The arrival of the two new Game Freak titles is a worldwide success. Imagine how they would have been if they were launched in 1998.
Pokémon Sword and Shield have started the eighth generation of the saga, in full 2019, but how would this trip by Galar have been in 1998? If we look back, at the time of Game Boy Color it was Pokémon Gold, Silver and then Crystal that served as emblems of the brand in its possibly most defining stage; It was there when he finished catapulting and offered, in a unique way so far – without counting his remakes – a delivery with two regions: Johto and Kanto.
Sindorman artist has been in charge of making this tribute possible. We liked his work so much that we share it today, that a calendar week has elapsed since the launch of Sword and Shield. Because not only has the Sobble, Scorbunny and Grookey sprite, Galar's initials been recreated, but also the possible home screen of Zacián and Zamazenta – legendary of Sword and Shield – and other details that will recognize those who have played the first hour Starting these new iterations, with President Rose, a Pikachu Gigamax …
An artistic delight for Pokémon enthusiasts, made with a lot of respect and detail.
