:bulletgreen: NEW POKEMON GAMES X AND Y ANNOUNCED :bulletgreen:

This glorious creature is the legendary Pokemon from Y. It's more likely a wyvern rather than a bird but my first impression of it was a bird. Since we don't know anything about it yet it's hard to say, it could be either. I got so hyped because of these legendaries that I didn't even sacrifice much of thought what this one might be and drew this picture in one sitting. My hand is practically dead but I'm still excited as ever!
I'll draw the wyvern version later. Such an inspiring design!

Also, in my headcanon the names X and Y mean AXIALS (not chromosomes) since the legendaries more vertically (high in the sky) and horizontally (on land).

Overall I really like the new Pokemon and the games seem really awesome, too. And the release date will be worldwide! Aaaaah! I cannot wait!

I hope you like it!

:bulletgreen: In case you still don't know what's going on... :bulletgreen:

Two pictures in a day! This must be a new record.
I wanted to draw the generic fire fox starter because even if it's very generic, I like it a lot. The design is nice and simple and what's even better, it's not very likely to evolve into a Fire/Fighting type. I hope. But yeah, I'm gonna pick Fennekin when I get the games. I like the other two starters, too, but Fennekin is just too adorable.
I think Fennekin might set a small fire to protect itself while it's sleeping. It's hard to draw these new Pokemon since we know so little about them. Well, I wanted to draw a fire fennec sleeping inside a ring of fire.

I'll draw the deer legendary tomorrow. Saving the best for last. :heart:

I hope you like it!

Where is your god now?

HUGE FILE ALERT

Let me present you the team that completely destroyed Unova and the file that almost broke SAI. This is probably the biggest file I've worked on and it's a miracle my laptop didn't crash even once.

This team is probably the cheapest and most ridiculous team I have ever had and I definitely didn't intent do play my Black like this.
After finishing White I wanted to nuzlocke Black but I had so many event Pokemon downloaded on the cartridge that I wanted to get them safe on another cartridge before deleting the save. Well, I mostly had Wi-Fi event Pokemon but I also had some Dream World Pokemon and Liberty Garden Victini which meant I would have to play the game a little further to get them all. But then, at some point while my Mewtwo, Hamlet, had slept through the Striaton gym battle and the opponent's Pokemon had struggled itself to death, I though it would be a good idea to make this the most ridiculous run ever.
The only rule: use only event Pokemon.

I had some pretty dam crazy moments in this run, but it was fun. I tried my best not to use my OP Pokemon too much, but sometimes laziness kicked in and I didn't feel like grinding so I relied on Arceus.

In the end my team consisted of eight Pokemon that I rotated.
Meleth - Serperior (f)
I had always thought that Seperior looked pretty cool but I was a bit hesitant to use one since I had hear it wasn't all that good. Bullshit. I think Serperior is great. It's not all "LET'S OHKO EVERYTHING". It's more balanced, more defensive, but equipped with Coil it becomes lethal. Meleth was simply amazing.

Anubis - Lucario (m)
THE Lucario that made me like Lucario in first place. Before I didn't really like it because of all the hype, but I thank myself for deciding t use the special Dream World Lucario on my team. Lucario kicks ass, I totally love this Pokemon. Anubis was really tough and often saved the day before I had to call the gods in. He wouldn't take anyone's shit.

Hamlet - Mewtwo
A lvl 70 event Mewtwo who just wouldn't listen to me. Very reluctant to do anything, but he was so tough that the foe's Pokemon would just struggle themselves to death while Hamlet took a nap. When he finally started listening to me, he was bloody awesome. Really OP, but he also caused some of the funniest moments in my run.

Merri & Pippin - Victini duo
Yes, I actually had two Victini in my team. I've never had dupes in my team before but I must say it was rather fun to have the gremlin twins causing trouble to the opponent. Merri was caught in Liberty Garden and Pippin was an event Victini with V-Create. You probably know what that means. Unova's a pile of smoking ruins. Well, he didn't listen to me at first, but he wasn't as disobeying as Hamlet. Thanks to these two, I started to really like Victini. Cute fluffy butt-wing Pokemon, my ass! Victini is pretty damn vicious. And I like it better that way.

Odin - Arceus
Dream World Arceus, lvl 100, didn't listen shit, but it was damn funny to have the god of everything in my team. He was my ultimate weapon that actually worked - occasionally. And when he started listening to me...Unova was practically mine to take.

Nox - Darkrai
An event Darkrai that had a pretty fun default moveset. Nox was only lvl 50 when I got him so he started listening to me quite soon. I've never had a Darkrai before nor have I had an opinion on it, but after this experience Darkrai has definitely become cool in my book. Also, I really like drawing Darkrai, such wonderful creepy creatures.

Qilin - Keldeo
The last member of my team. I got it from the Keldeo event - but not from Finland but from the UK! A Brittish qilin... It's quite sad how Keldeo suffers from derp!MLP syndrome, it's a very sad fate since the other musketeers are so cool. Well, I made my Keldeo look anything but a puny pony. It's a very interesting Pokemon and fun to use. The official art just...ugh. Keldeo really isn't that bad. Every team has almost without an exception a Pokemon that I baby a little more than anyone else. For this team that Pokemon would be Qilin.

And thus I conquered Unova for the second time and this time I became the overlord of the region. The end.

They made a mistake. A terrible mistake. One that would cost them greatly. They didn't think she would do it, after all who would have the guts to try and capture God? They told her she would fail and suffer the wrath. She proved them wrong.

The day she returned, they knew she had succeeded. They, Juniper, the gym leaders, the Elite Four, and the Champion, each felt her wrath. One by one they fell to her until she face Alder.

He watched with a mournful face as she took the ball from her belt and threw it up. God appeared before him and lights rained from the heavens. She locked eyes with the Champion and uttered these words before lights rained from the heavens, "This is your final Judgement."

BEHOLD - www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNr6wQ…

I am VERY excited for the new games. and frankly, Yvetal, for me, would be too clichéd for me personally to draw. a giant dragon..bird, Y thing.

but yes! Xerneas looks quite interesting, if not very ghibli-ish in design if you've seen mononoke's forest spirit, but i actually prefer this design.

Ive tried to push using less black in the painting overall here and use more colouring instead of being lazy, so i hope its paid off! I'll be sure to add in a proper pokedex entry when its actually...available. i have no knowledge what the antlers do, what the pokemon does and why its considered a legendary etc.. so i just went for something along the lines of the special antlers attract bug pokemon to it through beautiful colours (the glass like antler parts being a form of special bone that grows out of the pokemons skull ) I'll stop there because i have literally no idea where I'm going with it XD

I also added in butterfree, because I'm a free spirit.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT

I am well aware of what type and class Xerneas is now, yes. I just havent had time to change it and right a pokedex. I will get to it, but please stop reminding me XD

Kyogre – The Sea Basin Pokémon.
Pokedex Number – 382
Type – Water


A remnant of a more ancient time, Kyogre is one of the oldest Pokémon to have ever existed, along with one of the strongest. T is considered a water god by the people of Hoenn and is revered in a myriad of myths and legends for its ability to expand the seas with its control of the weather. Incredibly elusive and magnificent when viewed, the Pokémon is a living relic and is one of the strongest Pokémon on the face of planet. The entry that follows concerns the scant knowledge that has been gathered upon it.

Physiology – Kyogre is an incredibly ancient creature, a living fossil by all accounts. Whether you believe the idea that it was somehow formed at the dawn of time along with its respective elements or was birthed by Arceus itself, the beast has been around for thousands upon thousands of years, and is most likely the last and arguably the most powerful of its kind.

As such, there are many attributes of its form that intrigue scientist, biologist and legendary enthusiast alike. Its massive form, one of the largest sea dwelling Pokémon on earth, is supported by a colossal bulk that has served it well during its many, many years of travel. Its body is a mass of flesh, muscle, sinew and blubber, a true leviathan, and naturally one of the ancestors of modern day whale-like Pokémon. To start, Kyogre’s head. Able to swallow several people whole if it chooses, the face is large and rounded, with a small protruding jaw that conceals rows of elongated cone-shaped teeth, a sign of mammalian origins.

When most sea-dwelling Pokémon are fish like, or at least purely aquatic, Kyogre boasts mammal-like signatures. The lack of gills for one suggests that it was not confined only to oceans in aeons past, but descended from a time when it walked on all fours, further hinted at by its limbs.

Returning to the front end of the creature, Kyogre’s eyes are golden in iris hue, with a dark purple or even black sclera, an attribute it shares with both Groudon and Rayquaza, the masters and national Pokémon of the Hoenn region. Indeed, its eyes are small, but adjusted for both light and deep sea exploration, but are much better served in the depths of its home. It is supposed that the creatures natural affinity to water, along with its dislike of heat, light and the surface atmosphere would cause the creatures eyes to be somewhat ineffective whilst breaking from the water, but not enough study has been possible to further this point.

Bodily, Kyogre sports several sets of fins. Two large, clawed front limbs help the creature to steer and glide through the ocean currents, along with providing an attacking force with thick, almost meter long claws that resemble fingers attached to each bone. This further alludes to a past not completely submerged in the water, or perhaps hailing from a time when predators may have fed upon it. Along the back, two dorsal fins also help with steering and streamlining the creature as it moves, which are then followed by a second set of these smaller fins near the base of the stunted tail.
Interestingly, Kyogre does not possess the common tail flukes of whale Pokémon such as wailmer and its grown form Waillord. It sports a second set of paddles that were assumed to be far larger in size than the front pair. Over time, these thinner muscles and flesh have been bitten, clawed, scratched at or simply fallen away, as they appear shredded, whilst sturdy. The only Kyogre specimen to date that has been documented is covered in scars of varying thickness, width, size and strength, as one would expect from a lifetime of being alive in treacherous seas. From the face, to the sides and fins of the creature, no part of it seems to have been untouched from battle and predators.

The massive body ends in a tail that serves little purpose in terms of attack or defence, but can be used as a useful additional rudder when applying the smaller fins on the lower half of its body. No gills have been found on the creature, along with no blowhole that traditional whales sport, leading scientists to assume that it either simply does not need air, or that it takes oxygen in through some form of cellular diffusion, simply taking what it needs from the water around it.

Concerning display, Kyogre has a creamy pale underbelly, (useful when hunting near the surface to create the illusion of light when looked at from below) that is also continued onto two patch like spots on either side of its head, perhaps used to create the illusion of larger, stalking eyes when in the gloom of the ocean. But far more interestingly, the creature has several parts of skin that contain ancient bioluminescent cells, which glow a deep, menacing red. It is not known if these are territorial displays, or if the creature is flushing blood into these parts to create a display of force, woo a partner or perhaps even communicate with intelligent life such as we humans, but what is known is that is counterparts also sport similar markings, prompting scientists to believe that the ‘runes’ or blood vessels and veins were used in a time when the creatures fought over expanding territories, used almost exclusively against one another as warnings, or perhaps a unique brand of language that only the ancient titans could understand.



Behaviour – Kyogre is a phenomenally rare sight to behold, with a great deal of legends, myths and other media surrounding it originating from Mt Pyre, a goldmine of local folklore and myths for the country. As such, its behaviour is only documented on rare occasions, but all of which have been seemingly peaceful thus far.

Kyogre has the natural ability to cause thunderstorms and heavy rain simply by coming into contact with earth’s atmosphere, its body producing several chemical compounds and unstable molecular disruptions in the air that they spark off large thunderstorms, that grow the longer it spends time at the surface. It also believed that should Kyogre wish, it can use these unstable forces to create and manipulate a number of electrical based attacks, creating its own storms to blast opponents with thunderous bolts and lightning.

Away from combat, Kyogre has been observed lazily drifting just out of sight underneath boats, skimming the surface with its dorsal fins and even yawning as it comes up for air, food, or whatever it so wishes. On the whole, Kyogre does not attack humans or its trainers, even when hunting.

Its intelligence is unknown, but being ancient in nature, it’s unclear if it has wizened with age, or perhaps become dulled by it. In either case, it has also been observed lurching from the water with great force, creating massive waves almost for fun. It has been known to nudge boats of sailors and fishermen playfully and almost curiously, but as a general rule prefers to be left alone.

Concerning food, Kyogre is not a baleen whale, and thus cannot seem to filter feed. Its sharp teeth seem to suggest an actively predatorily diet, perhaps stalking larger prey such as waillord, tentacruel, even seals such as walrien and dewgong. It would be fair to say that any ocean dwelling Pokémon would be at risk when hunted by the leviathan.

The specimen that has been studied is believed to be female, and the last of her kind. To this end, Scientists have noted that its mournfully beautiful song, a chorus that all sea Pokémon respond too in some way, is probably a mating or family based call, as no other creature alive makes it.

Whether this is true or not cannot be determined as one would imagine, but it is thought that the creature ventures to the surface for company, or perhaps to search for a companion even now. This would explain the creature’s curiosity and playfulness when dealing with others; it is not believed to be a violent species.

However, it is capable of great force on a massive scale. Its power to create weather systems alone makes it an incredibly dangerous Pokémon, let alone its wide and varied arsenal of attacks that have been listed. In Open Ocean, when hunting, the creature has once been observed taking on several fully grown Gyarados, sustaining very little damage in the process, its age, power and size allowing it to crush, scar and maim any Pokémon that sees fit to attack it. This is further alluded to in legends, where it is portrayed as a much more chaotic, primordial beast that duelled night and day with its rival, Groudon.

These legends are yet to be truly looked into, but the reports on Groudon's existence worry Hoennian scientists at the possible meeting of the two, their particular mythologies apocalypse is thought to be brought on by the never ending fight of the two creatures should they ever meet.

Habitat – In origin, we simply cannot say what the world was like back when this particular Kyogre was born. We do not even know if there was a populace of them, as no skeletons or remains have been found whilst deep sea divers excavate ruins. As with today’s oceans, Kyogre likely lived as deeply as it could go; it’s incredibly powerful body being able, and even comfortable under the crushing depths of the waters weight. The deep sea trench that runs under Hoenn is thought to be the creature’s natural home, but a miniscule amount of the area has been explored, so it is impossible to say what its ‘home’ truly looks like.

What is known however, is that other ancient Pokémon flock to its presence, particularly the Pokémon Relicanth, known for being one of the few readily available ancient Pokémon for capture. They react almost as one mass that follows the beast, the similar bioluminent patches on their sides reacting to when it grows near, a further sign of a method of ancient communication that modern day aquatic life has left behind.

Because of these creatures, we can gather that the Pokémon has a similar habitat, where Relicanth’s numbers are stronger, but, as before, these creatures too tend to travel, and a mere fraction of the oceans floor simply will not give enough truth to speculation.

Myths/Legends – Hoennian religion focuses on a strong triangle of Pokémon. Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza are all legendary in their own right, but each performs a specific function. Groudon, a master of land and fire, created the landmasses, attempting to expand its territories and those of its kin. Kyogre used its mastery of water and the storms to drench the lands in an attempt to drown the new landmass. Legend states that these creatures duelled almost to the death before Rayquaza, the great dragon god, descended from on high to stop the fighting. Using its mystical power to stop both of their powers, made the Pokémon calm, and sent them to slumber for what could have been millennia.

Legend also states that one of the many artefacts of mount pyre, namely the blue or red orb respectively, can be used to awake these creatures, even control them. Whilst this myth does hold in terms of written evidence, there is no proof that these items hold any other link to the beasts other than in folklore. The elders of the Mt Pyre sanctum hold true to these legends, as it forms the basis of their small, cultural religion.

These legends are always under speculation. For one, there is debate whether Kyogre was the ONLY member of its species, being created at the dawn of time with its counterparts by Arceus, or was a natural breed and a thriving populace of the primordial world. Some believe that in the days past, when these two species clashes, it was on a far larger scale.

A large population of Kyogre could theoretically have created a water source large enough to cause mass flooding on a global scale, along with its foe, Groudon doing the opposite with its magmatic powers spewing landmasses into the ocean. In either case, rather than just these two Pokémon engaged in a cataclysmic battle, it could be said that an all-out war between these species formed the landmasses we see today, as no other Pokémon can boast such powers.

Lugia, of Johtoan lore, is considered to the guardian of the seas, but possesses no real water based powers, save some ones associated with its telekinetic and offensive abilities. Kyogre, on the other hand, is considered far older, and a much stronger contender or ‘creator’ of the seas. These legends are only in theory, but they hold weight in the argument that these two creatures almost drove themselves to extinction with the formation of the world, stopping only when Rayquaza appeared or intervened. Regardless of this, true believers of these legends stay firm to the belief that Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza are in fact one of a kind Pokémon, being the only ones to have ever existed and being somewhat immortal. Along with this, they also believe that their leviathan-like gods are either sleeping or have been asleep for hundreds of thousands of years. Whether this is true or not remains to be answered, as the sightings of the creature recently has led to serious debate amongst the hoennian religious factions concerning the possibility that a similar conflict of legend is soon to begin.

Trainer Policy – Kyogre is protected by Hoennian capture law, forbidding trainers to capture it. It has always been revered by various tribes and religious factors since the founding of the nation, and, along with its almost god-like status, it is considered federal offence to go on the hunt for it.

Along with this, it is considered far too powerful for capture, with the exception of the patented Silph Co. Masterball, which is distributed to league champions and officials only. But this is put in place as a precaution to those seeking a challenge, Kyogre is known to kill when it feels threatened, and not only that, but its aquatic home makes it incredibly hard to even find, let alone challenge. To dissuade trainers, these laws have been put in place, but are often bent or broken. Only scientists, biologists and legendary historians are allowed to travel and explore the deep sea trench in search of it, few ever glimpsing it, and usually, only when it desires you too.

To this end, there can be no doubt, if Kyogre doesn't want to be found, you will not find it.

BEWARE OF THE TEXT WALL.

My next design, Kyogre, because i want to move away from dragons for a little bit. not for too long though... I see kyogre as this big, ancient whale that has attributes of dinosaurs as well as whales. This is purely my fan speculation on the beast mind you, so don't think i think its how everyone else might see it :)

I will probably come back to this to add in more details, perhaps textures etc, because i am NEVER happy with my work, but for now, here it is!

The background image i found on a free wallpaper website, i plan on repainting it...when i really can be bothered...

Groudon – The Continent Pokémon.
Pokedex Number – 383
Type – Ground


Like its opposing force, Kyogre, Groudon is a living relic, a prehistoric monster that towers above many of the mightiest modern day Pokémon. Believed to be the creator of all land, continents and volcanic activity in the Hoenn region (along with the rest of the known world) by its citizens, it has garnered a fearsome, apocalyptic reputation that surrounds its revival and awakening. As a legendary Pokémon, much of the entry that follows is speculative, or based on myths, legends and folklore. However, due to a few, scant viewings; there is enough to put together a suitable entry.

Physiology – Groudon is believed to have existed at the same time as Kyogre in ancient times. It is unclear is there is any truth to the religion that follows Groudon as a creator of landmass in the biblical sense, but much is known about its ability to create landmasses simply by being present. There are no known Pokémon In the world like it, and the towering behemoth has a unique and frighteningly powerful form, let alone powers. Its body mass suggests a creature left behind from a time when Pokémon, and whatever else may have been around all those millions of years ago, were far greater in size and mass, along with power.

Sketches, studies and a handful of photographs have shown the Pokémon to be incredibly large, carrying a massive bulk of thick, rock like armour plating over a similarly hard skin and gargantuan skeleton. For a bipedal creature, it moves incredibly slowly, and is thought not to be able to stand upright at all without aid of its massive tail.

To this end, and considering that Groudon seems to top heavy, leaning over very far as its trudges over the landmasses it creates. It is believed that the monster used to walking on all fours, a quadruped that could perhaps move faster, but seemingly evolved into something far more fearsome in the years that would follow its creation. Indeed, its short legs and longer arms also suggest a level of evidence to support its once quadrupedal form, but these are only down to speculation. To start, Groudons main body seems to be composed of an incredibly thick, tough and muscular skin that is naturally flame retardant (given that it is mostly spotted in or around volcanoes and emits ridiculous levels of heat) and incredibly resilient. On top of this almost impossible skin sits layer after layer of thick, rock like carapace, which is littered with savage scars and great wounds from ancient battles.

The armour of Groudon functions on a level unseen by any Pokémon today. The plates are a reddish brown, incredibly powerful and encrusted with massive stalagmite-like spikes that do not seem to be naturally occurring at birth. Rather, it is thought that these spikes are formed of massive Silica deposits, molten rock that has remained on the creature’s body for so long that they have solidified and become a part of it. It has also been theorised that these spikes were a sign of dominance and power in the ancient world, the larger and more numerous the spikes, the older and more powerful you are.
The plates of the armour are fitted together so that the Pokémon has a large amount of manoeuvrability in its own skin, despite its massive size and sluggish demeanour. The slates of craggy armour shift and meld together as if pieces of a puzzle, locking together when the creature coils, but also being free and wide set enough to lunge, swipe and lurch when the creature sees fit to attack.

The tail is of particular interest to scientists, who have noted its size, shape and weight. Being that the entire creature is incredibly top heavy (referring back to a time when perhaps the beast roamed the land in a different form on all fours), to walk on all fours would require a gargantuan amount of effort on the Pokémon’s part, draining its energy within minutes should it desire to go far. Because of this, it is believed that the tail weighs the creature down at the back, allowing for it so simply drag its heavy bulk forward, rather than have to support its massive upper body on its legs alone.

The legs, whilst sturdy, are very stout, but are still layered in the thick scales and shell of the creature, and are bursting with thick, ancient muscles that allows it to travel, albeit slowly, with its incredibly heavy body. The tail ends with a set of four massive rake like structures that churn up the earth behind it as it moves. It is unknown if these function for this purpose, stimulating the earth behind it for new growth, or are simply a remnant of a more ancient time.

The Pokémon’s head is crested in the same armour that dons the rest of its body, and is twice as fearsome. Its eyes glow with a fierce and hot energy, hollowed out in a skull reminiscent of modern day dragons and dinosaur Pokémon. It also has a mouth filled with vicious teeth, some longer than a human hand in length. The entire inner mouth of Groudon is naturally flame and heat retardant, being that the creature regularly vomits up magma and lava as it walks, spewing new land from a seemingly endless stomach cavity. There have been almost no indications that this leaves the Pokémon scarred or hurt in any way, so one can only assume that the entirety of Groudon inner workings, or at the very least digestive tract, is made up of a similarly flame retardant structure.

Concerning display, Groudon is a rusty, earthy red in colour, with a deeper grey underbelly that bleeds into a bluer colour on the upper side of the creatures back. Interestingly, Groudon, like its ancient counterpart Kyogre, sports ancient bioluminescent cells in particularly sections of skin and on some remote areas of the craggy shell, which glow are vivid and deep blue when the creature so wishes. It is unclear whether these cells are used for territorial displays, for signalling other creatures, intelligent or no, or simply as a natural response when the creature feels threatened.

What is known is that its counterparts also sport similar markings, prompting scientists to believe that the ‘runes’ or blood vessels and veins were used in a time when the creatures fought over expanding territories, used almost exclusively against one another as warnings, or perhaps a unique brand of language that only the ancient titans could understand. Leading scholars and researchers of ancient texts to look into the runes near their homes and respective temples and places of worship.


Behaviour – Groudon has only been glimpsed outside of its ancient home a handful of times in the entire span of human history, and only once or twice in modern times. It is an ancient, towering monolith, but fantastically rare to behold, believed by many to be the last, if not the only one of its kind. However, according to ancient texts, legends and myths of Mt Pyre, Groudon is an incredibly aggressive and fiery Pokémon, capable of causing destruction on a massive scale when it is disturbed; contrasting to the otherwise serene and calm Pokémon Kyogre (this is speculative and must be treated only as theory).

Groudon signature trait in both legend and fact is that it was believed to create landmasses by causing the sun to shine and thus evaporating the water on the shores where it walks. There is a scary amount of truth to these claims, documented the second time Groudon has been seen in more recent times. Groudon’s body is capable of stripping electrons on a massive scale, which makes the atmosphere surrounding it less dense. Because of this ability, (which has been witnessed in the Pokémon move ’Sunny Day’ recently) the clouds around the Pokémon in at least a three miles radius begin to thin, along with the rest of the atmosphere and cause the sun’s rays to hit the earth at a far more direct and intense rate.

As one can imagine, this ability heats up the earth around it to dramatic and intolerable levels for almost any living thing besides rock, ground and fire type Pokémon. This ability to cause the sun’s rays to become intensified in the Pokémon’s vicinity, coupled with the fact that Groudon actively eats rock, magma and lava in its natural habitat and follows by spewing it from its mouth means that Groudon creates masses of new land, expanding continents by large amounts should it ever by allowed to roam free.

Because of the heat generated by its mere presence, Groudon also has the ability to use a number of electrical attacks, along with the unique ability for a non-grass type to manipulate solar molecules and charge them into the attack known as ‘Solar beam’ by officials. This shocking ability again suggests a heritage that is not strictly limited to its current form.

In terms of intelligence, Groudon is not thought to be particularly intelligent, but certainly above average and equally cunning. Whilst Kyogre, like most whale-Pokémon, is believed to be a swift and vastly intelligent creature, capable of curiosity and almost understanding, Groudon doesn’t seem to comprehend anything more than feeding and sleeping.

Unfortunately, this can never be tested in full, as Groudon’s mere presence incinerates smaller and weaker Pokémon, let alone humans should they come close to its form, so for all scientists know, Groudon could be a very compassionate creature, capable of understanding and a degree of intelligence that it simply cannot reciprocate with modern day organisms and Pokémon.

Concerning food, Groudon lives in an often barren environment, but is an active predator. A vast majority of the time, Groudon seems to nourish itself in the same manner that Kyogre does with water, by simply absorbing them through the skin from magma and lava, which are rich with nutrients and chemicals that are able to sustain it for hundreds of years at a time. When awakened however, Groudon has been seen to hunt, blasting Pokémon with its high powered heat and fire attacks before feeding on the ash that remains. It has also been seen feeding directly on Slugma, Magcargo, Numel and Camerupt, Torkoal and many other Pokémon that are able to live in such high temperatures.

The specimen observed in more recent times laying waste to an evacuated village several years ago is believed to be male, if one compares it to modern day reptilian Pokémon. It is therefore believed that the males of this species were the more aggressive of the two genders; however this can only be speculated, as with much of the Pokémon’s history and genetic makeup etc.

Groudon has never been challenged on film or witnessed truly in battle. Its rampage that was documented several years ago has records of it using attacks such as fire blast, earthquake, massive tremor based attacks and even more elemental ones. Along with an entirely new and seemingly unique attack recently (and rightly) named Eruption, which causes the Pokémon to violently expel magmatic lava and pyro kinetic forces from its core in all directions, effectively recreating the effects of a volcanic eruption, with almost as much force. If it wished, this could quite effectively create a new island for it to live within mere hours. This ability has been polarised by Kyogre, which is able to produce water in vast quantities in a similar fashion, effectively carving out its own habitat wherever it sees fit.

Hoenn lore assumes that should Groudon met with Kyogre after being awoken both at the same time, a violent apocalypse would follow, the result of floods and masses eruptions being considered the next cycle for the world, which would then begin anew in a new shape and size. These lore’s are currently being researched into, with thanks to the residents of Mt Pyre for access to their records.

Habitat – In origin, we simply cannot say what the world was like back when this particular Groudon was born. We cannot say whether is has existed for so long in the same form it always has, or what the primordial world had to offer it. Its current habitat is often within active or indeed sleeping volcanoes. In an interesting thought of paradox however, when Groudon awakens, volcanic eruptions occur all over the immediate region, so sleeping volcanoes are often checked to see if the beast is slumbering within them.

Not including the fact that Groudon often feeds directly off of the nutrients present within volcanic magma, it seems to simply enjoys bathing within the substance. As one would expect, it shuns the cold and damp, and much prefers to be submerged within its heated home, whether that be in the core of the magma stream, or simply a warm location.

Other Pokémon follow Groudon in an almost Acolyte-like fashion. Slugma and its evolution Magcargo have been seen following the great lumbering beast as it slowly makes its way across the landscape, seemingly unaware of what or where it its heading towards. What is interesting is that, seeing as Slugma are born from molten magma and various rock materials, these creatures could theoretically have been born from Groudon itself, its unique body being able to vomit up masses of the same substance is made from, but with ancient bacteria and other organisms contained within that modern day Pokémon cannot match. To this end, to study Groudon, Pokémon scientists have begun studying Slugma and Magcargo, somewhat common Pokémon, to see if there is anything they can learn or at the very least, confirm about Groudon’s abilities and ancient world.

Myths/Legends – Hoennian religion focuses on a strong triangle of Pokémon. Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza are all legendary in their own right, but each performs a specific function. Groudon, a master of land and fire, created the landmasses, attempting to expand its territories and those of its kin. Kyogre used its mastery of water and the storms to drench the lands in an attempt to drown the new landmass. Legend states that these creatures duelled almost to the death before Rayquaza, the great dragon god, descended from on high to stop the fighting. Using its mystical power to stop both of their powers, made the Pokémon calm, and sent them to slumber for what could have been millennia.

Legend also states that one of the many artefacts of mount pyre, namely the blue or red orb respectively, can be used to awake these creatures, even control them. Whilst this myth does hold in terms of written evidence, there is no proof that these items hold any other link to the beasts other than in folklore. The elders of the Mt Pyre sanctum hold true to these legends, as it forms the basis of their small, cultural religion.

These legends are always under speculation. For one, there is debate whether Groudon was the ONLY member of its species, being created at the dawn of time with its counterparts by Arceus, or was a natural breed and a thriving populace of the primordial world. Some believe that in the days past, when these two species clashes, it was on a far larger scale.

A large population of Kyogre could theoretically have created a water source large enough to cause mass flooding on a global scale, along with its foe, Groudon doing the opposite with its magmatic powers spewing landmasses into the ocean. In either case, rather than just these two Pokémon engaged in a cataclysmic battle, it could be said that an all-out war between these species formed the landmasses we see today, as no other Pokémon can boast such powers on a scale these two create.

Whilst there are other Pokémon that boast earth and Geokinetic abilities, none can hold a candle to Groudon. Along with this, none can truly ‘Create’ landmass in the same way. These legends are only in theory, but they hold weight in the argument that these two creatures almost drove themselves to extinction with the formation of the world, stopping only when Rayquaza appeared or intervened. Regardless of this, true believers of these legends stay firm to the belief that Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza are in fact one of a kind Pokémon, being the only ones to have ever existed and being somewhat immortal.

Along with this, they also believe that their Behemoth-like gods are either sleeping or have been asleep for hundreds of thousands of years. Whether this is true or not remains to be answered, as the sightings of the creature recently has led to serious debate amongst the hoennian religious factions concerning the possibility that a similar conflict of legend is soon to begin.

Trainer Policy – Groudon is protected by Hoennian capture law, forbidding trainers to capture it. It has always been revered by various tribes and religious factors since the founding of the nation, and, along with its almost god-like status, it is considered federal offence to go on the hunt for it.

Along with this, it is considered far too powerful for capture, with the exception of the patented Silph Co. Masterball, which is distributed to league champions and officials only. Despite this, Trainers have been seeking the creature for any, many years and will naturally continue to do so, despite the high risk of its prize.

Unlike Kyogre, which has an incredibly vast ocean to hide within, Groudon is limited to active volcanoes, or at least to areas with extreme heat properties. Whilst this limits the search; it effectively renders the hunt moot, as Groudon simply cannot be approached by a trainer unprepared for its abilities. Being within 900ft of the titan will result in massive burnings to a human being when Groudon is even sleep, as was witnessed before its awakening and since its initial documentation.

To this end, it’s hard to know just how powerful or violent Groudon could become when threatened, but it also debated at what levels restrictions should apply. On a religious level, on a danger level and on a simply apocalyptic level, Trainers are forbidden from entering the territory Groudon has carved out for itself, for fear of death at the hands of the creature itself or reprisals from officials (up to but not limited to the banning of a Pokémon training licence and lifetime imprisonment).

Caution is advised.

BEWARE OF THE TEXT WALL.

Because of popular demand, i decided to give Groudon a go :)
I do have some more things to do on it, such as more work on the slugma and some more tiny little details, but im off and away for a few days and wanted it up before i left.

After some suggestions on-line, i've gone for the heavier, lumbering approach for Groudon, a mixture of ankylosaurus, tyrannosaurus, gorilla and crustaceans, particularly lobsters :) just to give the mass of its weight across as a very Godzilla-like monster that's incredibly sluggish, but unnaturally powerful.

I hope everyone has had a very merry Christmas, and i hope youre looking forward to the new year!

So the DMAP event's pokemon this week was gastrodon. There is a west and an east form, which made me think east and west coast. I live on the west coast, so I thought "what would this area look like if pokemon were there instead?" This is the result.

I tried to include most pokemon I thought plausible to find in a temperate coastal environment, excluding 5th gen pokemon since they wouldn't be naturally mingling with 1-4th gen. Corsola is kinda pushing it, but oh well. There are sea-lions and seals around here so I decided to include spheal and sealeo, even if they're more cold water, but the water here is pretty cold... Lapras... lets just call it Ogopogo. Some aren't really to scale since well, I wanted them to be smaller. I didn't include any pokemon that although CAN live near the coast have a preference for fresh water (ie. squirtle) or would better fit into open/deep/norther oceans.

If anything this was a good bit of practice, what with character and background interaction, de-focusing on a single character and zooming out the camera. A little chaotic but oh well. It kinda reminds me of those find the animal books. How many shellders are there o_O? even I didn't count hah.

Not sure if I'll make a series out of this or not

For anyone wondering there are 20 different pokemon species in this picture (different evolution stages counted serperately).

I think it took me about 20 hours or more. Based on pidgeons and hawks. It Took forever to draw the feathers.

This will be the last pokemon for a while. I'm sure i'll make some more in the future. But I want to focus my art on a few other things first. Anyway Enjoy!

Commission for lazyhuskie

Let it load a second, its a big gif. Wow this one took forever to get done. Tried a lot new here and really wanted to produce something spectacular. I hope you guys enjoy, here is the flavor text:

Groudon is among the very few surviving titans of old. There is thought to currently be only one Groudon left in the wild. There have been many stories claiming that Groudons were so mighty that they could shape continents and clear the skies, these of course are largely exaggerated. Groudon consumes large quantities of rock and digests specific minerals, expelling the remaining rock, super heated by his furnace like stomach, as lava. This has the effect of slightly altering the landscape. Groudon cannot actually cause the sun to super heat the atmosphere like proclaimed, his body produces waves of intense heat to his surroundings leading some to create the myth that he can control the sun. Little is known about their behavior, though its physiology might suggest aside from rock it is equipped to catch enormous fish or whales, as it possesses conical teeth and hook like claws on very powerful arms. The ecosystems in which Groudons have been discovered to once inhabited thrive yielding a very large diversity to the wildlife.

Magmar is the volcanic cousin of the much more common semi-aquatic Golduck. Though Magmars slightly more territorial and volatile than their cousins. There have been many documented attacks from Magmars, often as high as 300 burn victims a year claim to be attacked by a Magmar. Magmar is seen here fleeing the presence of Groudon with its young Magby precariously held by one ankle.

Magcargo and Slugma are terrestrial cephalopods, thought to be close relatives to Gastrodons. They are very common in volcanic cave systems. Though their bodies appear superficial soft and malleable, they can infact withstand and produce extreme temperatures. Slugma have even been seen hiding in plain sight atop a mound of lava. However there is a very rare subspecies with a silver coloration that cannot trick you, even though try really hard; they will always be losers.

Larvesta are the juvenile stage of the very impressive Volcarona. Volcarona are very dangerously near extinction as it can take as long as 59 months to full develop from a Larvesta stage. Larvesta are very large and thus very easy for predators to pick off when they undergo metamorphosis.

Torkoal are thought to be the cause of the severe decline in the Groudon population. Torkoal would move in herds akin to school of Carvanha, able to cleave all meat from a large animal in a very short period. There were migrations of as many as 800,000 Torkoals at one point. However the middle ages saw an end to the over populated Torkoal species as turtle shell soup became extremely popular. The species was depleted to the brink of extinction before it was made illegal to consume turtle shell soup. The Torkoal race is now on the return as their population grows slow and steady. Is this Torkoal the harbinger of this Groudon's demise?

Season 2 of my Realistic Pokemon series begins with Flygon.

Flygon are a large, desert dwelling dragon. Though of a similar length and habitat to adult male Garchomps, Garchomps have much more mass and are much more aggressive. Adult Flygon are seldom seen setting foot on the ground, due to their natural proclivity towards levitation. Science has not yet discovered the nuances of their helium bladder, though it is known that Flygon's helium bladders are much more efficient than their juvenile state, Vibrava. Flygon skim the desert surface of the desert, diving into the loose sands for prey. They are adept sand swimmers, though they only utilize this skill to collect meals. Flygon have developed a transparent membrane over their sensitive eyes, it acts as a hardy shield from the course sands of its environment.

Trapinch are the earliest stage in the life cycle of a Flygon. They possess a grossly enlarged head which is used as a makeshift sand trap. A Trapinch will burrow into the sands creating a pit of loose sand. It will then reveal only its head while it grips deep roots. Anything Pokemon unlucky enough to stumble upon its pit are swallowed into the maw of the Trapinch. They have even developed clever false eye camouflage to hide the location of their real eye, a trapped Pokemon may try to attack its eyes to break free.

A Trapinch will spend a minimum of 35 months buried in the sand before it has grown large enough wings and a helium bladder to hunt with its trap. This stage of life is known as a Vibrava. Vibrava will develop two large nasal crests, which eventually recede and reappear on the back of the cranium as Flygon. Vibrava its not capable of suspended flight like Flygon, but its smaller wings can be moved with great speed causing vibrations. They will use these vibration to disorient small desert dwelling Pokemon such as idiot Cacneas. This is the noise a Cacnea will make as it desperately fights for its meaningless life.

There are also some other little desert Pokemon in there, but who cares about those ones.

I thought it would be cool to portray Reshiram as sort a proto-bird. Maybe as like an ancestor to Ho-oh is what I was thinking. He has been adorned with silver bangles which he was worshipped by. He is considerably less mammalian than you may be accustomed to, but I thought it would look strange if I threw a goat head on a dinosaur bird body. Alternative title for the paleo art aficionados could be Macroraptor

It took me a while, aye?
:bulletblue:YouTube video: [link]
:bulletblue:Process as a Tumblr photoset: [link]

It has toothed beak, nostril on top of the head and melon for echolocation. The head fin/horn is moveable, as well as back fins. It is covered partialy with penguin-like plumage and partialy by reptile-ish skin. Obviously, my Lugia is water a creature, the best what it can do in air, is gliding. I don't see Lugia walking on land. As it has Flying typing and it lives deep underwater, I can't image such creature having well developed legs. I wanted to reduce the legs to minimum but I thought it would look ridiculous, at least, so I left those little ones which you can see here. To managing such flesh mass, which are "wings", it needs powerful pectoral muscles. There was an option with its belly like a barel but again, it would look funny. I added tail fin, because of the pokemon's desing. But I think with such big "wings", plesiosaur/turtle-like body and many fins here and there, it could succesfuly live without it.

Grayskale Fyeah,
I'm a lazy bitch and I have my rights to be lazy >:V
But... I may go back to the picture after about 8 months and tweak it a little bit.

I forgot I was going to paint its legs in pale: in the middle of the painting I thought about something with its limbs position and it ends like that, oh well:shrug:

Fire Pocketmanz.

Charizard: My favourite of all starters, because it's a dragon. However, I didn't want to go all out European dragon/dinosaur or too lizard like for this guy, and so I tried to fuse some of those aspects together to get something a little less generic but with all the aspects of a dragon badass that it is.

Typhlosion: Mix of the Honey Badger and Wolverine. Typhlosion is a quadruped, but is easily bipedal. However, it's so often depicted as a biped I thought it would be refreshing to put it down on all fours (although this version can easily walk on two legs). The flames on it's back are superheated quills.

Blaziken: The hardest but the most fun to redesign. Blaziken looks way too humanoid and Digimon-like in the canon (cough Birdramon cross Agunimon anyone?) and I needed to stray from an anthro looking creature. Based on a Shamo Cockfighting ChickenSecretary Bird and the Cochin Chicken for fluffy legs. Edited the leg anatomy too, from Plantigrade to Digitigrade, looks way more natural.

Infernape: Not an ape, it has a tail. So based it on Old World Monkeys such as Langurs and Macaques. In the wild they're naturally found with yellow swilrs on their bodies, but many trainers add traditional gold braces to protect them in martial arts. Looked cool that way.

Emboar: Tried making this guy bipedal with massive arms, looked stupid. So my version is on all fours. Based on a Wild Boar and the prehistoric Daedon (which was massive). Again, they're found with natural golden swirls on their fur, but usually have a metal belt attached, probably for fighting or tradition.

I love Dragons so drawing Flygon was easy; I referenced house fly characteristics to help add that insect feel to Flygon without going overboard.

A few hours, Photoshop + Tablet. Now time to do Haxorus and Garchomp!

You didn't see that coming, did you? xD
Yeah, I finally did Jolteon! =D
I started it two days ago. I had to argue with myself because I hate painting fur by now (Flareon was just a hell of fur and Jolteon imho has fur, too. Btw making short fur all by yourself is the worst! *looks at Flareons butt* xD hurrdurrfurr). Then I remembered that *CoyoteMange did that awesome brushset back then and so I gave it a try. And it is frakkin' awesome.^^ I know she doesn't want credit anymore, but this helped me so much.
Another thing that helped was this photo of a running dog: [link]
I don't know the photographer but I'm very happy I found this pose (If someone knows him/her/it/everything in between please tell me).

Jolteon combines cheetah, fennec and porcupine elements. Its claws cannot be retracted to provide perfect hold while running, which rubs them down, but Jolteon doesn't rely on raw power to hunt prey either.

Thanks to all people who answered my poll about Jolteon and Glaceon. While working on all eevees, I constantly thought about what to do with Glacy and I had no idea until now and you gave me that time.^^

Oh and another thing that bothered me was my love for Gamefreak and Pokémon... which was heavily distorted for months..... then they announced X/Y AND HOLY SHIT I'M IN LOVE AGAIN!!! QvQ

In my last journal entry I asked for your favourite Pokémon and Leafeon got the most hits (2 lol)

It has no real mouth due to the fact that it is some kind of mutated plant.

This is another eeveelution in my style.

Today I got two new watchers. They both faved my poké-pics, so I decided to upload this little fellow.

The Pokedex says that its molecular structure is similar to water, making it invisible while diving.
This is actually impossible, but I thought Vapo could have developed skin patterns that resemble water reflection in some way, for camouflage. Plus, I added the fins it used to have back in Red/Blue.

I thought of using Articuno at first but then it occurred to me that I've done both a picture of Articuno and Zapdos but nothing with Moltres so I decided to let him shine
I really wanted to use some vibrant colours for this so WOOO fire errywhere

Probably one of the most requested pokémon I've been asked to do- Suicune.
I made this for a contest I ran over on my facebook page where the winner was to receive a free drawing. I'll be announcing the next time I hold a similar contest, but as of now you can only enter via facebook.


"Suicune is based on the Chinese and Japanese Qilin, a form of unicorn that has traits of deer, giraffes, and other beasts. It is able to walk on water and is known to be a powerful and peaceful creature. The horn on Suicune's head matches the description of the beast's antler's and the long dragon-like muzzle. It also appears that Suicune, unlike its kin, is a herbivore due to its molar teeth, face and eye orientation.......unlike Entei or Raikou, its teeth are blunt, as if those of an herbivore" Bulbapedia

The whole dog/cat thing does not really work for me, especially after doing some research. Bulbapedia refers to suicune as one of the three "Beasts" which does not make any reference to a dog or cat trio. Not to mention I really like the thought of suicune as a creature with unicorn roots.



SO.
I decided to go with a design that is more deer-like in the face. Those "crystal horns" never made much sense to me, so I tried to stick to the design the best I could, and made them separate at the end- which I think would make it more functional and aesthetically pleasing.

The body was easier, I went with a more canine/feline deal and made those "ribbons" into tails.

The background was a lot of fun, playing with the colors and composition made this a really enjoyable process. Though I am going to try my hand at corel painter. I learned with this piece there are just some things photoshop doesn't do as well.

A commission for :iconnoresemblance: of Hydreigon.

The composition for this piece gave me a little trouble at first- I think that Hydreigon has too many wings and the heads were also hard to squeeze in. However, with a bit of practice, I found something I finally liked.

Because it is a dragon/dark, I tried to make the lighting and background colors reflect its typing.
