Your design was definitely one to stand out of the crowd, there aren't many mantises in the pokéworld and they could always use reinforcements. Its use of its four arms along with its pink hide particularly draws out the psychic aspect of the design, and it fitted all abilities except Weak Armor gallantly. But for me, the excessive use of garments and symbols made its appearance unfit in the long run, namely the necklace, the swirls on the skirt, and the orb which just happens to float there.
But even though I can objectively tell why it didn't make it to the finals, it'd be a crying shame if this design wouldn't see any use, be it with this set of types and abilities or otherwise. I really like it.
You're drawings are pretty awesome Im impressed :p I was wondering if I could make a request, it seems simple enough, could you possibly combine wobbuffet and oddish into one pokemon? Use whoever's body, just basically however you want, one of my friends favorite pokemon are those two so I want to crochet it for her, but im just not sure how that would look like. Thanks in advance if you do decide to do it
Doran! My friend! Glad to see you still around here. :)
I'm disappointed though that you don't sprite anymore. :p But your artwork is amazing though. Those fakemon are very nice!
I would sprite them fore you, but since you are already a very talented spriter yourself, that isn't needed. ;)
