An Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan has a TikTok series where they turn Pokemon into island villagers.

The fan-art series belongs to TikTok creator omuart (opens in new tab) who has taken the likes of Charmander, Jigglypuff, Squirtle, and more and given them the same aesthetics as all our favorite Animal Crossing: New Horizons villagers, making it look as if they fit right in with the island life. 

Omuart’s TikTok account now boasts an over nine thousand plus follower count as well as almost 110k likes on their videos. It all started with Bulbasaur and had led to their followers requesting certain Pokemon get the same Animal Crossing treatment next such as Totodile, Cyndaquill, and Chikorita.

If this wasn’t great enough, the TikTok creator also sells their designs (opens in new tab) in the form of stickers, pins, and apparel on their Etsy store. They also take commissions through the store so if you’re dying to see your favorite Pokemon in Animal Crossing: New Horizons form, this is the person to ask. 

This isn’t the first instance we’ve seen of an Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan’s content blowing up on the video-sharing app as we previously chatted with Cirtuspair about their mesmerizing Animal Crossing: New Horizons personalized joy-cons, which were so popular the TikTok creators were able to start their own business customizing other fans’ Joy-cons in similar ways.

In case you missed it, there was recently a Pokemon Presents showcase which gave us the latest updates on upcoming Pokemon games such as Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Not only this but Nintendo also showed off a brand new Nintendo Switch Lite console that comes decorated with a metallic gold and silver color palette and Dialga and Palkia designs on the back. 

Can’t get enough of the adorable fan-art? Take a look at these amazing Animal Crossing: New Horizons realistic villager portraits.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
