And finally, Sylveon. This post took so long because when I started making Sylveon, I realized that my style in making these wallpapers have changed since I started almost 3 years ago. The other eeveelution wallpapers were the first ones that I made, and were a lot more simplistic than my style now.
So I was undecided about how to make Sylveon. On the one hand, I want it to match the style of the other eeveelutions, but on the other hand, I want it to match the newer style.
The decision I ended up with was to update all the other eeveelution wallpapers with the newer more detailed style. Instead of making new posts for each eeveelution again, I just updated the old posts with the new images. Also, I’m not updating Eevee or the eeveelution collages, because I think they look fine with the old style. Here’s the eeveelution tag to find all those posts. (also, the updated versions aren’t in the archives yet, I’ll get to that later)
I put all the wallpapers I made into one folder, and determined that, including alternate formes and shinies (but excluding the composite bonus wallpapers), I’ve made 723 wallpapers, each with 3 resolutions. There are 680 posts on this blog, including this post (though not all are wallpapers). I started this blog on Jan 6, 2011, posted daily for the first year, and slacked off quite a bit near the end haha. I also used to write blurbs about the Pokemon, but stopped because I got lazy. Maybe I’ll go back and fill in the blurbs.
Also, I started these posts using 1600×900 instead of 1920×1080, and think I’m going to update the older wallpapers. Though unfortunately since I don’t own the domain the image URLs are gonna look weird (wordpress indexes the image by the month it’s uploaded), oh well. After I do that, I’ll sort through them and upload zip files.
English name is Sylveon. Type is still a secret though. But judging by its English name, it could be based on “sylph”, can mean
1. A slim, graceful woman or girl.
2. In the occult philosophy of Paracelsus, a being that has air as its element.
New Eeveelution in Gen VI!! Japanese name is Ninfia, type, ability, English name currently unknown. It will make its debut in the Pikachu short before the Genesect movie, titled “Pikachu and Eevee Friends”.
What do you think of Ninfia? What type do you think it is? My first instinct was Flying. Nin = nimbasa? Its “hair” style kind of reminds me of Skyla. But it could also be plausible as Normal, Fighting, Dragon, or even a new type (“Light” ??)
It’s also really really pink and girly-looking, haha. Do you think it’ll still be 75% male? Or is this female-only. How does it evolve from Eevee? Continue reading New eeveelution!→
Today is the 1st anniversary of Pokewalls! I started this project on Jan 6th, 2011. The first post I made was Togekiss. I’ve come a long way since then, and I feel that the style has also changed somewhat, haha.
Thanks to everyone who one way or another have found this blog. I appreciate all the feedback I’ve gotten (and sorry if you’ve made a request and I haven’t gotten to it yet, I’ll go through the comments and try to find any requests I’ve missed).
This wallpaper was supposed to be a promotional one for the site when it first launched a year ago, I’ve only gotten to it now, haha.
And I’m far from being done, only about 56% of the way through X.x
