The lights are on
Pokémon Conquest takes place in feudal Japan (we think), and it would have been amazing if it looked closer to the art featured here.
Conquest is a pretty good game, but it never seemed to fully embrace its feudal Japan setting. You can check out our review of the game here, and our Pokémon Conquest Test Chamber here, where we try to figure out what exactly is going on in the game much to Lady Reiner's dismay.
The art was posted by Reddit user CaptChuckles, but I'm not sure if he or she was the actual artist. In any case, it certainly looks awesome.
UPDATE: Reader Todd Hansen was nice enough to point me to the original artist of this great Pokémon artwork. Jed Henry is the talented illustrator and you can check out more of his work by clicking here.

Now that, I would consider buying!
That sure would have been nice
This is a really goood concept LOL!
Awesome art. Although I love Pokemon Conquest just the way it is.
I thought Pikachu was a mouse? Looks like new age dog fighting to me.
That Pikachu looks disturbing, but I've always digged this Japanese art style. The proper name for it escapes me at the moment.
Well this is interesting
If the game was actually like this, I would be playing it right now.
