Omega Ruby Wedlocke - 'The Unexpected'(Final Team) by Marriland Omega Ruby Wedlocke - 'The Unexpected'(Final Team) by Marriland
Ohhhhh boy, the final team from my Omega Ruby Wedlocke series I did on YouTube back in early-2015. I've got such mixed memories of that series, especially because, ehhhh, I really don't like Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire for a multitude of reasons. But I figured I would at least give it a chance for a Wedlocke and it had its moments, though what surprised me the most is what my team looked like at the end.


Two of these Pokémon should be very expected to do well, and that's part of the reason why I didn't care for them quite as much, but I still saw it fitting their personalities I guess (mostly Fettuccine — that guy was a jerk! :rage:). However, three of these Pokémon were used for most of the series — despite their appearance, Onion the Minun and Soufflé the Illumise were actually really, REALLY good! I always worried when using them, but they overcame SOOOOO many challenges together, and let's just say that Onion led the series to a particularly shocking finale.

It's such a shame that the end of the series was mired with the whole accidentally-breaking-the-item-limit controversy. It makes me never want to use an item limit again because it's so easy to lose count! (And surprising that, despite this being me third series with a limit, this is the ONLY time I miscounted.) That soured the entire series for me, and it's so sad, because even though I still didn't see it as one of my finer works, there were some good moments in the series and it gave some underdogs a brilliant chance to shine.

Anyway, drawing the first four went very well, and I'm especially pleased with how Onion and Soufflé turned out. Tamale and Cashew? Not really complex. I kinda wish they had a bit more personality to them. I guess Tamale turned out alright... but oh god, Fettuccine is an abomination. I CANNOT DRAW GYARADOS OMG :dead: LIKE SERIOUSLY I SPENT HOURS AND HOURS JUST SKETCHING and it was just miserable. I just kinda resigned myself to the fact that it wouldn't be that great, but oh well, trust me, it nearly was a LOT worse. Bruschetta turned out alright, though.

Well, that's the team, and actually I believe that's the last full team of mine that I've drawn. The X Wedlocke was meant to have art for the final episodes, but that winded up holding up the series for months and it was so frustrating because I just couldn't motivate myself enough to proceed and suffered from the dreaded art block to top it all off. Maybe I'll upload sketches or finish some art as a tribute someday, but until then, here's this lot. :)

Drawn in May 2015

Onion was such an amazing Minun. He deserved the Premier ball.

I never thought Tamale, Onion and Souffle would be the only originals of the team.

Well, Tamale is original of the originals, Tamale is the new Cardinal and Carrot combined.

Very nice! I still remember watching Onion wreck Steven's team. That was great!
