-Nidoking- by arvalis -Nidoking- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


Nidoking was always a pretty cool looking pokemon, though I never used him in a game until I played FireRed last year. This Nidoking here is grumpy because he has been left with the kids. There is also a mischievous Pikachu that has taken advantage of the Nidoking's colorblindness and snuck its way into the family. You can see the process recording over at My Livestream Channel

I wish detective Pikachu looked like this instead of the stuffed animal they went with... (Ps. Congrats, I heard you worked on it)

Why are these realistic Pokemon art so popular? Real life animals are cool but we take them for granted. We need the right perspective to look at something, even a little rodent, to find it exciting and cute again. I think this Pokemon movie could've done something legitimately unique.

It looks good except for the further arm. It looks low quality.

"Nidoking was always a pretty cool looking pokemon, though I never used him in a game until I played FireRed last year"
You must be kidding. Hahaha
He was a so used pokémon through ages. Due to his flexibility (with moves and even stats, eventhough none of them were high until his buff on Attack by Gen VI) and the fact that he could counter every one of his weakness. He was my very one favorite for years. Now he just shares it with Swampert and Feraligator (this one just visually, I love crocodiles).

Nidoqueen? I'd be fascinating to see the contrast and maybe for them to have grown up side by side developing to cover each others weak points in order to as effectively protect the family.

He's doing raichu on one of his pieces in the future - Zapdos. And how do I know you ask? Well he has a wiki of all his future arts and his present ones. :D

I always thought Nidoking was too short for something so awesome-looking.

That being said, I wouldn't want to tussle with that thing!

Really cute edition.
Loving the little Nido offspring seeking protection underneath the Nidoking.
They look good, Nidoking looks good, Pikachu looks good.

They all look good.

It says in the description--Nidoking is colorblind, thus cannot tell Pikachu's color from that of the babies
