Less than 24 hours ago Pokémon finally revealed more about the Crown Tundra expansion including a new regional form of an old favourite: Slowking.
Galarian Slowking looks rather different to the original which was introduced in generation two while still maintaining the theme of a Slowpoke that has been altered by a Shellder biting onto its head.
As with most Pokémon reveals the internet has latched onto this reveal and has been pumping out high quality fan art – and some memes – to mark the occasion.
Also predictable with Pokémon news is that Twitter is the place to go to find a lot of these hard, and fast, working artists. Below we’ve embedded the work of a handful of our favourites from the last day. The one by user @CottonGravy is our pick of the bunch due to the sheer amount of character the artist has managed to work into the piece.
And, to reiterate, all of this work was done in less than a day. We don’t think any other property gets artists and other creatives fired up as much as Pokémon.
For those who missed its Slowpoke’s other evolution, Slowbro, also got a Galarian form to tie in with the previous Isle of Armor expansion. While Pokémon endlessly mining and reiterating its old work is a big joke at this point, we do think that these two are particularly good.
