Lugia are very rare and very ancient species of Pokemon. They have been seen only briefly a handful of times in written history until recent when one was successful captured. Though Lugia have only been seen in the wild in the ocean and deep oceanic cave systems, they have in fact been identified as having great psychic abilities. There have long been myths of seeing a Lugia flying over the sea as a herald of a mighty storm. Upon study of the caught Lugia, it would appear that there may be some truth to these myths as Lugia may actually use psychokinesis to hover above the sea even if the cause of this behavior remains unknown. Though they are extremely powerful swimmers, they can move on land with surprising mobility sliding on their belly quite hastily. Like other advanced psychic Pokemon, Lugia will occasionally make contact with humans via telepathy. However, these telepathic messages are mostly dick and fart jokes, real mature, Lugia.
A common denizen of coral reefs the world over is Corsola. Corsola is a large, ugly fish with many fleshy protrusions that appear to mimic the coral of there surroundings. Though they can come in a variety of colors, by far the most common is a salmon pink. Though mostly harmless, Corsola have very venomous spines on their dorsal fin which can inflict a toxic sting.
Like Corsola, Seadra also possess venomous spines, however they have many more and are much more aggressive. Though not very good swimmers, they can expel high pressure streams of waters from their mouth and propel themselves backwards with some haste. They have also been known to "ink" by squirting their black digestive fluids from their mouth to create a cloud of darkness by which they can escape harm.
Luvdiscs are a common tropical fish Pokemon. They are all together unremarkable aside from one very important aspect; their scales. Luvdisc possess heart shaped scales that glisten with some luminosity. These scales are highly treasured by older people who have left society to pursue silly things like heart scales.
Claunchers are a newer find to science. Unlike their relatives, Crawdaunt, Claunchers are exclusively found in salt water. They possess a unique claw mechanism that can fire a cavitation bubble at their prey. The pressure from this attack is enough to kill smaller sea faring Pokemon. Though they have rarely been observed, Claunchers can grow to a massive size, though most of this size is in their pistol-like claw.
Another common site in tropical waters are Mantines. These large cousins of Sharpedo are very docile and quite friendly with divers. They often harbor one or two Remoraids. However it has been discovered that some of these Remoraid are not what they appear. As many as 40% of Remoraids found on Mantines are in fact juvenile Octillery. They use their tentacles to form the shape of a Remoraid, effectively mimicking one for the safety of the large Mantine. Once they grow large enough they drop away to become the Octillery we know.
Qwilfish is small spiny fish. It is highly poisonous, but unlike Corsola and Seadra, its toxins are not secreted through the spines that cover its body. It's poison is inside its body, effectively killing most Pokemon that try their hand at eating it. This brave Qwilfish may not win the battle with Lugia, but it will win the war. Aside from the horrible upset stomach Lugia is certain to receive, those spikes probably wont come out as easily as they go down.

THIS is nice.
I’m now more convinced that lugia should be water type. And nice idea explaining a fish becoming an octopus.
I like the juvenile Octillery concept.
I'd love to see what an Aeroblast looked like from that thing but I'd hate to be the TARGET of said Aeroblast!!!
Wow. Big tortoise.

Fantabulous creature. S
I swear, you know how to make Lugia both scary and awesome at the same time.

I like the webbing on its fins. It gives more of a water-type vibe to it as opposed to the hands on the official art .

It would seem that Lugia is informed of human comedic tastes...

I love reading the world building that goes with these amazing realistic interpretations. It's super fascinating and it's fun to look into how much work you put into the designs themselves. This art is amazing as well.
How long do these mother truckers take to draw holy fuck.
Lugia brings me back so many memories of when I played soul silver. This is the best drawing of my favorite legendary yet!
I've seen many of these in the past, and I must say, these are incredible takes of Pokemon. Love the realism applied to these larger-than-life creatures. Phenomenal work!

I would have made Corsala a crustacean.
But Corsola doesn't learn any poison type moves naturally :^(
