I want this to be cannon so badly-
dragoeniex Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2017
I'm really curious about what your description of those later evolution phases where the plant assumes more control would be! Does it become sentient? Does the host end up on autopilot, losing consciousness, or do they share control? Something different?
aaron-phillips Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2017
This is really cool! It just frustrates me when Bulbasaur is compared to a toad. "Saur" literally means "lizard". So it is more likely some kind of dinosaur-like creature, rather than a toad.

This is both some of the most hilarious things I've ever seen, and yet some of the most fascinatingly f*** up at the same damn time!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a SPECIAL ROOM to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 minutes someone will say i love you or I'm SORRY

This is fake and nothing more the a scam. Please do not spam this around. Nothing is going to happen if you just keep on scrolling.

I have scrolled past hundreds of these and nothing has happened.
DannyAndYoko Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2017
It's just a stupid chain comment.
The creator of which just made it for fun and wants to see how far it will spread. XD
Alriandi Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It is spam and can get you in trouble for spamming it around.

That too XD

I've been wondering what was inside the bulb of a bulbasaur. :wow:

Well, its now creepier than Parasect
JJWS92 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
So it's the plant that controls the creature, not the other way around? So Ash's Bulbasaur is really the plant puppeteering the body?
Ganondox Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Neither, they function together. 
RUdigitized Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2017  Student Digital Artist
I feel like the innards should be like the inside of a plant :/ oh these are amazing btw
SchmiedeTraum Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2016
Interesting artwork.
gavrevil Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2016
i like symbiotes, much of S.F or fantasy genre, someone should try to make one
TheBechtloff Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2016
These are awesome. I hope you can get them together in a book.
TheRoyalCommunist Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2016
To tell the truth, I never thought about Bulbasaur without the plant on its back. Kinda creepy to realize how integrated the plant is into every part of its body, and how different the evolution line would look without it.

Some really fun designs, lovely work dude!

now, for the first time in forever, my childhood has been ruined, which is weird because I have grown to hate pokemon. good job! 
EmmetEarwax Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
In my fan-fics, Plantanime is the pokemonarch of plant-animals, just as Combuskhan is of fire pokemon, and Aqualunge of water types. These three answer to Mutu, grand high king-emperor of all pokemon -and foe of all mankind. They appear twice.

Combuskhan was challanged by Moltres in the 1st one.
DerpyFireRushHooves Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2016
I would love to see the Ghost type ones... all of the others you already made seems biological accurate to me.
Keep Up the good work man.

Why toadlike? It's a reptile, unless you mean Horny Toad, which I was under theimpression was a retired name for the Horned Lizard...
MidnightStorm022 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
It's not retired in Arizona
BANEFUL-BUNKER Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2016
This is really really interesting! as im incredibly curious, may i ask about what happens between the plant/pokemon relationship in the later evolutions? (the decreased neural function and change in behaviour?)
Christopher-Stoll Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
You'll just have to wait for the Pokénatomy entries on Ivysaur and Venusaur.
Galaxas Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I was wondering the same, can't wait to see them!
AvikaW Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2016
It's a symbiotic relationship, which means that both organisms benefit. In a parasitic relationship, One organism benefits at the other's expense. An example would be the human-mosquito relationship. The mosquito gets nutrient-rich blood while the human only gets malaria.
ArcanisBorn Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2016
If neither can survive without the other, and that they both benefit each other, it would be accurate to call this a "Symbiotic Relationship", not a "parasitic" one.  Parasites often use another organism to the detriment of the host.  An example would be the Jewel wasp.  An example of a symbiotic relationship would be the relationship between cattle egrets and cattle.
JerardGiles Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2016
How about a samurott one? Loving this stuff
Christopher-Stoll Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
I'm only working on the original 151 for now.
JerardGiles Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2016
Ok thats cool, in that case maybe abra or its evolutions?
XUhuruX Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow these are awesome! It adds science to Pokemon. :)
Sure would like to see more. I suggest Eevee or Onix, since you're doing the 1st generation. :D
Filby Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2016
This is beautiful.

If you still want suggestions, maybe Abra, Kadabra, or Alakazam.
travellingtraveller Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2016
Parasitic means one being profits while the other is harmed, since they both depend on each other to live it would be symbiotic.
EmmetEarwax Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Who's to say whether ALL animals are symbionts? The mitochrondria in our cells are likely derived from bacteria that invaded the Protistan beginnings and became energy producers. They have their own DNA, perhaps reduced so they can not leave the animal cell.
DrStarchild Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2016
I have to say this, if they're mutually dependent, it's a symbiont, not a parasite.
tsarinvisible Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I bet the pros won't go as detailed as this if they were to make a pokemon real-life adaptation. Would love to see Oshawott anatomy!
EurekaTrollcat Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I always imagined that Bulbasaur would have its bulb's roots extend through the muscle system, so I enjoyed seeing this!
randomname314 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2016
Wow... I must say... This is even more detail then the pokedex! Really interesting! =)
