    What, did you really think I'd forget about the 2 megas here? Nope. Beedrill seems to have dipped its everything in some of that Joker sludge.

    It's time for the third installment of Project Rainbow! Our contestants today are:

    A Rattata and Raticate which I don't quite like, but I like the concepts for:
    #019: Rattata-- rattataShiny1.png

    Some birds patterned after a picture I saw following a google search of 'pretty sparrow'
    #021: Spearow-- spearowShiny1.png

    Some sneaky-ass desert snakes:

    Whoa it's another one! This time I got super carried away with monster hunter designs, and then I really wanted to do something, you know, MOON RELATED for Clefairy. Anyway:

    Nidoqueen's line, inspired by the Rathian:
    #029: Nidoran (F)-- nidoranfShiny1.png
    #030: Nidorina-- nidorinaShiny1.png
    #031: Nidoqueen-- nidoqueenShiny1.png

    Nidoking's line, inspired by the Rathalos:
    #032: Nidoran (M)-- nidoranmShiny1.png
    #033: Nidorino-- nidorinoShiny1.png
    #034: Nidoking-- nidokingShiny1.png

    A much more lunar Clefairy and Clefable:

    #035: Clefairy-- clefairyShiny1.png
    #036: Clefable-- clefableShiny1.png

    Vulpix doesn't look like puke anymore! Yay! And Ninetales is looking pretty ghostly...

    Aww yiss it's time for another one! Puffs, bats, smelly plants, and mushroom bugs!

    First, some very pumpkin-y puffs!
    #039: Jigglypuff-- jigglypuffShiny2.png
    #040: Wigglytuff-- wigglytuffShiny2.png

    For some reason I remembered hellbats from Starcraft and decided to make some:
    #041: Zubat-- zubatShiny1.png
    #042: Golbat-- golbatShiny1.png

    Plants that go from frozen, to thawed, to dried:
    #043: Oddish-- oddishShiny2.png
    #044: Gloom-- gloomShiny2.png
    #045: Vileplume-- vileplumeShiny2.png

    And some more nocturnally designed mushbois!

    Whoa whaddup it's a full 10-shiny bonanza here! My reason for keeping these to batches of 8-10 is that the site only lets you post a maximum of 10 pictures at a time (without being an admin), and I'd hate to double post or leave an evo line unfinished. Without further ado, 10 OF 'EM FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE:

    I decided to turn Venonat into a soot sprite from spirited away:
    #048: Venonat-- venonatShiny1.png
    #049: Venomoth-- venomothShiny1.png

    I made my favorite doofy sausages into ice-melting macaronis monsters:
    #050: Diglett-- diglettShiny1.png
    #051: Dugtrio-- dugtrioShiny1.png

    I started making a black lucky cat design, and finished before realizing how Alolan this looks. Don't worry, there will be something... alternative:
    #052: Meowth-- meowthShiny1.png
    #053: Persian-- persianShiny1.png

    I made Psyduck a lot pinker, and Golduck the obligatory black:
    #054: Psyduck-- psyduckShiny1.png
    #055: Golduck-- golduckShiny2.png
    And finally, I made Mankey and Primape ANGRIER:
    #056: Mankey-- mankeyShiny1.png
    #057: Primape-- primapeShiny1.png

    BUUUUUUUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! Whenever I get way too many ideas for one Pokemon, I'll pick one for the project, and make the rest for the hell of it, just so that the ideas don't get wasted. In this case, I wanted to make Meowths for each lucky cat color, and I picked black for the project:

    #062: Poliwrath-- poliwrathShiny1.png

    Holy shit it's been a hot minute since my last update to this!

    Some much more angry fighters, with a pink Machamp because everyone knows that pink makes you buff:

    #079: Slowpoke-- slowpokeShiny.png
    #080: Slowbro-- slowbroShiny1.png

    Something gold must have bit me, because the magnets are golden too:
    #081: Magnemite-- magnemiteShiny.png

    WHAAAAAAT!? 8 more!? And so soon after the last one!? And even a mega from last time!? What is this madness???

    #08M: Mega Slowbro-- megaslowbroShiny.png

    I feel like these birds look like some kind of holiday mascots, but I have no idea which holiday they'd be for:
    #084: Doduo-- doduoShiny.png
    #085: Dodrio-- dodrioShiny.png

    Some MUCH more realistically-colored seals:
    #086: Seel-- seelShiny.png
    #087: Dewgong-- dewgongShiny.png

    I never realized just how much you can do with Grimer and Muk before I made these blue slimes:
    #088: Grimer-- grimerShiny.png
    #089: Muk-- mukShiny.png

    And finally, some much more sandy-colored scallops, complete with a black pearl for maximum edge-thetic:
