Already happy with the sketches so I wanted to post a wip of this too~
It’s my fun little project to create my own interpretations of the Johto Gym Leaders’ character designs. Their outfits are all based on those of their original sprites in GSC, which while less glamorous perhaps, I feel made them feel more relatable and believable as everyday people.
Anything I say and/or do *WILL* most probably be blamed on the Butterbeer & mocktails I had that one Saturday night. :B

Took forever to figure out how to compress this to be small enough to get to work on Tumblr. Either way, it is here now.
This was a little pencil test I intended as a warm up but ended up taking longer (total frames: 104). I really wanted to make a looping pokemon evolution gif like I’ve seen floating around tumblr in the past. So I decided to do one for my favorite pokemon line, Togepi, Togetic and Togekiss!
The Togepi line has always had a special place in my heart. I loved them back in Johto when there were only two and when Togekiss was introduced in Sinnoh it gave me a new love for the line as a whole. And now they are fairy types in the new games which I’m really happy for.This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. I personally love this evolutionary line, and this loop makes me so happy because it’s so cute and blissful and heavenly and too amazing for words. I just love it.
Aw thank you! I’m glad you like it.
Also wanted to reblog this gif again because somehow it is gaining a crazy amount of notes lately.
And also I’m still proud of it (n´v｀n)
With the advent of Mega Altaria’s reveal, I felt the need to upgrade Virucocha, Gracidea’s gargantuan, ancient dragon bird. Now with 50% more feathery fluff and longer flowing tail feathers.
if you’re a girl and you call everyone “bro” you need to stop because you sound unattractive and stupid
if you’re a person who thinks someone shouldn’t be allowed to use certain words because of their gender you need to stop because you sound unattractive and stupid
Based on this (x). Conclusion: they’re still fuckers.
Or maybe daddy works all week to provide us money for food and clothes
Because daddy’s labour is arbitrarily placed at a higher value and the work he does all week is no more important or legitimate than domestic labour. The capital value of the same relative labour is dependent on the gender of the person its performed by, and the capital values of different, specific kinds of labour, are dependent on the gender of the person who usually performs them in a society. The work easily available to women is priced cheap or free, and the work women have to struggle harder to get is still worth less capital than that same work when performed by men.
In short, daddy gets to choose what he gets to work on, and the job he gets to choose can easily generate more than enough money to feed and shelter more than one person. In this scenario, women still have to do work, but are often forced to depend on others to support them, let alone able to consider supporting others with their labour.
In some cases, men might actually prefer their wives to do even less in terms of domestic labour, because it will be a symbol of conspicuous leisure, which is the mark of status. Women doing no work at all only happens if daddy has so much money and power that he wants to show it to people by how he can support a family with even less work on their part.
A society directing women to be dependent on men, who like their women that way, is definitively a patriarchy, and the division of labour between men and women continues to reinforce gender inequality even today.
Hopefully you can see more of the repercussions of EXACTLY WHAT WAS IMPLIED IN THE ORIGINAL POST now.
