It might just be me, but Bountail has a build, similar to that of a Griffon. Nice sprites, though :D

@ Torronto: actually, one of the fossil pokes is going to be a griffin (oops spoilers) :B Bountail is just a mysterious mammal-thing.

Continuing with the same based-off-nothing-really theme, here's the early route bird which happens to be a two-stager, because we're different (actually we just never came up with a middle stage haha).

Rashee - HOPPING POKÉMON
normal/flying

Exbinar - VAIN BIRD POKÉMON
normal/flying

the idea here is that Rashee has a hard time flying because its wings are too small but it still tries really hard. When it evolves, it gets more fly-able wings but also fancy tailfeathers, so it gets lazy and just sits around showing off.
ignore the fact that the feathers kinda ended up looking like leaves fuck this

EDIT: moar


Ocuseed - SEED POKÉMON
grass

Sprocular - SEEING SPROUT POKÉMON
grass/psychic

Flocular - FLOWER EYE POKÉMON
grass/psychic

Default Re: I put the "x" in pixel

I'll just double-post because I have two new lines I sprited today O:

First one is one of my all-time favourites, in names, idea and design (ALL CREDIT FOR THE DESIGN GOES TO MY SISTER SHE IS A GENIUS):


Karoto - CHALK POKÉMON
ground

Judom - CHALK POKÉMON
ground/fighting
(probably gonna edit the pose a bit very soon so no need to crit it)
done, now with less falling-on-my-face action

Now before you go WHY ISNT IT A GRASS TYPE, here's some dex info for you:
Karoto's body is mostly composed of chalk so it would collapse if it wasn't for the flower that it plants on its head. The roots of the flower keep its body together and allow it to move around without crumbling. The flower itself doesn't give the pokemon any special powers, it's merely a skeleton of sorts.
When it evolves, the roots have grown so so strong they allow the newly-evolved Judom to perform all kinds of kicks and punches. Judom is very flexible and bouncy because of the roots supporting it.


Aaaaaand here's the second one:


Sneyel - HYPNOTIC SLUG POKÉMON
psychic/poison

Polyel - HYPNOTIC POKÉMON
psychic/poison

fairly trippy and why yes it is a second fakemon line based around EYES
EYES ARE COOL OKAY idek why we have all these eyemons

(both of these designs are originally pre-third gen, so OLD; I merely messed with the coloration of Polyel but it's basically the same)

EDIT: you're probably asking, 'where is the trippy you asshole?'
it's right here

might need some other effects too but im too lazy atm

Give the leaf bird a different coloration, srsly.

I... really don't like the slug. It's ugly but not Maggyugly. Maybe make the eyes more interesting? Atm they look a bit deformed.

Ocuseed is awesome, as is the chalk guys.

I don't know why but I just love Flocular ;~; It's easily my favourite Fakemon that I've seen. I keep thinking its name is Florocular though, heh.

And I think Polyel looks a bit weird because its eyes have no shading?

but pleeeeaase guys/girls don't quote my hugeass posts (or at least omit the images or something) it makes everything cluttery and awful ;_;

@ Squorn: Almost right! You gotta have both/neither of the meteor/comet pokemons in your party and it'll be in the balanced forme O:
If you only have Cometrice, it'll be in the psychic-type forme and only Metrailit equals the ghost-type one.
Whether the other pokemons are in their dormant/active formes doesn't matter.

Whoo! I can guess fairly accuractely with an obvious thing!

So what's the significance of the Dormant and Active formes?

I can tell what you're referring to without the quotes okay :C
can y'all please edit your posts to remove the quotes completely or something, it's hard to read the replies like this


@ Squorn: it's mostly plot-related stuff (we have a plot thought out even though this isn't gonna be a game, derp), plus the Dormant formes have Rock Head, and the signature move of the duo (Crash Land) causes heavy recoil (plus its type is determined by the users' first type, i.e. dormant formes get rock and ground and active formes fire and ice).
