Origin of Name: Dinosaur+Saw= Dinosaw.
Based on: A Stegosaurus, a dinosaur with plates lined on its back.

BST: 60/60/80/20/55/20 = 295

*Increases the power of tail moves. (e.g. Poison Tail, Iron Tail, Dragon Tail)
*Greatly powers down super-effective moves.
-Reduces super-effective damage by 1/2.


=============================

EDIT(10/09/17): Updated design! Added BST provided by karlleungkm! Ability name change!

Aaaand the first update to the Fakedex in months! I will hold true to my promise. This is the year Excelo will finally be 100%!

Truth be told, after I revamped Titanegg's design, Dinosaw's art didn't exactly age well in comparison. Even Turmoid's line still looks alright after these many years. Hoo boy. As such, I wanted to give Dinosaw's art some much needed TLC, but I was hesitant on doing so due to my plans at the time. Well, that indecision is no longer here. Dinosaw's art is now updated with that of my newest art and looks good as new! Welcome back, Dinosaw!

Solid Steel was meant to be a stronger counterpart to Solid Rock in terms of naming sense and effect, but I didn't think it sounded as effective as it did years ago. Now it's renamed to Reinforced, referring to reinforced steel (Obviously.)! 

Sap Sipper was replaced with Thagomizer (originally Beanstack's signature hidden ability) because... well, the whole line is based on stegosaurids. It didn't make sense that it didn't have this as an ability.

EDIT(06/06/13): New display template!
Introducing the revived Pokemon from the Plate Fossil, Dinosaw!

I had Dinosaw's and its evolution's designs in my sketchbook for a few weeks now, waiting until I could get a solid picture for the other two fossils before posting them. If you look closely, Dinosaw's tail and back resemble a saw. A little indicator for its evolution. ;)

Think of Solid Steel as Solid Rock's stronger brother. Better resistance means Dinosaw will be taking hits more easily. But let's not leave the other two abilities out, as they can also fill roles in Dinosaw's movesets. Dinosaw gains Slash, Rock Throw, Metal Sound, and the required prehistoric move, Ancient Power.

i love this :D
it's like a puppy if it was a stegosaurus
personally i think thagomizer should be its normal ability as that seems too perfect for it to not naturally have
if only iron tail had better accuracy

That is also true, haha. I'll think it over later.

With the way the new design's angled and the strutting pose he has, the ol' Smugleaf has a rival now, in Smugosaur. =P

Just a tip, but you most likely didn't list what Thagomizer does in the description.

Yep, forgot it. My bad!

*Doubles the power of tail moves. (e.g. Poison Tail, Iron Tail, Dragon Tail)

I just wanted to point out that 2x power seems a bit excessive. Similar abilities such as Tough Claws, Strong Jaw, Iron Fist, etc. only tend to give 1.3x - 1.5x. Up to you, of course.

You make a good point actually. I'm mostly taking into account the fact that tail moves have relatively low accuracy despite their power. But, I'll think it over later. :)

Whoops! Forgot to include that!

I can imagine this Pokémon using Rollout, with the buzzsaw hitting.

Oh, so Solid Steel is like Necrozma's ability?

Hi! Can I ask if it's okay to use this pokemon and it's evolution as inspiration for a pokemon in our Pokemon Tabletop campaign? One of my players has reviving a previously unknown fossil pokemon for a goal. I could just use one already in the game, and say in this region it's not been discovered, but where's the fun in that?

Oop, just noticed your comment. 

If its just as an inspiration, that's fine. I don't own the actual animal after all, haha.
