Ugh. It begins. Nidoran’s descent into samepose which will last throughout the decades. The anime isn’t exactly the best at getting Nidoran right but at least it hasn’t failed at making him cute, even in Origins.
Old Nidoqueen just validates my insistence on giving her cute fangs (I’m not retconning that for anybody  ̄^ ̄), and she also proves a point.

There’s that 2008 again… anyway an interesting spot pattern. Almost like a radioactive trefoil symbol. Perhaps Fwoozles is radioactive? Great logic there, me.

Likely behind, but more Pokken tidbits for the curious. Also, you don’t have to search for yourselves (:P):

Website’s Developer Notes

Apparently the game will have a brand new system/engine, and as I figured, a lower barrier of entry.

I don’t think I’ve been into keeping up with a Pokemon game since Mystery Dungeon Red and Blue. Perhaps I should curb that enthusiasm somewhat, though.

lazy drawing but you know, whatever.

And I’m pretty sure it’s gonna see a console release.
"But why do you care? You don’t even like Pokemon battling!"
But I do like fighting games. Plus there’s so much that can come out of this. If trainers are left out of this and Pokemon are doing this out of their own ambition (please God), there’s a chance they can attach personalities to the chosen monsters. Also, Smash Bros wasn’t likely going to have any Pokemon I might care about anyway, but Pokken might stand a chance IF they don’t just narrow the roster to only Fighting types.
"Tekken doesn’t even work with Pokemon, tho"
Yeah… :( But because it’s Pokemon, I kind of hope they try new things and make it a little more newb friendly without sacrificing serious tourney level play. Most Pokemon use special attacks so, while I’m figuring a Street Fighter clone would’ve been better suited, let’s see what happens.
Anyway, time to start thinking about a wishlist. I’m only setting myself up for disappointment! :’3

In case you aren’t privy, there’s some big Pokemon announcement tomorrow on Niconico brought to you by Famitsu. They use terms such as (and I’m paraphrasing) “History changing” and, I dunno “Earth shattering” I wasn’t exactly paying attention.
Now, I don’t wanna say it’s gonna be Pokken, but, dangit, it's totally gonna be Detective Pikachu has to be Pokken time! How long are they gonna sit on those trademarks? Set your clocks and ready the dream rosters!
Now watch as it’s actually Pokemon Stadium U and the hype of tens of thousands is crushed faster than you can say Ice Climbers :(

Heh. The timing is ironic.

Such a stupid thing to say but I always love it when people get the amount of spikes on Nidorina’s back correct. It’s not a hard pattern to figure out if you just pay them any kind of attention. That aside, I do wish these were continued further along, though I guess it would have required a lot of paint.

I… have no idea what’s going on.

Just an excuse to draw some favorite of my favorite Pokemon (and a couple of other guys) who, surprise, all just happen to be characters, giving me reason to do so. Cut the image in half and uploaded the halves as well since I know Tumblr won’t supply the full version at max resolution.

Not everybody has some type of hair to stylize, though, but Nidorina will find a way! She stiffened and dyed a line of Nidoqueen’s head  scales and provided her with some props. She looks so comfortable! ^o^ As for Kirby…”here kid, wear your Wheel Ability hat”. 

Eh. I’m almost feeling like doing more art trades, but I need to work on a lot more character sheets. Probably’ll want some of these non-Nidos too.

So let’s get back to some fan art after that string of Ranch pics. Now, sure, Fire Flowers seem cool, but have you seen the way those jerks use them in Mario Kart 8? No way, keep everybody but Mario away from those. Too much power in the wrong hands. Maybe Luigi, but even with him…
