Highlights A creative Pokemon fan has designed a unique Paradox form called Iron Blaze for Typhlosion, giving the popular Pokemon a futuristic and metallic look. The design lacks details about any potential type changes, but the fan artwork showcases Typhlosion’s head resembling a helmet. The trend of creating Paradox forms for Pokemon is still going strong, with fans producing impressive designs for various Pokemon like Lugia, Squirtle, and Gengar.
A creative Pokemon Scarlet and Violet fan recently came up with an amazing new design for Typhlosion, a unique Paradox form that suits the Pokemon very well. Paradox forms originally appeared in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, and have inspired countless fans to make their own Paradox forms for Pokemon, giving them both future and past forms, and sharing them online with the community.
Typhlosion is a fairly well-known Pokemon from the second generation of the series. It first appeared in Pokemon Gold and Silver as the final evolution of one of the starters, the Fire-based Cyndaquil. Over time, the cute fire mouse evolves into Quilava at level 14, and then Typhlosion after gaining level 36. Over time, Typhlosion remained fairly popular, being one of the most recognizable starters, and it was recently featured in a Tera Raid Event in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. However, it didn’t get any official Paradox forms in the games, and one fan decided to change that.
The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet fan Ok_Juggernaut_8048 has now created a special Paradox form for Typhlosion called Iron Blaze. This new design seems to be a futuristic version of the Pokemon, as it keeps the original shape of the creature, but gives it a metallic look, with Typhlosion’s head looking like some sort of helmet. The design lacks more information about this form, though, such as if it changed its type from purely Fire to Fire/Steel, or Fire/Dark, for example.
Ok_Juggernaut_8084’s piece of art is not the only fan-made artwork featuring Typhlosion to have come out recently. A few weeks ago, another fan created Mega Evolutions for Typhlosion, as well as the evolutions of the other starters of Gen 2. Of these creations, Typhlosion certainly stood out among its peers, as it slightly changed its color scheme, as well as received a whole visual overhaul. Meganium and Feraligatr, on the other hand, look bigger, but still very similar.
Overall, it seems that the trend of giving creative Paradox forms to Pokemon is far from stopping anytime soon. While it may have reached its peak soon after the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, it’s not hard to find several interesting designs coming out recently. For example, incredible artworks featuring Paradox versions of Lugia, Squirtle, Celebi, Gengar, Tentacruel, Dewgong, and many others appeared in the last few weeks. Hopefully, Pokemon fans will continue to share their amazing work while they experiment with fan art.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available on Nintendo Switch.
