- A creative Pokemon fan designed their own Electric-type Ninetales variant with a lightning-white appearance and yellow bolt-like crest.
- Game Freak has been experimenting with different Pokemon forms to refresh the franchise without introducing too many new Pokemon.
- The recently released Palworld game, which features creatures similar to Pokemon, has sparked controversy among loyal Pokemon fans.
A creative Pokemon fan has come up with their own design for an Electric-type alternate variant of Ninetales. Because there are so many different regional variants officially introduced by the developers in previous generations, fans are constantly inspired to come up with their own Pokemon designs.
The long-running Pokemon franchise is coming up on three decades soon. While Generation 10 of the mainline series seems to still be a while away, new current-gen remakes and spinoffs are rumored to be announced sooner or later. With so many titles and games available right now across different consoles and platforms, however, Pokemon fans have an endless amount of content to go through to tide them over until the next big thing.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Announce New Paradox Tera Raids
Following the seven-star Blaziken Tera raids, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet pull back the curtain on new Tera raids against formidable Paradox Pokemon.
Redditor yzziB, who regularly comes up with unique Pokemon designs, posted an alternate version of Ninetales. This time, the popular Gen 1 Pokemon, which already has a regional variant in the Ice/Fairy-type Alolan form from Pokemon Sun and Moon, gets an Electric-type version. It’s not clear if this design is meant to be a regional variant, but the Electric-type Ninetales is a lightning-white fox with a yellow bolt-like crest on its head, a golden mane on the back of its neck, and what looks like electricity or sparks trailing from its paws. Meanwhile, its trademark nine tails are bushy and colored dark gray, evoking a storm cloud, with yellow streaks at the tips symbolizing more electricity. YzziB also didn’t forget to create a Shiny form of the Pokemon, with the yellow and gold elements traded in for an electric blue, akin to Alolan Ninetales.
Developer Game Freak has been increasingly experimenting with creating different forms of already existing Pokemon, as it’s a good way of freshening up the franchise’s huge roster without introducing too many new additions to the Pokedex. There are some players who feel that there already too many Pokemon, so regional and other alternate variants might have been a way to compromise. Because of this trend, some speculate that the next rumored Johto and Unova Pokemon games could have a modified mascot or legendary to change things up.
In the meantime, the Pokemon world has its hands full with the recent release of Palworld on PC, Xbox One, and the Xbox Series X/S. The action-adventure survival game features Pals, creatures that many have pointed out seem to be directly influenced by or copied from Pokemon and has become popular for its comedic and sometimes shocking take on the genre. Loyal Pokemon fans are not too happy with the idea of Palworld, resulting in a brewing fandom war that’s already going extreme.
