    BLACK: Tomohawk heighten their mystical powers by using the wings that fall off of Ducklet and Swanna.

    WHITE: When they eveolve, Tomohawks' mystical powers are influenced by mysterious wings that it finds on bridges.

    GRAY(?): Tomohawks mysteriously lack the physical fighting skill possesed by PRECAPNAME. Insted, they focus on honing their non-contact abilities.

    Height: 4'3"

    Weight: 74.2 lbs
    42 is the meaning of life... somehow that has to do with Tomohawk.

    Species: Fake Bird Pokemon

    Height:3'9"

    Weight:102lbs

    Dex entry: It's numbers have fallen due to hunting. It is said that Tomohawk fight with the spirits of the forest.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Reasoning: I figured that this pokemon should not be too large or too heavy. The weight compared to it's size does allure to a muscle mass (fighting type)

    Most BW entries are very short, i figured that the whole idea of it being hunted makes sense because of the fact that it looks like a bird from behind, it has fur and feathers which would make it a prime target for poachers, plus the dwindling numbers and the idea that it fights with the spirits of the forest give it a mysterious but also kinda tough allure to it.

    Alright, my shot at this.

    Tomohawk, the Cloak Pokémon.
    Height: 3'5'' (Slightly taller than a meter, and comparable to many other predator birds).
    Weight: 80 lbs (slightly more than the average bird, which makes sense as it is more like a mammal).

    White Entry: One or two Tomohawks will distract prey with their colored cloaks, giving their cubs time to catch the prey.
    Black Entry: Tribes of Tomohawk and PREVONAME often live in places connected to their ancestors.

    Ugh, I forgot to ask reachzero about what he thought about one dex entry vs two or three. Oh, well:

    Final Submission

    Species: Chief Pokémon (idk if we're really doing this but w/e)
    Height: 4' 8" (1.4 m)
    Weight: 88.6 lbs (40.2 kg)

    Black: This Pokémon's fur behaves like feathers, allowing it to fly. Researchers believe that a Tomohawk must hunt down a Mandibuzz to gain its tribe's favor as chieftain.

    White: Tomohawk relies on the powers of nature to lead its tribe. Many have mistaken this Pokémon for a Braviary.

    The height and weight are the average of the birds of prey in Unova, Braviary and Mandibuzz, since it's supposed to be able to disguise itself as a bird of prey. I replaced the moon reference because I kept being asked what it was for (I guess fewer people read my movepool's flavour explanation that I thought lol). I also tried to troll a bit in my initial submission, but I don't think anyone really got the troll and I just find it much more sensible at this point to put the Mandibuzz and Braviary references into the proper versions. In the end, I want my submission to be clear and straightforward.

    Don't have a species name yet, but...

    Height:
    4' 2" ( Lots of fully evolved Flying & Fighting types in the Unova Dex are around four feat tall. A few examples: Braviary, Mandibuzz, Swana, Sigilyph, Throh, Sawk, Conkeldurr, and Mienshao. )

    Weight: 84 lbs (I imagine Exactly Half of Tomohawk's weight comes from its feathery "cloak", while it's actual body weight is 42 pounds, which is around the same weight as smaller wild cats. Low Kick/Grass Knot have 60 base power against it.)



    Entry Concpet 1:
    According to Unovan mythology, Tomohawk is a mischievous trickster that obtained the ability to fly by stealing feathers from a Braviary.

    Entry Concept 2: Tomohawk are social Pokemon that lead a pack of up to 12 [Pre-evo name]. Working together, they can easily hunt down prey as large as Bouffalant.

    First entry is inspired by the numerous Native American legends of tricksters, while the second entry is based on the native Americans that lived on the plains of America, that frequently hunted Buffalo, hence Bouffalant. Let me know which entry you prefer.


    Any suggestions on improving the grammar are highly appreciated.

    Height
    :3'07''/1.1m
    Just a bit smaller than Fearow, Mandibuzz and Staraptor. I think that Tomohawk should be smaller than them because they really on their Special attacks instead of their strength.

    Weight:70.5 lbs/32.0kg
    About the same wight as Archeops. It's heavier than Staraptor, but lighter than Mandibuzz and Fearow.

    Black:It leads a watches over a pack of Prevoname. They have been spotted flying above the group, frightening other birds away with their "coats."

    White:They live in large packs, and are rarely seen alone. Each member of the group has it's proper job, from lookout to training the young to fight.

    Species:Leader Pokemon

    For the first entry I wanted to give a purpose to the hood, so I made it use that to fool other birds that might prey on their young. For the second entry I really wanted to show it being a team player, so I mentioned that they live in large packs and that they have to work together.

    Height- 3'2"
    Weight- 78.3 lbs.
    I wanted it to be a little smaller than some of the other bird pokemon, but all of that fur would probably give it slightly more bulk, and therefore it would weigh more.

    Species- Native Pokemon

    Black- Tomohawks often lead packs of prevoname, helping the little ones collect feathers from birds they hunt.

    White- This pokemon is almost never seen alone. It is usually accompanied by a group of prevonames it is training to hunt.

    Species: Chieftain Pokemon
    Height: 4' 2'' / 1.27 m (Taller than Mandibuzz, smaller than Braviary and Archeops)
    Weight: 82 lbs / 37.2 kgs (Heavier than Archeops, lighter than Mandibuzz and Braviary)

    Black: It is rumored they once used their shamanistic powers to help an ancient civilization cope with life in the desert.

    White: Until only a few years ago they were thought to be extinct. Now researchers believe they were merely mourning the lose of an ancient city.

    ~I really enjoyed the whole ancient desert civilization back story in Unova and I thought Tomohawk fit right in. Also the idea of Tomohawk helping the ancient peoples adapt to desert life is a reference to the Native Americans teaching the Pilgrims to cope with life in the new country.

    Man, I just noticed this but 4"2 is four inches 2 (nothing). I'm pretty sure you mean 4'2".

    Also there should be no apostrophe in members.

    I like this one, but I don't think it's necessary to put a Gray Dex Entry...

    Species: Masquerade Pokemon
    Height: 3'3"
    Weight: 65.5 lbs

    Black: Their plumage shines like snapdragons in the midday sun. When boiled with potatoes, cabbage, and mint sauce, they make a rather tasty broth that can be used to cure paraesthesia and seal cracks in cement.

    White: They are expert hunters and trackers, and are also very capable harpsichord players. They clean their feathers by staring at them, and their stomach acid can digest concrete. Nobody is really sure why.

    I'm not sure, so I just included it for the heck of it. You never know, and in most cases it's better to have a bit too much than not enough.

    Species:
    Ruse Pokemon
    Height: 4' 9" / 1.22 m
    Weight: 70 lbs / 31.8 kg

    Black: It is often mistaken for a giant Fearow when seen from below.
    White: While it is normally serious and imtimidating when with its pack of PREEVONAME and other Tomohawk it is a prankster and plays tricks on others.
    Grey: It often steals quills and feathers from suseptable Sigilyph and Delibird.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Other Random Things: Has hollow bones to enable flight (reason for it light weight) (the heaviest bird capable of flight is accually 42 pounds but with Tomohawk's strong muscles I think he can support 70 lbs).

    The Tribal Feline Pokemon
    Height: 4' 4"
    Weight: 84.2 lbs (Grass knot & Low kick have 60 base power against 'Mohawk.)

    List of Flying & Fighting types that are around the same height as Tomohawk (open)

    -Conkeldurr is 4' 7"
    -Sawk is 4' 7"
    -Throh is 4' 3"
    -Mienshao is 4' 7"

    -Swana is 4' 3"
    -Braviary is 4' 11"
    -Mandibuzz is 3' 11"


    Pokedex entries:

    White:
    Ancient people believed that Tomohawk was a mischievous trickster that obtained it's flight powers by stealing the feathers of Sigilyph.

    Black: A social Pokemon that leads a pack of [Pre-evo name]s. Working together, they can easily hunt down prey as large as Bouffalant.


    Third Game:
    It can use mystic powers to summon intense winds strong enough to send a truck flying.



    Notes on my 'Dex entries:

    I went with the word pack instead of tribe for my Black Dex for three reasons:
    1) Tribe sounded too much like a human group, and not a group of wild Pokemon.
    2) A group of animals that hunt in the wild are usually called packs.
    3)There are several Poke Dex Entries that use "pack" to describe a group of monsters (open)

    Throh's White Entry:

    When they encounter foes bigger than themselves, they try to throw them. They always travel in packs of five.
    Mightyena's Black/White Entry:


    It chases down prey in a pack. It will never disobey the commands of a skilled Trainer.



    The Third Game 'Dex was inspired by several dex entries (open)

    Guess I'll give this a shot.
    Tomohak, the gryphon pokemon
    Height: 3'6"

    Weight: 98 lbs


    Black: it's fur has hardened into feather-like quills, allowing it to fly. It has a "wingspan" of over 6 feet.

    White: it acts as the leader of a pack of prevoname, scouting for prey from above.


    man, it seems like everyone is trying this. Reachzero, I do not envy you the task of thinning this herd. Anyway, I tried to keep this relatively simple. I made one entry about it's physical traits and one about it's personality. Classification is based off of it's appearance, and height and weight ballparked off of other people's suggestions.
