Pokemon Go artist Jason Merino explained the promising 2021 screen

If there is one thing and one thing is just that Pokemon Go Fans may agree, this is: the loading screen art is incredible. These screens started beautifully and have gotten better and better over the years, with artwork featuring Pokemon and Everyman / Everywoman trainers in a variety of settings to help set the tone for Nintendo events, holidays and the entire season. Yesterday, as the clock reached 12 o’clock and brought in the new year, the loading screen was updated with a new image that looks more like a way to set the tone for 2021. Instead, with an image that comes up in the very first episode Pokemon Anime, it seemed like the image signaled an optimistic new beginning … something that I believe most of us would agree on. Now, Pokemon Go Artist Jason MerinoThe creator responsible for this screen has explained the thought process in this striking, inspiring image.

Jason Merino took responsibility for many of these favorite loading screens Her twitter To illustrate this image Pokemon Go Trainers:

This new year @ PokemonGo app loading is the screen I had to do … let me explain.

Painting a loading screen is not an excuse to create a beautiful image or to accept my inner blur. Instead it is an outlet, to keep the moment of a loading bar with you. The moment to bring something positive and hopefully memorable.

For this year, it was a moment of hope.

From the rising phoenix to the passing storm. The light at the end of the tunnel and the beginning of a new journey (full Pokemon AP1). 2020 has been a year we want to forget. It’s a lot of “OMG!” Have brought. Moments and took us to some really low places.

A person who is going through a lot of myself, I can say with confidence, with a bucket of positive energy, rigidity and aura, there is no dark obstacle / obstacle that we cannot overcome!

So I’m hopeful, there will be light at the end of this storm and hope this loading screen reminds you of that too. To everyone around the world, keep it upside down and Happy New Year!

That’s a message I believe we can all feel deeply deeply.

Merino refers to the first part of the episode series, where Ash struggles to get the injured Pikachu into the city so he can be taken to the Pokemon Center. Slowing down as the hurricane approaches, they are chased by swarms of aggressive spiers. As Spyro is going to get Ash, who is trying to make himself his target to save Pikachu, Pikachu sees Ash’s heroism and gains the strength to shock the spear. After this, Ash and Pikachu both go out and wake up for a new day, when they see Ho-Oh, a completely unknown Pokemon, flying towards the rainbow, shining and golden, signifying a new day.

Happy New Year, fellow trainers.
