I think there was a theory that Gyrados was flipped with Dragonite.

I doubt that because Magikarp is based on a Chinese legend about how carp that jumped over the Dragon Gate would become dragons. So I don't think they were switched as the Chinese dragons are very different to Dragonite.

I think this would work as Dragonite's Mega-evolution, but I like the dragon just the way it is.

As much as I like this design of Dragonite, I prefer the original more. It stands out from the other two and doesn't look like a bigger version of Dragonair. I like drastic changes in final evolutions. It's what makes Pokemon unique. In other words, I love that derpy orange dragon. :)

I personally think they messed up that evolutionary chain. (The Pokemon creators, your version is a lot better.)

Little blue serpent ==> Bigger, more epic-looking snake ==> Big orange derp dragon.

I was so disappointed when I let my first dragonair evolve j uj

I mean Dragonite is cool and all but I was hoping it would be some amazing winged chinese-style dragon , maybe having those tiny little arms or something, not some orange full on dragon.

On its own, I think Dragonite is pretty cute, but it was still a huge shock when I evolved my Dragonair :/

I think your Dragonite remodel could've been just a wee bit slimmer though, but very nice otherwise.

I like this evo-form better, I was always confused why such an elegant thing turns into a big f*cking dragon! This one looks much better, but a Chinese dragon form would look better if you ask me.

Ow yeah, Dragonite definitely stands out being not similar at all to it's pre-evolutions, I would love if it would resemble them more like yours <3

Also, angelic wings would be awesome, like the ones on Dragonair's ears. ^^

I ready a theory on how maybe Gyarados was supposed to be dragonair's evolution because of the serpentine body shape and colour scheme and dragonite was magicarp's evolution because of colour ;w;

:iconpikachulover2012:
PikachuLover2012 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
That theory doesn't make any sense. Whoever told you that hasn't done their research on Mythology. Dragonite is based on "Guardian of the Sea". A Japanese myth/story about a sea serpent(Dragonair) that changed into a dragon(Dragonite) that protects the seas. Gyarados is also based on a Japanese myth/story about a carp(Magicarp) that changed into a flying water dragon after attempting to climb a waterfall to prove its strength.

This Dragonite is more legit than the original. I think it's weird that both its pre-evolutions are blue then it drastically changes to yellowish orange. :/

The final evolution will always go through a drastic change from its pre-evolutions. Like the starters, for example. 

-Fennekin and Tepig came from quadrupeds to bipeds
-Mudkip also came from a quadruped to a biped
-Bayleef and Grovyle lost their head leaves
-Froakie and Frogadier lost their bubbles
-Snivy and Servine lost their limbs
-Charmander had grew wings
-Oshawott came from a goofy looking otter to a badass samurai sea lion
-Squirtle grew giant water cannons
-Chimchar's flame moved from its tail to its head
-Cindaquil's volcano flames moved from its back to its neck
-Tochic came from a cute little chic to a epic Kung fu chicken
-Bulbasaur's bulb became a giant flower
-Chespin and Quiladin came from cute hedgehogs to a juggernaught knight.
-Pilup became an awesome "Neptune penguin" 
-Turtwig's twig on its head became a giant tree on its back

To me drastic changes to the final evolution is creative and they don't just look like bigger versions of their pre-evolutions(I'm looking at you fan-artists).

-Mudkip went back to a quadruped in its final form.
-The "limbs" on Snivy and Servine were outstretched leaves/limbs. In its final form, these limbs turned into leaves they were meant to be. (though its coils cover what grasping abilities it used to have.)

^^Just wanted to point those factors out.^^


They do look more creative with changes in their final forms. However, I do take some offense to that last remark, "I'm looking at you fan-artists," as I am one myself.

PikachuLover2012 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
True. Snivy and Servine's limbs do change into stubby leaves in the end. I forgot that Marshtomp is a biped. ^^;

Sorry about that. Its just every time I see fan-art of fakemon evolutions, they often look too similar to their pre-evolutions, having no drastic change in the final evo. I didn't mean to offend you. ^^;

Oh, speaking of Fakemon, maybe you could take a look at some of mine. I've been trying to help out :iconpengie9290: with Pokemon ideas for his fic, but I need a little critiquing.

I'm not very good with critiques, but here goes. Seems like most of the Fakemon designs are pretty decent, but there are a few evolutions that seem pretty "generic" to me. I think they'll fit pretty well with the fanfic. :nod:

The fire-snake one's(sorry, forgot the name) evolution is an example of its design looking a bit "generic" to its pre-evolution. Maybe having it, and other Fakemon based on mythology(like Altaria is based on Peng, a Japanese dragon bird) or a reference to culture(like Emboar is based on Chinese culture or the Chinese boar). You can always look up images and/or old myths to give you an idea. :)

I hope this helped in anyway. I did the best I could. ^^;
