PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE

Here is the seemingly much anticipated Blastoise. He was always my least favorite of the original three starters, but I'll take him over Swampert any day. The big challenger with a more realistic take on Blastoise is of course, his cannons. After spending some time researching animals that use projectiles, a squid's jet really seem to fit the idea. Blastoise is supposed to be able to aim his cannons and fire water jets to propel himself in a direction, very much like a real life squid. So he intakes large supplies of water through his mouth and stores it in a specialized organ in his chest under the shell. Blastoise primarily eats shellfish, earning his nickname as the shellfish Pokemon, he holds onto a Shellder in this case and blasts water to help him pull it off its rocky home. Squirtles start out primarily aquatic and as they grow they eventually become semi terrestrial and lose their developed swimming tail in favor for a heavier counterweight tail. Wartortles spend much of their time drifting motionlessly after meals to facilitate the tremendous growth, sometimes for months. As a result coral sea fans often take root on them, especially on their head. Also, Krabby is a dick, look at him, being an ass.

From the size and build of the trainer silhouette, I guess he's supposed to be an adult, between late teens and twenties. Because the realistic Pokemon are more like Actual Dangerous Wild Animals, do trainers in your realistic universe start training them at a much older age than 10 years old. It just seems to me that with how your versions of pokemon look, someone 18 or older would be better qualified than a mere 10 year old kid.

Yeah my trainer silhouette is a guy in his early twenties, seemed more appropriate to at least graduate high school before trying to wrangle dragons.

Maybe a kid Could handle a Charmander, a Squirtle, or a Bulbasaur, but I highly doubt that a 10 year old could handle a Charizard, a Blastoise or a Venusaur, they way you draw them.
