Gonna put the gijinkas on hold as I update them a bit.
I'm changing around the background styles.
Nothing big really, but it should help with legibility and stuff.
While I'm at it, I'll probably also redraw some of the earlier gijinkas to match my current style.

Now he wears a raincoat!
And for some reason, he removed the sleeves because he thinks it feels more comfortable.
And he added pockets.

NEW Pokemon Gijinka Project 465 Tangrowth
Back in Gen 1, Tangela was the only pure Grass type Pokemon.
Many of the others were part Poison type, even when there's no obvious poisonous attributes to them (Bulbasaur line).
It really makes me wonder what they considered to be Poison back in the days.

NEW Pokemon Gijinka Project 338 Solrock
Compared to my previous design, she doesn't wear a chain of beads over her face.
They are instead, buttons along the front and back of her shirt.
I do hope they do something with Solrock and Lunatone in Pokemon Sun and Moon. It'd be a waste not to.
NEW Pokemon Gijinka Project 211 Qwilfish by JinchuurikiHunter
NEW Pokemon Gijinka Project 211 Qwilfish
Compared to my previous design, this guy doesn't wear a single slipper (simply because that's impractical).
Instead, it's a pouch thingy.
...I'm starting to think there are lots of things I don't know the name for.
Well, let's see. At the moment of writing, I've drawn 341 gijinkas, but due to form differences, the actual number of Pokemon represented is a bit fewer than that.
I've still got a long way to go, but I feel this is as good a time as any to list out the order of which I'm going through the Pokemon.

As you've no doubt noticed, I'm going through the first 5 gens concurrently, one Pokemon at a time, then uploading them in batches of 5. The 6th gen had not been released when I started this project so they haven't been represented, but rest assured, once the 5 gens have been completed, I'll be drawing, probably in this particular order:

- Redesigns of the starters (they need to be cleaned up a lot)
- Kalos Pokemon
- Mega Evolutions (but these guys will be randomly uploaded)

Several Pokemon have form differences. If you've been following me since I first drew Unown, then you know I'm aiming to be extremely comprehensive with this project. So which other Pokemon forms will I be drawing?

- All 4 Castforms
- All 4 Deoxys
- All 6 Rotoms
- All 4 Deerlings and Sawsbucks
- Both Giratinas
- Both Shaymins
- Both Keldeos
- Both Meloettas
- Both Tornaduses, Thunderuses, and Landoruses
- All 3 Kyurems
- Both Aegislashes
- All 4 Pumpkaboos and Gourgeists
- All 5 Flabebes, Floettes, and Florgeses
- All 18 (oh god) Arceuses
- All 20 (sweet merciful heavens) Vivillons
- The 5 cosplay Pikachus

I will not be drawing the following:

- Alternate Spinda forms (way too unfeasible, and not interesting in the least)
- Alternate Genesect forms (the only visual change is the colour of the drives, and that's not gonna be interesting either)
- Notched ear Pichu (change is too minor and not interesting)
- Flying Pikachu or Surfing Pikachu (they're just Pikachus with extra least cosplay Pikachu had outfit changes)
- Shiny Pokemon of any kind (unfeasible)

I guess this is as good a time as any to also explain the restrictions and limitations when I design my gijinkas. 

1. All gijinkas shall use the original Pokemon's colour schemes.
2. All gijinkas shall take on the facial features of the original Pokemon (eyes and mouth especially. Nose is optional).
3. Genders of gijinkas shall be based on the original Pokemon (fixed gender Pokemon retain their genders. Other gijinka will use genders that match the general impression given by the Pokemon).
4. Refrain from giving the gijinkas non-humanoid characteristics (tails, wings, cat ears, etc).
5. Refrain from giving the gijinkas weapons or other non-fashion items to represent physical features (purses, headphones, and backpacks are considered fashion).
6. Gijinkas from the same evolution line will retain the same gender and race (as though they were growing up). Exceptions to this are Dawn Stone evolutions (who should be thought of more as step-brothers/sisters) and the Eeveelutions (who are more like a whole family of step-siblings)
7. Gijinkas that have multiple forms will retain the same gender, race, and physical build (as though they were the same person trying on different outfits). Exceptions to this are gijinkas whose forms are determined by gender (who are more like fraternal twins).
8. Mega Evolutions shall follow the same rules as alternate forms.

So, in closing, I'm in this project for the long haul, and I hope you guys understand just how I'm approaching it. Let's see this to the end together!

Your artwork is great. I love how you have made the people multiculturalised (I think that's a word). You should make the original starter pokemon, like charmander, bulbasaur, treeko and those other ones. I can just imagine.
JinchuurikiHunter Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think the word you're looking for is multiracial.
But yes, the world of Pokemon is so vast; I feel it'd be kinda silly to have everyone be the same race.
Different Pokemon give me different images.
Also, I'm pretty sure I already did the starters.
All of them in fact...they were the first ones I drew.

Oops, sorry I must have missed them while I was browsing your gallery. You have given me an idea on what I should make next. I just wish I could upload to here! Sorry for the mistake.
JinchuurikiHunter Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

You probably have so many people telling you, but your artwork is amazing! You're sooo good at what you do, and I love the way you change the Pokemon to be more like people, you're so clever. :heart: :D
JinchuurikiHunter Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks! I still think my art could use some improvement though. Being on Deviantart reinforces that opinion.
PokeYokai Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
JH, I have one question for you: will you continue to show the powers of each Pokemon or are you done with it? Just asking!
JinchuurikiHunter Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh my, I didn't think anyone would still be interested in that.
I do keep a list of each gijinka's abilities that I've decided on, but figured that that was something only I was interested in.
So I decided I wouldn't post them with the gijinka designs.
It's sort of a personal trivia of some sort.
Hm...if there are enough people interested in it, I might post them in the descriptions or something.
