Here's another new Pokemon from Pokemon Sword and Shield: Flapple! I really love the concept that it can fold in on itself in order to disguise themselves as apples. I played with a few concept with how to create his eyes, so I decided on a crab look. I figured it would look cute seeing these long eyes poke out from their apple camouflage.

For those of you who don't know, my two anatomy books "An Atlas of Dinosaur Anatomy" and "An Atlas of Prehistoric Animal Anatomy" are up for sale! If you like my studies like this one then you will love my books! Both come with many animals and several that will ONLY be found in my books! There's also a special Evolution of Baleen Whales in my Prehistoric Animal Anatomy book, you will not find this study anywhere else! Feel free to ask me questions. I will be selling them at Amazon and Barns and Noble soon, I'm going through the whole process and I will post links as soon as they're approved! You can buy them now from Lulu at these links:

An Atlas of Dinosaur Anatomy

An Atlas of Prehistoric Animal Anatomy

Buy my books as PDFs!

This is one of my new favorite Pokémon. Love how one move is just an apple falling on the opponent heads lol

Do they blink? 

or do they lick their eyes like Geckos?

basing the eyes off a crab is a really creative idea, i would have never consider that option, it'd look so bizarre on an invertebrate but you made it look natural i suppose
