A fan art shows a redesign of Giyu from Demon Slayer as a Pokémon trainer

Kimetsu No Yaiba, better known as Demon Slayer, will have made his way into the world of anime, as one of the most popular currently, so often his large number of fans around the world, perform some tributes in which we can see his beloved characters involved in crossovers with some others from the anime industry.

Something that seems quite curious to us is that, this time a fan has been highly motivated and has decided to mix one of the Demon Slayer characters, with a theme inspired by the design of Pokémon, so he has revealed the appearance to us that Giyu would have, if he were a Pokémon trainer.

We must mention that, Pokémon is one of the most enduring anime in the history of Japanese animated series. In addition, it is one of the most consolidated video game franchises today, with numerous playable titles, without forgetting its large amount of merchandising.

Nintendo knew how to exploit this diamond in the rough and now fans continue to fuel the Pokémon fever by making amazing crossovers. This franchise never goes out of style, that’s why a user on Reddit wanted to combine two of his favorite anime: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Pokémon.

In this illustration we see Giyu, the first demon slayer our protagonist Tanjiro met in the forest near his house. He was the first character to actually help Tanjiro with his sister, putting a bamboo muzzle on her so she couldn’t bite anyone.

The fact that the Reddit user has illustrated this character as a water pokemon trainer is noteworthy. Well, he is one of the most powerful Slayers in the entire guild, he is one of the Pillars specialized in water techniques, like our protagonist.

Next to him we see a kind of water type pokemon, Gyarados. Also, the proportion of the image in terms of lines and colors is spectacular. The user who made this fanart was able to capture the essence of what it means to be a true pokemon trainer.
