    Naw don't ruin the pure awesomeness of farfetch'd. what he needs is a stat boost not an evo...

    anyways nice program go for it

    lol @ arceus evo tier that sounds really boring

    What we do need is a friggin baby kangaskan! how can you be born into existence with a baby in your pouch??

    ^ That and baby Miltank/Taruos.

    We need an Legendary duo that's Latios/Latias parents. A grown Male and Female version of them or something.

    I think this would be interesting, but my point of view tends to vary slightly from many others'. What I mean by that is that I play UU (sometimes BL) and below, so I actually like trying to use things whose stat totals don't reach the 500-mark. But since few people are willing to design things like that, I don't know how much I'd enjoy it.

    If there was an audience for a fantasy-UU league, though, I would be happy to contribute (I can remember an invented Pokemon or two from my childhood playing Pokemon Yellow).

    What I'd really like to see:

    Farfetch'd evolution.

    Tauros evolution.

    Pinser evolution.

    Is that really to much to ask? I mean come on, first gen pokemon that are still getting the shaft a decade later...

    I went through this topic all again searching for a fanart someone made of a perfect Farfecth'd evo, but didn't found it >_> Did someone have a link to that?

    Miltank and Tauros really seem like they should be related, even though they're not similar Pokemon. Still, it wouldn't be unreasonable to connect them, similar to what Tyrogue did.

    This is true. Also it seems that jynx might need an evo to fit in with the RBY humanshape club (Magmar,Electabuzz). Edit: How do they seem unrelated? Miltank is a cow and Tauros is a bull. Or at least that's what I see.

    The only thing I could think of would be their movepools. I'm not very familiar with either Pokemon, so I'm not sure how different they are.

    If the grand scheme of the program is to come to a new pokemon through voting, wouldn't everything be significant? Obviously there wouldn't be polls on trivial things like weight/height (unless Low Kick becomes ridiculously overused...), but creature type, ability, and stats are very important.

    The only hard part I see is deciding on things like movepool and ability. I'll ultimately want the new pokemon to have it's own signature move, so I'll suggest a few effects. But people will undoubtably have their own, so those will be hard to judge. Movepool is intimidating, but will most likely be decided by how the pokemon is supposed to work (staller, sweeper, etc.). So I don't know where you're coming from, Great Sage.

    Any idea on concept art for final creatures? I'd love to draw some original Pokes.

    At this point it really depends on how the program turns out, but I'd love to have original art for the pokemon. Though what I may do is in the end, if I still have the patience to deal with polls, I'll take a book from Wizards of the Coast and have all potential artists submit examples of their best works and have people vote on who designs the pokemon art.

    I would think that things like height and weight would follow from the physical description of the Pokemon when it is first suggested, so it shouldn't be much of an issue, anyway.

    Alright. It's been a while since I did good quality recreational art. I'd love to be able to use my Copics again.

    How would this work exactly? If we're just "creating" Pokemon that don't exist, is there going to be some special battle simulator made for this? And if so, who is going to make it? I mean, I can understand augmenting/changing existing Pokemon, since that can pretty much just be done via Pokesav (stat edits, moves, ability), but I don't really understand how this would work is I guess what I'm saying.

    Let me find that post. I was the one who posted that in the topic.

    EDIT: Found the post and found the picture (unless you're referring to another Farfetch'd evolution, but I'm pretty sure that was the only one in that topic).

    I've loved these,I doodled some when I was bored.I could definitely make some.Oh,there are some great drawings in the Smeargle Studio.Someone made a full set of their own starts,and stuff.I really want a cool Ghost/Steel type with Levitate.That would be awesome,and would mess up some stuff.

    It has a bazillion resistances,spikes resist,stealth rock resist,toxic spike resist,rapid spin resist,and it could have stats like this,or something close.

    95/80/115/85/100/55

    It would be a freaking b*tch to take down.One of the few pokemon that would have a decent special defense,can get 384 HP,good defense,decent attack,and great low speed for Gyro Ball.

    Sounds broken,so maybe..

    EXACTLY that picture, thanks. Now you see, Mr. Goodbar, creating a good Farfetch'd evolution is 100% possible. And it's its only way to boost its stats, anyway...

    It wouldn't be actually making a pokemon (it's possible that someone could do this, changing everything about an existing pokemon except for the picture), it would be designing one. The point of the program would be to design everything about a new pokemon, then possibly submitting it to GameFreak (if possible). However, the program is really just a way to have fun while creating a pokemon that could feasibly exist.

    dude, like half of the pokemon you made up are extrememly broken. im all up for making new pokemon, but we have to make some average ones, or UU pokemon, not all top tier OU pokemon like these would be.

    there is no way that there can be a electric/poison or steel/poison pokemon with levitate AND have ridiculous 110/90/100 and 100/110/110 defensives respectively. they would be ridiculously powerful, making skarmory and cresselia look like magikarp shit

    ^No offense, but those sorts of posts are exactly what I'm trying to avoid with this program. People randomly shouting out pokemon they have thought of, and judging by several of your pokemon, with little regard for the metagame and the term "broken," does not accomplish much and leads to posts like the above, in which someone just beats you down. Hence my call for organized poll options in which people and discuss.
