Absol - #359 of the National Pokedex
Every time Absol appears before people, it is followed by a disaster such as an earthquake or a tidal wave. As a result, it came to be known as the disaster Pokémon.
Absol has the ability to foretell the coming of natural disasters. It lives in a harsh, rugged mountain environment. This Pokémon very rarely ventures down from the mountains.
It sharply senses even subtle changes in the sky and the land to predict natural disasters. It is a long-lived Pokémon that has a life-span of 100 years.
-from the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald Pokedex


Absolomon - Champion Level / Virus / Doomsayer Type

With his all-seeing eye, Absolomon travels the digital world in solitude, warning those in imminent danger. However, his renown for predicting disasters has led some to fear or even attempt to forbid his arrival, at one time going as far as to imprison him deep within a dungeon. When that civilization was wiped out by a cataclysm lost to the history books, Absolomon continued his pilgrimage.
His extra-sensory abilities give him an edge in combat, letting him plan a counterattack far in advance of the enemy's first move. He abhors conflict, but if pushed far enough, he will put his scythe, Judgement, to good use, cleaving the victim in two with his Final Penance attack. A split decision, indeed.

~~~~~~

A change of pace here from predominant comic pages; decided to throw my hat into the ring with this Pokemon-to-Digimon meme that I've seen around, courtesy of :icong-fauxpokemon:

Absol's one of my favorite pokemon of all time, and seemed to have the most going for him in terms of turning him into a digimon. The name "Absolomon" is actually the result of recalling Solomon, biblical king most famous for nearly chopping a kid in half, just minutes before I started uploading this. Apparently the good king was a bit of a prophet himself, so this all just seems destined to work together.

I favorited this a long time ago, but felt like commenting now...  just like to say that I like the way you made few but significant changes. I'd just keep his head more animal-like. It's pretty cool, anyway.

I absolutely LOVE this! You really understands digimon!

Most people thought that Pokemon and Digimon are similar in the regard that both take ordinary animals then add fantastical twists to them. They are dead WRONG! While the above statement applies to Pokemon, it doesn't really to Digimon, because Digimon don't usually use ordinary animals but real beliefs and myths.

Such as...
Garudamon -> Garuda of Hindu and Buddhist mythology
Darcmon -> Jeanne d'Arc
Angemon-species -> Christian beliefs
Digimon Sovereigns -> Chinese myth of the Four Symbols

Dude...this is one, if not THE best Poke'mon - Digimon I've ever seen! I love how you ran with Absol's poke'dex description, as well as the appearance, and I am digging that single eye on the helmet...thing. Great work.

I think it would be a bit much, and probably would just incite the wrath of the "pokemon are starting to look too much like digimon!!" crowd. : p

Of course, now that Absol -has- a Mega form, that certainly gives me a resource for a further evolution line of this Digimon version...
