Fellow deviants who, for one reason or another, have earned my trust on this site!

They're artists I'd be happy to draw stuff for/draw stuff with, commenters who almost always have something to say about one's work, thinkers who, on occasion, have even inspired me with some of my ideas, and just all around nice people!

If you find your icon on this list, consider it a sign of my utmost respect!



Pokemon World Summer 2014 Logo by Xero-J
It's the final week of July, and with it the final Battle/Trade event of the Pokemon World Summer 2014!

To make this one count, however, this event in particular will run all the way until the end of July on the 31st!

The theme for battle this time is, fittingly, Legendary Pokemon!

Legendaries, Ubers, Mythical Pokemon, you name it! If it's banned in online play, it'll take the spotlight here!

Single Battle, Entire Team of Legendaries, and No Mercy!

So what do I have to offer for those who claim victory against me this time, you ask?

SIX different legendaries are available for grabs this time around!

and finally, Jirachi!

In addition to winning these legendaries from me, with said legendary comes a special exclusive artwork sent directly to the victor through! (And by exclusive, I mean "This will not be shown on my gallery EVER" so this is your one and only chance to own a special personal gift from me!)

Plus, since we're dealing with legendaries, this could be your first chance to see the elusive Diancie in action!

So what are you waiting for? This is your chance to bring out your big guns and fight with everything you've got!
