#24: Scrafty & Pangoro
"Scrafty live in groups that beat up anything that enter their territory. The one with the biggest crest is the group leader. Each can spit acidic liquid from its mouth and can smash concrete blocks with their kicking attacks"
"Although Pangoro possesses a violent temperament, it won’t put up with bullying. It charges ahead and bashes its opponents like a berserker, uncaring about any hits it might take. Its arms are mighty enough to snap a telephone pole. It uses the leaf in its mouth to sense the movements of its enemies."
Ok, so everyone knew this guy was making it into the list! Really the only thing UNexpected about this entry is that it didn't place at no.1 and that I made Scrafty share the lime light with another. Yes, it's no mystery that Scrafty is my all time favorite Pokemon and while that may be the case I can't deny it doesn't really fit into a Halloween feel. Neither of these guys do, while they're both part Dark, they aren't built on being scary, just thuggish. As for making this a dual entry while I by no means view Pangoro on the same tier as Scrafty and I am just the teensiest bit salty at it for stealing the uniqueness of the Dark/Fighting typing but I'm a big enough man to let bygones be bygones and I DO like Pangoro, a lot actually. It was nice to see a good idea used for an animal actually not touched on yet in the Pokemon universe... well overlooking the totally forgettable Spinda (I love it, but hey, you know it's true!)
So in the end I had to resign myself to purposefully giving Scrafty a low position if only because it would be unfair if I just slapped it into first place. I did struggle with the idea of not giving it a picture to itself but in the end I realized I've really drawn more then enough stand alone pictures of Scrafty, it would be nothing new at this point and hey, why not give Pangoro a little love? Also I'm a total sucker for the epic exchange of equally matched blows ala anime style and since these two can literally wipe the floors with each other due to their own typing I figured it worked; Scrafty is a bullying type hoodlum, while Pangoro hates bullying. I figured it was a good, worthy clash of characters... but that's me!
