First, here’s Turner’s Tatsugiri art. This is a dragon and water-type Pokemon that resembles sushi in all three of its forms. From left to right, Turner drew its Droopy, Curly, and Stretchy forms.

This was followed by Turner sharing art of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Dondozo with three Tatsugiri. There, he noted he also designed Dondozo. Dondozo is a water-type that engages in a symbiotic relationship with Tatsugiri via its Order Up move and Tatsugiri’s ability to Commander.

Turner often shares art of Pokemon characters and reveals ones he designed via social media. For example, Gholdengo fan art appeared back in December 2022. Turner also confirmed he designed Professors Sada and Turo.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available on the Nintendo Switch.
