A commission by *pooketz for his new group :iconpoke-pixel:

He basically gave me free reign to do what I want outside of making the trainer the same size as my Green pixel art.
Doing this piece resurrected huge waves of nostalgia for me,
even if I did feel like throwing my monitor outside at times.
4 colors used, original Game Boy fat palette

It's Red and Pikachu sitting on a cliff overlooking Kanto.
He's pointing towards Indigo Plateau (Elite Four).

I made this image really personal for me, as Pokemon Blue will remain one of my favorite games ever.
It holds so many fonds memories; events in game, playing and trading with my friends irl,
and the whole poke craze that hit the US when i was so young.

EDIT: Thanks for the DD! Thank you ^Lyricanna for the feature!

This is really good. If Pokemon had cutscenes, I imagine it'd be something like this.
