One Piece It has become one of the most loved franchises by the public. Through more than a thousand episodes, this is how we have learned the story of the young Monkey D. Luffy, who heard the story of Gol D. Roger and aspires to become a pirate king. So, it was inevitable that his community would make him fan arts with Pokémon, which is one of the most recognized franchises (more than Mickey Mouse).
AruSan77186 posted on Reddit, a fanart showing the mugiwara, the crew of The Straw Hat Pirates, as Pokémon, this illustration started as Luffy as Chimchar and now we have Sanji, Nami, Usopp and more in this collection. Which pirate do you think is missing in this fan art? Surely we would have loved to see Okiku as Sylveon or maybe as Gardevoir.
Certainly, seeing Sanji as Torchic using his big fire attacks is a very adorable thing. Maybe, as they say in the comments on the post on Reddit, seeing Nami as Castform was a good option (because of her affinity for special abilities), but the design she used looks like it’s just two balloons floating with faces (or maybe, another thing).
