This 'Dragon Ball' x 'Pokemon' Mash-Up Imagines Grookey Going SSJ4

Ever since Nintendo announced the next generation of the Pokemon video games, fans have been obsessed with the newly revealed starters Grookey, Sobble, and Scorbunny. Fans have been trying to figure out just how these mysterious new starters would evolve ever since.

Dragon Ball fans have been running wild with the thought of Grookey eventually becoming a Dragon Ball character. But one artist shared what Grookey would look like if it eventually went Super Saiyan 4.

Artist @FunsexyDB shared their hilarious take on the newest Grass starter's Grookey's evolutionary chain, and it should be immediately familiar to Dragon Ball GT fans. After moving beyond its cute original form, the second form sees a Grookey turning a tiny Super Saiyan 3 much like Kid Goku did during Dragon Ball GT, and its final evolutionary stage goes even further beyond and sees Grookey go full Super Saiyan 4.

Fans immediately dubbed the hilarious Goku and Grookey mash-up as "Grooku," and now they won't accept any other evolutionary chain. Whenever the official designs for the new Pokemon are officially revealed, there will be a subset of fans with broken hearts when Grookey doesn't have a Dragon Ball influenced evolution. There's two routes they can take with it too as another group of fans imagined Grookey turning into Cell.

Dragon Ball Super currently airs its English dub on Adult Swim during the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 11:00 p.m. It is also available to stream on Funimation and Amazon Video. The Japanese language release of the series is complete, and available to stream on FunimationNOW and Crunchyroll. The manga has chapters that can currently be read for free thanks to Viz Media.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are set to launch on Nintendo Switch later this year.
