Skrelp by Xous54 Skrelp by Xous54
My artwork for Skrelp, the Poison/Water-Type sea dragon Pokémon in X and Y. I'm pleased with how this turned out.

Please note that at this time I'm still sketching some of the revealed / leaked Pokémon, and I'm not sure how long it will take to finish their art. At the time of writing this I have Noivern and Clauncher sketched.

Enjoy.

Skrelp reminds me so much of Kingdra.

I'm planning on using this Pokemon! At first I looked at him like "Man, he's ugly", but then I loved him.... for some reason :D

Probably Noivern. I'm a sucker for Dragon-Types, anyway.

dcwazzy Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
Noivern is one of my favorites too. I love fruit bats in general, and they made it into a dragon which makes it all the better. Plus, I really like the fact that they made Flying the primary type. But I am also very partial to Pancham, Fennekin, and the Fletchling line... I love them as well.

Didn't want to say it until all pokemon were revealed but it can't be helped. Gamefreak has officially ran out of good ideas.

I respect you're opinion, but please explain how they're "running out of ideas"? All the new Pokemon revealed so far are great IMO, bar Newtwo. Heck the ideas behind them sound great actually:

Poison leafy sea dragon

Pistol shrimp Pokemon

Fruit bat wyvern hybrid

Perigrine Falcon
etc.

You say that like it's meant to be objective

:iconjrryumaru20000:
JrRyumaru20000 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
I phrased it wrong they aren't running out of ideas they're running out of good designs. I already hate most like 2/3 of the designs. If pretty much hit or miss with all of these. And when they miss they're not even in the ball park.

I do like the Fruit bat wyvern hybrid and Perigrine Falcon though and I in fact like Mewtwo new form as well.

TheAngryBadger9427 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
Eh, the only misses for me is the new butterfly and Newtwo. Not that I hate them, they're just "whatever" for me.

Well curious, which one are the "misses" for you?

For ever good pokemon design that appears two bad ones are there. First generation I liked like 3/4 of the pokemon, but none were down right intolerably. Second, Third, and Fourth generation was a sweep. I name all the pokemon I don't like using just my 10 fingers. Fifth Generation was like first 3/4 but also had plenty of pokemon I just could not stand such as that trash dump thing. These new pokemon, without taking into consideration what they evolve into or from, are very much pass or fail with mostly no in-between and when I do get X and Y I'll probably will be sticking mostly to pre-existing pokemon rather than trying to catch and train all of the new generation.

Also I exaggerated when I said there no ideas. As I like Horde, Character customization, Fairy types, and a lot of things about this upcoming game, but I really don't like the designs that are failing to get me pumped like they should. Its just getting dull after seeing Awakened MewTwo

Well yes I understand that lol, how ever I think the species may have come to look that way due to pollution or something due to it's poison typing.
