Unnecessarily Badass Pokemon by Shira-chan Unnecessarily Badass Pokemon by Shira-chan
Anyone else notice that lately people keep drawing themselves and their Pokemon team as really gritty, scary, ultra badass folks? Turning cute adorable Pokemon into serious monsters?

That's kinda what I was going for here, but I deliberately picked some of the weeniest, weakest, LEAST badass Pokemon I could, just to see what would happen when I cranked the volume up to Gratuitous.

P.S. Drawing in other styles is fun :) You should try it sometimes!

Togepi doesn't look badass, it looks gross.

You are right. Completely unnecessary. But so ridiculously freaking awesome.

Oh wow, this is really incredible. THE PSYDUCK!! I can't help but picture it speaking in a thick German accent, for some reason! XD "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die."

... I should probably tell you that there is a BIG difference between being "badass" and being "Holy Jesus Christ That Will Haunt My Nightmares For Longer Than This Guy: [link]"

heheh thats great! although im not a pokemon fan , i used to see the anime as a child and its always fun to see those pretty monsters drawn in different ways :) I rly like the "badass" way , just like this. Ur psyduck looks like a murderer but if i had to pick one , id say the zombie egg! ( i think its called togebi or smthing xD )

Gotta love gritty style pokemon.

Although I guess the gritty series of the pokemon wouldn't be as nice to the younger ones if it aired.

I kind of did a couple years ago, but I was just doodling in my art book at school. Also it was a Typhlosion and a Suicune in the picture, so they can look pre badass if they wanna (Typhlosion looked like a bear :D)
clearwater04 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012

These pokemon sure are bad-ass, but that psyduck..... o.O that psyduck will be giving me nightmares from now on.

Amazing job! Incidentally, creepy, gritty, and scary monsters-types is one of four essential supplements needed to keep me alive. Pokemon is another one. You've provided me two daily doses in one picture! :D

Wow, they actually look like they could do something now, like actually win a battle. Amazing job!!

Dude, this is AWESOME! I love the style you drew yourself with. You should do it more, it is righteously badass. :D

I think one of my favorite things about this is the string of saliva on that...thingy's tongue.
Shira-chan Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, the drippy saliva was like the trickiest part XD
