Feel free to change the "you have" to "I have," "he has," "she has," etc. Not specified. Yay Japanese.

Not sure how I feel about this comic. ^^; It's adorably drawn and it has a feel-good feeling to it, but at the same time it ... I dunno ... it feels kind of sad. ^^; Like, Jirachi is so happy to see May again ... but this is the same May who traded Jirachi away in the first place. ^^;;

I want to go with "It's adorable." Let's go with "It's adorable."

Oh my gosh. D: Same exact feelings as before. Torn between "adorable" and "sad". I think I prefer the Jirachi artist's take better since she appears to have the Jirachi reuniting with the original May (just wearing new clothes) whereas the Delcatty artist has Delcatty meeting Brendan's reincarnation. The latter take makes me sadder. But they're both both happy and sad. Man.

I don't see the gif on either their Tumblr or their Pixiv account. (Pixiv I checked everywhere. Tumblr I stopped at the end of the first page.) How did you come upon it?

Found on another person's tumblr. Also saw this (by another artist):

Daisy showed me that one a week or two ago on Skype. I believe my response was, "Aw! D:" or "Aw! " Poor Chikorita. (I reject that artist's headcanon, and use the anime's many, many occurences of Chikorita in the winter with her leaf still very much intact to support my views. )

These "returning home" pieces might have me force myself to make one if/when Sinnoh remakes emerge.

You will most likely have to do it yourself. Nintendo aggressively takes legal action against vendors who sell homemade Pokémon merchandise.

A few months ago, specifically, there was an upload to Imgur that showed eight seventeen different concept tank tops to be worn at the gym. (Found it!) The person who uploaded the concept art had made use of one particular custom t-shirt website's preview feature in order to produce the images. The owner of the website just happened to also be an Imgur user, and she replied saying that she nearly had a heart attack when she saw the upload. She explained to the Imgur site users that her company would never have allowed the submitted designs to make it past the submission step, and that the reason is because having to do anything with Pokémon when you're a custom t-shirt company is just asking for a lawsuit. Note: It looks like she deleted her original comment and I can't find all of her replies, but at least one of her replies is still there:
Quote:
*She. But yes! I work for CustomInk. The OP used our Design Lab tool to make all those designs. Sadly we could never print them, though.
Also a few months ago, less specifically, you may remember that Chia Pet Bulbasaur that someone on Etsy came up with. They were sued, and Nintendo filed for the full amount (gross profits, not just net profits) that the Etsy vendor had made off of the Chia pets. Needless to say the Chia pets were taken offline.

I don't screen t-shirts much myself (last time I did it would've been around ten years ago), but I'll bet that you can find some excellent tutorials online for how to do it, which t-shirts to use, which DIY packages to purchase, etc.

Here's some really awesome Halloween-themed ORAS tie-in art the Pokémon Company commissioned from Junji Ito, a famous horror mangaka, for their whole big Halloween event.

Now you're making me want to see Fukumoto (Akagi, Kaiji) or Araki (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) toss their hats into the ring.

Don't think I've ever read any of Itou's works or seen any anime adaptations of them, but the picture is still saved nonetheless. It's always cool to see famous mangaka and illustrators contributing fanart. It's a shame Nintendo is so uptight about how their IPs are depicted in media as otherwise we could've had a "for the fans, by a fan" parody series of Pokémon by now in the same vein as Carnival Phantasm. Man, just imagining a Carnival Phantasm-style take on Pokémon is making me sorely wish we had one already. T_T

On the t-shirt topic, while I know Nintendo's shut down many homemade operations... I've seen many commercial t-shirts for sale, and I've even seen them commonly worn. Admittedly, set-design t-shirts are a far cry from custom made ones... But it makes me rather confused in terms of Nintendo's legal actioning? Or are all those stores simply having them shipped in from Pokecenter or wherever as a retailer?

I don't think it's necessarily either one of those two possibilities. A third possibility (and this is what I think is happening) is that some entrepreneurs take the risk, believing that fair use laws will cover their right to make money off of homemade Pokémon merchandise. If you happen to be a shopper who finds such a merchant before Nintendo does, then guess what: you've gotten yourself a brand new t-shirt. A fourth possibility is that the people you saw at the conventions made those shirts themselves. Obviously not the case if you saw a merchant booth selling the shirts, but still possibly the case if you're just basing it on having seen 10-30 people wearing them. Think about people who make t-shirts for their sports team. Same idea. Now if you saw 50+, I'd be right with you in suspecting a merchant made and sold them.

Finding out that my favorite horror mangaka drew my favorite Pokemon is just a complete and absolute dream come true. I've heard whispers that a manga might be in the works, as well, which just seems too good to be true, but my fingers are crossed. Regardless, it'll take a lot for this picture not to be my avatar for the rest of eternity.

This is my avatar... It was made for me...

大人気ホラー漫画家・伊藤潤二先生が、ポケモンを描く! Super popular horror manga writer Itou Junji-sensei draws Pokémon!

Cutting to the chase, you want to click on where it says イラストを見る ("see the illustration") beneath each Pokémon. The Banette one you've already seen, but the Gengar one is new.

I'm not sure why they chose to do it this way but apparently this is the background image of that page. Weird.

Been a while since I looked at Souji's artwork published on Twitter (rather than Pixiv). The following is lightly NSFW (no nudity or sex acts but swimsuit and super softcore suggestive pose):

Stumbled upon this beautiful piece on Deviantart today. Wait as it loads.

I love the art style. It's not a cartoon by any stretch but the designs aren't too realistic that they take away from the fantasy element of Pokémon. It's kind of how I'd imagine the world of Pokémon to look when I'm writing for either Fizzy Bubbles or PASBL. It's a lot easier to describe a scene like that in colourful detail than it is to describe a scene like this - which is partly why I have so many gripes with the Pokémon anime.

Just found something else on Tumblr, another take on the 'realistic Pokémon' bent:

I particularly like Electabuzz despite that normally being my least favourite of the line.
