A wise man told me earlier this morning that the sun never sets on the Poké-Empire and I believed him wholeheartedly. Pokémon Go has proven itself to be a great first step towards augment reality games and has also been the source of some odd events here and there. Despite a few slight mishaps, the hype train for Pokémon Go is still going strong. The proof is in the fact that the team leaders of Pokémon Go were only just revealed to the world during Niantic's panel at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend and the internet is already awash with amazing fan art.
Not a lot is known about the leaders and who they are but that didn't stop the world from going crazy about them. So first and foremost, let's have a look at the leaders of Team Mystic, Valor, and Instinct.
They all look pretty slick although Now Loading's own Jay Ricciardi takes issue with the fact that Blanche's belt seems wholly unnecessary.
That's neither here nor there, though. With only that picture to go on and the inherent traits of the team, artists all over the internet have already shown love to their beloved fearless leaders.
Without much of a backstory, fans have come up with their own to fill in the gaps for the leaders. I know I did. So here are my first impressions!
Spark of Team Instinct
Spark has been roasted on a constant basis. Rough, Spark, real rough. Although, he's also come off as the endearing little brother type —
— who's also kind of a dunce.
Candela of Team Valor
Team Valor's leader, Candela, has been depicted as being strong, confident, and hot enough to burn a house down just by staring at it.
Blanche of Team Mystic
And, of course, Blanche is the always cool and collected type. The kind that always uses her head and holds her cards close to her chest while exuding the quiet confidence of a senpai that you wish would notice you.
She probably got straight A's all the time or something like that.
I wish I could show you all of the awesome art that's been cropping up but that'd take up too much space. These are only a handful of the fantastic work done by fan artists the world over. Between the great art that's coming out and the awesome tunes people are releasing, I absolute cannot wait to see what people come up with next!
