A Pokemon Scarlet and Violet fan created Paradox forms for a few different pocket monsters. The beta designs for various creatures from Game Freak’s RPG series have been revealed over the years, and Pokemon fans have been given a lot of insight on how a number of pocket monsters advanced through the development phases of the games.
Paradox forms were introduced in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. They are special versions of pocket monsters that resemble either their prehistoric or futuristic relatives depending on the version of the game that is being played. All Paradox Pokemon are genderless, cannot breed, and are named after their physical characteristics.
A Reddit user named Sauce_Pesto posted images of Paradox forms for a few Pokemon that they created. The four pocket monsters that the user made special versions of are Ditto, Cyndaquil, Lumineon, and Silvally. Sauce_Pesto chose to base the Paradox forms on the beta concepts of the Pokemon, with Ditto and Cyndaquil receiving prehistoric makeovers and Lumineon and Silvally getting a futuristic take. The Redditor also made Shiny versions of the four pocket monsters. The Paradox forms look great and could easily pass for the real thing.
Sauce_Pesto’s Pokemon Scarlet and Violet post has gained a bit of traction, as it has hit over 1,800 upvotes. A few fans came up with their own names for the four pocket monsters that led to a few interesting ideas. Many users stated that they loved the Cyndaquil design and found the beta Ditto’s screaming mouth to be quite entertaining. It was interesting to see Sauce_Pesto create Paradox forms for the beta versions of the pocket monsters, which helps fans of the RPG series see where many of Nintendo’s creatures come from, instead of their final designs.
Many fans of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have made Paradox forms of a number of pocket monsters since the games released. Many of the fan-made creations look as if they were pulled directly from the titles because players paid a lot of attention to detail in their pieces. It is likely that gamers will see more official Paradox Pokemon when the DLC for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet releases later this year. Gamers will have to wait and see what Game Freak comes up with, but until then, they will likely continue coming up with their own designs for all fans of the RPGs to enjoy.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available now for the Nintendo Switch.
