Perhaps. Anyway, I think for now we should pay some attention to concepts other than just Chanpuff. :/

Ability/ies: Quick Feet/Intimidate
Gender Ratio: 100% male, 0% female.

Yes, it is a WIP, but I want to be the one to finish it so I can display it in my wonderful gallery of cool sprites Failmon instead of my suckish pillowshade flower whose name I am not going to mention. So, no touchy~

Also, the colours are there to remind me what part is what.

And yes, Perry the Platypus is from Phineas and Ferb.
Um...I'm not so sure about having a Perry the Platypus Pokémon. :/ It's just a copied idea. Perhaps we could come up with a different idea for a platypus Pokémon?

How about a bowl of rice? Using shades of grey and white could do it. Also since not many colours have been used on this one. (Dunno how rice will look like in the shiny version though lol)
Well, as ~Wind~ said (V) it's the noodle Pokémon. Perhaps there could be an "opposing" Pokémon based around rice. Though that's for later, as we're PACKED with ideas and are lacking sprites.

I like both versions, the noodles are good.
But then i thought of something, maybe the noodles could be part of the female version?
or maybe just smaller noodles on females?
I think we're overthinking Chanpuff. :/

And here it is, with the palette!

I think it's a bit meh-ish, though.
Yeah...but like I said, I'm not so sure about the idea as a whole. :/

Um, the whole idea of this thread is to work together. :/

New idea brought to this page...

Name: Blaydyte
Bladetail pokemon
Abilities: Guts
Type: Steel
Pokedex: It is a small yellow creature with no distinguishable head. It's skin is so tough only a diamond cutter can penetrate it. Blaydyte has a blue line running all the way down it's back, forming into an arrow between it's eyes (If you ever watched Avatar: The last airbender when you were little, it looks like aang's arrow). 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.
...can we not have any more ideas, please?

I'll edit it...eventually.

Bombacid, the Acid Beetle Pokemon.

I couldn't decide on a color. And it may have come out a little big... >.>
Feel free to make edits if need be.
It's nice <:.

It is kind of big. Regarding the color, purple and orange play well together; maybe use the orange version, but make the orange stripe on the head and the spots purple?
I am, too. I'm not so sure why we've given it special attention.

In any case imo the sprite's already good as it is.

Etymology, yes. Some ideas have it on the first post. I'll add it to the form (and the species).

Good idea, though that won't be a priority as we aren't going to be working on concepts for a while (I think we should get at least a third of these concepts sprited, even if it's just WIPs).

I see pistol shrimp and narwhal. This is gonna be epic.

GAUSSRIMP ("Gauss"+"Shrimp")
Guts/Sniper/Sheer Force

Dex Entry
It stores up energy on its bent arms. When releasing a strike with its arms, it releases shockwaves that could stun a larger Pokemon. Their small size makes them easily underestimated, though.

Written Description
A gray-ish blue lobster with blue-colored arms and pincers. Its arms are bent back, forming a makeshift held-back club. Its legs are also blue.

NARLBARD ("Narwhal"+"Halberd". I know it sucked big time)
*No idea for abilities*

Dex Entry
It is usually docile. But the males become wilder and more competitive in mating seasons. Many fishing ships have been destroyed by NARLBARD during mating seasons. This is due to their bad eyesight.

Written Description

Armored whale with a... halberd-thingy... on its lower maw. The non-covered parts are blue, and the armor pieces are light gray.

Hope that helps. :)
I think it's best if we work on sprites for now, instead of introducing more concepts. Remember, you can always expand on what we have!

I agree. Perhaps some steel plating?

And yeah I tried to put more highlights to emphasize the "steel"ness but hey! Jirachi doesn't look Steel-ish. xD

Well, if anyone wants to make fixes/edits/improvements feel free to edit my sprites, they still aren't finalized-ish anyways. ^_~

Now, back to playing the 3rd birthday...

Okay, just in case I haven't said it enough:

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!
If, however, you can provide a sprite with a concept, than it's fine. It's just concepts without sprites that we have in excess! n_n

A Pokemon that is discriminated!
Support squirtle and make it everyone's favourite.
