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.

Think this has something related to the powerplant?

Confirming Sass' comment below. You got a thief on your case.

Yo I don't know if you care much about art theft but…
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!
