One artist has combined the Pokemon franchise with the Soul Eater series. The result is a series of cute drawings that does justice for both series, as we see characters from the anime coming together with various pocket monsters.
A Redditor with the handle dukepinball created custom stamps that bring together Pokemon and Soul Eater. The artist states that they created the stamps in Microsoft Paint and drew a total of nine pieces, which feature a number of different characters from Soul Eater being matched with a Pokemon that fits with them.
This includes stamps that show Maka hanging out with a Scyther, Black Star with a Greninja, Franken Stein with a Magnemite, and more. Even the iconic Sun and Moon from Soul Eater was replaced with a Solrock and Lunatone respectively. Dukepinball made great use of the colors that are featured in the stamps, capturing the different aspects of each character from the anime.
The stamps that dukepinball drew have been well received, with many stating that they are fans of Soul Eater and really enjoy seeing the anime being combined with Pokemon. The artist was praised for the colors and style that they used on the stamps, with one person commenting that they would buy the stamps if they were made into enamel pins. One stamp that especially got love featured Death the Kid with a couple of Duskulls, which one fan said was a great pairing.
The stamps that dukepinball drew are not the only combination of Pokemon and an animated series that has been done recently. A Redditor going by the name Troytheartboy drew a number of Pokemon as experiments from the Lilo and Stitch film. The drawings kept a lot of the aspects that were originally seen in the Pokemon while making changes that helped them fit into the Lilo and Stitch universe, such as giving some Pokemon noses or adding toes to fins. The drawings did a great job at combining Pokemon with the animated film, creating a beautiful mixture of the two properties. The works of both dukepinball and Troytheartboy are amazing mash-ups of the Pokemon series with animated franchises, showing that the pocket monsters lend themselves well to the art style of other worlds and universes.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will release for Nintendo Switch in 2022.
