Talonflame by ShadeofShinon Talonflame by ShadeofShinon
Talonflame is a fiery Fire/Flying-type Pokémon and is an evolved form of Fletchling. It is capable of flying through the air at speeds of over 310 mph, causing flames to spout from its body as it zooms by.

It is capable of using Brave Bird to inflict significant damage on the foe, although at the cost of heavy recoil damage. Additionally, it can use Flame Charge, a move an earlier evolutionary form, Fletchling, could learn.


Another great Pokemon revealed recently. I was pretty exited when I found out Fletchling might have a Fire/Flying type evolution since it learned Nitro Charge and boy was I happy when Talonflame was revealed. I've been wanting a non-legendary bird Fire/Flying type for ages because fire and birds, fuck yeah! On the top of that, Talonflame's design is pretty badass!
The name is quite lame but oh well, I'll get used to it.

I had to draw it, too. Can't say no to drawing awesome birds.

Welcome to my team, Talonflame!

I hope you like it!

Cool, I think I like your version of talonflame more than the official design. This one looks more like a real raptor. I'm not too fond of talonflame's chunky look really, this one has a nicer figure.

I like the sort of minimalist shading style of this piece, the feather details kind of look like stained glass. And those whirling clouds are just beautiful. Lovely job on this bird.

I'm glad to hear you like it. The fact that Pokemon looks so chunky officially is one of the reasons why I draw them the way I do.
This style was an experiment that just kinda happened. I like to try out different styles and this one was pretty fun to do. Thank you!

I have one in my team in X.  She kicks major butt in Sky Battles.  And she OHKO'ed Hawlucha in the Champion battle.  Go Talonflame!  :-D

Talonflame is way better than I expected, especially with its hidden ability. Such a great and beautiful Pokemon1

What's so new about Talonflame? We already have Charizard, Moltres and Ho-oH. All they were unlikely to be used on generation IV onwards because of Stealth Rock, and I think the same will happen with Talonflame.
