Weedle Used Poison Sting by TamarinFrog Weedle Used Poison Sting by TamarinFrog
Memories from Viridian Forest anyone?

Something to wake my drawing mood. I decided to participate in :iconpokedex-collection:'s pokemon appreciation week and this week, it's a weedle! Such a simple pokemon so I wanted to try and make him look cool. It was fun. :)

This is also an example for something I have in mind... More of that later.

painful memories thank you very much tamarin. My first shiny was a golden weedle who i raised into a magnifcient emerald beedrill. Then he and my pink weavile were stolen from me by a jackass who loved to torment me. Thank you for the salt on my wounds

Never thought one of the worm Pokémon could look badass.

Wait, does this mean weedle can poison you when they use head-butt?

Probably the second most hated pokemon troughout videogamehistory.
I always bought as many antidotes as I could before going into the forest

Weedle had never looked this badass (Wait! Posion Sting?! I already run out of Antidotes! :nuu:).
Always reminded me of Wiggler from the Mario games.

Weedle's Poison Sting always seems to have a 99% poison chance, instead of the usual 30%. I cannot count the number of times I've had to go racing off to the pokemon center after an encounter with one of these guys. XD

Damn poison sting! Almost as annoying as confuse ray which combined with Golbat is my all time least favorite wild encounter. Curse you victory road!!!

YES! All of my yes!

I was hoping to find a good Weedle pose for something I was making.

Would you mind if I used this as a reference, Tamarin?

God they were annoying in Pokemon Blue, I couldn't take 2 steps in the forest without one popping up and poisoning my Squirtle, Pidgey, and Pikachu. . .

This is so well done! I love that you captured the movement of his body but the stillness of his head. Of course, I am always envious of your lineart and coloring.

Real nice sting shot there! Yes, Viridian forest does have tons of memories. Weedle might not be much now, but that thing was pretty vicious to new trainers. Definitely more than any of those Unovan early poison types could be what with the after-battle effect of poison disappearing. So lucky weedle gets to be special in some way. 

This is pretty cool, I like the purple bubbles.

GAH! It hit my most vital weak point! MY MEMORIES!!

Oh the good times of catching one, raising it into Beedrill, then discovering Butterfree was the better option and boxing it. l'D

Red and Blue, I love you.
