    Hammer Arm seems okay. Meteor Mash is too much, I think.

    Clefable learns MM but that's not a good vaild reason for this to learn it IMO. I only said it could/can learn them because it had the Meta arms.

    He needs to join my band. He'd be better than my back-up guitarist. :toast:

    You know, KoA's sprite kinda looks like it could be playing a keyboard. How about you fuse that one, and post a little shot of the "Bug Ice Band"?

    I love how everyone's ignoring the obvious here. Smeargle's in the Ground egg group, just like this thing seems like it'll end up.

    I am so onto it! I'll clean up the guitar while I'm at it. And your first sprite, we can make it holding a microphone!

    First off, Smeargle being in the ground group just means it can be egg moved any TMs it learns and any of its egg moves. WHOOPEE! You can combine any four of its totally amazing egg moves for a set!

    Or it doesn't matter at all......



    Secondly, here are my ideas for the physical attack that seems inevitable...I do not have names:

    Ice type Leaf Blade (Ice Punch is rather weak...)
    Ice Type Close Combat
    -before you say "NO CC!" note the words "ice type", and note that it doesn't go for super effective on Blissey.


    Basically any Ice Type attack would be great, but the Close Combat-ish one would be perfect. And before you tell me it is overpowered, it is no more overpowered than CC on Hera.


    The other options would be a physical Ice or Special Bug move just like the Draco/Overheat/Leafstorm moves. It would be pretty cool to have an attack that sharply lowers your attack, and it would be unique (all the others are special thus far)

    Well if we were to make it a gender evolution then here is the female side of it:

    Heh, good to see that this is going well. I'm not sure I want to show my sprite after seeing KOA's and DJD's sprites (Guitar solo FTW!), but I'm still quite proud of this. I still need to do the wings, but I've been getting swamped with work, so yeah. Here's my third and final position, a unique position I'm sure no other pokemon has.

    Version 3 wip:

    Version 3 final:

    Also, I voted for Physical, since it needs a more reliable physical ice attack.

    Reminds me of Lucario.

    It's so cool!

    I want Frostbite for the physical Ice move. Or a physical Ice Overheat. Ice has lots of resists so it won't be as broken as Draco Meteor.

    That's awesome and it looks like it could be holding a microphone.

    not to bitch about fly...but...not a single bug learns fly...not even the larger ones, like vespiquen or yanmega. i don't think this should get fly solely for that reason. the only bug-breeding group to get fly is FLYgon, who isn't even really a bug.

    two cents

    You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a picture of a keyboard from behing on google!!!

    Anyway, I won't do anything on the WIP until it's finalised.

    Is this a good sprite for a female side of it?

    Why don't we go ahead and get back on topic? I am sure that like 3 sprites will be taken into a poll by Cooper at the end.

    It's completely obvious you spliced it with Vespiquen, female ants/moths look nothing like that. It also looks stupid.

    Hypothermia: Special Ice move, 100 BP, 90 acc. Lowers both defenses of all Pokemon on the field.

    It doesn't need a complete makeover to be female. Something like shorter fangs or larger stomach will do.

    EDIT: I call doing the shiny. ;)

    Err, yeah. That sprite didn't lend itself so well to holding a mic... I'll re-do that later on.
    Heck, I'm inclined to re-do them all later on.

    We also could vote on which colour the shiny is. I say gold!!!
