The inner workings of Oddium wanderus (oddish's canon scientific name)

Aww, poor little Oddishes :( I want to catch one and show it that it can be more than a mindless drone :)

It's funny that you think plant leaves have fat storages and flesh.

First of all- Where does it say "fat" or "flesh". Read the descriptions.
second- It's only a "plant" in so far as the game categorizes it as one.
But it moves and consumes energy at a rate no existing plant, or fungus, or slime mold could ever match. The fun part of these is exploring real science, and seeing them grafted onto non real creatures. This art is interesting to me because it uses a real piece of plant biology like turgor pressure in the feet to justify the movement of the oddish witn no need for muscles. Or "flesh" I guess you would mistakenly call it.  

If Oddish was all plant matter then it wouldn't be able to do th movement and behavior it displays, and its fun to imagine possible explanations for its existence. Sure this creature doesn't closely match any real plants. If its leaves contained just vascular tissue and xylem then it would technically be closer to a plant, but it wouldn't have any creative or scientific insight into the function of a creature like Oddish. 

Im not sure what prompted such weirdly bitter and sarcastic responses. But nobody is interested in your grumpy bullshit.
It's clear you'd rather just draw a normal raddish and leave a note in the description- ODDISH AREN'T REAL.
But that's boring as hell.

The potential of evolution far exceeds what has been seen in this one world, and what humans are able to explain with their current theories and assumptions.

this could be a very VERY dark life for my poor pokemon, better catch it before someone eat it!

Oddish serving as mindless seed-bearing drones to the Zerg Overmind Vileplume Collective is actually REALLY interesting!

I would have thought Oddish would taste kind of like an Onion or maybe a Turnip.

Here's a question I pondered recently that you might enjoy: 
Do plant-like pokémon defecate, or do they use the fibre in their food to grow the plant-like parts of their body?

I'd personally love to see a gogoat done.. or some type of ghost type like a ghastly.. 

Seriously I adore this and need more of these. Wonderful job. You should make some sort of go fund me for these! A project I definitely would back and support.

Oddish has always been my all-time favorite Pokemon. Even in Pokemon Go- I'm determined to have an Oddish Army- does this mean I'm the Vileplume Queen?!? XD I'm quite saddened to read they are plucked like a weed and eaten though!

Keep these up, they are awesome! It'll be interesting to see the entry for Ditto!

I think you should do Mew or Mewtwo's anatomy.
