Day 79: Ice/Poison
Wendigit -> Ithaclaw
Wendigit live underneath snowbanks and in frozen lakes. Reaching their hand through the snow or ice, so that it is the only visible part of their body, they instinctively try to grab at any object that moves within their path. The venom in Wendigit’s poison-tipped claws spreads quickly on contact, and leaves the target in a paralytic state that resembles frostbite. In centuries past, people thought that Wendigits were actually the hands of corpses, reaching through the ice to infect others with their ghostly chill, though now it is known that they are simply mortal Pokémon.
Ithaclaw are even more dangerous then their unevolved brethren, with their whole bodies having developed to grabbing and holding prey. A single scratch from the “mouths” on their fingerlike limbs can poison a target in seconds, leaving them like an eerie, living statue. Ithaclaw will sometimes leave their frozen victims around their territory, as to lure in more prey.
These Pokémon were designed thematically around the idea of frostbite, and were based around wendigos, Jack Frost, and stories of ghostly hands reaching out of swamps. Their ability is Poison Touch, with possibly Iron Fist as a DW ability.

    It seems appropriate that the creature themed after frostbite has a name very reminiscent of my home town.
