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 items...at 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!
