Pokémon Fan Creates Pokémon as Armor – They Could Work in Monster Hunter

GOBC_Infernape

Lets pretend you haven’t been apart of the huge Pokémon Go craze. Trust me, we’re all there, myself included, which has actually taken away from some of my time from Blast Away the Game Review and Now Loading. However, deciding to take a break after hitting trainer level 10 and around 60 Pokémon, I decided to rejoin the world of social media and even gaming journalism. Trust me, the game is addictive, but fun. One fan by the name of “That Grumpy Old Bastard Creations“.

In his artwork on his Facebook page (the link above), he’s released 33 sketches that are quite fitting to Pokemon, and they honestly seem inspired by both Monster Hunter as well as Pokémon. It’ll be interesting to see if any of his sketches could inspire Capcom to team up with Gamefreak and Nintendo to see if they can make this happen. To check out the full gallery, take the link above and take a glimpse at his astonishing artwork and designs. While they are rough, they are concept pieces, and they are absolutely filled with creative imagination.

What armors out of his entire gallery would you like to see? I know that Umbreon looks mighty awesome with its scythe-like weapon.

Fans of the series are always pushing to be the best of the best and even causing the developers to plan ahead with how much of the franchise they consume. It’s not all that different anywhere, fans love the franchise, and the devs themselves love the franchise.
