I'll be posting more material now, pictured again by phone, this time in black and white.

For the first time, we have the tinder fungus-based Grass/Fire cook Breloom:

cook breloom.jpg

We can see its hat has turned into a chef's cap and its neck frills tilted forward with the ones in the front extending into an apron. The apron is spotty, resembling Shroomish. The two claws on each limb have been reduced to one large, cooking knife-like one meant to evoke the tinder fungus. On the feet, they became hooves. The small round bodies present on the original's hat and tail have become long and pointy to look like spicy peppers. On the hat, they are now positioned in the front and back instead of being on the sides. On the tail, they are arranged like on a stegosaurus instead of being bundled up at the tip of the tail.

More details to follow.

Here we have some rough visual clarifications of this design:

cook breloom elaborations.jpg

In the top left corner we see Cook Breloom using its claws to cut up an Oran Berry. The claws are sharp and can be used for slashing even without firing them up.

The claws and hooves are meant to heat up and glow in fiery colours when active.

In the middle, marked 1 and 2, we see Breloom striking its claws against each other, pulling one back slightly and pushing the other forward with greater force. The idea is that it produces sparks and blasts of fire in this way, further illustrated in the bottom of the image.

This concludes the Cook Breloom part of the presentation. To remind you, this one is supposed to evolve from regular Shroomish. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it!

Also, we have the first concept draft of the fly agaric-based Poison/Psychic hippie Breloom, the evolved form of swirly-eyed Shroomish (please excuse the low resolution):

hippie breloom.jpg

The hippie motif came from hippies using hallucinogenic mushrooms for... well. You know. It fits well with the general absent-minded, trancing state of the fly agaric-based Shroomish line.

This is a very early sketch, meant to illustrate the main points of the idea: it has thingies dangling from the rim of its hat, which is pointed like a rice hat. Also, it has wavy frills in several layers on its legs to resemble saggy hippie pants (note development from Shroomish's feet). These are meant to squeeze and expand when it hops, kind of like a harmonica, if the harmonica was placed vertically and had dresses around each expanding part. The eyes are half closed, and might end up closed entirely (perhaps Comatose?).

The tail just has to swirl, and perhaps attain bells or wind chimes. Spots arranged in a flowery pattern are a given.

And yes, it's supposed to be making a piece sign with the raised hand.

More of this idea to come soon. What do you think of this one? Which one seems better, the hippie or the cook?

This is fine.

Both are really cool! Kudos there. Drawings are neat and you seem to have the designs well wrapped up... so I'll think aloud on moves and maybe help out with some additional lore/mock dex entries later (plus the Daily side of things.) [As for which is 'better', idk, but seems a shame to feature only one in an article and not the other.]

Cook one - I imagine it could get some moves that involve its blade-like fists - Leaf Blade, X-Scissor, maybe even Swords dance. Overheat and Ember seem fitting for the FIre-typing and cooking motif as well. As for Ability... Flame Body? As a Fire-typed specific version of Effect Spore, I suppose. Then there's Gluttony or Harvest for the cooking motif. That or just some unique Ability that we could try to come up with (maybe as a Hidden Ability).

Hippie motif is also neat, haha. I'd take a note from Spinda's book and suggest that Own Tempo would be a fitting Ability for it. I imagine more healing-based moves like Aromatherapy could fit, as well as Dizzy Punch. Hypnosis, maybe?

Thanks!

As for the Abilities, I thought the hippie one could have Effect Spore/Tangled Feet or, indeed, Own Tempo, but I'd rather be able to see the birdies flying around this thing's head. It seems so natural. Maybe Comatose as a Hidden Ability - as in, its spores are so strong it puts itself to sleep (closed eyes on Breloom in that case).

I'd leave Effect Spore/Poison Heal on the cook and maybe put Flash Fire as a Hidden Ability, alluding to the tinder fungus. It definitely learns Blaze Kick, imagine the burning hooves.

I feel the half-open eyes fit the hippie theme better, and being asleep somewhat confuses the picture. It could have a mixture of the other Abilities and an original one for a Hidden Ability that somehow allows for Confusion to be a benefit to it, or something...

Flash Fire makes sense, as does Blaze Kick, for the cook one.

I'll shortly digress from Breloom to talk about the future of this project.

First, someone thought of a great idea for a Cheshire Glameow over at Pokémon General: https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=425474. That would be great for this section if the author decides to take part, so I guess we have our second entry.

Secondly, for our third entry, I would like to suggest regular, unassuming yet beautiful fish Pokémon. I have come up with some really cool concepts for the Goldeen and Finneon lines. Generally, Goldeen learns punching moves without arms and Finneon becomes a literal butterfly fish.

More on them when I'm done with my two Breloom. Completed hippie Breloom coming soon.

I present the full design candidate for Hippie Breloom:

hippie breloom (1).jpg

The main colours are supposed to be red and white with purple or blue features, especially on the leg frills. Notice the jingle bells on the top of the tail and characteristic stretchy arms with layered "sleeves" with flowery endings, with spread claws for a piece sign glowing with psychic power. There are frills dangling from the edge of the hat, which is now pointed. Eyes half closed, supernaturally blue, with an absent-minded smile. Frilly pants in 3 layers, possibly differently coloured, now cover the legs.

Since there were generally too many frills on this design, I removed the ones around the neck.

Spots arranged in flowery patterns on the chest and tail. The tail was meant to be white with red spots and the body red with white spots, like the hat. The spots glow blue if they're white and purple if they're red.

From a gameplay point of view, I envisioned this Breoom to be specially oriented, either an attacker or a supporter. This thing definitely has Spore and Dream Eater and Toxic and Venoshock and Teeter Dance or some analogue of it, and maybe some more tricky things we make up for it. Perhaps a confusion-based Pokémon, with confusion-benefiting new move and ability?

Thoughts, please!
