^^ Eh it's close enough to NYC for us to say that it is. Though it's probably going to have some foreign influences pop up here and there (Just like how we had hints of France in Hokkaido)...

IMHO, I think that we should hold off on Gen V articles until, you know, the games are actually out...

Caught up on the index, but still busy. PM me about Bulbasaur Saturday, eh? I respond well to nagging. (Include those)

Isshu that we've seen (which appears to be most of it) looks like just the New York/Jersey region. We can assume that somewhere they have a Yellowstone analogue (they have a Hollywood, after all)(what kind of weather effect is sulfur?), but it's likely not under Isshu's jurisdiction.

I'm open for reopening the Pokéwalker at some point; maybe a consensus could be reached this time.

I just got word from a latam artist willing to provide artwork for the Hoothoot entry some time soon. No word on the Nidos yet and I'm kind of given up on Lileep. But then I don't really think all the entries need artwork. Now if you excuse me there is a jar at my side that I really want to stare at, it contains the last honey before next month's resupply and I want to hold it in my grasp against anyone else in my family. Which brings to me that we haven't done Teddiursa yet and there are a lot of things that can come up from that entry.

Entei

Morphs [Oak Catalog #]

  • Entei [#244]

Physical Descriptions

Entei is a large quadrupedal Pokémon with a mixture of canine and feline characteristics. It is large and muscular, standing nearly seven feet tall. Its fur is thick and brown, its underbelly and muzzle are a lighter tan, its paws are dull gray, and black cuffs adorn each leg at the ankle. Its face is covered with a colorful plated mask of red and yellow that resembles a feudal helmet, and a gray mustache-like plate guards its nose. It has a long, dull gray mane that rests lightly on its back like a loose cloud of smoke and extends all the way backward into its tail, and its back is ringed by an array of gray, spiky plates that extend to either side and appear to have the texture of smooth stone. Its eyes, like the other Johto Beasts', are bright red.

It is widely believed that only one Entei exists, and it implies credence to this during its encounters with humans. Its gender is unknown, or indeed if gender is even applicable to it, though its psychic voice is distinctly masculine and it seems to be okay with being conventionally referred to as male.

Lore and History

The most well-known legend concerning Entei is that of the destruction of Tin Tower (see Ho-oh: Lore and History). After the tower burned down, Ho-oh took pity on three Pokémon that perished in the collapse and resurrected them as the Legendary Beasts of Johto. One of them became Entei, an embodiment of the fire that consumed the tower, charged to keep its blaze in check across the land (Entei's observed actions are actually more closely targeted to volcanoes than fire in general; see later). Though Ho-oh's ability to resurrect a dead Pokémon is in question, skeptics admit that no evidence, legend, or sighting accounts of Entei date further back than 500 years when the tower's collapse was recorded by Ecruteak scribes.

Entei's sightings near erupting volcanoes have spawned two main myths. The first legend claims that an Entei is born every time a volcano erupts. This is generally believed untrue, as plenty of volcanoes have erupted in recent history and sightings have not dramatically increased. Thus far, Entei's confirmed sightings have been consistent with a single entity, albeit a very fast one with an outstanding travel plan.

The second legend swaps the cause and effect of the above, that Entei's roar incites volcanoes to erupt in the first place. Entei's observed abilities do include causing localized geothermal fractures, and it often roars while doing so. However, travelers have certainly witnessed Entei roar without being incinerated by a spontaneous torrent of magma. While it is possible that Entei may use the sound wave to cause its Eruptions, it is much more likely that the roar is unrelated and Entei merely has a taste for theatrics.

Unlike its siblings, Entei's telepathic communication was never really in question. Entei broadcasts psychic warnings to towns and villages near volcanoes prior to eruption. Psychic-types will occasionally intercept a broadcast message from Entei requesting a method of sea travel, though the signal is notoriously difficult to trace. Entei pings these broadcasts across an elaborate relay of Slowpoke (who are too vacant to give it away to anyone) to obscure its exact position, not unlike a series of living proxy servers. Additionally, retired private sailors have reported conversing with Entei upon finding it stowing away on their craft, some on repeated occasions. Its psychic voice is described as a deep, smooth, and clear baritone with a slight northern-Johto accent.

Known Sightings

Entei is often seen near or atop volcanoes shortly before and during eruption. Entei is the only one of the Johto Legendary Beasts to make regular trips out of the region around the world to visit volcanoes. It is unusual in that despite its strong connection to fire and magma, it is most often sighted far at sea — either stowing away on commercial ships, riding atop a Wailord or Gyarados with a full vanguard at the flanks, or at island villages in remote archipelagoes as a herald of an impending eruption.

Entei also differs from the other Beasts in its general demeanor. While its siblings are skittish around humans and do not stay around when discovered, Entei is not shy about making an appearance so long as it is on its own terms. Entei will stroll coolly through an island village, projecting a psychic warning to evacuate the area if it does not garner a large enough crowd by its sheer presence for word of mouth to travel sufficiently. This is always followed by its iconic display of sitting atop a volcano, roaring into the sky as it erupts. This is not to say Entei is never caught off guard; sailors who discover the Legendary among their cargo are often greeted with a bemused chuckle and pleasant, if reserved company in exchange for keeping to secrecy for a few months while its trail cools.

Despite Entei's social tendencies, it remains quite elusive. Like the other Johto Beasts, it is incredibly fast. Entei can lose pursuers in nearly any dense underbrush, and can mask its heat signature. Thermal imaging has revealed that it uses a blast of heat to give itself an updraft while leaping, and can achieve staggering jump distance this way. It commands a great deal of respect from wild Pokémon, who will usually leap to its aid en masse for transit, defense, and diversions, and the humans it approaches usually respect its request for temporary silence. Additionally, its frequent association with sailors lead many to falsely claim a sighting, which in turn throws off pursuers even more. In effect, Entei's greatest evasive strength is its own charisma and social connections.

Entei was present during the Snagem/Cipher incident in Orre. Though the details have been kept classified, it is speculated that Entei and the other Beasts were captured by the criminal organization. Entei appears to be considerably less spooked over it than the other Beasts have been ever since, and continues to approach humans, though sailors that have encountered it before report that Entei is more cautious, less conversational, and keeps its distance when possible.

The recent incident at Dr. Spencer Hale's mansion was first thought to have involved Entei, filmed abducting a woman and carrying her into a nearby crystal wasteland. Though the exact details have been kept classified, local officials have stated on the record that Entei was not responsible; the culprit was a psychic avatar of a different entity altogether that merely took the Legendary's shape. The real Entei was later confirmed to have been at a remote atoll that very morning, three thousand miles away.

Diet (if any)

Entei has never been observed eating anything in the conventional manner, or if it requires food at all. Sailors report no theft of supplies during stowaway episodes.

Abilities

Entei is an extremely powerful Fire-type Pokémon, and has been observed to employ explosive flak and Fire Blasts powerful enough to rival battleship artillery. Even when attacked in the confines of a ship at sea, Entei is skilled enough in close combat to incapacitate most opponents without severely damaging the surrounding hull. It can surprise opponents with a type advantage with Solarbeam, has been observed to use Extrasensory and Stone Edge as tertiary techniques, and has even caught other Fire-types off guard by manipulating geothermal conditions to create a geyser.

Entei's methods of geothermal manipulation are unknown. It can sense an impending eruption from across the world. Entei can target and trigger the spontaneous bursting of key stress points in underground magma chambers to generate a Lava Plume or Eruption from anywhere on the ground. It uses this ability to bleed off geothermal pressure, and prevent or mitigate the eruption of a volcano. Though its iconic eruptions are impressive, it should be noted that the majority of the debris and lava is directed away from local settlements, and the eruption is a good deal smaller than it would have been otherwise.

In addition, Entei carries a great deal of status among wild Pokémon, and captive Psychic-types explain that assisting Entei is considered a great honor. Its requests for sea travel rarely go unanswered without a mount and full escort, and if it loses the upper hand at sea it will send a psychic SOS to all nearby Pokémon. One infamously ill-fated pirate boarding of a commercial fishing vessel resulted in not only being confronted with the stowaway Entei itself, but several Gyarados and Tentacruel, a flock of Fearow, and Kyogre who happened to be in the vicinity. Needless to say, the attackers were swiftly stopped.

Hazards

Entei, like all Legendaries, is exceedingly powerful, on the approximate level of the A-teams of some of the most powerful Gym Leaders in Johto. Its very appearance in the vicinity of a volcano heralds an eruption, and is itself a warning to vacate the area.

Given that its abilities include spontaneously creating lava flows far from geothermal faults, it should be readily apparent how foolish it is to attack such a creature or force it to fight with Mean Look. When ambushed at sea, not only is Entei quite capable of putting up a fight on its own, but it will send a psychic SOS to all nearby sea Pokémon, who are likely to have much less restraint to incapacitate rather than kill. Attacking Entei means bringing the entire local wild population down around one's ears.

Furthermore, Entei's excursions are mainly to bleed off geothermal pressure and trigger evacuations from impending volcanic eruptions. If it were to be captured for an extended period of time, the ramifications would likely involve a rather large death count worldwide.

Other

Though Entei is one of the most socially active Legendaries known, many details of its origin, physiology, and the extent of its abilities remain unconfirmed — indeed, we still do not even know for sure of its uniqueness, gender, or the details of what happened in Orre. The sailors it most frequently associates with are for the most part sworn to confidentiality, and rarely get straight answers when they inquire anyway.

Nice. I like how the Legendary entries describe a figure of near godlike power and importance and in serious modern terms, not just as myths. That's kinda what I was going for with Mewtwo: The Pokemon world is very different from ours, people see these animals defy the laws of physics every day and know that very powerful legends usually aren't just legends.

I'd kinda forgotten about this thread so I might give another Pokemon a go soon.

No canon basis. Just some very unlucky pirates that picked a very unfortunate target. Entei ON A BOAT! isn't remotely canon either.

In fact, I think the third movie and Colosseum references and his moveset are the only things remotely canonical about that article. I actually shot down most of the game 'dex entries.

Lugia

Morphs [Oak Catalog #]

  • Lugia [249]

Physical Descriptions

Lugia is an enormous flying Pokémon whose body combines the features of both avians and cetaceans, resulting in a streamlined creature capable of surviving equally well in the air or beneath the sea. Lugia’s flesh is predominantly white with a blue underbelly. Its head rests atop a long and muscular neck, and in addition to a pointed crest at the back of its skull, two smaller blue crests run along its eyebrows; it possesses a rounded beak, not unlike that found in dolphins, which houses two large fangs on the lower jaw. The great beast’s arms terminate in four broad, flat fingers and a thumb, and are so strong that they can swiftly propel Lugia through the remarkable water pressure of the abyssal plane against even the strongest currents, or keep Lugia aloft while flying by flapping no more than once every ten seconds—six times a minute. The creature’s powerful hind legs end in three-toed feet that lack noticeable talons but provide excellent thrust while underwater and stability while on land. Finally, two parallel rows of four navy blue dorsal plates run down Lugia’s back, and its sinuous tail features two similarly-coloured spikes which form a rudder; these seem to function as ailerons, improving the great beast’s manoeuvrability while airborne and flattening to reduce drag when swimming against powerful currents.

It is uncertain how many Lugia exist in the wild; while the inhabitants of the Whirl Islands claim that infant Lugia roost on the isles near their home, no evidence in support of this has ever been recovered. The creature’s gender, if any, has not been determined, although it is known to communicate telepathically in a calm, collected male voice; as such, most tales and legends which focus on Lugia refer to it by masculine titles and pronouns.

Lore and History

In Johto myth and legend, Lugia is considered to be a sacred animal and is worshipped as a god of the sea, the underworld and the weather, second only to its brother Ho-Oh. It is known by many names and titles across the world—the Great Dragon, the Guardian of the Sea, the Leviathan, Singer in Darkness, He of the Silver Wings, Soulstorm, the Fulcrum, the White Wanderer, the Living Moonlight and The Titan of the Abyss, to name but a few. It is the Lord and Master of the Triad of Fire, Ice and Lightning, and is the only being that can calm these Titans when the balance between them is disrupted.

In addition to this, Lugia is the supreme deity of the predominant faiths of the Orange Archipelago, particularly the Jaffarange people of Shamouti Island. In one particular creation myth, Lugia is said to have fallen from heaven in a shooting star, and arrived on a barren, unformed lump of earth and chaos at the beginning of time. He used his phenomenal powers to shape this lump into the world, flapping his wings at gale force to carve mountains and flooding the lump with water to form the islands. When his labours were completed, Lugia looked upon his creation without satisfaction, for while he had created a paradise world, the weather was wild and untamed, and it lacked life.

To rectify this he impregnated the sea, the sky and the land with his divine essence, and the three each bore him a son—from the sea, Frost; from the sky, Lightning; and from the land, Flame. Once his sons were born, he took a lump of clay, fashioned it into many small figures, and sang to them in a voice so beautiful and perfect that the heavens themselves wept at its glory. Soon the figures responded to his song and began to sing as well, their forms changing and their clay falling away to reveal flesh; and thus were the first humans and the first Pokémon born into the world. His task complete, Lugia took to the sea to rest as his creation began to flourish and grow.

Interestingly enough, in addition to being the creator god of these myths Lugia is also the patron of musicians and song. One legend states that the Beast of the Sea was slumbering beneath the waves when he was awakened by a faint sound, carried into the depths from the surface far above. Intrigued, Lugia arose from the sea and cast his eye about the world, eventually finding the source of the noise—a young girl, blowing into a hollow bone and an empty shell. Lugia was impressed with the melody and power of the sounds, but felt that the girl could do better; and so he revealed himself to her, took the shell from her hands and put holes into it, thereby creating the first ocarina. He then sang with her and taught the girl the melody and lyrics of the world’s first song, the Cry of the Waves; this stirring and powerful melody is held sacred by the Jaffarange people, and it is passed down from mother to daughter in the bloodline which eventually descended from that girl.

As a corollary to the above, the Cry of the Waves is believed to have the power to summon Lugia during times of crisis, and in tandem with the magic of the god’s shrine on Shamouti Island, can bring peace to turbulent weather and calm the Three Legendary Birds should their delicate balance be disrupted. Also, it is a widely-held belief amongst sailors that if one hears the distant melody of Lugia’s song while at sea, they shall be blessed with a long and peaceful life, and their death shall be painless and occur while they are with family and friends.

Known Sightings

As it spends much of its time far beneath the waves, Lugia is rarely seen by the people of the world. While it has been known to lair within the deepest caverns of the Whirl Islands and appears to have claimed the entirety of the Orange Archipelago as its demesne, the Titan of the Abyss has no real fixed abode; as such, numerous non-profit organizations dedicated to tracking the creature’s movements have sprung up over the years. Their findings have revealed that Lugia prefers to swim along El camino del dragón blanco, the vast current which circumnavigates the globe and appears to have a profound effect on Earth’s weather patterns; whether this is a result of Lugia’s presence or a complete coincidence has never been determined.

The most well-documented sighting of Lugia occurred during what historians are now referring to as “the Millennial Crisis”—the period of chaotic and dangerous weather brought about when billionaire collector and international arms-dealer Geraldo Anthony Lawrence III—also known by the pseudonym Giraldan, or simply Lawrence III—captured Moltres and Zapdos in an attempt to claim the Guardian of the Sea for himself. The criminal’s selfish and egotistical actions drove the Avatars of Frost, Lightning and Flame into a mindless frenzy which not even their Lord and Master could break, and the rampaging avians would surely have laid waste to the earth were it not for the intervention of a mysterious Pokémon Trainer and a priestess of the Jaffarange, who managed to fulfill the terms of an ancient prophecy which had foretold this catastrophe and calm the Legendary Birds with an unequalled performance of the Cry of the Waves. The Guardian of the Sea returned to its home beneath the waves shortly afterward, pausing only to honour the unnamed Trainer with a brief ride on its back.

Lugia was reported missing for the duration of the Cipher Incident in Orre, and sketchy reports made during this time speak of some manner of dark, corrupted Lugia who had been so thoroughly broken and twisted by the evil organization’s efforts that it adopted an inverted colour scheme and its eyes turned crimson; during the final months of the crisis, it is said that this nightmare beast—purportedly designated as “XD-001”—ran rampant across the desert region, causing unimaginable death and destruction at Cipher’s command. While it is not clear whether this entity was the same Lugia—or, indeed, that it even existed in the first place—the Guardian of the Sea has been notably more skittish, less willing to let itself be observed for any length of time; sightings of Lugia have thus decreased exponentially, to the disappointment of Lugia watchers the world over.

Diet (if any)

While its sharp canines would suggest a carnivorous diet, it is not clear what Lugia eats, or if it even requires sustenance in the ordinary sense. If it needs to drink, it is hardly difficult for it to come by water, given that it lives deep beneath the sea.

Abilities

It is said that Lugia spends so much time on the ocean floor because its powers are so great that they are incredibly difficult to control while on the surface. One myth of the Jaffarange people holds that Lugia, displeased with mankind’s increasingly corrupt and hedonistic nature, took to the skies and flapped its wings with such force that the entire world was covered in a vast hurricane and biblical floodwaters for forty days and forty nights; while this appears to be little more than myth at first glance, it is known that Lugia is capable of generating winds strong enough to shatter cliffs and mountainsides with a single beat of its wings.

It is evident that Lugia is unhindered by the crushing water pressure of the abyssal plane, and even thrives in such an inhospitable environment; as such, its hide is incredibly tough and resistant to many forms of attack. Furthermore, it does not need to breathe while underwater despite having lungs, allowing it to survive with equal ease in nearly any environment. In spite of all this, and in spite of the fact that it possesses a strong water-bladder which allows it to expel potent jets of seawater from its mouth, Lugia is not a true Water-type Pokémon.

Instead, the creature is a potent Psychic-type, and possesses all the powers one would expect of such a being. In addition to the aforementioned telepathy, Lugia has displayed potent aerokinetic and hydrokinetic abilities, and can surround itself with a sphere of telekinetic force which blunts the strength of special attacks. It can also assault an opponent with an invisible barrage of psionic force, and it appears to be somewhat precognitive in that it can foresee what actions those around it will make in the immediate future and react accordingly.

As mentioned above, Lugia is an avid singer, and it can sometimes be heard leading pods of Wailmer, Wailord, and Dragonite in choral whale song; sonar examination has revealed that these songs also function as a form of echolocation, allowing Lugia to navigate the lightless depths of the ocean by sound alone.

Hazards

Lugia is a gentle and compassionate organism, not given to fits of violence or anger. That said, the beast is—quite rightly—considered a god by many of the world’s faiths, and while it is difficult to anger the Guardian of the Sea, once its ire has been roused it will demonstrate precisely why a god is not to be trifled with. Lugia’s power is extraordinary, being equivalent to Ho-Oh and the beasts of the Weather Triad, and it can end a fight swiftly no matter what sort of opposition it may face, be it with or without fatalities: a Team Aqua cell which had been sent to capture the Soulstorm for their own ends was quickly dispatched by a single flap of the Titan’s wings, and they awoke hours later to discover that they had been blown from Hoenn clear to Sinnoh, halfway across the world.

As previously mentioned, Lugia’s tough hide and telekinetic barriers give it a potent defence that only the strongest of Rock-types could hope to break through, and it can deal with such enemies by expelling a pressurized jet of nearly one thousand gallons of seawater from its mouth. Furthermore, the devastating power of its signature ability—dubbed the Aeroblast by the media—is well-known from media coverage of the Millennial Crisis: by gathering and condensing air molecules in its mouth while using its aerokinetic powers to churn the resulting wind, Lugia is capable of firing a beam of hypersonic wind and ionized particles with enough speed and force to turn a mountain—or a flying fortress such as the one formerly used by Lawrence III—into a puddle of fine sand and iron filings.

To face down such awesome destructive power is suicide, so if one encounters Lugia in the wild, it is advisable that one does nothing to anger the Titan; Lugia tends to spare those foolish enough to challenge it more often than not, but the beast’s vast power is so difficult for it to control that more than a few accidental deaths have occurred as a result.

Other

Because of its immense religious significance, calm demeanour and tremendous power, Lugia has a recurring role in a number of video games produced by a well-known company which specializes in the roleplaying genre. In such games it typically appears as a powerful entity the player character must subdue late in the game so that he or she might call upon its power to unleash devastating attacks on enemy Pokémon; possessing it is typically optional, but it often makes battling the final boss of any particular game much less of a hassle.
