Been wanting to reveal these guys for a while now, was nearly gonna upload this with my water-type Pokes, but thought I'd better stifle it out a bit. 70% of Juore is giant desert, so this is naturally only about half of the Pokes found there, but boy are they some of my favourites!!
One-by-one, of course Sandile was going to be found in Juore: deserts and crocs put together (that's what an Australian region is all about!). Zagidna was one of my old and outdated Fakemon from way back when, but one of my absolute favourites! Camyptian as an Egyptian camel surely has been done somewhere by someone before, but I really needed it in there to represent all the wild dromedary camels roaming around the Australian outback. Woenna and Bluliqua are two lizard pokes based off Oz's goannas and blue-tongued lizards, respectively, and I'm really happy with how both of them turned out. Bluliqua in particular, went through several (completely different looking!) redesigns, and it's quickly become one of my favs with it's current look. Lastly, Slabaint and Wandajin are very important as they are based off the Australian Aboriginal culture. Slabaint representing Dot Paintings and Wandajin the depiction on caves of spirits from millennia ago. Both of them have the Levitate ability, nullifying their weakness to Ground-types, and thus able to thrive in the desert.SANDILE: The Desert Croc Poke'mon.
It moves along under the sand's surface leaving only its nose and eyes exposed. The dark membrane around its eyes protect them from the sun's heat.ZAGIDNA: The Poison Coat Poke'mon.
They are prolific diggers, and use their sharp claws to break through almost any terrain surface. It curls into a spiny and poisonous ball as its best means of protection.CAMYPTIAN: The Camel Poke'mon.
They have soft-padded feet so they don't disturb sand dunes. They only need to drink water once every 10-15 days.SLABAINT: The Rock Mural Poke'mon.
There is a withstanding rumour that all Slabaint originated from the same large mural, and are all just broken and chipped pieces of one big picture.BLULIQUA: The Rock Lizard Poke'mon.
Their tongue is considered a warning bluff. It has naturally adhesive glands that can only be dissolved by Bluliqua's saliva. So if you annoy one, you might get it stuck to you.WANDAJIN: The Cloud Spirit Poke'mon.
They are commonly found floating through the sky in large groups after a desert thunderstorm or heavy rain. No one is sure where they go during hot weather.WOENNA: The Goanna Poke'mon.
It scavenges for dead meat, so its bite is very toxic from the bacteria in its teeth. The veins running down its body pump adrenaline into its heart.
