Please allow a few moments for the animation to load


Finally I got around to doing my favorite Pokemon.  Tyrantrum has edged out Bulbasaur as my all time favorite.  Its almost like it was made for me, it's a T. rex, red, and a dragon, which are like all of my favorite things.  I've been wanting to draw him for months.  Also, I decided to do a stupid amount of work on it, look at all those scales and bones, I'm pretty dumb.  At least it turned out pretty awesome.  Now the flavor text:

Tyrantrum is the largest prehistoric terrestrial carnivore currently known to science.  First discovered over a century ago, only recently recently has there been the technology to revive the fossilized bone.  Paleontologists had only started to theorize that it may have had some feathers only to be completely surprised by the ostentatious made of feathers adorning its shoulders.  Another astonishing characteristic was the bold scaly beard-like soft tissue.  It appears that Tyrantrums use this "beard" to intimidate rivals by flaring it out making their already enormous jaws appear that much larger.  Females of the species often have much smaller beards and seldom use them for display.  Living Tyrantrums have earned the nickname "despot" as they are a very aggressive species, often seen hassling all manner of other pokemon and forcing them out of its territory.  Tyrantrum is the best pokemon so he gets his way.

Tyrunt fossils were long thought to be a related, but entirely different from Tyrantrum.  It has only recently through the aid of revived fossil advancements that it was discovered Tyrunts are in fact young Tyrantrums.  Much like their older counterparts, Tyrunts are very belligerent.  In fact they are known to erupt into fits of selfish tantrums when they perceive that they aren't getting their way.  They are also known to be mischievous little bastards.  As shown here a cocksure Tyrunt has coaxed a Bastiodon into attacking him knowing full well that daddy Tyrantrum would come to the rescue and kill it.  I bet that Tyrunt just wanted Bastiodon steaks for dinner, what cheeky little cutey.

Bastiodon has been confirmed to be the ancestor to the modern day Aggron.  Bastiodon are especially defensive, sporting dense scaly armor and boney osterderms for added protection.  In maturity, Bastiodon tend to be reclusive, wandering in search of food.  They exhibit a very grumpy personality and dont take shit from nobody, you here that.  Although Tyrantrum's mighty quakes might be a problem for Bastiodon...

You can see this without animation here.

I love the T-Rexy feel your Tyrantrum has. You captured the Pokemon's design beautifully, you got a T-Rex, added feathers, a bony crest, and a beard and BOOM! Tyrantrum is born. XD

This is absolutely amazing!

The realistic twist on Pokemon is an interesting concept, and I love the animation that lets you see it's fossil, which makes sense since it's a fossil Pokemon.

Keep up the good work!

I'm in the same boat as you; as a lover of the color red and T-rexes, Tyrantrum is most definitely my favorite Pokemon. And you absolutely did it justice. This is amazing.

I just realized that I haven't commented on this, yet. Hehe, probably should've done so when I first saw this, cause it looks spectacular! A job well done! ^^

And, I wrote this for your birthday; when you got time (for I know you are a busy man), check it out: fav.me/d9icpuc

I'm not sure if this is deliberate or a mistake, but I believe T-red had a secondary rib cage not connected to the rest of the skeleton protecting the bottom of its abdomen. It's very rare to find full specimens which is why they are very rarely found on full skeletons

Its not a second rib cage, its called gastralia and they are rarely used in fossil mounts so I elected to go without them ;p

you should do its sauropod counter part, which I complete forgot the name of! :3
I would love to see what you do with:
A: the fact that its a sauropod, which live in cold climates, which would most likely NOT HAVE TREES, despite its long neck.
B: Its ability to disperse cold air.

As always, you've done an excellent job, depicting Pokemon as living, breathing creatures.

BTW, at the risk of a boast...I managed to breed two Tyrantrum with 6 perfect IVs! A male and a female!

But the height in pokemon...so bad...

Tyrannosaurus Rex, 13 feet all at the hips in a stance parallel to the ground.

Tyrantrum apparently stands upright and is only 8 feet tall. THIS DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!
