Genshin Impact Fan Art Turns Characters into Pokemon


Genshin Impact continues to expand its gaming list with almost every new update. For example, the current version of Genshin Impact Version 2.8 introduces a new Anemo character named Shikanoin Heizou.

The game’s art style is inspired by anime, which often forces fans to try to reproduce their characters and put them in different environments. A new concept created by fans, posted on the game’s subreddit, combines Genshin Impact and Pokemon into one work of art.

Reddit user JhayAlejo showed an impressive fan art that turns some Genshin Impact characters into Pokemon. Redditor is known in the community for creating similar works that always manage to attract a lot of attention. Players are absolutely in love with the new Genshin Impact Pokemon set, as the post has gained more than 2 thousand votes. The first concept shows two Pokemon evolutions based on a newly released five-star character named Elan, who joined the game roster in the first part of the Genshin Impact 2.7 update.

Numerous fans claim that if it weren’t for Elan’s bones, they would never have been able to guess the character behind the design. Creating two Ghost-type and water-type Pokemon makes sense, since Yelan uses water, and her elementary skills allow her to disappear. The second concept also features two Pokemon, Ninjel and Vipotachi, and they represent the famous four-star character Cookie Shinobu. Pokemon’s design embraces the Cookie ninja theme and includes her signature green-purple color palette. Cookie Shinobu was released on the second banner of update 2.7, and it is a very strong support for Genshin Impact.

Fisticalf and Cervestigale are two Pokemon featured in the third art, and they are based on the most recent Genshin Impact character, Shikanoin Heizou. A couple of comments say they like how JhayAlejo managed to capture the essence of Heizou’s design and turn him into a Pokemon. Despite being a Catalyst user, Heizou is actually a melee character, which is probably the main reason that both Fisticalf and Cervestigale are combat-type Pokemon. Heizo can be recognized by the unique symbol on Chervestigale’s chest.

Although all three concepts have been well received by the community, it’s safe to say that the latter is definitely a fan favorite as it involves a three-step evolution of Pokemon. Evolution tells the story of how Rosein went from one of the strongest Harbingers to the Crimson Flame Witch.

Genshin Impact is now available on mobile devices, PC, PS4 and PS5. The Switch version is under development.
