my contribution for day one of sinnoh week - favorite starter!

im really not a fan of any of the other monkey/ape pokemon (except the new one for pokemon sun.. passimian is cute af), but the chimchar line, particularly monferno, has a special place in my heart, and im also a shameless fire-type lover :’)

technically i chose piplup the first time i played diamond (which was my first pokemon game!), but i only chose it at my friends insistence; ive stuck with chimchar in every subsequent playthrough!

It was an honor to work with Studio La Cachette on this incredible short they produced for the upcoming League of Legends tournament, ”Worlds 2016”. Here’s the keys I turned in along with the finished animation completed by their incredible assistance crew. They really fleshed these shots out. Here’s a link to the full VIDEO!
