Pet Mod Paleomons - Slate 11 Submissions

Alright, it's time to announce our winners!

Beebos wins with Yizolt and Dracomizer!
:dracozolt::dedenne:
(Yi, chinese for wing / Yi qi, famous species of avian dinosaur + -zolt suffix from Dracozolt/Arctozolt)
Fossil: Fossilized Bird
Type:

Abilities: Volt Absorb, Gluttony, First Flight
*First Flight is taken from Archeops-Ancient, but just a reminder for everyone: User is considered airborne until hit by an attack; reset upon switching out.Stats: 75 | 95 | 60 | 95 | 97 | 113 [BST= 535]
Notable Moves:
Bolt Beak*, Nuzzle, Play Rough, Sucker Punch, U-turn
Flamethrower, Grass Knot, Moonblast, Thunderbolt, Volt Switch
Heal Bell, Substitute
*Bolt Beak's boost when moving first is nerfed to 1.5x
Ancient Power, Baby-Doll Eyes, Body Slam, Bolt Beak, Charge, Charm, Dazzling Gleam, Disarming Voice, Discharge, Double Kick, Drill Peck, Electro Ball, Endure, Facade, Flamethrower, Giga Impact, Grass Knot, Heal Bell, Hyper Beam, Iron Tail, Low Kick, Mega Kick, Moonblast, Nuzzle, Play Nice, Play Rough, Pluck, Protect, Rest, Rising Voltage, Round, Slam, Sleep Talk, Snore, Sucker Punch, Substitute, Taunt, Thunderbolt, Thunder Shock, Thunder Wave, Tickle, U-turn, Volt Switch, Wild Charge
Competitive Role: Leverages the Ground immunity granted by First Flight to be an effective fast pivot and unqiue Electric in the tier. Its natural high speed lets it always get the boost on Bolt Beak for consistent high damage; due to this and SD, Yizolt is most likely to go physical, but keep in mind its base SpA is the same as its Attack, has better special coverage and Moonblast, and STAB Volt Switch. Also has Nuzzle and Heal Bell for support options.
Flavor: Basically just a full body version of Dracozolt/Arctozolt's upper body. Takes more inspiration from Oviraptor than Velociraptor and related dinosaurs. Fairy typing derived mainly from Dracozolt being a silly little cheerful guy.
"Yizolt used its playful demeanor and unassuming appearance to gain the favor of larger predators, before eventually running off with their eggs. In a pinch, it could use glands on its arm feathers and beak to fire static electricity. An incomplete fossil of its head and upper body were used in unethical trials of the fossil restoration technique.
:dracovish::entei:
(Draco- prefix from Dracozolt/Dracovish + thagomizer, term for the spikes on the tail of stegosaurids)
Fossil: Fossilized Drake
Type:

Abilities: Sand Rush, Rough Skin, Solar Power
Stats: 100 | 101 | 112 | 90 | 80 | 52 [BST= 535]
Notable Moves:
Earthquake, Flare Blitz, Outrage, Scale Shot, Stone Edge, Tail Sear*
Draco Meteor, Earth Power, Fire Blast, Flamethrower
Dragon Dance, Slack Off, Spikes, Will-o-wisp
*Tail Sear
85 BP, 10/16 PP, 100 Acc | Power is boosted by 1.5x if the user goes last.
Body Slam, Breaking Swipe, Brutal Swing, Bulldoze, Draco Meteor, Dragon Claw, Dragon Dance, Dragon Pulse, Dragon Rage, Dragon Rush, Dragon Tail, Earth Power, Earthquake, Endure, Ember, Facade, Fire Blast, Flame Charge, Flamethrower, Flare Blitz, Giga Impact, High Horsepower, Hyper Beam, Incinerate, Iron Tail, Mega Kick, Meteor Beam, Outrage, Protect, Rest, Roar, Rock Tomb, Rock Slide, Round, Sand Attack, Sandstorm, Scale Shot, Slack Off, Slam, Sleep Talk, Snore, Spikes, Stomping Tantrum, Stone Edge, Sunny Day, Tail Sear, Will-O-Wisp
Competitive Role: Tbh this was the one I had the least ideas what to do with. PDef tank, can WoW and/or set Spikes, sig move gives it a consistently powerful STAB option. Dracomizer can alternatively run a DDance set, though its sweeping potential is limited by Flare Blitz and Outrage being risky STABs. Could also mixup with a special set on potential sun teams thanks to Solar Power.
Flavor: Stegosaurus-looking mon; sounds pretty generic but we really don't have a mon like that yet, closest being Bastiodon. Fire typing is based on the plates on the Stegosaurus' back possibly being used for thermoregulation - here however, it lets it shoot fire >:)
"Using the spikes on its body, Dracomizer could harness thermal energy from the sun to release fire from its mouth or tail spikes, either to defend against predators or fell trees for food. An incomplete fossil of its back feet and tail was used in unethical trials of the fossil restoration technique."
chemicalmines wins with Swishivish!
:arctovish:

And DenebStargazer takes a very convincing win with Arctobyss!
Name: Arctobyss
Typing:

Abilities: Cursed Body / Slush Rush | Permafrost
Water-type moves targeting this Pokemon become Ice-type. Being hit with an Ice-type move raises this Pokemon's Special Defense by 1 stage.
Stats: 125/65/85/100/90/75 (540)
Movepool: Ancient Power, Avalanche, Bite, Bitter Malice, Blizzard, Body Slam, Calm Mind, Crunch, Chilling Water, Defog, Endure, Facade, Flip Turn, Freeze-Dry, Giga Impact, Haze, Hydro Pump, Hyper Beam, Ice Beam, Ice Fang, Ice Spinner, Icicle Crash, Icicle Spear, Icy Wind, Meteor Beam, Powder Snow, Protect, Psychic, Psyshock, Rain Dance, Recover, Rest, Rock Blast, Rock Slide, Rock Tomb, Round, Shadow Ball, Sleep Talk, Snowscape, Snore, Stone Edge, Substitute, Surf, Weather Ball

Feel free to discuss our winners! I'm sorry it's taken so long to conclude this slate, but all of council has been busy for quite a while. For this reason, I would also like to open up council applications! If you are interested in helping to keep slates running smoothly and on time, please reach out to me here or on Discord - your help would be greatly appreciated!

The next slate will open in the near future.
 
SLATE 8 - Signs of Humanity (Sigilyph, Tauros, Conkeldurr)
:sv/sigilyph: :swsh/tauros: :swsh/conkeldurr:

Once again, we present you with an Ancient Form slate! The goal for this slate will be to create ancient versions of the mons listed above, which will follow the same rules as regional variants. The rules for submission are as follows:
  • You can sub 1 to 3 of the Pokémon chosen in this slate (reworks on existing Pre-Evolutions can also be made if you want)
  • Make sure your sub would be balanced in the current meta. Now that the meta is large enough, please be sure to justify your mon's competitive role in the sub.
  • Custom Elements are allowed, as long as they are different from already existing abilities/moves and are relatively simple to code (no custom field effects - we're learning from last gen lol. Also, if you think it's codable but our coder disagrees, then you'd better be prepared to code it yourself if it wins.)
  • Since this is an Ancient Form slate, make sure your submissions have the same BST as the original Pokémon.
  • To clarify, any Pokémon not currently in Generation 9 will instead use its Generation 8 movepool minus dexited moves (aka moves that are unusable in SV).

Role: middling speed high power special or physical attacker, forced to go scarf bc not fast enough for LO or other Choice item, and not slow enough for TR, debating if giving this CM would be too much on account of there already being a Punk Rock/Soundproof mon on here, along w several ghost types.
Flavor: the first person to ever carve out a long eucledian conch, cut its tip, and find out it made a sound, now as an elder, having mastered a rudimentary version of music!<3 wields two giant conchs, one is a horn and the other is a primitive flute. (if this wins ill do prevos)

Role: rocks setter, hazard control, sheer force breaker
Flavor: "It is thought that Conkeldurr taught humans how to make concrete more than 2,000 years ago." with this info, id assume conk would be pretty smart, hence the psychic typing. the shift from physical to special represents conk leaning on brains over brawn.

:bw/tauros:
Tauros-Brazen
Stats
: 80/105/95/35/65/110 (490 BST)
Weight: 151 kg
Typing:

Abilities: Intimidate/Reckless/Anger Point

Added Moves: Blaze Kick, Burn Up, Burning Jealousy, Ember, Fire Spin, Flame Burst, Flame Wheel, Flamethrower, Flare Blitz, Head Smash, Heat Crash, Heat Wave, Incinerate, Mystical Fire, Overheat, Supercell Slam, Will-O-Wisp

Description: Average big hitter. Normal type gives it a nice immunity from all the Ghost types roaming around, while it's Fire stabs allow it to get mons like Pesbasil, Meganium, Goldoco, and the Gourgs (while also negating the existence of Arctobyss and deleting Shivertherium) and resist the Fairy, Grass, Steel, Fire and Ice mons from the meta. Reckless is the main attractive because big damage goes brrrr. Flare Blitz and Head Smash are as spammable as they can be, but will make your HP drop in a blink of an eye, so it's always to keep these at the point of your pen. It also has a nice coverage on Eq and Supercell Slam (also getting boosted by Reckless) for other nuisances.

Flavor: This Tauros is known for being incredibly more violent than its modern counterparts. This pokemon can heat its horns to over 300 °C, turning its adversaries into ashes.
It's believed that the Blaze Breeds of Paldean Tauros were made to resemble their ancient relatives. Based on Aurochs and the Brazen Bull.
 
Name: tauros-wild
Original Pokémon:
Typing: normal/electric
Abilities: own tempo/reckless/rock head
Stats: 100/115/95/45/60/75

New Moves: supercell slam, head charge, flare blitz, head smash, thunderstruck

Thunderstruck : status, acc 100, permanently add the fire type to the target, 8pp max, ground and fire types are immune
Removed Moves:

Role: powerful walliebreakie, general annoyance
Flavor: this is a wild bull, he charge on tree and that makes fire, after years of domestication it lost the electric energy in him

:sv/sigilyph:
Name: Sigilyph-Ancient
Typing:

Abilities: Wonder Skin / Levitate | Tinted Lens
Stats: 72 / 58 / 80 / 103 / 80 / 97 [490 BST]

New Moves: Bulldoze, Earth Power, Earthquake, Mud-Slap, Petroglyph, Scorching Sands
Removed Moves: N/A

Role: Midspeed breaker with Tinted Lens to turn its acceptable offensive profile into a terrifying one. Petroglyph serves as both coverage for the Flying types that annoy it and as a Fiery Dance-type setup option.
Flavor: Since the original Sigilyph is already based on old markings (Nazca lines), I figured it would make sense for an ancient form to be based on cave paintings.

:sv/tauros:
Name: Tauros-Ancient
Typing:

Abilities: Intimidate / Thick Fat | Poison Heal
Stats: 95 / 100 / 95 / 40 / 70 / 90 [490 BST]

New Moves: Bulk Up, Stealth Rock, Thunder Wave
Removed Moves: N/A

Role: Not the flashiest change, but an effective one. Poison Heal gives Tauros a surprising amount of bulk along with terrifically strong Facades, and its insane coverage and newly-gained utility tools fill out the rest of its moveset.
Flavor: Based on the aurochs, the ancestor of modern domesticated cattle.

:sv/conkeldurr:
Name: Conkeldurr-Ancient
Typing:

Abilities: Guts / Iron Fist | Sheer Force
Stats: 105 / 140 / 85 / 55 / 75 / 45 [505 BST]

New Moves: Seed Bomb, Trailblaze, Wood Hammer, Primitive Shelter
Primitive Shelter: Grass Status, 10 PP. Raises the user's Attack and Defense one stage each and restores 12% of the user's max HP at the end of every turn for 3 turns.

Removed Moves: N/A

Role: I love bulky breakers. Does what Conk does but with a lot more longevity thanks to Primitive Shelter, though you also have to be careful since your new typing gives you a ton of new weaknesses.
Flavor: The earliest known human houses were made out of wood.
 
Last edited:
Name: Tauros-Ancestor
Original Pokémon: Tauros
Typing: Fire / Ghost
Abilities: Gorilla Tactics
Stats: 100/65/85/55/80/105

New Moves: Flare Blitz, Raging Bull (is ghost type)
Removed Moves: Outrage, Iron Head, Wild Charge, Smart Strike, Close Combat

Role: In a meta that seems to be (I haven’t played but looking at builder) heavily Fighting > Steel > Fairy > Fighting, this Mon defensively beats all of them. However, without incredible defensive stats or recovery, it’s unable to completely wall them, instead using them as an opportunity to switch in and attempt to sweep.
Flavor: Said to be an ancient, long since passed relative to the tauros we modernly know. It’s grown wildly aggressive in it’s passing, and is known to do nothing besides attack anything in sight.

Work!
Name: Tauros-Ancient
Original Pokémon: Tauros
Typing: Ground/Fighting
Abilities: Regenerator
Stats: 105 HP / 115 Atk / 115 Def / 35 SpA / 50 SpD / 70 Spe

New Moves: Combined learnsets of Taurus, Tauros-P, Tauros-PB and Taurus P-A, Stampede*, Flip Turn, Headlong Rush, Stealth Rock
Removed Moves:

Stampede: 130 BP Phys Ground 100 Acc 10PP. Hits 2 turns after being used. [Contact] flag.

*Raging Bull becomes Ground-type.

Role: physical breaker, pivot. Great Tusk at home with some region pivoting
Flavor: considered the progenitor of the Taurus line and based on the buffalo's role in the medicine wheel sacred teachings (groundedness, sheer power and abundance; represents the mineral kingdom), which explains its type, stats and ability (region gives an abundance of HP).
 
Veto time!
:bw/conkeldurr::slowbro-mega:
Name: Concheldurr (conch + elder) or Conkeldurr-Conch if not allowed
Original Pokémon: Conkeldurr
Typing:

Abilities: Pure Power / Punk Rock | Shell Armor [HA]
Stats: 100 / 55 / 55 / 105 / 115 / 75 [500 BST]

New Moves: Razor Shell, Boomburst, Hyper Voice, Sparkling Aria, Wave Crash, Aqua Jet, Surf, Scorching Sands, Bubble.
Removed Moves: Close Combat, Mach Punch, Drain Punch, Power-Up Punch, Coaching.

:trevenant::bw/sigilyph::sudowoodo:
Name: Sigilomem (sigil + omen + totem) or Sigilyph-Totem if not allowed
Original Pokémon: Sigilyph
Typing:

Abilities: Trace / Lightning Rod | Protector* [HA]
Protector*: This Pokemon's Psychic type moves ignore the Dark type immunity and do 1.25x more damage to Dark and Ghost types.
Stats: 82 / 78 / 100 / 103 / 100 / 27 [490 BST]

New Moves: Worry Seed, Morning Sun, Giga Drain, Horn Leech, Leech Seed, Wood Hammer, Absorb, Ingrain, Psychic Noise, Earthquake, Earth Power, Drill Run, Explosion, Haze, Thunder, Thunderbolt, Volt Switch, Will-O-Wisp.
Removed Moves: Dual Wingbeat, Steel Wing, Aerial Ace, Roost, Ice Beam.
To start off, this slate is for regional forms, so these mons will use that naming scheme if they win.
Second, for your Conkeldurr, Punk Rock Boomburst nukes the entire meta, and even without Boomburst, Sparkling Aria and Hyper Voice are extremely strong STABs and have limited counterplay in the current meta. council recommends removing Boomburst and nerfing SpA by 10 points.
For your Sigilyph, your custom Hidden Ability actually shares the same name as :Protector:, which may cause coding issues. Please change the Ability name to something else.

Dragon

Abilities: Levitate / Magic Guard / Dazzling

New Moves: Psychic Noise, Draco Meteor, Dragon Pulse, Dragon Tail, Outrage
Removed Moves: Toxic, Trick Room, Trick, Magic Coat, Hidden Power, Signal Beam, Ice Beam, Air Slash, Defog
Your Conkeldurr will be Sheer Force breaking the entire meta with that 140 SpA and near perfect coverage. Council recommends removing 40 points from SpA.
Sigilyph is also quite strong with Magic Guard coupled with very good offenses and more than functional STABs. Council recommends changing Magic Guard to a different (much less viable) Ability.
Name: Conkeldurr-Ancient
Original Pokémon: Conkeldurr
Typing: Normal
Abilities: Primitive / Guts / Sheer Force (HA)
This Pokémon’s moves are calculated off of its physical stat
Stats: 95/120/115/35/45/85 (505)

New Moves: Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, Hyper Voice, Psychic, Hurricane, Double Edge, Quick Attack, Stealth Rock, Slack Off
Removed Moves:
Guts-boosted Facade is a massive nuke, especially coming off a mon with such functional offenses. Council recommends removing Guts, as it seems not to be the focus of the mon.

Name: Tauros-Ancient
Original Pokémon: Tauros
Typing: Ground/Fighting
Abilities: Regenerator
Stats: 105 HP / 115 Atk / 115 Def / 35 SpA / 50 SpD / 70 Spe

New Moves: Combined learnsets of Taurus, Tauros-P, Tauros-PB and Taurus P-A, Stampede*, Flip Turn, Headlong Rush, Stealth Rock
Removed Moves:

Stampede: 130 BP Phys Ground 100 Acc 10PP. Hits 2 turns after being used. [Contact] flag.

*Raging Bull becomes Ground-type.
This completely outclasses existing mon Brawlutra, as well as being incredibly overstatted for a Regen pivot. Council recommends changing Regenerator and its typing so as not to overlap with Brawlutra.

Huge thanks to Ayecrusher King for helping to write up this post. You will have 24 hours (or however long it takes) to make these changes, and then voting will start!
