Let it load a second, its a big gif. Wow this one took forever to get done. Tried a lot new here and really wanted to produce something spectacular. I hope you guys enjoy, here is the flavor text:

Groudon is among the very few surviving titans of old. There is thought to currently be only one Groudon left in the wild. There have been many stories claiming that Groudons were so mighty that they could shape continents and clear the skies, these of course are largely exaggerated. Groudon consumes large quantities of rock and digests specific minerals, expelling the remaining rock, super heated by his furnace like stomach, as lava. This has the effect of slightly altering the landscape. Groudon cannot actually cause the sun to super heat the atmosphere like proclaimed, his body produces waves of intense heat to his surroundings leading some to create the myth that he can control the sun. Little is known about their behavior, though its physiology might suggest aside from rock it is equipped to catch enormous fish or whales, as it possesses conical teeth and hook like claws on very powerful arms. The ecosystems in which Groudons have been discovered to once inhabited thrive yielding a very large diversity to the wildlife.

Magmar is the volcanic cousin of the much more common semi-aquatic Golduck. Though Magmars slightly more territorial and volatile than their cousins. There have been many documented attacks from Magmars, often as high as 300 burn victims a year claim to be attacked by a Magmar. Magmar is seen here fleeing the presence of Groudon with its young Magby precariously held by one ankle.

Magcargo and Slugma are terrestrial cephalopods, thought to be close relatives to Gastrodons. They are very common in volcanic cave systems. Though their bodies appear superficial soft and malleable, they can infact withstand and produce extreme temperatures. Slugma have even been seen hiding in plain sight atop a mound of lava. However there is a very rare subspecies with a silver coloration that cannot trick you, even though try really hard; they will always be losers.

Larvesta are the juvenile stage of the very impressive Volcarona. Volcarona are very dangerously near extinction as it can take as long as 59 months to full develop from a Larvesta stage. Larvesta are very large and thus very easy for predators to pick off when they undergo metamorphosis.

Torkoal are thought to be the cause of the severe decline in the Groudon population. Torkoal would move in herds akin to school of Carvanha, able to cleave all meat from a large animal in a very short period. There were migrations of as many as 800,000 Torkoals at one point. However the middle ages saw an end to the over populated Torkoal species as turtle shell soup became extremely popular. The species was depleted to the brink of extinction before it was made illegal to consume turtle shell soup. The Torkoal race is now on the return as their population grows slow and steady. Is this Torkoal the harbinger of this Groudon's demise?

He kinda looks a little dull, especially in comparison to other 'realistic' renditions of the character. Many of these alternative are able keep his iconic features intact while creating still creating a life-like look.

The duck Pokemon (who's name I keep forgetting) looks great though.

I know it wasn't intended. I mean if someone 10 years ago uploaded a drawing of Raichu but it was drawn squat and flabby. And I happened to come across it yesterday, I'd still compare it to Dedenne regardless. I don't mean to be rude, and I apologize for that. I can be simply brutally observant at times.
