You got it. Ngl, I was hoping for Sinnoh. Now I'm trying to think of regional evolution to replace Decidueye, Incineroar and Primarina

Edit: Uthingo is based on South Africa, Madagascar, Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, and Morocco all overlapping with each other for some reason. I'm trying to think of good designs that draw from either ancient Egyptian and/or Yoruba gods.

Decided to to just go with making Uthingolese forms for Kanto's starters.
But first. A new Type has been discovered in Uthingo!
The Creature Type! This type covers Pokemon designs that are animal-based but don't fit under any pre-existing types.
Some older, fully-evolved Pokemon that are Creature-type include Druddigon (Dragon/Creature) Bouffalant (Normal/Creature), Luxray (Electric/Creature), Copperajah (Steel/Creature) Beheeyem (Psychic/Creature) Kantonian Dodrio (Creature/Flying), Kyogre (Water/Creature), Xerneas (Fairy/Creature) Raikou/Entei/Suicune (all have Creature as a secondary type) Golduck (Water/Creature), Kantonian Sandslash (Ground/Creature) Beartic (Ice/Creature)
Creature-type Pokemon are immune to Fairy-type moves. They are weak to Dragon (now immune to Creature-type moves), Steel, Ghost, and Electric. They resist Flying, Fighting, Bug and Water. Poison resists Creature while still doing normal damage. Creature-type moves hit Fairy, Bug, and Psychic super-effectively.


Uthingolese Kanto Starters!
Bulbasaur line is based on Venus Fly Traps and goliath frogs (Grass/Creature)
Charmander line is based on Monitor Lizards (Fire/Ghost)
Squirtle line is based on sea turtles and pirates (Water/Steel)

omg, i've been trying to do this as well, but alas, i need a Wii U i think. Can it be done with a 3DS or even a phone?
Yeah, there's an Android app to write amiibo data to an NFC tag, if your phone supports NFC! It will require a bit of fiddling to get working but it's absolutely do-able. Here's the link: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-tagmo-tool-for-creating-editing-amiibos.431670/
Can you please update this link because whenever I click on it some time links open well and some time I got 404 error.

Hmm, that's funny! I can't say I know what's wrong - the link seems to be working for me, I don't see a 404 error. It's not even redirecting anywhere.

A slightly better (stylized) map. The region is pretty much all centered around this big lake in the middle, known in real life as Lake Erie

Uthingo is being reworked into a new region called Ajomu, based on Tanzania and Kenya. Ajomu gets its name from a Swahili word for Unity, spelt backwards, though....
Starter silhouettes are below. Try to guess what they are!Ajomu Starter Silhouettes.png

Some more Ajomuan Pokemon and variants have been discovered!

Ajomuan Pidgey and Ajomuan Pidgeotto are both Flying/Fighting type based on the vulturine guineafowl, eventually evolving into Ajomuan Pidgeot, who is based on a Marital Eagle. Ajomuan Pidgeot has very powerful talons, more so than its Kantonian counterpart.

Pictoggo is a new gimmick Pokemon that is a Dark-type based on the African Wild Dog. It is the only Pokemon in Ajomu that can learn Sketch, but unlike Smeargle, it can use TMs and TRs.

Ajomuan Dunsparce is a sleek Rock-type based on the African rock python. It evolves into Dunspython, who is a long boi.

The fossils in Ajomu are a little like the Galarian fossils. You start out with reviving a paleontologically inaccurate specimen with one fossil, and make it hold the same fossil and level it up at lv 42 to evolve them into something more realistic to modern science.

Spinotyke is a Dragon-type Spinosaurus that evolves into Spinopex, who is Dragon/Water.

Dinoguan is a Fighting-type Iguanodon that evolves into Guanathumb, who is Fighting/Ground.

I'm making a new fakemon region. I've done all I could with Ajomu. Aroso will be a region based on West Africa. Aroso is the Yoruba word for legend.
