oh, hey I noticed nobody has dibs on the Skitty line, so I knocked up an article for it, just because, actually mostly for the meme and a shitty Homestuck reference but hey.
Morphs [Oak Catalog #]
- Skitty 
- Delcatty 
Skitty is a small mammalian pokémon with short cream coloured fur on its belly and face, and slightly
longer pink fur on its back, it has very short stubby legs and its head is very large in proportion to
its body. The other notable feature is that the end of its tail is signifcantly thicker then the rest,
and is additionally covered with thick fur the same colour as that on its back.
When exposed to a Moon Stone, Skitty evolves into Delcatty, Delcatty is around twice as large as Skitty,
it is mostly covered with pale yellow fur, with purple-pink fur in a ruff around its neck, on the back
of its head, and a small tuft on the end of its tail, it is much more evenly proportioned then Skitty
without the stubby legs and oversized head it displayed in its first stage.
Certain mutants of this line have been seen, with bright yellow and orange-red fur in both forms, like
all such colour mutants these are highly prized by collectors.
Both members of this line prefer to live in lightly forested temperate areas, they are primarily
nocturnal and at their most active just after sunset.
Members of this line are opportunistic feeders, they scavenge meat wherever they can get it, and eat
berries otherwise, being naturally docile they do not hunt unless desperate.
Skitty and Delcatty are generally thought of as being harmless, cute Pokémon, and this is mostly true,
they are extremely non-confrontational and avoid conflict if at all possible, prefering to daze and
distract an attacker and then run away, however, like most Pokémon they can be dangerous in the right
circumstances, particularly in the case of a mother who feels her young are threatened. In these cases
they can deliver a painful strike with their tails causing welts and bruises, and on rare occasions,
Courting and Childrearing
Due to Delcatty's rarity in the wild, most breeding is done by Skitty, females go into heat twice a
year, unless they are currently caring for young, and will typically mate with any availible male during
the heat cycle, in the wild they generally reproduce ovovipariously, carrying the eggs (Skitty usually
have one or two at a time, whereas on the rare occasions they do breed in the wild Delcatty will have
two, three, or occasionally four offspring at a time) for around three months before they are ready to
hatch, and typically staying with the offspring for four to five months after they are born, Skitty
reach sexual maturity at around one year of age.
Oddly, [[Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action
Skitty and Delcatty are genetically compatible with a wise variety of
Pokémon,including the enormous Wailord]] , however actually attempting to breed the two is
and will probably just result in injury or death to your pokemon.
Members of this line are solitary, but not territorial, as they do not maintain a fixed den, but wander
from place to place looking for food.
In Human Culture
Being extremely cute, Skitty and Delcatty are very popular as pets, and among Contest enthusiasts, being
docile though they tend to be depicted in background supporting roles in the media rather then as
major characters, one of the more popular recent examples involves [[Homestuck
