Hitmontop Used Triple Kick by BrendanCorris Hitmontop Used Triple Kick by BrendanCorris
Here's my contribution to the Gen 2 Pokemon tribute at Game Art HQ (game-art-hq.deviantart.com/)
Hitmontop is one of the cooler designs in Gen 2 I feel. Based on the Brazilian fighting style, Capoeira, where the fighter is constantly moving and fights in an almost dance-like manner, Hitmontop was an added alternate form for Gen 1's Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan. Oddly, though, Top did't get named after a famous martial artist as Lee and Chan were (Bruce Lee for kicking makes sense, but I still don't get why the boxer is named after Jackie Chan. Maybe Hitmonali sounded too much like lee).

Yeah, I love that aspect of hitmontops lore and design. Definitely an all-time fav pokemon for me, and he's good in battles as well.

Yesss!
Hitmontop is one of my all-time favourite designs and I think you did an excellent job with it. The spinning feet in particular are fantastically drawn!
