Mashing some worlds together again, this time the Sailor Senshi from Sailor Moon as Pokémon trainers.

World Collide Again, the Sailor Senshi Reimagined as Pokémon Trainers!
Each Sailor Senshi and their starter Pokémon

Now this may seem crazy, but it is something I have done a few times before just for fun. That is to take characters from one franchise and reimagine them as Pokémon Trainers. Previously, I have used Marvel's X-Men characters to reimagine a Pokemon region, with a male a female protagonist, the professor of the region, the evil Team Brotherhood, the Gym Leaders, the Elite Four and the region champion all made from some beloved mutants. Another saw Ash and Pikachu arriving in a region where the characters from the Japanese franchise Precure cover the region. Which I wrote differently, telling the story of Ash's journey in the region.

Having seen a post that inspired me, I now return with the heroes of Sailor Moon and them now reimagined as Pokemon Trainers. I have made each one to cover their development as a trainer, from their starting team all the way to having full powerhouse teams. I hope you all enjoy.
