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.

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?

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!

Boy, that's a bit dark. But it is accurate. In real life , some animals have a huge number of babies because of their high mortality rate.

Hey there! I sent you a note mentioning a request for this series. I'll just repeat it here though. Basically, I'd like to see Caterpie and it's evolutions, or pretty much any Pokemon that evolves via cocooning. I recently learned how real life caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies, and I found it fascinating, so I'd love to see your take on such a process.

Caterpie is definitely coming up soon! I actually don't know much about the biological processes involved in insect metamorphosis! Maybe you can help :)

DexAntares Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2016
I'd be glad to! As I understand it, caterpillars actually have vestiges of the organs and body parts they *will* have as a butterfly. The hardware, so to speak, is pre-installed. It's just unlocked during the cocoon stage. And contrary to popular belief, the caterpillar does not entirely turn into "goo" in the cocoon. Parts of it's body do turn into a sort of goo, but there are still parts that remain between all three stages, further developing inside the cocoon.
