31 Days of Pokemon - December 2013

MUCH larger version here.

Created for a Tumblr marathon known as POKEDDEXY. The point was to draw each of your favorite Pokemon of each type, and then some as you'll see down the line. I didn't actually finish it until January, 2014, due to a late start, other obligations, and the fact that a portion of the art actually has some thought in it rather than really fast doodles. Well, of course I was gonna want to use them later, might as well make them at least half-presentable. This picture was created in the style of Pop'n Music/Rhythmic Pop'n.

Patterns from webtreats ETC. Also, inspired by an official piece of PNM promo art, so there's some similarities.

I'm still taken aback by the fact that there's Pokemon beyond Generation III in this picture. Gosh, who'da thunk it? There's also a bit of cosplay for those of you who also revel in obscure Japanese fun n' games, and just for kicks, two extras decided to... Pop'n... for a cameo (who won't be pictured otherwise). :D Not ashamed of that, nope.

December 22nd - Ampharos

A jaunty gait, a hearty laugh, and a luxurious head of long flowing fleece. Ladies and gentlemen, Ampharos is back.

The reason Ampharos was chosen as a favorite Mega Evolution is mostly because it's a concept that is way too new, and it's not like I finished Pokemon Y or even battle enough to care when this picture was made. In fact, the only other Mega Evo I've touched so far was Lucario, and I just don't care about Lucario. Mawile, Kangashkan and Audino could've been considered had I actually reached them (in fact, these days I'm pretty sure Kangashkan or Audino would be my selected choice). It also helped that at the least, Ampharos retained its charm and simplicity to a degree.

I don't recall much about Ampharos, being the Pokemon of the day in Poke Legends, but I think he was a beacon of some sort? That's gonna require me looking it up. What I can say is that he certainly never Mega Evolved. The concept was unheard of back then. Then again, so was any more than 251 Pokemon.

Ampharos is from Poke Legends, whereas the Mega Evolution is mainly hypothetical.
