fave pokemon

I just learned yesterday that Pikachu, my favorite Pokemon, was originally designed not by Ken Sugimori (he only finalized the design), but by a female graphic designer named Atsuko Nishida. 

Also after googling her, I found out that she’s also designed Sylveon–another favorite PKMN of mine. She’s also illustrated some very pretty Pokemon cards!!

Thank you Ms. Nishida! :-) May you get more credit and love for your contribution to the Pokemon franchise.


“Disturb not the harmony of fire, ice or lightning,
lest these titans wreak destruction upon the world in which they clash.
Though the water’s great guardian shall arise to quell the fighting,
alone its song will fail, and thus the Earth shall turn to ash.
O Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all three.
Their treasures combined tame the Beast of the Sea.”
Pokémon the Movie: Revelation Lugia, 1999


According to a recent study by Professor Cedar, Vaporeon has the capability undergo variant evolutions tied to its environment.

This is speculated to be due to the highly volatile nature of Eevee DNA and the evolutionary tactic of extreme adaptability all Eevee possess. To adapt expertly to climate and environment upon evolution, the pre-evolution Eevee will adopt aspects of other residing species of pokemon, ensuring an incredibly high survival rate.

The standard Vaporeon variant occurs if the Eevee has not resided in a particular environment for an extended time, or in heavily populated human city centres.

He basically gave me full creative freedom, so thank you for that! and thank you for being patient!

Also, I had completely forgotten how hard Rayquaza was to draw, woops

Plus, I went a bit overboard and made a coloured/backgrounded version because I’ve been itching to try certain techniques.
