Colossoil's Pokedex entries, for reference:

Colossoil, the Drill Whale Pokémon

Diamond: Its drills are also powerful sensory organs. It can detect its prey from a mile below the surface.

Pearl: COLOSSOIL is notorious for its brutality. What isn't crushed to bits by its drills is torn apart in its jaws.

Platinum: Males engage in fierce battles with each other for territory. The more scars it has, the older it is.

These Pokedex entries must be written in the format of Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. This means that the word and character limits must match those from those games, and Pokemon names must be in all capital letters. Otherwise, we will be using modern Pokedex Submission rules.

Legal Pokedex submissions must meet the following standards:
  • Species Names cannot be over 11 characters.
  • Pokedex Entries must have flawless grammar. Smogon has a Grammar & Prose team that will help identify mistakes.

Work In Progress (WIP) Pokedex Entries can be posted at any time for comments from the community.

No more than three WIP Pokedex Entries can be posted by any individual person through the entire course of the submission thread. This limit applies to ALL posts made by a single person, even if previous posts are edited or deleted. This limit is intended to curb the tendency for some submitters to spam the thread repeatedly with multiple Pokedex Entries. This detracts from other submissions and makes it difficult for commenters to survey the submission thread.

Do not bump your WIP Pokedex Entries by posting them repeatedly, or making minor wording changes. Bumping will result in the disqualification of all Pokedex Entries by the offender. Editing or deleting bump posts will not prevent disqualification.

Only ONE Final Submission can be made per person.

Pokedex entries Final Submissions must posted exactly in the following format and in the following exact order:
  • The first line of the post must have the words "Final Submission" in bold on its own line. No other text may be included before the bold heading.
  • A blank line
  • "<Pokémon Name>, the <Species Name> Pokémon", with the Pokemon name and the Species Name in bold
  • A blank line
  • The Diamond Pokedex Entry submission. Start with the letters "Diamond" in bold, then a colon (:), and then the Pokedex entry.
  • A blank line
  • The Pearl Pokedex Entry submission. Start with the letters "Pearl" in bold, then a colon (:), and then the Pokedex entry.
  • A blank line
  • The Platinum Pokedex Entry submission. Start with the letters "Platinum" in bold, then a colon (:), and then the Pokedex entry.
Below the Final Submission you can post other comments, explanations, etc.

Final Submission

Dorsoil
, the Sand Borer Pokémon

Diamond: DORSOIL are often seen playfighting with each other. The males tend to take things too far though.

Pearl: Its blowhole operates as both a means to remove dirt it ingests while digging and as a weapon.

Platinum: DORSOIL aren't very good at digging deep tunnels, and are thus reliant on COLOSSOIL to lead them.

Dorsoil
, the Land Beluga Pokémon

Pearl: It burrows underneath prey, then springs out of the ground to attack. If challenged, it will dig to escape.

Platinum: DORSOIL prefer sand and softer dirt to practice their digging. They move to harder earth as they develop.

Dorsoil

Diamond: DORSOIL are said to appear before lost travellers and guide them back towards civilisation.

Dorsoil
, the Sand Calf Pokémon

Diamond: Its skin is pale because it almost never sees sunlight. It spends most of its time sulking underground.

Pearl: It digs a path underground but avoids civilization. It knows exactly what's directly above on the surface.

Platinum: It eats dirt for nutrients and converts the rest into fine sand. It blows sand wildly when aggravated.


I wanted to give it a little bit of a sullen/loner streak, so it makes sense when it turns into the brutal Colossoil.
