I'm with the both of them on this. By those rules you might as well put impalas and onagers together due to having similar coloration.

So I colored up That Rayquaza image from earlier. Any more feedback or anything? I'm not sure if it's done yet, and since it's going to be a lot smaller for the actual article, I want to make sure the big version is up to bat before I shrink it.
This is gonna take a while.

Never said it had to be, that was my mistake like two pages ago on inverting the description I wanted based on the traits ("snakelike insect" instead of"insectlike snake"); but then again, I don't see how one thing has to exclude the other. It flies, it can learn Hex and Ancient Power; it could have perfectly had a recent insect ancestor or something. Unless we're assigning it cryptid-value in-universe...

[up] If you're going to shrink it for wiki view, the sword is gonna be hard to distinguish in its current position, in m opinion. Also, didn't expect the fire, looks pretty cool... The imagery is now reminding me of Jean d'Arc instead of Sird, and it looks quite... monasterial at this point.

Even though the insect aspects probably shouldn't be ignored, classifying Dunsparce as an insect and ignoring the snake aspects which clearly overshadow the insect ones is a bit ignorant.

A possible idea for Dunsparce: Perhaps Dunsparce's ancestry is simply a debate? There are clearly multiple viewpoints, and I can always include them all in the article as competing theories?

And here's what I've done today for the Horsea Line.

Morphs The Horsea Line consists of three morphs: Horsea, Seadra and Kingdra. Each one of these three is a seahorse like pokemon and, despite their appearance are generally quite fast and are reasonably powerful as well.

Notable Biology All three of these pokemon are seahorse like each one progressively stronger and slightly larger then the last line. Despite their appearance, these pokemon are favoured by dragon tamers including (That One Boss link to go here) The Blackthorn City Gym leader Clair. They all also have the ability to shoot high pressure out of their snout and all have extremely accurate eyesight which lets them hit targets accurately from long ranges and makes their lucky hits do tremendous damage. As stated above, each one of these pokemon are very fast despite their appearance and enjoy swimming against the current, sometimes even going straight up waterfalls and rapids. Strangely, Horsea gains poisonous quills on evolution to Seadra, and loses this upon its final evolution. In some circles, Kingdra and by extension, the rest of the family have been considered on par with some pokemon such as Metagross, Tyranitar, Dragonite, Salamance and Garchomp. This is due in part to their thick, tough hide which is a hard as steel and laden with a thick layer of special compounds that help it resist hits other than physical attacks.

Habitat Horsea and Seadra live primarily in the oceans. While not nearly as common as tentacool, they often appear as unwanted catch by fishermen. Due to this, the Pokemon Protection Agency has taken an interest in these pokemon and placed restrictions on trainers to capture them.

Diet Due to their small size, Horsea primarily eat plankton and other very small creatures. Seadra, being larger, have the same type of diet; however they can also attack and kill slightly larger prey due to their poison and their larger size.

Courting Mating is possible in the Seadra stages of evolution, though it’s not unheard of for old Horsea to undergo mating as well. Kingdra mating hasn’t been observed in the wild due to their habitat and the fact that they rarely awaken due to their tremendous power. Seadra mate by swimming up to very hard to reach places, normally up a waterfall and lay their eggs in long strands, wrapped around coral fragments, rock outcroppings and any other place that juts outward. The adults then leave the area, trusting that the difficult nature of the outcropping will be sufficient for defence. Strangely, Seadra always go to the place they were born much like some species of trout, leading to generations of Horsea being spawned from a single area. One of these places is the Whirl Islands in the Johto Region.

Hazard

Due to their ability to create a blinding smokescreen, all three of the morphs can create a thick fog allowing them to escape. This is Horsea’s only line of defence. Seadras have also been known to fill their rear quills with poison so touching them can sometimes spell disaster and poison other trainers and pokemon. As such, it is important to teach your Seadra restraint in using its poison. Kingdra meanwhile are far stronger then either of the previous two evolutions. Their final evolution has power enough to create whirlpools at will and deliver crushing blows to the opponent. Thankfully though, these morphs are very rare in the wild and almost impossible to find due to their habitat at the abyssal plain.

Social structure

Generally, these creatures are solitary, spending their time apart except to mate. Kingdra in particular spends a lot of time away from others

Erm, for one thing, you might want to use the wiki markup for that.

Not sure how to do that and not in the right mind to do that. I'm kinda on pain killers right now due to surgery.

Since the Litwick line was supposed to be a collab article and not separate, I've taken it upon myself to merge the two together. I did not make any additions to the articles. This is mainly to see what needs work, as some sections are still lacking.

Litwick Line

Morphs [Oak Catalog #]

  • Litwick [607]
  • Lampent [608]
  • Chandelure [609]

Litwick (scientific name Umbra lucis) is a short, half-melted candle with yellow eyes. Despite no presence of a wick, its flame burns with a flickering purple light and consumes energy, emotions, and other sensations from living things near it. Although Litwick have mouths, none have ever been observed using it, so it may be purely decorational. Like other ghost Pokemon, Litwick is capable of manipulating its body, and can be found in many different shapes.

Lampent (scientific name Umbra lampas) disguises itself as an old-fashioned lamp to remain unnoticed by its prey. Lampent’s glassy face shields its inner fire from being extinguished, and a small vent in the cover over its head provides it with air. The ghostly arms extending from Lampent’s body allow it to hold itself on objects, leading some communities to employ tame Lampent to act as streetlights.

Chandelure (scientific name Umbra lucerna) is a medium size chandelier-shaped Pokemon with an appearance similar to Lampent. After evolving, Chandelure retains its globe-shaped glass head, but the covering above it is gone, leaving its flame to rise freely into the air. From the bottom of the globe extends two metallic bands, which curve upwards to about the level of Chandelure’s eyes. From each of these grows two candle holders, from which Chandelure releases flames for offense and protection.

Notable Biology

Litwick’s body appears to be made entirely from wax, although nothing can get close enough to examine it properly without being rendered unconscious from energy loss. However, x-ray equipment is able to take images of Litwick’s body, which seem to show that it does have some form of internal organs made out of some waxy substance. Despite being seen to come into contact with solid surfaces, Litwick have occasionally been sighted floating through walls, which suggests that like other Ghost-type Pokemon, Litwick has some control over its molecules, so it is at least partially formed of umbrate.

The Litwick line is notable in being one of the few known carbon-based life forms to have their cellular structure be primarily ester-sterol rather than the lipid based structure of most beings; this is hypothesized to be the result of the evolution of a Proto-Epilobia like creature within a pool of high wax content. Akin to the modern development of the Grimer. One of the most notable aspects of the line is that they are psychiphagic, while the Litwick may inject the occasional raw minerals, the primary chemical reaction that drives its biology must be fueled by a constant complex electric current, such as those found in the brains of most life forms.

Litwick exist as a massive non-lipid germinal epithelium to power there metabolism, in which the breakdown local minerals to form a buildup of ore with their bodies in a long internal “wick” with which they digest the ambient electromagnetism of various creatures. In this young age the metabolism is quite advanced, as a result most of their prey remains in a comatose state, leading to legends of them as a soul-stealer. The waste product of this metabolism, as constant purple-blue flame is one of the hallmarks of the line and its glow has been adapted by years of evolution as a lure and a weapon. When significant amounts of ore have developed within central spire, a Litwick will process hem into large external shell, made of organic glass, which holds the reaming ester-sterol cells which now have been reduced to a single digestive track. From the central silicate head an organic metal system of capillaries flows outward, allowing better manipulation of the internal flame. At this stage the metabolism is significantly lesser, and, due to their more brittle state, they become scavengers, consuming the electricity from the brains of dead life forms as they fail.

Habitat

Litwick frequently live in places with swamps and other dangers into which to lure their prey or in graveyards with high amounts of residual life energy. Lampent live in similar areas, but also can be found in cities trailing after potential targets or attempting to lure passers into traffic or other dangers.

Diet

The line is exclusively Psychiphagous in the early stages of its life, using the neurological energy of other life forms to feed it’s eternal combustion, a necessary feature for its unique structure. Juveniles, in the highest phase of growth, often leach energy from other species to the point of permanent brain death, after it evolution when it’s structure is more conservative and more efficient, it tends to only feed on the ambient off put of recently dead life forms.

Although it has a mouth, Litwick does not actually eat physical food. Instead, it absorbs energy and emotions from living creatures nearby. In addition, Litwick uses its light to lure people and wild Pokemon to death in order to absorb the energy of the dying soul. As a result, Litwick are frequently found in swampy areas, although they are also occasionally sighted hovering over open manholes in cities.

Like Litwick, Lampent absorbs energy from the living. It also follows those who are about to die, being able to absorb energy from them more easily than healthy individuals. Because of this, Lampent often hang onto buildings pretending to be lamps in order to more easily find prey.

Because Chandelure are rarely sighted in the wild, there have been few opportunities to examine them. Based on the behavior of the occasional ones that have been seen, Chandelure appear to have a diet similar to Litwick and Lampent. However, most Chandelure are capable of draining far more energy. If any living thing becomes immersed one's central flame, almost all of its life force will be transferred to the Chandelure, leaving a barely animate and intelligence lacking body behind. This has lead to many stories of creatures called 'zombies' attacking.

Behavior

Litwick is known for its habit of leading lost people into dangerous and often deadly situations by imitating human lighting in areas that are not safe for humans. It is commonly theorized that this behavior is due to Litwick not being mature enough to drain enough energy for survival from a living host, and thus attempts to cause deaths for it to feed upon. This may also have led to legends of Litwick leading dead souls to the afterlife, although it is more likely that Litwick actually absorbs the dead souls instead.

Upon evolving into Lampent, it appears to gain the ability to sense when death is about to occur. It will often follow a person whose death it senses is near, siphoning off small volumes of energy from the target until their death. If a Lampent is following you for no apparent reason, don’t panic, but remain alert and seek medical assistance. This trickery has led to widespread mistrust of this Pokemon and many superstitions linking it and misfortune. However, in some cultures Trainers who own a Lampent are considered lucky, as they can save trainers that they like from accidents; but it is a bad idea for trainers to mistreat Lampent as they may intentionally lead those they hate into harm.

Hazards

As the line is inherently Psychiphagous, be sure to ward your Litwick off from feeding on members of you party. Overfeeding is the number one causes of death around Litwick and, it is suggested that Trainers use radio-based Artificial Soul Substitute instead; foraging for natural silicates is encouraged however. Once developed into the median stage, your Pokémon may feed on ambient life energy from you and your party members, as by this stage substance is natural. Be wary of the flames, as, like other Ever burn Pokémon they are quite hot, and are tied directly to your Pokémon’s internal biology, and thus cannot be snuffed.

Courting and Childrearing

All members are capable of reproduction, although this is more common with the Juvenile stage, due to their larger amounts of fat and energy. After morphs of the line release a spermatozoon glob of wax, it is ingested by the female until process, there, it merges with her ambient ova cells, and an egg is devolved within the female out of her natural occurring silicate. Interbreeding with other species is rare but possible. In the wild this does not occur, as the species only coterminous is incompatible to its Egg Group (and possibility the planet). In captivity, they often enjoy mating with other indeterminate group members, mostly by the inserting of their Spermatozoon wax into the protoplasm of the various mates (or vice-versa)

Litwick is sexually mature from birth, although it does not use organs to reproduce. Instead, baby Litwick are produced when molten wax from a male Litwick comes into contact with a female Litwick. The wax from the male Litwick melts and mixes with some of the wax on the female, and slowly develops into a small Litwick. The baby then remains attached to the female until it is strong enough to absorb energy, after which it detaches and goes on its own way. This method of reproduction generally occurs only where Litwick are swarming, as swarms tend to appear in areas with high amounts of residual life energy, such as graveyards, where infants have a higher chance of survival.

Lampent does not usually reproduce, as they channel their energy towards growing and finding a Dusk Stone to evolve. On the rare occasions when Lampent do reproduce, they do so in a manner similar to Litwick.

Unlike its previous evolutions, Chandelure reproduces asexually. After it consumes enough energy, the flames on its arms may bifurcate. Each flame forms a new Litwick. The Litwick then remains attached to the Chandelure until it can absorb energy, after which it detaches from its parent and lives separately.

Social Structure

Litwick are solitary in the wild, as there feeding requires them to nurse on local Pokémon, contact outside of breeding usually leads to death. They have found a good hunting ground in the local Elgyem population as there significant Psyche energy provides quite a feast.

So we've been talking about G2 buffing, and it has come to our attention that we are still in need of formally getting a go-ahead to collabify Chikorita's, Cyndaquil's, and Totodile's articles. Would you two be up for going through with this, Sullen Frog and Locoman?
