i enjoy how weird a lot of the combos are- lately, i’ve been randomizing them in sets of 6, and when i see one pair i like, i screencap all six and am obligated to draw the other two pairs on the page as well.
out of these, the first two and the last one are my favorites (god these photos suck but i dont feel like wrestling with the school scanners…)
If Pokespe has taught me anything, it’s “Don’t have dreams, children.”
Ruby’s dream was to learn how to battle alongside his father and to grow up to be like him but due to an accident (caused by Ruby being “just like Dad”) ended up losing
that close relationship with his Dad. His dream ended up turning on him as pretty much everything wrong him now, as well as everything he dislikes about himself, is linked to his similarities to Norman as well as their tattered relationship.
Black’s dream was to win the Pokémon League, which is a goal he worked tirelessly for since he was a small child. He does end up achieving his dream but instead of having everyone acknowledge his victory, it was cut short by the attack on the league. He was also never able to celebrate his accomplishment as he is currently trapped in the light stone. ~It’s kinda more depressing for Black since his arc’s entire theme is “Dreams”~
X’s dream was to be a strong trainer and just like he said, he “didn’t mind telling the whole world about it”. Well, everyone did find out about his skills and ended up swarming him with questions on his future as well as unwanted publicity. His dream ended up severely turning on him leading to his current state of reclusion and what seems to be a severe anxiety/social phobia disorder.
So yeah, don’t have dreams or they will turn on you…badly.
So… I’ve been hooked on the song Ai no Scenario. Gotta love HoneyWorks. Anyways, I really liked this one picture in the song so I drew Gold in the same pose, plus I thought the song was kinda fitting. I hope it turned out well, or at least resembles the original.
Now that you’ve proven yourself worth of at least 8 badges, it’s time for a bigger challenge!
Elite 4 Mariah Carey is ready to battle and test you! Can you handle her and proceed to the next room?
Mariah is a really rich and famous trainer in the Pop Region and specializes in Flying-type Pokémon. A good curiosity is that she’s obsessed with shiny Pokemon, from her Skarmory to her Delibird (afterall, all she wanted for Christmas was him). She didn’t find each one of them in the wild, but I guess money can buy almost everything these days, right?
Her last acquisition was an Alolan Meowth she met while spending her New Year Eve in Alola. Some people say this Meowth got her attention during her concert and that’s why she had some troubles while singing on that day. Well, rumor has it. At least now they belong together.
