Victory Fire's one year anniversary is coming up! In honor of this event we will be running a little contest.

Your challenge? Every Pokemon fan had that first Pokebro, that original team, the one that started it all. We would like you to create an illustration of your first Pokemon partner. :D Draw your starter, or your whole team-- it's up to you!

Winners will be decided based on the personality of the piece as well as technique. We're not necessarily looking for the best technical artistry, but for something that really shows love and good memories. Give it your best! :D

Send us a note with a link to your entry on DA! :D

:star::star::star:

:star: There will be two prizes! :star:

:heart: Runner up: Free commission from sulfurbunny (one character, simple color) :heart:

:star: First prize: Free deluxe commission from sulfurbunny **PLUS** Something secret! To receive it you will need a wifi-capable DS with a fourth or fifth gen trade-enabled Pokemon game-- and that's all we'll say for now! :star:

:star::star::star:

One day left, guys. Get those entries submitted. :D

Your deadline is March 2nd 2013. :rose:

What you do is go to the deviation page. Right click on the title above the description and click "Copy link address." Then, go to wherever you want to link the deviation, right click and click "Paste."

Done! :dummy: The link will appear as a URL when it's put in, but that'll change to [link] when you submit the comment/ note.

Thanks to both you and LoveandBonestem, I thought when it came up as an URL that I didn't do it right.

Oh dear I pretty much liked any pokémon back then. I don't know which Pokémon were on my party ._.
Still remember having a charmander prevent evolving until my brother convinced me to make it a charizard by the time it was level 60.

My first ever video game was a Pokémon Yellow with a yellow GameBoy Color. :love:

I still own the game. Obviously, my starter would be Pikachu. :iconpikachu:
And I can only remember the other three Pokémon in my first team. (Again, obviously Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle)

Hmm... Maybe I should enter. Would it be ok if I was only able to do those four Pokémon?

....Ah, crap....My first Pokemon was when I was 6 or 7 years old....I only remember it was a Cyndaquil...(my second was a Totodile). Does it matter if we remember everything about said Pokemon, or just what the very first one we had was?
