Last week I asked you amazing artists to take the newly revealed Pokemon Gen 8 starters and share them with other games, movies, TV shows and more. The world needs more cute creatures and you folks delivered!

Our winning image this week was created by Mrichston who gives The Judge from the Phoenix Wright series a violent encounter with our lovable starters.

Mrichston actually won a few weeks ago in the Terry Crews ‘shop contest. A little peek behind the curtain of how I judge this contest. I download my favorite images and don’t include creator info. Then I flip through them and decide which one is the winner. After picking this one I looked up the name and it sounded familiar. I do feel bad picking someone twice, but I also really loved everything about this image.

This was honestly the hardest contest to judge yet and I spent 10 minutes flipping back and forth between three images before making my decision. You can check out the original post to see all the entries, but here are some of my favorites.

Let’s hand out some awards!

I guess I won again. But I guess choosing without knowing who made image is fairest method to choose winners.
