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

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.

What's so great about Talonflame is that it's not a legendary but a pretty ordinary Pokemon with cool typing. Not everyone rates Pokemon according to how good they are in the competitive area. To people like them, to people who also think ordinary and not so powerful Pokemon are great, Talonflame is something new and awesome. (Also, I love firebirds.)

Probably because outside of the warrior cat fandom people are far more likely to think of a fire bird.

Also because warrior cat names work on that strange fiction naming system that generates "tribal sounding names" as seen in popular culture. Second only to "Verbs the Noun" naming systems. So its relatively easy to get something in those kind of works that would be similar to Talonflame.

Jostakin kumman syystä tämä muistuttaa minua yhdestä tarusta, jonka luin lapsena. Siinä mies oli tehnyt niin kamalan rikoksen, että rangaistukseksi hänet laitettiin ketjuilla kiinni vuoren huipulle ja joka päivä valtava kotka tuli ja repi hänen sisälmyksensä ulos. Mies kun oli kuolematon, tämä ei vahingoittanut häntä, joten joka päivä tämä sama kotka tuli vuoren huipulle ja repi hänen sisälmyksensä uudestaan ja uudestaan.

Mielleyhtymät ovat hassuja joskus x)

Tykkään Talonflamen sulista erityisesti. Yksityiskohdat ovat hunajaa silmilleni <3
Hienoa työtä kuten aina ;) /

( nimi voisi olla ehkä Faiaflame vähän kuin se joku räppäri Flavor Flave xD )

Kuulostaa jotenkin etäisesti tutulta tarulta, tai sitten se on joku tuota muistuttava. Aika karu, mutta jollain oudolla tapaa tosi kiehtova.
Mutta aika jännä mielleyhtymä. XD

Kiitos paljon!

(Ja melkein mikä vaan nimi kelpaisi, tämä nykyinen on aika Talonlame. Fiarrow se on kai japaniksi.)

Kerrankin lapsuuden intohimo kaikenlaisiin muinaisiin kreikkalais- ja roomalaistaruihin kannatti. Pitäisi vähän virkistää muistia taas niiden osalta ^^

( Talonlame, I see what you did there ;D Tarvitseeko ihan kaikkien lintupokemonien nimi olla row- loppuinen? Menen kohta ihan sekaisin niiden kaikkien kanssa :) )

Pitäis munkin tutustua paremmin kaiken maailman tarustoon. Ne on todella mielenkiintoisia.
Row-loppuisia on kyllä paljon, mutta siltiii. Se uusin Steel/Ghost tyypin Pokemon on miekka, jonka nimi on Honedge. :I Pitäis varmaan antaa kääntäjälle potkut.

Ah, Talonflame, my new favorite bird. Unfortunately, its name sucks. A lot. But it's about time they made something phoenix-y.

The art is phenomenal. The feathers and the face look so realistic. You are such a great artist, with a grand take on Pokemon. (grand? I'm so weird, I swear)

:iconshadeofshinon:

Well, they have made Molters, which is in my opinion more phoenix-y. Talonflame is a flaming hawk rather than a phoenix.
Thank you very much though!

I agree. I think it is based on a falcon since Game Freak said that in this generation they were trying to make Pokemon look more believable, hence so many animal-based Pokemon.
