Pokemon Fan Animation shows Klawf in black and white art style
Klawf, a new crab-like Pokemon available in Pokemon Scarlet and Purple, gets a makeover inspired by Pokemon Black and White in a fan animation.
A player delighted with the launch of Pokemon scarlet and violet made an animation showing the Rock-type Klawf in the art style of older games, pokemon black and white. Klawf is one of the new Generation 9 Pokémon and, as the name suggests, its design resembles that of a crab. As the gaming community awaits the release of Pokemon scarlet and violetthis recent animation reveals that some of these new pocket monsters are surprisingly good at the franchise’s older art styles.
This animation featuring Klawf was posted on Reddit by a user known as BobblaKei and managed to capture the unique look of this new Pokemon. According to the Reddit user, they had wanted to make a video that reimagined the Pokemon “kinda/sorta” in the pokemon black and white artistic style, and the end result was simply impressive.
In the clip shared by BobblaKei, Klawf was placed against a turquoise background and was facing forward. Although the animation was short, it conveyed the idea that the pocket monster was alive; it moved up and down slightly, suggesting it was breathing. Additionally, the Reddit user managed to convert Klawf’s 3D design from Pokemon scarlet and violet remarkably well at a 2D appearance. Some highlights of the Pokémon’s design included the Pokémon’s crab-like bulging eyes, which allowed it to see in all directions, and it even had tufts of a fur-like substance growing around the joints of the Pokémon. its paws and claws and above its mouth.
pokemon black and white are part of Gen 5 and released on the Nintendo DS over a decade ago. With that in mind, it’s understandable that some Reddit users felt nostalgia around this latest fan art featuring Klawf. The post shared by BobblaKei has already garnered several hundred upvotes and fans have praised the artist’s work. For example, one user said he liked the new pixel art look of the artwork. Also, another player said it reminded them of the sprites from the Mario and Luigi games on the Nintendo DS.
While this detailed animation from Klawf is impressive, it’s not the only fan art showcasing this next Pokémon. One player even decided to make a shiny version of Klawf who imagined him with a grayish shell instead of an orange one. It will be interesting to see what other internet fan art this Pokémon will be the subject of in the days leading up to the release of Pokemon scarlet and violet.
Pokemon scarlet and violet launching November 18 on Nintendo Switch.
