The Gym Leaders project is me drawing myself and a group of my close friends as Pokemon gym leaders! We each chose our favourite type and three pokemon of that type to be our team (excluding legendaries and starter pokemon).
I meant to start drawing these mid last year, but I got distracted and filed the idea away for a while. The announcement of Pokemon X/Y reminded me of it, so here’s the first one finally done!
Rhianne loves machinery and futuristic stuff, so she’s the Steel Gym Leader! She has a Steelix, a Mawile and a Magnezone as her team. ( ・ω・)
If you like the idea, you should have a go at making yourself into a gym leader using our project rules! It’d be cool if you tagged it ‘gym leader project’ if you did, then I could see your team too!
I know that Ivysaur (#002, Grass/Poison) doesn’t have that many leaves but he looks cool like that!! Let it be!! Roserade (#407, Grass/Poison) is my other main choice, I mean, look at it, it’s such a cool Pokémon!
As honorable mention, I put Snivy (#495, Grass). It’s a cute and cool-looking Pokémon!
I don’t have much to say about this! It’s the same deal that I’ve had in some of the past types - it was a bit hard choosing a Pokémon or its evolved/pre-evolved counterpart, I love all of those SPOOKABOLIC ghosts almost equally! They’re Gengar (#094, Ghost/Poison), Haunter (#093, Ghost/Poison), Litwick (#607, Ghost/Fire) and Lampent (#608, Ghost/Fire)
It was hard choosing this one as well, I love all four of those Pokémon almost equally. Krokorok (#552, Dark/Ground) is like a super cool-looking Kremling, Murkrow (#198, Dark/Flying) is an old hag witch and her broom made into a crow, Umbreon (#197, Dark) is one of my favorite Eevee evolutions, if not my favorite one, and Weavile (#461, Dark/Ice) is a welcome evolution to an already awesome Pokémon. Consider them all at the same “tier” rather than me liking more the ones that were my main choice!
