The Grammy awards red carpet is known for its daring fashion choices, and this year some of those signature looks have been immortalized–as Pokemon fanart. Some fans noticed that the wild styles and bright colors looked a lot like the fancy duds worn by Pokemon trainers in the games and anime series.
The trend started when Twitter user Gatelygate matched four music stars with their red carpet styles–Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, Ariana Grande, and Billy Porter–to Pokemon types. The comparison took off, and then user Refrainbow took it a step further with fanart of each musician drawn in the Pokemon style, and matched with a coordinating monster. They were dubbed the “Grammy League Elite Four.” You can see the fabulous results below:

The four command a lot of star power, as three were nominated for awards at the 2020 Grammys. Eilish won multiple awards and set a record in the process for the youngest artist in Grammy history to win Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year.
In the world of actual Pokemon, Nintendo recently announced details for the Pokemon Home, the cloud-based online service for storing and managing your monsters. The feature sets are slightly different for the Switch and mobile applications, but altogether the tools seem fairly robust. Meanwhile, Pokemon Sword and Shield will receive two large expansions this year, the first one coming in June.
