There comes a time in every fan’s life where they must make a choice; Water, Fire, or Grass? In the world of Pokemon, aspiring trainers must decide which starter creature they will embark on their journey with, but some wish they could bend those rules a bit.
Take, for instance, an artist known as ABZ Art. Their love of Charizard and Grass-type Pokemon led them to make a new pocket monster that fans are falling in love with.
As you can see below, the artist posted their sleek Charizard makeover to Reddit. ABZ Art wanted to see what a Grass-type Charizard would look like, and they didn’t spare any expense.
Colored a mossy green, Charizard dons blue stripes in this artwork and is seen flying with some wood-braced wings. The scaly dragon looks muscular thanks to its wood grain belly, and its tail is further wrapped in branches as a sort of brace. Finally, this Pokemon trades in its usual fire-tipped tail for for a leaf, and fans have already started throwing potential names into the ring for this guy.
So, it’s time for you to choose! Which of these names suit the Grass-type the best: Chlorizard, Chiazard, or Florazard?
Of course, there is no such thing as a Grass-type Charizard in the Pokemon Universe, but fans can imagine what such a creature would look like. Thanks to Pokemon Sun & Moon, the Alola region revealed some type-bending for classic Pokemon such as Vulpix. So, there's hope the franchise will give this usual Fire-type evolution a makeover some day, and this art proves Grass-type is a natural fit for the temperamental dragon.
