I’ve noticed in the Pokemon Community, (Or fandom, whatever the fuck tickles your fancy feast) that there has been so much drama. Can we all just get along and stop? Take a second from the computer, and just think? I mean, arguing is one thing, but deleting your blogs? Come on, I know you guys aren’t all five year olds trying to be cool. A lot of you artists are amazing. Sure… There’s a opinion you don’t like… But does that mean you should throw a tantrum? Well yeah, if you aren’t willing and wise enough to just drop an argument. I see people being upset about follower numbers, Asks they receive, ‘quality’ they see themselves as, someone else’s opinion, and basically people being complete fucking idiots and not acting like mature artists/writers. Ever since 2013 started, everything began going downhill, and I am gravely disappointed. Slowly, I’m starting to regret being here. Cause now, it’s not as fun as it was when people were always happy and not at each other’s throats with ‘popularity’ standards or arguments.
I really, really despise how some blogs make their characters very overpowered for a Pokémon. Like being a couple feet tall, and using fucking hydro canon when angry. Again with the angry thing, it shouldn’t make your character mega powerful. If Pokémon really did get super powerful when aggravated, then trainers all around the world would use some kind of anger booster or something. Please, be conscious about what your character is. If it’s an Eevee, it shouldn’t have fucking hyperbeam.
I need some help when it comes to having material to critique and such. Please remember, you may submit art of a certain OC you’d like for me to review, alone with your own critique on the said character. Communication helps me know you guys aren’t dead and I’m not ranting to only myself.
All right, I found this thing and I literally couldn’t tell if this was a Pichu. It took me a minute to know if it was, and let me tell you, I’m going to have fun running this thing down… So, let’s try doing this /together/ like a family.
First up, appearance. I cannot stress enough, how you do /not/ need black and red on a character to make them look evil. Hell, red and black honestly aren’t scary and I have no idea why the fuck they’re used so often for evil characters. I see /no/ appeal. Anyway, sharp teeth, weird color let’s move on. Age is unknown, DOB is unknown, and relatives aren’t there. This makes no sense. Sure, you can forget what your age is if you have a horrid memory or something, but how does one not have parents or something. This thing doesn’t just poof into reality, you know. Even if this character’s parents died in a fire, that doesn’t mean they literally had no family. The ability on this OC is also just random. Pure Power, is only known to be on Medicham and Meditite, not Pikachus or something. There’s absolutely no way a Pichu can even obtain it either unless it was cross bred into obtaining it. Not only that, but you cannot cross breed Pikachu with a Metitite/Metitcham. It’s not possible. So how this thing had Pure Power is beyond me… Species: Shadow Pichu. This right here was the only way I knew this was a Pichu. Before you call out on the “omg wow shadow in front of species name how scary 2 spooky”, Shadow Pokemon actually existed in Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness. However, hold your horses because Shadow Pokemon did not have any changes in appearance. They weren’t black and weird looking; they were normal, ordinary, Pokemon with a (oo 2creppy) dark mist around them. Like so, this Pichu’s appearance shouldn’t have been altered because of this, and neither should its typing. The moves are just as off point since it has more than four moves. You might be saying, “But mod T, there can be more than four moves cause it’s rp not real game” and my reply to that is, you’re a dumb cucumber because it doesn’t matter RP/Anime/Game or not, they should not have like ten moves. It’s a fucking Pichu, not the god of the world. Threat level: Extreme. To whom is that threat level applying? If anything, the threat level varies, not is flat out “THIS THING IS DANGERO 2 ERRYON BICHES”. If that thing was fighting Kyurem, the threat level would probably be like “Mild”. Ooh? This Pichu is also sadistic? Wow, I didn’t know it got sexual pleasure from inflicting pain on others! How interesting for a fucking Pokemon! “Can survive without eating” “Addicted to eating blood”. Both of these do not make sense, as 1. They conflict each other, and 2. How does one eat blood? Is it frozen and so he just crams it into his mouth? “Might come off as flirtatious to certain people” Wow I feel bad for anyone who gets flirted with by a ‘evil’ Pichu. I really do. “Can only feel anger, disgust, and happiness.” That also conflicts with each other, cause those seem like basic emotions except replacing sadness with disgust.
How to fix this character to be less sue-ish? Quit being edgy and use your brain. It’s there for a reason, you know.
Oh wow sparkle amazing fantastic desu desu~~!!!!
No. This pisses me off. Not only does it have the HAIR tragedy, but the colors are wrong and— my god what’s wrong with the tail!? Is that a heart? Honestly, if we’re being logical,
which is next to never in the poke fandom cause fuck that then how that Flaaffy even got a paw on those hair bands, is beyond me. As well as how it got a orb to turn into a fucking giant heart. Oh, don’t forget the heart tattoo on the cheek. Fucking random. Last time I checked, Flaaffy’s didn’t have such long, exaggerated, hair. Sure, it’s fluffy but it’s not giant. As well as, the fur attaches to the bottom half! It’s not a tuff of fluff on top, then one around the neck! This is just… stupid. I don’t know. Maybe I’m stupid. But, anyway, I don’t get it. Let’s not forget to mention that the orb went from aqua blue to red. That must be fucking heavy too.
Well shit, let’s see what tips I can fish up…
- Learn what a whole Pokemon’s design looks like before making a fool of yourself…
- Learn the color pallets for the Pokemon too. Unless this was intentional to have bad color. Then in that case ignore this step.
- Random tatto and formations on the body? EXPLAIN THEM. DONT JUST ‘OH HERP DERP THIS CHARACTER GONN HAVE BOOBS AN HAIR STYLE AN COLORS AN RAINBOW BUTTERFLY LADY GAGA!’ or ‘the marks? they’re jus there….’
I’m done with this OC. Just… figure it all out before making one.
((Wow, it’s rant time! Even though you guys probably already see me as a stuck up jerk by now with this complaining, some of you will probably have some sort of hate vendetta on me after reading this. But what really bugs me about this community is that everyone jumps to conclusions and exaggerates new information from Nintendo before anything is released. Specifically, the fairy type. Yes, we know dragons are weak to fairies by 2X damage. But that’s it. Nintendo/Gamefreak has not released anymore information to my knowledge. Just because they gave one type advantage, does not mean “Oh I have a fairy type which means all your dragons are DEAD.”
Has everyone forgotten that dragons are also weak to ice by the same amount of damage? (And with my character, it’s 4X damage, AKA a OHKO kind of problem, which means he has more of a problem with ice than fairies.) I don’t see anyone immediately thinking that their dragon type is done for just because someone else has an ice type. Ice types have weaknesses, many of which dragon types can learn. Same goes for fairy. We don’t know their weaknesses except for rumors, but there’s a good chance that many dragon types will find a way to learn these moves.
Not only that, but levels. I’m sorry, but a lvl 5 Fire type has a minute chance of winning against a lvl 20 Grass type. And we come to stats. It all depends on the Pokémon’s speed, HP, their attacks/special attacks, and defenses/special defenses. Dragon types usually have a higher stats overall as a type, (usually because of legendaries/pseudo-legendaries), but you see my point. We don’t know how fairy types will be placed with stats yet, so hold your horses.
This has been bugging me since day one of fairy types. Don’t get me wrong, I can learn to like fairy types. But the way this community has this exaggerated opinion has pissed me off, and pushed me away from liking the fairy type in general. All I see are fairy types that are ready to slay dragons left and right and have been for years, when you don’t know squat about their weaknesses. It almost looks like this fandom has had hateful grudges against dragon types. I’m sure I’ll learn to love the fairy type, but seriously, people. Get over yourselves and actually wait for the game to come out before you jump to conclusions over which type will win. And anyway, as we’ve learned from the anime, type advantage means very little in a battle. Sure, it helps, but it’s possible to combat those weaknesses if you know what you’re doing.
The way Nintendo/Gamefreak has decided to change previous Pokémon’s typing just screws me over, because that just means anyone can say “I was weak to this type, and now I’m not!” I have no idea how they’ll explain that in the anime, but it sounds a lot like the creators changing their minds in the middle of a series. As far as we know, any Pokémon from the past five generations can have their type changed to fairy. Of course, some are more likely to become fairy, like Clefairy and Clefable, since it is in their species name, (unless they decide to prank us and say that Clefable, the Fairy Pokémon, will not be a fairy type.)
I want to avoid any battles with fairy types as of now, so sorry for that previous answer. I should have answered another way so that Ryan declines from that battle, but I didn’t think through it.
Sorry if this rant is a mess, because I can’t get all my ideas focused on one thing when I’m upset. If you have any hateful comments for me giving my opinion over this, then stay out of my ask box. I don’t have the patience to deal with immature people.))
Okay… It was a matter of time before I did one of these. Eevee OC.
Honestly, the design isn’t so bad… at first glance. Really, the color isn’t all that bad. Sure, the color… cold be a tad darker on the cream color or closer to brown since Eevee’s are brown, and the Hair could be much smaller or even disappear, but it’s not that bad of an OC… Honestly, I was surprised how hard it was for me to really search for an Eevee OC. But, anyway, the tails are random and just shouldn’t be there… Why. Why 3 tails. It was fine until I saw the 3 tails… Jus… Lose the tails or give some sort of reason as to why they’re there other than “idk he was born like that i guess lol calm yo selfves brohem.”
So, now for the point… it’s not bad. It could be worse… Tips I have; keep the colors slightly closer to the normal brown unless it’s a shiny, please refrain from putting random things on a character without reason, and forget the hair it doesn’t need to be there. Or make it short. that works too. That’s it. This is okay other than that.
I just want to say, Emmet and Ingo aren’t fucking robots and shit. By that, I’m not referring to the wonderful Robomas, but rather the fact people like to think Emmet smiles all the damn time while Ingo frowns every day and hates life. Fucking hell, they don’t have set expressions, they’re human fucking beings. Not that I’m saying they’re real, cause they aren’t, but seriously guys quit assuming things. I love the blogs that actually follow this headcanon, and it’s fine, just remember they don’t have set faces. Random rant is over.
Alright, Raichu OC. This one, full of faults. I had a hard time even knowing this was a Raichu. It’s lacking in actual Raichu details, such as the eyes and color placement, as well as…hair. The mere fact that there are millions of Pokémon OCs out there that use the hair thing pisses me off. Ah, I’ll cut you some slack and not carry on my hate for that. Color placement… Color, is a very important part to an OC, right? Well, yes, if it’s used correctly. The placements on this is… odd to say the least. The purple and green spots just randomly stick out, and doesn’t look that appealing to the eyes. True, green and purple both look good together, but it’s just plain weird to have it in odd places like this. Also, the hair.
How to save this OC, color. Please, at least understand they don’t need random spots of odd colors… Try taking away the spots on the feet, and choosing different colors for the cheeks and inside the ears. The tail is fine, but don’t over use the purple. Try keeping up with the fact this is a Raichu OC not one of your emo wolves.
Well then… look what I found….
Alright, Character’s name is… Kanji the Snivy.
At first glance, it looks like some sort of like something out of an emo fanfic… and it is! Wow! Let’s count and count the overused qualities, shall we?
3. Hair, FUCKING HAIR AND FUR
5.Chips and cuts
Now that we did, let’s run down these things, let’s try explaining them… Black. The color black and purple together. Disgusting combo, only aiming for disaster. Sure, it looks cool, but it looks just like the other 500 OCs out there who do it to be tight. Does it get their dicks hard or something cause I don’t see the appeal in black, red, and purple. and again with the fucking hair and fur. what is this, fashionista gobe wrong?! Last time I checked, Snivy is a plant/snake. Where does hair/fur fit in that? No where! Noo! Just loose the fucking tight ass fur, dammit! If anything, the only fur that should even be remotely possible on a plant, is mold. And mOLD ISNT BLACK AND HAIR LIKE!
Okay, okay, I’m gonna have a fucking heart attack from freaking out over these kinds of OCs…Now then, how to fix this poor OC. You can’t. I have no goddamn advice for this thing. ugh another lost OC. Lose the tight shit, start from scratch. Okay? I’m done with this OC, nEEEEXXT!!
