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

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!
