COMMISSION - Mystery Dungeon by mewgal COMMISSION - Mystery Dungeon by mewgal
Janus asked me to draw this picture for him and it's SO SAD. Sorry for any spoilers, it's the ending of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky. He played as Vulpix, he and his parter were both male and when he sent me the transcription of the ending, we both teared up. ;A;


Shinx: Hey! Janus. *re-enters from offscreen, question mark overhead* Huh? Janus... What is it? What's wrong with you...?
Janus-Vulpix: ...Sorry, Shinx. I kept this to myself for a long time... It looks like... I have to say good-bye...
Shinx: *alarmed* What?! Good-bye?! What do you mean?!
Janus-Vulpix: Dusknoir told me. If we changed the future, Pokemon from the future would disappear... That's why... I'm destined to disappear too.
Shinx: *alarmed* Huh? What? Wh-why? Wh-why...? I don't understand!
Janus-Vulpix: Thank you for everything. I'm going to disappear form here now... but, Shinx... I'll never forget you.

Shinx: *sad* W-wait a second... I only made it this far because you were with me, Janus. *tears in eyes* Don't you understand...? You made me strong, Janus... If you go, Janus... I... I don't know... what I would...
Janus-Vulpix: No, Shinx. You have to be strong on your own. You have to live! You have to go home... tell everyone about what happened here. So that... nothing like this happens ever again.
Shinx: Urk... Janus...
Janus-Vulpix: (...!) *sparks of light get even stronger* (The light... the light is getting brighter...)
Shinx: Don't, Janus! Don't... don't go...

Every playthrough, this always gets to me. I know the game is for kids (heck, I watch MLP lol) but this is a very mature situation and very relatable to real life. The threat of losing those close to you is constantly there. We have to appreciate what time we do have with them and grow from the shared experiences. This is one of the reasons I really like PMD. For one, it actually focuses on the pokemon aspect of the world, how it is separate yet connected to the humans. There are memorable characters, lore, and moments that get you hooked into the story.

This was one of the few moments that a video game made me cry.
This is just a piece of true art. The blend of colors, the emotion demonstrated in this picture - a masterpiece. I love this picture so much!

When this happend I cried my eyes out and my team is vulpix and shins

It was so sad when I played this. Funny my partner was a shinx as well.

Damn you eyes! Stop leaking water! T_T
I played Blue Rescue, and the ending was so similar. I cried when I had to go. I had grown attached to my partner and all the pokemon I interacted with. When I was leaving, I was wishing HARD that this was not the end. I didn't want the adventures to end! Then it mentioned wishing hard enough to return. Well...I WAS WISHING HARD DAMMIT! XD

I'm just cryin' right now :'( 
Beatiful drawing (^-^)
EonFoxQueen97 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013
My exactly same team in Explorers of Sky! OwO The only difference is that I am a female Vulpix:D (Big Grin) 
Loved this and the sequel! You're so good!Love (Sorry for my english...)
Vanangard Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013
but.. to play as vulpix you need to have the relaxe nature and be a female. so how can he have gotten vulpix as a male.. thats the only thing thats got me confused but other than that pretty awesome drawing.
mewgal Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013
Yep. The person who commissioned it went ahead and did that to be able to play as vuplix!
ZaneusNova Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Awwww, so sad. :icondragoncryingplz:
MayorMeerkat Featured By Owner May 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I had the same team ^^
Topefr Featured By Owner May 30, 2013
That scene is almost as sad as the original's man D':
Miaosha Featured By Owner May 26, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I cried the second time I played too, even though I knew what would happen. Very few characters just GET me like this!
xTheShinyMewGirlx Featured By Owner May 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
When I played this, I almost cried. Either Pokémon is quite strange, or just gets you all emotional... ^^ I began tearing up. Then, SPOILER I appeared on the beach END SPOILER and cried. I just wish I 1) wasn't at my friends house. 2) he didn't know it was Pokémon.
MorFaeSparLightning Featured By Owner May 4, 2013  Student General Artist
First time I played theses type of games (explorers of time) I cried my eyes out for 2 hours straight!
It was one of the most depressing moments I have ever experience in any pokemon game ever!
Very great job here, reminds me of the ending of explorers of sky when the main hero vulpix (Faelyna)
had to leave my partner shinx (Sparky) forever...even though I saw this coming...I still cried my eyes out.
Just comes to show how sad and depressing theses mystery dungeon games can really be.:(

Again great job on this! :)

(I can't remember if I already commented so sorry if I did, short term memory)

When I got to this part in the game I cried so hard. The dialouge makes it all the more heartbreaking. </3 I even cried when relistening to this song on the Sky Jukebox. It was such an emotional moment...
Dovewing11 Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love it :') The feels xD I plan on doing this scene with my PMD characters
Moonbriar Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Really good art. I was a vulpix, too, but my partner was an eevee. By that time, I had already beaten PMD Red Rescue Team and PMD Explorers of Darkness, so I was just like: 'l have to do this a THIRD TIME?! Wwwwhhhyyyyy?!!! Bah, I'll come back.'
Inkweaver22 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013
I think this ending is sadder than Rescue Team... I cried... A LOT.
Dianathecat116 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, considering at the end of Rescue Team, you get revived and go back to your partner, but in EoS you go permenatly, yes. This ending is A LOT sadder than Rescure team.

It's not permanent..
You appear on the beach later and get to continue o.O
