Dinosaur Pokemon by DragonlordRynn Dinosaur 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.”

Apparently the Pokérus Virus had been around much longer than anyone thought. The existance of Dinosaur Pokémon
proves this, as those infected with the Pokerus were better adapted at surviving whatever exterminated the real Dinosaurs. That's why Dinosaur Pokémon still exist today, while Dinosaurs themselves don't.

Again, you have to bow low to :iconarvalis:, because that guy is my God of realism Pokemon now.

December 5th, 2016: Updated the main file with newer Art, they include now:
Aerodactyl, Mega Aerodactyl, Drampa, Lapras, Aron, Lairon, Aggron, Mega Aggron, Shieldon, Bastiodon, Cranidos, Ramparados, Magby, Magmar, Magmortar, Breloom, Palkia, Larvitar, Pupitar, Tyranitar, Mega Tyranitar, Turtwig, Grottle, Torterra, Axew, Fraxure, Haxorus, Goodra, Chikorita, Bayleef, Meganium, Tropius, Amaura, Aurorus, Dialga, Jangmo-o, Hakomo-o, Kommo-o, Groudon, Primal Groudon, Gibble, Gabite, Garchomp, Mega Garchomp, Tyrunt, Tyrantrum, Treecko, Grovyle, Sceptile, Mega Sceptile, Scyther, Archen, Archeops, White Kyurem, Reshiram

Notes:
-While not exactly 'Dinosaurs', Aerodactyl, Lapras and Drampa are saurian enough to end here.
-I want to thank Skyrim and its Screenshots for the base of Mega Aerodactyl.
-Did you notice? Dinosaurs have the highest amount of Mega Pokémon compared to the total Pokémon.
-Magmar and Breloom are the descendants to Ramparados, while Aggron is the descendant of Bastiodon.
-Breloom eggs look very similar to Shroomish clusters, and Breloom makes its nest near those fungi.

It's ok if I ask you a little question? On reshiram, what do you think it could be the "rings" on their neck and tail? Training collars?

This is cool,but why pokemons like tyranturm are dragon types???

Because I don't classify them by type, but appearance.

Not really. Since Pokémon have been revered as magical creatures before the invention of Pokéballs, people treated them with respect (don't want to piss off the fire-breathing lizard, after all). Rarer and more powerful Pokémon like Reshiram, Arceus, etc. were worshipped as Gods. People made them jewellry to worship them.

Did you partly base Dialga on Amargasaurus like Amaura and Aurorus are?

What dinosaur is Groudon based on?

What dinosaur is Garchomp? Almost looks like a Carnotaurus

I think Tyrannitar would have looked good as a spiky Giganotosaurus rather than a herbivore but it still looks good here. Did you base it on a Stegosaur? And which one did you base it on?

I love how you made the Magmar line Pachycephalosaurs as well as Breloom one too.

Tyrunt looks like it is trying to eat Treecko

Treecko, Grovyle, Sceptile, Mega Sceptile, my favorite Grass starter and arguably my favorite grass type. I love my Ninja gecko dilopho-raptor dragon.

What dinosaurs are the Jangmo-o evolution family based on?

Tropius looks like either Camarasaurus or Brachiosaurus

The Chikorita line looks like either Apatasaurus or Diplodocus.

What is Haxorus the Haxorus line based on?

Goodra I can't tell but it looks like it is a herbivore maybe even an omnivore.

Iguanodon Palkia is . . . perfect

Cranidos and Rampardos are obvious

Which ceratopsian is Shieldon and Bastiodon based on?

The Aron line was obvious

Archen and Archeops are obvious.

Love what you did with Kyurem white and Reshiram.

Dialga, Tropios, the Chikorita line- I just entered 'Sauropod' into Google pictures and took the best-looking ones. Guess I could have used Brachiosaurus for Tropios, can't remember. Auroros is the only of those guys I actually activly looked for the Amaragosaurus.

Groudon is large parts Giganotosaurus, though I altered him so he is more heavy-set.

The Magmar line and Breloom are related, by the way- their ancestor was Ramparados.

Same with the Aron line and Bastiodon. For this guy I went with simply Triceratops, but changed the neck frill. Guess there was Torosaurus in it?

Goodra and the Haxorus line are Plateosaurus.

You aren't the first to tell me that, but with Tyranitar's small head and armored body, it looked more like a Stegosaurus than any carnivorous saurian, actually. So I made him a Stegosaurus.

The Jangmo-o line are Therizinosaurus. Just...without the large claws.

Heh. Thanks for liking my Treecko line.

Reshiram was kind of obvious. Despite being a dragon, it also looks like a big chicken. Kind of.

:iconraptor92921:
raptor92921 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2018
Wouldn't the Archen line and Reshiram fit as both bird and dinosaur considering what you based them on? Just wondering out of curiosity.

For Breloom and Magmar line, that actually makes sense.

So Jangmo-o and its evos are Therizinosaurs. Those things were closer to T-rex and Velociraptor than they were to other carnivorous dinosaurs. We are talking herbivorous Theropods here.

Again, Ninja gecko dilopho-raptor dragons are awesome.

What about Gible line? Still reminds me of Carnotaurus though.
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2018
Well, Archeopteryx is to me more dinosaur than bird, so no reason to put them somewhere else. Birds don't have teeth or a long tail, so anything that has teeth and a long tail is to me a dinosaur.

Ah. Gible. Right. Forgot about it- and yes. It is a Carnotaurus.

Gonna cut you some slack on Plesiosaurs and Pterosaurs since those are not technically dinosaurs. Maybe Prehistoric would work?

I mentioned it, but they are always mentioned along with Dinosaurs- and most people don't know the difference anyways. If I went prehistoric, I'd have to add extinct mammals as well.

There a reason why Drampa is not a Dragon?
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2018
Yes- I'm categorizing 'Dragons' not as 'Dragon Type', but as appearance. Dragons are anything reptilian, amphibian, therapsidian or even avian that can not easily be placed among either category. So I went with 'At least six limbs with one pair having a different function than the others'- or simply by 'Big scaly and scary, must be a dragon'. To me, Drampa is anything but a dragon, more of a plesiosaurus. So it's here.

:iconraptor92921:
raptor92921 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2018
Remember that Western Dragons are the ones people think of when it comes to big scary dragon.

Eastern Dragons are a completely different beast from Western Dragons. The at least six limbs refers to Western Dragons.

But yeah, that explaination makes sense.

I love that you made Tapu Lele a bug which thematically she is.

:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2018
Well- her name says so, doesn't it? Lele means 'Butterfly', just that I actually used a Hawkmoth here. Eh, technalities.

If Scyther's a dino, why Scizor an actual praying mantis?
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2017
Because they aren't related in any way. Scizor can sometimes be seen hanging around Scyther packs, because they are clever enough to hunt alongside with them.

I've heard somewhere that Reshiram has design elements of raptors, so good choice including it with these other dinosaur Pokemon.
Reply

DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2017
Well, my Reshiram's more of an Archeopteryx (but it's pretty much the same). Mostly basing on :iconarvalis:'s design.

I think Palkia should be a dragon because he has wings and four legs so he could be a dragon just like Giratina
Personally I see tyranitar more like an allosaurus like dinosaur because he's based on a theropod dinosaur in the series
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2017
Yeah, well I drew Palkia as a dinosaur. Without wings- because unlike Giratina, I don't really see much 'wing' on Palkia's shoulders. It's more like a stiff appendage.

And I could have made Tyranitar a theropod, but then I realized how small its head is compared to its body, plus it doesn't have very impressive claws and is pretty heavy-set. So I made it a stegosaurus.
Tyranitar being a herbivor does not mean its harmless, though. Most of the big guys would rather get the fuck out than mess with this bad boy.

Groudon is part Megalosaurus- but honestly I just went kinda 'draw something with two legs and large jaws' on him.
Garchomp is actually a Carnotaurus.
