Fookid is the baby form of Fatte, who evolves into Glotten. Fookid is the only one in this family who is so bitterly pissed off. He’s like American Box Art Kirby. Like, literally that’s all he is. I wonder why the baby’s so angry, when the fully evolved form is so happy? I’m sure we could come up with a funny story.
Oh hell yes. Airi is the baby form of Amairi, which evolves into Ograiri, one of my favorite Quartz designs. Airi is a slightly LESS fucked up version of Amairi’s anatomy, and I like the different colored ears. Its eyes, however, are the most soulless pits I’ve ever gazed upon. I took some creative liberties and busted out my shoujo manga skillz to give it eyes that do the sprite justice.
Gusvolts is the baby form of Covolts, which evolves into Lucivolts! For the longest time I thought Covolts was the larva form, because I didn’t realize that it had a baby form. I should’ve noticed, since Covolts is the Pikachu replacement. So anyways, now that I know that Covolts is the cocoon stage, that makes it make…exactly as much sense. It’s still weird looking.
But anyways, Gusvolts itself is really boring! After seeing some more interesting worm designs in this generation, I’m underwhelmed.
So this thing’s mouth is kinda gross. I don’t know why its mouth is outlined in brown. It looks like it’s covered in dried blood, to me. I guess it’s probably a predator so a bloody mouth makes sense, but I don’t know what Baro was actually going for there. I like it’s tail, although I’m not sure what those fins are supposed to actually look like. The shape of them is really odd. I thought it was supposed to be like an axe blade, but after trying to map out the lines, it wound up looking more like half a pelvis. It’s neat either way.
It’s a sperm. I assume the tail lights up, since this is the Chinchou replacement. My boyfriend says that the line on its head that cuts through the eye should be its mouth, and when it opens its mouth the eye should flop out. Sure hon.
Um, maybe you should use different Popkas names for every Yu-Gi-Oh series? I kinda have ideas for some "Hocruxes do Cardgames", "Egyptians do Magic(: the Gathering)", and "Chibi-Teen and the Hocrux". For GX, there's "The Darkness is Alive!", "Cthulu plays Cardgames", "Dating Sim Card Game", and "Cardwarts". For 5Ds, there's "Cardgames so Edgy", "Poorly Planned Dystopia", and "Why Did I Keep Watching?" (5Ds sucked). Zexal could be "Magical Boy Anime", "Cardcaptor Yuma", or "Space War".
My tentative names are Mummy Skulls, Mummy Skull High School Host Club, and Akira Skulls
That’s all I got
Awesome, we’re starting to get into the evolutions for 1st gen Quartzes! Tostol evolves from Fungio, who evolves from Stulo. They’re the Zubat replacements. I liked Stulo, and thought Fungio was okay but not different enough to be a suitable evolution. Tostol fixes the problem pretty well! I like the silliness of putting mushrooms on his mushroom, and the bits of yellow make it interesting. I miss the softer, blue-violet color of the previous evos, but having the final evolution gain a darker color makes a lot of sense.
The details on the face are really cluttered in the sprite. Like, if I wasn’t zoomed in at 400% when I was referencing it, I’d have no idea what I was looking at. The overall concept is kind of nice, but it’s executed not so well. I think it’s fun that we’ve got a worm poke that just evolves into a bigger worm, instead of pupating into a butterfly or something.
We’re about a dozen episodes into Yugioh. My favorite character is this chick’s hair.
HEY IT’S GRANDPA. I mean, not really, but that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw it. I don’t know if those lines on its face are supposed to be antennae or a lower eyelid or what, so I interpreted it as a long curly mustache. Because he’s a grandpa, you see.
