Rest of Johto Fabrix

Here we go with the other half of the Johto patterns (which are overall better than the Kantos and therefore...Idk what to do with 'em. You couldn't pick six, and they only seem to make the shirts.

  • Umbreon
  • Houndoom
  • PHANPY!
  • Porygon2
  • Espeon
  • Houndour
  • Suicune (putting up here with the most favorite Pokemon but it's a disappointing pattern; just heads, can't see its full beauty)
  • Pupitar (WTF, NEVER DID I IMAGINE THIS ONE WOULD BE SO HIGH, BUT GODDAMN NEON CACTUS GARDEN)
  • Forretress (red+purple plaid)
  • Corsola (pink+blue+yellow)

  • Igglybuff
  • Sunkern
  • Gligar

ranking 52% of Johto fabrics

*drops literally fucking dead*
This cannot be. No. They. Actually.
NO.
Wtfffffffffffffkjhgytfwghesikyottireu\szjkdlfgiturehjwnjkdoifjrn4kotiuhegjaksdjfgk
...So it's an actual full-on miracle that the original 150 fabrics exist in the first place; like, WHAT were the odds, honestly...but I truly believed that the notion of them ever going beyond those most-heavily-merchandised 150 was a ludicrous dream. But as usual, for something to stand a chance of happening, I have to be 100% certain that it will not--for now all of a sudden they email me 52/100 unveiled Johto designs, and I'm like..."These better be available on so much shit besides dress shirts? Or apparel for that matter. I could go for a custom patchwork quilt, perhaps. Or fuckin' patchwork wallpaper/borders." Or I'll just do my usual, make my own whatever and maybe print it if that makes sense. Clearly I gotta do something. Fuck. Just over half are known, and I can tell this gen is in no way as clear-cut as the first. They've lost it. And several highly-ranked ones are well above Pokemon I like more because the designs are so damn good. E.g., Ariados--I like spiders, it's cool, but it's not such a super-fave that I'd have expected its pattern to rank like this. Anyway, by the Ides of April the rest are supposed to be revealed. And that other half includes most of my Big Faves from Johto--Suicune, Umbreon, Houndoom, Phanpy, Porygon2, Espeon, Houndour. Plus Qwilfish, Forretress, Hoppip, Corsola, Magby, Elekid, Steelix, Lanturn, Chinchou......and then there's Misdreavus, Yanma, Sunkern, Skarmory, Shuckle, Dunsparce, etc., etc., etc. Lots of potential to surpass the current favorites.
But at any rate, as this was unforeseeable, my shirt is perfect for what was available at the time.

  • Bayleef (excellent color)
  • Ariados (OMG WTF...too adorable...treehouses...it reminds me of the Berenstain Bears and Winnie the Pooh and the Polly Pocket one...wow)
  • Flaafy (are you fucking kidding me...random neon Alolan Exeggutors thrown into the neon mix for some reason...this one corresponds to Weepinbell in the first set then?)
  • Magcargo (fire-snail paisley, totally turbo)
  • Smoochum (Weird 'mon but I dig its shapely blonde hair+pinkness, and I loooove the 80s/90s "Saved By the Bell" graphics in the pattern)
  • Pineco (A pineapple pinecone. Why are they doing this)
  • Girafarig (Its tail reminds me of a Chain Chomp and it looks good)
  • Mantine (not really a fave pattern but very much a fave Pokemon)
  • Octillery (nice design, high up more bc of the Pokemon itself though)
  • Ledyba (bc Vileplume/rafflesia flowers)
  • Marill (Jfc...Alolan Exeggutor, Corsola, Luvdisc in another "Hawaiian" print)
  • Bellossom (those flowers look cool too...like Limited Too logos and my pink/purple pillow and the green/purple/pink felt one I made)
  • Slugma
  • Xatu
  • Sunflora (van Gogh style, oh they're getting too damn creative on me here)
  • Smeargle (paint splatters, reminds me of Lisa Frank)
  • Natu (disappointing bc it's solid terra-cotta instead of the neon green/yellow/pink+black I expected)
  • Sudowoodo (such a cute 'mon but what a weird design...doodly, includes Bonsly [yay], lots of brick cabins...)
  • Politoed (lily pad umbrella+Poliwags/whirls...cute)
  • Skiploom (colorful)
  • Jumpluff (cute, looks like a little bouncing blueberry with cotton balls attached)
  • Slowking (I are angry shell...literally...'Chelle)
  • Piloswine
  • Delibird
  • Togetic
  • Quilava
  • Meganium
  • Ampharos
  • Mareep
  • Ledian
  • Noctowl
  • Furret
  • Togepi
  • Spinarak
  • Stantler
  • Feraligatr
  • Croconaw
  • Quagsire
  • Azumarill
  • Remoraid (I enjoy Remoraid bc FISH! and it too loves Mantine, and it's nice how they did a Pisces thing here, but they made it kinda fat? xD)
  • Swinub (cute but don't get no simpler'n that)
  • Chikorita
  • Cyndaquil
  • Sentret
  • Blissey
  • Typhlosion
  • Scizor (confusing up close, nice-looking at a distance)
  • Unown (TO KNOW THE UNKNOWN, DOESN'T MEAN THAT MUCH TO ME; TO KNOW THE UNKNOWN, SOME SECRETS ARE JUST MEANT TO BE...)
  • Crobat
  • Hoothoot
  • Totodile
  • Pichu

POKEMON SHIIIIRRRRRT


The Pokepatchwork is in! And the only thing I don't adore about my shirt is that you have to pop the collar to see all the Vulpixes (Vulpix? Vulpices?) I agonized for ages over where to place each fabric, knowing only that the shirt itself would be Weepinbell. There was no way to tell which other piece would allow each Vulpix to be fully visible, since that pattern is particularly spread-out and varied, and also includes the berries and stones...alas that didn't happen, and you do have to unfold it to see most of all of them. As feared, too many stupid berries & stones on the unpopped exterior; they should've flipped it. Doubtful it would've been much better elsewhere, and you'd have been taking the same gamble...probably worse...the outer collar seemed like the best bet. Disappointed in how that fabric was cut and used; obviously you should make every effort to showcase all the actual Pokemon in the pattern as much as possible. Speaking of which, the row with the Ninetales faces really shouldn't have been cut in half, but at least with that one it's basically symmetrical so you can mentally put two halves together. Delighted with the Weepinbell, Vileplume, Victreebel, and Exeggutor sections. Well, Victreebel could be centered too, but again, the leaf that's cut off is clearly visible on the other side. And you get bonus Yanma & Ledyba. :p

+ other masterpiece
