Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield already has fantastic fan art

“Well that was quick.”

Not just four words that my imaginary girlfriend once said to me, but also an apt description of Pokémon fandom. Yesterday saw the official reveal of Pokémon’s next big evolution, with the unveiling of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. In it, there was a glimpse at the new region of Galar, a collection of green hills and frigid snowy landscapes inspired by the British countryside.

Which means that we’re finally getting Scottish Pokémon that will be canonical in the Pokedex, such as a new Fighting-type called Fakk Yuu. As for official reveals? Only a trio of new faces were shown off: The new starter Pokemon Scorbunny, Grookey and Sobble, the Clinically-Depressed type Pokemon. They look adorable, I think Grookey looks cheeky and Scorbunny once told me the world is going to roll me I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed.

Naturally, fans are happy. And passionate! Fan art has already begun pouring in, and so far the results are awesome. Here’s a gander at the finest art gallery that the Galar region has to offer:

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are out in late 2019. Coincidentally, that’s also around the same time that Nintendo is expecting to be given a license to print money.

            I’ll share once he’s done with it. The first image, that is. It’s, damn, it’s so brilliant. And that’s not just me saying that because it feels like he lifted the image out of my brain.
            As for the novel, dude, I’ve spoken about it quite a bit on this site. Fantasy. Geared toward YA, but has also been thoroughly enjoyed by adults.
            Currently in the process of approaching agents. Have a long list of rejections already. Faaaarking demoralising, I tell you. But we know it’s good enough (one of me best mates is my writing partner in this one). Hell, more than just “good enough”.

            Thanks man, I’m plugging away…

            Brent Weeks! He’s become one of my favourite authors. His new series is so good, I can’t wait for the next one.

            The story is NOTHING like that. Ha!
            There are huge frogs, but they’re not at all sentient, they’re just animals that one town uses instead of horses.
            They don’t even play a major role in the tale, but my mate loved the concept so much, he wanted to draw it first.
