Pokemon Crossover Fanart

There are six days until Pokemon Black and White comes out in America. I am stoked. The real bummer is I have to go to church before I can get the game, but oh well. Out of anticipation, there are going to be quite a few pokemon related posts this week on whatever the heck I feel like. Today, it’s going to be a look at the amount of Pokemon crossover with other animes fanart out there. (If anyone is for some reason trying to keep from being spoiled for 5th gen, this post is not for you.)

In the world of anime fanart crossover, one of the one common and consistent is the Pokemon crossover.  Partially because Pokemon is just that dang popular. There is a huge fandom for Pokemon over in Japan, covering everything from the cute to the disturbing.  So the fandom is there, and there is a huge amount of fanart for Pokemon itself.

Ghost in the Shell (Btw, this is the most bitchin' pokemon from fifth gen)

That said, I’m not entirely sure why people like crossing over Pokemon with anime characters so much. It’s one of those questions that doesn’t have one a size fits all answer to the question. Some characters are so reminiscent of a pokemon that it just begs for a drawing of them together. Or it’s a verbal pun that begs to be drawn. Or a visual one.

But otherwise, who knows what causes a person to do these crossovers. Pokemon is rather easy to insert into any anime, and well-known enough that a lot of people do it. Maybe it really isn’t a surprise that it appears so often. And I’m not complaining. They are extremely entertaining.

Tohou. This artist is drawing every Tohou character with a Pokemon. Very ambitious.

    Some of these are so adorable! And of course, Kyubee and Pokemon has to be done.

    Green swinub??

  3. Great pictures! I don’t really think those Haruhi ones match up well, but the rest are adorable XD

    I’m planning to pick up my reserved copy of White as soon as GameStop opens on Sunday :3 We should battle/trade sometime (if you have Wi-fi that is).
