A Pokemon fan went viral when they cleverly re-created every Professor from all eight generations in The Sims 4. The player’s creative post wowed the community.

Despite making its debut in 1995, Pokemon has never been more popular. 24 years on, the beloved Nintendo franchise has incredibly made it to its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield in 2019.

To celebrate the game’s entire history, a talented player used The Sims 4 to re-create each title’s Professor in the EA title. The fan’s project truly puts into perspective how unique and varied each character is.

Reddit user ‘PrincessPinkmon’ made the creative post on May 20. The fan used Electronic Arts’ The Sims 4 character creator to bring the RPG’s iconic Professors into the social simulation title.

While the franchise has had Professors introduced into spin-offs like Pokemon GO or Masters, the player opted to use the mainline releases and re-made characters from all eight generations.

Seeing each character brought to life in a more realistic art style is incredibly interesting, while also giving Trainers an overview of the different design choices developer Game Freak went with in each release.

This isn’t the first time the creative fan has merged the two popular titles. Last month, the user also re-created Sword & Shield’s male and female protagonist in The Sims 4 as well.

Pokemon continues to be one of Nintendo’s top selling properties. In 2019, it was announced that the lovable RPG was the highest grossing media franchise of all time, pulling in billions of dollars across their games and merchandise.

Even Sword & Shield is on track to becoming the third highest selling game in the whole series, which is proof that the addictive ‘Catch ‘Em All’ mechanic still has its hooks in players.

A YouTuber revealed that he was able to afford and buy his dream car worth up to $200k just by buying, selling, and covering Pokemon cards – yes, you read that right!

Although the Pokemon TCG made its debut decades ago in 1997, the Nintendo collectibles have seen an absolute explosion in popularity in 2020. Items once traded by children on school playgrounds for practically nothing can now sell for as much as a house.

Dedicated fans that have been covering the hobby for years such as Australian YouTuber Michael ‘UnlistedLeaf’ Anderson have had their passion rewarded with the Trading Card Game’s recent attention. So much so that the content creator was able to buy a luxury car.

While many popular entertainers have been swept up by the Pokemon card craze that has hit in 2020, YouTubers like Unlisted Leaf have been making videos about the hobby since 2013. On December 4, the content creator revealed that he was able to buy his dream car – a Audi R8 V10 Plus – due his love of the Nintendo RPG.

“It is insane to me that years down the line I am able to get one,” he said. “The craziest part about this whole situation is that I really bought this car with, like, Pokemon cards. If we really boil it down.” The entertainer, who also goes by ‘Ando’, then clarified that he didn’t get any money from his parents or a side job – it was purely from covering the Pokemon collectibles.

“It is 110% all with Pokemon cards. That’s the truth. I literally have been making videos around Pokemon cards for about eight years now. I’ve been collecting Pokemon cards for eight years and like selling a few. Then like I buy a lot. Then I sell a couple more,” the Nintendo fan explained.

UnlistedLeaf revealed that Pokemon cards’ recent explosion in value and popularity also played a hand in being able to afford the luxury vehicle. “Especially with the crazy Pokemon card boom recently, I was able to purchase this car.” he revealed, before he thanked his fans for sticking with him as he covered the Nintendo hobby for eight years.

There is no telling if the craze surrounding the TCG will die down anytime soon. With the Japanese franchise gearing up to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021, the sky is the limit. Passionate fans who have dedicated their lives to Trading Card Game are finally starting to reap the rewards.
