Anyway, have you ever wanted to make your own Pokemon? Well, that's what this person and a lot of other artists on deviantArt do. It's a sort of a sub-niche within the Pokemon niche. The imagined Pokemon are called 'Fakemon' and sometimes these ideas are realized by the artists in a concept drawing. Out of many Fakemon artists, I think mssingno has some of the best concepts. They were nice enough to let me feature the Fakemon they've come up with, so here are a few that really stood out and I could definitely see becoming Pokemon.
First, let's begin with some starter Pokemon concepts:
|Monoliz -> Hydros -> Serpentreo|
Though Generation V has a Hydra-like dragon, I really love this design.
|Floatern -> Ringull -> Seagale|
I like this much better than Wingull.
Biggest. Pokemon. Ever.
A steel and 'light'-type Pokemon. I approve.
Here's a few more that I thought were worth mentioning, though like with purplekecleon's article, I will probably forget some that I wanted to feature:
|Scarib -> Scaracoph -> Scarrapri|
A Pokemon based on a Scarab, now that's an idea that should have been done a loooong time ago. Great design with this.
Based on a Gila Monster, another great concept.
Not quite like my idea for another Water/Steel type, but still good, nonetheless! I wouldn't have thought of an underwater mine to be a Pokemon, but I can live with this design.
I have seen someone suggest a pumpkin-based Pokemon before, and this has been the best design for one I've seen so far.
I really love this one. The Tron-like look of it is so cool.
Another concept I wouldn't have thought of. A Ghost/Steel type, very unique design.
He looks pissed. Another concept for a Steel/Water type, the fishbowl just adds to the cuteness.
Well, that is a sampling of the Fakemon by mssingno. Really awesome designs, right? I've tried designing a couple of Fakemon, but I don't think they could compete with what's posted here, or in the rest of mssingno's gallery. Go have a look and thank them for letting me use the artwork in this feature!
