In celebration of Pokemon Red and Green's 17th Anniversary, I have decided to draw this adoRyble artwork featuring Red and Green playing their own game on the classic grey Gameboy (I still have mine :'D ), I kinda wanted to show the two rival's friendship before they went on the Pokemon journey, before they got their first Pokemon. Anyways enjoy this artwork. Ry loves you all.

ALSO IF YOU ARE GONNA 9GAG THIS OR SHARE THIS ANYWHERE ELSE, PLEASE CREDIT THE ARTIST. PUT A LINK TO MY DA OR FB OR TUMBLR OR WHATEVER OK? Thanks!

Wow! Your artwork looks really cool! :) (Smile) This happens to be my favorite. I like the way you draw things in Kawaii/chibi style. How did you become so good at drawing Kawaii? I mean, it must be super easy to draw Kawaii form. Love Would you like to check out my own Kawaii styled art? tigerstar2000.deviantart.com/g…
I'm still developing on how I like to draw Anime/Manga characters in my own Kawaii-style. Sweating a little... 

You seem to be a fan of Pokemon and other characters from the Nintendo games. I took a look at most of your pictures in your gallery and they're looking real nice too! By any chance I hope you continue to draw things in chibi form. :D (Big Grin) I also like to see other Anime characters from different popular shows you can draw because your artwork and style are more beautiful everytime you create something even in digital art. Keep up the good work and always keep drawing and being creative! Don't you dare give up on what you love!! Hug

Oh man, I love this. I really love your not quite eight bit/chibi style. The details like the pokédolls, vhs, floppy, and NES were great additions.

Wasn't the rival called Blue and not Green? at least my first Game Boy pokemon games were red and blue, with the yellow as extra... had no green :(

In Japan, there's a Pokémon spin-off anime called "Pocket Monster: Origins" which follows the story of the regular Pokémon trainer "Red" and in the anime the rival's name is "Green". "Blue" in the anime is the female player character you can play as in the Gameboy Advance versions of Red and Green.

Basically, the names here goes by the anime adaption of the Gameboy Advance versions of Red and Green. =)
