♥ I finally managed to draw something to celebrate 20 years of Pokémon! A little tribute to the games that started it all :) and their gym leaders <3 but expect more Kanto trainers (or NPCs) soon! :D I hope so at least *cough*

Pokemon Ruby was my first Pokemon Game & Gen 3 will always be close to my heart (ORAS were amazing remakes). That said, Pokemon Sun and Moon were absolutely phenomenal!! Thank you Pokemon for the incredible experience and an amazing character!!!
Lillie is, in my opinion, the best companion we’ve ever had in the Pokemon Series!! ❤️

my friend bo does pokemon playthroughs on his youtube channel (which you should watch!) and he and i started playing platinum the other day - i made him name our player jolyne and our rival dio lol

he asked me for a banner for the videos and these are the first images i came up with.. our turtwig is named stone free B)

Remember that alternate forms pokemon meme? remember it was soon replaced with the crossbreed pokemon meme? well, by the time those memes were hot on the internet I had no computer or scanner, and I had this Idea sitting there, but by the time I recovered my scanner the meme was no longer that relevant. However, thanks to pokemon sun and moon coming soon and thanks to some first gen pokemons having alternative “alola” forms, I think it was time I finally made this thing

I always tought it would be fun to se how different climates will affect a torterra’s shell garden, knowing the same plants dont grow in different ecosystems, and maybe crossing a torterra with different grass pokemon will make them suitable for their respective climates as seen in the picture

The first two are the most tropical ideas I had, one based on a tropical Island like hawaii and the other based on a rainforest or jungle, I know the moai heads are found on an Island too but please just coup with me a little

The third one is a frozen forest, this seemed to fit since off the 5 pokemons with alola forms, 4 are now Ice types, I asume we will be getting an island with snowe mountains and such

The fourth is based on a garden pond, it seems there will be a more asian inspired island, and all I could think about where japanese gardens, and even when we all see ludicolo as a mexican dancing tree, it is designed after lilypads and kappas, the latest being japanese not mexican

and thats pretty much it, I has been wanting to make this for a long time but couldnt find the inspiration to, until now
