Aqua Bunny: 13th Year Anniversary

lol well that didn't happen, now did it? 365 days later, and I'm still working on getting the new website ready. It feels like moving from one big house to another, but by yourself. There's so much stuff that you didn't realize you had that you have to pack up, and it takes forever because you don't have any friends or family to lend a hand or the funds to get some movers to assist you. On the other hand, oh, and the analogy is over, btw, it brings to the forefront just how much content this site has if it takes THIS long to move it all over. I'm not happy about having to leave the site dormant for months but being able to reflect on things as I'm reposting pictures in the new site's pages, with TAGS (hallelujah), gives me sort of a warm feeling. Well, I'll just keep doing what I can, huh?

December 19th - Bubbles and Shockette La'Vee

Possibly the earliest characters to have a surname. I tend to get "the meh" in regards to the Eevee line generically speaking, so it's fortunate that I still have an attachment to long established Eeveeon characters long before the family's popularity exploded and my interest dwindled. My favorite Eeveeon, however, fluctuates between these two because of these two. I can't really choose who I like more sometimes, but the edge is almost always in favor of Shockette, whom I adore way too much. But who cares! It's two for the price of one. Funnily enough, my very first favorite was Flareon, and by extension, Rosie.

Not much to say here that I haven't gone into detail about before. Bubbles is the least girly-girl of the girly-girls and most artsy, Shockette has a Tsundere thing going (not on the cliched end, but she still runs hot and cold in a wild, then down-to-earth way. She has no love interests). Rosie, unpictured, is conceited but in an oblivious means-no-harm way, and cares a lot for her sisters. Joy, also unpictured, is sassy and the odd man out. All of 'em (cept Joy, being a child) are pretty girls, but aren't out to capitalize on that despite the fact that they very well could. They're basically anti-spoiled girls, despite being spoiled girls.

The Eevee Sisters (La'Vee Siblings) are from Poke Tales.

December 18th - Mama and Baby Horsea

Like Vulpix and Nidorina, Horsea has had the title of favorite water type for years. I just don't draw them often. These two aren't really main characters, but are a good example of what Poke Tales was known for, which is to provide a story for all Pokemon, even if this placed them into One-Off status. The Horseas show up more than once, but they didn't do anything you haven't seen Nidorina do with her children, just under the sea and a with a lot more danger.

Mama and Baby Horsea are from Poke Tales.

December 17th - Mona

It's pretty funny that long after I grew out of the Kirlia-Mawile shtick from the early Creative Worlds era that my favorite Psychic and Steel types would still be Kirlia and Mawile. Admittedly, they're hard to top in terms of cuteness and design accessibility and familiarity (Kirlia is simpler than Gardevoir, but is more identifiable as humanlike than Ralts). I'm not even sure Mawile as a species have many rivals in the world of cute Steel types. I guess that's why adding Fairy as a secondary type just made sense, because it was sort of the outlier

The less said about Mona, the better. As I've written before, Mona isn't a Pokemon, she's a doggone experience. She'll fill your life with excitement, but that's usually followed by regret and/or remorse... and possibly a lot of apologizing.

Mona is from Chibi's Corner.

December 16th - Dwebble

Not much to say other than the fact that I like it because it's like a Parasect lite. Also, this Dwebble is female, but one of the very few without tertiary sexual characteristics.Not that it matters, considering the comic she was going to appear in was canned before it even started. However, she was inspired by the Pokemon of the same name in my copy of Pokemon Y.

December 15th - Kali

When the extraordinary has become routine and eccentrics are commonplace, you run out of cares to give. Therefore, Kali's probably the most stable character or the series, and definitely a person you want to stick with considering how odd everyone else tends to be. Granted, BaBeat isn't known for it's stability and everyone is aware that reality can change at a moment's notice, but that doesn't mean people don't still freak out over it. Kali's reached a point now where she's just... seen it all.

Kali is from Chibi's Corner.

December 14th - Nidorino Eto

Yeah yeah we all know about Nidorino already. Just let him sleep. What I can say is that, like Vulpix, he's maturing as well, though the changes are more sudden than gradual. Also picked for favorite Poison because I had better slots in mind for other Nidos. Since I've worked with Nidorino(s) much longer than Nidoran Male, Nidorino happened to get the top billing between them.

Nidorino is from Alternate Universe, and is also inspired by the Pokemon of the same name from my copy of Pokemon Silver.

December 13th - Miltank Kobayashi

Milk and pixels, as it were. Miltank's rather deceptively charming. She's a rather patient and positive character outmatched by Espeon (granted, Espeon is, uh, "special"...), and she's smarter than she looks or even acts. It's hard to make her upset, and even harder to make her angry, despite Kine's never-ending onslaught of verbal abuse and Chikorita's less than kind attitude towards her. Like Kine and Nidorina alike, Miltank tends to take a moral path unlike Nidorino and Sentret.

Miltank is from Alternate Universe, and is also inspired by the Pokemon of the same name from my copy of Pokemon Silver.

December 12th - Lapras

I really can't think of any other Ice type I like more than Lapras, who even then comes across as more Water. Lapras seems to suffer from loneliness. Coming from a series where Pokemon are largely creatures of habit, they see this giant sea monster and keep their distance, making up rumors and tall tales rather than, you know, actually talking to her. That's pretty rough, wouldn't it be nicer if more people talked to you than about you (positive or not)? She treasures all the genuine friends she makes.

Lapras is from Poke Island.

December 11th - Nok-Nok

It's the comically large head that makes him adorable. Nok-Nok can't say anything other than "Nok-Nok", which is why he's called that (also a diminutive of Nuckrar. Many of the Chibis have names borrowed from the Japanese originals vs. the English localizations). He's a lot smarter than he looks, but nobody takes him seriously because he can't articulate.

Nok-Nok is from Chibi's Corner.

December 10th - Lilia

Oh hey I haven't seen you in a while. She's certainly brimming with optimism and positive energy, which might be considered refreshing compared to other Chikorita characters outside of Chicolita. Perhaps because this is one case of the game writing the character for me?

Here's some useless trivia. Did you know that, if we're not counting Diary of a Gamer Girl, there's at least one Chikorita in each series? This is being generous and including Happa the slime-Chikorita from Chibi's Corner. Even Vulpix doesn't have this track record and I like Vulpix way more.

Lilia hails from Carmela: ¡Alcance las Estrellas! and is inspired by the Chikorita of the same name from my copy of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team.

December 9th - Haunter

Haunter barely holds the title of favorite Ghost, as I may have discovered his replacement in Pokemon Y after this was drawn. However, like Goodra, character familiarity is necessary. It's also funny that Haunter has this really cocksure look on his face, but hasn't visibly won Death Reaper JOE any battles. That being said, he's his next most reliable Pokemon, second only to Misdreavus in that she actually has power to back her loyalty. The rest of them have personality quirks or ego issues that get in the way.

Haunter is from Alternate Universe.

December 8th - Fletchling

Most of the small birds are cute, and that's good enough for me, but Fletching takes it to a whole other level, especially with that beautiful chirp. I didn't want to evolve mine, but life goes on, you know? If I had made that Pokemon X/Y based comic, this Fletchling would have been a minor character, I could've drawn any of the siblings, really. Fletchinder would've been more important, but Fletchling still wins out as a Pokemon in general. At this time, there's no plans to use any of the Fletchling line anymore.

December 7th - Vulpix Anderson

In a move that surprises no one, I reveal my favorite Fire type to be Vulpix. Add Vulpix to the list of Pokemon that I've loved for as long as they existed. Vulpix starts off in the series as just the Cute Kid, but like Eevee and Joy in Poke Tales through Legends, you can noticeably tell her growing older, even within the series' floating timeline (very few characters in AU canonically age). Either way, she remains very stable, but knows how to just be a kid and have some fun while that ride lasts. Like Nidorina, she's known for having several hairstyles because if you've got it, flaunt it.

Vulpix is from Alternate Universe, and is also inspired by the Pokemon of the same name from my copy of Pokemon Silver.

December 6th - Hitmontop Ishida

"If I don't keep up with my training, my Trainer is going to haunt me in my sleep..." Hitmontop is mostly a background character, but he's a nice guy otherwise, and pretty loyal to Son of Nightmare. All of SoN's Pokemon are close to him because he takes Pokemon training seriously, maybe too much so at times.

Hitmontop is from Alternate Universe.

December 5th - Chanel Pelletier

The last time I saw a Pokemon for the first time and declared it mine had to be Kirlia back in the 3rd generation. Well, Aromatisse was that for the 6th. I tend to have a thing with faving Pokemon the majority ignores, though. I sure know how to pick 'em, but to that end, it just makes me feel that much better about working them out to an interesting degree. Everyone and their mom has an Umbreon character, how can you stand out? Favorite Fairy by and large, and she kicks some butt too.

Chanel's a small town girl looking to make a name for herself as one of Paris's youngest up and coming showgirls. Not the burlesque kind, you. More like a Radio City Rockette. She can sing, she can dance, she can act and she can perform magic! Alas, no one cares. But hey, well that's life too~.

Chanel has yet to appear in any tangible work, but I do hold out the hope that she will, at least to the degree of Lisa Berkley. Currently, she is inspired by the Aromatisse of the same name in my copy of Pokemon Y.

December 4th - Anabelle

It's weird that both Flaaffy and Ampharos are on this list. Ampharos is more of a technicality which I'll explain later. Right now, let's talk Flaaffy. Of all electric types, Flaaffy has been my favorite hands down probably forever. It's kinda plump though, which if anything helps it's case for cuteness. Anabelle is a woman of southern charm and generosity, despite not having much. She's another one of those domesticated types in a wild world, like a lot of the Poke Forest regulars. A diamond in the rough, if you will.

Anabelle is from Poke Legends.

December 3rd - Dragonite

The cuter dragons of the series I like. Dratini and Goomy's family are all neat, and so is Flygon (I forget if Vibrava's a dragon, and Trapinch certainly isn't, but he counts as a favorite elsewhere). However, familiarity makes me side with Dragonite, whereas a newcomer like Goodra, who for all intents and purposes is even cuter (a cuter fully realized dragon than Dragonite? And people thought Dragonite was as twee as it was gonna get), doesn't get the bill because I'm just not familiar enough with it. Needs more character attachment, that Goodra.

This Dragonite is rather run of the mill, laid back and easy going like a beach bum. However, you'll find he has the fortitude and smarts of an archaeologist and adept treasure hunter when it comes to learning about who he is as a "dragon".

Dragonite is from Poke Island.
