Finally, all morning... hand cramped...

"Howdy! I have someone to thank for this one! Thanks
for bringing up the subject of Orihime and the rest of Coco's team. With the new Johto set coming soon, it was surely primetime to update Coco's outfit, but what about her team of pokemon?
Without a doubt, Orihime, Coco's long time companion since childhood, will always remain in a researved position on Coco's team. But the new faces within her group raise questions. After championing three leagues (I did go back to Emerald and FireRed after beating Pearl to tide time until Platinum) and reassuring her ranks in her home region, Coco has developed her own telekenetic powers, luring in and finding her own interest in locating Pokemon that can telecommunicate through mental thought patterns as well.
While on her travels, she had run across a pair of Eevolutions.
The Espeon is a rather serious individual, not excepting the idea of the trainer giving her a nickname and instead demanded that she be called by a name she had already adopted as her own, Ky.
The Glaceon was appearently someone Ky couldn't bare to part with, the Glaceon itself being a rather lax creature, taking everything in stride, but at the same time, keeping Ky in-line with a constant ear nibbling. Ky noted that she liked the name Cherry... Coco noticed that 'Cherry' seemed to giggle impishly as this was mentioned.
Later in her travels, she stumbles upon an ever elusive Suicune sitting atop the water on a frozen lake. Intrigued, Coco gave it a chase battle and caught it with a little cleverness. It begrudgingly gave in at first, but has learned that Coco's interests are in protecting people, and aids her when needed. Goes by North, liking the legends behind it.
All through her journey, Coco learned of the mighty legend of Lugia. The thought of challenging such a strong psychic pokemon made her giddy with joy, so she has set out in search of it directly.
While on her search, she managed upon a little egg. Taking care of it with motherly instinct, she found one night it sprung into livelyhood, a tiny baby Azurill greeting her that morning with a warm cuddling in her bosom, much to Coco's embaressment. She and Orihime take turns carrying the adorable little thing, tending to it like loving mothers. They named the baby Tide.
It was Orihime that finally challenged the great legend, pitting their experienced powers against each other... In the end, Lugia joined Coco's group with a promise to protect the seas along with the little daughter of an honorable coast guard captian. (Capt. Warde in the works) His nickname is what makes up the team name, Typhoon, though he's rather calm at heart.
So anyways... As you can see, Coco extremely spoils Orihime and the others. The estranged trainer always seems to pick something up for one of them during a shopping trip, and since Orihime stays out-of-ball all the time, she gets her own chance to look around at things she likes, so Orihime has her own fashion sense.
Ky likes to go simply with a necklace and bracelet... strangely enough, she had the piercings when Coco found her and Cherry. Cherry herself likes to bundle up with a hefty scarf and sleep for hours on end.
Coco has yet to find anything big enough to fit on Typhoon and North... she's considerate that Tide is too young to be THAT spoiled yet.
Overall, another one of Coco's reasons for traveling to Johto was upon getting a message from Cythia that she had recently discovered some new ruins there to be examined~
And what attack is Orihime Using?
Alrighty, sorry for my yabbering on with story and what not. I should probably save it all for some prose entry sometime, eh? heheh~
As far as why this came about in the first place, I was really working on another project first, Julian in a chinese dress... unfortunately i didn't feel like the sketchs nor the lineart came out right, so i distracted myself with drawing Orihime in an attack pose... didn't like that at all either, so i worked on another pose at another angle... it did come out right, and you see whats above is the finish product. I liked it so much i made the picture bigger to fit in the whole team. =3
I wish i could put this to music *hinthintDA*. Maybe if all else fails, I'll start doing one of those crappy youtube montages... nah. I'll save that for when i actually get some animation going, though I might be late on the whole caramelldansen thing for Tia... ah well.
Alright enough! If you anna know anything else, just ask or comment... plz! I like comments! No, I love them! comment comment comment! Does this make me egotistical?"
*passed out murmuring* tired tired... tired...... all day... tired...
