Day 75: Ice/Bug
Saskrab -> Kryptacian
This astonishingly rare Pokémon is thought to be the descendant of an ancient Bug-type Pokémon that had somehow become stranded far up in the northern arctic wilderness. Rather than fall victim to the fierce chill, it adapted, growing a thick fur coat in response. The hair covering Saskrab’s body glistens like freshly fallen snow, and in a snowy climate, it becomes practically invisible, making it very difficult for predators and trainers alike to find it.
Upon evolving, Kryptacian bizarrely seems to take on a humanoid appearance. In spite of its newfound bulk, it remains just as stealthy as its previous form. Attempted photographs of this Pokémon turn up as blurry messes, and its footsteps fade away quickly in the snow. As a result, all sort of strange rumors and myth have spread about this Pokémon. Some say that they are just as intelligent as humans, if not more so, and they actually have their own civilization far up in the arctic wilderness. However, this story has never been officially confirmed, and it is unknown just how much of it is truthful.
Saskrab and Kryptacian are based on yeti crabs, actual yeti, and on the Japanese macaque. Their standard ability is Snow Cloak, and their hidden ability is Magic Guard.

perfect

It makes me think of the Mi-Go from Lovecraft….

Day 120: Bug/Dark
Meurgot -> Scaravera
The curiously ornate skull-like patterns that cover Scaravera’s shell can paralyze people with fear. When a Scaravera senses danger, it will click its shell together, bringing attention to itself with a noise like the rattling of bones, before raising its shell up to freeze and neutralize the threat. People in olden times people would take advantage of this ability by collecting their shed carapaces to use as masks for hunting and for protection. This practice eventually evolved into a sort of holiday where people don Scaravera masks in order to try and build up a resistance to their paralytic effects, and the remains of ancient Scaravera show that they have, over time, grown increasingly more terrifying shells in response.
Wild Scaravera lay their eggs inside of discarded skulls, which young Meurgot use as protection as they grow. For this reason this Pokémon can often be seen feuding with wild Cubone, as they are in direct competition for skeletal resources.
Scaravera are inspired by sugar skulls (calaveras de azúcar) as well as scarab beetles. Thanks to Adam for helping with the names and flavor. And thanks to everyone for following our project! It’s been fun, but we’ve now officially run through the list of unused Pokémon types twice and it’s time to call it a rest. (Stay tuned, Adam will write more on that tomorrow!)

Everyone go congratulate boltbeam on their amazing accomplishment!!!

The Swedish painter Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was the first artist, to paint an abstract picture in 1906.

These are great. Would love to do a quilt.

Chancho Oscuro by *darksilvania
It’s been so long since we’ve heard from darksilvania I’m posting a fusion they made. Spoink/Houndoor and Grumpig/Houndoom!

This may be my favorite fakemon of all time. I love the color palette and the over-the-top design.
