>>38569891get rid of the cannons and it'd be good.
>>38569891Remove the retarded cannons and it's perfect
>>38569891give him a beard!
>>38569992Replace those cannons with wings!
>>38569891You start OP, what you posted sure as hell isnt a fix.
Whipped this up in about 30 seconds as a conceptual model. Nobody ever liked the shift to a turtle head
>>38570146For a better idea of how this might look, I altered the original artwork a little to further illustrate the idea
>>38569891Can't find any right now but most edits of gallade's hips either normal or like a skirt
>>38569891Gourgeist just needs some fine-tuning to go from Garbage to Gallant.
>>38569899>>38569901>>38570091What is with this anti-gun propaganda
>>38570331Why would you add something so artificial and man made on such a plain ass looking turtle?
>>38569899>it just gets biggerNot on my watch.
>>38570933This has to be bait
>>38570345>hurr what are musselsDo yourself a favor and tell me what Blastoise's species name is. Dont worry you can look it up
>>38571282I like it
ITT:>JUST MAKE IT MORE LIKE DA PRE-EVO!!!
>>38569891isn't that just a worse version of this?
>>38569933>>38570091Shit taste, shit opinions
Always funny to see what nonsense /vp/ considers a "fix"
>>38569899>get rid of the cannonsfuck you keep them and make it water/steel
>>38571322Not him but holy shit I never knew that Blastoise was a shellfish.
>>38571977It's because he isn't and that's a mistranslation at best.
>>38571503>implying Chikorita -> Bayleef -> Meganium isn't a godtier line
>>38571995no the pokedex is canon
>>38570933WHEN I WAS
>>38572083A YOUNG WARTHOG
>>38572021"Koura" means "shell", not "shellfish". The translator went full retard.
>>38571995but it's not. It IS, partly, but Blastoise isn't just a tortoise/turtle. The cannons are a reference to certain types of Mussels that have tube-like appendages in their bodies for shooting water to propel them with. Blastoise is just taking this to the next level, propelling the water as a projectile. Charizard is the same idea - Its pre-evolutions are based on the mythical Salamander (NOT the, very real, amphibious one.) and so it takes the logical step to evolve into another fire-associated, western mythical reptile - the Dragon.
>>38572210it's a localization, not a translation. If it's shellfish then it's shellfish.
>>38572231>charizard>dragonFucking zodiacfags, I swear
>>38572238Then why did they just give yen a new coat of paint or keep all the other very Japanese things (and make Surge an American) rather than change the prices?
>>38572257Better question: Why is it still called the National Dex, even in Gen 5 and on, when they mean Global Dex? It made sense when Kanto/Johto were neighbors, when not!Kyushu became Hoenn and when not!Hokkaido was made into Sinnoh and Almia. But even then, GameFreak likes to pretend if two regions arne't shown to be near each other, theyre probably not. Somehow Hoenn and Kalos lay a swimmable body of water apart, and Kanto and Alola are MUCH MUCH MUCH closer together. (your mom implies Lillie can come visit from time to time, but the two locales irl are 17 hours apart by plane. But Lillie took a fucking boat. She wouldve been on that boat for literal DAYS at real-world distance/locations.)
No. Just NoHow do those eyebrows make Blastoise better
>>38569992that beard is a sexy idea , love it
>>38572257>Then why did they just give yen a new coat of paintbecause it's fictional currency.
>>38569891>lets turn ears into eyebrows
>>38569891>Diarrhea from the ass>fix-a-mon
>>38572312>he thinks all the regions of a nation need to be close to eachotherRetard
>>38570158I think I just made it worse
>>38569891I actually don't understand, why doesn't Blastoise get a water themed tail?Is it Blastoise or Wartortle that fuck ups the linearity of these evo stages?
>>38574644Now THAT looks awesome
>>38575085I'd say Blastoise since Wartortle resembles Squirtle more than either of them resemble Blastoise
>>38575085>>38575110Blastoise wasn't originally in their evolution line, it was its own thing and one of the first Pokemon designed. I'm pretty sure they intended for Wartortle to just evolve into a bigger Wartortle like >>38571374But maybe they had a problem with having two separate lines of blue water turtles in a roster of ~150 so they just made Blastoise the final evolution
>>38574644Only improvement ITT.
i started this but can't be bothered to finish
>>38569891Really his Mega Y or Mega X should have looked like this
>>38572238It's not a good localization.
>>38576148Good grief, he's naked!
>>38576531Yeah, he's such a pig.
>>38576368Yes it is.
>>38569992Now that’s a manly mon!
>>38571363>I want my mom’s house pet to turn into an armored dragon for no reason
>>38575392Why do you always post this abomination? Learn design AND editing software.
>>38569891I kind of wish starters did have split evo for the 3rd stage. I'm sure it would hurt marketing, but it'd also make it just that much more likely that there's a final stage that appeals to everyone
>>38575085>>38575110>>38575221Judging by the Gen 1 asset leaks, Blastoise (Caravaggio) was probably gonna have its own pre-evo, while Wartortle would've evolved into a different Blastoise ("Kamex") that would've looked like it.
>>38576293I forgot that alternate sizes were this things gimmick desu.
>>38570146the lizard head is what Graveler gains upon being traded with Machoke. It's why Machamp gets the extra arms and fat lips.
>>38575099HE FOUND HIS AROMA LACKED A CERTAIN APPEAL
>>38574644yeah that's really good. Fuck turtlehead>>38574794That's almost as good as mine but I appreciate the attempt>>38578862yeah but fuck the headcanon it looks like shit
>>38575392>>38579377Not fixes, especially the color change. It’s body shape is so fundamentally different than Dratini/Dragonair that the orange color fits it. Things like >>38569903 end up doing what you’re trying to accomplish (making Dragonite look more like its earlier stages) but better.
>>38579587>Being 100% different is better than being 90% different
>>38570933This is how it should have been, but they couldn't because of graphical limitations.
>>38580622Yes. Because when it's 100% different the design works as its own thing instead of a half assed attempt at an evolution that randomly gets fat.
>>38575392change to fluffy angel wings and you get a deal
>>38574644graveller loses it's extra arms because machoke gets them
>>38575392>>38579377Straight Trash>>38569903Pure Beauty
>>38576148He looks inbred with pangoro
>>38576148Ganon really let himself go.
>>38569891My attempt. I had to basically scrap the whole design. Fuck assymetry. Fuck pipe limbs. Fuck the pompoms. A shame since his palette is actually interesting. Just a bad design and execution.
>>38577986>we could have had a baby Blastoise>We could have had a giant WartortleWhy do we live in the worst timeline
>>38583315it looks better than the original, the eyes look fierce which I'm a fan of. but I'm still unable to like a fucking trash bag
>>38580622>t. retard>>38582003Also, thank you anon, as you put it more concise than I could.
>>38582153That was actually the point of the design. It ran with the idea of “what if Golem didn’t get Machoke’s features and Machamp didn’t get Graveler’s features.” The Machamp wasn’t as good, though, and basically looked like a bigger, more muscular Machoke, similar to Poliwhirl > Poliwrath. Tried some things to differentiate it, like Machoke’s stretch marks/arm rips on the rest of the body, and turning it red, but it was still relatively unsuccessful.
>>38576306I remember this thread, this is the best one I’ve seen here
IDEK, I was 19 when I thought of this and Magnezone wasn't even a thing yet.
>>38582003And evolution being completely different is actually worse, makes the line inconsistent.Or do you think that Octillery is a good evo?
>>38584359But anon, Octillery IS a good evolution. Aquatic creatures with suction cups as a base, with an artillery/firearms theme.
>>38583315Trash kraken would be my favorite unova mon
>>38571503You are a retard if you think that's how the johto starters work.
>>38576306This is a good redesign, but I don't think Manectric needs to be fixed. Manectric's current design is just fine (or at least much better than its Mega)
>>38584354You were 19 before 1963? If not, it's just a dalek.
>>38569891>furries in charge of designing mons Blastoise is dope. Sorry it doesn’t have an epic cute floof tail for you bronies to use as a cumrag
Fix this shit.
>>38585451Fuck you. Shes perfect.
>>38585475Sick joke faggot
>>38585311No, I was 19 in 2006 when I drew that thing.
>>38585451I really don't like its eye lashes
>>38583315this is fucking based
>>38572210the pokedex is canon i don't make the rules
>>38576148this is so much better
>>38576531>charizard/typhlosion/feraligatr is NAKED!underage detected
>>38570158>>38570146But the original point was that it was to be traded with Machoke and it got the reptilian features while Machamp got the extra arms from Graveler. I honestly miss the trade/dna mess ups that were clearly hinted at one point.
This is one of those designs that I hate normally, but this way I love.
Rhydon and Rhyperior should be improved. Part of Rhyhorn's appeal are the assortment of stone plates covering it's body, which for Rhydon just turns into gray skin w/spikes. Another good aspect of Rhyhorn's design is it's compact body with a wedge-like head. You can really imagine how devastating a charge from this mon would be. It's harder to imagine such a devastating charge from, say, Rhydon, whose upright, out-dated dinosaur stance doesn't confer power. So a Rhydon that carries these traits over or at develops on them would be great. Once we have a working Rhydon we can decide what to do with Rhyperior.
>>38586983I drew this by mouse ages ago as an Alolan form, but I still like it better than Rhyperior by far.
>>38583315The assymetry, pipe limbs, and resemblance to a "dust bunny" are the point and the charm though. Nice Hedorah, I guess.
>>38586046Do something with the body too
>>38587239Just make the body green like a bush.
>>38576148Literally a few million times better than the original
>>38587908Meant more just the pink torso bit rather than head/arms/legs.
>>38583343Baby blastoise was the best sprite HC drew for their romhack imo (that wasn't a direct trace from a real PM sprite).
>>38586963Completely misses the point of inkay inverting itself upon evolution.
>>38569891Shit>>38569899>>38569901>>38570091pic related is you faggots>>38574644Not bad, Alolan Golem needs an improvement moreso>>38575392Nice down syndrome dragon>>38569903The only good Dragonite redesign in this thread>>38576306Another good one
>>38570933Going by the ORAS Primals' designs (overall same silhouette, but different body patterns), that's probably close to the new form Palkia will get on the DP remakes.
I wish we had this for a Tangela line.
>>38576148This is vastly better. If you could do something about the muppet mouth it would be perfect.
>>38583315>What if Garbodor was MukLame.
>>38569992That actually looks good on him, wtf.
>>38576148>I'm a one man apocalypse
>>38590768damnthis was all set up, wasn't it?
Someone post the god tier Rhyperior redesign
>>38592047there is none
every single design in this thread is garbage except >>38569903 and even then it's a lateral move at best
>>38571503I actually like that Charizard kind of. It gives me single stage tough guy vibes like Druddigon or something.
>>38592052Disagree. I think >>38574644 is a good one too, for what it was supposed to be. Otherwise, yeah, most are shit.Still waiting for a good redo of Aromatisse.
>>38594021I assume you wish the Plague doctor theme was more explicit?
>>38586796Way to miss the whole joke you slobbering retard
>>38583315This is awfulVery reminiscent of an F tier DigimonDon't choose design as a career path bub
>>38594088fix the hat why wold it be a bubble>>38594252>it looks like a Digimongreat critique buddy what's your take on fixing Garbodor?
>>38569891that blastoise looks terrible
>>38588801>>38586963Not if you do it to both
>>38569891Don't mind if l drop my kids here
