Cosido a tu Capote by darksilvania Cosido a tu Capote by darksilvania
New Powermon, This one has been wandering in my head for almost a month, and I finally found the courage to put it on paper

???-BRAVADOR (Bravado-Matador)
-Steel
-Toreador Pokemon
-Signature Move: Estocada*
-"BRAVADOR are well known for their courage and fighting style, which is both graceful and cruel. They prefer to taunt their opponents until they grow to tired to fight, so they can finish them with they signature move. This pokemon strength can be measured by the size of the horns that come out from its shoulders."

*Steel type/ 5 PP/ 30% Acc/ The user hits the foe with a fast and strong slash in a strategical weak point. 1-Hit KO if it hits.

Well, if you hasnt figured it yet, BRAVADOR is based on a Torero, a Bullfighter from Spanish culture (and some parts of latin america, like Mexico)

I like bulfights, not much for the Bull killing, but for the plastic beauty that involves all of it, like the suits, the tradition, the indumentary and all of that, even the beautiful movements of the capote. Everything is ok until they start to cut the bull.

So, BRAVADOR body is supposed to resemble a Traje de luces (Suit of Lights) and his hands are supposed to look like "Banderillas" or "Estoques", which are the Toreador's Blades.

"Estocada" move is supposed to be based in the Final Strike used to kill the bull, so thats why it is a 1-hit KO move.

Well, hope you like it and see ya later

Is it an evolution of Bisharp or maybe an alternate evolution of Pawniard?

Pardon me, but would a matador not have that length of red cloth traditionally depicted as being used to taunt the bull?
Other than that, it looks fuckin awesome.

So what bothers you is when they kill the bull (putting out of its misery) and cutting it (not wasting the food)?

What about when they fucking shoot the bull while the crowd cheers on the bull's struggle to live and make it suffer in a small enclosed arena in cruel ways? Doesn't that bother you??? Fuck Torero's and fuck all who go there to watch a bull die for no logical reason at all...

you are free to express you opinion as you want, but first, they dont shoot the bulls in bullfighting, "torturing a bull" its relative as I can say the same about a rode where people just make fun of the bull by trying to mount it when he obviously doesnt want to be mounted, and you may insult the bullfighting, but insulting everyone who goes there is not correct as they are people too, just like you, who are not perfect either.So next time think before rambling.

amine999 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011
Dude, everyone is people... in that case who can you talk about? There is no one else BUT people there... and bull mounting isn't as bad as bull fighting... as u can tell from the names... i'd rather be mounted and laughed at rather than shot and pissed off with my hated color and putting me on a rampage just so i could die at the end of your show...

How is this right? [link] all they're doing is pissing it off, to show the crowd they can tame a bull by enraging it? And not being perfect doesn't justify what your doing isn't wrong...

AND THIS IS EXACTLY BULL FIGHTING WHILE STICKING SPEARS AT THE BULL [link]

you're one of those who still believe the red color thing? bulls are colorblind.

I dont need to see videos, I'm Mexican, I've seen the real thing. Thats why I dont expect people like you, who are Canadian, to understand the cultural impact of bullfighting. What am I asking is you to not insult people just because they do something you consider wrong under your own moral codes, moral is subjective.

:iconamine999:
amine999 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011
Okay,so they're color blind.

But please, tell me what kind of twisted cultural impact would killing a bull or enraging it have on people?

At least, when you're canadian, you don't torture animals for your own needs. There's nothing that can justify killing an animal in front of hundreds of people to help your "culture" feel alive...

Morals are subjective? Derangement is apathetic...

Well anyways, arguing with you about this is pointless, it won't stop bullfighting, and it won't solve anything so let's just forget about this.

Arguing like this only makes enemies out of friends. Personally, I think that if they use the meat of the bull, it's a bit better than killing an animal without giving it a fighting chance. BUT IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME, THAT'S FINE.

I was kind of surprised that an official Pokemon sinks it's blades into it's prey. Kinda gruesome, which is awesome, but it's also a bit disturbing.
