This may be the only thing of your's I do not like. It doesn't really fit the pokemon's personality. The official Pokemon site of Japan updated with a screenshot of Yanappu's front sprite. Yanappu is a very happy and joyful pokemon. Your artwork doesn't really show that.
I kinda want to start Emonga, but every time I start drawing things, I seem to forget about it. xD At this point, all I'd feel comfortable doing is getting an outlined sketch done, so when we get clear, official-quality artwork of it I can color it in and post it.
