An incredible piece of fan art depicts what classic Pokemon evolutions could look like in a potential India based region in a future title.

p>Pokemon is one of the biggest gaming franchises in the world. The classic Nintendo RPG series about catching pocket monsters has seen several generational changes over the years, with many mainline titles, and a number of spin-offs, that continue to top sales charts with every release, with Pokemon Legends: Arceus already being a massive sales success following its release in January 2022.

Every region in Pokemon deepens the world’s mythology, as fans have gravitated to every new corner of the world that is added to the game's universe. More noticeable are the various Pokemon that inhabit the different regions and which are specific to places such as Sinnoh, Johto, or Kanto. These regions themselves have also been noted for being based on real world countries and locations such Japan, Paris, and even the Galapagos Islands.

While the games have seen a variety of locations across the world be adapted for the series universe, one country that Pokemon hasn’t explored yet is a region based on India. However, on Reddit’s r/Pokemon, user a526135 showcased what that specific region would look like and how the various Pokemon in the region would be depicted in the proposed Pokemon Cloud and Soil.

According to their commissioned artwork, this hypothetical region would feature predominantly Poison, Dark, and Fairy type Pokemon, like Ekans, Poochyena, or Litleo for example. Many other types, such as Dragon and Fighting Pokemon, would also be featured, and a few specific Pokemon are depicted with different respective evolutions, such as Eevee’s evolution into a steel type Pokemon like Titaneon.

These pieces of artwork are another case of incredible fan made works in the Pokemon community, that goes above and beyond in emulating the art style and features of the different monsters that appear in the game. Fans of the series have always been passionate about their fan-made projects, whether it be extensive portraits or fan art that crosses over with other series like Monster Hunter, and to see this continue in such an extensive and detailed way is really fascinating.

Overall, while other pieces of fan art, like a previously showcased 3D render of Professor Oak's lab, showcase the love fans have for Pokemon's world and characters, these particular pieces show that there are always more Pokemon to discover in the world, and that Game Freak should continue to find ways to expand the world and its growing roster of creatures.
