    All competitive aspects of Scratchet are now done! Hooray!

    Now we can have a bit of fun with the end of Scratchet, the dex entries! These round out the project with a fun little side doodad to work on. Below are some rules and such for the thread:

    • Dex entries must be submitted as a final submission to be considered for the final poll. Bold the words 'Final Submission' in your post for it to be considered as such.
    • You may ask for advice, but bumping of any kind is disallowed. If people don't comment on your dex entry, let that be your feedback. You can revise it and repost it, but don't ask countless times for feedback.
    • Dex entries are typically 1 to 3 concise sentences.
    • Black and White no longer lists other Pokemon in dex entries in all capital letters. The Pokemon itself is referred to as 'it' or 'its' in the dex entries.
    • Keep entries in good taste. If it happens on Animal Planet or in National Geographic, it's fair game, but gratuitously violent or excessively disgusting entries will be infracted and deleted.
    • Do not post "Cool!" or "I like this one!" without additional comments. Substantiate your posts. Your post will be infracted and deleted if you do this. Make sure that you provide support and provide comments when you say stuff like this.
    • You may only submit one final submission. If you want to change your final submission before the deadline, that's fine, but do not repost it. Edit your original final submission.
    • You must provide both a Black and a White dex entry in your submission. Both are necessary for your final submission to count.
    Here's our pre-evo so far:

    SPecies: Egg Cat Pokemon
    Black: It wears its eggshell for 6 months after hatching. Its dreams are always about flying.
    WHite: Sometimes in the night, Scratchet can be found howling to appease their frustration.

    Height: 75 cm
    Weight: 10 kg

    SCRATCHET (draft)

    Species: Scratch Cat Pokemon
    Height: 2' 00" / 0.6 m
    Weight: 39.7 lbs / 18 kg

    Black: Though playful and restless by nature, they treat Tomohawk with rare respect.

    White: They are often seen chasing Sigilyph, and are deeply inspired by Sigilyph's ability to fly.

    Explanations & Justifications:
    Show Hide

    Species: Meowth's species. Nothing in the world more fitting.
    Height: Braviary is 4' 11", Rufflet is 1' 08". Tomohawk is 4' 2", Scratchet is 2' 00". Fair enough, especially considering the mohawk.
    Weight: Exactly as heavy as Axew. Without all of Tomohawk's fancy props, the weight is bound to drop by a lot, just not as much as matching Rufflet (23.1 lbs) because Scratchet still has a fat-laden eggy body.
    Black dex entry: "playful" reflecting Prankster, and "restless" reflecting Vital Spirit.


    Oh yeah, Destiny Warrior, you have to provide entries for both Black and White. And the height and weight and species stuff, I think.

    Hm...I'll try my hand at this.

    Black: It waits until the day it evolves, when it gains mystical, mysterious powers. It dreams of flying.

    White: They always are in the company of an older Tomahawk. They seem to treat Scratchets as apprentices of sorts, teaching it various skills.

    Species:
    Playful Cat Pokemon
    Height: 2' 10"
    Weight: 21.8 lbs

    Black: Scratchet dreams about one day soaring across the sky. In it's failed efforts to do so, this Pokemon hurst himself falling from tall trees, as a result of it gaines the spirit and strenght of a great leader.

    White: Scratchet lives in groups, they like to play little tricks, to unsuspected travellers, such as screaming loudly or stealling their food, they also have an affinity for collecting shiny objects.

    Explanation (open)
    It's Height is a little above Spheal (which his shape faily resembles and they are both two-stage pokes), while it's weight is about the same (a little higuer) than Vullaby (which he also resembles), the dex entries are like the one Bagin has (that makes reference to vital spirit and it's evo) and the other is a reference to Prankster and Misdrevous and murkrow's entries

    Species: Combat Cub Pokemon
    Height: 2' 00" / 0.6 m
    Weight: 39.7 lbs / 18 kg

    Black: Some Scratchet love fighting with all they've got in battle, while other Scratchet prefer playing jokes on unsuspecting passerby. All Scratchet share a desire to roam the skies.

    White: When they're not playfully pulling pranks on people, Scratchet hone their fighting skills by training with Rufflet. The two Pokemon bonded over a shared dream of ruling the sky.

    Explanation:
    Show Hide
    I agree with ICC on height and weight, it seems fitting. It's the Combat Cub instead of a Scratch Cat because Scratchet always seemed more like a lion cub than a house cat to me, and it gets no scratching moves besides fury swipes. All three dex entries foreshadow its evolution by talking about how Scratchet dreams of the sky.

    The White dex entry references Prankster by mentioning that Scratchet "playfully" pull pranks on people when not fighting. I said playfully because it seems fitting that a cub would pull pranks and the like for fun, as opposed to mean-spiritedly like Ghost types would in their dex entries. It also mentions Rufflet because I saw a few Tomohawk dex entries talking about Braviary, and I thought it would be nice to have two playful-looking Pokemon who evolve into great flyers be friends because of the common desire to fly. The dex entry for Pokemon Black distinguishes two kinds of Scratchet because they are separated that way, due to their abilities. Scrappy is "fighting with all they got" because of the additional powers Scrappy grants in battle, and "playing jokes on unsuspecting passerby" is Prankster for obvious reasons. Hope you liked it!


    Edit: Since Tomohawk's winning dex entry does not have a Pokemon Grey entry, I removed the Black dex entry and replaced it with the Grey one. Made changes in the explanation accordingly.

    Species: Egg Cub Pokemon
    Height: 2' 4'' / 0.7 m
    Weight: 63 lbs / 28.6 kg

    Black: It roams about in packs of five to ten. They often wrestle to see who will be their leader.
    White: When it is born, it has no fur, therefore the pattern of its shell can be seen. As it grows, it begins to develop fur and the patern disappears.

    Species: Scrambled Cat Pokemon
    Height: 1'8" / 0.5m
    Weight: 22 lbs / 10 kg

    Black: It battles erratically to catch its prey off guard. Delibird is its favorite prey.

    White: It skulks along coastlines looking for other Scratchet to duel. Once it battles enough, it gets its wings in a mystical ritual, and lives on as Tomohawk.

    Um, just a head's up, IK how much we hate Delibird, but there are none in Unova where Scratchet and Tomohawk live. Sorry :P

    Species: Feather Fur Pokemon
    Height: 2' 6"
    Weight: 36.8 lbs

    Black: They are trained by Tomohawk for special powers used for protecting their tribe. Those same powers were once used for keeping an ancient race alive.
    White: Their fur grows longer every day until they are long enough to be used for flight. Once they have learned, they are accepted as a Tomohawk.

    Pretty simple.

    Pokedex entries have referred before to Pokemon not found in a region I think.

    Well, one of Tomohawk's entries mentions that they live in the desert. Not that it really matters, but still. *Shrug*

    FINAL SUBMISSION

    Species:
    Tribal Pokemon
    Height: 1' 11" / 0.6 m
    Weight: 34.1 lbs / 15.5 kg

    Black: It can live in the desert, where it is able to thrive on the water of cacti for months at a time. They will defend their chieftain Tomohawk to the death.
    White: They form tribes. Playful yet strong, they helped an ancient civilization build great cities.

    Version 3: Distinct tribes of these Pokemon have been observed. Some are peaceful and playful, some are very warlike, some are defensive and vigilant, but all of them are led by Tomohawk.
    RSEmakes: It can thrive for months using cacti for sustenance, only requiring a Delibird every so often to regain protein. They are naturally mischievous, but not to be underestimated.


    Explanation:
    I tried to make the B/W entries coincide with Tomohawk's B/W entries.
    Comparison with Joeyboy:
    So yeah, the Scratchet that thrives in the desert evolves to help others cope with the desert. The Scratchet who help ancient peoples build a city mourn its loss as Tomohawk.

    RSEmakes are basically for the inevitable Delibird slam.

    Species: Apprentice Pokemon
    Height: 2' 4"
    Weight: 62 lbs

    Black: They are playful and mischievous, but very competent. They can survive on their own in the desert, though it prefers the company of others.

    White: They always are in the company of an older Tomahawk. They seem to treat Scratchets as apprentices of sorts, teaching them various skills.

    Perhaps not the best, but it never hurts to toss one's hat in, amirite?

    Species:
    Desert Cub Pokemon
    Height: 2' 1" / 0.6 m
    Weight: 23.6 lbs / 10.7 kg

    Black: They store the nutrients that allow them to survive in the harsh desert climates in their fur. It is for this fur that they were once hunted close to extinction.

    White: It is thought by experts that they were once a very common sight long ago. Sighting a pack of them playing is often considered to be a sign that an ancient ruin is nearby.
