Insect Pokemon by DragonlordRynn Insect 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.”

Invertebrate Pokémon: Insects. The largest group, and for bugs, have a surprisingly high intellect.

Okay, here you have: Celebi, Paras, Parasect, Nincada, Ninjask, Shedenja, Lunatone, Bergmite, Carbink, Diancie, Mega Diancie, Megaerna, Surskit, Masquerain, Scizzor, Mega Scizzor, Formantis, Lurantis, Bonsley, Sudoowoodo, Buzzwole, Klefki, Venipede, Whirlipede, Scolipede, 
Tsareena, Kricketot, Kricketune, Yanma, Yanmega, Sewaddle, Swadloon, Leavanny, Caterpie, Metapod, Butterfree, Wurmple, Silcoon, Cascoon, Beautifly, Dustox, Venonat, Venomoth, Larvesta, Volcarona, Spewpa, Scatterbug, Vivillon, Burmy, Wormadam, Mothim, Kartana, Tapu Lele, Cutiefly, Ribombee, Gligar, Gliscor, Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Mega Beedrill, Combee, Vespiqueen, Durant, Snorunt, Glalie, Mega Glalie, Froslass, Ledyba, Ledian, Illumise, Volbeat, Heracross, Mega Heracross, Pinsir, Mega Pinsir, Grubbin, Charjabug, Vikavolt, Karrablast, Escavalier, Pheromosa


Notes:
-Cutiefly and Ribombee are not the same. Cutiefly is related to flies, Ribombee is related to Hawkmoths. They look similar enough that there was a connection suspected, though.
-Dustox Wurmple hatch earlier in the year. As they are venomous, predators won't eat them, so the Beautifly Wurmple that hatch later in the year can profit of predators believing them to be poisonous- which they are not.
-Genesect was the result of some drunken scientists pasting a cannon on the back of a giant cockroach.
-Karbink is a Termite-like Pokémon. There is only one known colony of them, and they not only eat organic substances, but can also convert rocks. Their Queen is called Mega Diancie. The normal Diancie is some sort of Princess.
-Magearna is an artificial Pokémon that has been build in the likeness of Diancie.
-Snorunt has a strange alternation of generations. Snorunt is the small male, Glalie the female. From their eggs hatch only Froslass, which are hermaphroditic and lay eggs from which Snorunt and Glalie hatch.

"-Genesect was the result of some drunken scientists pasting a cannon on the back of a giant cockroach." When I saw the words 'drunken scientists' my mind went right towards this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=avYBui…

How else would they have thought that this was a good idea? You literally just need to flip a light switch and that thing scuttles off.

If Scizor is an insect, why scyther a Dino? I forgot why because they are related to each other,
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2018
In my world, they aren't. Scizor is a large mantis, smart enough to work with the dinosaurian Scythers. Because they live together, some people thought they were related.

Oooh, I loved how you pictured the snorut breeding alternation, now I wonder if a mega glalie is something like an "alpha female" or just a variation through seasons. 
Reply
:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2018
Nah. Mega Glalie is the female during breeding. Too big to move, so she has to look super scary. Snorunt are the males, by the way, and their children are Froslass. And from Froslass comes the next generation of Snorunt and Glalie

Yeah, I got how the whole diferent generetion goes on, is just the mega glalie that got me confuse, for them not beeing mentioned at all on the description.

No, look closer, Mega Glalie is there. Just behind Glalie.

Sorry, I meant on the notes. The note about the snorut and gallie reprodution said nothing about mega glalie.

"Snorunt has a strange alternation of generations. Snorunt is the small male, Glalie the female. From their eggs hatch only Froslass, which are hermaphroditic and lay eggs from which Snorunt and Glalie hatch."

Any reason why Skorupi and Drapion Dragonfly Mantis things and not Scorpions which would go with Spiders and other Arthopods?

Facepalming, facepalming hard.

Those are Gligar and Gliscor. I saw the two pointy parts on the tails and thought they were Skorupi and Drapion.

Well, Skorupi and Drapion are with the spiders. Gligar and Gliscor- I've tried doing them as winged Skorpions. Didn't work out. Drew them as these bastards: bugguide.net/images/cache/VQL/…

Where’s Scyther?
It’s clearly not a dinosaur.
The three look too similar to me to be split into different species.

:icondragonlordrynn:
DragonlordRynn Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2018
Well, surprise- I don't see Scyther as a bug. I tried doing it as Mantis, and it just didn't work.

So I put it under Dinosaurs. Scizzor on the other hand, looks more bug-like than Scyther. So it is a bug (they ain't related though). Scizzor can however be found along with Scyther packs.

I’ve seen lots of mantis Scythers that look great.

Or Scizor dinosaurs. Lol

Just armor plated Scythers.

I’ve also seen crab-like Scizors which look weird. Lol

That would have been possible too, but Buzzwole's body is too sturdy and too muscular for a lanky mosquito. I made an assassin bug with mantis claws.

I always thought that a realistic version of Stakataka (Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon) would be made of ants, as some species of ants do form clusters that turn into coherent structures when under certain circumstances. Penny for your thoughts?

Does Mimikyu still have eye holes somewhere in its costume; if not, how does it know where its going?

It is a squid. It usually only 'sees' where it is going by touching things with its tentacles. Plus the cloth is pretty thin, so it can look through it outside.
