There is no denying that ATEEZ is one of the most talented and hardworking groups in the industry when it comes to K-Pop idols. Despite only debuting in 2018, the group has achieved monumental success worldwide, which has come from all the members’ hard work and dedication.
However, it seems as if it isn’t just ATEEZ who are talented, but also their fans ATINY!
One talented ATINY called Megan, who goes by the username @apolloxdesigns on Instagram, recently showed just how talented ATEEZ fans are. In a series of original artwork, she reimagined all of the ATEEZ members as Pokémon gym leaders.
Here is a look at her artwork which has reimagined the eight members of ATEEZ as Pokémon gym leaders.
1. Hongjoong – Psychic Type
Even though he is the leader of ATEEZ, Hongjoong is also the genius behind some of the group’s most loved songs and is creative in everything he does, which includes reforming his clothes. Hongjoong also ensures that he is up-to-date and educated on everything going on globally.
Because of these traits, the Psychic-type is the perfect fit for Hongjoong. Here is what Hongjoong looks like as the gym leader with the likes of Meowstic and Espeon.
2. Seonghwa – Dragon Type
Oldest member Seonghwa is known for being the perfect person to take care of his members. With his caring and kind personality, he is someone that the members admire but, on stage, he also has this powerful side, making him the perfect Dragon-type gym leader.
He could also be seen as the Dragon-type gym leader because of the constant comparisons to the character Toothless! As some of the rarest and most special of all the types, there is no denying that Seonghwa fits perfectly with Altaria, Rayquaza, Dragonair.
3. Yunho – Electric Type
In ATEEZ, Yunho hasn’t gained the nickname “Golden Retriever” for nothing. With his infectious energy and ability to make people smile, he is always there to make sure that his members are positive and are having fun with whatever they do. In K-Pop, he is definitely seen as a true “Happy Virus.”
With this in mind, the decision to categorize Yunho with the Electric-type with the likes of Pikachu and Yamper works perfectly, and he looks the perfect part as their gym leader.
4. Yeosang – Water Type
Yeosang was rightly reimagined as the gym leader of the Water-type, and it seems like the perfect fit for the idol. Water-type Pokémon are known to be the epitome of duality, being cool, calm, and collected. But they can also be powerful and energetic. It is the perfect definition of Yeosang.
Although he is one of the quietest members of ATEEZ, when he gets on stage, something changes in Yeosang, and he showcases this undeniable charisma and talent that very few can match. Here’s the proof that it is the perfect position for an all-rounder like Yeosang!
5. San – Flying Type
San is an idol of so many layers. On the surface, he looks soft and adorable with a smile that can melt the hearts of ATINYs worldwide. Yet, as soon as he steps on stage, he becomes someone whose passion and determination cannot be rivaled. What makes San unique is the way he moves on stage in such a controlled manner.
For these reasons, San matches perfectly with the Flying-type. They are known to defy nature with their ability to fly and exude elegance as they glide across the sky with ease and style.
6. Mingi – Fairy Type
Sometimes rappers with low voices are expected to be scary and intimidating, but Mingi has proved otherwise. Known as the Princess of ATEEZ and one of the cutest rappers you’ll probably ever see, he is the perfect fit as the Fairy-type gym leader. Yet, when he gets on stage, his presence is undeniable and makes him the center of attention.
With his quirky personality and ability to make even the coldest hearts melt, and he definitely fits perfectly with the cute Alcremie and Galarian Rapidash. In his pink outfit and fairy wings, he just radiates pure magic.
7. Wooyoung – Fire Type
Despite his adorable charms and charisma, Wooyoung is one of the main dancers of ATEEZ for a reason. Whenever he gets on stage, his personality changes and fans get to see a completely different side to him that is sexy, passionate, and full of desire. For this reason, making him the Fire-type gym leader is too perfect.
Fire-type Pokémon are known for commanding with their strong presence, and Wooyoung never fails to do this whenever he takes to the stage. His latest Studio Choom video showcased that, and he truly fits alongside the passionate types.
8. Jongho – Steel Type
Jongho might be the maknae of ATEEZ and sometimes exude true baby bear vibes, but don’t underestimate him because of his adorable charms. At the age of 21, Jongho is one of the strongest idols, making him the perfect fit for the gym leader specializing in steel-type Pokémon.
Steel-type Pokémon are known for their durability, strength, and power, and ATINYs know that this sums up Jongho perfectly. Jongho also has lungs of steel that make him a force to be reckoned with and the perfect leader for these Pokémon.
Each member’s personality and style shine through these choices and in the artwork, and it proves that ATINYs know the members so well. This ATINY has also shown just how passionate and gifted the fans are and how perfectly they match a group full of talented members.
