A Pokémon fan combines the designs of Charizard, a fire/flying type, and Chandelure, a ghost/fire type, into one stunning piece of fusion art.
While Charizard and Chandelure don’t seem to have much in common when it comes to design, they are talented Pokemon Fan has created a fusion artwork that successfully fuses the two Pokémon together. Pokemon Fusion Art is very popular with the gaming community due to the large number of pocket monsters that can be combined, and the number will only increase after the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet in a few months.
With so many pocket monsters passed through generations of Pokemon Games have no shortage of creature designs for talented artists to try and mix and match. But despite the multitude Pokemon Fusion Art on Reddit, this new theme combining Charizard and Chandelure has managed to stand out. Created by a Reddit user named HoundoomKaboom, the artist used pixel art for the piece, and they were able to merge some of the best parts of both Pokémon’s designs.
Even though Charizard resembles a dragon in appearance and Chandelure literally looks like a chandelier, HoundoomKaboom was still able to blend the seemingly disparate designs well. First of all, the Fusion Pokémon’s body retained Charizard’s dragon-like appearance. However, the artist cleverly changed the color palette to reflect Chandelure’s design. For example, the Fusion Pocket Monster was predominantly black in coloration, and its wings and fire were given a purple appearance to match the ghostly flames seen in Chandelure’s design. Also, the edges of the Pokémon’s wings got a more ornate look.
When combining the designs of Charizard and Chandelure, some Pokemon Fans on Reddit were reminded of this Pokemon Uprising. This fan game features Delta Pokemon, and players like MemeGodFusionK thought that Delta Charizard from this game looked similar to HoundoomKaboom’s fusion art.
It’s worth noting that this Charizard and Chandelure fan art is far from the only HoundoomKaboom merger. In fact, the Reddit user even stated on his profile page that he loves making Pokemon Fusion art, meaning more stunning artworks could follow. Some examples of fan art already created by HoundoomKaboom include one combining Spiritomb and Minior and another imagining what Onix and Glalie might look like together.
Interestingly, this HoundoomKaboom fusion art isn’t the only news related to Charizard on Reddit. Over the past few weeks, fans have made various creations using this Pokemon, including one player who made a custom Charizard Game Boy Color. Also, another fan recently showed off a Charizard they’ve had for 18 years Pokemon FireRed. It will be interesting to see where this popular Pokemon shows up next. Maybe HoundooomKaboom will decide to do even more fusion art with it in the future.
