These photo edits are of my favorite pokemon, Primarina (the Soloist pokemon). Empoleon is also my favorite for a variety of reasons, but Primarina beat it by a mile because of how much I relater to this siren. I took the original photos from my game Pokemon Ultra Moon, and exported the photos to my phone, where I added transparent images of water to make the photo look more beautiful and dramatic. I added a filter, and my personal symbol to finish the photos. Its concept based on a Hawaiian Sea Lion, and a mermaid, which goes well with it’s water (the aquatic animal half) and fairy (the mythical creature half) typing. I made these edits of Primarina because it’s eye candy for me, first and foremost. I also made it because I instantly fell in love with this pokemon’s design at first sight, as well as its info. It’s by far the one I relate to the most, and it’s because first: It SINGS! Its info says that it’s singing voice is it’s main weapon, as it uses it to create bubbles that explode upon touch, and other kinds to move around depending on what song it sings. I relate to this because I also sing, even though it doesn’t allow me to control water at my own leisure (insert multiple laugh emojis here). The second reason I relate the most to this pokemon is that it has a caring nature, as do I. Primarina tends to put others before itself, while being positively selfish in caring for its pride and joy (its singing voice). I relate to this because though I tend to put others before myself, I still put myself as priority when it comes to things like identity and self-care. Third, I saw it’s Z-Move called Oceanic Operetta (it’s basically a super powered version of it’s signature move Sparkling Aria), which involved it singing in a single tone, creating a gigantic water sphere. As Primarina begins to sing, its ponytail bounded by pearl lets loose and flows freely. It then moves the sphere towards the opponent and hovers it over them. When my character lifts both of his arms as if he’s an orchestra conductor, Primarina sings at a higher tone, the sphere drops onto the opponent, and a massive explosion occurs. As the residual water rains down on Primarina, it takes a bow on it’s tail (which it also uses as feet to stand upright) before lying back down into its mermaid position. So that visually appealing move along with it’s theatrical theme is relatable to me because I have a theatrical side where I like to put on a performance (yet I prefer not to do so in front of a large audience). And lastly, Primarina can be either male or female and the appearance is still the same. Given that I am a man that wears feminine clothing as well as masculine clothing, this pokemon fits perfectly to my tastes, and even a part of my personality.
