Charmeleon 2

I had a call from a Cinnabar Island ranger who said there had been reports of a mysterious fire type Pokemon in the area. 


I was making my way down a, particularly steep slope when I heard a distant call. It was like a growling yelp that echoed off the sandstone walls. I knew that I would need to be careful, fire types were notoriously aggressive to humans in the wild.


Suddenly, a large Charmeleon trotted into view. Its blazing tail swishing from side to side as its jaws snapped in the air. 


As it turned its back to me, I grabbed an Ultra Ball from my pack and I stepped out from my hiding place. The Charmeleon spun around, locking eyes with me as it let out a deep snarl. It ducked down, aligning its body and began to stalk toward me.


At that moment I saw an opportunity and through some kind of muscle memory, I tapped into my instincts as a young trainer, arched my back, and flung the ball with all my might. The ball curled in the air and whipped into the side of the creature, snapping open. In a bright flash, the Charmeleon was reduced to light and absorbed into the ball.


It landed in the sand with a small bounce. The machine twitched, once, twice, and finally, the 'secure' light turned on, it was caught!

Here is the new updated Charmeleon! It's looking miles better than my first one :)

Just got the best idea for a fakemon, CharMELON. Don't ask why, I have no clue.

if they want make a 3d movie, they should take you for the animations...

There is a rom hack of Pokémon where they are all food based versions of well known Pokémon. It’s called Pokémon sweet version if I’m not mistaken .

They have, its called Detective Pikachu ;) It would be unnatural is it were any brighter

" um, the red part is a little bit pale. "

means its to bright, a stronger/darker red would be better.

I know what you meant. That was my point, a stronger red would be unnatural and would make it feel artificial, plus when light bounces of a semi-matte material its softens and desaturates it, if the colour was stronger it wouldn't fit into the scene. Trust me ;)
