Leifish
Faux Leaf Pokémon
Type: Water
Ability: Protean
- Leifish are often mistaken for a dropped leaf, floating in the current. The growth on their snout is incredibly sensitive to water quality.

Deekoi
Luring Pokémon
Type: Water/Ground
Ability: Protean
- Deekoi wave their specially designed dorsal fin above them. This lure like fin resembles their formal Leifish. One that gets too close may get eaten by this Pokémon.

Leifish >Lv32> Deekoi

Magnifying Glass Cool. Leaf-shaped fish Pokemon. The idea of fish shaped like leaves sounds awesome. Do they often reside in flooded mangrove swamps?

It's kind of ironic how despite resembling leaves, they are weak to Grass! (Also, they are actually based on real things. www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk… )

Really love this idea, but just a quick question: Wouldn't the whole ''camouflaging into a dead leaf'' be because you don't want to be eaten? And when they evolve, wich is possible because they weren't eaten, they all the sudden have to survive by the assumption that pokemon eat dead leaves.

What if when leifish evolves, it's body becomes a big blob, it's (former) snout becomes a stalk, and it's (former) body becomes the decoy?

My Arceus, I love these Pokémon. Deekoi's name is HILARIOUSLY CLEVER, the typing is solid, the ability is fantastic, and the overall design is just great, like a cross between a Stunfisk and a Gobul.

That's ridonculously clever. The final form having a lure that's it's first form. Kind of like my Vish and Sdream line! I kinda wanna draw 'em together now...
