A fanart page on the Pokémon Fanart Gallery (PMG) website has been shared more than 6 million times since it was created in October.
It has been used to illustrate scenes from various Pokémon films, including the latest Pokémon movie, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and various promotional artwork for games like Pokémon Go.
“The page was created with a clear purpose: to share the fun of Pokémon,” PMG’s founder, Kami Rijal, told Business Insider.
“If you have a passion for Pokémon, you’ll find a lot of fun on the PMG.”
PMG is one of many Pokémon fan sites that are thriving on the Internet thanks to Pokémon Go, which launched in July.
“It’s fun to see what other people think about Pokémon and Pokémon games, and that’s what’s really important to us,” Rijalson said.
Pokémon Go has inspired a lot more Pokémon fan art, including a Pokemon mural of a character called Pikachu in San Francisco’s Chinatown.
In January, a Pokémon mural of an avatar of Pokémon in Tokyo inspired a fan art piece.
The Pokémon Fan Art Gallery has over 6 million fans across various social media platforms.
Rijasons goal was to have an online gallery of Pokémon fanart that people would be able to find quickly.
Ridda, who runs the Pokemon Fan Art gallery on Facebook, is currently in his second year of being an employee at the company.
The site has been updated several times since its creation in October, Rijsas goal being to expand to the Pokémon fan community.
“My goal is to become the official Pokémon fan site of the Pokémon company,” Riddas Facebook page says.
The first time the page was launched, it featured a photo of an image of a Pikachu avatar of a woman.
“I made a series of images for the site.
I had to draw a bunch of characters in a couple hours and put them in the gallery,” Rifl, the site’s creator, told BI.
“This was a pretty cool experience.”
Rij has created several Pokémon fan page designs since then, including one that shows Pikachu and Pikachu’s shadow and another with Pikachu in his Poké Ball, a Poké Ball that he drew.
“Pokémon is so fun, and people have a lot to say about it,” Riwal told BI in a phone interview.
“For me, that’s when I was drawn to Pokémon.”
Riddah, the artist behind the Pikachu fan art page, said he wanted to create something for fans of the popular video game series Pokémon that they could share.
“In the end, I wanted to do something that could be shared, and if the Pokemon fans could see it, they could say, ‘Thank you, I appreciate it,'” Rij says.
He also hopes the Pokémon fans would enjoy seeing more fanart of Pikachu.
“That’s the biggest part of my job is to get people to share it, and I want to make that happen,” he said.
“And hopefully the Pokémon players will enjoy seeing it as well.”
Pokémon Go’s popularity is also driving more Pokémon fans to other sites like the Pokémon subreddit.
Rifal said the subreddit’s main focus is on the game, and the Pokémon section of the subreddit has more than 4,000 registered users.
Riwah, who is also an artist in his own right, is trying to get more people involved with Pokémon.
“When I started out, there was just me and a couple of friends, and now there are probably over 300,000 people,” Rivala, the Pokemon fan, told me.
“But we’re just looking for new people to join our team.
