Embirch, the Sanguine Pokemon
Diamond: EMBIRCH are known for their over-confident attitude. They are relentless when trying to impress their comrades, but are usually unsuccessful.
Pearl: It is said that the leaves of an EMBIRCH's skirt are foraged by its mother. Only when worn can an EMBIRCH be truly accepted as a member of its tribe.
Patinum: The cannons of an EMBIRCH can supply a weak ember. This is used for guiding its fellow members through dense jungles.
Flarelm, the Scorch Pokemon
Diamond: It is very easy to anger a resting FLARELM. Once provoked, it uses its club-like cannons to batter its foe.
Pearl: FLARELM's wooden armour is robust and fire-resistant, allowing it to utilise powerful heat waves without caution.
Platinum: The wood of a FLARELM's cannon darkens over time. This is due to the absorption of ash residue from which the flames leave behind.
Explanations: I had difficulty coming up with Embirch's species name, until I realised that Sanguine was very fitting. It both implied a red-like colour, and also a happily-proud attitude, which is what Embirch is, and what I was trying to convey in my descriptions. Diamond conveys their overconfident nature, Pearl shows the fact that Embirch is still just a child, and the nurturing aspect, and the Platinum introduces why the cannons are there.
For Flarelm, I also had difficulty when thinking up a species name, but decided upon Scorch, as it shows the fire typing, with a hint of agression; previously I had named Flarelm "The Agression Pokemon" but then I decided that it didn't work. Diamond shows that agression, Pearl gives the explanation for why Flarelm doesn't spontaneously combust, and Platinum shows the darker wood, and how ash comes into play. Overall, I'm pretty sanguine with my dex submissions.
