Twitter user, @usasuke14, is a fan of both Pokemon and Free!, and recently released some crossover fan art featuring both series, and re-imagines the swimmers as trainers. This one gives off a Team Aqua vs. Team Magma vibe, just like the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/ Omega Ruby/ Alpha Sapphire games.

While this next set of images posted by @usasuke14 shows the respective 6-Pokemon rosters of the Free! swimmers as Pokemon trainers, and some are not surprising at all.
