SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 11 - Favourite Normal Type: Drampa

 A PRECIOUS NORMAL TYPE DRAGON. I have been waiting for one for years and Drampa is just perfect. It looks so gentle and fluffy and lazy. I kinda made a mix of goat, sloth and great anteater here. It’s a neat design, you can do a lot with it. The goat features were the first thing that came to my mind and I personally like the idea of it having a goat face.

SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 21 - Favourite Mega Evolution: Mega Rayqyaza

Okay, it was a bit weird to include Mega Evolutions to this gen’s Pokeddex because there were (fortunately) no new Mega Evolutions. I think it was a wise choice from Nintendo to only have one special form as a theme in this game - the Alolan Pokemon - and focus on that. 

Mega Rayquaza’s design is gorgeous. Some parts of it are still a bit weird to me but overall it is very nice. My favourite Mega Evolution however was done for a Pokeddex challenge a couple of years back so Ray’s not my number one despite everything. 

SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 18 - Favourite Dragon Type: Kommo-o

I fell behind a bit because I decided to make this one larger and more detailed. I felt like Kommo-o really deserved that. I like the design and the concept so much and the entire line is super neat. You don’t always have Pokemon lines of this high quality. Jangmo-o is super cute and it becomes this big fighting badass dragon. What’s not to love?

SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 19 - Favourite Page Rider Pokemon: Tauros

The Page Rider system is one of my favourite mechanics from Sun and Moon. Not only is replacing the HM’s a good thing but the way Nintendo did it is both fun and cute. I love them all but my favourite I definitely Tauros. Nothing like running at the speed of light and smashing everything that gets in the way!

SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 17 - Favourite Rock Type: Lycanroc (Night) 

The concept for this Pokemon is so neat. I actually prefer the day version of the two but I have that in another slot so I drew the night version for favourite Rock type. Lycanroc’s such a cool Pokemon and really good, too. Mine just happened to die in my Sun Nuzlocke. It sucked. 

I wasn’t all that impressed by the Night version’s design at first but it does have its charm. The way the hands are drawn in the original look a bit silly and I’m questioning the floppy ears. I’ve come to terms with the stubby tail, though. But what comes to the main and mainly the fringe, it is weird. And there is an explanation.The dex entry says “ delivers a headbutt, crushing their bones with its rocky mane” which would make it seem like the black part is actually solid, not fur. And in the official art it does look more solid. So, that’s why mine’s a punk unicorn werewolf.
