Everything must come to an End by Gatobob Everything must come to an End by Gatobob
I always kind of wondered, "wouldn't fire pokemon just burn down everything around them all the time?"

I thought more about it, and came up with a small theory. I imagine that most of the time, fire pokemon avoid setting fire to their surroundings to preserve their homes, food, and hiding places. But every once in a very long time, a forest grows too old and too thick, and too many plants at the bottom layers die. This is when fire pokemon get a strong instinctual urge to burn it down, to allow for a new generation of plants to grow.

Some coniferous trees here in Canada only reproduce that way- their pine cones stay glued shut and only fire cracks them open to spread new seeds.

This Volpix looks pregnant. :P Do pokemon reproduce sexually and therefore get pregnant? Do they ever say?

They don't and no, eggs 'magically' appear.

Though that's supposed to be her hip, she's turning around ^^;

Hmmm interesting. Bionicle is like that to, they never explain where they come from they were just always kinda there. :shrug:

Yeah I see it, but it also can look like its pregnant. I guess its just one of those situations where there's room for interpretation in the shape and pose of it.

Aaahhh i'm loving that background! It actually reminds me of the old Japanese tale of demon/spirit fires which makes it doubly cool because Vulpix and Ninetales are based on the monster foxes that are also associated with them :dummy:

RIGHT!? I was agonizing over what to do for the BG, one of te few times I didn't have it planned out before I baked.

But then I just looked at a bunch of vulpix fan art and I was like "oh duh they do will-I-wisp"

That theory is not really far away. One description of Flareon says that the body temperature of this creature can go up to 1600 degrees. That's enough to melt steel. Don't pet them!
However, here are some places in north america with the same bio system. Every season whole landscapes are burning but that doesn't harm the bigger trees. The only problem is that men have pervented this conflagrations for years. The result: if there is a fire, it's enourmous and out of any kind of control.

But back to your work. This Vulpix is adorable. I like the glare in his eye and the shadow in the fur.

Yeah that stuff is cool right? I like hearing about how fire is part of the natural order of things. It certainly makes Pokemon make more sense.
