What a time to be alive. Not only is Game of Thrones heading into its eighth and final season — but early Wednesday morning, the eighth generation games of the Pokemon franchise, Sword and Shield were announced for the Nintendo Switch.
Which begs the question: What sort of Pokemon would the denizens of the Seven Kingdoms have used? Artist Kaleb Raleigh gives us the answer to who Jon Snow, The Night King, Daenerys Targaryen, Jaime Lannister and more would have chosen for Pokemon battling in his “A Song of Red and Blue” art series:
“It’s said that direwolves once roamed the north in great packs of a hundred or more, and feared neither man nor mammoth, but that was long ago and in another land.”
” I will take what is mine with fire and blood.”
“Dywen says the wildlings call us crows,” he said uncertainly. “The crow is the raven’s poor cousin. They are both beggars in black, hated and misunderstood.”
“A lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinions of sheep.”
“Ours is the fury.”
The white roses drew back, as men always did at the sight of Victarion Greyjoy armed and armored, his face hidden behind his kraken helm. They were clutching swords and spears and axes, but nine of every ten wore no armor, and the tenth had only a shirt of sewn scales. These are no ironmen, Victarion thought. They still fear drowning.
“Get him!” one man shouted. “He’s alone!”
“COME!” he roared back. “Come kill me, if you can.”
“In my family we say: A naked man has few secrets; a flayed man, none.”
“Oberyn was ever the viper. Deadly, dangerous, unpredictable. No man dared tread on him.”
White Walkers/The Others
“The cold gods. The ones in the night. The white shadows.”
