A Minecraft fan imagines monsters as Pokemon

In recent fan art, an artist brought together the worlds of Minecraft and Pokemon by assigning types to a variety of mobs. The world of Minecraft features plenty of creatures and animals for players to interact with and these vary from passive squid to downright hostile zombies. When it comes to categorizing creatures, Pokemon The universe has a handful of different types that dictate their strengths and weaknesses.

Although not categorized by types, the mobs of Minecraft usually stick to particular environments and are known for particular behaviors. This is especially true for zombies that have variants like Husks (found in the desert) and Drowned (found underwater).

This fan art shows an Enderman, Allay, Warden, Glow Squid, Blaze, Phantom, Axolotl, Zombie, Husk, and Drowned with their assigned Pokemon types just below. U/3tigrestrists marks four of these monsters as unique types: Endermen are psychic, Allays are fairies, flames are fire, and zombies are classed as normal. Apart from these, the artist also marks the other six Minecraft mobs as dual-type Pokémon. The terrifying Warden combines Dark and Rock, Glow Squids combines Water and Electric, and Phantoms features Ghost and Flying. Other than that, the Axolotl mixes Water and Fairy, Husks mixes Normal and Ground, and Drowned has Normal and Water.

The crowds shown here are among the most recognizable in Minecraft and the artist has done well to match them with reasonable types Pokemon. Their strategy here seems similar to what happens in the Pokemon franchise in that the outward appearance and demeanor dictate the strike they have. For example, the Ghost is a flying, undead hostile mob with a blue and white coloring and u/3tigrestristes converts it to a dual type of Ghost and Flying.

There are many different games that players can give this typing treatment with, but Minecraft works particularly well. The mobs in this game are memorable and can be found in a variety of different environments, just like traditional Pokemon. The typically aggressive keeper of Minecraft is a perfect example because, like Tyranitar (the Pokemon it would share a dual type with), it can easily strike fear into players.

Again, none of these new Pokémon feature a Steel type, which is usually one of the strongest. This leaves this group a bit vulnerable to some stronger Pokemon in the original species list. Either way, this fan art does a great job of converting some of the most famous crowds of Minecraft in Pokemon.

Minecraft is available on Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
