So the last Patreon poll I did for the ‘dex saw Riolu win in a landslide (Riolu had 22 votes, second place had 9). This entry completes this evolutionary line in the male version of the Near Pokédex (though neither Riolu nor Lucario have shown up in the female version yet). Riolu’s not hugely different from Lucario in terms of design and anatomy, so there wasn’t much difference in how I handled the redesign here from when I did NPM448.
So here’s Eevee, who tied with Squirtle in the last Near Pokédex poll I ran. Now that they’re both done, I’ll be moving on to an entry for the female Pokédex (which one has yet to be determined). Hope you all like this entry. It didn’t go exactly as I’d hoped, so it’s difficult for me to look at it with fresh eyes, but I think it’s at least still cute.
So I had a poll like usual to determine the next Near Pokédex M entry a while back, and it came down to a draw between Squirtle and Eevee. I decided the only right thing to do is both of them, so the next Near Pokédex entry (whenever that comes) will also be a male entry. In the meantime, here’s Squirtle, finally rounding out the Gen 1 starters for both NPM and NPF (though their evolutions are far from complete just yet). I always have problems drawing anthro turtles. I don’t know how their shells are supposed to work, and just like with the NPF Squirtle I ended up kinda winging it and hoping for the best. I’ll probably end up doing the same for any other future turtle Pokémon that show up for the ‘dex.
So the last Near Pokédex poll over on Patreon was really close! Machop won out in the end, though. I’ve been wanting to try and get a few more of these Pokédex entries out, so I didn’t waste any time starting this one. Looking at the basic Machop design, I thought it’d be cute to show the little guy’s phat booty. I think the final result turned out pretty cute!
It’s been a while since the last Pokédex entry, but here’s Sylveon! Sylveon was selected by my supporters on Patreon back when I wrapped up the last entry, and they’ve already picked who the next entry will be for NPF (when I get the chance to do the next entry, of course).
I had a lot of fun with this one. All of the Eeveelutions are going to make great entries in both NPM and NPF, but Sylveon has an especially cute design that I enjoyed working with. I hope you like this little guy, too.
