Your profile picture. On any website, this is what other users will see first. Youre allowing your friends to see what you're putting in their heads when they think of you. If you're a Pokemon enthusiast, choosing one of the over 900 Pokemon might be the way to go for your PFP.
There are many choices for selecting the best and cutest Pokemon PFP to match the mood you're aiming to achieve. Whether you want to appear cool and fierce like Suicune or cute and innocent like Jigglypuff, these suggestions will help you achieve your desired appearance.
Five tips to help you get the cutest Pokemon PFP on your server.
1) Pokemon Snap captures
Pokemon Snap is a popular game in which the whole object of your quest is to capture Pokemon at their best (and worst) angles. With the release of New Pokemon Snap, which will be released in 2021 for Nintendo Switch, players will have an easy way to take their photos from the game and use them on other platforms. Some wild Pokemon have the cutest facial expressions and poses, therefore creating your own perfect Pokemon Snap.
You will need to take a screenshot of the photo with the Switchs capture button to send it to social media. Once posted, you may save the image on your phone or computer and modify it to your liking.
New Pokemon Snap has specific missions for capturing certain Pokemon in designated areas, but feel free to make your own shots to make your PFP unique. If you dont have the game yourself, ask a friend to do a mission for you, or check out the other options on this list.
2) Pokemon fan art
There are countless artists out there who enjoy drawing Pokemon fan art, whether for fun or for commission. Many artists will specialize in a particular Pokemon or specific type of Pokemon. There is likely a dedicated fan art community for whatever Pokemon you are looking for.
The key thing to remember about fan art is that it belongs to the artist, and you should never take any image that has been drawn by an artist for use without permission. Sometimes artists will say that they are fine with their work being used as profile pictures, but they prefer that it be included in your bio. Some artists do not want their artwork used as PFPs or header images at all.
One of the best ways to get a truly unique Pokemon PFP is to hire an artist to create it for you. This way, you can get the exact Pokemon you want with the exact background, hat, expression, pose, etc. that you're looking for.
You also know that no one else will have the same impression as you when you commission a piece of art, which is a wonderful and educational way to honor your favorite Pokemon and your personality, while also supporting an independent creator in the process!
3) Pokemon PFPs in-game
You and your partner have just watched Destiny Deoxys for the 20th time. You look over at the Discord call and realize that your matching Mercy and Pharah PFPs are becoming stale. So why not try Latios and Latias instead?
When it comes to finding Pokemon profile pictures, there is a wide variety of possibilities. For instance, you might choose to take the two cover legendaries from your favorite generation or your two favorite Eevee evolutions.
The best way to get the perfect PFP is to take a photo of yourself and your partner or friend conversing with one another. This way, you and your duo are on the same page.
Some suggestions for juggling characters and Pokemon:
- Latios and Latias
- Plusle and Minun
- Any two cover legendaries
- Gym leaders or characters that come in a duo, Liza and Tate, Maxie and Archie, etc.
- Regional variants of the same Pokemon
- Your favorite Eevee evolutions
Screenshots from other Pokemon games or the Pokemon anime
The new Pokemon Snap isnt the only Pokemon game that has PFP-worthy moments, and now that you know how to get screenshots from your Switch onto social media, you can capitalize on these cute moments in-game.
There are a slew of cute moments to capture with the click of the screenshot button, whether it's making curry in Pokemon Sword and Shield or winning a contest in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
If you like Pokemon anime or movies, you may take screenshots of memorable moments while watching and archive them in a future PFP archive. Whether it be Munchlax throwing crumbs all over his face or a trainer holding a Squirtle on the subway, there are plenty of moments that will make the perfect PFP.
5) Photos of a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon profile
An older Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game has featured a key character, who learns about their issues and has many conversations with them along the way.
A small profile image of the speaking Pokemon will appear by the text bubble, not only indicating who is talking, but also indicating what mood they are in. They are not particularly detailed, making them easy to spot and identify even on platforms with very small PFPs or in a group chat. They are already cut to a perfect square, so you don't need to edit them.
The only drawback to using any of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon profiles is that each game only has a limited cast of Pokemon that appears. So if your favorite Pokemon isnt included in the game, you are out of luck.
