SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 13 - Favourite Ice Type: Alolan Ninetales
Because of course. Ninetales is one of my favourite Pokemon in general and I think this variation is among the best (non-joke) Alolan forms. The Ice/Fairy typing came as a surprise but it is very fitting to the concept. I was lucky enough to get an Alolan Vulpix (I Nuzlocked my game) and boy, Alolan Ninetales is strong. It was definitely among the best Pokemon I had.
I like how the dex entry says its fur has frozen crystals in it that boost its defense. That inspired me to think that the longer fur could be partially frozen so it looks like it’s flowy but is rather stiff instead. I also thought that the signature “nine tails” could be just one big poofy tail that is frozen in a way that makes it look like it has several tails. I felt like this kind of approach would be more refreshing. Gotta do something differently every now and then!
