Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players want Mega Man themed shinies for Armarouge & Ceruledge

A fan made an incredible concept for glossy designs based on Mega Man for Armarouge and Ceruledge in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet recently got its fourth trailer detailing the game’s story and brand new Pokemon.

Two of those brand new Pokemon are the Fire/Psychic-type Armarouge and Fire/Ghost-type Ceruledge, exclusive to Scarlet and Violet versions respectively.

Now a fan drew parallels to their designs and Capcom’s iconic Mega Man characters, creating some amazing shiny concept color schemes.

Pokemon fan makes Mega Man shiny concept

The glossy concepts come from artist and content creator Lewtwo, who provided mockups of the glossy shapes on . placed Twitter.

Armarouge’s glossy concept shows the naturally yellow and red Pokemon with a cool blue, black, and gray color scheme, sporting green eyes, and a flaming red ponytail.

As for Ceruledge, it swaps its dark purple and lavender color scheme for a sleek red design, with metallic silver accents, blue eyes, and a gold flaming ponytail.

Armarouge’s glossy mock-up is based on Mega Man, probably more influenced by his Mega Man X design. Ceruledge’s shiny concept, on the other hand, is based on Zero from Mega Man X.

Lewtwo said in an earlier post that they thought Armarouge and Ceruledge were almost certainly “designed by Hitoshi Ariga” and called the designs the “most Mega Man sh*t” they’d ever seen.

For fans who may not know, Hitoshi Ariga has been known for his artwork centered around the Mega Man, or Rockman series as it is known in Japan, since the late 90s.

However, Satoshi Tajiri, the original illustrator for the Pokemon series, invited Ariga to work on Pokemon X & Y and has since helped design many aspects of the series, from Pokemon designs to Trading Cards.

Some of Ariga’s Pokemon designs include the Alolan Geodude line, the Alolan Grimer line, the fossil Pokemon of Sword and Shield, and the Rookidee line.

While it’s unclear whether Ariga officially designed both Armarouge and Ceruledge or not, it’s hard to deny that Lewtwo’s glossy concept wouldn’t make an extremely cool reference for fans in the know.
