Hatterene is a dual Psychic/Fairy-type Pokémon which debuted in Pokémon Sword and Shield. The Pokémon's feminine figure inspired a large amount of fan art after its debut, with fan artists often depicting it with fellow Psychic/Fairy-type Gardevoir.
Hatterene debuted in Pokémon Sword and Shield. She is the final evolution of the Hatenna line. All Hatterene are female. Its descriptions read "It emits psychic power strong enough to cause headaches as a deterrent to the approach of others" (Sword ) and "If you're too loud around it, you risk being torn apart by the claws on its tentacle. This Pokémon is also known as the "Forest Witch" (Shield ). Its Gigantamax form descriptions are, "This Pokémon can read the emotions of creatures over 30 miles away. The minute it senses hostility, it goes on the attack" (Sword ) and "Beams like lightning shoot down from its tentacles. It's known to some as the Raging Goddess" (Shield ).
The Pokémon was a quick hit with fan artists, who took to her feminine figure. Once she leaked with along with the Galar dex two weeks prior to the game, fan artists began posting art. Twitter user Lucyfer posted art of her (shown below, left). Twitter user FUNTIMEDELUXEGO posted art of Gardevoir, a Pokémon who sparked a similar reaction at her debut, consoling Hatterene, gaining over 100 retweets and 540 likes (shown below, right).
A significant amount of the fan art focused on a perceived rivalry between Gardevoir and Hatterene, as the Pokémon are the same type and were similarly beloved by fans. This was exacerbated by a tweet by @OnlineHomo which showed the two apparently fighting in the game's Pokécamp feature (shown below, left). Pixiv user Walfajor posted art of the moment (shown below, right).
