-Nidoking- by arvalis -Nidoking- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


Nidoking was always a pretty cool looking pokemon, though I never used him in a game until I played FireRed last year. This Nidoking here is grumpy because he has been left with the kids. There is also a mischievous Pikachu that has taken advantage of the Nidoking's colorblindness and snuck its way into the family. You can see the process recording over at My Livestream Channel

I always thought Nidoking was too short for something so awesome-looking.

That being said, I wouldn't want to tussle with that thing!

Really cute edition.
Loving the little Nido offspring seeking protection underneath the Nidoking.
They look good, Nidoking looks good, Pikachu looks good.

They all look good.

It says in the description--Nidoking is colorblind, thus cannot tell Pikachu's color from that of the babies

Aww, I loved Nidoking and Nidoqueen in Pokemon Yellow. Pikachu was useless with defeating Brock so I always got a Nidoran male and evolved it into Nidorino to double kick Brock's rock Pokemon to death! It would be awesome to see a pick with Nidoqueen and King with their babies.

I agree, great design and creativity but in my opinion it doesn't do the game version justice, I imagines nidoking as a behemoth that could go head to head with tyranitar or aggron but he looks way small and not how I'd imagine him at all. That's just my opinion though great creativity and great effort. Cheers to you man I can't wait to see more!
P.S. Do Sceptile! Always has been one of my favorite pokemon and I would love to see if you would make him with that modern raptor look that's just badass!

The only problem with that is nidoking is officially only 4'7" in the games.

You can't use the heights listed in the games (and early Trading Card Game) as evidence. They have Charizard listed at a meager 1.7 meters, and he's supposed to be big enough to ride!

Like some kind of giant sloth-rhino? Interesting, looks a lot less aggressive than I always saw it. Of course I'm sure it could still easily destroy anyone.
