Moar old stuff x3 This time, something a little different! Well, for me. I'm pretty sure this concept has been done countless times. However, in this one, I decided not to make "new" and "original" clothes for each character. I just went by region. Some clothes might have fit some more than others (like I think Twilight fits the DP outfit more). I did them specifically like this after discovering that the Pokémon I think they'd have, could be on each different region (I was going by their pets). Not sure if that makes sense but I think you'll get it once I list them :)

She is from Kanto and has a Growlithe

Twilight Sparkle
She is from Johto and has a Noctowl

Rainbow Dash
She is from Hoenn and has a Torkoal

She is from Sinnoh and has a Glameow

Pinkie Pie
She is from Unova and has a Sandile

She is from Kalos and has a Bunnelby

Does it make sense now? Hahaha. So yeah, they were really fun to design. It was difficult however to adapt the trainer clothes to fit the Mane 6's colors and personalities. Rainbow especially. For her I just stuck with blue rather than her Equestria Girls colors and I gave her male trainer pants XD I refuse to put her in a skirt! Doing this in Ken Sugimori's style was also fun and hard. There's a certain stiffness to it that's hard to explain but if you get it, it looks legit in the end. Also the colors!!! You have to lower the saturation like crazy haha. 

Hope you like! Might end up doing seperate pictures for them with the Pokémon and a short bio. Who knows XP

Pokemon Trainer Applejack: You know, I've been thinking...

Pokemon Trainer Rainbow Dash: About what?

Pokemon Trainer Applejack: What if there's another universe out there? One where Sunset Shimmer isn't our rival, but our friend? A universe with no Pokemon?

Pokemon Trainer Rainbow Dash: I wouldn't know about that...but I do know we got a long road ahead of us before we become Pokemon Masters, so we need less philosophy and more medals!

Not bad for other, ahahaha Pinkie!

Very neat I love the designs (I also love how they fit with their animal friends, I didn't really catch that at first with Twilight, but then I remembered she had an owl and spike was more of a friend rather then a pet.)

A friend of mine sent this picture's link to me 8 months ago and I had a tab in my browser with it since that time. Today I finally decided to find who was the artist behind it to fav the picture.
Good job.

Pinkie Pie as Hilda. My favourite pony. My favourite player in my favourite game.

This... is actually kind of awesome. You've really done a stellar job of mimicking Sugimori's style to the point that I thought these guys were official characters I hadn't seen when I first looked at them. The subtlety you incorporated each of the characters' specific features into each design is really well done to make them not glaringly elaborate-looking. You've drawn them to look as if they could be actual trainers and I'm really liking it.

Love Pinkie's cotton-candy locks. Though I like Fluttershy the best, her design's really cute and catches the shrinking violet thing she's got going on well. 
olidoky Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2015
Wow! Your art is really cool!
Riverfox237 Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Rainbow Dash is my favorite. Bless you for giving the action-oriented, super-energetic girl PANTS
MCsaurus Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2015

Awesome Pokémon Trainer versions of My Little Pony, I think I like it.
StrandedGeek Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2015
I see Twilight Sparkle as the previous Champion fight, like Red in the (Heart)Gold & (Soul) Silver. Rarity is totally a coordinator for contests. Fluttershy? either a Nurse Joy or running the daycare.

I love this!
YokoLobochan24 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
These are like, so adorably awesome! I actually really enjoy how the characters still manage to speak out with the outfits! If by chance I ever wanted to do this as a cosplay with friends, would you mind as long as credit is given to you for the original idea?
Aeur Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think a rapidash would fit Rainbow nicely :)
Kaylu83 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Can you do it with next gen cause that would be awesome!
SuperCelestia Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2015
Applejack has a Hoenn feel. Not that I don't mind, but I guess it pales in comparison to Rarity. I mean, she's so pale!
kevinvdvelden Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
i think because she is so simple she looks like someone form the very first games
TheAnimeChannelxX Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2014  Student Digital Artist

sylveonfan1 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2014
I want to be rarity on the game. She is so adorable!
temus Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
when you will do candece and shining armor? i think that cadence could have a gardevoir or a luvdisc and shining a lucario
TheAntTony Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014  Student General Artist
This is adorable, and I'm not even a brony. 
CometStarfall Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014
If you don't mind me asking, what program and platform (I don't know any other way to phrase that) did you use to create these?
gameboyred Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer

hi, just wondering if you are accepting requests for pokemon trainers. i would really love one
They're amazing! Awesome job!
martieek Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I did something super similar to this, only it's My Little Sailors!  I really love your concepts though, Pokemon and MLP is a wonderful combination. Here's mine if you want to take a quick glance at it >w>;; My Little Sailors: Champions of Friendship by martieek
Nice work! I love how you modeled the Mane Six as the player characters from each generation and matched their pets with a Pokemon from their appropriate region. Though I wonder, would Spike be trainer or a Pokemon? If he was a trainer, I'd say he should be modeled after Lance the Dragon Master. If he was a Pokemon...hmm... Charmander or maybe Bagon. Perhaps Charmander. He would eventually grow wings and even become a Dragon type (Mega Charizard X).

They all fit the bill so perfectly! RD is the best though. Why? She digs the May costume!

drawingshady Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

flameherostar Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
