Missingno.'s Mask by Storytelleri Missingno.'s Mask by Storytelleri
Banette as Link
Pokeflute as Ocarina
Nuzleaf-mask as Deku-mask
(Normal colored) Celebi as Tatl
(Shiny) Celebi) as Tael
Missingno. as Majora’s Mask
Lunatone as The Moon
Keckleon as Happy Mask Saleman
Regigigas, Regirock, Regice and Registeel as the giants
Gardevoir as Anju
Ninetales-mask as Keaton-mask
…And now, can you deduce/guess: What Pokemons are behind Ninetales-mask and Missingno.’s Mask? :D

TWELVE Pokemon characters in one picture :iconzoominplz: (if the shadow on the ground and all masks are not counted)… And I’m so happy I got background into this round perspective nicely… PHEW. Drawing this took much more time than I expected. :iconshellshockedpikachu: But it was worth iiiiit! Kinda new thing to me to draw such dark shadow on characters... But nice to try, 'cause 1) I like try new drawing styles and 2) I wanted to draw similiarly with original art of Majora’s Mask dark-ish-style. Plus this game is so unique and interesting.


About watermark: I know it doesn't look nice. I didn't want it, but instead I ended up to need it. Before I knew what Reddit is, my heart jumped when I heard that my work was seen outside of the DeviantArt, in Reddit-site. You never know for sure if your art will be stolen, so you end up putting watermark just in case. Another purpose of watermark is that when your art wanders outside original website, you may want to make it clear where the art was originally from, so people could find and see more art from that artist if interested.
I put good long hours when planning and working on this pic, and I really don't feel like risking all my effort.

I think this is obvious for most of people in DA, so sorry for ranting. I'm not member of Reddit, so I cannot tell those people how this is, but as there's link to my work from Reddit, maybe they reads this before complaining more of the watermark. ...It's funny to see how my work has more comments in that site than here. It was interesting to read them.

Ocarina of Time? How about Poke Fluté of Time? Take a look: storytelleri.deviantart.com/ar…

Behind the missingno mask appears to be an abra or a cubone and under the ninetails mask is a combusken

Yup, they are Cubone and Combusken. I guess I should have made Cubone's tail more stub, as people have been guessing it to be Abra. Oh well... ^^'

OOOO baby! This looks great! The only issue I have is the character of Link... I dunno is a Ghost-type really fits him. Surely there's something else better..?
(I've seen another crossover picture where Link = Celebi. I guess the fairies could easily be Flabébés or Floettes? The Great Fairy character then could easily be Florges.)
Also, Honedge evolutions as Link's sword would be great.

So, I can't help but ask... Will there be any more for the other Zelda games? (There's 16 of note...)

Glad you like it! And about Link: game creator's named him as "Link" on purpose; he is a link between player and Zelda-world, so player could interract in there quite freely. His personality/charasteristic is exactly as you want: brave, serious, appellant, jackass (lol), reluctant hero without choices, etc.. In order to have freedom to decide your hero's personality and actions, there haven't been made many (if any) quotes for Link, so if he has comments to coversations, you can think them by yourself - this could be considered that Link isn't mute afterall. We could say that choosing Pokemon for Link's role is quite personal choice. I chose Banette as Link for comical, move-set and appearance reasons. I don't take Pokedex entries seriously at times, or I just think of them as myth. Banette is said to be vengeful for being thrown away by human, but if that's the case, that Pokemon shoulsn't exist in Mystery Dungeon games at all, as there's no humans there who could have trashed them. Not to mention Pokemons that were made by humans...
There are many Pokemons people have thought to be "more suitable" for Link's role; Charmander/Charmeleon, Pichu/Pikachu, Pancham, Snivy, Phantump... really, list goes on and on. In the end, Link is exactly as we imagine him, so we are all right with our choices and opinions. :)

There will be other Pokemon-Zelda cross-over drawings of other Zelda series. I could attempt, but I think I may not do all of them for few reasons:
1.) 5 out of 16 games I'm the most familiar with both story and characters, and the games are OoT, MM, WW, TP and SS (LBW is still a bit new, but I could possibly draw it too). Rest of the games I know only basic concept of the story, and only few characters. I don't dare to match up Pokemons yet to each Zelda character-role without fully knowing the whole game. I may take deeper dive in the others games, but I think I stick with these five for now; there's enough planning and drawings to make of these five.
2.) Choosing Pokemon for each character takes time. There is already 719 Pokemon, so just randomly picking Pokemon for roles, and fixing afterwards doesn't feel right.
By the way, if you've noticed I've drawn Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword cross-over pictures already.

The guy with the Ninetales/Keaton Mask is obviously Combusken, and if I had to guess I'd say Skull Kid is Cubone. 

Interesting choice, making Ninetales the base for the Keaton Mask. Its original design is literally meant to emulate Pikachu, which is already a Pokémon. Did you just choose to take a different route with that because you felt Pikachu would be too obvious or not creative enough? 

Very nicely done. I love everything about this. But why can't I favourite it?

:iconstorytelleri:
Storytelleri Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Student General Artist
Yes, Combusken and Cubone they are! :D
Well, I had Pikachu in mind to make as mask, but then I remembered that in MM game you have mini-quest to meet a real Keaton. Keaton's have anatomy of a fox, and has three tails, so the reason of putting mouse-Pokemon to the role only beacause of the ears and yellow color doesn't feel enough to me. Despite Ninetales having more than 3 tails, it is yellow-ish colored and has eyes that curves just like Keaton-mask's eyes. Zelda wikia says that the name "Keaton" is quite possibly based on the kitsune, fox-creature from Japanese mythology with multiple tails. And as you know, Ninetales is specified as fox-Pokemon. Also, when Keaton appears, it looks as if it digs under the ground to surface - both Pikachu and Ninetales can learn Dig-move, but in the end I decided to stick to the fox-specie, and give role to Ninetales.
What do you mean "But why I can't favourite it"? o:

Yes! Extensive Pokémon anatomic knowledge ftw X3 
You make a very well-established case, sir. I'll admit I actually forgot about the Keaton mini-quest, and as such I lose a bit of credibility here. Woops. I don't disagree with you at all though; after hearing your explanation, the choice for Ninetales makes more than enough sense. I was just curious about the potential deeper meaning, and now I understand. 
Originally when I found this piece, there was no "Favorite" button to be found! It was so sad for me :( That seems to be fixed now though, and the image has a pretty solid place of residence in my Favourites collection. 
For the record, "Ninetales" is spelled wrong multiple times in the description :P

I make a lot of thinking, such cases as this Keaton-mask contains hard decisions, as Pikachu could have served actually quite well it's role as the Keaton-mask, as it's origin is said to be based on that Pokemon. Maybe somebody else still likes it better with Pikachu, but that's perfectly fine, as this cross-over isn't official, just fan-art built and drawn with my ideas. Though I appreciate to hear other people's opinions and point of views. :iconbowplz:
Oh man, I didn't notice I wrote the name wrong in description... Thank you for telling, I'll fix it right away! ^^'

Awesome! But what was the thought behind making Link a banette?
Reply
:iconstorytelleri:
Storytelleri Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Student General Artist
I've explained it earlier, but oh well: The true reason for this blankness and apparent muteness lies in Link's own essence: He seems to be the personification of the immersion experience, and in that way he is an extension of the player, a "link" between the player and the Zelda universe. Miyamoto and Nintendo designers themselves pointed out several times that the focus of the series lies in the player's personal experiences and in the concept of "the player being the hero," with Link as his/her avatar. In that way, he was made blank so the human player can fill him with his/her own characteristics, experiences, motivations, feelings, thoughts and emotions; this is in order to allow the player to enter this fantasy world and to have an intimate experience with it, and with those who live in it.    -Zelda Wiki, source:zeldawiki.org/Link
So Link's personality is exactly as somebody wants it: brave, serious, appellant, or perhaps reluctant hero without choises. Also, Bulbapedia and Pokedex isn't always correct with their information, as it claims that Raichu could knock down Indian elephant with it's Thunder, when there's no such animal in Pokemon world. And Shedinja has never been shown to take soul when it's back is facing somebody. So even if Banette is said to be vengeful for being thrown away by human, then how does that Pokemon exist in Pokemon Mystery Dungeons, when in those worlds there are no humans at all? So yeah...
In other words, for comical, move-set and appearance reasons I chose Link to be Banette (and Shuppet as young Link). Personally I think Link is more of a teenager at MM, so this Banette in pic is level 37, than Shuppet. ...Sorry for this wall of text. Hopefully this cleared my reason to choose Banette (and Shuppet) as Link.

I don't think I understand...I mean, I get the part about Link being a blank slate for the player to project on. I actually enjoy that while playing the game. Link is me! :D
I don't really get the thing about banette...Is is supposed to be a blank kind of pokemon with no personality? Sorry, I never learned much about banette. All I really know is that it is supposed to be a cursed doll.
I've never played Mystery Dungeon, so I can't answer that for you. I'm not sure I get the point about the pokedex entries you mentioned, either.

Storytelleri Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Student General Artist
Well, I meant that people can see Link as any Pokemon they see to fit him most. In my case it's Banette, and as I said, I chose that Pokemon to this cross-over for comical, move-set and appearance reasons. All Pokemons, along wit Banette, can have any kind of personality, so even if Banette is claimed to be vengeful ghost doll, I have that Pokemon (in Pokemon Soul Silver) with gentle-nature in it's status, and that makes me think Pokedex entries more of a myth than "fact". This Link-Banette can have any kind of personality I choose for him. Also, I don't take Ghost -type Pokemon as somebody who has died, but more likely as beings which have naturally born like that.
     My point at Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is that if Pokedex entries really are true, human-made Pokemons (such as Banette, Voltorb, Rotom etc.) wouldn't exist in there. But because they exists in Pokemon-only -worlds in those games, then Pokedex entries really are just a myth. Regardless of that, they are interesting to read. If you are not sure what Pokedex entries holds of each Pokemon, and there are Pokemons you are interested to know more of, that's where Bulbapedia is for: bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wik… :)

CrimzonLogic Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Student General Artist
Ah, okay. I never really believed the pokedex entries to be completely true, either. If they were , then every single cubone would wear its dead mother's skull, and that means cubone mothers could only have one baby. That would make them go extinct after a while! And phantumps couldn't be bred in the game if they are always created from the souls of dead lost children. That has to be just a myth about how they first came into being. 
Yep, Bulbapedia is my favorite website to look up pokemon stuff. That and Serebii. They are both very helpful, especially for the game info. They are good for deciding which attacks to pick. :D
