The Special Ones


Badge Awards


...I did it. It's finished. Even it took three weeks and something like 80 hours (!!!) I really drew all of the pokémon teams I have ever used in my games. It's 54 characters in one picture there. My previous record was 10 characters. And they were all just normal canines. Zomg.

So aah, what could I say about this now, when I have already stared this for so long time... Well, I could give you a couple of sketches! They are pretty, um, interesting things to see. XD
[link] [link]
The first one is the one I mainly used and the second one contains details, that I wanted to sketch a bit more for one reason or another. You just gotta love especially the first pic. It looks purely professional.

I must admit that I'm a little bit proud of this whole mess. Yeeees I know there would be a lot to improve, but still. So could you please just be polite and let me be happy for a while? ^^' I have already nazied myself enough about the perspective, shadows and other stuff, so now I would just like to be happy that I don't need to draw anything anymore. No more group pictures for me in another five years, please!

And the rest of this description is about uuh aah pokémon details, so anyone not interested in them can happily skip the whole thing!

I was just a tiny kid when playing my first Pokémon game - I knew nothing about playing in general and could understand something like two words of English. Considering this (and all the major problems I faced in the game...) I actually managed to collect quite decent team for myself!
Charizard (CHAR/CHARI?) - male - The striped and old looking lizardon, who I accidentally nicknamed and afterwards renamed back into just plain CHARIZARD. That time I could not understand the wrongness of cheating, so I fed him a bunch of cloned Rare candies to make him grow quickly to Lvl. 100. That's why he has stretch marks on his wings: he was forced to grow too fast. ;__;
Gyarados - male - The blue one, obviously. Looks a bit goofy, 'cause he stayed as magikarp for way too long. I didn't know how to take him out of daycare. XP
Raichu - female - The left one, who is holding her baby pikachu. (These kind of relationships are of course just my imagination.)
Pidgeot - male - The one at right side of his mate, the another pidgeot.
Dugtrio - female - I just love the idea of girly dugtrio! XD They are usually seen just ugly and worthless pieces of ---, but my diggers has long eyelashes and bitchy attitude. This is the one at right.
Mewtwo - The confused clone'mon sitting on the top of kyogre.

Probably the dullest of all the main series games. I just used the 'mons that the game offered you, plus a couple of those I already had used once in Blue. Oh this idiotism.
Pikachu - male - The son of two raichu at the center of the pic. The smallest pokémon of this whole group!
Charizard - male - The one who is trying to scorch flying birdies.
Blastoise - male - I have no idea is he arguing with feraligatr or are they just playing rock-paper-scissors. I prefer the last option, though. It sounds nicer.
Venusaur - male - This smaller-than-average plantsaurus is the father of meganium next to him.
Pidgeot - female - The one who is somehow flying upside down...
Dugtrio - female - Another bitchy mole, the one at the left.

The old favorite game of mine. <3 Even I liked this game sooo much, I actually never built a proper team on it. I really can't remember why.
Meganium - female - The first and only pokémon I have trained to Lvl. 100. She is the one who has roserade sitting on her back and she is the mother of that another meganium.
Tyranitar - male - The angry, dark looking fellow, who apparently has some interest on another pseudo-legendary, dragonite.
Gyarados - male - You should never underestimate the coolness of red gyarados! He is actually the only shiny I have ever had in my team.
Scyther - female -Well, she never was really a part of my fighting team: she was actually my false swiper for catching pokémon. But there weren't six 'mon in my main team, so she can fly there for now. Because of her job the tips of her blades are blunted a bit.
Lugia - Using legendaries in team was sooo cool. It really was. Oh those days.
Ho-Oh (HOUOU) - I hated the 'mon's English name so much, that I nicknamed him HOUOU. XD

...oh God do really I need to reveal these nicknames to you? Do I? Do I? I guess I do. And mention that I really thought they were the coolest thing ever, too.
Feraligatr (WATERBEAST) - male - I've never liked feraligatr, but I had to choose him in order to get totodile in my Silver's pokédex. (I eventually got all but mew and celebi on it!) Sad to say, but I kind of hated him a lot.
Lapras (OCEANBEAM) - male - The true water-type of my team. He, in other hand, I adored. He is the one at right.
Houndoom (FIREBREATH) - female - Because of lapras I fell in love with dual-types, so I took this hellhound in my team, too.
Graveler (GIANTROCK) - male - Hmm, why I didn't make him evolve..? I really don't remember anymore.
Noctowl (NIGHTWISH) - female - The weirdest thing with this fellow is that I'm pretty sure her name has nothing to do with the Nightwish-band. But oh well, can't be 100 % sure anymore.
Raichu (SHOCKWAVE) - male - The proud father of the pikachu, sitting at the right side of his beloved family.

And so the devolution happened - with me and with the game. Even I love the 3rd gen pokémon I never understood why they took away the clock and the animated sprites. I personally took away nicknames and normal pokémon. Legendaries were here again, ugh.
Blaziken - male - Even he looks nice and innocent in this pic, he is the most badass pokémon I ever had - in the game and in my imagination. Hanging with god-like 'mon made him to think he is superios creature as well, I guess. AND HE IS MY FAVORITE STARTER EVER. Period.
Manectric - male - Also a bit too self-centered being, who seems to have some weird love-hate-gay-relationship with luxray. He is a good friend and a partner in crime of blaziken.
Mightyena - male - Not-so-scary and maybe even a bit slow-minded doggie. He is nice and friendly creature, though.
Gardevoir - female - Very righteous 'mon, who protects mightyena from being bullied by "b & m". Is deeply in love with alakazam.
Kyogre - Gigantic whale, who prefers to hang out just with other legendaries. Despises blaziken.
Rayquaza - The largest creature of the whole gang. He knows he could just sweep almost anyone away, but is still pretty docile guy.

Oh hello nice team with no legendaries! Even you don't have nicknames, you make a pretty okay team, like the game you are from. Nothing mind-blowing, but still cool.
Charizard - male - Third of his kind, oh man! The one who is banging his fist to his palm. Or something like that.
Raticate - male - Even he is pretty useless, he is one of my favorite species in the whole Pokémania.
Sandslash - male - And so is he! Even, eh, dugtrio is cool too, I'm happy I finally had a chance to use sandslash, too.
Alakazam - male - I've never used that much psychic type or humanshape pokémon, but this guy was just totally sweeping anything off the field. And he makes a pretty couple with gardevoir.
Lapras - female - I just wanted to have one more lapras, 'cause they are such kewl killers, too! 8)
Dragonite - female - To be honest I liked her more as dragonair, but to ease my payne I like to think that she didn't lose all of her beauty in evolution. That's where the eyelashes step in. (God I'm idiot!)

Uh. Even I don't have any particular reason for it, I never really liked this game. It is oooookay I guess, but still... Not as good as it could be. But hey, finally the nicknames make their return! They are still pretty idiotic, but at least now I knew it myself, too. = P
Infernape (FIRELE) - male - He is a bit sensitive about the fact that he is easily the shortest fire starter.
Luxray (STARALEO) - male - Since there aren't too many felines in the group, he usually hangs around with the canines. Has a complicated relationship with manectric.
Roserade (BURIA) - male - He is always worried that infernape's head fire would burn him, which would be catastrophical.
Staraptor (SERY) - male - ...just now I realized that this is probably the gayest team I've ever had. XD There are the luxray, roserade and then this hair freak birdie. What happened?
Weavile (SINIEREVEL) - female - Even she shares her species (kind of) and name with Saga's Sinierevel [link] they are two compleately different creatures. I just stole the name from this weavile-girl to the funky sneasel-boy.
Gastrodon (SLIMMOS) - male - My cutiecutie slimy sea slug. <3 Love you more than anything. Even though using Surf with small creature like this would really be... Complicated.

My current favorite. I don't even need to tell more.
Meganium (CHIHIRO) - female - Hmm, I wonder why I didn't choose cyndaquil, since it's pretty nice creature, too. But oh well, now I can make this flowerbeast to be a daughter of another meganium and venusaur.
Ampharos (MERIIPU) - female - Before capturing this fellow I never had any kind of opinnion of its evolution line, but now I just love it.
Quagsire (WOOPSIRE) - male - The guy who is staring your face. >8) He is also one of those I never even thought of having in my team, but then it just happened.
Togekiss (PRII) - female - Freaky coincidence, that I happened to have both female starter and female togepi in this game.
Umbreon (SHADE) - male - FINALLY I had a chance to use my old favorite! This poor creature has scars on his arm after fighting against one particular espeon. I'm afraid they are pretty much rivals nowadays.
Skarmory (SKARRI) - male - I was so freaking scared to draw this steelbird, but after all it ended up looking better than I dared to hope. Phew.

I haven't played this too much yet, but at least I have my team build to it's final form. (And my not too much is umm maybe 60 hours.) Even I didn't like many of the 5th gen pokémon at the beginning at all, I learned to tolerate them and even to like some.
Samurott (Azure) - female - It was a hard choice between oshawott and snivy, but somehow I ended up to take this samuraiotter.
Excadrill (Mora) - male - Aww drawing this guy was horrible, since I always imagined him to be a LOT bigger. XD
Galvantula (Aramis) - female - I'm not sure how she ended up having a name of a male musketeer... Or yeeees I was thinking something similar to arachnid and then I guess this happened.
Mienshao (Mei Shin) - female - Gotta love a weasel who uses it's fur as a whip! Unfortunately for Mei Shin blaziken loves her too, in a weird and twisted way.
Chandelure (Halo) - male - I have no idea why I ended up liking this pokémon so freakin' much! Even it was almost sad to make him evolve, since I loved lampent's voice even more. Looks like Aramis has knit some web on him.
Hydreigon (Hades) - male - I've always thought that it would be horrible to have three heads. Ugh. It does seem to bother tyranitar, too. Or maybe it's just the fact that the dragon is sitting on his back.

Yooo grats for you for getting this done! I think me and many other people who play Pokemon have dreamed of drawing all of their past teams in a picture but this is so cool to look at. So many fun details and character interactions to look at!
