While running this blog we’ve noticed that the gijinkas we tend to find are often, overall, pretty homogeneous While browsing you’ll probably go through pages and pages of traditionally cute white girls and boys and certain pokemon are quiet obviously more popular than others. And our followers noticed this too! That’s why at their suggestion, we’re extending a challenge to the pokemon gijinka community to show us something different!
Shake up the usual designs and give us some characters of different races and a variety of body types and ages; characters that defy the ideas of “traditionally attractive”. Pick from pokemon that people usually think of as weird, difficult, or even ugly. Create “girly” pokemon as boys, “manly” pokemon as girls, or draw them with any gender or sex in-between (or with none at all).
Below is a list of suggested pokemon to spark some ideas, but don’t let that limit you! The point of this challenge is to work outside the box, so feel free to use whatever pokemon you’d like.
Grimer / Muk
Nosepass / Probopass
Yanma / Yanmega
Ledyba / Ledian
Bidoof / Bibarel
Non-feminine Buneary / Lopunny
Non-feminine Vulpix / Nintales
Non-masculine Machop / Machoke / Machamp
Timburr / Gurdurr / Conkeldurr
Huntail / Gorebyss
Foongus / Amoongus
Once you’re done, feel free to submit your awesome design directly to our blog or just tag it with “pokejinka challenge” and we’ll be sure to reblog it!
I did this for that pokeginka challenge thing. Misdreavus is typically a pretty girly looking pokemon, and I recently caught one in my SoulSilver, who was a boy, and i decided to name him Hank, so–I drew him. :’D
This took way too long to do, my hand is killingmeohgod.
Finally got around to this because of Pokejinka’s design challenge. Look at that doofy buck-toothed grin and that floofy little bun/ponytail thing~ Also you can’t tell due to his stance, but he has a fair bit of hips, like respective pokemon form.
I wanted to submit this for the little challenge thing going on right now. I always thought heatran was more of a masculine pokemon, so I drew out this female one instead while I was doing the pokemon challenge. I thought it applied well?
