I've a soft spot in my heart for all things Pokemon. I never realized just how moved I would be by Pokemon GO, which was a real hot topic for a real hot second. In my circles anyway. I also love Game of Thrones, like I really dig the TV series and the 'Song of Ice and Fire' novels they have been pulled from. But, who doesn't I guess?
These two titans of entertainment have been steadily making gamers and viewers frothy at the mouth over the last few months, what with the release of Pokemon GO, the constant deluge of Pokemon unveilings for Sun & Moon, and that explosive as f**k ending to Season Six of GoT! That's why I wanted to bring these pieces of outstanding fan art to your attention, reader.
In a collection named 'A Song of Blue and Red', one sensational artist has brought together the might of these phenomenons and created an homage so good, it just has to be shared.
This Fan Art Is Dark And Full Of Pocket Monsters
Artist Kaleb Raleigh has conjured up entirely new Pokemon based on the sigils of the houses in GoT. Yes, including the flayed man from House Bolton – which is probably my favorite tbh! Taking the house animals and their favored weaponry or flora, watch as direwolves and gigantic three headed dragons become things you could actually, maybe, cuddle, if you trained them well enough.
Man, I really, kinda wish Westerosi 'mons existed...
The Night's Watch
The White Walkers
What did you make of these?
Pretty amazing right? if you liked what you saw, get over to Raleigh's DeviantArt page and scan your eyes over more Poke-awesomeness!
