I just bought an iPhone case with his Magikarp art on it not too long ago.

Just found this guy on DA. He's got a four-page folder of Pokemon art and it's all pretty cool. There are some Gen VI Pokemon featured, but it is less than five pictures.

This one is my particular favorite:

Found this artist who has loads of very cute pokemon gijinkas!

They're all very nicely made, so I can't pick a favorite one ;;

First, that's not the artist's page. I can't be sure this one is either since it looks a lot different from the one I remember, but yeah. You've just linked to someone's PhotoBucket account. Which is definitely not the original artist's page. ^^;;

Second, if you're only just now discovering this artist's work, well cool! But just so you know, I accredit this artist with single-handedly popularizing Pokémon gijinjka in the West some five or six years ago. For many fans, his was the first set of images they saw which sought to anthropomorphize the entire Pokédex, and it's someone we on UPN discovered back around 2007 or 2008. I can't seem to find the proof super duper easily, but I can show you this:But cool that you've discovered it and that you're re-sharing it with a new generation of UPNers. I'm glad. I've still got that artist's work up on my wall. His is still probably my favorite Pokédex ginjinka set of images, even if (like pretty much everyone's) it's hit or miss.

As you can probably tell, my favorite one that the artist did was the Ampharos one (which I've used as my centerpiece in that one collage). I just love the personality brimming forth from both of the characters in it. Which one is your favorite? You say you've had a hard time picking, but I see you managed to select at least one to be your own current avatar ... ;o

Oh wow, that's awesome. I found the artist's work by searching for Gligar gijinka, and boom! (Hi Abra :P)

As for a favorite, I don't have one, but I especially like the castform (water) and the shelgon. Ampharos's face as he's being hugged by the girl is definitely something I enjoy when I look through the album. And of course, the gligar.

I think the last time that artist was found spawned a wave of gijinka avatars too.

The only reason I didn't join in was because there's no Relicanth, thereby invalidating the entire collection.

I recall Kindrindra and swampert28 having an ill-fated, short-lived experiment where one of them was going to start at the very beginning of the Sinnohdex while the other one was going to start at the very end of the Sinnohdex and bit by bit they'd work their way towards the center, each time exchanging out for a new avatar made from this guy's gijinkas. So they started off with Kind claiming the upper end (figures ) and gnabbing Arceus for himself while swampy grumpily took Bulbasaur ... then they made their way to the Ivysaur level ... then I think swampy was like "fuck this shit I don't want a fat woman for my avatar" [/fat chicks need lovin' too] and skipped straight over Venusaur and went on to the Charmander line ... and I think that's as far as they ever got. Somewhere in the Charmander line, be it Charmeleon or Charizard I don't really remember nor care. The point being, they never made it post #006.

When I had my Abra avatar, no one else was doing gijinka avatars. A, I remember having to push for the gijinka thing a little bit back then. (People were pretty resistent to the idea of Pokemon anthropomorphized fanart at first, as I recall!) And B, I abhor and have always abhored the whole herd mentality "baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, we must all use the same sort of avatar as one another, baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah~!" that half of all Internet communities seem to always suffer.

Ah, yeah, I remember that, though that was with a different artist. I've always far preferred the artwork of the one that's being discussed now, but I could never find a full collection.

On the topic of me and swampy's experiment, that dying was actually my fault- we were supposed to switch avys every week, and then my activity started... Waning. Also my computer of the time was utterly incapable of handling the source image, and swampy (bless his heart) eventually started separating the gijinkas for me and sending them to me. But, despite his best efforts, I still ended up dragging it down into oblivion. I think the farthest I got was Phione? (And then just happily sat there for a while because having a cute and non-sexualized avatar was just fine with me)

I'm sure anyone who has seen ungodly long title will think of this the very instant you first see the Hex Maniac. Atleast Mokkochi was the first character who came to mind for me when I saw her.

Also, this was amusing. I couldn't read it, but the pictures should pretty well explain what's going on.

For those wondering, it's the script for the Attract effect in Japanese, so it'd be roughly "Garchomp is in love with Charizard!"

Forgot all about that until just now. (I hadn't been on a computer when I first saw bbb's post.) Just loaded the comic thanks to Jeri's bump and ... yeah, like you say, bbb, I think you can figure out what's going on even without speaking the language. All the same ...

Spoiler: show
Page 03
Garchomp: I love you! Let's get it on! (Lit: "Please make out with me!" but going for English equivalent context here)
Charizard: NO . WAY!

Charizard: Calm down! Will you listen for just a moment?
Garchomp: Huh? What is it?

Charizard: I'M A GUY! I'M NOT A GIRL! DO YOU UNDERSTAND!? DO YOU UNDERSTAND!? (Note: that second one's in Engrish. "Dyuu yuu andastan!?")

Garchomp: I get it, I get it! More importantly, let's get it on!
Charizard: YOU DON'T GET IT!

Page 04
Garchomp: What're your three sizes? (Note: Japanese reference to bust, waist, and hip measurements, typically of women.) Have you done it before? Goin' out with anyone right now? Hey, hey!

*NOTE*: He's got a Mega Stone.
Charizard: DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA SHUT UP!

Charizard: {Finally,} you've calmed down ... What? Are ya scared?
Garchomp: You're so hot.

Page 05
Garchomp: I'll Mega Evolve too.
Charizard: Ye-OWW!

Page 06
Garchomp: I love you ... "my sweet honey" ...
Charizard: Shut up. (Note: More literally it'd be along the lines of "God you're annoying" but we're going for cultural context here.)
*NOTE*: It's not going in!

Just the one thing I can't quite make out -- Garchomp's (what appears to be) 話ってんな on the bottom of Page 04, with "ってんな" being something I can honestly say I have never seen before now but, if I had to guess, is some crude amalgam of speech って and そんな (with the そ dropped). Even still, it doesn't make sense to me that Garchomp would be taking us all the way back to Charizard's 話 from Page 03 (when he asked Garchomp to calm down and listen to what he had to say). If we go with that, it'd be like, "Oh! So this is what you were trying to tell me ..." or something. Still, that's only a guess. Everything else, not so much.

There are other ways you can put avatar themes. Certainly if you went to Halloween with your friends as Dorothy, Toto, Lion, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Wizard, and the witches, you wouldn't call that herd mentality. UPN is a little closer than a herd of "sheeple."

If Serebii or 4chan did a "STUNFISK AVATAR EVERYONE GO" (here you can probably tell i don't know pretty much anything about 4chan) then it would be MUCH different because there's a lot stronger conformity pressure and groupthink. UPN is more like Halloween costumes you wear every day and can change at any time.

Though I would find it hilarious if everyone had their avatar be their "spirit pokemon" doing what my avatar is doing.

"DON'T FUCKLE WITH SHARPEDO"
"DON'T FUCKLE WITH CLEFAIRY"
"DON'T FUCKLE WITH RELICANTH"

What part of "individual expression" don't you understand? There's a world of difference between a themed Halloween with friends and (were such a thing possible in the real world) tattooing your body, styling your hair, and purchasing clothes once every two months to match your friends. One is an annually-scheduled event where you're expected to dress up. The other is how you present yourself to the world every day of your life. If you're selecting your clothes, hair style, and other body modification (or lack thereof) solely because you too want to fit in with the "cool kids" who are doing it, then you're a fucking sheep and I have no respect for you. It's the same thing with avatars. It's no coincidence -- NO COINCIDENCE -- that the sheeple avatar hivemind bullshit is always, always, always initiated by one of two sources:
  1. Kuno
  2. ASB icons
You never see swampert28 pick a new avatar and then everyone else is like "FUCK WHOA! I GOTTA GET ME ONE OF THOSE TOO!" If it isn't Kuno, Hanatori, Daisy, a yellow name, or some other legend of the ASB, then it's fuck off to them and their stylin' avatar. That tells you all you really need to know about the sheeple avatar crap: it isn't people wanting to emulate what's intrinsically good but rather people wanting to emulate what's extrinsically fashionable, with "fashion" being decided -- as often happens in the real world too -- by the whims and fancies of celebrities.

tl;dr you can't compare Hallowe'en dress up with the girl who goes to school copying the latest styles of select celebrities.
