A fan of the Pokemon and Harry Potter franchises unites the two by mixing Ash Ketchum from the anime with the young wizard.
Pokemon fans like to mix the legendary Nintendo series with other franchises. This has led to great pieces from artists showing their love for both RPGs and other games, books, and movies. Pokemon Crossover art is a great way for players to show their love for multiple fandoms through a bit of art.
A series that fans have crossed. Pokemon with is Harry Potter. JK Rowling’s books took the world by storm, spawning a number of films and spin-off films, becoming a huge part of pop culture. Harry Potter is still going strong, especially with a new game called The Hogwarts Legacy is set to release sometime in 2022, and it’s a perfect franchise to mingle with Pokemon.
An artist known as Darthdoodles posted a piece they had drawn combining Pokemon with Harry Potter. Ash Ketchum is at the center of the play sporting a Hogwarts uniform and wand while Giovanni appears in the background in the fashion of the antagonist Voldemort. A Noctowl takes the place of Hedwig, Harry’s owl, while Xerneas stands in the background representing the protagonists’ Patronus. The drawing shows a Hogwarts crest at the bottom with Pokemon like Serperior and Murkrow representing the four houses of the school, and features a Pokéball like the Golden Snitch. To finish off the artwork, Ash’s Pikachu can be seen wearing the glasses Harry is known for, all while he wields his own wand. Darthdoodles did an amazing job of bringing the two series together, creating some art that both fandoms can enjoy.
Darthdoodles drawing has gained several fans. The artist mentioned that they couldn’t find a name for the piece, which led many commenters to think of their own. Ideas include Ash Castem and the Prisoner of Alakazam, Ash Castem and the Fire Pokéball, and Ashy Pottum. While many enjoy the work, some claimed that Pokémon Noctowl should be shiny, as those colors are closer to Hedwig’s.
darthdoodles’ Harry Potter mix-up is just one of many pocket monster mashups. A Redditor named honeybeewilde met Pokemon with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The artist took the initial Squirtle and changed his color palette to suit the characters from the comic series and cartoon show. They then put a red bandana on the Pokémon, mirroring Raphael’s appearance, and turned the artwork into magnets. Magnets are adorable and they’re a combination of two franchises that make a lot of sense.
