GET THE REALISTIC POKEMON ART BOOK

Commissioned by lazyhuskie

Though Noivern has long been assumed to be a true dragon, only recently has it been discovered it is very closely related to Swoobats.  Noiverns are capable of emitting a booming burst of noise reaching 140 decibels, powerful enough to knock many small cave dwelling Pokemon unconscious.  Being the largest flying predator in it's habitat, Noiverns are quite rare as each fully grown Noivern require miles of cave systems in their territory.  Noivern and its juveniles, Noibats, unlike their cousins Golbats and Swoobats have retained the ability to maneuver on land.  As Noiverns are very frail, unable to employ any physical attacks, terrestrial locomotion proves invaluable should one of their wings need to heal after a scrape with larger cave dwellers.  Here we see a large male Noivern asserting dominance over the goofy ass Swoobats.

Noibats can be quite clumsy, often falling from the ceiling should they be awoken by a passing trainer or hiker.  They are abandoned by their mother at a very early age, left to wander deep into their caverns searching for food.  They are very inquisitive by nature, often inspecting all manner of Pokemon that hide in the deep caverns they call home.  Noibats are very ambitious when it comes to fighting, trying attacks that they know they can't use properly yet, such as dragon pulse.

Swoobats and their young, Woobats, are far more common than the elusive Noivern.  Though the species has been classified as having psychic abilities, they are a far cry from the likes of the might Alakazam or Spoink.  It it unclear why Swoobats developed psychic typing, but it is proposed that they communicate with one another over long distances as they appear to know when their partners are threatened even if miles away.  When under care of a trainer, Woobats and Swoobats are extremely friendly and well behaved pokemon.

Where there are bat pokemon, there are Joltiks.  These small arachnid pokemon are the infants of Galvantula.  They not yet capable of producing their own electric charges, instead nestling into the fur of fluffy bat pokemon to create static charges.  Maintaining a static charge is important to the development of a newborn Joltik.  Galvantulas yield large egg sacs as most Joltik will not reach adulthood, easily picked off by many predators.

Excadrill is a small, though fearsome denizen of many cave systems.  They are equipped with massive mineral coated claws that they use to tunnel through earth at an alarming pace.  Excadrill are a common cause of cavern collapse and rock slides.  They aren't very smart, but they are very hardy.

Holy shit its a shiny Zubat, catch that thing you turkey!

I'd be very interested to see what you do with the Ralts evolutionary family, especially when you consider the opportunity for male Kirlias to evolve into Gallade through the use of a Dawn Stone. That aside, I'm a big fan of your work and the descriptions you write explaining the art. Keep it up my good man, keep it up.
