Subtitle: "Gen 1 meets Gen 5 and 6"

HELLO, GUYS! :wave:

AWW my first FanArt 2013 – and my first Best Wishes and Pokémon X and Y FanArt as well! Yes, I drew Iris, Cilan, and their Pokémon PLUS the new starters of Generation VI [which I really love ♥] PLUS the first time Gary with Anime-greenish eyes! This is the first generation since Johto I can enjoy the starters completely. :excited: So thanks, Gamefreak, for a great generation for me after 12 long years!

I really wanted to make a FanArt to the Gen VI Starters, but because of I was so busy with FAITH and didn’t make a FanArt in MONTHS I swore to myself “It has to become a great one!” – and so I got an idea.
I was wondering about two things, when creating this FanArt:
1.) What would have happened, if Gary still was the motherf*cking, arrogant rival to Ash as in Gen I
2.) What if there was an exhibition for gym-leaders, where they could get the new starters for checking them out first, like an assistant for toys on a toy-exhibition?
That means, I wanted to check out how an original Anime-episode could look like, when the gym-leaders Iris, Cilan, Misty, and Brock would meet at such an exhibition, in a Pokémon-Center, for example. As you can see, Iris could get a Froakie, while Cilan got a Chespin. Gary, on the other hand, is the grandchildren of the worldwide known Professor Oak. So this grandpa gave him a Fennekin and he’s like: “Hey, loser! I’ve already mine. What about you?! Hehe!”, when Ash got very jealous seeing him with this awesome, brand-new Pokémon! Iris has to pull him back, so Gary can be still alive…
Sadly Misty wasn’t able to catch a Froakie, but I’m sure, she’ll get one soon. :D

And now I really want to make something clear…
I don’t have ANYTHING against Iris or Cilan. I really enjoy these two, especially together. The only character I can’t stand is Dawn, but I don’t hate her, either. She only gets on my nerves, I’m sorry to say this. D’: And I don’t like the story-writing and drawing-style of Best Wishes. That’s all. Please, stop doing these cruel rumors about me. Iris and Cilan are really cool! Maybe I’ll draw them one day again, but that’s artist’s freedom. ;P

PLEASE, attention one last time:
To the drawer –me- this is NOT meant to be a shipping-picture in any way. But if you want to see some shippings in it, I don’t mind, but please, don’t say something like “OMG! You’re a Negai-, Ego-, Pallet-, whatever-Fan now?!”, because I’m not (and never will be!). Thank you :heart: :hug:

Phew! :phew: Long text is long…

I really hope you’ll enjoy the FanArt. :D

I don't think so if Gary is still that arrogant. He is even Ash's great friend at "Galactico" fic made by me. Anyway, I like them all (although I am a Wishfulshipper)...

This is a marvelous picture! Seeing Misty, Brock, and Gary brings back so many memories. I miss them all, including Gary, he may have been a dick, but he still had the ladies! :D

Hey Miya, what's ur opinion on ash's x and y female companion? Do u think she can compete with misty?
MiyaToriaka Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I hope she'll be nice and not like Dawn, hopefully more into Pokémon (sorry to all Dawn-fans. I don't mean this mad). I'm sure she's a good old childhood friend for Ash like Gary is. Nothing more.

I'm also hoping that she isn't portrayed as a girlfriend character and is more like a rival 2 him. I want more action n pokemon anime and a romance between ash and Serena might mean Less of that if they plan 2 make this anime cool

She won't. Ash is still 10 (it was officially said).
