Amphibian Pokemon by DragonlordRynn Amphibian Pokemon by DragonlordRynn
“Pokemon can be classified by following criteria: A low reproduction rate (with the offspring being in most cases of its mother’s species), supernatural abilities like extended longevity (in some cases, as seen in the so-called ‘Legendary Pokemon’, it exceeds several thousand years), the ability to control different elements, large-sized bodies, a sudden second and third mutation/maturity stage, some of which are triggered by the radiation of different ores (and a newly-discovered fourth stage, the ‘Mega-Evolution’ which is triggered by ‘Mega Stones’), and near-human/superhuman intellect, even in animals like arthropods. It was generally believed that Pokemon where a whole different act of Creation, or even extraterrestrial life-forms.

In 1850 however, when a female West-Highland Terrier gave birth to a litter of Lillipups, people began to realize that Pokemon did come, in fact, from normal animals. This caused several theories to spring up until in 1976 the young Pokemon Professor Samuel Oak discovered a virus in one of his samples. First, he believed it to be a contamination, but then curiosity got the better of him. He noted a section in the virus’ DNA he found oddly familiar. In a sample of his Charizard’s DNA, he recognized the exact same section of viral DNA. This lead to a breakthrough in Pokemon research, explaining exactly where Pokemon came from: The ‘Pokerus’ Virus affects the reproductive organs, slipping its genetic information into its hosts gametes and changing the offspring to mutate into Pokemon.”

Frogs and salamanders. Bet you didn't see that one coming.

December 1st, 2016: Changed the main file so the Pokémon are now up-to-date.
They include: Poliwag, Poliwhirl, Poliwrath, Politoad, Tympole, Palpitoad, Seismitoad, Croagunk, Toxicroak, Geodude, Geodude Aloan Form, Graveler, Graveler Aloan Form, Froakie, Frogadier, Greninja, Grimer, Grimer Aloan Form, Muk, Muk Aloan Form, Mudkip, Marshtomp, Swampert, Mega Swampert, Wooper, Quagsire, Slowpoke, Slowbrow, Mega Slowbro, Slowking, Lickitung, Lickilicky

Notes:
-I will not make an Ash Greninja
-Grimer and Muk can survive in toxic conditions, becoming toxic themselves. Their Aloan counterparts' colorful appearance is to warn others.
-Geodude and Graveler are not related to Golem (which is a tortoise). Instead, Golem likes to hide its eggs among groups of Geodude in hibernation
-Poliwhirl grows different, depending on its surrounding. If it is wet, it will turn into Politoad, is it dry, it will turn into Poliwrath.
-Slowpokes that do not leave the water become Slowking.
-Seriously, I will not make an Ash Greninja


PLEASE NOTE: This is how I see the Pokemon. It is fine to be of different opinion, but please tolerate mine.

Nice job,although I would personally make grimer a large colony of small cnidarians like a Portuguese man-of-war, I also like it as a frog.

Yeah, the first idea had been slime mold, actually.

But then I've seen its face and the fact they have arms, and then I thoughtof big fat frogs.

I what kind of species is slowpke that when it age it growth can form spikes on it tail and a crown like feature on it head and wha5 kind of shell a mega slowbro is living in is related to shellder

Slowpoke is a salamander. As long they're young, they're slowpokes. At some point in their lives, they grow a very tough armor around their tails for defensive purposes; male and female alike, though it seems males are more likely to grow such armor.
They like laying their eggs into caverns or large shells like those of freshwater Shellder- which has nothing to do with real sea-water shellder, by the way. So it is not unusual to see Slopoke and/or Slowbro sitting inside shells.

Mind you, the growth into Slowbro only happens if the young Slowpoke larva actually leave the water. If not, they retain their gills and remain in water, but grow armor on their head to break open ice for air in winter.

Really liked it,even tough in my personal realistic pokeo method of view pokemons don't have the super abilities they hae on the franchise with some exeptions and are natural animals(Not mutaded),I'm defenetivelly using some of these designs for my view of them.
In fewers words
FABULOUSFabulous!

I see your point, but if they didn't have special abilities, they wouldn't be Pokémon, now would they?

SansMegaloX Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2017
Huh,good point.
Well,some still have abilities,with charizard being able to spit a hard fire to fight for dominance in groups and to literraly ''Cook'' food,or claunchers launching powerfull water beans to stun prey.
But eh,i don't think you could see a giant three headed flying nocturnal hydra and say it's just a regular animal :P

Almost. Poliwhirl and Poliwrath are basing on the Indian purple frog, while Politoed is basing on the common frog. Grimer and Muk are Horned Frogs/Pacman Frogs.

I never said it doesn't. All realistic Pokémon are able to (as long their body doesn't weigh too much) stand on their hind legs.
They just prefer standing on all four.

Removed them. They're with the dragons now- since one of the definitions for Dragons is: Six or more limbs, despite being a vertebrate, with one pair fully functional, but of different build than the others.

Reply

DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2017
Currently unknown, though there are normal animals that suddenly grow a second pair of legs (like some cows do as some sort of mutation)
As for growing more limbs as they mature- Frogs do it too.
