Chesnaught [Alternate palette] by Haychel Chesnaught [Alternate palette] by Haychel
Chesnaught is the final evolution of Chespin~ I don't really like its original palette so I changed it to Chespin/Quilladin palette~ Which one do you prefer more? :3

This actually looks a lot like shiny Chesnaught! O: Shiny Chesnaught
I do prefer it to the regular color scheme! ^-^

Well, the reason Chesnaught was pale is because Chespin's line was based on a knight, a hedgehog, the life cycle of a chestnut.


Chespin - little hedgehog with green spiky chestnut surrounding. If you look at its back, you see a small circle


Quilladin - bigger hedgehog. The circle at the back of Chespin's head is where its face would go, as it had more armor on that side. The chestnut armor also expanded, which is what actual chestnuts do when they're almost ripe.


Chesnaught - huge hedgehog. The unripened or premature chestnut itself is brown and the outer covering is green, which is why Chespin and Quilladin are their respective colors. Chesnaught's color came from it being fully grown and after a chestnut is fully grown and ripened, it splits in two and has the pale color.

I love this, aaa.
If this was his color palette I definitely would have chose him.

The original design has way too much tan and it looks yucky.

This is actually incredibly similar to the shiny design. Well done!

I wish this was it's palette ... it makes Chesnaught so much more appealing.

I do like this color better.  I've always gone with the Water-starter in the games, but since Chespin is the FIRST mammalian Grass-starter (literally EVERY Grass starter has been reptilian), I was like GOTTA CHOOSE HIM!

You're right, the color palette is a bit off. I also think the horizontal lines on its body are a little weird. I suppose they're emant to look like a chainmail, but it could have been executed better by Sugimori.
