funny little onion man
big-headed lad, calyrex!
Small, random, unexplained details in the crown tundra that are slowly driving me nuts:
Whenever anything uses hyper beam there’s like one frame right after the animation plays where everything is hypersaturated then it immediately goes back to normal.
When dynamaxed kyurem’s body (minus the ice) is fully gray. Its eyes, head spike, and wing spikes only glow yellow when it attacks. I can’t help feeling like this makes so much more sense than how it normally looks, cause kyurem has never felt like the gray pokemon the same way zekrom and reshi feel like the black/white pokemon. Aside from their eyes and a couple accents zekrom and reshi are all black/white. Kyurem has never looked all gray to me tho, it’s gray and blue with very visible bright yellow accents. Here it actually looks like a gray dragon. With ice on it. But this doesn’t carry over and when you look at its summary it has the yellow parts lit up like usual.
Kyurem represents emptiness and the lack of yin/yang, truth/ideals, etc. so it would make sense for this cold empty creature to be sorta powered down most of the time and only show these bright parts when attacking. AND. On top of that! Zekrom and reshiram don’t show their blue and red accents until they attack either!! They’re the ones with all the energy and giant generator tails, and they are powered down most of the time! Of course kyurem would follow suit. Why hasn’t it always looked like this?? I’m genuinely confused, cause with how much care and investment seemed to be put into the gen 5 games there’s no way this is the first time anyone has thought of this. It makes way too much sense. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if you told me this was a minor design thing that was considered or planned but tweaked in the final games. Maybe to make kyurem a little distinct from the cover legends or something.
Calyrex has blue dynamax clouds. This is never explained, never hinted at, never even mentioned. No, not even on those stone tablets scattered around. I read them all cause I thought I had to for the quest trust me there’s nothing. The normal dynamax clouds are red because dynamax energy comes from wishing stars/eternatus who has a red aura. So if they’re blue that means… ???
The energy calyrex, and only calyrex, is using to dynamax isn’t coming from wishing stars/eternatus? What IS it from then??? Something with a blue aura? There’s nothing with a blue aura that makes things dynamax. Unless there’s an undiscovered legendary out there that has similar powers to eternatus, like some sorta anti eternatus. Or maybe calyrex’s psychic powers are so strong it doesn’t have to use wishing stars and can straight up dynamax itself with its own energy. And the blue is calyrex’s aura and there’s nothing else to it. That could be all it is. But regardless, W H A T
I’m sure he’s fine. Calyrex’s whole thing is growth and healthy crops and fertile land, so I feel like he wouldn’t be able to give Peony amnesia or something. And I’m sure he wouldn’t want to anyway.
I didn’t think to try that, that’s awesome. It makes me happy to know that.
Calyrex Shadow Rider. I really loved doing this after 16 years without painting something like this
A human calyrex because I can. Or calyrex gijinka, whatever you prefer.
