This Unique Pixel Fan Art for Pokémon Generation 9 Is Delightfully Retro

A skilled Pokémon fan shows off their excellent pixel Scarlet and Violet fan art, which depicts the new Generation Nine animals in an earlier style

A new fan animation depicts what the forthcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet might have looked like as one of the series' earlier, more pixelated chapters. The Pokémon franchise has come a long way from its early days on the Nintendo Game Boy. Since the release of Generation Nine, Pokémon enthusiasts have been hard at work producing intriguing fan art, particularly of the new starter Pokémon Sprigatito (Grass-type), Fuecoco (Fire), and Quaxly (Water).

Others have pondered what a fully pixelized rendition of Generation Nine's European-style environment might look like after some fans created 2D artwork of the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Starters in the manner of the original Pokémon Red and Blue.

According To A Leak, Rockstar Is Planning A Release Date For GTA 6 in 2024

sindorman, a Twitter user and online pixel artist, implemented this notion in their latest Pokémon fan animation, which depicts the player character, Sprigatito, Fuecoco, Quaxly, and the recently revealed Grass-type Smoliv in a vibrant 2D overworld that would fit perfectly in on the Game Boy Color.

The small, animated sprites and chiptune music (which is the Viridian City theme from the original Pokémon Gold and Silver) capture the feel of the older Pokémon generations quite well, with many other Twitter users praising sindorman's post and wishing it could be a full game in the comments section.

Since the initial reveal announcement, there have been a number of intriguing Pokémon Scarlet and Violet developments, including the addition of even more new Pokémon (such as the two new Pokémon Legendaries Koraidon and Miraidon) and the formal confirmation of the game's November release date. The most recent Pokémon Scarlet and Violet teaser also hinted at four-player co-op, introduced fans to the two new Professors who would aid players in their quest to gather every Pokémon species, and even gave fans a quick glimpse inside one of the series' iconic Poké Balls. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet appear to be an evolution of the long-running Pokémon series, but fans will always pine for the simpler 2D entries that first captivated the world in the late 1990s. Sindorman's most recent fan animation does an excellent job of converting the new universe of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet into the graphical style of these older Pokémon games, offering gamers a taste of how Generation Nine would have appeared on the Game Boy.
