    Because we've got no news to speculate upon, and we're talking animals that should be pokemon, indulge my nerdy fantasies for a minute :nerd: If you don't have a minute, just look at the pictures. and you'll get the idea

    Two pokemon I'd love to see:

    a Binturong (aka. bearcat) based pokemon. One of my favorite animals. Could easily see it evolving from an eye eye or other tree dwelling nocturnal based pokemon. They use their prehensile tails (which are thick as a root) to both climb from tree to tree and communicate. Apparently they smell like popcorn (which even sounds like pokedex flavour text) Related to the civet family, these guys are essentially easy going ominiverous big cats

    Dark type anyone?

    And a strangler fig based pokemon. Reason being: Gamefreak loves giving us aggressive plants; the strangler fig is as aggressive as they come. They start as seeds, quickly sprout into vines and then grow large enough to swallow entire trees, bolders and buildings. A single strangler fig can engulf multiple trees, so that what looks like a forest, is infact just one plant, that has basically eaten all the others. This is a picture of one spreading over a ruin - I could see something like this in design, but with the roots twisting around holes, to look like eye sockets, giving the whole thing the appearance of a skull. (edit - if you look up and to the right of the doorway (mouth) it already looks like its got a closed eye, kinda like its yawning...) Grass Dark (or rock) with regenerator?

    The cool thing is how these two life forms interact in real life:

    The Binturong is a well-known disributor of the fig's seeds, because it often choses to sleep in the branches of the strangler, and eat its fig fruit. The seeds whithin the fruit actually benefit from passing through the binturong's hardy gut, because they're covered in a husk that needs dissolving before they can grow (ensuring that they only grow after being transported far away from the orginal tree by the binturong). And you could imagine that the strangler fig's fruit also attract the omnivorous binturong's prey of birds, frogs and bugs and even snakes. Its the perfect partnership.
    I like to see natural relationships between different pokemon, and I think this is potentially a really cool and sinister one. Together they could take over an entire forest!

    Hmm... The bearcat kinda looks like Skuntank...
    The strangler fig could make an awesome Carnivine evolution, though!

    I really really really hope for a Surskit alternate evolution that keeps the Bug/Water typing.
    Other pokemon that I want to see evlutions of are Solrock/Lunatone/Druddigon/Durant/Tropius.

    While we're on the subject of animals/things we'd like to see made into Pokemon...

    Show Hide

    [​IMG]

    Mantis Shrimp. Water/Fighting. 125 to 150-ish Attack, and every single physical priority move in the game. As for ability... I would say Huge Power, but that would be so broken lol. Maybe something like Iron Fist?

    Show Hide

    [​IMG]

    Sasquatch. Normal/Grass. Abilities would be Stench/Run Away/Intimidate. Probably have high Attack and decent Speed.

    Show Hide

    [​IMG]

    Mimic octopus. Water/Psychic. Most likely have good SpA, SpD and Spd, and pathetic HP, Atk, and Def. Ability would either be Impostor or Illusion.

    So yeah, just a few ideas.

    Steelide
    Steel / Dragon

    Evolved form of Steelix using Trade + Metal Armor (This is still possible cuz of Porygon)
    Stats: 90 / 120 / 200 / 63 / 92 / 25 (Total BST = 600)
    Ability: Sturdy / Iron Chest (Boost SDef 30% in sand) / Sheer Force (DW)
    Tier: OU (cuz of speed)

    Steelide @ Life Orb | Sheer Force
    Adamant | 60 HP / 252 Atk / 196 SDef
    Moves?

    Lol, this would be boss with defense set or offensive destruction unpredictabilty. Counters: Ghost-types
    Checks: Aura Sphere Togekiss, Earth Power Landorus, anything with special super-effective move, choice specs too

    ok this is fake but cool

    I think it's better that there are a lot of very good and very bad pokémon. Without the large difference between good and bad and the shit tons of useless utilitymons like Unown, Delibird, Dunsparce, Ledyba, Cherrim, Farfetche'd, I think the game would be rather dull

    Turning Steelix into Red-Eyes black Metal Dragon doesn't make any sense.

    I would like these things/animals to become Pokémon:

    Show Hide
    [​IMG]

    We need a sponge-based Pokémon. That's it. I was thinking of a Water/Grass with Water Absorb; though an immunity to a type you already is 4x weak seems redundant, it is fitting to the nature of a sponge; to absorb water. inb4 spongebob puns


    Show Hide
    [​IMG]

    Who besides me want a genie/djinn-based Pokémon? No, I am not speaking of Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus. Despite the jokes about them being genies, will all know that they are kamis (although I deeply think that they are somewhat genie-based). Still, we need a pokémon that is really based on a genie, with With on its moveset. I was thinking of a Steel-Psychic with high special defense, but it would become too Jirachi-esque. However, to differentiate itself from Jirachi, it could have a larger special movepool, better Special Attack, and worse Speed. These are all ideas that I had.

    I always had a deep wish about a Pokémon based on a cockatiel. Maybe something like a mythical cockatiel with a Flying-typing with Fire, Electric, or Normal as primary type, with high speed and Special Attack. It could be made as an evolution for Chatot (which is based on a lovebird, an species related to cockatiels).


    Finally:

    Don't ask me why, but I've always wanted a Pokémon based on a pop singer (don't also ask me why I've chosen this photo).

    A sponge would be awesome. Give it high Sp.def too.

    A psychic type Lamp mon would be cool.

    Type diversity amongst flying types is always welcome.

    An argument could be made for Meloetta.

    Digging those ideas, DFA. I also would love a Chatot evo so the cockatiel sounds great. As for the water/grass sponge, Storm Drain or better yet, Regenerator would be good fits. Sponges can reproduce via budding so it makes sense.

    Serebii says that the event Mewtwo may have optimal IVs. Would they give it a set nature if they're giving away an ideally powerful Pokemon?

    To keep this tied in to Gen 6, what kinds of new Pokemon should make for a good event giveaway?

    Anyone else notice that Mewtwo is carrying Heal Pulse as well? I don't think it normally learns that. Might be fun for VGC.

    Don't know if it was brought up, found this on pokememes today ( I know it's abysmal place for a 'news'' source but hey it's a talking point isn't it? And I haven't really searched anywhere else. ) Since it's hard to go through 300 pages I've only gone through the last few and I didn't see mention of this.

    [​IMG]


    It oddly enough goes with the "leak" we had a few weeks ago that spoke of prevos of heracross (criss cross iirc) and pinsir as well as other things such as Houndoomed etc..

    IDK, I think it's pretty likely to be fake.

    Though if we do get hera and pinsir prevos I think they are should also give us evos. I never really understood making baby pokemon to something and then not giving it a more evolved form as well.

    It's explicitly fake, the faker tried to pass it off as real on serebii a day or two ago and was debunked by like everyone

    One thing i really want to see this Gen is a new Gym Leader system. I feel like every game has tried to improve on Gym Leaders, as they are the secondary drive of the game. I know type gimmicks are the big thing, but the first gym in BLW had the Lilpup/changing type of gym. It really makes me want Gym Leaders based off the area they are in, like the cream of the crop for the area. This will make you use more Pokemon to battle them the farther ingame you go, but also give you an easier way to grind against these kinds of Pokemon. The new Gym Leaders in BLW2 really bored me. Cheren, Roxie and Mako Tsunami were absolute push overs, even though they had potential to be cooler characters (Roxie especially). It makes it easier to design their character development too (again, looking at Roxie especially).

    Also, Pinsir prevo is gross, Hera prevo is :3. Obviously fake, but i want that little Hera now :D

    I think a fun way to make the Gyms more challenging would be a rule that you can only use the same amount of Pokemon that the Gym leader uses. It could potentially actually make Gyms a difficult challenge for a change.

    @Master of the Six Kings: They already have been masters of the surrounding area. Brawly trains Fighting pokemon found in Granite Cave, Wattson trains Electric pokemon in an area saturated with wild Electrike and trainers with Magneton, Flannery trains Fire pokemon on a mountain covered in Numel and Magcargo and whatnot... it goes on. It actually makes the gym leaders really easy, since your team is already used to fighting that type.

    I use the same number of Pokemon as the gym leader (and only two items) during my Nuzlocke runs, and it makes things a whole lot more exciting. Taking on Tate and Liza in a double battle without any possibility of switching was one of the best gym battles I've ever had.
