Now let's take a look at all of these horrible Fakemon our favorite creatures from one of the worst best games ever made.

Bonus Chapter #2 - Fakemon Encyclopedia
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A / S - Outstanding

B - Good

C - Average

D - Below par

F – Unacceptable

E / SSS – Non-applicable / Joke

Some oddities:

Lickitung is replaced with a bigger version of the Meteor/Dragon Trainer sprite with solid red eyes for some reason. Despite not being obtainable, Shinigami, Stitcher and Miasmar have altered backsprites (In the case of Shinigami and Stitcher, it’s literally their front sprite repurposed as a back sprite).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fakemons #1-30:

Spoiler:


#1: Vivosaur Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Venusaur Family
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No (as in, replaces a slot of an existing Pokemon)
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Boilbasaur -> Shrivelsaur -> Vivosaur
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Durathror (If female) / Vile (If male)
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Bloodpuppets Battle
  • My score of them overall: C
    • Reason: In terms of design, the Vivosaur Family is just a color swap with empty black eyes and some blood. They’re not that scary or hard to deal with, especially if you have a good Psychic, Flying or Fire type.
#2: Dragon Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Charizard Family
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: (Rotmander & Charmeworm) / (Dragon)
  • Evolution Line: Rotmander -> Charmeworm -> Dragon
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Shenron
  • Miscellaneous: Dragon has almost the same color palette as Rotmander despite not being a zombie. Dragon is also not counted as a zombie as they are in Meteor's service... despite looking nothing like the rest of their species.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of them overall: C
    • Reason: Although Charmeworm is cool looking, they’re not that interesting aside from that. They were also major pains to deal with as they usually wound up being just strong enough to be an issue but not enough to be an actual threat.
    • Dragon in particular knows moves such as Flamethrower (named Fire Pump) among others that can ruin your day.
#3: Bleedtoise Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Blastoise Family
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: Oozle -> Entrailtle -> Bleedtoise
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Cagnazzo
  • Miscellaneous: I hate these puns. That and I don't think we ever saw a Bleedtoise in this entire game, funnily enough.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Bellyache Boss Battle
  • My score of them overall: C
    • Reason: I seriously question this. Aren’t zombies weak to water? Or does that only just apply to human corpses? Then again, the family’s called Bleedtoise so they might be shooting something much worse now.
    • That aside, I think they’re… alright but they shouldn’t be that hard to deal with if you have an Electric type or vice versa. I don’t like how the coloring is inconsistent between the evolutions – Oozle is the biggest offender of this because it straight up looks like caramel to me.
#4: Shinigami
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Gallade
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Caterpie (I muk you not.)
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie (... not really, but he's with their group, so)
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Louis
  • Miscellaneous: Despite clearly being a ghostly Gallade, it is not Ghost type. This bugs me.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Megaman X5 – Sigma 1st
  • My score of it overall: S
    • Reason: Shinigami is probably one of the best looking Fakemon in the entire hack. I refuse to believe Cutlerine was the one who designed this badass. Not only that, I'm actually really fond of Gallade in general, so if I could get one I would definitely have a spot for him. If you try to hack one into your team, though, they're pretty much going to act like Caterpie (it doesn't have an edited menu sprite and his back sprite is just his front sprite but just re-used).
#5: Stitcher
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Lati Duo
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Metapod
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Janus (Male head) / Schala (Female head)
  • Miscellaneous: Due to this being a combination of both Latios (always male) and Latias (always female), it has no definite gender.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Megaman X5 – Sigma 1st
  • My score of them overall: A
    • Reason: This idea is so ingenious that I’m amazed Cutlerine even put it in. It’s the same deal with Shinigami. Stitcher is such a cool design too due to it being both Latis put together. However, if you have a good special tank and Calm Mind then they're no threat at all.
#6: Antispiral
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Another Gurren Lagann reference
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Butterfree
  • Fakemon Type: Pallate swap
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: I probably won't.
  • Miscellaneous: I find it strange that despite being the "evil" version of Zangol, it's still the same typing.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: I’m not quite sure what to make about Antispiral. It’s the same type and the same basic design as Zangol, so it’s just a pallate swap. I know it’s a reference to Gurren Lagann to fit Zangol being Kamina, but I’m not really… that interested in it?
#7: "Ute" Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept...?
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Weedle, Kakuna & Beedrill
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing serious.
  • Miscellaneous: I have no idea where these are in the game. Not that it matters, given how useless they are.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of them overall: F
    • Reason: What the hell even are these things? Given how they never appeared in the game proper (or are horribly obscure), I just have to assume they were made as a joke. They have horrible stats and equally impressive sprites, so make of them what you will. I swear to god though, if they’re a reference to the Noot Noot penguin, I’m slapping da muk out of Cutlerine.
#8: Fungasu
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Telefang monster
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Pidgey
  • Fakemon Type: Ripped from another game
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: When you catch any Telefang monster, their Pokedex entry just says “Error 623 – Creature is not a Pokemon”. I thought that would be worth a mention.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Digimon World Dusk – Battle 3
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: Fungasu is easily the most deceptive monster in the entire game. It looks like a bulky and slow type, yet is a fast and strong type armed with Speed Boost of all things. Despite this, they shouldn't be hard to deal with even if you don't know their typing.
#9: Nigera
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Telefang monster
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Pidgeotto
  • Fakemon Type: Ripped from another game
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing, really
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Digimon World Dusk – Battle 3
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: While from a design standpoint this thing is kind of funky looking, its stats are tremendous. It’s far more powerful than Fungasu or any of the other Denjuu, which I find kind of strange. I guess the Water typing comes from the fact it’s like a… sea urchin thing?
#10: Goosuboa
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Telefang monster
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Pidgeot
  • Fakemon Type: Ripped from another game
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: Since it is Ghost / Dark, it has no weaknesses.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Digimon World Dusk – Battle 3
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: It’s an evil ghost warthog. Design aside, it’s not that much better than its Telefang companions when it comes to stats.
#11: Ramshaker Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Rattata (Ramshaker), Salamence (Calfby)
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line:
    • Calfby -> Tauros (Atk > Def)
    • Calfby -> Miltank (Def > Atk)
    • Calfby -> Ramshaker (Atk = Def)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Minos
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Chrono Trigger - Boss Battle 2
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: I hate this thing. It may not have the best spritework, but it’s a bit easy to forget about that when this thing is crushing your bones with psychic powers. It has balanced stats all around except for Special Defense which is super high. It’s also a bit unreasonable to get a Ramshaker considering Attack and Defense need to be equal.
#12: Sevicious
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Evolution of Seviper
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Ekans
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of existing Pokemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Seviper -> Sevicious (Level 55)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Inspired
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Kingdom Hearts - The Deep End
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: I’m really digging this evolution design. It looks badass and honestly the name always gets to me. Sevicious are also pretty strong, and the Dark typing makes them unreasonable to fight with Psychics. I know I was definitely caught off guard the first time I sent Bellamine at one.
#13: Zangol
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Evolution of Zangoose + Kamina
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Arbok
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of existing Pokemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Zangoose -> Zangol (Level 55)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Valor
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Valor has his own, thanks.
  • My score of it overall: A
    • Reason: Zangol is the manliest goddamn Pokemon this side of Gallade and Machamp. It even says so on their Pokedex entry. The design is as badass as Shinigami and the Gurren Lagann influence helps quite a bit. Plus it gives Zangoose some much needed respect.
#14: A Monster
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Frankenstein's Monster, obviously
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Venomoth
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Chimera
  • Miscellaneous: Despite being a mash-up of various Pokemon of varying genders, it’s still counted as male or female. Interesting. It also has a Pokedex entry despite never actually being obtainable. The pure typing makes it so that it has no weaknesses period.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Mother 3 - Wasteful Anthem
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: By far one of the strangest and most gruesome Fakemon in this hack but also one of the most interesting. It’s said to be a mash-up of 11 different Pokemon, and it shows. It has ridiculously high stats and there’s only one in the entire game, making it one of the most unique (if completely senseless) Fakemon. Also, where did the Kyogre part come from? The fact that Rayquaza’s dead all of a sudden doesn’t help.
#15: Gigawolf
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: It's literally Zoroark.
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Diglett
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of existing Pokemon
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: Poochyena -> Mightyena -> Gigawolf (Max Happiness)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Beowulf
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: I don't know, really.
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: I love the Zoroark family in general. The fact they’re in this game is pretty rad, even if they shouldn’t be called Gigawolf. Although how Mighyena evolves into another existing Pokemon is beyond me. I mean, this hack was made in 2010 - Black and White weren’t even released to the states yet.
    • Seriously, I need to know why he called it Gigawolf while everybody else has accurate names. Was it because of one of the movies that came out before the games?
#16: Galactimon
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Evolution of Solrock/Lunatone
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Dugtrio
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of existing Pokemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line:
    • Solrock + Moon Stone -> Galactimon
    • Lunatone + Moon Stone -> Galactimon
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Cosmos
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Kirby and the Amazing Mirror – Dark Mind
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: There’s a lot of love going around for the Pokemon that don’t get that much recognition in the real games. Galactimon has some pretty well-rounded stats and it honestly reminds me of a certain Kirby final boss.
#17: Rotting
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Slaking
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Mankey
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: Rotting and Gorelax are the only Zombie Pokemon that don’t replace their living counterparts.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 3 – Cannibal Boss
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Jesus Christ, look at this guy. He got messed up something fierce. Since they're a zombified version of Slaking, they have all of the same stats but doesn’t have Truant. That’s just a disaster waiting to happen. It’s a disgusting edit and all, but I definitely question how the headless zombies even function.
#18: Poliwraith Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Yeah, you know.
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: Polihag -> Poliworm -> Poliwraith
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Bloop
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Bellyache Boss Battle
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: I don’t even know what to say. They’re just evil pallate swaps much like the other weaker zombies. A good Electric or Psychic type should be able to take them out easily.
#19: Kuriputo
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Telefang monster
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Bellsprout
  • Fakemon Type: Ripped from another game
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Sandslash (ho ho)
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Digimon World Dusk – Battle 3
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: Kuriputo is Grass despite its very Sandslash-looking appearance. It has some good attack and defense, but it’s not that hard to get rid of. Just don’t get tripped up by how it looks.
#20: Roodanse
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Telefang monster
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Weepinbell
  • Fakemon Type: Ripped from another game
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Cyclone
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Digimon World Dusk – Battle 3
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: It’s an evil tornado monster. It has good Attack and a god-like Speed stat coupled with Speed Boost, but it’s not very sturdy. An Electric type should be able to take it out no problem.
#21: Ooshe
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Telefang monster
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Victrebell
  • Fakemon Type: Ripped from another game
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Curry
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Digimon World Dusk – Battle 3
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: Ooshe is some kind of armadillo creature. The perspective on it makes it look really weird, but trust me when I say that it is a four-legged animal. It’s got some good, balanced stats but not that remarkable otherwise.
#22: Qwilshark
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Evolution of Qwilfish
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Tentacruel
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of an existing Pokemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Qwilfish -> Qwilshark (Level 33)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Ballin’
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Green Scream - Darkstalkers 3
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Qwilfish has always been one of those Pokemon that I just forgot existed. To see it get this badass evolution definitely improved it in my eyes. Qwilshark has great Attack and Speed, and is said to be a rival to Gyarados. Not quite sure how a pufferfish evolved into a sea serpent shark, but I still love it. Despite this, however, Qwilshark's offense is held back a bit when you realize that Water is Special in Gen 3, with Qwilshark being primarily physical fighters...
#23: Dragoone
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Evolution of Linoone
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Farfetch'd
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of an existing Pokemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Zigzagoon -> Linoone -> Dragoone (Level 41)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Zagon
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Green Scream - Darkstalkers 3
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Dragoone was pretty unexpected. On top of getting the Dragon type, it has a monstrous 178 (!!) Special Defense! Dragoone could weather more deadly Special Attacks than Blissey, and is much stronger to boot. A shame that all it can learn are HMs and that it looks like a Rayquaza reskin.
#24: Yuck Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Muk Family
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Moulder -> Yuck (Level 38)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Master Belch
  • Miscellaneous: Is one of the two obtainable zombies in the game.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – The Sewer
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: That’s absolutely disgusting, but I love it. Moulder is bleh, but Yuck is a bit more than a palette swap cause it’s actually eating a person. Even when Moulder evolves it still gets a person inside. It’s weird.
#25: Roclobster
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: The Rock Lobster song, of course.
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Kanghaskhan
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: B-52
  • Miscellaneous: You can find it in the divable spot at Dewford. You also need the Hard Disk Solo it has to proceed to Gym Island.
  • Theme song I would give them?: The obvious.
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: While not that interesting sprite-wise, Roclobster is a beast. It’s practically a Legendary due to its insanely high stats. It’d probably be a good idea to use it, but don’t expect much out of it with how insanely difficult the postgame is. In fact, don't play the game period.
#26: Vigourlan
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Evolution of Vigoroth
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Mr. Mime
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of an existing Pokemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line:
    • Slakoth -> Vigoroth -> Vigourlan (Level 36 / Random chance)
    • Slakoth -> Vigoroth -> Slaking (Level 36 / High personality)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Aaron
  • Miscellaneous: I have no idea what "high personality" even means.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: Oh dear god, it’s Ab Horse Man. I do not see Vigoroth evolving into this horrible furry trash thing at all. It has a pretty insane Special Attack stat along with Speed but awful defenses. If you brought a good Bug or Dark type, they will destroy this guy.
#27: Reaper Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Scyther Family
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: / (Grim Reaper) - / (Iron Reaper)
  • Evolution Line: Grim Reaper -> Iron Reaper
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Zepar
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – The Gatehouse
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: I’ve always liked Scizor. While Scyther’s edited sprite is really barfy looking, Scizor’s pallate as Iron Reaper actually looks pretty good. Too bad a good Fire attack could kill them in an instant.
#28: Eye-Eye
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Jynx
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Franken
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Bloodpuppets Battle
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason:Aside from the absolutely hideous sprite, Eye-Eye is a pain to fight no matter when they appear if you don’t have a Fire type. The sprite is just … Why does she have a face growing out of her chest?
#29: Electabugs
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Electabuzz
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Parker
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Bellyache Boss Battle
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: It’s a pure black Electabuzz. It’s less “scary” and more “badass”. Electabugs can absolutely destroy your team if you’re unprepared, because they hit really hard with the STAB-boosted Thunder Punches.
#30: Miasmar
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Magmar
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Forge
  • Miscellaneous: It actually has an edited backsprite, even if it is just a messy recoloration. Still, I'm surprised it was even changed.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Bellyache Boss Battle
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Miasmar, for a pallate swap, looks pretty awesome. I love blue fire, and to be honest the pun with this one isn’t even that bad.
    • Curious as to what the backsprite was for. Were we going to be able to use more zombie Pokemon than just Moulder and Graveill? That would have been awesome.


Fakemons #31-60:

Spoiler:


#31: Gorelax
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Snorlax
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Chestburster
  • Miscellaneous: Gorelax and Rotting are the only Pokemon that have living counterparts.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 3 – Cannibal Boss
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Oh dear god. Poor bastard… I like the idea though. Gorelax is every bit as bulky as normal Snorlax, so bring a Fighting type / stallbreaker like Juno or Jeanne.
#32: Mutagon
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Mewtwo
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Pallate Swap
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: I have no idea what Mutagon is about.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: D
    • Reason: It's Mewtwo with a darker color. Moving on...
#33: Mewby
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Mew
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Pallate Swap
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: D
    • Reason: It's just a shiny Mew with funky eyes… which I think is a reference to Dragon Ball GT. God damn it, Cutlerine!
#34: Kamina
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: The Gurren Lagann character
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Togepi
  • Fakemon Type: Ripped from an anime
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: HIS OWN NAME.
  • Miscellaneous: The only way to fight Kamina is to go to Mount Doom, which involves having a Pokemon that knows Explosion and catching Luca Zamon. Kamina also has back-sprites, a menu sprite and a shiny pallate (green hair) despite never being catchable.
  • Theme song I would give him?: If you expected anything else, then I don't know what to say.
  • My score of him overall: SSS (actually A)
    • Reason: HIS DRILL SHALL PIERCE THE HEAVENS – HE IS THE MANLIEST HERO IN THE WORLD -- (cough).
    • Seriously though, Kamina is strong. The only was I was able to even beat him back at the finale was due to him being dumb enough to use the elemental punches (Ice/Thunder Punch) instead of Earthquake, which I can assure you would have killed Bellamine in two hits.
#35: Azombarill Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Azumarill family
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Graveill -> Azombarill (Lv. 18)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Menti
  • Miscellaneous: Is one of the two obtainable zombies in the game.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Bloodpuppets Battle
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: To see the normally cute Marill family turned into this is kinda sad. But that aside, they’re pretty badass by virtue of Azumarill being a hard hitting tank.
    • Well, in Gen 6 at the very least.
    • How they turned from blue and white to orange and black will always mystify me.
#36: Madio Family (excluding Kingmadio)
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Too many to count
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: (all Madios are part Ghost) / (Earthmadio), (Bonemadio), (Crazymadio), (Seamadio), (Burst/Blastmadio), (Treemadio), (Aeromadio), (Normadio)
  • Evolution Line: Burstmadio -> Blastmadio (Fire Stone)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: No, thank you.
  • Miscellaneous: Burstmadio is the only one that can evolve. It is also a reference to a Yugioh monster. Crazymadio is Jumpluff. No, seriously.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of them overall: D
    • Reason: The Madios are the Fakemon, aside from Hombone, that make Snakewood look bad. They’re all pitifully weak (aside from Blastmadio and even then he’s not that great) and their sprites are practically no-effort bland.
    • Admittedly, the elemental aspect of it is neat. If you ever see a Madio in the wild, though, just get rid of it. It’s not worth your time unless you’re some hoarder.
    • I assume Blastmadio is supposed to be a reference to a Yugioh monster due to the elongated nose, but oh well.
#37: Zombified
  • Appearance: Unedited Politoed sprite
  • Based on: ???
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Politoed
  • Fakemon Type: N/A
  • Type: N/A
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Nothing
  • My score of it overall: E
    • Reason: Zombified is Politoed but completely unedited. I'm positive it was supposed to be a zombie version of Politoed but Cutlerine didn’t get to put it in.
#38: Toxeon & Demoneon
  • Appearance: Unedited Espeon and Umbreon
  • Based on: ???
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: (Toxeon) / (Demoneon)
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: E
    • Reason: The same thing with these two. Toxeon and Demoneon were apparently supposed to be different Eeveelutions but Cutlerine didn’t touch much regarding them either. Toxeon is in fact Poison type while Demoneon is Ghost type – Their stats are completely swapped, with Demoneon having 130 Sp. Atk and Toxeon having 130 Attack.
#39: Dirtkrow
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Murkrow
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Gilder
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: Dirtkrow is pretty average but I like his gold design. Early on though, he can rip you apart if you don’t have a Pikachu. I don't understand the naming for this one - why is he called Dirtkrow when he's a petty jewelry thief with a gold design? I don't get it.
    • For that matter, how is he zombie-like? The only part of them that could qualify is their missing wing, but that's... not a lot.
#40: Diamandix
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Evolution of Steelix
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Dunsparce
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of an existing Pokemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Onix -> Steelix -> Diamandix (Max Beauty)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Diamond (yeah whatever)
  • Miscellaneous: It effectively only has two weaknesses - and , which were considered physical before Gen IV.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: Diamandix is the kind of evolution that Steelix didn’t quite need. The completely impenetrable physical defense (remember, it has 255 base defense!), coupled with no Special weaknesses made it too much of a hassle to get rid of with old-fashioned brawling.
    • There is also no way to get a Diamandix legitimately in-game as none of the Pokeblock machines work, which leads me to believe that it only exists to grind your progress in the postgame to a screeching halt. I don't like it, really.
#41: Radiorange Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept...?
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Snubbull and Granbull
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: (Cinderco), / (Radiorange)
  • Evolution Line: Cinderco -> Radiorange (If given Leaf Stone???)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Alex
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Nothing
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Cinderco is pretty cute if bland, but Radiorange wins me over because it’s literally a Voltorb orange that’s Fire/Dark. It’s so goddamn stupid that I just can’t help but laugh. In terms of actual battle though, Radiorange has Chandelure-level special attack along with a signature Dark move called Crazy Bolt… so watch out?
#42: Telson
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Qwilfish
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Pallate Swap
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: D
    • Reason: Telson is essentially what happened to the real Qwilfish state. It has the same moveset and stats of Tentacool-Qwilfish, but it has some major things holding it back. It can’t evolve into Qwilshark and aside from its different pallate and name, it doesn’t stand out from the crowd at all. It’s pretty bad.
#43: Maw
  • Appearance: Unedited Sneasel sprite
  • Based on: Mawile?
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Sneasel
  • Fakemon Type: N/A
  • Type: N/A
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: E
    • Reason: Also, this is what happened to the real Sneasel slot. Sneasel replaced Mawile (for some odd reason) while leaving the actual slot for Sneasel the same. It doesn’t even look like Cutlerine got through the naming process before just quitting and moving onto something else. For shame. Mawile is one of my favorite Pokemon.
#44: Chocwork
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: A Clockwork Orange + Radiorange???
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Ursaring
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Alex
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Nothing
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: The sprite is very ech due to it just being Radiorange with a machine eye. The reference is out of nowhere too, but it has monster Attack and Defense. So I guess things balance out..? Nah, probably not.
#45: Headdoom Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Houndoom Family
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Houndsour -> Headdoom
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Baskerville
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – The Gatehouse
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: These are probably the worst because the joke is that they have no heads. This one’s a big missed opportunity because Cutlerine could have made them like Cerberus creatures or something. That would have been kickass.
    • Not only that, it pokes a giant hole into the plot because it’s not consistent. How can these guys be just fine without heads while the other zombies crumble to dust or are physically incapable of hurting Jack after they lose a Pokemon battle? Are human zombies just not better than Pokemon zombies? I don’t know.
#46: Scar Lugia
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Lugia
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: No.
  • Fakemon Type: Zombie
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Irene
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Escape from the Void
  • My score of it overall: A
    • Reason: This one is probably one of the better "zombies." The color scheme is cool and the name is badass. Although I would be wary about fighting this thing as it is still a legendary. How a Lugia got turned into a zombie I'll never know, but at this point I honestly don't care.
#47: Skylax
  • Appearance: (Munchlax and Snorlax included)
  • Based on: Snorlax Family
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Lotad (Munchlax), Lombre (Snorlax) and Ludicolo (Skylax)
  • Fakemon Type: Evolution of an existing Pokemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Munchlax -> Snorlax -> Skylax (If given a Sun Stone)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Sky Yddet
  • Miscellaneous: The only way to get Munchlax is to trade Faceleech for it, which is a complicated ordeal in of itself as you have to do the Turmur sidequest to begin with.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Earthbound Beginnings - Battle with a Flippant Foe
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Skylax replaced the Ludicolo family, which isn’t cool. But this is still pretty funny. I’m pretty sure Skylax is a reference to a certain enemy from Mother 1 (now known as Earthbound Beginnings) so I just had to name it after said enemy.
    • It has an absolutely massive Health and Speed stat, and the only thing it’s lacking is Special Attack and Defense. This thing is overpowered!
#48: Hyperegg Family
  • Appearance: (Secret, Hyper and Kaijilanth look the same)
  • Based on: Bad Egg glitch from Gen 3
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Delibird (Mysteryegg), Nincada (Hyperegg), Ninjask (Secretegg), Shedinja (Kaijilanth)
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: (Secret & Hyper), / (Mysteryegg)
  • Evolution Line:
    • Mysteryegg -> Secretegg -> Hyperegg (Level 43)
    • Hyperegg -> Unown (Moon Stone)
    • Hyperegg -> Suicune, Raikou or Entei (Water, Thunder and Fire Stones)
    • Hyperegg -> Celebi (Leaf Stone)
    • Kaijilanth (Have an empty slot in your party while... I don't know, actually.)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Benedict (Egg) / Chloris (Celebi)
  • Miscellaneous: Birch gives you one at the beginning of the game. I’m sure it’s the only one in the entire hack, so don’t release it under any circumstance for the love of god.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Paltry aesthetics aside, the Hyperegg family consists of probably the most complex Fakemon in the entire hack. The fact it’s pretty much Bad Egg but made real is just a bonus.
    • See, Hyperegg can evolve into five different Pokemon despite already having gone through two previous stages. Even if you don’t evolve Hyperegg, it’s practically one of the most destructive Pokemon out there as it can heal itself easily and tank through most damage. Hence why turning Chloris into a Celebi was sort of a bad idea in hindsight.
    • There's also Kaijilanth which I assume is the Shedinja of this line. I don't know if the mechanics changed, but they're there if you want them.
#49: X32763 Camera
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Azurill
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Alpha
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Megaman X5 - Rangda Bangda W
  • My score of it overall: A
    • Reason: I really like this one. See, it’s a hyper-advanced camera that people made to replace cameramen but went rogue and started killing people. It’s also cool because it’s like a man-made Pokemon which is definitely plausible.
    • In terms of stats, it’s practically a more monstrous Magnezone with high health, attack, defense, special attack and a completely broken signature move (100/100 Power and Accuracy that also goes first) but still pretty bad speed and special defense.
    • It has Levitate, so the only thing it’s weak to is Fighting and Fire. Catch it if you can, because it might be really good.
#50: Kingmadio
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Swalot
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: I'd rather not.
  • Miscellaneous: Kingmadio can only be found on… M-Mirage Island?! Really, Cutlerine?
  • Theme song I would give them?: Mother 3 - Dry Guys
  • My score of it overall: F
    • Reason: This is probably the worst Fakemon I’ve ever seen. See, Kingmadio is a Dark/Ghost type with Wonder Guard. That sounds great… on paper.
    • Having to actually fight this thing is nothing but a waste of time because it’s immune to everything but status effects and Struggle. It has 1 for every base stat except for speed, which is maxed out at 255… Meaningless, considering that it can’t do anything to harm you aside from Toxic and Night Shade. (The former move being illegal for it to learn as it can't learn from any TMs)
    • It’s nothing but a giant wall and Cutlerine is a massive troll for putting it in.
#51: Hombeast Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Numel and Camerupt
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: Hombone -> Hombeast
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Mother 3 - Mischievous Blues
  • My score of it overall: D
    • Reason: Hombone and Hombeast are probably the second-worst Fakemon in the game. The design is boring (Hombeast got a tinier claw! That somehow means it evolved?) and they’re probably the easiest Pokemon to take out in the game.
    • I wouldn’t be bothered by Hombone as much if they weren’t goddamn everywhere in this game. It’s almost like Cutlerine wanted you to use one but the only thing they have going for them is an admittedly-not-that -bad Attack stat. Other than that, they’re completely unremarkable.
#52: Kenchukuo Family
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Cacnea and Cacturne.
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: / (Kenchira), / (Kenchukuo)
  • Evolution Line: Kenchira -> Kenchukuo (Level 48)
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: I'd rather not.
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: The Kenchukuo family has some of the most out-there designs in Snakewood that don’t seem to come from anything. It’s a disgusting mish-mash of so many things and while it’s a samurai birdman, it just doesn’t work for me.
    • As for stats, Kenchukuo is Attack and Speed incarnate but has pitiful special attack (It’s 16!). Don’t mess around with a Kenchukuo because they can absolutely ruin your day. I still have nightmares.
#53: Psypig
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Grumpig...?
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Bagon
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Earthbound - Battle against an Unsettling Opponent
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: Psypig is a strange case. It looks like Grumpig, but it has no association with them nor does it evolve into anything. I honestly don’t know what the point of it is.
      It has amazing Special Attack and Defense, but it shouldn’t be that hard to get rid of if you have a good Water (Qwilshark) or Dark (Gigawolf) type, the former of which are incredibly common in the new Hoenn.
#54: Furi Trio
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Regi Trio
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: (X) / (Z) / (Q)
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: I'd rather not.
  • Miscellaneous: The Furis are all guarded behind different Strength puzzles, which effectively makes them useless as the game's already over by then.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Nothing, really
  • My score of it overall: D
    • Reason: These sprites are awful. That aside, they’re nothing special even for legendaries. Furi X has a psyduckton of Attack, okay HP and 100 Def/Sp.Def. If you can get past this guy’s awful speed, then go ahead.
    • Furi Z is the worst as he has no attacking power (1 in Attack and Sp. Attack) but has a metric ton of Health, Defense and Sp. Defense. He is pretty much the Stalemate Fakemon as he can tank through every threat in the game with little effort and that’s not fun.
    • Furi Q is the most balanced of the three but that’s not saying much as it has 100 base HP, 120 Attack and that’s about it. You’re not missing anything with these guys.
#55: Luca Zamon
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Latias
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give her: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – Bloodpuppets Battle
  • My score of her overall: B
    • Reason: Luca Zamon is a Fakemon that could benefit from more added to her design. Despite that, she’s one of the few Dragon/Ice types I’ve ever seen and her stats aren’t half bad. She’s described as the god of destruction, which I can’t really take with a lot of merit considering a few smacks to the jaw could kill her.
#56: Tea Barqan
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Latios
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give him: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: You find him at the top of Fort Draco’s Tower when you catch Luca Zamon.
  • Theme song I would give them?: None
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: He has some decent stats and looks kind of cute. That and he’s supposed to be the “Peace-Keeping Pokemon”. It was described as making even Genghis Khan stop one of his bloody campaigns, which is pretty insane. His actual presence in the game itself is practically non-existent because he appears right at the end, though.
#57: Turmur
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Kyogre
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type:
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give it: Toad
  • Miscellaneous: I'd go over the Turmur sidequest again, but naaaah.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Earthbound - Battle against an Unsettling Opponent
  • My score of it overall: C
    • Reason: What the hell am I looking at? An evil Mario Toad? Turmur’s design makes it hard to take seriously. To be frank, the only reason this thing exists is to breed Faceleech and for Senex to drive you insane. The quest chain it takes to get Turmur is also a bit cumbersome, due to how many steps there are. I should mention that this monster is 14 feet tall, so what the hell?
    • It has impressive stats barring speed, which is a pitiful 20. If you can be bothered to do the chain quest, then go ahead.
    • The chain quest itself is another giant reference to Bobobo, which is like “wow Cutlerine was a giant weeb.”
#58: Senex
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Rayquaza
  • Fakemon Type: Karate grandpa
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Yveltal(as a giant one-fingered salute)
  • Miscellaneous: None.
  • Theme song I would give them?: ... I don't know, actually. Megalovania was more for Bellamine slaughtering his team than anything else.
  • My score of it overall: S
    • Reason: Being the main antagonist of Snakewood and the reason there was a zombie apocalypse at all adds to the catharsis factor when you finally cram him into a Pokeball and make him your eternal slave. His sprite is pretty snazzy and his stats are impressive to say the least.
#59: Shaderu
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Jirachi
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Nothing
  • Miscellaneous: To meet Shaderu for real, you have to collect all 10 Broken Hearts.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Earthbound - Giygas's Intimidation
  • My score of it overall: A
    • Reason: Shaderu, despite looking like a black Gastly with a Haunter claw, is honestly kind of disturbing.
    • Its shadowy body is powered by the souls of unborn children, which is just... hitting a bit too far? That aside, it has 100 in every stat except for Attack and Special Defense which are 160. That's outrageous.
#60: Faceleech
  • Appearance:
  • Based on: Original concept
  • Replaces Pokemon from actual games: Deoxys
  • Fakemon Type: Fakemon
  • Type: /
  • Evolution Line: N/A
  • Nickname I would give a member of this family: Ripper
  • Miscellaneous: The only way to get Faceleech is to breed Turmur. Poor Ditto, Christ.
  • Theme song I would give them?: Splatterhouse 2 – The Gatehouse
  • My score of it overall: B
    • Reason: Faceleech is honestly one of those Fakemon that is meant to scare a beginner. It has 255 Speed and excellent attack - but when you get a good enough team or a priority move, it’s immediately obsolete. It has a creepy design and looks like a Deoxys-ified Remoraid, but it’s actually the spawn of Turmur… which makes no sense.


Sinnoh / Unova Pokemon:

Spoiler:


1. Magnezone (Evolves from Magneton with Thunder Stone)

2. Munchlax (Replaces Lotad – obtained from trading Faceleech, which in turn requires breeding from Turmur)

3. Shinx and its evolutions (Replaces Electrike, Manectric and Plusle – to get Shinx you need the Cat’s Eye item, which is part of the Turmur chain quest)

4. Weavile (Replaces Minun – Sneasel appear in the Frigid Way and the Rainy Cave, and you can evolve them to Weavile with max happiness)

5. Toxicroak (Replaces Chimecho – obtained via the plot progression)

6. Spiritomb (Replaces Shelgon – obtained via the Sewer/Abandoned Ship sidequest)
7. Zoroark, as Gigawolf (Replaces Diglett – evolve Mightyena to max Happiness)

8. Emolga (Replaces Groudon hahahah – obtained from that one dude in the Film University)

9. Bouffalant (Replaces Gulpin – apparently they’re on route 121)

10. Blitzle and Zebstrika (Replaces Sentret and Furret - Give the Sparkly Pony item to the person inside of the Endless Plains room in Fort Draco, which becomes a Blitzle)

11. Basculin (Red Stripe) – (Evolves from Luvdisc when given a Water Stone)
12. Drilbur and Excadrill (Replaces Porygon and Porygon2)

... Wow. There goes the meat of all of the work I had to do. The next chapters are going to be smooth sailing, because putting the first two together took a surprising amount of time to do. Thankfully, the true end should be coming soon enough.

See you guys for the next bonus chapter.
