So what with the recent Deinocheirus fossil discovery, (A dinosaur previously only known from an enormous pair of arms,) I decided to do the sensible thing and make a pokémon.
I decided to name these guys Carpalethe and Kirorpse. They’re Rock/Ghost type, and are revived from the Forearm Fossil.
Carpalethe -> Kirorpse (Revived from the Forearm Fossil)
I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for months now, and with the recent discovery of a more complete Deinocheirus skeleton, it seemed as like as good a time as any to finally draw them out.
When Carpalethe’s large fossilized armbone was first discovered it was initially thought to be the remains of a massive reptilian Pokémon, possibly a dragon type. However, with the advancement of Pokémon revival technology it was surprisingly discovered that the arms were just about the only physical structure that they have at all.
Revived Kirorpses seem to gravitate toward fossil dig-sites, though it is presently unknown exactly how they are able to locate their fallen brethren without any prior knowledge of the area. It is speculated that they serve as guardians, protecting the spirits of Pokémon who had previously died in mass extinction events.
Their ability is Tough Claws, and their hidden ability is Cursed Body.

Hey guys, I’m going to be taking commissions! If anyone requests anything fakemon-related, I’ll post it up over here as well!
Diatomik -> Mega Diatomik
Thought I would try drawing one of them newfangle Mega Pokémon.
Upon exposure to a rare chemical known as Diatomite, Diatomik will mega-evolve, restructuring its body into a series of icy prisms, and granting it two additional radiant cores. With a ring of four eyes surrounding its body, and a mouth at each end, each capable of firing immense blasts of heat and light, Mega Diatomik is thoroughly protected on all sides, thereby eliminating its prior state’s greatest weakness.
Mega Diatomik’s ability is Flash Fire.
Now that you've gone through the list twice, what do you think was the hardest type combination to come up with a Pokemon for(including the Eevees)? What is your favourite Pokemon you've designed, or the one you think is best at what it's trying to do?
Adam: Oo, that is a good question, let’s see… The hardest to come up with was probably my Normal/Ground line, Contrict and Gordienne. The ground type has always been sort of awkwardly defined, (It clearly doesn’t just refer to subterranean Pokémon, so exactly what it is that unifies the type is hard to say,) and on top of that, it can likewise be hard to define exactly what it is that differentiates a part normal type Pokémon from a single type Pokémon with without the normal.
It’s been a while since I was last asked this question, but i think my overall favorite is still Sniksnak, Jitterwock and Vorprowl, my Bug/Psychic line. I think this was when I really started to hit my stride with the art over here, plus I still have a thing for big, glowy eyespots.
As for your last question, I am going to go with my Bug/Normal line, Wolpeller, Mantiskor and Kimerantis. Like I said before, Normal is a difficult type to work out as part of a duel type combo, so when I got to what I felt was a fairly unimposing type combination that nobody really cares about, I wanted to defy expectations by coming up with something big and imposing. I’m pretty sure I succeeded?
Wekhter: Ack, hard questions! I think one of the combos I struggled with the longest was Rhodombra, my Psychic/Dark. I think those two types are rather at odds with each other, and Dark is a pretty vague type to begin with, so I struggled a lot trying to come up with any sort of concrete idea. I think it turned out a lot better than some of the Pokémon I had ideas for immediately, though. Sometimes having to really work to think of something works out, I guess!
I think my overall favorite is… possibly Moulteon, my Bug Eeveelution. I know it was a while ago but that was a design that I felt (and still feel) is an elegant solution to combining insect characteristics with a mammal like Eevee. It just feels right to me.
As for my most “successful” I think I might go with Tartevry, my Grass/Fire. I really wanted to capture the feel of some of the cute legendaries that make an appearance each generation, and I do think I succeeded in making Tartevry look cute but still have an air of… “guardian” about him.
How big is that plant guy? I get the feeling he's not groudon/kyogre big, but still pretty big.
Assuming you’re talking about Eleusieant… Er, nope, he really is Groudon/Kyogre big! I designed him to be about 10’ tall so that he’s as big around as an ancient tree. Go figure!
