Morphs [Oak Catalog #]
- Luvdisc  Aquarius Cardium
Notable BiologyLuvdisc are rather small Pokemon. They are pink with no limbs at all with white cheeks. One of the most noticeable attributes about them, is that they are shaped like a heart. They are coated in Heart Scales which are coveted by collectors and certain trainers. Occasionally when faced with a predator, they will shed their scales to distract them as they make their escape. They can harness the power of the rain for their own purposes, such as increasing their speed when swimming, or heal certain injuries with the help of the rain. Because of their heart shape, it was associated with love, and it was customary for people to catch a Luvdisc in the Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh regions, and give them as a gift to their lovers, especially on Valentine's day. One myth that was associated with them, is that if any couple sees a school of Luvdisc, they will be blessed with eternal love. This has been proven false through various sources. They swim using the protrusions at their back, and fluttering along the sea.
HabitatThey mainly live in the ocean, living in the branches of Corsola and various reefs. Occasionally, they'll surface and briefly rest on top of the ocean.
DietThey are filter feeders, so feed off of various microbes in the ocean such as food particles. The also feed on algae and various kinds of seaweed.
HazardsLuvdisc are one of the few Pokemon that barely have any hazards associated with them, as they are peaceful Pokemon, and prefer to flee in the cases of conflict, but they will attempt to confuse their attackers if forced to. However, they do not mind a friendly battle and will gladly participate in them.
Courting and ChildrearingMating is done mainly in Spring, when it is raining. Even though they are peaceful, they are very competitive over mates. The mating ritual is done through a jumping competition. Luvdisc see who can jump the highest out of the water in order to attract mates. Once a Luvdisc is impressed by another Luvdisc's jumping ability, it will go over to that Luvdisc and kiss it. Once they kiss, they flutter like wings in the water, eventually releasing eggs and sperm. The fluttering forces the sperm and eggs to collide, fertilizing the eggs. Once the eggs hatch, the parents take care of the offspring until they are old enough to swim by themselves, which roughly takes about 6 weeks.
Social StructureLuvdisc typically travel in large schools. The colony generally travels together, especially in rainy weather. Though occasionally some Luvdisc will leave the group and form their own colony.
This is my first article. So what do you think? I know that some entries are lacking in information.
