Trainers, have you ever wondered how your favorite Pokémon stack up against each other size-wise? Well, you’re in for a treat. Digital artist and Pokémon Trainer PSaber97 has created size comparison drawings that have us all saying, “Why didn’t we think of this before?” Trust us, these are a must-see.
PSaber97 mainly focuses on Pokémon-themed art, and their recent work is a testament to their talent. You can spend hours marveling at their creations, especially the size comparison drawings they recently shared on Twitter and Instagram. The artwork includes comparisons between XS Charizard, XL Noctowl, XXL Bellossom, XXS Salamence, XXL Charmander, and XXS Tyranitar.
Pokémon GO was the pioneer in introducing size variance in the Pokémon universe. When you catch a Pokémon, it comes with a unique weight and height. Sizes range from XS to XL, providing an additional layer of excitement to the gameplay.
When transferred to mainline games via Pokémon HOME, these sizes translate into actual values. For instance, XXL Pokémon get a size value of 255, while XXS ones get a value of 0. These size variances are reflected in newer games like Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
Not just a cosmetic detail, size variance adds a new layer to your Pokémon encounters. When you capture at least three of any one species, your Pokédex starts showcasing your records for size and weight, complete with celebratory messages for new records.
