I like how cute and simplified Lyra is next to that Feraligatr and background

I am loving this image because it sparks that feeling of expanse and mystery that I mentioned. A lot of the art from the pokemon trading cards also gives me that feeling. Perhaps it has something to do with the environments in these images being sort of murky, foggy, and largely left to the imagination. The Pokemon seem animalistic and instinctual and the trainers look so small and vulnerable. It’s the feeling of being unafraid to explore these dangerous places and command these dangerous creatures. Pokémon is such a great escapist fantasy.
