WOO-HOO! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!! I honestly stayed up a little late to get this, AND our favourite villain, done! And I wanna try a little different than the others I had done before. No colour can express Rakar's pure evilness, but the simplicity of black and dark tone/ MANGA STYLE can pop the common colour in this unique trio.
Also, stay tune for this Friday
Stay safe, people!
P.S: Hope the image doesn't look too busy, because I was experimenting with the tonal functions in Clip Studio Paint.
A/N: While I'm aware most people wanted to pick Darkrai for Rakar, but if you have seen my reasons in Darren's piece, then you'd understand. Also, Rakar doesn't need legendary pokemon to make himself look more evil. With the RIGHT Pokemon, he can.
Dusknoir = To quote Pokedex from "Sword" game, "At the bidding of transmissions from the spirit world, it steals people and Pokémon away. No one knows whether it has a will of its own." Rakar has the ability of taking one's HALF soul, so Dusknoir could literally suck countless souls, ready for Rakar's disposal.
Banette = To quote Pokedex from "Ultra Moon" game, "Resentment at being cast off made it spring into being. Some say that treating it well will satisfy it, and it will once more become a stuffed toy." Resented and isolated since birth, Rakar used all those pent up frustration, hatred and other negative emotions to create a destructive path for revenge.
I will be posting the rest of the OCs with their Pokemon partners, I have some in mind, but I am interested to hear what YOU have in mind.
Lemme know which Pokemon you have in mind for the rest of the Cosium OCs AND SSS! Any Pokemon can be suggested, even Ultra Beasts and Legendaries!

Dusknoir and Banette belong to Pokemon and
Looking at this again, I was going to tell you Dusknoir would be a great pick for Rakar. If you remember the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series, Dusknoir acts kind and smart, then later it is revealed he is evil and manipulative. So yeah Definetely Rakar!
SICK! ...In a good way, I mean. Also idk why, but the look Rakar is giving gives me the same vibe as Louise in bob's burgers going "You could sell your soul. I did and look at me. I'm fine." XD
This is my favorite. Apparently I'm still as edgy as I was when I first discover you the summer before my freshman year of high school. This is incredible and is a great use of color!
Also, Dusknoir I think it was said in the Shield pokedex that trapped its prey in the mouth in their belly and then sucked their victim's soul, leaving only an empty husk away. Jeez, I like ghost pokemon, but some have nightmare-inducing descriptions.
I think so far only the ghost or dark type pokemon have the most tragic or disturbingly DARK background story, and yet NEVER mention it on anime. (Even if they do, they might do it rarely or tone it down)
Yeah, that's a shame, because they have really cool stories. Like, the cubone thing is super dark, the skull of their mother, and when they cry mandibuzz attacks them. That's why I love reading the pokedex, it could be so cool to see those stories animated, like, all the haunted houses and all the tetric environments. Ghosts, curses and echoes of the past, it sounds like a story I would love to see in pokemon, but I guess that would end up raising their age rating.
I got extremely excited seeing this. THIS IS AWESOME! Well done, Dusknoir and Banette fit Rakar PERFECTLY.
(I HATE IT when Eclipse doesn't let you see people's birthdays! Makes it HARD to say Happy Birthday. SO Happy Birthday!)
