Epic Battle by Serain Epic Battle by Serain
View the Remixed Version for HG/SS here:


More wallpapery goodness!

Drew this to celebrate HeartGold and SoulSilver coming out in the US! I'm only late by six hours or so but better late than never am I right.

This was probably the most epic moment I felt as a child, before the world of spoilers and such - I climbed my way up that mountain and was like "Who the heck is up here - HOLY SHIT!"

Yeah, I shat brix. And lost my first time around - his snorlax did quite a number on my team. But I saved beforehand, so I resetted to scurry off and train some more.

Good times, good times.

(and yes, in the old g/s/c, red had an espeon instead of a lapras.)

Photoshop, 7 hours
Yeah, this is me attempting anime

Edit: I complied a "making of" - basically a bunch of screencaps of ordered stages in the process - with added commentary.

I remember my battle with Red. I lost at least three times before winning. Those were the first three times I had ever lost.

I'm getting flashbacks of the first time I battled Red. He sweeped me with Pikachu. I fought him again for a second time, and got wiped out by Charizard. I fought him again a third time with my Pokemon leveled to at LEAST level 90, and still only barely won.

I BOW BEFORE THE TRUE POKEMON MASTER! I've no doubt that he ALLOWED me to beat him. It must be dreadfully boring to only win Pokemon battles ALL. THE. FREAKING. TIME. Poor guy.

Overall, I love this. everything about it. But I especially love how you did Red. Like, everything about him. Super thin, his eyes are all like "You, noob...", and he looks, basically, like a total B-A. ALSO, I love how he's holding Pikachu. I dont know why, it just looks like an epic mix of cute and awesome.

From an experimental eevee, which has been a flareon, jolteon and vaporeon but lost its ability to devolve back to eevee when it turned into espeon. [pokemon adventures manga]

If you really wanted to make this as G/S/C version and "Battle on Mt. Silver" as HG/SS version, you should have paid attention to the clothes of the characters in each generation. You drew the HG/SS outfits for both drawings, and that's a bit unrealistic from my view point. Other than that, this is really great, that's the only flaw I see.

I have to say, back in GSC, the first time i climbed mount silver, i thaught maybe there'd be a super-ultra-mega legendary at the top, but when i got there, i can remember, quite literally, saying 'No... Flaming... Way...'

I can only think of one way that would've made it cooler, if (thanks to the gba slot) Red had the team you had the last time you faught the elite 4 in Fr/Lg
