Do I have a dog in my region yet? A canine of some sort? I forget. So here's the love child of Growlithe and Lillipup, Hottobun!

When I was conceptualizing this Fakemon, I kept in mind I wanted the last area of my region (before the Victory Road) to be a taiga-esque place with a Fire-type Gym Leader as the 8th badge. What would be his signature Pokemon? I had a few Fire-types already, but I wanted to keep something related to the snowy theme. And after a moment of enlightenment, I remembered the St. Bernard dog species and their fame for being great rescue dogs. Stoutland kinda has a little bit of those traits, but I wanted to focus specifically on the species instead of just pieces of it. Also I want to eat some steam buns after looking at this. Y U LOOK SO TASTY? /calling you Dumpling
Its typing was being debated on being Fire/Ice or pure Fire originally, but the former I felt didn't cover the Ice-type half as much, and the latter I wanted to distinguish it from Growlithe as a Fire-type canine. 

Hottobun's typing is unique only to its own line and Pyroar's. Its abilities and stats allow it to either tank hits and support, or dish out some moderate damage. Olympic Fire, a hidden ability for Ligroar, is excellent at speeding past potential Fire-type threats. Think Fire won't be enough? Hit them hard with a surprising Scald to the face! Pile drive them with Guren Dive! A bit overdramatic for a basic stage Pokemon, but hey, apply this to its evolved form and you're set! Overcoat also works well when pairing Hottobun onto weather teams. Jump into hailstorms without the fear of residual damage! Save your teammates in doubles/triples by braving the snowstorm! Etc, etc. Love it. It's a freaking fluffy snow puppy. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?

Usable SpA and Speed, and with Eviolite it can take hits good enough. Fire/Normal really isn't that good of a tanker type though...

sounds like a food hot bun
RayquazaMaster Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
This is so cute! :D
Voltex12345 Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ok this makes a lot more sense than the litleo yes!
but typing DX
Dragonith Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What's wrong with it? :?
Voltex12345 Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
the fire normal type D8

it makes it subjected to more weaknesses than it needs to!
if it's a fire type alone, very well
and i understand that people normally like to make use of the normal in there for ghost coverage
but let's be honest here
what happens most often?
you needing coverage against a ghost move?
or teh absence of weakness against fighting types? (which now a days, every pokemon has access to)
Dragonith Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Eh, being a Normal-type does have its advantages however (apart from the Ghost-type resistance). Sure you have that glaring Fighting-type problem, but if you have a Normal-type out, you should know when your Pokemon can't take the incoming Close Combat. Normal-types in general also have a versatile movepool that allows them to be a little more unpredictable. And had I left this a pure Fire-type, people would be saying "Arcanine exists you know. :/"

There's a plus and minus to everything. Nothing's perfect.
Voltex12345 Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
true yes
not necessarily the case, (the: normal types have a greater move pool) one
i mean yes, most normals do
but in most cases, it's not much of a good thing, or make much of a difference.
in this guy's case, Giga impact isn't necessary.

and it's very rare to find a pokemon that doesn't have a decent move pool
there are those that bother me like Ampharos not being able to learn flash cannon for example
it's the LIGHT pokemon, HOW can't it learn that? DX

still it's mostly satisfactory, the moves i'm never gonna teach are not really something i'm gonna miss (notice how i use the word "I" a lot, i can only speak for myself)

why not have a non normal type with a large movepool? (plenty of that exists already yes i think)
one that didn't add a potential weakness to the mix
Dragonith Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Er... it really depends on the Pokemon. :/
Having a diverse movepool gives you more options. And why'd you bring up Giga Impact as an example? Practically every final stage Pokemon can learn it, along with Hyper Beam. Normal-types tend to get a lot of moves other than just Normal is what I'm saying (e.g. Exploud gets Fire-type, Ice-type, and other attacks). I'm not saying ALL of them get such diverse movepools. I'm just saying generally they do tend to get a lot of various moves to use.

Again, nothing is perfect. Just because it adds a potential weakness doesn't mean the Pokemon can't handle the threat. And even if it couldn't, that's what its teammates are for. I'm fine with this Fakemon line's current typing, and I don't plan on changing it anytime soon. I can't think of anything that'd fit them more without it not making sense.
Voltex12345 Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oh yeah.... bad example ._.
i hope i at least made my point across with it

some pokemon don't have enough move pools ;_;
you know how for example almost every single water type pokemon can learn ice moves?
Keledo doesn't for example, and he's the one that needs it the most considering the flying weakness

yes generally they do, i said that too :3
yes there are counter weakness moves that almost every pokemon can use
the water types knowing ice moves is one of them

question, have you ever used an ice type in a team of yours in a pokemon game?
i have personally tried using lapras, weirelin, deogong cloister
and the diference between them and any other pure water type or type mixed with water
is that these, have gained resistance to hail, and had more weaknesses added, various of which are so troublesome considering almost every other type mix doesn't suffer that problem
rock types which didn't pose a threat at all, became a hazard, fighting too
but mostly rock types, because considering the water type is the one i normally use against rock types (unless i have a ground or a grass in the team as well) the team mates are the ones that depend on that pokemon, i eventually saw them more as a burden than an asset at a certain point.
for instances Pyroar does not fair well against lucario... which was needless really

all i'm saying is almost all the perks could be kept, yet avoid the downsides. it's just a thought i'd feel would be plausible.

oh why certainly ^-^
in fact i wouldn't suggest you to do otherwise, i've been a close fan of yours for some time and i can say, i enjoy your posts.
you are the one responsible for your creations, you decide, pay mind that my opinion is not one that suggests you should change, it's just a view
your decision obviously, pokemon is quite fun because of the unique trait it has of it's variety of choice.
your preference is yours, the typing you placed is a product of your imagination, which should run wild (or tamed, what ever metaphor suits your fancy XD)
Dragonith Featured By Owner May 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Keldeo does get Icy Wind iirc. But its definitely lacking in the Ice-type department.

I've used a few Ice-types before as well, yeah. And well, of course there are downsides and pluses to having a secondary type. Even with things stacked against a Pokemon, you still can avoid the downsides with the right moves or the right teammates.

And thank you for respecting my decision.~

Personally, I think Steampunk is more of a Water activated ability. Might I suggest Pyrotechnics?
Dragonith Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm... perhaps. I'll think about it. I wasn't too sure about Steampunk earlier myself, actually.
