We love Pokémon at Pocket Tactics. It’s kind of our job to love it, but still, we love it nonetheless. One thing we also love but get less of a chance to chat about is Elden Ring. Well, thanks to Instagram artist Golden Demise, now is our chance to gush about both at the same time, while also admiring their exceptional art.
It’s a noble aim, really, to imagine these cute and cuddly creatures in such a dark and grim way. The great success of Golden Demise’s Elden Ring Pokémon is that they don’t lose any of their Poké-charm, yet still feel like they’d fit in perfectly walking the Altus Peak. There are also a bunch of great references any Elden Ring fan will fawn over.
For example, there’s Mimikyu as a finger maiden crone, Stakataka as a walking mausoleum, and Golurk as a giant golem archer. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, however, as a casual scroll down their feed reveals a true love for both Elden Ring and Pokémon – as well as some gorgeous-looking art.
