Volcanion by Xous54 Volcanion by Xous54

Edit: Changed the jaw, nostrils, and part of the eyes to match what is seen in clearer images of Volcanion. Parts may still be incorrect.

 

My artwork for Volcanion, a supposed Fire/Water-Type Mythical Pokémon in X and Y. Following some leaked information not too long ago (their names and possible Type combinations), images of the Mythical Pokémon (often called "Event Legendaries") of X and Y were leaked by a user named Smealum. Whether the images are true or not isn't 100% confirmed but it's highly likely given the circumstances.

 

Here I went with a very basic head-on pose because I didn't want to just re-draw the pose from the leaked image. Since we don't have many references for it a lot of its design is still a mystery and left up to speculation - this pose made it so that I was able to draw only details I could definitely (or 99%) make out. Even so, there are still things I'm not 100% sure about.

 

Enjoy. I plan on drawing the other two Mythical Pokémon (Diancie and Hoopa) over the next couple days.

Going by the leak, I can tell you now that Volcanion has been drawn to detail perfectly. I actually thought it was one of Ken Sugimori's artwork.

Xous54's illustrations are extremely perfect; some users on here use his art for the purpose of crating fan-made Pokémon cards, whilst giving him credit for the artwork.

This person stole your art and removed the tags, and they're also stealing art from me and a few other people. Just wanted to let you know!

Judging from it's Pokedex entry ,he seems to create steam in his body and release it from the ring on his back which is actually his cannons joined together, and he splits them when he uses them.

This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you. This freaked me out, so I had no choice. Forgive me!!!

I wouldn't call it cool. The Types clash together in quite... Ugly ways, design wise.

I'd call it useful. Seeing as Water- and Fire-types are some of the best attacking types there are.

If they can make a Fire/Water type, then I have a feeling we can expect a Fire/Grass type too (since we have a Water/Grass type already)
