Dinosaur Pokemon by DragonlordRynn Dinosaur 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.”

Apparently the Pokérus Virus had been around much longer than anyone thought. The existance of Dinosaur Pokémon
proves this, as those infected with the Pokerus were better adapted at surviving whatever exterminated the real Dinosaurs. That's why Dinosaur Pokémon still exist today, while Dinosaurs themselves don't.

Again, you have to bow low to :iconarvalis:, because that guy is my God of realism Pokemon now.

December 5th, 2016: Updated the main file with newer Art, they include now:
Aerodactyl, Mega Aerodactyl, Drampa, Lapras, Aron, Lairon, Aggron, Mega Aggron, Shieldon, Bastiodon, Cranidos, Ramparados, Magby, Magmar, Magmortar, Breloom, Palkia, Larvitar, Pupitar, Tyranitar, Mega Tyranitar, Turtwig, Grottle, Torterra, Axew, Fraxure, Haxorus, Goodra, Chikorita, Bayleef, Meganium, Tropius, Amaura, Aurorus, Dialga, Jangmo-o, Hakomo-o, Kommo-o, Groudon, Primal Groudon, Gibble, Gabite, Garchomp, Mega Garchomp, Tyrunt, Tyrantrum, Treecko, Grovyle, Sceptile, Mega Sceptile, Scyther, Archen, Archeops, White Kyurem, Reshiram

Notes:
-While not exactly 'Dinosaurs', Aerodactyl, Lapras and Drampa are saurian enough to end here.
-I want to thank Skyrim and its Screenshots for the base of Mega Aerodactyl.
-Did you notice? Dinosaurs have the highest amount of Mega Pokémon compared to the total Pokémon.
-Magmar and Breloom are the descendants to Ramparados, while Aggron is the descendant of Bastiodon.
-Breloom eggs look very similar to Shroomish clusters, and Breloom makes its nest near those fungi.


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

If Scyther's a dino, why Scizor an actual praying mantis?
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2017
Because they aren't related in any way. Scizor can sometimes be seen hanging around Scyther packs, because they are clever enough to hunt alongside with them.

I've heard somewhere that Reshiram has design elements of raptors, so good choice including it with these other dinosaur Pokemon.

Well, my Reshiram's more of an Archeopteryx (but it's pretty much the same). Mostly basing on :iconarvalis:'s design.

I think Palkia should be a dragon because he has wings and four legs so he could be a dragon just like Giratina
Personally I see tyranitar more like an allosaurus like dinosaur because he's based on a theropod dinosaur in the series
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2017
Yeah, well I drew Palkia as a dinosaur. Without wings- because unlike Giratina, I don't really see much 'wing' on Palkia's shoulders. It's more like a stiff appendage.

And I could have made Tyranitar a theropod, but then I realized how small its head is compared to its body, plus it doesn't have very impressive claws and is pretty heavy-set. So I made it a stegosaurus.
Tyranitar being a herbivor does not mean its harmless, though. Most of the big guys would rather get the fuck out than mess with this bad boy.

Just a question, are you going to make the new forms of Solgaleo and Lunala form Pokémon ultrasun and ultramoon?

What kind of dinosaurs are Groudon and Garchomp?
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2017
Groudon is part Megalosaurus- but honestly I just went kinda 'draw something with two legs and large jaws' on him.
Garchomp is actually a Carnotaurus.

Maybe Groudon is a Pokerus-infected Godzillasaur? (godzilla.wikia.com/wiki/Godzil…)

No. He's an infected Megalosaurus, or something of the kind.

What's the relationship between goomy, sligoo, and goodra?
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2016
Goomy and Sligoo look quite similar to Goodra from the coloration, and they live in the same enviroment. But that's it.

Someone was drunk when they claimed that Sligoo grows into a dinosaur.

Wait... I've just noticed that Drampa and Lapras look similar... Is there a relationship between the two?
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2016
They're both related to each other, as they both are descendants of the Elasmosaur. However, while Lapras stayed in the sea and developed defensive mechanisms like living in schools and growing a shell, Drampa moved to live in mangroove swamps and other swamps, hence its tattered appearance.

I know and I did mention it in the Author's comments. But let's be honest- they are much too saurian to end in the 'Reptiles' Category, aren't they?

That description sounds like the premise of a Science Fiction movie, a virus that slips itself into hosts and mutates them into superhumans (Well Superanimals)

Also is that Drampa trying to score with that Lapras?
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2016
I know, but it does make sense, if you think of it. And logic dictates that this was how cells evolved anyways: one bacteria ate another, but didn't digest it. Instead, it learnt how to generate energy via oxygen through mitochondria. Now all animal and plant cells have mitochondria.

I think Drampa is asking for the way to the nearest swamp. Because Drampa usually doesn't live in the high sea like Lapras does.

Welp....can't argue against that, may wanna watch out for overreligious people that believe everything was by GOD and Mountain Dew is the best soda but yeah, imagine a realistic Pokemon movie....probably be terrible like every other movie based off super popular anime series but still be fun to watch I guess...

XD, really bummed that in the games, you find Drampa in the same place as Turtonator,basically in scrubland, I would think Drampa would live in caves and stuff

Believe it or not, they are basing on Therizinosaurus, combined with large amounts of Ankylosaurus.
