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.”Fish are the first Pokémon that have a spinal collumn. Having evolved from branchiostoma 550 million years ago, fish Pokémon are one of the most successful Pokémon category. They can also survive conditions that would kill other fishes, as most fish Pokémon not only have gills, but a secondary breathing system that allows them to survive on land. Many also have developed the ability to float freely through the air, as their swimming bladder is filled with a light gas mixture. They still require a humid enviroment and will flee into water if threatened.
December 8th, 2016: Updated the main file with newer art.
They now include: Tynamo, Eelektrik, Eelektross, Sharpedo, Mega Sharpedo, Mantyke, Mantine, Barboach, Whiscash, Carvanha, Basculin, Tapu Fini, Honedge, Doublade, Aegislash Sword, Aegislash Shield, Stunfisk, Relicanth, Magikarp, Gyarados, Mega Gyarados, Feebas, Milotic, Remoraid, Wishiwashi, Goldeen, Seaking, Vanilite, Vanilish, Vanilluxe, Luvdisc, Alomomola, Finneon, Lumineon, Qwilfish, Chingling, Chimecho, Bruxish, Chinchou, Lanturn, Huntail, Gorebyss, Corsola, Sandygast, Pallossand, Horsea, Seadra, Kingdra, Skrelp, Dragalge
-Tynamo and its family are not fish. Tynamo doesn't even have a skull, but it grows one as it matures. Eelektrik and Eelektross still don't have jaws though.
-Honedge and Doublade are closely related and it is not uncommon to see a swarm of Honedge uncluding Doublades. Doublade always hunts in pairs. Aegislash is related to them, but hunts solitary. In fact, it has a friendship with a flatfish-like Pokémon that protects Aegislash's eggs and is protected by the sword instead.
-Tapu Fini is the fastest fish Pokémon.
-Gyarados usually lives in rivers, lakes and near the coast. Mega Gyarados lives in the high seas and is a much faster swimmer.
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
Do these water types just levitate on land battles like in the games, or do they need to be submerged to work?
And are they still able to expel large amounts of water from their bodies?
Hm. most fish pokémon can not leviatate, unless they're proficiently telekinetically able. In this case, only the Honedge and the chingling Family can leviatate. All of the others are fish, and unless they're serpentine like Gyarados or Milotic, they can not or hardly move at land. They don't suffocate though, because fish Pokémon can take up enough oxygen through their mouths to survive, though they do dry out quickly.
And they can only expell as much water as they can store, like Qwilfish can spit a lot, while things like Gorebyss can only spray a little.
Great job though, they're very realistic looking!
But Pokémon are damn scary if you think about it. But staying out of the water won't do you any good either- four words: Sand Shark Jet Dragon
Vanillite can be found in arctic waters, fresh and sea water alike. They can not float (not like the original Pokémon) and develop eye spots on their bodies. Males grow larger and have more eye spots. If threatened, they immediately will flipp face-down and present the foe the fake face to scare them off.
Relicanth is related to the Coelocanth. Only, unlike the still living Coelocanth, they are mainly found in pitch-black darkness like the deep sea or undersea caves. That is why they no longer have eyes- they simply don't need them. During the night they may come up to the surface. They eat clams, starfish and urchins, all things they need a strong jaw for.
Gyarados doesn't rage. It's just an apex predator. It appears, it feeds, and it vanishes again. Only because it can breathe air and is more intelligent than a normal fish, Gyrados causes much more destruction. Plus they don't really like other Gyarados close-by (except for mating), so they will fight each other tooth and nail. But they aren't angry.
By the way, Normal Gyarados can be normally found in fresh water, where its eel-like body allows it to cross large distances on land, and Mega Gyarados lives in the open sea, its shorter body is more stiff and allows for a greater speed.
Commercial industry does not exist in the Pokémonworld like it does in ours. They had to arrange themselves with the Pokémon that exist.
