An artist creates stunning artwork that reimagines what Spheal, an Ice/Water-type Pokémon, would look like as an ice cream flavor.
The world of Pokemon is filled with many unusual pocket monsters, often featuring unique designs. Sometimes the appearance of these Pokémon is inspired by real objects and wild animals. Some examples are the ones to come Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Starter Quaxly, which looks like a duck, and Magnemite, which resembles a magnet. In addition, Spheal is another Pokemon whose design is based on a real animal.
As the name suggests, Spheal resembles a seal. It has a round shape with short fins on the sides of its body. While the Pokemon might resemble a seal, that didn’t stop a player from comparing it to another real-world object; one that is less obvious but far more appetizing.
Recently, a gamer known as Ariamisu on Reddit decided to mix Pokémon and ice cream in an artwork they created, and they chose to feature Spheal from the Pokemon series in the picture. While many players have created artwork featuring this chubby, seal-like creature, few likely have created an image that transforms the pocket monster into various types of ice cream. However, that’s exactly what this Reddit user did.
In the picture, Ariamisu presents six different Spheal, each with a unique flavor. Adding to the appeal of the image was the fact that the Pokemon was conveniently shaped like a scoop of ice cream. Impressively, the artist managed to include restyling for each spheal corresponding to Neapolitan, Pistachio, Cookies n Cream, Raspberry Sorbet, Coffee and even Onion. That Pokemon Fan gave each ice cream flavor a different selection of colors to sell the look of each. For example, the Cookies n Cream Spheal had a black underside with a mostly white top, similar to the flavor it represented.
Since they posted this artwork on Reddit, many have Pokemon Not surprisingly, fans were quick to suggest other flavors for the artist to try and have Spheal represent. With over 2,900 upvotes in just one day, there were many possible ice cream flavors to try. “Must. Have. Pumpkin Spice Spheal!” I-am-a-me said on Reddit. Additionally, some other suggested flavors included salted caramel, cotton candy, and mint chocolate. On top of that, Ariamisu even revealed that her favorite flavor was coffee.
While this appetizing spheal art will no doubt be remembered by many fans, it’s just one of many pieces Pokemon fan art online. In fact, there’s no shortage of creations starring Spheal. For example, one player recently created an adorable spheal animation in Blender, showing the pocket monster spinning around in a small body of water. Time will tell what other fan art featuring the Pokémon will be shared with the community in the coming days.
