Nearly every generation of Pokemon brings some special and memorable memories to the collection of Pocket Monsters, as they’re known in Japan. And it is without a doubt that the same will be the case with the ninth generation of Pokemon gearing up with the release of Scarlet and Violet this fall.
But to this day, many of the original 151 Pokemon remain popular even to this day, just like the snoozing giant Pokemon, Snorlax. To pay tribute to this beloved and adored first-generation Pokemon, one fan shared some concept art for a luggage piece themed around Snorlax. The minimal design of the Pokemon-themed merchandise is so incredible that we hope it becomes an actual product.
Pokemon has proven itself to reign supreme in the world as one of the highest-grossing media franchises. It easily obliterated the competition consisting of Hello Kitty and Disney by a huge margin. Much of it is due to its excellent roster of video games as well as a faithful anime that airs to this date.
A huge chunk of money also comes from massive licensing deals with other brands that include toys, clothes, Pokemon cards, and many other pieces of merchandise based on the beloved show.
The Snorlax Suitcase
Given the absolute popularity of the franchise, there have been plenty of merchandise based on Snorlax which has been released over the years. And to be honest, the suitcase concept created by the Redditor eokoeoko could definitely pass off as official merchandise.
The mentioned concept is supposed to be a 3D rendition of a rolling suitcase that’s made to look like the giant Pokemon. The main body of the suitcase is designed to resemble his body and a small case at the top is designed to resemble its head. The headpiece comes complete with a pair of ears too.
A strap located towards the back of the head secures the small case to the main suitcase’s handle which would in theory allow users to keep their Snorlax intact during transit.
Taking everything into consideration, the Snorlax Suitcase proves itself to be a remarkable and professional 3D concept that combines the cartoony charm of the Pokemon while maintaining a clean and minimal look to the suitcase so it doesn’t stand out too much.
But that’s not all, the Snorlax suitcase is one of the many Pokemon concepts launched by eokoeoko. They’ve presented multiple renders and concepts to the Pokemon community. Some of them include Diglett earplugs that come with a Pokeball-shaped case, headsets based on a round Venonat and Voltorb, and a Gastly-themed Umbrella.
It is without a doubt that a lot of thought is put into these concepts before they’re brought out to the internet by eokoeoko. The original post boasts up to 1,900 votes on Reddit and it’s an understatement to say that eokoeoko’s Snorlax concept has been well received by the Pokemon community.
Many replies and comments under the post praised the overall design and the careful thought and consideration that went into the 3D concept of the Snorlax Suitcase. The fans stated that they loved how the two separate cases come together to portray Snorlax but other fans asked if it would become a real thing someday.
Eokoeoko responded that they would want their designs to become real products someday. Will the Snorlax Suitcase be licensed as official merchandise, or will it only stay as a 3D concept? In the meantime, fans have new merchandise to look forward to with the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
And that’s pretty much it for today on Appuals. See you next time!
