A Pokemon fan has made a new evolution for Hawlucha, showing what this Pokemon would look like, along with information and stats. Their creation attracted positive reactions on social media, showing the creativity of Pokemon fans in designing new forms for their favorite Pokemon.
While there are Pokemon with different evolutions, such as Eeeve, Tyrogue, and Wurmple, other critters haven’t had the same luck. One of them is Hawlucha, a Fighting/Flying-type introduced in Gen 6 that won the hearts of fans with its wrestling-inspired design and personality. Although it’s a popular Pokemon with a prominent appearance in the anime as one of Ash’s Pokemon, Hawlucha never got a regional form, evolution, or even a Paradox form. But to satisfy the curiosity of Pokemon fans, a talented artist showed what it would be like if Hawlucha finally achieved a new form.
Pokemon Fan Designs ‘New’ Loyal Three Based on Different Pokemon
One member of the Pokemon community creates a second Loyal Three trinity by redesigning the appearances of a few existing Pokemon.
Instagram user OnduRegion has created a new evolution for Hawlucha called Halcombate. This Fighting/Flying-type Pokemon stands out for its robust build, which retains the colors and characteristics of Hawlucha’s design. Some parts are different, however, such as the red and white wings, while Hawlucha’s are red and green. Halcombate shows an imposing presence thanks to its mask-like design that gives it a powerful look. To create the Pokemon, the artist used as inspiration the late Mexican wrestler El Santo, the costume of an Aztec warrior, Batman’s suit donned by Christian Bale, and Ken the Eagle from the anime Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.
In addition to the impressive new evolution for Hawlucha and its shiny form, the artist contextualized Halcombate with information such as moves and stats that would almost make it one of the fastest Pokemon of all time. They reveal an interesting detail: to evolve into Halcombate, Hawlucha must first use the skill Aero Gala 20 times. The artist also defined the Pokemon’s abilities, Moxie or Aerodynamic, and the hidden ability Mold Breaker, the same as Hawlucha. When telling who Halcombate is, the Pokedex entry reveals that this Pokemon likes to battle stronger opponents. If the opponent is weaker, Halcombate will help its adversary improve in combat.
Pokemon has over 1,000 creatures, but fans are always producing fan art with creative redesigns. OnduRegion, in particular, is an artist whose work focuses on giving Pokemon new evolutions or Paradox forms, such as the Paradox forms for Mega Mewtwo X and Y. With Halcombate, the artist achieves a result that elevates Hawlucha’s lore and visuals, resulting in a Pokemon that fans would likely have no trouble imagining as part of an official Pokemon game.
Pokemon is a franchise that needs no introduction. One of the most successful media empires in history, Pokemon spans games, television, films, manga, merchandise, music, and more.
