People were asking why Tarim keeps calling Candy "Piggy". Thing is I was actually working on a picture explaining just that, but it kind of got put on hold. So here's the summary:

Tarim was never too keen on new members joining the team and after Cinder and himself, Candy was the next to join the crew. He quickly got down to the business of pestering her, and it didn't take long for him to discover her issues with her low self-esteem. Candy was pink, round and usually moved around on all fours, so the Meowth started calling her "Piggy". Naturally this ticked her off, so that just made her more grouchy than she already was. They had a lot of scraps together.

These fights are now a thing of the past, as the two first grudgingly came to accept each other and now have even developed a friendship of sorts. In fact, they have begun teaching each other some of their own moves, though Candy regrets having taught Tarim how to use Hypnosis. He tends to abuse it. A lot. A lot. At any rate, the old nickname he gave her, "Piggy" stuck, though he now only uses it to tease her a little.

Anyway, Candy's Drowzee form, as seen here, is quite small. She was still rather young when she was caught by Sandy. She was able to walk on both her hind legs and on all fours, preferring the latter when outside of combat (shoulder blades are collapsible), and she had more of less opposable thumbs on her front limbs. Her eyes had the classic sleep wrinkles most Drowzee have, because she hadn't started using meditation yet to simulate REM sleep cycles.

Actually, that's one scary Drowzee, now that I think about it...
