An avid fan of Pokemon shared an image online of an ashtray they created showing a poolside scene between two Psyducks. Though it’s not a direct adaptation of anything featured in it Pokemonit’s a fun fan interpretation that perfectly captures the essence of Psyduck.

That’s why there are amazing tributes like this ashtray, as children you grew up with Pokemon develop their own tributes as they age.

It features a psyduck swimming in a small pool as well as a shiny psyduck sitting in a panic and watching from the sidelines. It is made of resin with every detail hand painted onto the design. There are also small poke balls placed around the pool giving it that extra bit of detail. It’s clear it came from someone who understands and is in awe of him Pokemon Franchise.
