The very first ask I got for the Aqua Bunny All Stars account seemed to ask about the various "amazing creations" of Mrs. Nidorina, and I thought "yeah, I got one more idea in me". I had to put it off for about six months, though, due to the order of AB content priority, but I finally did it. Just goes to show that some questions are gonna take a long time to get around to, I guess.
Nidorino should be used to this by now, you would think.
This is my favorite of this grouping of comics, because it's the most like Poke Tales/Legends. The comic is mostly about Beedrill, Nidorina and Needles are just in it, and the whole "a story for every Pokemon" was the point of the series, afterall. Nidorina couldn't be in more character, here. I also like the shot of the Green Town street. It's minimal, but it shows that this advanced world belongs to these Pokemon.
What works for the gander might not necessarily work for the goose. Nidorina's also very attractive, even if it took her a long time to see that in herself, but Nidorino's usually unfazed by Nidorina's advances. Plus, he just pulled this stunt moments ago, Nidorina. What made you think this would work?
Nidorino, you evil, beautiful man, you. It's been said over and over that Nidorino is really attractive (the most attractive of the Nidorino characters skewing effeminate rather than burly), which aids in Nidorina's obsessive attraction to him. However, leading her on like this, knowing she'll bite and then walking her right into a laser-light slaughter? That's cold. Cold like a laser.
This is perfectly in line with a Poke Tales short. I'm also quite proud of Nidorina's matronly anime look. She looks huggably adorable, if not a little too wide canonically.
This one is weird because Nidorina's out of character in a different way. If this were based on early Poke Tales, when Nidorina was snappier and defensive, then this comic could work. However, Totodile appeared in Legends, and Nidorina mellowed out by this time, realizing the world wasn't out to get her. Her treatment of Psy seems more like early Tales Nidorina, so while it's not beyond the scope of her behavior, it feels like a regression here. Anyway, the point is that what Nidorina's willing to do for her son's childhood and prolonging that innocence is something she would totally do in any era.
Inspired by me observing a chicken wing. That's all it takes.
It's not that Nidorina doesn't have better things to do than await Nidorino's return (or in this case, meet him there), but Nidorino is her favorite person in the world to be with. The heart wants what it wants, man. This is a little OOC in that she'd never leave her children unattended, and if she left them with Nidoran and Nidoran, this would still have been planned earlier and not last minute.
