This looks like the Whomp's big brother.

I think it's more related to Rocky, who is literally a smaller version. Also known as Condensed Sand in the JP version.

Let’s call him “Whump”.
I prefer the name Sandman Dragora. And these two are related for my fanon. The other one here in that case is called Rocky Bouldera.

We've had 21 new moves datamined from Pokémon Home, one being Zarude's Jungle Healing and two presumably being Urshifu's moves

Article is in Spanish but they have a table for the English names further in

Can't believe we're getting Donkey Kong with Expanding Force
"Rising Voltage"
"Wicked Blow"
"Dual Wingbeat"

These and several of the other names are legitimately cool-sounding.

Jungle healing?


Why am I suddenly getting early 2000's meme flashbacks

I can't sleep right now so I'm watching Treasure Planet.

I quite loved that movie a lot as a child, and I feel It does still hold up.
Same here. I remember when I first watched it as a kid, I was mesmerized by all the CG environments... and even now after re-watching it now that I'm older, I still think it looks amazing, even if it's easy to tell that it's early-2000's CG.

I am quite excited about that new Twitch project.
The idea of making my own Pac-Man mazes and competing on them live really catches my attention.

The Minecraft DLC also looks really good!!!

And yeah, glad to see Namco doing stuff with the IP up to this day!

There’s something cool about the new Pac-Man Minecraft DLC, besides the DLC itself:

It seems to have Pac-Man World references, even if a small amount; the world outside the maze/arcade area is called “Pac-Man World,” and the Pac-Ranger NPC from World 2 is playable. I thought Namco wanted to pretend the series doesn’t exist, so that’s cool.

Did you get the chance to see the sketches I shared on the last page?

So I mentioned that I was gonna share more of my Pac-Man sketches similar to this one.

These are all characters from existing Pac-Man games aside from Dig Dug, Mappy and Kissy (Baraduke) and I wanted to bring them all into my ideas for a new game/animation series. Tagging @Guh-Huzzah!
Woah, ok these are seriously amazing.

I love how you managed to take Pac-Man characters from different games and with completely changed artstyles and meshed them all together in a really fitting and wonderful artstyle.

Maybe other people have told you this before, but you have a lot of talent when It comes to character redesign man.

I'm too much of a coward to do a genocide run. I'm just gonna do another pacifist run and then the online sans fight.
Dude, the online Sans fight is LIFE! It helps me experience said famous battle without actually DOING the genocide route lol. I care about the characters too much, and besides, the level griding would get really boring for me.

Also, what I've also found fun to do, just to up the entertainment value of the online sans fight is to play OTHER boss tracks over it while you fight, and see which songs match up well. The Smash version of Megalovania is obviously gorgeous, but through experimentation caused by boredom, I learned that the Shadow Queen phase themes from TTYD also work shockingly well, phase 1 for the first half, and phase 2 for the second half.

Thank you dude! I’ve been concerned that the designs would clash too much, but I’m glad you like them and to hear you say that. It would be a big dream to officially work on something like this someday.

I'd say to keep doing It and sooner or later you could be hired by a big gaming company.

Remember the character redesigns for Spyro Reignited Trilogy? They were all designed by a Twitter artist who made fan art and the people at Toys For Bob seriously loved.
