Hitmontop- The spin devil by blueharuka Hitmontop- The spin devil by blueharuka
If there's one word to describe a Hitmontop, 'Brave' is often the word chosen the most.
despite their small size, Hitmontop have very courageous attitudes. though not nearly as physically strong as their two counterparts, 'Monlee and 'Monchan, a barrage of kicks from this little beast is still powerful enough to break limbs and even make very deep dents and scratches in the side of a large truck as if it were nothing but a mere soda can.

Unlike its' counterparts, Hitmontop is way more eager to rush into battle without actually thinking of a good strategy first (think of it as the youngest sibling trying his hardest to prove himself to his two older and more experienced brothers), often times leading to it getting injured against a much stronger opponent.

They are quite stubborn, but in a way they kind of take the term 'Bone-headed' to a whole new level.
and by that we mean that out of the whole Hitmon' trio, Hitmontop literally has the thickest skull, complete with a layer of fat about an inch thick on the inside and encased around their brains to keep it in place and protect it from trauma while they are spinning on the spike on the tips of their heads.

And they very well need all of that protection, as a Hitmontop is capable of spinning at very high speeds of up to 60-70 mph.

Other facts about Hitmontop

- Hitmontop have the best eyesight out of the three.
Often compared with the eyesight of a Pidgeot or Staraptor.

- Bizarrely enough, most Hitmontop have two stomachs.
(or seemingly one stomach divided into two chambers)
It's not yet understood why their anatomy is like this.

- Those with the 'Intimidate' ability have longer ears with eye-like patterns on the insides.
when threatened these ears will stand up and open wide, revealing the eye patterns and this along with much of his fur bristling up tends to make him look much larger than what he really is.

- The best way to tell when a Hitmontop is falling ill is when it is unable to stop spinning on its own.

- They also have the best sense of smell out of the three.

That looks nice! I like that you gave it a hare/kangaroo sort of look. Love the ears!

I have to say I love how you make the pokemon look realistic but also still have a fantasy appeal?

You take the old designs but make a realistic fantasy, which in all honesty makes it seem more believable and makes sense.
I love how you draw pokemon, I've seen a ton of people draw realistic pokemon, keeping to the old designs but just make them look more real.

However, you've done some totally different here and I adore it.
Please, dont ever spot, this is gorgeous.

that stomach part is odd, if only because no reason is given. It feels like you always give a reason.

Man, I love your interpretation on this one! Really digging the fur tufts and his expression! <3
I've always adored Hitmontop over the rest of the hitmon' line for some reason, their shiny version is pretty too! So, by chance, if I were to make my own Hitmontop, could I use your design? Credit will be given.

Thank you! :)

And of course!

Anyone can use the designs I've made up for these Pokemon.
I can't really and truly stake claim to them anyhow since I don't even own Pokemon as a whole. :D

You're very welcome!

And thank you as well!

Well, to be fair. I found you (meaning your deviant art) while looking for references on google for Typhlosion for my twin brother, because he loves Typhlosion a lot, and wanted me to draw him as one. XD And I stylized the muzzle really closely to your baby Razz's. But, either way, I get what you're saying, though, I still feel like we should give you credit some way or another.

also, could we maybe get some more work/story of that 'crazy' Ninetales? >w>; *shot*

Thanks! :)

Pokemon with the more 'rounder' body shapes have always been a bit of a hassle to convert into my own designs, but the best thing for me to do to solve that problem is to just not even worry about the roundness and trying to get them to look exactly the same.

Just as long as I keep the color scheme right!

I really adore your interpretation!
May I ask you what was the inspiration for giving it cat-like muzzle?

:iconblueharuka:
blueharuka Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Cat-like?
(shoot, I was trying to go for gopher-like...silly me! ^^; )

Ah well, I think what inspired that was just me not feeling comfortable with not putting a nose on his face. XD
creature designs (any kind, not just Pokemon) without any kind of visible nose or ears have ALWAYS bothered me and I promised myself that I would
never do something like that...

Plus, the image of a gopher popped up on my computer while I was browsing and that's when I said;

"What would happen if I made a Hitmon-gopher?"...

I'm weird, don't listen to me.

Ahh, sorry ^^; Anything that has short snout that's very close to the rest of the head reminds me a cat snout. Don't be mad plz :iconsawbplz:
But I understand that - some nose-less pokemon, such as meowht, sentret or skitty, bothers me too.

Haha, best ideas comes unexpected, I guess.

But maaan, if hitmontop looked like this in the game, I'd actually love to get one! It looks lovely and powerful too, not just like some Beyblade or whirligig.

That's an awesome realistic depiction. I'm gonna have to remember this one if I feel like doing a more detailed drawing of Hitmontop.
