Somnignon/ FAKE by A-Pinnari Somnignon/ FAKE by A-Pinnari
Yeah, that was fake... There's no point in hiding it now!

So I posted this yesterday on 4chan, pretending to be a video game journalist and everything, and apparently, a lot of people believed it.
I even made mistakes in the description on purpose just to make the whole thing more legit. XD But it was a lot of fun, the arguments were priceless!

Some people were disappointed that it's fake. I'm really sorry!:<

The fake was not flawless though;
The back leg of Somnignon was kinda strange, the background of the pokemon-amie screenshot was just the reversed version of a pic with Froakie from serebii, and I forgot to add the weird texture Ken Sugimori usually uses on his artwork. Seriously, everyone always forgot about this texture when it's the easiest way to see if a picture is fake or not.

I fixed it in this version of the arwork. Oh and btw, here's the WIP of the sprite for those of you who asked me how I make them.

So you're the one who made this little cutey? I will admit I was one who was disappointed that it was fake. But I had a feeling it was. Not because you messed up or anything. There were just so many fakes going around at that time. Still wish it was real.

Why would you do this. Sort of horrible to go out of your way to lie to a bunch of people and get their hopes up about something that doesnt exist.

Doing fakemon is one thing, telling people its real and blatantly lying to honest fans is another. Did you just want the attention of people arguing over the legitimacy of your fakemon? Whats the deal? Why go out of your way to try and lie to people? Its a cute design, but thats needlessly mean.

I figured this little guy was fake but was still pretty disappointed. Would've loved to use one. Oh well, I can dream of a fakemon game with him in it :D

Hoped this Pokemon was real and bought the game because my friend knew I loved ferrets. I bought it, and found this. Welp, there goes forty bucks... Nice job pissing people off. c:
Your fake-mon was great! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Good artwork, you really had me fooled.

Listen, if fakes bother you, stop looking for leaks. It's 2 weeks until release, there are going to be faked leaks, tons of 'em. You only have yourself to blame.

Why should a fan blame themselves for other people going out of their way to spread fake information? Its not their fault some people get a kick out of people believing their shit.

While I unfortunately figured it was fake from the first time I saw it, largely because I've become so suspicious I almost don't believe the actual XY site itself, I do gotta say that you made an absolutely adorable little pokemon that I WISH was real!
