An ancient predator of coastal cliffs, Sturmjaegr are known to hunt from the air. They are known for their extraordinary aerial control, capable of easily maintaining flight in powerful sea storms.evolves from fav.me/dw8k9b at level 85 with use of a water stone. Fluidon must have never held an everstone.
Sturmjaegr is an old idea I had to give all my starters a hidden dragon evolution, since they were all dinosaurs. This was basically my own version of a Mega evolution, before Mega evolutions were a thing. I kept putting off drawing these forms until Mega evolution came about, at which point I simply decided to abandon the concept altogether. Recently I decided to just go for it anyway. I always liked the idea, and while similar to Mega evolution, I feel like it is still unique.
Known as an Ascended evolution, it is far more powerful than the normal evolutionary line, and unlike a Mega evolution, it is permanent. By keeping Fluidon from evolving at the time it normally would, it builds up evolutionary power within it's low energy body. If held back until level 85, a water stone will trigger an Ascended evolution. If held beyond 85 however, the evolutionary energy within Fluidon becomes too much and permanently cripples the body, similar to blowing out an over inflated tire. Everstones cannot be used, as they do not hold the energy back but rather suppress it altogether in the case of preparing for an Ascended evolution. If an Everstone is used, or Fluidon surpasses level 85, it will still be able to evolve into it's standard evolutionary line.
Sturmjaegr's design is based on a wyvern, a european dragon archetype typically depicted with wings instead of forelegs. (technically they're often considered related to dragons and not themselves dragons, but whatever.)
Name is a combination of sturm (german for storm) and a corruption of Jaeger (german for hunter).
