Pikachu Ripoff Conga Line by Mewitti Pikachu Ripoff Conga Line by Mewitti
TUMBLR REBLOG LINK

Whenever I'm drawing serious things I get these irresistible urges to take breaks and cheer up with something tooth-rotting and this kind of stuff is what results. Maybe I can make it into a journal skin or something??

Yes Marril is very aware that they don't belong with the other Electric types but they get a spot here anyway because of how convinced everyone used to be that Marril was actually 'Pikablu'.

This has TOTALLY made my day, no, my week!! The colour pallet is just fantastic in this and all of the little poke-rodents are just precious!!
Especially Pachirisu... because, Pachirisu just rocks.
And also according to others if I was a pokemon, I would most likely be a Pachirisu... xD

THE TAIL, OKAY? IT'S AMAZING!! ;_;

Umm
This picture looks great but
I don't think they are "rip offs"
Don't scream at me, too, okay? I've had ENOUGH of "BAWWW (insert pokemon here) IS A PIKACHU RIP OFF1!!!111!!!" (No offense!)
Just because they're another cute mouse pokemon with colored cheeks doesn't mean they're a "pikachu ripoff."
If you do scream at me, I'll just ignore you. Pikachu is not the holy grail of Pokemon.

I don't harbor any ill will towards these cuties; I love all of them. It was meant as an affectionate joke. ;)

They are totally ripoffs tho

I do get what you mean, though. It's frustrating when people gripe and hate on such adorable Pokemon.

Pichu's a ripoff? I thought it was a pre-evo! :XD:

Ha!  My brother was just talking about this the other day!  He was like, "great, now people are going to have a whole team of 'pikachus'... except you can't because of plusle and minum" (or w/e their names are, I never get them right >.>; )

And yes, marill IS the gen 2 version of pikachu xD  I just figured it was suppose to be an extended joke about the whole pikachu surfing thing....

Also, Pichu might have been designed for the original, gen 1 version of the game, but I can't remember, exactly -- because there were some pokemon ("baby" versions) that were suppose to be included but were left out.

Great work as always, and I love that polkadot background <3

Very cute.  I'm wondering, though - even some bits are left out from the others color-wise too, why such a drastic color difference for plusle and minun?

Mostly because I wasn't orginally including to add blue and red colors at first. I could probably go back and make them + the Pika cheeks + Marill's ears all normally colored iiif I felt like it.

MarissaBlackwing Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay, that's what I thought at first but Pachirisu's light blue would have worked well for Minun as well, so I thought I'd ask.  Admittedly, it WOULD have been weirder to have Minun but not Plusle fully colored.

So you're saying Raichu is a ripoff of Pikachu?
Interesting

littaly Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Well you put pichu there, which is a part of it's evolutionary line, so that's like saying Squirtle is a ripoff of Wartortle. 

And Dedenne is more of a ripoff of Raichu than Pikachu.

:iconmewitti:
Mewitti Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Also, I sounded snippy both above and below and I'm sorry about that... I use 'ripoff' affectionately because I adore all these Pokemon. I'm just very amused at how religiously Nintendo has upheld the 'Pikachu-like electric rodent' trope over the years. =)
Reply
:iconmewitti:
Mewitti Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Except that Squirtle was obviously created as part of a cohesive evolutionary line (same as Raichu). Pichu was tacked on a whole gen later as a 'Pikachu variation' gimmick that was then religiously upheld every gen after that. 

And yeah, Dedenne is so ridiculously similar to Raichu it's not even funny.
Reply
:iconlittaly:
littaly Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013  Student Digital Artist
yeah thats true, but Gen 2 came so early on it seems that Pichu was there the whole time as compared to the others I guess. 

Dedenne is.. yeah. But it's like supposed to be super tiny like a legit hamster which is the only reason I'm starting to like it haha. And its no problem; i figured you used ripoff affectionately which is why I commented with such a... Non-serious tone?And it is pretty amusing I kind of want to see how long they can keep it up

I am trying to keep the Nuzlocke as amusing as possible but considering where it left off, it's obviously addressing some uncool stuff right now.

I'd say do what you feel it right. Ya it's important to not stray too far from tone but if you feel too much obligation to do something then it might come across as insincere.

Also I forgot to say good job on the drawing. I'm an idiot -A-. It's great as usual.

My comic tone has about as much consistency as my art style... but at least now I'll know what to keep an eye on for future projects. And thank you, I'm glad you like it! It's fun to play with 'cute simple' style now and then.

Uh... Sinn and I have been planning an original webcomic for some time. It's set within a futuristic MMORPG. In a couple years, once the Nuzlocke is done, perhaps we'll get working on it (or perhaps we'll go with a different idea; who knows). In addition, I have approximately eighty billion assorted short comic/story concepts that'll greatly benefit from all the stumbling and mistakes I've learned from on the Nuzlocke.

Awesome, looking forward to what you have to tell. I myself have been working on an original idea of my own. Although it isn't too well developed yet. Think onepiece in D&D-style fantasy. Given how long the nuzlocke is proving to take I might start it alongside the nuzlocke at some point assuming I can recruit an additional artist or two for inking and what not.
