‘Pokemon’ Trainer Red And His Team Get The Nendoroid Treatment This Fall

Pokemon Red Nendoroid
Good Smile Company

As much as we all love Ash and his Japanese source character Satoshi, there's a certain charm about Pokémon's generic playable trainer, Red. After all, even though he stars in a number of manga including Pokémon Adventures and the recent Pokémon Origins anime, Red is meant to represent you, the player. Take that and shape it in the 3.75" tall Nendoroid chibi style and you've got an action figure that may be among the very best (like no toy ever was).

Piper Thibodeau’s Redesigned Pokemon Are All I Want In This World [Art]

Art by Piper Thibodeau, cryptid-creations.deviantart.com

We see a lot of amazing art here at ComicsAlliance, but every now and then, I come across someone whose work is just so great that I immediately lose an hour browsing through their gallery and marveling at everything I see. That was exactly what happened when I ran across Piper Thibodeau, whose work includes incredible, adorable takes on cryptids and famous monsters, and -- the thing that really hooked me -- redesigns for over a hundred of the original Pokémon.

Admittedly, artsts taking a stab at redesigning Kanto's 151 aren't exactly a new thing, but Thibodeau's are on a whole other level from a lot of stuff, as evidenced by the fact that she has drawn not only the best drawing of Jynx that I've ever seen, but the best possible drawing of Jynx. Check out some of my favorites below!

Andrew Stewart’s Art Brings ‘Steven Universe,’ Pokemon And Other Video Games To Glorious Life [Art]

Art by Andrew Stewart, viruul.tumblr.com

Last week, the staff here at ComicsAlliance was marveling at Andrew Stewart's Cosmos fan-comic, but that's far from the only thing that he has to offer on the art side. As an illustrator, comic creator and storyboard artist, Stewart's constantly churning out pretty incredible stuff, to the point where even his warm-up sketches are pretty incredible.

That's why today, we've prowled through his gallery to pick out some of our favorites! Check below for art featuring Steven Universe, a brutal "video game monster hunter," and, best of all, Stewart's portraits of himself as a Pokémon trainer. Check 'em out below!

‘Pokemon Art Academy’ Will Teach You How To Draw Pokemon, Look For My Gallery Opening In 2015

Pokemon01

If I had any artistic talent at all, there's a pretty good chance that I would do nothing all day but draw pictures of Bulbasaur and Snorlax and their best friend Chris Sims -- who teaches them as much as they teach him. It's basically my dream life, but given my inability to draw anything more complex than, say, Voltorb, I've long since given up on it.

But now, Nintendo is trying to rekindle my dreams -- or at least, they would be if I was in Japan -- with the new Pokémon Art Academy. Set to be released on June 19 in Japan, Art Academy is designed to give players step by step instructions on how to draw your favorite Pokémon, including what appears to be the single greatest portrait of Charizard ever.

Google Maps Unleashes Pokemon To Create The Most Depressing (And Pretty Awesome) April Fools’ Prank Ever

Google Maps Pokémon Challenge

Folks, I have seen some cruel April Fools' Day pranks in my time. Heck, I just read through the last 15 years of Funky Winkerbean strips from April 1 a few minutes ago, so I thought I was immune to the pangs of disappointment, but no. No I am not. And I know that, because with their annual prank, Google has shown us a finer world and reminded us how far we have fallen.

Okay, so maybe I'm overreacting a little bit, but still! An April 1 update to Google Maps that adds Pokémon to international landmarks and allows you to catch them, learning to understand each other through the magic of friendship and battling? It is a glimpse of a world in which I want to live. Check out their video promoting the (pretty amazing) gag below!

Man At Arms Forges Honedge From ‘Pokemon X And Y’ [Video]

Man At Arms recreates Honedge the Pokémon

We've highlighted a few videos from Man At Arms, the web series where master swordsmith Tony Swatton recreates famous weaponry from movies and TV before, but to be honest, they're not usually my thing. Don't get me wrong, it's super neat to see the forging process that goes into recreating, say, Thor's hammer, and I can certainly appreciate the craftsmanship, but that's about it. Unless, of course, you tell me that they have made a real life Pokémon, in which case I am suddenly very interested.

That's what happens in the latest installment, where Swatton and his team recreate Honedge, the sentient sword that was introduced to gamers in Pokémon X and Y, and it's pretty awesome. Check out the video below!
