The Pokemon series has been a wellspring of interesting fan mash-ups to date – whether it be artists reimagining heroes from other franchises as Pokemon trainers, or recreating Pokemon characters in the style of other games. Well, here’s a little something similar that fans of the popular action game Hades will certainly love!
As seen below, an illustrator by the name of Erio has been reimagining the various deities of the game as Pokemon Gym Leaders – along with their own Pokemon partners as well! For example, Aphrodite takes on more of a fairy theme, with Sylveon and Hatterene by her side! Meanwhile, Athena takes on more of a Steel theme with Metagross and Aegislash as her team.
Take a look below:
