It's sort of a combination of Darwinism and Cockfighting.
About this creation
I think Pokémon was the biggest commercial influence on my childhood aside from Legos. I spent hundreds of hours collecting cards, playing the games, watching VCRs of the show at sleepovers, drawing up my own fake evolutions and whatnot. Anyways I'm really excited about this big Pokémon meme running about MOCpages right now, looks like things have changed a lot since the day when the Lego Pokémon Group was the only place for us nerds to gather. Keep it up, guys! Starting off my compilation with Pikachu, the famous electric mouse. Lately I've restarted my original Red game, spent a very long time finding a Pikachu in Viridian Forest. He shreds the countless Pidgey, Zubat and Tentacool legions that the game throws at you. I used a piece of tape to make the details like the eyes and cheeks, Pika looked too plain without it.
Pikachu, with trainer Red! Have you got what it takes?
Caterpie, the bug Pokémon. Pretty cute, not very good though. It's evolution Butterfree, is good in the early game, especially for catching the lighting-fast Abra.
Bug Catcher would like to battle! You guys probably don't remember this, but back in the days of Red Blue and Yellow, Psychic types were weak only to bug and ghost moves. Every ghost Pokémon was part Poison and week to psychic, though, so if you wanted to defeat your friend's lv. 100 Mewtwo in a link battle, there were two strategies: Either get a really high leveled bug like Paras or Beedrill, or get a Jolteon and teach it Pin Missle. Thankfully, the new dark type put an end to this lunacy in Gold and Silver.
TL;DR, old-school link battles were unfair.
Tangela, the bizzare walking mass of vines. This model was the most fun to make out of the compilation. Tangela was the only pure grass Pokémon in RBY, effectively removing a weakness to Psychic.
A lass with her pet Tangela.
Farfetch'd was a really sick ninja-duck from the original 151. Sadly, you could only get him in a trade, and he was stuck with the retarded nickname "DUX". Still, he gets a tip of the hat for being the only creature that can wield a leek and still be a hardass.
Yes, in the original games bird keepers had an outrageous mohawk. Go figure.
Finally, the one you have been waiting for, Porygon! This rare Pokémon is entirely man made, and doesn't need to eat or breathe. It can be won as a prize in the Celadon City Casino for 9999 coins.
This model was notoriously expensive to make, Fabuland pink and light aqua parts are both rare and expensive. Still I think Porygon came out excellently. Like Pikachu, I used some tape to make the pupil of the eye.
Of course, I had to make a super nerd with his cyber Pokémon.
I hope you all enjoyed looking at these, they were great fun to build. I have plans for a few more minifig scale Pokémon, I think I will do a Hoenn series next.
Thanks for looking!
I am so glad there are people that played the original Pokemon that still like Pokemon. Every one I know "grows out of it." Hogwash. Anyway, your Pokemon are mindblowing! Tangela is definitely the winner here, though Porygon is good, too. An since I'm an entomologist, I can't leave out good ol' Caterpie! Great MOC!
Awesome, these are some of the best I have seen! Since to see some old school pokemon references too, I still play PM Blue with my kids today...but have not been able to keep up with much of the new ones after the original 151.
WOW! These are amazing! In my next pokemon compilation, I am also including farfetch'd, porygon and caterpie! What a coincidence! I was trying to make a tanglea, but I gave up. I figured that tanglea was just about impossible...that is until your tanglea came up! amazing compilation! Also, anyone reading this can answer me, but how do you get the photos to be big in a single line down the page? mine come out small and in rows which I dont want.
I agree. They're well built all round (even though some of them are taped..) These pokemon certainly give me the feel of the old Pokemon games. But I could never figure out how to make Tangela, so great work on yours!
