Swoobat, the charming dual-type Psychic/Flying Pokemon that debuted in Generation 5, has a creative enthusiast who has envisioned its old Paradox form. Since Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and the introduction of Paradox forms, artists have started creating new versions of Pokemon, giving fans a fresh take on certain fan-favorite pocket monsters.
In 2022, with the introduction of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, a new species of Pokemon known as Paradox Pokemon will be made available to players. Paradox Pokemon, appearing in Pokemon Scarlet, resemble prehistorical versions of modern-day creatures; Pokemon Violet revealed their futuristic counterparts.
Paradox Pokemon from the past and the future look and act just like modern Pokemon, but they are a different dual type and can’t evolve or breed. Legendary Koraidon and Miraidon aren’t the only Paradox Pokemon with descriptive names; archaic forms of Donphan and Misdreavus go by names like Great Tusk and Flutter Mane.
A Reddit user by the name of Rickashade21 created an ancient Paradox variant of Swoobat and shared it with the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet community. This new Pokemon, named Shifting Wave, is longer than the others yet retains Swoobat’s heart-shaped nose and adorable teeth.
Unlike the modern Swoobat, which uses its wings to get around, the ancient Shifting Wave walks on all fours and has drooping ears and a straight tail, as well as a long pink tail with a heart-shaped twist at the end.
Rickashade21 has already posted other works of art on Reddit. The artist has already designed Iron Heart, a future Paradox adaptation of Swoobat that features the character mingling with a friendly robot.

A drawing of a timid Banette, the spooky Ghost-type Pokemon that debuted in Generation 3, was among the fan art of existing Pokemon they distributed. The artist also routinely accepts commissions from Pokemon enthusiasts who want to get a new look at their favorite pocket monsters, in addition to creating their own original artwork.
Artists have been sharing their unique takes on the past and future forms of familiar species since Pokemon Scarlet and Violet introduced the concept of Paradox variants. Drawings of Sharpedo, Wooper, and Wobbuffet in their Paradox forms have been widely shared online as fans of the pocket monsters imagine what their favorites might look like if they had a Paradox form.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet only officially recognize 16 Paradox Pokemon, including Koraidon and Miraidon, despite the fact that fans have created innumerable variants of these animals. The Nintendo Switch has both Pokemon Scarlet and Violet currently.
