Fan Builds Incredible Pokemon Center In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

We’re inching closer to Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ one year anniversary, but the amazing player creations don’t seem to be slowing down. One New Horizons player managed to build in incredible Pokemon Center replica – complete with Nurse Joy and Chansey.

There’s no doubt the recreation is spot-on, but its far from the only Pokemon design the player has pieced together. In fact, they have an entire Instagram account dedicated to their Animal Crossing-Pokemon crossovers. One image shows off their hand drawn designs for Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Eevee, Squirtle, and Charmander, while another actually shows off a Pokemon battle.

As cool as the recreated Pokemon Center is, I’m actually more impressed with the outfits put together by the artist. Nurse Joy, Ash, and even a PokeStop employee are all perfectly replicated. These all seem to be part of a much larger PokeLand project, and we’re excited to see what the player cooks up next.

Building iconic locations from other franchises in Animal Crossing is nothing new. In fact, this isn’t even the first time the Pokemon Center was lovingly rebuilt in New Horizons. A quick search across the web turns up dozens of unique takes on the location, although it looks like the recent one might be the most faithful.

Beyond Pokemon, Animal Crossing has seen crossovers with Harry Potter, The Legend of Zelda, and even Mario Party. It seems like the designs keep getting more elaborate as time marches on, since players are becoming more comfortable with the game’s various creative elements and how to best use them.

Animal Crossing recently celebrated the New Year with a Countdown event on December 31, followed by the arrival of exclusive items that will be available until January 15. All of them are pretty cheap, too, each of them available for less than 5,000 bells. With any luck, they’ll be included in future crossover creations.

PokeLand is bound to see more additions in the coming weeks, so be sure to check out its official Instagram page for frequent updates. A Dream Code will also be sent out once the project is complete.
