Autumn's Call by endless-whispers Autumn's Call by endless-whispers
An extremely belated prize for ~bassmegapokemonlover for entering my contest over...2 years ago? I was asked to draw Gardevoir in an autumn scene. The initial sketch was drawn a year ago, but I've recently fallen into a slump where I can't seem to motivate myself to draw backgrounds - grass is especially difficult for me.

However, I was inspired to complete this thanks to the recent anouncement that Gardevoir is among the few Pokémon being retconned for the new Fairy type (a terrible name for a Pokémon type if you ask me). I'm not too excited with the introduction of a new type so late in a well-established franchise, but Gardevoir is one of my favourite Pokémon from the 3rd gen, so any boost for its usability is welcome.

New types aren't bad, it opens the franchise up to new ideas, new possibilities, and new moves/pokemon. It depends on how they use it and implement it in game, now making Gardevoir one was not a smart idea in my opinion..

Personally, I'm never acknowledging Fairy as a type. Especially not when they're already taking missteps with it and it's just such an unneeded retcon and failure of a nostalgia grab.

They needed to bring down the stupid "Dragon-type Master Race" somehow.

Then give it more weaknesses or fewer overwhelming strengths, simple as that.
