Dr. Lava notes that Godzillante was created by Pokémon franchise artwork director Ken Sugimori, and was “in all probability simply created for instance the sport’s mechanics – to not develop into an precise Pokémon”. It was first revealed in a Sport Freak e book which showcased the origins of the franchise, and was truly seen in a chunk of artwork alongside one other unreleased Pokémon known as Gorillaimo. You may see this beneath.
Similarities will be made between Godzillante and Tyranitar – a second-generation Pokémon – and in addition the design used when a Pokémon makes use of the transfer Substitute. It additionally seems to be somewhat bit just like the statues discovered at Gyms. Maybe its design was recycled in any case?
