Fans wake up to Dream World artwork
New artwork for selected Pokémon available in the new Pokémon Dream World has been revealed. The art release accompanies new artwork by Ken Sugimori that was first seen in the latest edition of CoroCoro magazine to leak onto the internet last week.
Most of the Pokémon available in the Dream World have had artwork published on the Dream World website. This group includes franchise mascot, Pikachu, and Bulbanews's mascot, Bulbasaur. Black and White mascots Reshiram and Zekrom also have Dream World art. It is expected that all Pokémon will have Dream World art, even if they cannot be obtained in this method. Some of the art has been used before on other websites and promotions, but some of it has never been seen before.
From the art we've seen so far, there is a stark contrast between the Dream World art and Sugimori art that has been released with Pokémon games over recent years. The Dream World art uses brighter, bolder colors and thicker lines, with a different feel to Sugimori's now familiar style. Some Pokémon are colored differently than usual: Ivysaur traditionally has red eyes, but its new Dream World art shows it with purple eyes.
The Pokémon Dream World is a new feature for Pokémon Black and White Versions. It allows Trainers to expand their Pokémon collection via the internet: often with species not native to Isshu. Often these Pokémon have unique abilities to their non-Dream World counterparts.
