The maneki neko is supposed to bring luck and good fortune to its owner. I have always had a fascination with the beckoning cats of Asian culture and I decided to cross them with a few of my favorite Anime cats. Now admittedly Pokemon was a game before it was an Anime but I loved watching the cartoons as a child and Mew has always been my favorite Anime feline.
Arcanine is a fiercely brave and loyal Pokémon. It is capable of running 6,200 miles in 24 hours with a speed and grace reminiscent of flight. Arcanine has long been admired for its beauty and speed, and anyone who hears its bark will grovel before it. The source of its power is a flame blazing wildly inside its body. In the anime, it was shown that it stashes food in its mane and carries it to its nest for its young. Arcanine lives in active volcanoes and on prairies.
