Gen 6.Starters by ZombieGnu Gen 6.Starters by ZombieGnu
Personal Project of mine. I am rendering every Gen 6 pokemon as they are released. I am holding off on the X and Y legendaries because I need to know their type. Will be doing legendaries a little different to the other pokemons.


Anyways, EXCITED. What starter are you choosing?

I am leaning towards Froakie myself.

Team froakie for life. My current protean greninja sweeps teams like a broom, and I'm searching for shiny frogadier in the friend safaris. Damn this is tedious.

I love this rendition of the starters. It looks like something that would pop right out of th screen yet doesn't deviate too much from the original design. Good job!

I'm leaning toward both Fennekin and Froakie, but because I'm getting the special Torchic through the event, I'll probably go with Froakie. I LOVE how you did Chespin, btw.

So Xerneas is a Fairy type and Yveltal is a Dark/Flying type. Wonder how the types do against each other?

I'm going with either Fennekin or Chespin, personally, but your rendition of Froakie is pretty cool despite the fact that personally I dislike that starter.

I imagine that Chespin's final evolution will somehow resemble an armadillo. The grassy design on its back seems likely to harden into a shell. At least that's my interpretation of the new grass starter, and it should be Grass/Dark!

But I'll be choosing Fennekin, despite my strong bond with Vulpix and Ninetales...

In Nintendo's style I only like Fennekin but your style you makes me love all three. Especially Chespin, adorable little chipmunk. ^_^

Still choosing Fennekin though.

These are so cute. I see all of these realistic versions of pokemon and they look so creepy to me but this, it looks like these could exist in the real world and not creep me out. A++

This is actually the first time for me that I'm torn between what starter Pokemon to chose. I loved Fennekin right off the bat, since I've always wanted a canine starter (now I need a feline one and I'm good. xD) Although, Chespin has really grown on me since they were revealed. I'm most likely gonna with Fennekin, but all I really need to decide is their evolutions.
This is also the first time I actually dislike a starter Pokemon too. ;n;
But nice job on the drawing! I can't wait to see the other gen 6 Pokemon you do. :b

you've done such a great job of rendering these out, but I'm curious as to why you didn't give Fennekin the proper tail, since Fennec foxes have long tails in comparison to their bodies, in comparison the one you've done seems a bit short.

Froakie is ugly. Eh. Who am I kidding? They're all ugly. The pokemon style itself is bleh.

But I love seeing fanart cause people can make them look so much better XD I love all of these and the frog looks so much more attractive looking like an actual frog!

OMG they are so cute~!!!!
i really love how you rendered them!!
i especially love the textures!!

i'll probably choose Fennekin (me and a bunch of other people because i see mainly Fennekin being drawn) because i love canine like creatures and fire (my friends and coworkers call me a pyromaniac cuz i love playing with fire. Give me a lighter and i'll be entertained for hours!! i once burned holes in a plastic solo cup at work cuz i was soo bored! well enough of me rambling). but the way you drew Chespin makes me want to choose him!! but since i always use fire types first ever since Red/Blue/Yellow (well not Yellow cuz you couldnt choose your starter ^^'), i'll most likely go with Fennekin.

Nice work. I've always been a fan of realistic Pokemon art. I really like the textures that you used and how you actually show the right fur/skin texture instead of one flat texture type. Wow... I said "texture" a lot. O.o.
Anyway, excellent work. I look forward to the rest of the Pokemon!
As for what starter I'll pick... I have to get a 3DS first but it's either going to be Froakie or Fennekin.

I still have yet to get a 3DS. It seems like so much money for a gimmick to me.
I need more Froakie brothers! D8

You have one more. Keromatsu is the best starter since RSE (I can't call him Froakie; that just sounds ridiculous).

I'm planning on getting Froakie! It's so cute. I don't get the deal with Fennekin... I mean it's cute, yes, but fire types as the first choice is so overrated. Besides! Who could resist a fluffy water frog with a mustache/glasses? ; u;

If only Chespin's official design was this cute... Alas, it looks like a half-assed cartoonish chipmunk to me and I'm not too fond of Froakie either. Therefore, I'll pick Fennekin.

About this picture, I think your realistic designs are very good! Even Froakie (who happens to be my least favourite of the gen 6 starters) looks pretty cool here. And while I mentioned previously that Fennekin was my favourite of the whole bunch (hands down) your adorable take on Chespin really takes the cake this time. Good job :)!

Most of the stuff these days looks a bit durpy. I find I either get used to them, or if I draw them I find new love for them. It took me a while to warm up to dialga. I drew a couple designs for it and it became one of my fav legendaries. Weird.

Thank you so kindly!!~ Your comment was so lovely :3

The overall design quality for pokemon has gotten worse from the first two generations, in my opinion. I'm not saying that the generations 3-5 are completely lame design-wise (though the last two are worse than 3rd gen), but they DO have much more ugly, plain hideous pokemon compared to the first two generations. Even Tangela, the pokemon I once considered to be the ugliest of them all pales in comparison to generation 4's Magnezone and Tangrowth. And THOSE are nothing compared to the horrendous excuse of a pokemon known as Garbodor T_T.

When it comes to the generations 1-3, it is difficult to come up with new team variations from my previous playthroughs since there are so many critters I wanna pick and still have a balanced team. With the generations 4 and 5, especially 5, the situation is the exact opposite: I wanna have a completely different team from the last playthrough but there are just so many UGLY pokemon in those games that there ain't many options available.

I warmed up to Dialga quite quickly, probably because it looked a whole lot cooler than Palkia (plus it's a darn steel/dragon pokemon and thus far more resistant than water/dragon type Palkia. How is that fair?)

I'm probably going to go with Froakie, or Chespin. I love all three starters so~ I'm also waiting for their evolutions to come out before making a final decision.
