Myself, I love Zygarde! And I love your painting style as well. The subtle touches of purple and orange are very nice. The RGB colors are not uncommon for Pokémon. They did it for gen 3's legendaries. Additionally, even more common is the red and blue combination. In that case, gen 4 (pink and blue) and 5 fit, too. Though Reshiram and Zekrom are white and black, their secondary colors are blue and red.
I'm a bit tired of Pokémon trying to pander to older generations instead of producing actual new content. I never liked generation 1 much (mainly because I wasn't there for it). I got on the boat at generation 2 and prefer its Pokémon far more.
Yup! I just love these things
Yes, the Game Freak People themselves mentioned that masculinity and femininity were big themes. In general, this disparity is a major motif in Eastern games, too. The duality of elements in the natural world goes all the way back to Daoism and Lao Tsi.
I agree, Pokémon really needs to change its focus or put less emphasis on the time-and-tried but boring collectathon of gym badges. Honestly, it seems silly to me, at times. Oh, I just saved the world from assured destruction and captured a legendary Pokémon. What? I need ANOTHER gym badge before I can fight the Pokémon league? xD You'd think a life-changing event like that would shift the focus away from petty sporting competitions like the Pokémon League anyway, hehe.
