Saharaja's shiny palette, for reference:


Main design (by Bloopyghost)

Typing: Ground
Abilities: Water Absorb/Pickpocket/Sand Spit
Stats: 50 HP / 80 Atk / 65 Def / 45 SpA / 90 SpD / 70 Spe

Name: Saharascal

Pokedex entries:

Saharascal, the Vagabond Pokémon

Sword: It distracts larger opponents by walking with an unsteady gait to feign weakness, then kicks a cloud of sand into the eyes of its foes before escaping.

Shield: When they are old enough to walk, Saharascal are left to fend for themselves in harsh desert environments. This causes them to develop a crafty personality.

Inspired by the Saharaja shiny, I gave it darker fur, purple sash/hat, and pink sand.


Identical to WIP 1, except with white sand instead of pink, since normally Saharaja's diamond is not the same color as Saharascal's sand.
WIP 1/3

This color scheme uses cooler blues and black sand - more similar in "vibes" to a shoreline than an arid desert.
WIP 2/3

This color scheme doesn't really change much about the main body, instead opting to change the reds of the hat and scarf to a cool blue and changing the sand and headdress to black.
WIP 3/3

This dark and cool color palette retains a similar color to Saharaja's shiny, with enough differences to make them stand out a bit more.

Made the hair a bit sandier-looking to convey the feeling of a careless child, made its hooves and fur darker to make it seem more like it doesn't care if it gets dirty, also made its purple stuff a different shade and the turban thing is also a bit dirtier (had to post final separately)

Final Submission

Now updated with the main sprite's revisions, as well as a golden headdress and lighter scarf/fez!
Fitting with shiny Saharaja being based off of Jafar, this guy is based off of Iago. Long live Gilbert Gottfried!
Thanks to the CAP discord for being patient and providing feedback!

Final Submission

In Denile

I mentioned this on 'cord but just in case, Saharascal's back sprite has been updated to include hoof shading and fixes to the tail to better match the front sprite. Be sure to use the updated sprites in the OP when making your final subs, which end in about a day! (Sorry for the last minute fix btw, been busy '-.-)
