Anyone working on crogunk/toxicroak? If not can I?
I woulda liked to see something about Tri attack, since they were one of the only pokemon that could learn it in the earlier gens. I always saw it as Dodrios signature move.
↑A good point, Tri Attack. How do I shot it?
On Dodrio, I'd like to see something about The Three Faces of Adam / The Three Faces of Eve. Suppossedly Dodrio's facial expressions are that of anger, apathy and another thing beginning with "a"... I don't recall where did I read that though...
I'm going to write up Lavender Town then.
How much can we make up? Just filling in the missing bits or pure fanon?
Both, in that order (and precedence) I'd say.
You know, you would have thought that the Ghost Pokémon would have made a bit of a fuss about their home being converted into a radio tower, but apparently Lavender Town's doing just fine.
Makes me wonder if there's some secret deal explaining the real reason you can't go to the upper stories in G/S...
^Don't steal my ideas man.
Can anyone help me with the funky formatting?

What sort of formatting do you need?

@Tangent how do I do page seperates and such, and bigger text. The coloured splitters.
I was thinking of doing the Barboach and Electrike lines next.
Also, while I was showering, I thought up a scientific name for Aron, Ferrous corpulus.

Tri Attack, I was gonna do something about that and forgot. I also might expand on the personalities of individual heads later.
Edit: Done! Though I am not going to go into the mechanics behind Special and elemental attacks at all, because anything I come up with would just be technobabble.

Lavender Town started out as one of the many graveyards dotted around Kanto. Up until the 18th century, when the advancement of technologies resulted in many Pokemon graves being moved around to accomodate, it wasn't well known. However, in despair of their Pokemon, many trainers went on a pilgrimage to find a safe place away from the technological world of Kanto in order to bury their Pokemon.
Their journey was not in vain, for they found a quiet location secreted in the mountains. The air was fresh and the mountains protected the majority of the graves from the elements. These made it the perfect place, and due to the large amount of pilgrims making their way through, a small community developed into what is now called Lavender Town. The name is derived from the discovery of lavender plants that were discovered among the graves, a flower that is rare anywhere else.
Lavender Town is situated at one end of Rock Tunnel and can also be accessed via Saffron City or Route 12. There is no wind because of the mountains and the only important landmark is Pokemon Tower.
Mr. Fuji and the Name Rater make their home here.
Once a simple graveyard, Pokemon Tower began its life hidden in the inside of a hollowed out cliff-face. Because of it's protection from the elements, people quickly brought their Pokemon here, quickly filling up the location. New floors were ordered built, despite the complaints by certain workers who said they heard voices.
Five years ago, Team Rocket invaded the Tower in order to gather the skulls of Cubone to sell. As a result, they killed a mother Marowak who was protecting her child. Outraged, Mr. Fuji went to stop Team Rocket but he was captured. The mediums were possessed by ghost pokemon, and no one could do anything.
On that same day, people say the legendary trainer Red came and entered the tower. 30 minutes later, he came out with Mr. Fuji, who said the Marowak spirit had been put to rest. Because of future risk, Mr. Fuji built a house in memory of Red, called Memorial House, where he took the graves underground. Safe forever.
At the time, the tower is now the Kanto radio tower.

Would be ok with you if I did Tryougue and its evos?
^^ Uh, last I checked I'm pretty sure Lavender plants weren't by any means rare...
^It could be rare in Kanto. We don't know how the fauna is, it's never mentioned. However, I might replace it with a fact that lavender flowers were found growing inside the cave.
Here is the Hitmon Line.
Feedback would be cool.
236 Tyrogue Line
The Tyrogue line also known as the "Hitmon" line, are natural born fighters, both mentally and physically, posessing slender flexible bodies that allow them to perform a wide
variety of defensive moves. Fully grown members fare really well in the wild but the majority of their juvenile members often fail to reach maturity because of their incedibly headstrong attitude, which leads them to start a fight with anything that poses a challenge, even a Tauros far bigger in size and power, leading to tragic deaths.
Because of this, adults are even harder to find in the wild than the younglings, which are already rare on their own. Reason which has led some of them to become domestic and have greater survival rates.
One curious characteristic of this family of Pokemon is that all specimens found up to date are males, both in the wild and in captivity. Unlike the Nido family wherere a female counterpart is present, the Hitmon family has no females and thus adapted to mate with other Pokémon of the Humanshape group.
Since no female specimens have been sighted it has been speculated by Pokemon experts that females went extnict several thousands of years ago and thus the males were forced to adapt their genetic material to be compatible with other Pokemon of the same egg group..
The Hitmon family's body and metabolism develop rapidly and become a completley different morph depending on the way the Tyrogue uses its combat abilities.
These Pokemon are highly valued by trainers for their amazing fighting potential and loyalty, but due their rarity in the wild, Dojo masters raise them domestically
and give them out only to the ones worthy enough for the task of their difficult training.
''Tyroges arent common in the wild, but they could perhaps be found nearby mountain ranges and caves where they train alongside Machop and Makuhita, and often break out in violent fights with them for territory.
These Pokemon however, are incredibly common and far more successful in urban areas and a few are known to escape the dojos from which they are trained and scavenge for food''
''They are omnivores, but have a preference for berries and different kinds of vegetables. A hungry Tyroge might eat the occasional Caterpie or Wurmple if desperate enough.
They also seem to enjoy and benefit from human food with no ill effects, making them relatively easy to feed''
They never seem to use their combat skills to kill prey even if fully capable of doing so.
While not particullary dangerous on its own, a wild Tyrogue might want to start a fight with passerby trainers, fighting it and catching may be tempting but please, DO NOT respond to its challenge. Most of the Tyrogue related accidents report 3 or more Tyroges and even species from the Mankey line (See Social Line) surrounding the victim, then proceeding to knock out and steal his or her supplies.
If it is, by any chance, encountering lone Tyrogue that is really on its own, there are two possibilities:
Its still unadvisable to attempt to catch one as its hard to tell whether or not its parents might be following or not. Also an inexperienced trainer's pokemon might accidentally seriously harm and even kill it. Such act is severely punished if on the watch of a Pokemon Ranger. (Trainer's note: wild Tyrogues are more stubborn and less likely to like its trainer than domestic, dojo and daycare raised Tyrogues, so the trouble is not really worth it.)
If you ever happen to find one of the extremely rare mature morphs in the wild, you musn't antagonize any of them under any circumstances.
Wild mature morphs, due to being raised in a hostile enviorment, will consider any thick-headed trainer a threat at the first sign of aggression and wont stop their pursuit until their aggressor is disabled or even dead if the attacker insists.
The previous scenario is even worse if you happen to harm or steal a Tyrogue under the watch of its father.
If one happens to be on the territories of a moody Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan or Hitmontop, avoid eye contact, dont make any sudden moves and be as quiet as possible, being always
sure to appear smaller and to avoid the nest (if present). (Trainer's note: DON'T. CATCH. THESE. A captured fully grown morph will be so mad at its captor that it will always
seek the chance to either escape or murder its captor So please, DON'T)
Under the circumstaces of being pursued by a wild Hitmonchan, find a tall place like a tree or a small cliff to climb, another option is lying on the ground as if being
unconcious and wait until the Pokémon assumes you are no longer a threat. Try to outrun if the Pokémon insists, fortunately they cannot run for long before becoming exhausted.
Hitmonlee on the other hand, can easily outrun a human being and much more temperamental than other morphs. One can neither climb a tree of cliff since Hitmonlee is a powerful jumper.
Emconters with wild Hitmonlees are almost followed by severe injuruies and death, just play dead like one would with Hitmonchan and the Pokémon will probably leave you alone.
When threatened, wild Hitmontop will start spinning in a stationary state, please step away from its prescence inmediatly, as it will give you at least 5 seconds before giving chase.
While spinning, a Hitmontop can easily catch up with you and break all the bones in your body once it gets you, once again, lie down, pretend you are knocked out and wait for the creature to leave.
Welll trained domestic members of this line though, are particuallary friendly towards people and can even be left around young children without any mayor problems aside from getting too near an enthusastic spinning Hitmontop. But as we probably know, unscupulous people like Team Rocket might use this species to help them with their petty crimes.
If you ever encounter yourself a Hitmontop, Hitmonchan or Hitmonlee owned by Team Rocket, dont engage in battle and warn the respective authorities inmediately.
A squad of Pokemon Rangers shall arrive an confiscate the according Pokémon inmediately.
Another problem are feral members of this line which go around towns stealing food
and playing pranks on its inhabitants becoming pests wherever they appear. Please, dont attaempt to fight or capture these, let a trained specialist take care of the situation.
Training a Tyrogue is no easy task and its no job for a begginer.If your child wants a Fighting type Pokemon, the less gutsy and more pleasable Machop is a better choice.
(And please, PLEASE dont give your child a Mankey unless you are that kind of parent)
Tyrogue are always in the need of constant fighting to feel happy and accomplished. Make it know that you are its mentor and that it should obey your orders.
Make its limits known, dont let your Tyrogue get into a fight you know it can't win, even if it insists. But dont get him to fight easy fights all the time either, as it will become bored of you and stop obeying. (Trainers note: Geodude ,Graveler and other Rock type pokemon found in caves seem to be the best choice for Tyrogue training,
but avoid Zubats at all costs, unless you want your Tyrougue purple, swollen and dead.)
Treat your Tyrougue with love and care, always compliment it after a victory and cheer it up after a defeat. Doing so will form a deep bond between you and your Pokémon that shall last forever. (Trainer's note: If you insisnt in treating it badly, your Pokemon shall form a deep wound in your body that shall hurt you forever)
Another hard part of Tyrougue training is aiming for a specific morph (ask your local Dojo master on how to train your Tryrougue to become a specific morph), but vitamins and nutritional complements also seem to be incredibly helpful on that aspect, if also incrediby pricey.
Dont depend too much on vitamins though, as your Pokémon might get
overdosed Understatement and not feel very well afterwards.
A fully grown morph should still be carefully maintained with a healthy protein-abundant diet, daily excesrise and constant training so it stays in shape. Be always sure to give
it a break once in a while and reward it with its favorite food as a stressed Pokemon might fall sick very often.
Be also sure to teach your adult morphs to properly controll their strenghts as a firendly competition has become a tragic fight one too many times on the hands of unexperienced trainers.
Some tournaments require signed Hitmonlee and Hitmontop to get their nails trimmed before the competition
Pokemon of this line become Fertile once they morph into Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan or Hitmontop.
Being a male only species, the Hitmon family, must breed with other Pokemon of the Humanshape group like Jynx, Magmar, and Electabuzz, the resulting children often
aquire one of the mother's skills after birth.
While their mating habits havent been recorded in the wild, in captivity, tHe Hitmon line's mating rituals are often seen at night and each strain of the Hitmon line has a specific way to attact a female.
A Hitmonlee performs an agile mating dance upon seeing his love interest and waits until the female is interested and comes closer to him. The couple then dances together and after finishing they proceed to go to a private place.
Hitmonchan will often bring a gift akin to the pretended mate in hopes that she likes it and then starts "flexing" to further appeal to her.
Hitmontop will burrow a den with his head and decorate it with shiny trinkets and perfume it with herbs and invites his mate in an activity akin to "a romantic dinner"
But, it has also been noticed that The Hitmons are also attracted by Humanshape Pokemon mating rituals, including humans which has led to a heated controversy when a woman from Johto stated that she fell in love with her Hitmonchan and then stated that she wanted to marry him after a rare case of Human-Pokemon romantic realationship.
The amount of offspring depends on the mother's birth rate.
The fully mature morphs forms a permanent pair with their mate through their entire lives. THe role of protecting the nest often befalls on the Hitmon while the mate goes in search for food with the exception of Electabuzz which defends the nest instead of the Hitmon.
When Tyrogues are big enough, they leave the nest and live on their
own. Some Tyroges form gangs up to 5 members, which often include a member of the Mankey line. These gangs often have more chances to survive than lone Tyrogues
It has also been observed once a lone Hitmonlee leading a troop of Tyrogues.

Much better, thank you. Give me a few minutes and I'll take a proper look at it.
The Japanese Pokedex entries for Black and White came out. There's some things on there you might wanna think about if you're gonna do one of those pokemon.
... -left eye bulges-
Tyr OGUE. Not Tyr OUGE.

^^ We'll wait for their romanizations, we're using everyone else's English names at the moment (plus the 'dex entries are often changed for different regional releases)...
