A Twitter user took advantage of the latest edition of the Grammy, the biggest award in the music industry, and turned the top winners into Pokémon gym leaders .
Internet user Ray Comifuro chose the following artists for the arts: Billie Ellish, Lil Nas X, Ariana Grande and Billy Porter – probably because of the extravagant looks they chose for the ceremony.
“The Elite of the Four in the Grammy League,” joked Comifuro, mentioning the strongest group of trainers from each Pokémon continent. Check it out below:
The internet user also defined the specialization of each one of the “gym leaders”, in addition to choosing a pokémon that best suited each one: poisonous type for Billie Ellish (Muk version Alola); fairy type for Lil Nas X (Granbull); ghost type for Ariana Grande (Dusknoir) and ice type for Billy Porter (Glaceon).
Lil Nas X as Batman villain
Lil Nas X’s completely pink cowboy outfit didn’t go unnoticed by Eisner award-winning artist Erica Henderson who has worked for Marvel and Archie Comics.
In art, the artist took one of the most famous covers of Batman comics – in this case, issue # 475 of Detective Comics – and replaced the Joker with the musician.

Lil Nas X also became known for his extravagant way of dressing, as he likes to wear cowboy clothes with more colorful and modern touches in awards. The artist himself shared the drawing. Look:
The Pokémon franchise was created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1995 and the first game in the series, Pokémon Red and Blue, was released for Nintendo’s Game Boy in 1996. This universe is inhabited by creatures of the same name, which can be captured by trainers and be trained to participate in battles, among other things.
Several other games in the series have been launched since then, such as Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal; Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, FireRed and LeafGreen, Diamond, Pearl and Platinum, among others. Each title introduced a new generation of little monsters to players for taking place on different continents.
Pokémon also has a famous anime, starring Ash Ketchum and his beloved Pikachu (the most famous monster in the franchise), which has been shown since 1997 and has more than a thousand episodes. The franchise has also appeared in films, card games, manga and board games.
Pokémon is also considered the most successful and profitable media franchise in history, having grossed around $ 95 billion since its launch.
