I've been seeing this posted around the internet a lot recently (a version with a horrible job of removing my watermark, to boot). This is a really shitty thing to happen and I wish it would stop! Please respect artists, source your links and DO NOT REMOVE THEIR WATERMARKS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! You're just being an asshole then!


You ever have one of those moments when you get an idea and you have to throw everything else down and draw it? Yeah that's what happened here.
And the moment I got it I thought "oh that's too obvious I bet it's been done a million times already", but searching up 'how to train your dragon pokemon' (what else would I have searched?) on dA brought up a bunch of irrelevant stuff and Charizards. I was shocked!

I've been in a huge Pokemon swing recently (I blame like a dozen of my classmates entering #bigskycarnival xD) and watched HtTYD over the weekend.

Yes, I know Charizard is not a Dragon-type and Garchomp can't fly. It's artistic licence! I went by which Pokemon best matched the dragons visually. People have suggested Salamence instead of Garchomp. Really? Salamence looks NOTHING like a Deadly Nadder! At least Garchomp has a similar body type.

First time drawing everyone but Flygon and Dragonite >_> I hope I never have to draw Garchomp again. wtf turbo-jet head growths?

Was hoping to find an Awkward Marketing Picture that had all the cast flying on their dragons to copy poses from but only found one for Hiccup and Astrid o.O The other dragons are posed like their Awkward Marketing Pictures, I just had to make up their riders' poses.

Please do not copy, redistribute, edit, claim as your own, or otherwise!!

This is wonderfully made. I love the concept. Great job. 

Only thing I would suggest is giving Hiccup the Mega Evolved Charizard X as it looks more like Toothless, and giving the guy who has a charizard a different one. Unless this was made before Pokemon X/Y, in that case I retract my statement. lol.

I think you should reconsidered that Garchomp CAN fly. In the anime, He was able to fly or glide and in the profile it says; "When it folds up its body and extends its wings, it looks like a jet plane. It flies at sonic speed". The Game probably doesn't let him learn to fly because he's not the flying type. Dustox can fly but not the flying type, Gliscor can like glide or fly but also not the flying type. Some of pokemon were able to float but not the flying types. In the Game, Garchomp can't learn fly just because he's the not flying type.

I think that Garchomp doesn't fly as much as it glides. It's the same reason Gliscor can't learn Fly.

I also love that in the anime charzard is such a hard headed brat sometimes and so is hookfang. Lol also charzard can be a dragon type now! I know you made this a while back, Holy crap 2011? When did httyd come out? God I feel old. But if you ever think of updating/redoing this Noivern would make a great Toothless, but that's the only one I would really even think to change. All the others fit so perfectly.

Actually, I think Dragonite would be better for Toothless, because Dragonite doesn't have teeth.

I personally think Charizard is dragon like enough to count. Plus I would of switch some of the riders and I would have used Salamence instead of Garchomp. But hey several people are charmed by your idea and skill. This sure was a real treat for them to see. So sorry about you having to put up with art thieves.

Garchomp can't learn the move fly however it's said in it's pokedex entry that it can fly at sonic speeds like a jet
and Charzard may not be a dragon type but it is in the Dragon egg group so it still counts as a dragon!

How can I thank you enough? You've merged my favourite two things together into one beautiful picture, and I think your work is amazing. Great job! If you'll do one for HTTYD 2, I think my life will be complete. 

Oh, and I love your Garchomp and Hydreigon. Pokemon X How to Train Your Dragon FTW!
