Oy. Those spirally boils all over that thing's body are kind of gross. The realistic eyeballs and exaggeration of magcargo's melty mouth give a great frightening effect. I guess giant snails are kind of frightening in their own right, so enormous snails made of lava are naturally even moreso.

Though I would have liked to see this one with a flaming radula.

I like the kind of stylistic way you drew its plume of flame on the top. The spirally lines in between give a pretty neat effect. I also think the bloody lines in the background go well with magcargo's red colouration. Good work on this menacing mollusc.

EW SNAIL! :iconikillitplz: I can't stand snails. I'm cool with most stuff in horrors but almost didn't make it through that chapter of Uzumaki.

And your whole gallery is amazing. :3

Oh god, not the spirals again.

Same here. Doesn't quite beat the odd quirkiness of Parallel Works 2 (the one with the pinball machine), but it's surprisingly well-synced...and it makes a fair bit of sense.

Actually, something else occurred to us. You don't plan on making an Uzumaki reference with Whirlipede, right? (There's no way you'd be able to stick a human face on its head.)

Maybe Beedrill should be punching through a Rhyperior with...uh...*has no idea if Beedrill learns any drill-like moves*...okay, plan B: Fearow! GIGA...DRILL...Beak?

Yep! TTGL is known for (the Mighty) Kamina, Simon (the Digger), Yoko (big breasts, bigger guns, and four years short of being legal, apparently), Viral (poster boy for shiny teeth, slasher smiles, and being even more badass as a hero than a villain), drills, Lordgenome (punches out mecha WITH HIS BARE EFFING HANDS), big drills, mecha that get increasingly huge over the course of the series, REALLY big drills, endless memes, ridiculous amounts of awesomeness and mood whiplash, REALLY, REALLY BIG DRILLS, and an eponymous mecha that is measured in LIGHT YEARS. Oh, and it has an even bigger super mode in the second movie. It is so manly, it could pwn PFH Mewtwo...with only Lagann.

My drill is the drill that will pierce the heavens! WHEEEEE.

Is TTGL the one with Viral in it? Because I think he's absolutely awesome, but I can't remember for sure if that's the anime.

...YOU LOON! You're doing it wrong! "Uzumaki" spirals go IN, not out! You're thinking "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann"...which is kind of like the total opposite of "Uzumaki".

...If you somehow manage to make a TTGL reference in one of your PFHs while still making it scary, we may be forced to dub you a goddess.

...As a Pokemon from Hell, this is pretty good. Not sure if we buy the whole "Uzumaki" spin on it, though...needs a few more vaguely human features to sell it to us. You somehow managed to make it even MORE spirally than the original Snail People, however...if that's even possible. Really draws in the eye.

Somehow, we think the manga would have turned out differently if people were transforming into Magcargo instead of normal snails. Bad enough to end up as a gastropod, but as a gastropod made out of LAVA? Things would've spiralled out of control much faster. On the other hand, instant cremation for everyone else-and it would've been a major twist! Keep up the good work-you're just whirling through the Pokedex, aren't you?

Reference to Uzumaki - a few people turned into giant snails, which were later eaten because human beings couldn't find food.

I know. I was reading Uzumaki (yes, thanks to you, damn you) and that song came on randomly. I wasn't paying attention, but then I started hearing "The spiraling shape will make you go insane! (Everyone wants to see that thing!)." It was a little surreal for a moment.
