PokeFebChallenge Day 1: Draw a Pokemon Pair!

Decided to go with the Sawk and Throh brother duo, Chip and Grom!!
These two brothers hated fighting, however due to Grom’s shiny status trainers were always attempting to snag the rare pokemon. Chip conceded to a life of battling to fend off trainers for his brother.

Eventually they bother were able to meet with a sympathetic trainer who helped them pursue their own passions.

anonymous asked:

How do human like Pokémon like gardevoir and medicham sleep? Do they need a human bed? Or can they curl up like eevees and other Pokémon do?

They sleep very much like humans, anonymous. That is to say, they don’t curl up but rather lie down wherever they can. However, they don’t necessarily need special beds. Oftentimes, they’re content enough to sleep on whatever soft surface you have at the ready, including a couch, a cot, blankets on the floor, the ground itself, trees (in the case of the more … unusual sorts of fighting- and grass-types), or in very rare cases, your bed. Of course, many trainers still like to offer a simple bed to their pokémon anyway, although this isn’t always feasible for every trainer.

As a separate note, regardless of what less scrupulous blogs may have you believe, pokémon such as gardevoir, lopunny, and so forth are not the pokémon I was referring to when I said some human-like pokémon enjoy sleeping in the same bed as their trainers. (In fact, gardevoir especially prefer sleeping spaces as far from their trainers as possible, due to their inherent psychic abilities.) Rather, I was referring to sawk, throh, mr. mime, elgyem and beheeyem, and members of the machop line (but especially machamp).

Furthermore, I would not advise sharing a bed with a machamp. I will let your imaginations come up with the reason why.

Pokémon in our Biomes pt. 7: Alpines and Mountains

I’ve recently decided to make a series of posts with hypothetical thinking and analyzing of what Pokémon species could potentially be found in the world’s biomes. Not at all relative to the games, I will be focusing primarily of the elements, design, and relativity to real life flora and fauna of Pokémon to depict where different species would roam on our big blue marble.

I apologize in advance that it has taken so long for this post, I recently got an awesome serving job that I have kind of dedicating myself to. Nonetheless, here it is! Sorry to keep you all waiting!

This Pokémon in our biomes post will be on alpines and mountains. I actually get this one requested fairly often, so I’m excited to finally have the chance to get this one rolling. However, this one is going to be particularly tricky because generally, alpines can be very cold and dry near the summit, with tons of snow, but as you ascend a mountain you tend to cross several types of biomes like steppes, forests, grasslands, etc. Usually alpines are considered at elevations of 10,000 feet or higher, and different mountain ranges have different climates and environments. For example, the Himalayan mountains are very cold because of it’s extremely high altitude, the Andes are a bit warmer because they are closer to the equator and have plenty of grassland space, and the Rockies have a very random weather pattern, but also a beautiful scenery with tons of coniferous forests. For all intensive purposes, I will be trying to focus mainly on the typical cold, rocky, sharp, thin air mountain ranges.

I was going to include caves in this post as well, but it wouldn’t necessarily make sense if there were caves, say, around the cliffs by a sea, or even at ground level at the side of a mountain, and I even guess a tunnel still technically is a cave. Ecologically speaking caves aren’t a whole biome, but I may have to make an exception because I doubt you’d see Zubats or Digletts way up in the Rockies. 

Let’s get started!
