Hypno's Lullaby + Other creepy Pokemon factsI found this on Halloween night. Since I was kind of idle the last couple of days due to Halloween Shenanigans, I thought I'd share this with you guys. It's pretty creepy and its also pretty official - Meaning that this isn't really a fan-made lullaby. That only adds to the creepiness of it.Hypno's Lullaby + Other creepy Pokemon facts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hypno: Hypnosis Pokemon:
It carries a pendulum-like device. There was once an incident in which it took away a child it hypnotized."
Come little children, come with me
Safe and happy you will be
Away from your homes, now let us run
With Hypno, you'll have so much fun
Oh, little children, please don't cry
Hypno wouldn't hurt a fly
Be free, be free be free to play
Come down in my cave with me to stay
Oh, little children, please don't squirm
Those ropes, I know, will hold you firm
Hypno tells you this is true
But sadly, Hypno lied to you
Oh, little children, you mustn't leave

Eggs and Baby PokemonOne of the most mysterious things about Pokemon is exactly how they come into this world. We know only that Pokemon come from eggs, which leaves us with so many questions. While we may not know just how they come into our lives, we do know how to care for them.Eggs and Baby Pokemon2 years ago in Settings More Like This
You may notice I use the term 'gravid'. While this term is used for reptiles, fish, birds and insects, the fact that Pokemon are oviparous(egg-laying) means that the term is generally more accurate than 'pregnant'.
An egg is an organic incubator, containing a developing embryo(and in later stages, a fetus). In most birds, reptiles, insects, molluscs, fish and monotremes, the egg is expelled from the body and develops outside the mother's body until the embryo is sufficiently developed.
It is not currently known how Pokemon fertilize an ovum. The exact time between fertilization of the ovum and oviposition is estimated to be extremely short, but has not been accurately measured. Pokemon lay a single egg at a time, but

Releasing my ModelsAs per many people's request, I'm thinking about releasing by models for download so people can use it as reference for their work, or even for texturing and rigging and whatever (although I have to warn you that I'm far from a professional, so if you want to use them for games or animations, you may have to edit them heavily to fit your needs. I'm preetty sure they're messy in this regard, since I make them solely for the looks).Releasing my Models2 years ago in Personal More Like This
They're blender files, although if there's any way to convert them for sculptris, zbrush and other 3d editing software without messing them up please tell me so more people can make use of them.

Along with that, I'm thinking of doing a contest: I'll release a model of some kind of dinosaur in a specific position, and the challenge is to send me pictures that you've made usi
Ch. 1 - A New StudentIt is said that in ancient legends around the world, Sinnoh for example, there was a time where there was no distinction between Human and Pokemon. Most people think that it means that there were relationships between a human and a pokemon that went more than just friendship. Some think it went even further.Ch. 1 - A New Student2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
You see, ever since recorded time, there were stories, myths, legends, rumors, and hoaxes of shapeshifters. One of the tales speaks of a Ditto changing one being into another. In the search of truth, scientists in the Kalos Region discovered a set of genes in the transforming pokemon that stays constant, the recently named Stability Genes, for it keeps the Ditto from dying either through cellular instability or cellular decay. Of course, the tale speaks of the Ditto using its transformative power on another being, not itself. Any truth found therein has been lost to the mists of time. – Anthropology Professor Archibald Winston, Relationships Between Man and Pokemon Spe

Right, so I'm going to tell you about my pet plant. The first thing you should know is I'm not a scientist or a botanist, or even a florist or amateur gardner. So I really don't know anything about this and I'm probably not doing this whole write-up thing correctly. All the same I've been taking notes on this thing and I'm going to type them all up and save them as a document which I will update as I learn more.

Preening FeetPreening Feet2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, apparently Some species of hummingbird (sword-billed hummingbird in the pictures) use their feet for preening since their bills are so long and awkwardly-shaped. That makes me think of how deinonychosaurs might have used their toe claws to preen, almost like a dog. Perhaps therizinosaurs used their hand claws as well? That must've looked funny.

Dangerous Water PredatorsI greatly enjoy a swim or a surf, and the ocean habitat is full of some of the world's most diverse creatures. However, this vast habitat is also full of potential dangers. Avoiding injury is easy, and a person isn't particularly tasty fare for most Pokemon, but prevention is always the best thing.Dangerous Water Predators3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Tentacool and Tentacruel
Tentacool and their evolutions are a sort of non-polyp Cnidarian(or a Medusa) that frequent ocean areas. On their own, they're not as dangerous to humans, but these jellyfish Pokemon have a nasty tendency to 'bloom', or swarm during a period of about nine to ten days after the full moon. When swarming, the 'orbs' on the sides of these jellies' heads are bio-luminescent, which makes them easy to see in the water.
Like other members of Medusozoa, these two species have a powerful sting caused by nematocysts, or stinging cells. Contact with a tentacle releases the barbed nematocysts into the skin, which release venom. While a single sting is unlikely to do much,
Shiny PokemonShiny or alternate-colored Pokemon are effectively the same as their normal counterparts and generally show no differences aside from the one that matters the most: their appearance. Many species of Pokemon and organisms in general are never exact duplicates of one another and have some form of variation within their body structure, color patterns or something else that sets them apart from the rest. Shiny Pokemon, however, are unique in that they possess a color pattern on their fur or skin that is abnormally distinct from that normally associated with the species. This rare coloration is not due to a random variation but a genetic mutation within the genes of a subject's DNA that control their external color patterns. These distinct mutations are incredibly rare and only occur at a rate of one birth per 4096 normal births, making them extremely valuable to the right people and highly sought-after among collectors worldwide; thankfully, theShiny Pokemon3 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Starring up at the sky is a Linoone. His name is Fries, and he’s been through a lot.
He was once a HM and pickup slave. Now, he is, as his trainer calls it, a bro.
Fries turned. Seeing who spoke, he smiled slightly. “Hi Salad.”
Salad walks up to Fries, and stands next to the Linoone, who had looked back at the sky.
”You’re thinking about them, aren’t you?” Salad asked after a few minutes.
Fries nodded. By “them”, Salad meant their fallen teammates. Fries had experienced more deaths than any other member of the team. All of them had experienced the death of at least two teammates, but Fries had seen ten.
”Who, exactly, are you thinking about?” The Bellossom asked, even though he already knew the answer.
Fries sighed. “Mostly Omlette, Taquito, and Frittata.”

MOSTLY A TRUE STORY
One Friday afternoon both my roommate and I arrived home about the same time. Over a beer he told me he was going trolling at the local bar later.
I was a bit older than he and had no desire to party or drink, so the talk got aroung to locking me up in a wrist /ankle set of cuffs until he got back. I had just bought them in the mail and hadn't had a chance to really try them out yet so I said OK. He urged me to slip into a swim suit or shorts as clothes might just get in the way (of all the clinking he was thinking).
I retired to the bedroom and emerged in my USMC swim suit / shorts carrying the darby cuff chain assembly. He pronounced his approval and clamped the cuffs with only 3 inches between them on in front of me.
Bending down he began to affix the ankle fetters with about 18 inches apart hooked in the middle to the verticle chain, as I reminded him it wasn't too late to change his mind (was I having a premonition?). CLICK, pause CLICK. I was ful
TemptationThe sound of sweet laughter was everywhere. Followed by the pitter patter of bare feet on soft flooring. The atmosphere was one of bright colours and shiny kiddish decorations. The main play area was stacked with brightly coloured and soft bricks and other huge toys. Big coloutful paintings in a kiddish design stood on the walls. But it was clear what the main intention of this place was. For in the middle of the play area. Which was littered with all sorts of feathery and fluffy toys and tools. A little arena stood where dozens of children. Boys and girls of all ages stood watching the two boys in the middle wrestle.Temptation5 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

Introducing: The Jackalopes pt. 3Introducing: The Jackalopes pt. 31 year ago in Settings More Like This
Although their ancestors seem to have been fairly ordinary looking generalist ornithopods, Laurasiornithopoda of today consist of three highly derived clades, each adapted to a very different lifestyle. The jackalopes (Struthiodactylidae) have remained most true to their ancestors' lifestyle, being small fleet-footed grazers or low-browsers although they've taken the running lifestyle to its extremes, while the vanguards (Vanguardidae) have become huge plodding armoured tanks that echo the nodosaurs of old. Even stranger still are the duckongs (Laticanatidae) which have taken to a new element, paddling in rivers and oceans like weird duck-manatee-hybrids, while being clumsy and near helpless when they venture on land out of the necessity to lay their eggs.
The Earliest fossils of animals with recognizably struthiodactylid characters appear in the fossil record in the Early Eocene, but these ani

Once upon a time there was a small boy named Timothy. He lived on a farm with his parents and his older sister. He wasn't the nicest of boys, but his parents and sister loved him all the same. But there was one thing that bothered his parents. He refused to take care of the sheep and the other animals on the farm. He wasn't a small boy any longer and there weren't many years left before he would become a man. But he simply refused to take care of the duties his parents entrusted him with. They tried punishing him, they tried bribing him and they tried reasoning with him, but nothing worked. This worried them immensely, since they feared no one would be able to take care of the farm after they died.
But one day a lady came by the farm. They had never seen her before and they were sure she wasn't from around here. But since Tim's parents were nice people they invited the lady in for coffee. She presented herself as Erica a
The KelpieThe Kelpie1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The Kelpie, or Brook horse (Pullum nyas) is a species of semiaquatic equid indigenous to the northern Occident.
The Kelpie is 5-6 feet long, and weighs 530-880 lb. It is a very basal member of equidae, with a stocky build, short legs, and four-toed feet. The body is primarily grey, with a white underbelly, face, mane, lower legs, tail, and spots on the back, and flanks. The jaws are narrow, and equipped with small tusks. The toes are splayed and webbed, for swimming and walking on moist ground.
Unlike most equids, Kelpies are solitary, and fiercely defend their territories from intruders. Kelpies spend most of their daylight hours in and around water, but leave the water at dusk and travel inland to graze. Their diet consists primarily of aquatic vegetation, and grass, but they supplement their diet with meat such as fish, frogs, small mammals, birds, and carrion. Kelpies are most infamous for eating the corpses of drown

Tamisiocaris borealis (it's from Greenland) was allready described in 2010 but the fossil was taphonomic speaking suboptimal and it need new finds from expeditions in 2009 and 2011 bring more light into the anatomy of this bizzare animal. What these new fossils, especially a large appendage, shows is like the wet dream of any cambrium fanatic. These organs seems to be the feeding apparatus of an animal which prefer prey of the size of 0,49 mm.
