Holy skittles and pancakes Dara! I didn't even know you drew Ardere until Sil told me. She's beautiful. I'm so glad you like her that much, you captured her perfectly.

For the last few months, every time I earned a new badge, I would make a smaller, pixel version of it with a shine animation. I made them for my signature, cause then I can show off my badges without having to result in a spoiler, and it makes it not look like such a mess.

Sketch of a possible Lucario evolution. Still doesn't have a name, and there are still some things I could probably do to make it look better.
Been experimenting with poses.

Just an idea but I think a Riolu ALT evolution (that evolves at night) would be cool for that ^^;

Human Avatars?

Guess I should explain. Since we are aloud humans on the site, and since we seem to be getting some human resistance now, I figured I would take a crack at doing a human avatar that is similar to the pokemon one's we are already using. I used my trainers Dean and Ryan as the test subjects, and I have to admit, they came out better then I thought they would.

Houndrunt

Little guy has been in my head for the last few weeks and I just felt like sharing. Though he wont really be a fakemon for the site as Houndoom already has an evolution, and so there can be no pre-evolution for Houndour

Only one Houndrunt is born in a littler, when one is, it is normally abandoned by it’s parents to fend for itself, as Houndrunts are normally the runt of the littler, and most parents don’t want to go through the trouble of taking care of it. It’s pretty rare when the mother keeps and raises it. Because of abandonment, not many make it to evolution, and die within the first week if not the first day of being abandoned. Those that do make it to evolution are extremely solitary and don’t trust others easily, though they tend to be a little stronger then most. Some Houndrunts are sometimes taken in by another pack of wild pokemon or Houndoom, so it’s not highly unlikely to see one with a pack of Mightyena, Arcanine or other canine pokemon. Even a lonely female Houndoom will take it in and raise it as it’s own, though this normally only happens if the female was unable to have pups of her own and then most likely abandoned by her mate, or if she had been a Houndrunt herself at some point and knows what the pup is going through. Sometimes even a male Houndoom will care for it, though it’s mostly out of pity when that happens.
Houndrunt’s are not commonly found in the wild, and so it’s more likely to find one with a breeder or trainer.

That's a really interesting back story to the pokemon. :D He is so cute! I especially love his eyebrows and eyes~

There are ways to work around those three evo rules, if you can make alternates.
I say you should put it up anyway for the admins, see what they think. :3
I'm planning on making a Ponyta alternate evo, even though there is already a third fakemon evo.
(Poison/fire type, special circumstance, like the poison type eeveelution. technically it's a branch off, so I think it'll be accepted)
If you can creatively find a way to make it fit, you know?
Always worth a shot, especially if you put work into it. <3

Indeed, Fox is correct.
Your designs are incredible, and we would hate to see them go unused.
So I spoke with Lugia to clarify this matter:

Lugia wrote:It could work if it either couldn't make it to our fakemon: Houndrunt --> Houndour --> Houndoom, or as a substitute for Houndour. Houndrunt --> Houndoom --> Houndusk.

I think the latter could actually work, as many runts, if given proper nutrition, can get as big or exceed their broodmates.

And this can also apply to other fakemon you created as well. And if you have a design in mind that you don't know will work with canon or not, the admins' boxes are always open. We are always happy to hammer out those issues with you. B]

Hello all, been awhile.
I'm thinking about coming back, but sure a lot has changed, so I most likely have much to catch up on.
