POKEDDEXY CHALLENGE

Let’s start the new year with Pokémon! I know I’m extremely late with this but oh well.

Day 1: Favorite Bug Type

#637 VOLCARONA

I’m not really fond of the bug type Pokémon although I’m starting to appreciate them. I like Volcarona because it is a pretty and a powerful Pokémon. Also, its name sounds like Corona, which is beer and beer is always good.

Day 8: Favorite Flying Type

#715 NOIVERN

In my teams there is always a ‘starter bird’ but not because I like them, more because I need them. The only starter birds I really like are Swellow and Staraptor and I also like Barviary but that is it. Of course there are other flying types but they never left an amazingly good impression on me.

But now we have Noivern. A giant bat with pretty colors and an awesome looking design. It seems that Nintendo finally figured out how to make bat-like Pokémon really cool instead of fucking annoying. It’s second type is dragon which makes it even more awesome.

Also, it looks like a Kaiju and that on its own should be reason enough to like Noivern.

Day 5: Favorite Fairy Type

#468 TOGEKISS

When I bought Platinum I didn’t know that Togepi could evolve so imagine my surprise when all of the sudden it evolved into a Togetic. It was also surprisingly strong so I kept it with me until the end of the game and I love this Pokémon ever since.

I think I named it Romeo or Amor, not sure.

Day 6: Favorite Fighting Type

#448 LUCARIO

Overall I’m not really a big fan of the Fighting Type Pokémon. Mostly because I think they all look stupid. But I do like Lucario. A lot actually.

These days, Lucario is an important part of almost all my teams. Can’t miss that fighting dog. I often name him Anubis because of his design.

Aura Sphere is also a pretty damn cool move.

I went to the zoo and I drew some Spotted Hyena’s.

The (Spotted) Hyena is easily one of my favorite animals. It is a very misunderstood creature that is actually, when you learn about its behavior, a very fascinating animal. Not to mention that I find them beautiful and elegant in a weird way.

Day 4: Favorite Electric Type

#405 LUXRAY

When I bought Pokemon Platinum after years of not playing the games I was overwhelmed by all the new Pokémon that I never saw or heard about before.

Shinx was one of the first new Pokémon I encountered and also the first Electric Type I caught. It eventually evolved into its final evolution, Luxray. I loved this Pokémon from the beginning and I always try to have one in my team.

(I drew the bottom one first, middle second and top last. The evolution of my insight in Hyena anatomy is clearly visible. They are actually kinda hard to draw. Very weird body structure.)
