Somebody Has Created Pokemon's Johto In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The recreation includes real Pokemon and a large portion of the game's sprites.


Animal Crossing players have applied their creativity to recreating some of their favorite video game words on their tropical islands, and the world of Pokemon is the latest to get the treatment. Japanese Twitter user @hinopika showed off an impressive recreation of Johto, the region that trainers explore in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, as well as their remakes.

The island includes an impressive amount of spritework from the original game, as well as recreations of Johto's towns and open areas for training and catching Pokemon. It also features illustrations of Poke Balls, NPCs from the games, and even a few Pokemon, like Snorlax.
