Agile Turtle

formerly aqueous tortoise
Final Submission


Crotalus is a genus of rattlesnakes. Malus is a genus of apples. CAP5 is a rattlesnake with an apple rattle, so it makes sense.

Pronounced: krote-MAL-us
IPA: kroʊtˈmæləs

A combination of "evil" + "serpent" + "Genesis".

Pronounced: "vi-SIR-nih-sus"
IPA: vɪsɝnɪsɪs

I really just took it from the sentence; the evil serpent from genesis. Sorry to bring religion into this, but I just can't look at this Pokemon and not think of the garden of Eden (which is in the book of Genesis). The snake (serpent) in the story tempts Eve with an apple from the forbidden tree for those who don't know the story. It sounds pretty "evil" to me, and the design of this Pokemon is pretty sinister looking in the first place, not to mention the golden apple on its tail. The artist just screams "the evil snake from the book of genesis" and I wouldn't be surprised if he/she was inspired by it. I just based my submission fully on this Pokemon's design.

Good luck everyone!

Illecebra + Cobra

Pronounced Ill - Coh - Brah
IPA: ɪlcoʊbra:

Illecebra is the Latin word for Temptation or enticement, what I did with it was fairly obvious!

Serpent + Turpitude. (A serpent is a synonym for snake and turpitude is the legal designation for actions which run contrary to the good morals of society; in a way which is wicked, base and/or vile)

Pronounced: "SUR-pi-tood"
IPA: ˈsɜr

I really just liked it better than my othe creations. "Tantaliez" just seemed to focus too much on the apple temptaton and on no other aspect of its character. "Tantalivy" didn't seem to improve that name much at all either since it didn't roll off the tongue as well, and it seemed to emphasize its grass-typing in a completely unneeded way. "Hissidious" just evoked the word "hideous" rather than Hiss+insidious, and tat completely threw off the meaning.

And besides that, "Sertempt" and "Serpentice" were already taken :P

Thistle + Hiss

Pronounced: "this-soul"
IPA: ðɪsʉl

I really didn't wanna do a hiss related name, but then I went to the store today and walked by the cacti for sale there and one of the bastards stuck me with their thistles and I made a "ssssss" sound in pain, so I felt this was a very fitting name. Especially considering the spines around CaP's body and the malevolent connotation the word "hiss" brings to mind.

Also I have no idea if I did the IPA thing right? That whole thing confused the hell out of me.


Look at my shiny CT!
Final Submission


Pronounced "tel-TAYL"
A tell is a hint or clue something isn't true, and shows our snake's duplicitous nature. A tale is also a euphemism for a myth or lie.

Our snake actually has a telltale smirk, showing something isn't right with that tempting apple.

However, it also works in another sense: The folk hero William Tell was famous for shooting an apple, which our snake happens to have on his tail. Literally, a "Telltail."
Final Submisssion


Wrap + Rapture

This Pokémon wraps its prey after ambushing them; Rapture has Biblical connotations (death), can mean “kidnapping,” and can mean “ecstasy” (smell of the fruit).

Pronounced: RAP-cher
IPA: ˈræptʃər
