I'll always have a bit of a soft spot for this moody bastard. I was 11 when the Pokemon movie came out, and I was really into the trading card game, the show and the actual video games (like everyone else my age). I went bonkers when I saw it. It's hard to recapture the excitement of that time as an adult, but every once in a while you can get it again in small doses. I felt a little of that excitement again when I was painting this. It's one of the few reasons I still do fan art. It's a way to tap back into that fountain of excitement.
