Lickitung - Shining Forest art by nintendo-jr Lickitung - Shining Forest art by nintendo-jr
I think this is my favourite artwork and my best drawing yet :D I love how everything came to be, the background and Lickitung. Also it has some cool details, like the saliva, the grass/sprouts on the ground, the sun effect and the bushes on the back. I think its like a mix between Arita and Himeno.
I will do the card soon (It is uncommon and is obviously Colorless) and Lickilicky will get a more simpler artwork (Like Togepi or SH Drifloon) Talking about Colorless, I think that making Dialga, Palkia and Giratina Colorless (Because they are type Dragon) would be original as it would represent its status as the Drago Trio. Thoughts?

Really? Maybe, without the background and few edits here and there.

Ack, this is so pretty! I wish this was in an official card. ;A;
It looks so professional!~
And Lickitung's one of my fav. 1st season Pokémon. :excited: (Before they killed it with a stupid unnecessary evo. >_> )

Excellent job! :D

Thank you so much :D

Yeah, Lickitung is one of my fav from the first generation too! It is so awesome ^_^
I don't think they killed it with Lickilicky, from a battling/stat point of view it needed one AND if Lickitung was useless in battling it was forgettable, so it needed Lickilicky to rose.
Also, Lickilciky is uber cute and awesome on its way; Take my example if they didn't make Lickilicky, Lickitung would be lower on my faves list :D

And my final point, from Prof. Rowan tests :P the 90% evolves so they are aiming to that percentage XD

Thanks again ^_^

Welcomes. =p

And eh, I just think it's really unnecessary. Lickitung looks fine just the way it is. That's why I stopped making pre-evos and evos for actual Pokemon, haha. xD;

Well there are some actual Pokémon that REALLY need an Evo: Dunsparce, Farfetch'd. I rest my case XD

Eeeerm, not really, but that's just me. xD; Unless Ken sugimori designs it, I'm gonna to disagree. 'Cause apparently the 3rd and 4th season designers weren't ken, which kinda explains it,but yeah. If the did come out with evos for them (Watch as they pop up in the 5th season.) the evos better look menacing D< And Pokémon-like!

I not in the "Lets hate the 3rd and 4th generation"-train so I would like to see evos of old Pokémon, especially because some from the 4th gen were amazing (Tsngrowth, Lickilicky, Electivire, Dusknoir, Porygon-Z, Weavile)
I think that Ken Sugi designed the 3rd and 4th gen Pokémon :D I not too sure on the 3rd but I sure that he designed the 4th.
Something I would like to state is that the pre-evos of the 3rd and 4th are really unnecesary (Aside from Wynaut <3) but they are uber cute >.< I don't know which method use to determine which Pokémon gets a pre-evo XD

Farfetch'd evo (If it gets one) should have legendary stats, a signature move and be the coolest Pokémon ever made!!! XD *Nintendo Jr is knocked out from excitament*
Cool conversation ;)

I didn't say I didn't like the 3rd or 4th. (Most of 4th I do, but not the point. xD)

Well, I heard Ken kinda helped, but wasn't really a designer for the 3rd and 4th. :P

I love Buisel! D: And bunearyyy~ and lopunny xD;

Hm...It woulda been cool if Tangela had gotten an evo, or alt. evo that shows the true Tangela. Without the vines. o:

If farfetch'd gets an evo, I bet farfeth'd will be really REALLY hard to find in said game. Maybe a 1 of a kind in the game, or something. :ohnoes:

I have to be one of the few persons that don't like Buizel is it? I don't like it, and I don't like that the Pokémon Company tries to make it a "cool" Pokémon in a forced way >.> But thats just me!
I love Buneary and Lopunny too ^_^ But there a lot more that are awesome from the 4th (Drifloon for example)

It would be cool, but it may be a little boring a Tangela without vines IMO
Well, Farfetch'd was always rare, so I don't find it as a surprise it to be more rarer :P
