An artist comes up with a stunning piece of art that reimagines what Spheal, an ice/water Pokémon, would look like as ice cream flavors.
The world of Pokemon is filled with many unusual pocket monsters that often feature unique designs. Sometimes the appearance of these Pokémon is inspired by real-world objects and wildlife. Several examples include the next scarlet and violet pokemon the titular Quaxly, who looks like a duck, and Magnemite, who looks like a magnet. Also, Spheal is another Pokémon that has a design based on a real-life animal.
As his name suggests, Spheal resembles a seal. It has a circular shape with short fins on the sides of its body. While the Pokémon may resemble a stamp, that didn’t stop a player from comparing it to another real-world object; one that is less apparent but much more palatable.
Recently, a player known as ariamisu on Reddit decided to mix Pokemon and ice cream in a piece of art he made, choosing to feature Spheal from the Pokemon series in the picture. While many gamers have created artwork starring this chubby seal-like creature, few have likely created an image that transforms the pocket monster into different types of ice cream. Yet that’s exactly what this Reddit user did.
In the image, ariamisu showed six different Spheal, all with a unique flavor. Adding to the appeal of the image was the fact that the Pokémon was conveniently shaped like a scoop of ice cream. Surprisingly, the artist managed to include redesigns for each Spheal corresponding to Neapolitan, Pistachio, Cookies and Cream, Razzberry Sherbet, Coffee, and even Onion. the Pokemon fan gave each flavor of ice cream a different selection of colors to help sell the look of each one. For example, the Spheal from cookies n cream had a black underside with a predominantly white top side similar to the flavor it represented.
Since posting this artwork on Reddit, many Pokemon Unsurprisingly, fans were quick to offer suggestions on other flavors the artist should try to get Spheal to represent. With over 2,900 upvotes in just one day, many gave potential ice cream flavors to try. “Must. Have. Pumpkin Spice Spheal!” I-am-a-me said on Reddit, and some other suggested flavors included salted caramel, cotton candy, and chocolate mint, and ariamisu even revealed that her favorite flavor was coffee.
While this mouthwatering Spheal art is certainly memorable for many fans, it’s just one of many pieces of Pokemon fan art on the internet In fact, there is no shortage of creations starring Spheal. For example, a player recently made a cute animation of Spheal in Blender that saw the pocket monster spinning around in a small body of water. Time will tell what other pieces of Pokémon starring fan art will be shared with the community in the coming days.
