You'll be a Nintendo fan, just like your uncle by vincentbatignole You'll be a Nintendo fan, just like your uncle by vincentbatignole
"You'll be a Nintendo fan, just like your uncle!"

here it is! the christmas gift i've done for my nephew's very first christmas, except of course the real final version will be printed and in french :3

ok he's only going to be 4 months old this month, but it's never too early to start teaching him about awesome stuff! i just can't wait for him to be able to hold an NES controller :')

EDIT: thank you so much for the DD!! seriously, it was the best christmas gift ever :happycry:
i'll reply after the christmas holidays but i just wanted to apologize to the people who were offended by my "girls are stupid" comment. first because i actually think the complete opposite, but really because it's nothing but a silly joke to refer to how little boys think when they're really young, while also pointing out the fact that DK prefered giving up on kidnapping girls so he could protect and look for bananas...and no, i wont apologize for Magikarp! I WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR THAT!!! :evillaugh:

"You'll be a Nintendo fan, just like your uncle!"

I might say that to my 2-year-old nephew.
pengie9290 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013
Should have put legendaries in the pokemon section, like Mew, Mewtwo, or Arceus. Just my opinion. It's still cool.

BTW, who on earth are you apologizing to about the Magikarp comment? I have a feeling that most of your viewers are thanking you for that!

But...Magikarp becomes Gyarados. And Gyarados is a monster!
iLosm Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I'm sure it's already been pointed out, but the Donkey Kong in the Country games is a different Donkey Kong than the one in the original arcade game. If I'm correct, Cranky Kong is the old Donkey Kong.

Still, every time I look at this, I get a big ol' grin. You have one lucky little nephew. :)

Don't catch magikarp, Kids He only turns into a Gyarados!

Catch a Bidoof or something, they're useful!

I ROFLed at the Legend of Zelda one... You're referring to the fact that the title is not reflective of the hero, correct? And the common mistake many first timers make by naming the hero "Zelda" when his name is really Link, right? I did that the first time I played, anyway... :iconembarrasedplz: Agreed with the Magikarp one... just catch an extra Pikachu and trade it for a Gyrados instead... :XD:

Do you realize your error now! Don't challenge The Immortal and Invincible Grand Emperor Ryan! >( Other than that, if you apologize, then i'm sorry. But use wiser judgement next time.

Cute work! Congratulations on the DD! :iconflowerheartplz:
Dancrew2010 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
You do realize that Magikarp evolves into a Gyarados, right?

Well, To tell you the truth about Magikarp and Gyarados, It was based off of a Japanese myth when a Humble Carp has swam up the waterfall and through the Dragon's gate. Thus, Making this humble Carp transform into a Dragon.

Don't believe me? Watch this episode of Game Exchange: [link]

Very nice, a very impressive picture, but all those worlds belong to Grand Emperor Ryan the invincible and immortal master of villains, i'm the man in black armor who has the power to defeat gods and goddesses and will rule the universe. Pokemon will be controlled by The Rocket and Cipher Empires, and all others by the villains who reside there. All hail the Grand Emperor, that was fun, anyway good job.

teipig Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
but he evolves into gyradose
RubberyParts Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
yes, but he only learns tackle at level 15. he has the slowest growth rate possible. due to his lack of moves, this makes it harder. it's like an even harder to train Tynamo. Also, gyarados has the same problem. learns powerful moves really late instead of at the proper level
