And another one from Skarmorysilver, who challenged me to come up with the damn thing in the first place!

pokemondayandnight:

RAIDENNE (Raiden [Thunder and lightning in Japanese]+Antenne [Antenna in French])

THIS IS A WIP. THE FULL POKEDEX WILL BE AVAILABLE LATER.

Thought I’d make a quick little something for pokemaniacal! The story here is that I challenged him to try and redeem one of his least favorite Pokemon from X and Y, Dedenne, into something genuinely creative. He came up with a Robin Hood-style folk hero with a tail like a bowstring, so I decided to go and put it on paper. There’s a bit of jerboa in the evolved form as well, just because it sounds like “gerbil”. The shiny colors are the same as Dedenne’s except with a darker shade of brown, cream instead of orange, and Robin Hood-style green instead of red.

I was actually going to look for some Japanese folk heroes to use as a source for the name, but the pun on characters named Raiden was too good to ignore. XD
