I quite liked this one, enough to do an image ID search to find out where it came from. Here is that source.

He then explains that while Oak retired from being a Pokémon Trainer and went into research and Agatha stayed on the path of the trainer and eventually became a member of the Elite Four -- and not just any member, but its leader -- both made a name for themselves known to everybody in the land, and that "even though the paths they chose were different, they were still rivals."

I could easily see a Pokémon prequel anime (not done by ShoPro ^^;; and not written for tots ) kicking major, major ass. Young Oak. Young Agatha. Young Blaine. Young Kurt. And importantly, a bunch of new characters and things to do. No need to tie everything in to the existing character base or the adventures of Ash & Co. (In fact, doing that would be stupid. Some tie-ins are nice. Not excessively many.)

For more by that artist, try here.

I didn't realize that the picture might be taking place in the past until you brought it up, but I think you're absolutely right. The Riolu is likely Cynthia's Lucario; the Munna, Caitlin's Musharna. The Pichu and the Meowth, God only knows what's up with them. But yeah, it seems likely that this is a flashback picture.

Was checking Souji's Pixiv account again to see if he'd uploaded anything new. Then I noticed he had a Twitpic account listed in his Pixiv profile. So I clicked it to see if there was anything there worth reading or seeing ... and I discovered that he posts a ton of rough sketches there that, for whatever reason, he chooses not to upload to his Pixiv account. Below are some of the particularly nice ones I found, but you can shop around for yourself by clicking this link.

Spoiler: show


(While the game has been out for several months at this point, I guess I should warn, BW2 spoilers inside, so don't click if you still haven't beaten the game's Story Mode and you care about plot spoilers.)
Spoiler: show




You can even see his rough sketch of the Cynthia & Caitlin picture I shared a few weeks ago. Anyway, there's a lot of great stuff in there beyond what I included above -- pictures of champions, gym leaders, villains, you name it -- but like I encouraged, if you like what you see above, check out his Twitpic account yourself and shop around. Only a few of these works have Pixiv-account equivalents, but it's worth your time to double-check his Pixiv library of works because anything he has on Pixiv is much, much higher resolution than even the alleged "full size" versions of the pictures on Twitpic.

Magcargo is also pretty sweet.
He has added more to this since I last looked at it, including an entry on Froakie.

Via Pixiv, I found an Australian Pokémon fan artist named Namie. Here is her Tumblr, which seems to have much more of her work than her Pixiv account does. Her artwork strikes me as very fun, coming from a very fun person. *shrug* Some samples below.

Spoiler: show








Of course she would be a combination Pokémon+Touhou fan.







Not sure how to feel about her after "sugoi hands" but ....

Seriously? That's awesome! What a small world. That makes me want to actually reach out to this girl all the more and tell her how awesome her art is.

So, I was looking for Mankey fanart for one of our newest members when I happened to find this guy's Pixiv account. He's done a lot of cute simple drawings of many Pokémon, like ...

Check out his page to see more.

Hah, the Mankey is just so derpy jumping in the air like that. The Weezing isn't half bad either with those expressions.

Looking at these pictures reminds me that I sorta draw too. Maybe I should post some of my art sometime...

Looking for an old sig of mine, I discovered that I upload a boatload of Pokémon fanart from 2010 or so to my Photobucket account. Here are just a few of them that I'm not sure if I shared before:

"It was a critical hit! Bayleef was knocked out!"


"Come/Go now, to adventure!"

So when I did my Google Image search for "master chief crying" for this post and turned up this picture, several rows down was one of the freakiest "real live Pokémon" pieces of fanart I've ever seen. It's of Duskull. Viewer discretion advised? (Blood and grim fanatics, eat your hearts out? ^^; )

I genuinely shat myself when I saw that picture. It really shows how devastating Pokemon could be in real life.

Another picture, it's rather large so I'll leave the link. It's XY-related so you have been warned:

I found this on reddit today as a take on the Gentleman class of trainer and thought it was a nice piece of work.

The one of the bottom left makes me think of Kayneth Archibald of Fate/Zero. Too bad he never realized how loyal Lancer was.
