Reptilian Pokemon by DragonlordRynn Reptilian Pokemon by DragonlordRynn
“Pokemon can be classified by following criteria: A low reproduction rate (with the offspring being in most cases of its mother’s species), supernatural abilities like extended longevity (in some cases, as seen in the so-called ‘Legendary Pokemon’, it exceeds several thousand years), the ability to control different elements, large-sized bodies, a sudden second and third mutation/maturity stage, some of which are triggered by the radiation of different ores (and a newly-discovered fourth stage, the ‘Mega-Evolution’ which is triggered by ‘Mega Stones’), and near-human/superhuman intellect, even in animals like arthropods. It was generally believed that Pokemon where a whole different act of Creation, or even extraterrestrial life-forms.

In 1850 however, when a female West-Highland Terrier gave birth to a litter of Lillipups, people began to realize that Pokemon did come, in fact, from normal animals. This caused several theories to spring up until in 1976 the young Pokemon Professor Samuel Oak discovered a virus in one of his samples. First, he believed it to be a contamination, but then curiosity got the better of him. He noted a section in the virus’ DNA he found oddly familiar. In a sample of his Charizard’s DNA, he recognized the exact same section of viral DNA. This lead to a breakthrough in Pokemon research, explaining exactly where Pokemon came from: The ‘Pokerus’ Virus affects the reproductive organs, slipping its genetic information into its hosts gametes and changing the offspring to mutate into Pokemon.”



So many Tortoises... soooo many...

The good thing about them is they are compact and easy to fit on the paper. The bad thing... they are hard to draw.

Here they are:
Turtwig, Grotle, Torterra, Squirtle, Wartortle, Blastoise, Mega Blastoise, Golem, Torkoal, Avalugg, Tirtouga, Corracosta, Feraligatr, Totodile, Krookodile, Sandile, Helioptile, Heliolisk, Kecleon, Scraggy, Scraffy, Snivy, Servine, Serperior, Ekans, Arbok, Seviper, Onix, Steelix, Zygarde.

Enjoy.

EDIT 03.08.14: Removed Tyranitar, Larvitar and Mega Tyranitar. They have been added to 'Dinosaurs'
EDIT 04.01.15: Added Mega Steelix, Krokorok and Croconaw.

PLEASE NOTE: This is how I see the Pokemon. It is fine to be of different opinion, but please tolerate mine.

It is going to be a dragon, even though it doesn't fullfill the criteria of having six or more limbs

I'm really curious to see how you do dragons, since you've been basing these drawings on real animals, and there are no real life examples of six-limb vertebrates.

Looking at your take on Tyranitar I'm reminded of those early 50s B-movies where their "Prehistoric Monster" was just an iguana with a dorsal fin and horns glued to it.
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2014
It was either that or an ankylosaur.
Also: Pokémon do look like the monsters from the 50s movies.

May I ask which category you would put Treecko into? ...since I haven't seen him appear yet.

It looks like one.
I mean, Haxorus and Garchomp definitely aren't dinosaurs and Dragonite is no water-type. So why can't the dragon-like lizard become an actual dragon?

But it looks more like a Sea Slug. So it's in the Invertebrate Section.

Dunscparce is much too short to be a snake.

:icondarkcakedunsparce:
DarkCakeDunsparce Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
Actually, Dunsparce is based on the Tsuchinoko, a Japanese cryptid. It's basically Japan's Bigfoot. The Tsuchinoko- Or Bachi Hebi in some regions- is a snake with a very fat body, thin tail, and is known for digging and biting its tail to roll like a wheel. Dunsparce learns Rollout, and Dig, and is KNOWN for its digging. They're also extremely rare, having a 1% encounter rate in Dark Cave, which goes with Tsuchinoko's cryptid status. Let me give you an image of a Tsuchinoko. www.pinktentacle.com/images/ts…

It looks like some sort of Lizard. A bloated version of our Slow-Worm.

But I'll stick with my Slug Thesis. Slugs can burrow, they can have funny frills along their bodies and come in colorful variations. Dunsparce just doesn't scream 'Snake' to me. And the Tsuchi-thesis I know.
