Pokémon Go is the summer’s biggest craze, so it was only a matter of time before gay fans began to merge the LGBT community and Pokémon together:
Now the RuPaul’s Drag Race fandom has jumped on the bandwagon and reimagined their favorite queens in the Pokémon world. First artist MAGAM has drawn the show’s queens as a new breed of Pokémon based on some of their most iconic looks:
#011 Liasoone As requested by @maikolrosero here's a Pokemon based in @pearliaison bearded couture for @rupaulsdragrace ,I like this one, looks cool and stoned. I'm working in some of your requests, but I still can receive more. #fanart #dragrace #pokemon #nintendo #digitalart #illustration #drag #pearl #dragqueen
#009 Rolodex (yeah, I know) Today's Pokemon from @rupaulsdragrace is @thebiancadelrio season 7 finale AMAZING look, after all it was almost a Pokemon itself since the beginning. I'm still getting requests #pokemon #nintendo #steel #fanart #dragrace #digitalart #illustration #metal #drag #dragqueen #rupaul
World of Wonder’s Jake Thompson even paired the Drag Race queens with their Pokémon spirit animal, and the results are pretty on point:
They’re even reimagining the queens as Trainers!
Now how do we petition to get “Death Drop” added as an attack in Pokémon Sun and Moon?
