The Great Pokemon Circle of Types by OddPenguin The Great Pokemon Circle of Types by OddPenguin
originally was planning on holding off sharing this until new years, but eh, if it's done, why not share it ?


enjoy, 88 pokemon total, all types included except normal (which is the center logo, and I don't really consider it a type, more like a lack of a type, plus, 17 doesn't divide well in a circle, so it had to be turned into only a symbol.

there's a pattern to the placement, one side super effecting the other

> = super effects < = super effected by

water > fire
bug < poison (generation 1 only)
ground > electric
ghost < dark
steel > rock
dragon < ice
fighting < psychic (messed up the pattern here, whoops >3<)
grass < flying


this really was a blast, and nice to have a good standalone art for this account now.

I geared toward placing types I like more on the outer circles, but types it super effected/get super effected by ending up having to go with them, so far as my type preferences it's jumbled.

for the type icons, some are from the card game, but the rest i had to make up. ones I made up are ground, rock, ice, ghost, flying, bug, and poison.

types that super effect have their badges on the left, types that are super effected have their badges on the right.

as for pokemon picking, mostly it was based on pokemon I like, but also did pokemon I figured would be cool to do in this style and such.


almost all of them you should (or I hope at least) be able to easily tell which pokemon they are. the only one you may be unsure of if in the dragon circle that's latios or latias. it is latias, and you can tell by how the head piece is, which is slightly different from latios far as where the eyes are and how they're shaped [link]

I based the spots on the primary type, which eliminated options in some of the circles, but kept the type of each wheel more focused


enjoy

I see an Aztec/Mayan calendar. Maybe it predicts Girintina's return or the triggering of the super mega-death weapon in X and Y.

there's been a whole batch of fairy weakness and strengths going around. not 100% confirmed, but the info is on a lot of reliable sites.

kind of op, it's weaknesses are the two most underused offensive moves, and the strengths are against more of the commonly used types. but yeah, good to know

did this around the time of the mayan apocalypse hype, and seeing all those mayan circles made me do this. I'm glad you like it, this has become my most popular piece and someday I'll get to revisiting it and fixing the little problems with it such as no normal type and the mess up of the flow pattern with fighting/psychic

Vulkabit Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah, It remided the mayans. naturraly this is very popular It was a great idea doing type table in a circle and you drew pokemons really great. Oh! I haven't noticed the problem on fighting/psychic X'D

OddPenguin Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013  Student Digital Artist
heh, it actually didn't take that long


yeah, it's not a big deal, it's just that fighting/psychic are on the wrong sides, they should be flipped as it messed up the pattern, but not noticeable unless you notice the pattern in the placement

I absolutely adore each Pokemon portrayed here. You managed to give each its unique form and personality in a tiny box with only black lines and shapes :clap:

Also, I nearly started crying when I saw Swalot. I was looking for the Poison types and was just about to sigh that Swalot goes unloved as usual and then... OHMYGAWDSWALOTD'AWWWWWW. Love the Swalot so much and would love to see one in your Nuzlocke. Swalot is one of my three favorite Pokemon ever because he looks like a boss :XD:

heh, swalot's got just the cutest mustache and mouth thing going for him, no way I couldn't feature him. heh heh, I think I know which pokemon you'll be giving for your entry then, interested in seeing what approach you take with the character :iconteheplz:

nope, it's the star in the center for the type. afterwards I realized I could have just made 1 normal type ring with 1 pokemon on it to keep the pattern and feature the type better, but too late now.
