There is a lot of good comparisons in this thread to other, currently existing Pokemon. There are a few that stood out; please become familiar with them, as I will be referencing them throughout the officializing of Syclar. Special ones to take note are as follows:
Joltik / Galvantula
Growlithe / Arcanine
Karrablast / Escavalier (Shelment / Accelgor)
Anorith / Armaldo
These all have some sort of embodiment that I think would suit the relationship between Syclar / Syclant. Please note that they are all pretty unique and present different groups of thought. I don't want to say "SYCLAR MUST EMBODY x" this early on in the game. However, we do need to start thinking about which way we want to head with this. Growlithe's line would be pretty straightforward, while Karrablast's would be wildly different, for example. As a participator, think of what kind of flavor you'd like Syclar to embody (is it tough from enduring mountains? is it weak as a young bug? does it exhibit strength in its limbs and mandibles?). We need to keep this consistent throughout typing, ability, movepool, and stats, so start thinking about this right away.
Thanks for your participation; expect the next thread up shortly!
