First picture here! And it's a Pokemon piece! Been playing Pokemon Black and White religiously and.. well, makes me kinda miss the old Pokemon - the original 151.

I dunno, after the legendary Heart Gold and Soul Silver, Black and white proved disappointing in terms of the monsters. The system is awesome and the graphics are stunning, but let's face it, we play Pokemon to choose and create our own team of beautiful and strong Pokemon.. and in the new collection, we're simply choosing from what's less ugly.

Who else here thinks that Sugimori Ken simply walked into a kindergarten classroom and just ripped out 100 kids scribbles and made pokemon out of those?

Anyways, enjoy the piece!! It's Kasumi (Misty in USA) and her Togetic!

[REVAMPED! + ] Yep, I'm going to use "+" to signify pictures I revamp in the future. It'll be like my symbol of update :P Spent many hours tweaking lighting and colors, and totally cleaned up everything. I completely updated the picture this time, took DAYS. I was embarrassed for having you guys see the previous unclean version. Here's the result of the weeks hard work! Hope you like it~!

I totally agree about your description. Kanto and Jotho had awesome Pokemon, Hoenn has acceptable ones, Sinnoh has bad ones and Unova has horrible ones.

Great drawing!

thank you very much! :D haha yehh, there's a FEW good ones in Unova... but nothing really extraordinary :( heck, even Tentacool looks cool compare to Unova stuff D=

Yes! Unova sucks! The writers just used Fakemon made up by mentally retarded five year old kids...

I don't acknowledge Gen V as Pokemon, I see them as Fakemon... The same applies to Gen IV (but V is worse).

Gen I and II are the best...

:iconbutterfreeplz: is much better than :iconsnivyplz: !

Nice draw here. :D

Misty and her Togetic look sooo adorable. :love:

Gen 1, 2, & 3 are my fav Pokemon! Gen 4 & 5 are okeyish... :/ It just appears that gen 4 & 5 are running out of designs for Pokemon XD I mean C'mon an Ice Cream Pokemon? WTF?!

the final form of the icecream? ah. i like the first form more... but sigh, gotta evolve them if i want them to be strong :(

BlueySerperior Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yup, true....

My other Gen 5 Fav is Reuniclus. Such a cool looking Kick-A$$ Pokemon :D
Only thing that sucks about it is its low speed of 30... :( But its Special Attack, HP, And Defense Stats are ALL goodd. :)

CatMD Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
heyy Reuniclus is one of my main team for B/W~ xD one of the rare cute looking pokemon~ I like Cinccino too cus i use to have pet chinchillas~ but Cinccino is too weak to be a battle pokemon > <;;

BlueySerperior Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Awesome :D Serperior & Audino are also my favs too. I'm a HUGE Pikachu and Serperior FAN as seen in my gallery! XD

Cinncino is pretty awesome and cute as well. But its limited elemental moveset compared to Audino and other Normal Pokemon is a downside... :( Audino is my fav Normal type Gen 5 Pokemon. :D

My B/W Team

Serperior Lv. 81- Leaf Blade, Magical Leaf, Energy Ball, & Leaf Tornado

Emolga Lv. 77- Thunderbolt, Spark, Aerial Ace, & Wild Charge

Audino Lv. 77- Blizzard, Flamethrower, Shadow Ball, & Psychic

Semipour Lv. 77- Ice Beam, Crunch, Aqua Tail, & Scald

Mienshao Lv. 77- Fake Out, Poison Jab, Brick Break, & Drain Punch

Krookodile Lv. 77- Earthquake, Bite, Crunch, & Dig

In my White Team, my team is all the same except my Reuniclus replaces my Semipour & my Audino knows both Blizzard & Ice Beam.

Reuniclus Lv. 77- Psychic, Shadow Ball, Energy Ball, & Flash Cannon

Audino Lv. 77- Blizzard, Ice Beam, Flamethrower, & Shadow Ball

Honestly though, I like most of the pokemon in B/W. Especially Deino :iconicameplz:

xD fair enough... I guess when I said "all" of them were disappointing, I was referring to the final forms of the Pokemon (which really, is ultimately what we'll end up using in battles with people). Deino's cute, but once it evolves :( but they look so cool in pokedex3D though *_*

I don't really like what I've seen of the 5th Generation designs either :/ I just bought Pokemon Black, and have yet to start to play it, but I have seen the new pokemon and miss the original 151 more and more :(

I still loooove me some Pokemon tho!!! :pokeball:

Not all of them are bad, i like the new dragons as well as the new bug pokemon and the new fighting pokemon. Zoroark is cool so is victini.

agreed~ :( but gotta admit, most of them were a real letdown.. I mean each specie of pokemon used to be so unique, each with its own distinct characteristics and all.

I kind of agree with you on the Pokemon thing, but only a few of them seem decent to me. I just love the face that after getting through the first part of the story you can get all the others. I think my favorite in Black/White is Zorua and Zoroark (they kinda look like Digimon almost lol)...

Other than that tidbit, I adore this piece! It's like Togetic wants to come out and nuzzle me! ^^ The Pidgey in the background are in great detail as well. Nicely done!

I agree the new Pokemon left much to be desired. A few are okay, but compared to the old ones, well they're just not nearly as good. The original 151 were the best and so cute. I really love them and you did such an amazing job on this. :D

i think ice/bug type may be too powerful. The resistance they'll cover will be pretty large. *__* Then again, Durant already fills that role of many resistance
