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.
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
-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.
PLEASE NOTE: This is how I see the Pokemon. It is fine to be of different opinion, but please tolerate mine.
Bears and Weasels
Rodents and Rabbits
Spiders and other Arthropods
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.
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.
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.
Ah. Gible. Right. Forgot about it- and yes. It is a Carnotaurus.
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.
Personally I see tyranitar more like an allosaurus like dinosaur because he's based on a theropod dinosaur in the series
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.
