Behold: this year’s summer contest entry! And boy it was a doozy. I redid everything once the infamous trailer was released, the game hit the shelves, and, well….you know the rest. It was important for me to keep this entry as good-natured as possible, for all of the Mega Man fans and MN9 backers. It’s been a rough summer for some of you! If this entry cheered anyone up, then I did my job.
So I guess I’m kinda late to the whole “draw other pokemon in the cosplay pikachu outfits thing”, so here’s like a bunch of it, (albeit with different color palettes). This series took a while but I’m happy with how it all turned out.
our young couple call their homes to tell them that they got engaged! may’s family and drew’s grandmother and cousin (whose designs i took from the game im so sorry. the female ace trainer is the cousin bc ace trainer drew lmao) prepare their houses for their visit!
for contestshipping week 2016! day 3: meeting the family
When I last visited home, I found some neat old drawings I did when I was a kid, so I’ve been having some fun redrawing them. These are from the very late 80s and/or the very early 90s. Most of them were villains for a Go-Rama video game that was essentially a ripoff of Super Mario Bros 2. Skull-Man was definitely a proposed Robot Master. I don’t know if this was for the Nintendo Power Mega Man contest or not. It’s probably too old to be that.
With ORAS Chapters of PokeSpe officially confirmed, I got excited and wrote out a list of speculations and thoughts on things. Definitely things I coud see or hope they aim for.
Mega Blaziken with Sapphire please. Her strength, behavior and prowess obviously makes a Mega Pokemon an attractive option. Mega Chic all the way for me. I originally wasn’t a lover of M-Blaziken and I still am not because of how super stupidly OP it is, but seeing it under the control of Sapphire would slay.
Mega Gardevoir is something I think that would fit Ruby fantastically but with Diantha already having recently debuted it as her ace-in-the-hole I think the more likely option is Mega Swampert. I think it might work the best solely because of how much it contrast with Ruby? Ruby is a classy, avid contest fanatic. Mega Swampert is a large burly mudfish, Ruby originally was pretty unaccepting of the Pokemon. Given that a bond is required to trigger Mega Evolution and Gold and Togebo’s bond came in center focus last remake chapters in HGSS as well as Gold and Red questioning themselves as trainers and developing from it in their respective remake chapter arcs. I could see this being Ruby’s time to shine that area. Mega Swampert could be a big part of it.
RuSa’s relationship. I think Franticshipping is better at its current stage, being focused on but not being overly focused on. Meanwhile they can focus on the characterization, story progression and development and things of that nature, one of my main issues with most media is gratuitous shipping so Franticshipping being relevant in a distinct yet distant sense that makes it so much fun to read and see is the fitting route for me. Just more development and maybe a more formal confession once we’re good and into the story. I think the past RS chapters handled this fantastically and I have not one complaint about it.
Where’s Wally? But in all seriousness, bring Wally back. Can Wally please be ORAS-styled? PLEASE. I really like his new design and Mega Gallade. PokeSpe is the only story where I liked Wally and his small character arc. a lot. I was excited to see him at focus for his brief period, shame he got retconned from the 3rd Dex Holder of Hoenn role by Emerald. Rald’s alright though, I guess. He returned Rara to Ruby but I’m hoping that Norman comes by him and takes him to catch another Pokemon for his team, he could just ended up catching his own Ralts that reminds him of Ruby’s old Kirlia. (They later Mega Evolve together)
Zinnia = connection to Salamence? Maybe? Maybe she will have caught and tamed it. RuSa deal with their past turmoil with the Pokemon?
Super Secret Base Expert, Aarune, meeting Sapphire who has a Secret Base. Flygon versus Mega Aggron perhaps? Sapphire’s Pokemon have pretty weak characterization so I hope that’s expanded on.
Contest Idol Lisia meeting Ruby too would do wonders, she mega evolves her beautiful Altaria for Ruby to swoon over. Maybe also teach Ruby about the beauty of Mega Evolution? Which makes him reflect on his past bond and treatment of Pokemon like his Milotic.
Emerald using Mega Sceptile, not really a huge Emerald fan but it seems obvious. I did like him when he showed his weaker side and his scene with Sceptile busting out of the ice Pokemon-amie style to win him the match never ceases to make me smile. Plus his bond and likeness toward Pokemon was a huge part of his CD.
“But X is the Mega Evolver!111” It’s okay in my book. X’s title could still be the Mega Evolver. He could have a hidden talent in Mega Evolving that other trainers lack. Sort of like Blue and how her “Evolving” is more special than other trainer’s.
