Nest of Fire by ShadeofShinon Nest of Fire by ShadeofShinon
:bulletgreen: In case you still don't know what's going on... :bulletgreen:

Two pictures in a day! This must be a new record.
I wanted to draw the generic fire fox starter because even if it's very generic, I like it a lot. The design is nice and simple and what's even better, it's not very likely to evolve into a Fire/Fighting type. I hope. But yeah, I'm gonna pick Fennekin when I get the games. I like the other two starters, too, but Fennekin is just too adorable.
I think Fennekin might set a small fire to protect itself while it's sleeping. It's hard to draw these new Pokemon since we know so little about them. Well, I wanted to draw a fire fennec sleeping inside a ring of fire.

I'll draw the deer legendary tomorrow. Saving the best for last. :heart:

I hope you like it!

Right now I'm a bit torn between the starters. Fennekin hasn't disappointed at any point but I saw potential in Chespin - until the evolution was revealed. And now I'm kinda rooting for Froakie. Well, we'll see what I actually end up getting.

Cute ^.^ I think Fennekin would be a fire/physcic type or fire/eletric.

It knows a move called "Glow Punch", which reminds how fairies glow(a fairy punch XD). So  there are three possibilities:
-Fire/Pyschic
-Fire/Ghost
-Fire/Fairy

Ahahaha, fairy punch?! That's priceless. But I actually like the possibilities, I don't even mind fairy that much though I wish they didn't shove the type like everywhere.

I think it's quite unlikely. I believe at this point even Nintendo has had enough of Fire/Fighting starters.
At least I really, really hope so.
Probably gonna pick Chespin anyway, Fennekin lost its charm when I heard it shoots fire out of its ears.

I want to hug him, but he might give me third degree burns ;_;...
On the note of which starter I'm going to pick, I'm probably gonna go with Chespin. Nothing against the others (even Froakie. I know peole hate him, but honestly, I think he's too derpy to dislike), I just REALLY LIKE CHESPIN ouo

I think he'd be the same as Ponyta: if he trusts you, he won't burn you. :>
I like both Froakie and Chespin, too. I have very high expectations of Chespin's evolution, and I might end up picking him.

It looks so sleepy and serene, despite the destructive power all around it~ I love it! /^^\

Just for curiosity, how do you think it controls these fires it sets?
I'm thinking about ecological balance - every ecosystem has some form of destruction, but it's always curbed and controlled, and BALANCED, with something else...~

(Perhaps I'm taking Poke-realism a bit too seriously, but I can't help it sometimes! <XD )

Thank you!

Your explanation sounds good, it might as well be like that. I think my idea was some sort of mix between that and the rumor of Fennekin being Fire/Psychic so it could control the fires with its mind.
Poke-realism is fun to think about, but I think making them hyper realistic isn't that good. What I mean is that if you take it too far, if you try to apply "the rules of the real world" on everything Pokemon might lose what makes them so fascinating and unique. For example legendaries easily lose their godhood and what makes them so special. It's kinda hard to explain, but that's what I think.

I must see your rendition of Froakie. I want the frog so badly. However, it all depends on their final evolutions.
Reply
:iconshadeofshinon:
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
The final evolutions would be interesting to see. Fennekin would be my pick based on the first stages, but all of them have potential. I'll wait for the evolutions before I make decisions.

Yes, it has. The last time I picked a fire starter was Torchic in 3rd gen (or Cyndaquil in HG).

The last time I started with a fire type was My SS nuzlocke. Boy I am so glad he didn't die. And then I have a hard time between all the starters in Kanto. I am pretty sure I've picked all of them in seperate games...

I always have hard time with Kanto and Hoenn starters, I like them all. Losing your starter in a Nuzlocke is really sad and it hurts. A lot.

Both of the nuzlockes I've done so far, luckily, I haven't lost the starters. Thankfully...
