

 

In a followup tweet, Turner also says he “designed all the characters [in the game] and oversaw the designs of the different outfits, which were drawn by another artist.” You can catch some examples of those characters below.

 

 

This isn’t the first time that Turner has surprised Pokémon fans by sharing his art on Twitter. Earlier this year, he paid tribute to Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, and even celebrated Star Wars Day with “Darth Pika.”

A lifelong Nintendo fan and a longtime editor at Zelda Universe, Reece will forever be grateful that he somehow dodged the Naughty List of Christmas 1998, when Santa delivered the life-changing gift of a Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, and Mario Kart 64. When he's not playing games, Reece is usually reading Punisher comics, delving helplessly into the weirdest depths of anime and manga, or spending time with his cocker spaniel Gracie -- the goodest girl ever!
