A Pokemon fan combines the designs of Charizard, a Fire/Flying type, and Chandelure, a Ghost/Fire type, into one impressive piece of fusion art.
Although Charizard and Chandelure don’t seem to have much in common in terms of design, a talented Pokemon fan created fusion artwork that successfully mixes the two Pokemon. Pokemon fusion art is very popular with the gaming community due to the large number of available pocket monsters to combine, and the number is about to get even bigger after the release of Pokemon scarlet and violet in some months.
With so many pocket monsters featured across generations of Pokemon games, there is no shortage of creature creations for talented artists to try and mix and match. However, despite the myriad Pokemon fusion art on Reddit, this new design combining Charizard and Chandelure managed to stand out. Created by a Reddit user known as HoundoomKaboom, the artist used pixel art for the piece, and they were able to pull together some of the best parts of both Pokemon’s designs.
Although Charizard looks like a dragon in appearance and Chandelure literally looks like a chandelier, HoundoomKaboom was still able to blend the seemingly disparate designs well. For starters, the fusion Pokemon’s body retained the dragon aspect of Charizard. However, the artist cleverly changed the color scheme to reflect Chandelure’s design. For example, the Fusion Pocket Monster had mostly black coloring, and its wings and fire had a purple appearance to match the ghostly flames seen in Chandelure’s design. Additionally, the edges of the Pokemon’s wings have been given a more ornate look.
By combining the designs of Charizard and Chandelure, some Pokemon fans on Reddit have been called back Pokemon Uprising. This fan game features Delta Pokemon, and players such as MemeGodFusionK thought this game’s Delta Charizard resembled the fusion art created by HoundoomKaboom.
It should be noted that this Charizard and Chandelure fan art is far from the only fusion done by HoundoomKaboom. In fact, the Reddit user even stated on his profile page that he “likes” to do Pokemon the art of fusion, which means more impressive works of art could follow. A few examples of fan art already done by HoundoomKaboom include one that combines Spiritomb and Minior and another that imagines what Onix and Glalie might look like mixed together.
Interestingly, this fusion art by HoundoomKaboom isn’t the only Charizard news on Reddit. Over the past two weeks, fans have made various creations featuring this Pokémon, such as one player creating a custom Game Boy Color Charizard. Also, another fan recently showed off a Charizard he’s owned for 18 years since pokemon fire red. It will be interesting to see where this popular Pokemon appears next. Maybe HoundooomKaboom will decide to do even more fusion art featuring him in the future.
