You know, one of the actually pretty cool things about pkmn is, that nintendo does not fucking care about color patches. They change the colors of their pkmn so often and even go so far to switch shiny and normal versions over generations.
Besides Chicorita (which used to was yellow on the first Sugimori artworks) one of my favs is Vulpix. As kid I always was confused when I wanted to color my vulpix characters.
And now after 20 years, look how often they changed Vulpix´s colors:
Vulpix colors by JB-Pawstep 
Even if we take the two most used ones. The one after the Sugimori art with the more pinkish (red-ish) tails and hair and the current one with the orange hair and tail... I like both but I think I like the more pinkish (red-ish) one  better. Since this was how it looked when the entire pkmn thing started.

Also the first picture (the sugimori one) looks so like the shiny version till black and white xD
Also visible here:

Lets also put the black white one next to the new xy one:
037.png037.gif I wonder why they turned the hair and tails orange. But the reason for this journal is, I want to do a vulpix next as amigurumi. And I think I won´t do an orange haired one xD

Anyway. Which one do you prefer? (And don´t say the alolan one. We all love it but this is just about the original Vulpix) :D

this was very interesting, I really love vulpix; thanks for putting this together! I have to say that I don't like either of the two sprites on the bottom more than the other :'D.
What I really like is that you are canonically left open to variation <333

haha, I actually have that card!! :3

I love this too :D They did this to so many pkmn. One of my personal favs is Chikorita, which used to be yellow on the very first Sugimori arts :D
OR BULBASAUR! It was blue back then and darn I loved it this way. But one of the things that confused me a lot is Golduck. It always was dark blue and then the Anime comes and BAMs a light neon freaking blue Golduck in our faces. xD" back then, I didn´t realize how many pkmn got color changes and I htink back  then, they didn´t made it thaaat often but boah.. that darn Anime Golduck xD

I wonder if sometimes it's on accident??? xD and they stuck with it :'3

the blue bulbasaur is really pretty :heart:, but I would guess that they changed that one on purpose to be more distinct from the water-type coloration. /shrugs/.  But I like that the blue bulbasaur was like a lily/aqua plant 'on top of the water' or something, before it got turned to greenish, because that was nice then <333

This makes me wish they still changed colors based on nicknames like they did in the old 64 Stadium games. lD Then they could all be accurate. XD As for favorites, I think I always liked it best when they had stark red hair contrasting their pinkish/orange-ish bodies.

Yes, that was so cool! And it was the reason why I started to give nicknames to them xD

I like the red one. But I am not really bothered by this, I'm sure a lot of different people color the cards and anime, and since they have so much to do, don't spend the time to be sure the color pallets equal up.

All the colors of the Vulpix! 

Also, I'm pretty much certain that every plush version of Vulpix is the orange version with reddish/pinkish hair/tails ;3 

I love every Vulpix though.

I am fairly certain it's not an official plush, but I could be wrong.

not all :D www.amazon.de/Pokemon-Serie-Vu…
I wish it was possible in the games to get different colored ones without calling them shiny =A= it would be more natural

And that would be cool. Vulpix from different places have different colors.....but they probably won't do that considering they don't even follow pokedex written things in the games, like Vulpix being born with a single white tail, or Arbok and it's different hood patterns(Which they kept for a while but then gave up on)

yes xD" But that won´t lower the freedom of an artist 8D means, we can create Vulpix OCs in all colors for own projects anyway.
