A Pokemon fan created a stunning artwork showcasing all Gen 3 Pokemon arranged by their coloring, impressing and resonating with fans. The artist’s previous work includes an artwork featuring all Gen 2 Pokemon in a similar color-coordinated spectrum, with the Legendaries at the top. It remains to be seen if the artist will continue creating collages for the remaining generations of Pokemon, after successfully completing the first few generations.
A particularly dedicated and artistically talented Pokemon fan has decided to express their love for the franchise by drawing every single Pokemon from the third generation. Not only does the impressive drawing include all Gen 3 Pokemon, it also has them arranged by their coloring, resulting in a dazzling rainbow-like spectrum that is resonating with Pokemon fans online.
The third generation of Pokemon was first introduced to western audiences in 2003 with the release of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire for the Game Boy Advance. Considered by some to be somewhat of a “reset” of the series, Gen 3 later added several additional titles including Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen, as well as popular spin-offs Pokemon Colosseum and Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, which fans have voiced their desire to see brought back onto modern hardware.
The impressive collage of Gen 3 Pokemon comes from Reddit user PaulDrawsArt, who posted their colorful creation to one of the site’s Pokemon pages. The grand drawing begins at the bottom with purple and pink-colored Pokemon like Dustox and Sableye before moving up to blue. Arguably the largest section, it is occupied by the likes of Mudkip and Metagross, with Wailmer and Wailord taking up plenty of real estate. Moving up to the green/yellow section are where Pokemon like Sceptile and fan-favorite Flygon are found, and the top orange/red section contains Legendaries Groudon, Deoxys, Rayquaza, and Kyogre.
Intricately arranged and executed, the artwork has clearly been popular among other Pokemon fans, with the post amassing nearly 300 upvotes within just hours of posting. Fans have universally lauded the work as well, with things like “this is soo pleasing to look at” occupying the comments section. The art piece is reminiscent of another Pokemon fan’s work, who created an entire Pokemon color wheel. Featuring all Pokemon up to Gen 5, that fan art organizes each and every Pokemon into a color-coordinated circle.
While certainly an impressive piece of art, the colorful Gen 3 Pokemon drawing isn’t the first collage from the artist, as they have also crafted a painting featuring every Pokemon from Gen 2. Organized in a similar color-coordinated spectrum, the art piece features all 100 second-gen Pokemon, with the final forms of its starters – Typhlosion, Feraligatr, and Meganium – at the center of the image. The artist puts the generation’s Legendaries at the top of the frame, echoing the composition of the Gen 3 work above.
With the first few generations under their belt, it should be interesting to see if and when the artist posts collages of the remaining generations of Pokemon.
