1/3 of my favourite fire types (non legendary). Decided to go for the Hellhound look rather than a Doberman with horns and chains.

Much better rendition than official images, though I still wish the Ears were kept. 8-)

Thankyou, but Houndoom doesn't have external ear pinna (you might be confused with Houndour)
DW13-COMICS's avatar
Nah, it's that in some cases of modification, the Ears could be added like some artists do for craftiness. 8-)

Oh I see! I personally see Houndour's ears as horn nubs that make the transition into Houndoom make more sense. While I took liberties with this design I generally try not to add or take any features away from the original Pokemon artwork :)

That's fine enuff. Or perhaps his Ears are too small or "destroyed" to see or sumtin. :B

Pokedex: Houndoom, the Dark Pokemon, if you are burned by its flames from its mouth, the pain will never go away.

So, what if you order a houndoom to use flamethrower on a trainers pokemon, does that mean the pokemon will still feel the pain, even after going to the pokemon center?

No idea - the PokeDex has absolutely ridiculous notions like how Magcargo is hotter than the surface of the sun and Pidgeot flies at Mach 2 speeds, but I doubt it seems the Pokecentre technology seems to fix medical trauma that otherwise would easily kill organisms as we know it.

Plus, almost every single time someone battles with a charmander, against a geodude or squirtle is putting it's potential life on the line because, in every game's pokedex, it states.

"When charmander's flame goes out, it dies"

Every time I see one of your realistic pokemon I find myself shouting (literally) OH THAT MAKES SENSE. You're a huge inspiration and I just found your work 5 minutes ago.
