Featured Noivern / UHaFnir / Bruyverne Fan Art:
Noivern was just revealed a few days ago, but the fan community of Pokémon is big and there are a lot of fans among us who love to draw and illustrate the Pokémon, Noivern is no exception of course!
As usual i try to show and feature some of the maybe best illustrations of it here on Game-Art-HQ in cooperation with the artists behind these works.

Sprite / Pixel Art of Noivern:
Pokemon X & Y are the first games in the main series where the Pokemon are actually using 3D Models, but sprite art is still a famous and often beautiful technique used in video games.
Some artists like to make sprite versions of 3D based characters even, like in this case these Noivern sprites by fans!
What Gamers like you and me think about Noivern the Sound Wave Pokémon:
Its a bit early to review Noivern already, but alone from his visual design already i know i like this guy. Its a mix of a Bat, a Dragon..how cool is that already? Seems like many fans and artists think that as well and so it does not wonder me that there are so many great illustrations made already (Its only 5 days since Noivern was revealed). I look forward to play this game and meet Noivern there!
Review / Opinion by the GA-HQ Admin Reinhold “GBK” Hoffmann
When I first saw Noivern, I immediately knew that it was going to be part of my team no matter what. The design just blew me away. I’m not sure if I can explain why I love it so much, but I’ll try.
I feel like the last gen had a lot of big Pokemon with a very similar proportions (Emboar, Excadrill, Conkeldurr, Seismitoad, Throh, Darmanitan, Carracosta, Beartic, Druddigon, and Heatmor) which just makes them that much more uninteresting to me. But Noivern is different, refreshing, and it helps that it’s an awesomely-designed dragon type! The closest Pokemon to it are Aerodactyl, followed by Garchomp, and Sceptile. I guess I should also mention that Aerodactyl is one of my old favorites, so the resemblance is just another reason I love it.
Now for the actual design. I feel it has a good balance of busy and plain areas. I don’t know how else to phrase it, so let’s take Garchomp as an example. In my opinion, the white spikes on the arms and legs should have been left off of its design. It already has white claws, a moderately complex head, and extra rings on its neck, legs, and tail. The head as a focal point is overshadowed by the stark contrast of white spikes scattered against the dark blue skin. By comparison, with Noivern your eyes go straight for the ears, and they stay there just long enough for the bright yellow eye to steal your gaze away. The red accents are dark enough that they don’t interfere with the focal point at all.
In the end, though, I’m picky about which dragons I like, so it’s pretty hard for me to find one that I actually like.
