I could see it start as a water fairy and become a water dark.

Also on the note of the tardigrade pokemon. I'd imagine it would be ice/bug and have an ability that negated its weaknesses. Seeing how tardigrades can survive even in space. Probably leave it as a single pokemon with no evo like pyukumyuku
Alternatively a Bug/Steel tardigrade with Flash Fire.

Is Malamar based on the vampire squid or not? Because that feels like a Pokemon that writes itself. You could mix a bit of the H.G Wells Martians in there, as they are cephalopod aliens who suck blood with their tentacles
