Hence, it should come as no surprise that many hardcore Pokemon fanatics keep sharing their passion for this character on different occasions. A similar incident took place recently on Reddit.

A Pokemon fan has created a stunning Pikachu portrait from trading cards

A user named pennyroyal, on Reddit, shared an interesting post on the social platform. While revealing an image of their art, they wrote that it was a Pikachu portrait solely made out of trading cards. Simply put, the fan art is created from the cards of the famous Pokemon Trading Card game.

This fan art is similar to Pikachu’s sprite form from the retro Pokemon games. Yes, there have been other Pikachu tributes as well in the past, but this one’s quite different. Using the trading cards to build such an amazing portrait is quite unique in itself. Not to mention that the user has shown full dedication to their work, which is very clearly visible. That’s because the portrait is made up of over 200 trading cards.
