The amazing custom Game Boy Color was created by a user by the name of u/Takezoretoro, who posted his creation on one of the main sites Pokemon subreddits. Rather than using Charizard’s signature orange, red, and cream color scheme that fans are familiar with, the artist opts for a shimmering gold and silver palette instead. Colors are mottled in seemingly random shapes, contrasting with the Game Boy’s original black color, with a stylized Charizard centered over the controls. The d-pad and buttons stand out from the rest of the system, filled with metallic flecks of Charizard’s usual fiery color scheme.
