      This isn't concept art, anon-sama, nor is it reference art (which is likely what you mean when you say that). This is the finalized official art, which has historically been made some time after the game is finished. Also you can tell because the foreshortening is uncannily clean, in such a way that isn't consistent with the previous art or how we mentally envision designs. Furthermore, the fact that the pose is identical to it's in-game model.

      Just look at the tail and the back spike. The tail, which is quite large, is almost entirely hidden, and the back spike's trim is geometrically consistent with the in-game model. You can also see this pretty clearly with Paldean Tauros, it's almost 1-1 with the Pokedex image.

      Look at the front leg. It only has an outline and looks like a hoof. Only autlines, not a single stray line to give depth, except the one under the eye, which is probably the only part olnot traced.

          But it's not accurate. The front foot is shapeless looks like an elephant foot. In 3d the lighting would give it the same shape as the back leg, that detail disappears when tracing.

        now THIS is a Pokémon. I like how the back spike is more prominent, and the red accents emphasize the stubby limbs. If you’re going to design a character with a defining shape or theme, go all out. Whatever artists they got working at gamefreak now are worse than the fans. They get paid to play it safe, but you can’t create an iconic character design without pushing the limits of what is already there. The official design might have been alright in 1999, but in a world of fakemon, artists have to wow or start flipping burgers.
