For now, let's work on the concepts we already have, instead of giving more and more ideas. I think we should get at least 1/3 of the concepts we have now sprited before we add more ideas. Thanks!

Hello, and welcome to Project: Communitydex! I'm sure many of you are aware that the Pixel Art section is really inactive. Hopefully, this community project will help reboot the activity here. As hinted in the name, the Communitydex is a project in which you, the members of PokéCommunity, come together, and give ideas, and eventually create, various fake Pokémon sprites to make a fake Pokédex, consisting of work by us, for us.

Don't be worried if you don't think your skills are up to scratch, if you have a concept for a Pokémon you would like to bring forward, then please do so! Hopefully then, one of the more skilled pixellers will take up your ideas and work on it.

No ideas are "stupid" (well, within reason, at least), but if some seem impractical or too similar to pre-existing Pokémon, for example, then please feel free to contribute to the ideas given. Others will be allowed to tweak sprites made by members, but please make sure you try to stick to the original design as much as possible.

We aren't going to follow any 'rules,' per se, however if you feel we need to keep the tradition of, for example, a 3-stage bug evolutionary line, then feel free to contribute. However, it would be logical to stick to having starter Pokémon and region legendaries, though I'm not totally sure about the latter idea, anyway.

I suppose this is enough for the introduction, onto the Pokédex so far...

It has a blue marking on each of it's four stout, stubby little legs. It has a jagged razor blade as a tail, but one side of it is stuck to it's rear/back part of it's body, leaving just the blade sticking out, giving Blaydyte the inability to swish it's tail. Blaydyte has a small blunt horn on it's forehead, used for shaving off treebark, it's staple diet. Blaydyte then sits on the treebark to cut it into bite-sized pieces. All of Blaydyte's attacks are attack based, and are carried out with its bladetail, so it looks really wierd, as the opponent sees the rear end of the pokemon flying at them. It's horn is unsuitable for combat. One thing is sure: You don't want this pokemon sitting on you.
