Day 86: Grass/Electric
Thalampere are large, plant Pokémon common along shorelines, who prey on smaller water Pokémon. At night, they dip their long tendrils into the water, using the glow of their shock glands to lure in and incapacitate unsuspecting Water-types. If a Thalampere attracts the attention of an opponent it can’t handle, it uses the cover of darkness and the flexibility of its tendrils to make itself appear larger before making its escape.
During the day, Thalampere rest in the sunlight, converting the heat energy into electric power to ensure it can glow brightly all night long.
Thalampere are inspired by kelp and bio-luminescent organisms!
Day 85: Poison/Electric
Epidemite -> Pestiluma
These Pokémon are primarily known for their bizarre feeding habits, and for their history alongside the progression of medical science in the Pokémon world.
When young, Epidemite will search around for targets to infect with the virulent, but slow to incubate virus that it stores in the gland on the back of its head. Epidemite may induce temporary paralysis with some small electrical shocks if necessary, but will otherwise avoid causing the victim harm, as it needs them in good condition for this process to work.
For years, the virus will simply sit, inactive, until it reproduces to the degree that it can begin spreading to other hosts. It is then that the symptoms will start appearing. Fever and chills are common, but the exact specifics are unique to each Epidemite. By then, the Epidemite will have evolved into a Pestiluma, who may track down the victims by the unique electromagnetic resonance that the virus produces and extract it, thereby deriving sustenance, and curing the disease in the process.
In centuries past, it was not actually known that these Pokémon were related, and so people would willingly allow Pestiluma to wander their towns to cure disease, not realizing that they were in fact the cause of the virus they were curing. As soon as the connection was made, however, the Pokémon were promptly exiled, which corresponded with an increase in cleanliness and lower mortality rates. Recently however, there has been an increase in the popularity of this Pokémon, as they can now be reengineered to produce antiviral medications instead of just disease.
Epidemite and Pestiluma are based upon fleas and plague doctors.
Can you please draw Utopeon again alone. He is a awesome I'm loving him. I l Just love the world Utopia.
Sorry dude, but we gotta move on to new things and new ideas.
If you or anyone else wants to try their hand at drawing him though, by all means, go for it!
Hi, I really enjoy your blog and fakemons. Especially ones with multiple evolutionary stages. Anyway, I'm not sure when and where I heard it, but you guys only create fakemons with type combinations that haven't been created in the actually game yet, right. For example, I wouldn't expect a water/grass fakemon from your blog. Thanks. :)
And that is actually the whole reason we’re doing this blog! Says so right in the about page.
Meteorion's head looks suspiciously like Kyurem's... And Kyurem supposedly arrived on a giant meteor... And they're both Ice types... Coincidence? I think not.
Yes it was, actually. I based Meteorion’s head off of a star. (Think of how it would look from a front view.) The color scheme is really just a natural consequence of its typing.
I just realized Meteorion's hands are Austeroid. I feel stupid.
Don’t feel stupid. I’m happy that you noticed!
Hey! I found your blog recently and damn~ you got great stuffs! I have an idea of a fakemon but i cant draw is it possible i can request it from you?
Hey, thanks for the compliment!
I’m sorry though, we don’t take requests. Wekh and I already have a lot on our plate as it is.
Day 84: Normal/Ground
Shalbon live in wide-open deserts with little variation in terrain or cover from the sun. Their thick fur protects them from harsh sandstorms and lets them blend in with the color of the sand.
When they rest they pull all their legs in under their bodies, making it almost impossible for attacking Pokémon to determine which direction they face. Shalbon use this to their advantage, surprising would-be opponents with extremely fast and powerful kicks from their sturdy legs.
Day 83: Rock/Ice
Austeroid -> Meteorion
Austeroid arrive periodically from the depths of space, and at present seem to be the strongest evidence that Pokémon are extraterrestrial on origin. Composed mostly of a delicate silica and ice matrix, tiny bits of this Pokémon gradually break off as it flies through the void, forming its brilliant tail, and necessitating that it periodically stop at planets and large asteroids to replenish itself. Though they will occasionally fly down near the surface to explore, Austeroid are usually content to orbit the upper atmosphere, where they feed on stray bits of water until they again reach full size. However, if threatened, they can rocket themselves at a target with alarming speed.
Should a group of Austeroid stay too long in the atmosphere, their excess mass will eventually cause them to merge together, triggering the evolution into Meteorion. Bolder then their smaller brethren, Meteorion are more likely to enter the lower atmosphere, and some may even choose to stay on earth for years or even decades on end, learning about the planet and its inhabitants. However, regardless of any friends they may make, Meteorion view their time on a planet as temporary, and by activating opposing magnetic poles in its many moving parts, they may create a sort of natural warp drive, rocketing past the sky and into parts unknown.
Eh, what the heck, I’m going to go all-out with the abilities on this one. Austeroid and Meteorion’s ability is Speed Boost, and their hidden ability is Technician.
These guys were inspired by comets, and on the 1957 science fiction novel, The Black Cloud.
Why do you have so many insect-based Pokémon that aren't Bug-type? Kinda like Vibrava I guess?
Well, insects are the largest and most diverse group of animals on earth. But if all the Pokémon based on them were Bug Type, that would be a little samey, no?
Anyways, there are actually a pretty decent number of Pokémon based upon arthropods that aren’t Bug Type. Other than the Trapinch line, you have Krabby, Kingler, Kabuto, Kabutops, Gligar, Gliscor, Corphish, Crawdaunt, and Drapion. Of those, Gligar and Gliscor are based off of insects. (Scorpionflies, specifically.)
There are also a handful of Pokémon that are Bug Type that aren’t based on arthropods, (Shuckle, Anorith, Armaldo, Shelmet, and Accelgor,) but that’s neither here nor there.
