    ya that would probably work, but it's still kinda of hard to describe how the teddiursa actually changes. 'cus you don't normally find half teddiursa,half ursaring hybrids.

    Yeah thats true. But im sure the reader will generally accept that it takes a while for the pokemon to grow and will not look "complete" and be a "hybrid" for a short period. And it makes sense.

    Apologies for slowness. So busy. Also, please reserve Sentret and Furret for me.

    Here's Mew's article!

    The Guyana Mew (Felis occulto)

    Quick Summary

    Order: Carnivora
    Family: Felidae
    Length: Head and body, 16 in. Tail, 18-19 in.
    Weight: 6-9 lbs.
    Sexual Maturity: Exact time unknown, estimated at 1-2 years
    Average Incubation: Exact time unknown, estimated to be about 7-9 months
    No. of Young: 1-2, almost always one
    Habit: Dinural
    Diet: Rodents, eggs, small birds; occasionally berries
    Lifespan: Unknown. Evidence suggests it can live for up to forty years in the wild.

    The Guyana mew is a small and elusive South American pokémon about whom much is still shrouded in mystery. While an official answer about their range is unknown, sightings have been reported as far north as Panama and as far south as Uruguay. Sightings have also been reported in Asia, specifically the Kanto area – how they got there is unknown to science. Their ears are small – only about half an inch in height – slightly pointed, and held in a constantly upright position. Their tails, longer than their entire bodies, end in a thick tuft of long fur, which they drag across the ground to leave a scent trail for their kittens. The hindpaws are much larger than the forepaws, which gives the animal a slightly loping gait when it travels along the ground. Their claws are small and sharp, but not curved; useful for hunting or berry-gathering but leaving its species the only felid unable to climb trees. Fur color varies from area to area – those in the upper areas of their known range are a very rich reddish pink all over, with little variation in shades. Those in the lower regions, as well as the Asian individuals, tend to be a much paler, almost whiteish pink, which darkens to a rich magenta on the hindpaws, ears, and tail tuft. On most specimens, their fur is very short and fine, laying so close to the body that until they could be touched, some scientists thought they were hairless. However, those seen in the Andes Mountains and those spotted in Asia have longer coats, to deal with the colder weather.

    Western Discovery

    Although colonization by Europeans began in South America in the fifteenth century, the mew, although known to the native peoples for centuries, was not discovered by Westerners until the nineteenth century, as it was long dismissed as a purely mythical creature. In the mid-19th century, two brothers, Richard and Robert Schomburgk, traveled through Guyana; mainly interested in defining the boundary between Guyana and Brazil for the purpose of mapmaking, but also collecting specimens for the Royal Museum and Botanical Gardens of Berlin (Germany). While traveling through the Iwokrama Forest, a million-acre rainforest in central Guyana, the brothers discovered both the body of a mew (which was examined and dissected, but not, to the chagrin of modern scientists, preserved) and, later, a live specimen. It is their records and (primitive) photographs of observation of the live specimen, and the Royal Museum’s study of the dead specimen, that provides most of the only firsthand information on the pokémon. The species was also later discovered, identical to its modern state, in the fossil record of the Pleistocene Epoch.

    Habits

    Admittedly, little is known about the Guyana mew’s habits, due to its elusive, mysterious nature. Most are known to live deep in rainforests, although an occasional long-furred specimen has been reported above the snow line on various Andes peaks. Although they cannot climb trees, the Schomburgk brothers, in their report on the species prepared for the Royal Museum, describe the animals as sleeping in leafy nests in trees. The creature was described as getting to their nests by first leaping up with their massive hind legs, and then floating upwards towards it. This mid-air hovering, typical of self-levitation observed in various psychic type pokémon, allowed the Schomburgk brothers to correctly guess its type, which was later confirmed by Royal Museum analysis of the dead specimen.

    The nests were described as being spherical in shape and made of leaves and sticks, almost like larger versions of the dreys or bolus nests of the arboreal sciurids. Later observations of abandoned mew nests revealed that the interiors are lined with soft plant matter on the bottom, with a small space reserved for food. Observing the remains left in these spots revealed the mew’s diet, which will be discussed later.

    Stories of mews using a huge variety of attacks, of any element, and therefore being the ancestor or leader of all the creatures of the rainforest were common among people in Guyana and elsewhere. While the latter part is obvious mythic hyperbole, the former part, while possible, was dismissed by most Westerners as mere myth, or, at least, massive exaggeration. Some psychic types are known to use attacks of a few other elements by shaping energy around them into simulations of said attacks, but all of them was thought to be impossible - until analysis of the mew brain at the Royal Museum confirmed it was able to do this. “Such an incredibly adaptable mind also hints to great power. We feel wholly comfortable declaring this species wholly compatible with other pokémon known as “Legendary” – powerful, intelligent, rare, and remarkable.”

    Food and Feeding

    Like all felids, mew are carnivores. This is known from the Royal Museum’s observations of its teeth and jaw, and also from looking at abandoned mew nests, which, along with the occasional berry pits, are made up mostly of eggshells and bones from small birds and rodents. Eggs seem to be their most common food, based on the sheer number of eggshells both in their nests and scattered around them.

    Only those living in the Andes are known to hoard berries for winter, along with nuts, not usually part of their diet, for added protein.

    Breeding

    Their breeding habits are for the most part, shrouded in mystery. Their breeding rituals have never been observed, nor have their eggs. Mothers with young have been spotted a few times, once by scientists, so a small amount about how they are raised is known. As the mew typically travels in the air, floating, their long tails serve the useful purpose of dangling along the ground, creating a scent trail for the kitten (only rarely has more than one kitten been reported), who is too young to join its mother in the air, to follow. Males have never been observed caring for the young, seeming to indicate they do not form any recognizable pair bonds. It is estimated from their very low populations and rarity that the mew takes a long time to reach sexual maturity for a creature of its size – the most popular estimate is two years.

    I haven't done one of these in a while.

    Green Barked Meganium (Brachionium Meganium)
    Height: 5'11'' Weight: 221.6 lbs
    Lifespan: 90-110 years

    The meganium is one of the few remaining speices of a group known as the phytasaurs, a group of reptiles that also share characteristics of plants. This highly successful group was once the dominant spieces in the pokémon world for millions of years, but this group has been mostly wiped out due to climate change and new speices of pokémon to compete with. Other spieces of living phytasaurs include venusaur, sceptile, dotaitos and tropius.

    Meganium are found in the dense conifer forests of Jotho. Herds of them were once a common site in these parts, but this is now just a distant memory since the wild Green Barked Meganium is cirtically endangered. Most Meganium are captive bred and are often given to new trainers as part of the tradition of starting the pokémon journey. Meganium, or rather, chikorita are the grass starters of choice in Jotho.

    Chikorita are small light green pokémon that move about on four legs. Due to their cute appearence, Most chikorita are often mistaken for being female, when in fact, most chikorita are in fact, male. Why this is so remains a mystery to pokémon scientists.

    The most famous feature of the humble chikorita is it's leaf. This leaf is smooth and the top is somewhat waxy. It is also where it's scent gland is located. The scent that wafts from this gland is quite a pleasent smell that is used to calm aggression. Scientists have theorized that the scent is used to throw predatory pokémon off guard, or even strengthen the parental ties between baby chikorita and their fully evolved parents. It also appears that the scent of this pokémon effects it's own mood and disposition, as most Chikorita appear to be relaxed and content with life.

    The leaf has other uses aside from producing aromas. The pokémon is able to detect humidity and temperature in the atmosphere with it. This is very vital because like other phytasaur pokémon, Chikorita uses photosythesis much like plants to get nutrients. It photosythesizes through their leaves as well. Chikorita are also herbavorious by nature. Their main diet includes leaves and fruit.

    Another feature that Chikorita possess are small buds around it's neck that form what looks like a necklace. The "bud necklace" necklace on most chikorita appear to be vestigal, but some individuals are able to extend these buds into vines.

    When chikorita evolve, either through proper training or sexual maturity, they become bayleef. The leaf on top of bayleef's head appears to not be as useful as when it was a chikorita. Instead of being used as a temperature regulator and as a photosythesizer, it is manly used to battle other pokémon. However, while the leaf on Bayleef's head is becoming more and more atrophied, other parts of Bayleef are becoming more and more developed. The ring of buds that were present on chikorita have now grown into tubular leaves. Inside of each of these leaves contains a small shoot that produces a spicy scent, simlair to cinnamon. This scent can make other pokémon more energetic and even heigten the drive for competion. Much like Chikorita, Bayleef's mood is greatly effected by the scent it produces. However, unlike the docile chikorita, bayleef are more active and are willing to battle other pokémon. Many trainers are often surprized that their gentle Chikorita has evolved into a rowdy Bayleef.

    With more training or age though, Bayleef then evolves into the majestic Meganium. The leaf that was present on Chikorita and Bayleef has completely dissappeared, having no need to use photosythesis through that method as it can get all it's nutrients from leaves and fruit. The tubular leaves have now breen replaced with petal-like growths, now Meganum resembles a flower. Most Meganiums have red petals, but there are a few that have blue or purple petals instead. Meganium are often very calm and docile. However, they can take alot of punishment in pokémon battles. The scent these pokémon produce is a calm, slightly bitter scent that often makes those who smell it go into a peaceful state, even if they are often agitated. This has made Meganium a common sight in many hospitals and mental health centers, as the scent they produce is often thearputic for the patients.

    Umm.... I haven't been here for quite sometime. ><; Here's my article on Moltres (finally) The Hounds will be up later on.

    Moltres (Ewigkeit Fushichou)
    Height: 6’ 07” Weight: 132 lbs

    Graced with ignited wings of fire, Moltres has long been one of the greater mysteries of the Pokemon world. This legendary bird can usually be seen on Fire Island, located somewhere near the Orange Islands archipelago. Its also has been confirmed to occasionally reside on the peak of Mt. Ember on Two Island within the Seven Islands. Trainers have also claimed to see it within Victory Road en route to the Indigo Plateau.

    Moltres, being an omnivore, eats a typical diet of berries, plants and other Pokemon. The bird catches the unfortunate prey with its sharp talons, and usually the prey dies instantly when the claws stab right at the heart. Afterwards the meat is roasted with Moltres’ intense flames and eaten. Territorial, this creature shows no mercy towards any who dare intrude upon its sacred grounds, even towards its Articuno and Zapdos compatriots – they prefer a more solitary life. Although usually calm and serene, the bird only comes if there is imbalance between the harmony of Fire, Ice and Lightning. Only one such event had ever occurred.

    True to its name, Moltres do not breed. After living out their lifespan of about seventy or so years, it will combust into ashes, and a new chick will sprout from there. This also happens when they die after receiving a fatal wound or such. The chicks uncannily resemble miniature versions of the Torchic, although without the crown and tail feathers. However, if the chick is killed, then the glorious bird cannot sprout once more, so Moltres usually choose a secure spot where the chick can live and reach their maturity age of about three years before appearing to the world.

    Moltres has always been a spectacular sight to see in the air, next to the mighty Ho-Oh. Many trainers and collectors alike have always tried to see this glorious bird, but it usually remains elusive within the shadows. Scientists have been trying to find out on how Moltres can reproduce its way, but to no avail. What we do know is that Moltres remains to be one of the most amazing creature to grace this earth.

    And there's my first article on the Legends! Hope its accepctable. ><;

    that mew article was really cool,i like the idea of there not just being one mew like in the games,and i hadn't really thought of mew as a carnivore,but you made it sound reasonable.

    that meganium article was really cool too,i thought that pythosaur thing was really cool.

    and although that moltres article was a bit on the short side,it was really cool, too,especially the bit on moltres dieing and a new one coming out of the ashes.

    Beruberuto: (ligurio provolvo) 5’ 7” 308.6 lbs.

    Beruberutoes are large bipedal pokemon that can live up to be about one-hundred fifty years of age. Beruberutoes are a dark pinkish color, although some have strange gold colorations. Beruberutoes are omnivores; their diet consists entirely of insects and fruit. Beruberutoes main method of transportation is to curl up into a ball and rotate and extremely high speed, causing a wheel effect, this is called “Roll Out”. When a Beruberuto is using Roll Out it is extremely dangerous and should be avoided. Beruberuto can sense the magnetism of the earth to tell it in which direction to turn while it is tucked inside a ball, not unlike how a Pidgey uses the earth’s magnetism to go back to the area where it was raised.
    Beruberutoes have long 7 foot tongues which they use to reach the tips of trees to get fruit and to paralyze its insect pokemon prey. Beruberutoes’ saliva is an irritant, allergen and neurotoxin, when Beruberutoes lick something the saliva is absorbed by the skin and then interacts with membrane proteins and ion channels which interferes with the nervous system. Beruberutoes can use their tongue like a Kecleons’ and shoot it at rapid speeds and grab prey in mid-flight. Beruberutoes eats mostly fruits which they grab from tree tops with their long tongues, if they cannot reach to the top of the trees they will ram into the tree with their roll out ability, this will occasionally cause Pinecoes and Forretresses to fall from the tops of trees which Beruberutoes will gladly eat, where they will lick up the fruit that fell on the ground. Beruberutoes will eat insect pokemon like Butterfrees, Beautiflys, Yanmas, Ledians, stray Beedrills, and occasionally Scythers.
    If Beruberutoes are confronted with a predator it will try to roll away or paralyze the predator and roll away. The main threat Beruberutoes face are pack pokemon like Mighteyanas, Nidos, and Arcanines. A Nido-pack will almost certainly guarantee a kill; this is because their tough armor doesn’t absorb Beruberutoes’ saliva and they can stop a Beruberuto in mid roll. Beruberutoes’ best defense mechanism is called “Gyro Ball” while performing this Beruberutoes will harden their skin and roll at even higher speeds than their Roll Out speed. While performing this Beruberutoes are incredibly dangerous and can even plow through trees
    Beruberutoes’ mating season is in early December to late January. During this time male Beruberutoes will compete for the right to mate by rolling into each other at high speeds. This can cause serious injury and possibly even death for the loser of these battles. Once a Beruberuto mates with a female one it will leave the female in search of other mates. When the female is pregnant she will dig a hole and lay her eggs in there, about five to seven eggs, she will stay and guard the eggs until they hatch. Incubation takes about three weeks and she will not eat until the eggs hatch. Once the young hatch out of their eggs they are blind and defenseless. During this stage they are called Lickitungs. It takes about two weeks for Lickitungs to start walking, during these 2 weeks Lickitungs are very helpless and can be eaten if the mother is not watching them. During this stage Lickitungs feed off of their mother’s milk. Once the Lickitungs start walking the mother abandons them, so they have to fend for themselves.
    Lickitungs cannot perform the roll out ability so they have to walk on their stubby legs, Lickitungs’ tails are larger than their older form because the tail is needed for balance. If Lickitungs are confronted with a predator they will curl up into a ball to conceal their soft underbellies. Lickitungs’ diet is almost exactly the same as their adult form, although they don’t prey on Scythers other large insect pokemon.
    Once a Lickitung becomes 3 years of age it starts to gorge itself on anything it can get, during this time Lickitung have even been known to enter cities and rob grocery stores. They won’t stop until they gain about 350 lbs of pure fat. They turn sluggish and slow and they’re tail looks smaller in comparison to its gigantic body, they find a safe place and fall into hibernation. They stay in hibernation for about three months and when they awaken they look much smaller and have lost about 100 lbs of fat, and have become fully adult Beruberutoes. It takes about a few weeks of learning before Beruberuto can finally perfect their Roll Out ability.
    Beruberuto are nomadic creatures and travel around meadows and forests looking for food. Beruberuto are easily frightened by most things and once frightened they will flee. Once confronted though a Beruberuto can put up quite a fight, with its paralyzing tongue and its roll out ability it can be a very difficult battle. Beruberutoes walk in a very interesting matter, it almost seems as they are marching they walk in a tempo sort of and each Beruberuto has their own rhythm.

    Here's Persian's article! (That was quick!) Along with Sentret/Furret, please also reserve Smeargle for me

    Also, note I went back and edited the mew article, mainly to eliminate the multiple spelling errors *blushes*

    The Eastern Persian (Puma regius)

    Quick Summary

    Order: Carnivora
    Family: Felidae
    Length: Head and body, 36-40 in. Tail, 18-19 in.
    Weight: 65-70 lbs.
    Sexual Maturity: 8-9 months
    Mating: August-October
    Average Incubation: 60-70 days
    No. of Young: 1-8, usually 2-6
    Habit: Any time of day, most active during the evening
    Diet: Rodents, eggs, birds, mid-sized mammals, will very occasionally go after humans if starving
    Lifespan: 25-30 years in the wild, 35-45 years in captivity

    The Eastern persian is a large felid native to the Atlantic coast along North America, with a native range from northern Quebec to southern New England and New York. While all species of persian are exclusively native to the New World, the Eastern persian, especially, exists in both domestic and feral states in various countries around the world, where its meowth form had been introduced as pets and vermin control. However, while the feral persians are not especially vicious, the truly wild populations across their native ranges have been known to attack hikers, and occasionally eat them. Their black-furred ears have only a very slight point to them. Their whiskers, which are noticeably shorter on female specimens, grow close together in six clumps – three on each side of their face. The persian uses its whiskers to judge the width of passages; if its whiskers can pass cleanly through, its whole body will fit through the gap. It also uses its whiskers to read air currents to sense the movement of prey. A hard red growth, known as a “flash bud” grows on the forehead – by holding their heads in the right position, they can reflect light from off this growth, sending a warning “This is my territory” message to any would be intruders. Their tails, about nineteen inches long, are usually held with tip of the tail curled towards itself – an odd posture that seems to be merely a tic, and does not serve any sort of purpose. Their paws are large – about five inches across – with 7/8th inch long claws, all of which are retractable. The toes splay apart when the animal runs – this, and the large tufts of fur between each toe, allow it to run across the top of snowbanks without breaking through. Wild individuals are a very pale cream color, which darkens slightly in summer. Pure white specimens can also occur, although they are rare. Fur coloration is much more varied among the domestic and feral persians, with the most common markings being brown forepaws and tail tip, which the wild specimens always lose when they evolve. The domestic persian’s common keeping of these markings is a form of neonatalism – an adult specimen retaining juvenile features that it would not normally. While “meowth marked” domestic Eastern persian are most common, minimal brown striping or patches are also often seen. Striped persians gained a huge surge in popularity among trainers and pet-keepers after one, named Morris, gained television fame due to pokémon-food advertisements in the 1980’s.

    Coin Hoarding among Meowth

    A behavior that does not exist among wild persians (although domestics and occasionally ferals will engage in it yet again due to neonatalism), but is famously associated with the animals, is meowth of all species’ hoarding of round, sparkling objects, which in the ever encroaching suburbs tended to be coinage. The reason they do this is because, unlike persian, meowth will establish permanent nests, not requiring the large territorial range of their mature form. By instinctively stacking round, flat rocks around their nests, the meowth was able to gain added protection from both predators and the weather. As humans took over more and more of the persian’s range, the young meowth grew adapted to urban life. Although no longer having need to gather objects, they will continue to do so from instinct, but will merely scatter them around their nest, rather than stack them. Trainers have used the coin-horde instinct to their advantage, developing an attack strategy, affectionally known as “Pay Day,” where the meowth or persian, either given a coin to hold in its mouth or finding one on its own, is trained to spit it at high velocity at the foe.

    While the coin-hoarding instinct is unique to the various meowth species, there have been reports of trainers who have successfully had pikachu or raichu perform the Pay Day attack, although pichu seem unable to grasp the concept.

    “Alley Cats”

    The well-known urban meowth, either introduced ferals or once wilds who grew used to comfortable urban living, almost never evolves, no matter how strong or old it gets. Persian are simply too large, and require a much vaster range, to be comfortable in the city, something that causes the switcher genes, triggers that cause the rapid growths to maturity that are “evolution,” to lay eternally dormant. Like all species, however, they are still perfectly capable of breeding without having reached their final form, and are prolific enough in some cities – Los Angeles especially reports massive trouble with the huge feral meowth populations – that they are considered pests, albeit one that the public finds cute enough to kick up a fuss at any mention of extermination attempts.

    Habits

    The Eastern persian is usually found in coniferous forests, but will also frequent mixed woodlands; primarily deciduous woodlands and surbuban areas it will avoid unless starving or driven out of its range.

    The truly wild ones are strictly solitary – the only time it will ever seek out others is during the breeding season, and even then, will make mating a quick affair. Much of their time is spent each day patrolling their territories, which are roughly five miles square per individual. The males will mark their presence by spraying trees on the borders of their territories with urine, and also by marking trees with its claws. If others ignore these warnings and try to enter, the persian will first send a warning by reflecting light from off its flash bud. If these warnings are ignored, the persian will attack and try to drive the invader out. If it is defeated, it will leave its previous territory, an outcast.

    They do not have permanent nests, but prefer to sleep wherever they can find a little shelter – under fallen logs, at the base of trees, caves, or small hollows.

    Food and Feeding

    While domestic persian are infamous for being “finicky,” a concept further pushed into the public awareness through the mentioned Morris commercials, wild ones are not nearly so fussy about what they will eat. Solitary hunters, they are strong enough to take down a full grown stantler alone, although they will rarely attack prey of that size. Their main food source seems to be Hudson pikachu (Sciurus hudsonicus, a species infamous for being introduced to England in Edwardian times with devastating effect to the native eastern tawnys [S. amberic]), to which they seem to be incredibly well adapted to hunting. Eastern persian are highly tolerant of electricity, an adaptation developed over thousands of years. When the pikachu (or pichu) is down on the ground, foraging, the persian will attack by coming between it and its tree and moving in for the kill, little phased by the chu’s attempts to paralyze.

    They have been known to eat humans, but only in times of major starvation. Still, approaching wild ones is not recommended under any circumstances.

    Breeding

    The Eastern persian has one breeding season, from August to October. When the females are fertile, the persian will gather into a loosely structured group, males staying about a quarter mile away from each other. Males compete for the female one at a time, generally through feats of strength such as leaping, climbing, and pouncing. The female will sniff each one, and, once all have courted, will follow the scent of the most powerful one to where they are staying. After mating, a noisy affair during which the female will screech repeatedly (both because felids have spiked penises and also to let the males know she’s no longer available), they will separate, forming no pair bonds. Ten to twelve days after mating, the female will lay her eggs. The eggs are about five inches in size, and a pale brown, flecked with spots of a darker brown. The eggs take over two months to incubate, during with the mother will only leave them to drink and hunt. The meowth are hatched fully furred, but are blind and death, and also will lack teeth. Weaned at eight weeks, the meowth will leave to find their own nests soon afterwards.

    Okay have done Chimecho, this is fun i think ill do another one soon.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Chimecho (Chemises Indene)
    Avg. length: 2 ft 0 in (0.60 m) Avg. Weight: 2.2 lb (1.0 kg)
    Habitat: Mountainous Areas
    Diet: Herbivore
    No. of Young: 1 - 2
    Lifespan: 7 years (wild), 10 years (captivity)
    Habit: Nocturnal


    Chimecho the wind chime pokemon,, it’s species is unknown an scientists are currently studying Chimecho in Kanto Labs, Cinnabar island. It is mostly widely accepted that it is a reptile though some seem to think it an odd mammal. They have long tails and use them to pluck fruit and berries though they have been observed eating leaves in the wild mountain tops of Mt. Pyre.

    Chimecho often live alone or find a long life mating partner of which they live together in small caves or rock openings. Mt. Pyre has a very high population of Chimecho yet they are very hard to find as they spend most of their time hiding and only make noise in windy weather.

    Their chiming sound comes from the ringing noise it cries which sounds like chiming when amplified by it’s hollow head. A Chimecho can produce seven different tones to communicate various messages to its kindred. If threatened, Chimecho can use its cries as a defensive weapon, turning them into ultrasonic waves that knock its foes back.

    Chimecho, being of a gentle nature won’t attack or usually approach a human but if a trainer is lucky enough to catch one they are gifted with a loving and caring friend. Unfortunately due to their rarity Chimecho are often illegally poached and sold in the market and it is now illegal to sell these pokemon anywhere on the streets or anywhere.

    Okay so that's Chimecho's entry and btw the above website is made up lol
    Bye

    I like the idea, but, should this really be in the Author's cafe and not in some other place?

    Your article was ok, but it really needs to be at least twice as long again. Maybe talk about their day to day behaviour and reproducing. Ill accept your reservations for now, but you really should edit your Chimecho article to make it a bit longer.

    I like the idea, but, should this really be in the Author's cafe and not in some other place?
    Thanks and its not my fault its in the authors cafe. This has been brought up many times before and it was not my choice to move it here. It was originally in the fan fic section, but a mod thought of it as more of a help thread, which could be considered true as it could very helpful, and so moved it here. So meh...

    I'd like to reserve Sudowoodo and Ludicolo.
    Yep sure...

    Its my birthday today so now im off to meet up with some friends...keep going everyone!!

    Tropius
    Dyslocosaurus tropius or Bellusaurus tropius

    Tropius are large quadrupedal pokemon with long necks that live in warm areas with heavy rainfall and thick plant growth. They are nominally warm-blooded and thermoregulate their body temperature, however, their bodies do not hold heat well and they cannot manage in colder climates. Tropius is generally classified as Dyslocosaurus tropius and placed with Venusaur and Meganium in scientific taxonomy due to to similarities in form and diet between the three, considered to fall into the general order of reptilian pokemon, however a minority disagrees, believing it to belong in a separate order. They identify it as Bellusaurus tropius instead.

    They are capable of moderate flight using four leaflike wings on their backs in a manner similar to Yanma, although it is believed to have evolved independently. They are poor sustained fliers and reserve this ability for moving across otherwise impassible barriers, such as walls and rivers, rather than as an ordinary method of locomotion. They rarely, if ever, use this ability to gain food. A lone Tropius may also attempt flight to escape predators. They are not especially maneuverable in air and have trouble in enclosed areas. Due to the flimsiness of the wings, they are often damaged, especially in battles or when used in forest areas where there are few places open enough to avoid hitting twigs and small branches. Extended use can also cause them to simply break under the strain. The wings do not have nerve endings, so they can easily be damaged accidentally. Once the wings have gained a certain degree of damage, they turn yellow and fall off, and new ones grow in their place. Occasionally Tropius have been observed to deliberately remove damaged wings by pulling them off.

    Tropius are considered frugivores, as their preferred diet are a number of fruits common to their area, although they are capable of eating other foods. Tropius use their long neck to more easily reach fruit. Folklore holds that a Tropius' love of fruit caused the growth of fruit often found growing from well-fed adult Tropius' necks. Scientists consider the belief false, and find it more likely that the opposite is true, with Tropius feeding on fruit to help gain required trace nutrients for their own fruit growth. The purpose of this fruit is unknown, although it is hypothesized as a food store or simply as a sign of health.

    Although captive Tropius can be kept singly, wild Tropius are always found in large herds between twenty and forty members. The herds have no strict leader although older, stronger Tropius are more likely to be followed by younger ones during foraging than vice versa, so they often effectively direct the herd's general movements. Tropius do not have any specialized herd structure, such as sentries or primary fighters. When alerted to a danger, all Tropius in the area will attack the threat. For this reason, predation is rare unless the Tropius has been separated from its herd first. It should be noted trainers attempting to capture Tropius face the same problem. However large scale capturing attempts such as those used by poachers are very successful against Tropius as they can be captured as a group and so collected more rapidly than more solitary pokemon.

    Tropius pair up for the duration of their mating season. The exact criteria used by females to pick males is vague. Males often engage in shoving matches during this period, and winners are more likely to win females, but some males who do poorly at this manage to get mates over those who did better. The quality of the fruit bunch on a male's neck also appears to be a factor, but again, this does not account for all pairings.

    Some Tropius pair up with the same Tropius yearly while others pick a new mate each year, and some will skip a year on occasion but primarily spend mating season with the same Tropius, and some alternate between a small handful of mates.

    Tropius were originally considered standard monogamists, but closer studies and genetic testing have found Tropius that bear young of a Tropius other than their paired mate, and that some pair up with multiple partners, generally but not always one male and two females. In addition, some Tropius form same-sex pairs.

    Wow, this is an amazing idea, and I really like it. It adds a creative and, well, 'realistic' touch to the Pokemon Universe. Infact, I like it so much, I've considered doing one myself.

    So, if possible, please reserve the Zubat/Golbat/Crobat line. Hopefully, my entry will satisfy your criteria. I may not be able to do it, so I'll let you know if I cannot do it.

    Keep up the work, peeps XD



    EDIT: Also, would it be recommended to use the Pokemon 'version' of the world (Like Kanto, Johto, etc.) or to use our world?
    Charizard is the best fire-type starter there ever was, is, and will be.

    Great tropius article, icemew. I liked the whole thing. Tropius threesomes and civil unions? How left-wing of you! Right on!

    I'm chugging away at the metagross article. Doing a paragraph a night. Past week has been nuts and can't devote too much time to it. Ciao.
