    heh, most Pokemon are surprisingly small, and I think having this thing tower over most of them kind of undermines its trickster personality. Why be sneaky if you're big enough to pummel most of them anyway?

    Eh, I'm not great with imperial but I actually envision this pretty small. If it's going to be digging through the desert it can't just be leaving 6 foot tunnels behind it - the sand would colapse in on it!
    In metric I feel about 60 kg would be the max since it does have a few metal parts. Maybe 130-150 cm, about the height of a small child.
    Everybody elses opinions?

    Ok so aparently Height isn't measured in the stance in the sprite, it's just in general (or so I hear).

    We've been talking 10 Pounds per hand. In kg that's 36 for 8 hands. His body and arms don't constitute all that much compared to 8 hands, so somewhere around 50-60 kg is reasonable I feel (110-130 pounds)

    EDIT: Server folks seem content with 116.8 Pounds.

    Even if this ends up being really tall, I still imagine the body being very little, and the whole thing being surprisingly light. The hands are big, but 23 lbs?

    Also, Sunday you did a great job, this CAP was definitely the cleanest. Looking forward to using Fidgit.

    ^ Well Hyra did say his body same is about the same as a toddler, and toddlers are around 23 lbs.

    I'll say stick him in the 5-6 feet club and 125 pounds. That seem reasonable.

    A toddler is about 2 feet tall, and his arms appear to be about 4 times the
    bodies size, so I'd assume the arms would be 8 feet each, so when stretched out, he'd be near 18 feet tall ._.

    On the server we're looking at 7'01" ft full stretch, 3'01" ft when it's legs are folded in like in the pics.
    Also 116.8 Pounds from before.

    Gogo Hurricane fan style whirlwinds/tailwinds. That would make one impressive Pokemon in terms of size.

    Great job, everybody. Fidgit looks like he'll be a blast to play, just like I hoped.

    Good job, Sunday. You were a fair topic leader, you did the job well, and you were conscientious and personable throughout the whole project.

    Sounds perfect. This is exactly what I would like.

    (Although there is no compressed height entry.)

    First of all, I'd like to congratulate all the big names in this.
    Sunday was a great TL, Doug had a great sprite, even though it wasn't my first choice, and Cartoons! definitely gets two thumbs up for the idea of Fidgit.
    Can't wait to get this thing going, hopefully it will revive our beloved CAP server. :)

    ^ Jesus Christ....that's too big O_o. A Toddler-sized spider with a 18 leg span is already a stretch (not a huge one actually, it's very probable) but Groudon sized?

    7' 1" when fully stretched works for me, but I love Atyroki toddler killer more xD

    I think I might just as well post the pre-evo movepool I had written at the same time as the movepool for this:

    Pre-evo Level-up List:
    1. Doubleslap
    5. Acid
    9. Encore
    13. Gust
    19. Mud-slap
    23. Whirlwind
    27. Knock Off
    32. Sludge
    38. Tailwind
    46. Me First

    Gust replaces Rapid Spin, while Tailwind replaces Sand Tomb and Gravity. This is why I had made Sand Tomb and Gravity be learned both at the same level.

    (Also, would I be assuming too much if we made the pre-evo a Poison/Flying type?)

    As for a TM list, it's basically the same as that for Fidgit except it has the following moves missing:

    TM01 - Focus Punch
    TM15 - Hyper Beam
    TM26 - Earthquake
    TM28 - Dig
    TM31 - Brick Break
    TM53 - Energy Ball
    TM60 - Drain Punch
    TM68 - Giga Impact
    TM71 - Stone Edge
    TM74 - Gyro Ball
    HM08 - Rock Climb

    Its breeding moves as exactly the same as Fidgit's.

    That's good there X-act. Cartoon had already posted his idea on what Fidgit's pre-evolution looks like. Before anyone mention it, wind energy gather between his hands and then fired like Ki blast.

    I'm assuming giga impact and hyper beam are also not on the pre-evo?

    Otherwise, movepool looks good.

    This looks really nice and seems to fit quite well with some of the explanations offered in earlier threads. Cartoons, what would you name this little guy?

    Before I read Cartoons' explanation, I was thinking we could call it Jitter or something (kinda like Fidgit?). But maybe not, because they're supposed to be so different.

    Own Tempo sounds like a good idea for an ability that would lead to Vital Spirit.

    As for the name, we don't need to go into a poll or anything, as the pre-evo's name is pretty unimportant (are Pyroak's pre-evos listed anywhere?)

    How's Breezi? Breeze + Easy (takes it easy, easygoing etc....)

    Tiptot? Tiptoe (a more subdued action compared to adult's fidget) + Tot

    Take it easy, Breezi....I like it already. It rolls right off the tongue so smoothly and it's quite catchy to boot.
