I would love to see a Queztcoatl-inspired starter, even if we just had a flying-grass starter already. Maybe we could compensate by making the second/third evolutions dragon-type?

I see Quetzalcoatl more as a possible legendary. Matter of fact, I believe our legendarios should be based on Aztec/Mayan gods (though we haven't voted on that yet), so my suggestion of the quetzal was very much just based on the actual animal.

In terms of prehistoric starters, there aren't a lot of dinosaur fossils in Mexico, but I think the Lambeosaurus could be a cool base for a grass starter, especially due to its Mohawk-like crest.

Welp, I read my own post wrong, and now I'm tallying submissions a day late.

Oh well, the poll for our Grass starter's basis is up, and we have many more options than on any previous poll, the current record now being 12! The poll will close in two days time (for sure this time)!

Just a heads up, you listed Gigatopithecus twice. Once as simian and once as arthropod.
The scorpion should be Pulminoscorpius

Sorry for the delay! Unfortunate power outage. Not fun stuff. Anyways, at least a tie we were having was broken in the mean time! The winner of the basis for our Grass starter is...



Quetzalcoatlus!

The option suggested was Quetzal, but I'm pretty sure this was confused for this iconic flying dinosaur. However, a Quetzal is an actual modern day bird, and the Quetzalcoatlus was named after the Quetzalcoatl, so both can serve as ample inspiration! Thanks to all whom voted!

Results:
Quetzalcoatlus - 3
Glyptodon/Ground Sloth/Megalania - 2
Prehistoric Caiman/Gigantopithecus/Pulminoscorpius (Didn't type the proper name for this one, my bad!) - 1

Now we have two matters on her hands. First of all, submissions for our Grass Starter is now open!

I'm leaving the typing up in the air for submitters, although the winning submission will have a vote to confirm the typing given by the winning artist. 3 stages, evolve by level up, the usual! Must be based off the Quetzalcoatlus in at least some shape or form! Their primary typing must be Grass for every stage, but the secondary typing may change as needed (just try to keep it under control, and not have its secondary type be different every time it evolves). If you're aiming for a unique typing, Grass starters have used Grass/Poison, Grass/Ground, Grass/Fighting, Grass/Flying, and Grass/Ghost before.

To submit a design, post a picture in this thread and accompany it with as much or as little information as you wish (all of it will be debated upon with the community, although some things such as specific levels won't matter too much since this is an RP). You may also post a text description only if you are not artistically talented, but I would encourage perhaps talking to other members and seeing if you can work something out together. Submissions for our Grass Starter close on October 24th, a week from now.

And since we won't be using a poll in that spare submitting time, I think now would be a good time to open up submissions for what our Fire starter will be based off of! It must be based off of a prehistoric species, like for all of our starters, and any of the species that didn't win this poll are eligible for being resubmitted here. Of course, you might just wanna save it for the fossils and think up something else. Submissions for what species our Fire Starter will be based off of will close two days from now.

And finally, not too throw too much stuff your guys' way, but I want to ask something that I don't think necessitates a poll. Would you be okay with some activity from my side in polls and submissions? No, I'm not going to try and sway people into choosing my submissions, and I won't vote in the polls because that feels like a bit too much. But I do have a bit of a creative streak, and I wanted to see if it would be okay with you guys if I participated in these things sometimes, even though I run it. No dirty business on my end, though. Promise!

I'm not at all an artist, and someone else can probably come up with something better, but here's my idea.

The first stage is small and more raptor like. It lives largely in the trees and consumes bugs. Primary plants to note are some large buds atop it's head (like the comb on Quetzalcoatlus), some small sprouting plants on it's beak, and a single agave leaf on it's forearm.

Second stage is larger and starting to shift more towards Quetzalcoatlus. The bud comb had begun to sprout into the Gympie Gympie tree (aka the plant with the most painful sting on the planet), and the sprouting beak plants are turning into ivy capped with a distinct three leaf cluster. Several more agave leaves have sprouted, and a discernible flap of skin can be seen from the arms that will eventually connect to the pokemon's legs.

The final stage is very large. It fully looks like a Quetzalcoatlus now, with an very long beak and membrane between the arms and legs. The comb has fully grown, and started to bear some of the Gympie Gympie's fruit. The ivy has grown past it's beak and revealed itself as a cluster of poison ivy. The agave clusters protect where the flight membrane connects to the arms and legs, but don't extend beyond them.

Stage one is pure grass, and the other two pick up a secondary Poison typing.


Now as for fire type, I think we need to represent the mammals here. My suggestion is either the extinct bovine Auroch, or the Thylacine, aka the Tasmanian Tiger.

I would be 100% alright with this!

For the fire type, I'll nominate Nuralagus rex. What is this fearsome "rex"? Well, it's a mega prehistoric bunny, pretty much. I like the idea of following the "trend" of having fire starters based on the Chinese zodiac, this one being the rabbit.

I actually really love this idea of replacing the animal's mohawk/comb thing with a plant, which eventually sprouts into a full flower or fruit. I think we should make it so that the membranes or wings are more plant or leaf-life, to justify the full poison typing (they would also be poison ivy). I think the typing should only be kept to the third evolution though.

As for the fire starter, I think having a mammal would probably be the most fitting (if we wanna do a marine dino creature for the water starter). I like the idea of the quagga which KFF suggested but I think it would be too similar to rapidash/ponyta. Instead I suggest a tiny rat Pokemon, which eventually would evolve into a kind-of bipedal rat creature (think like Thyplosion).

How's this for a grass starter?

Spoiler:


art credit goes to jennyjams
Pteroot –lv16–> Quetzleaf –lv36–> Floranodon

001 PTEROOT - The Leaf Wing Pokemon
Type: Grass/Flying
Ability: Overgrow/(Quick Feet)
Height: 2'0" (0.6m) / Weight: 14.3 lbs (6.5 kg)
A rare species once thought to be extinct, Pteroot learns to fly soon after it hatches. Sunlight helps the leaves on its wings grow.
Pteroot takes frequent naps to conserve energy. After it does, it can stay in the air for many hours without stopping for rest.
Name origin: pterodactyl (or simply ptero) + root

002 QUETZLEAF - The Leaf Wing Pokemon
Type: Grass/Flying
Ability: Overgrow/(Quick Feet)
Height: 3'11" (1.2m) / Weight: 48.5 lbs (22.0 kg)
A bud has appeared on its tail. When surrounded by forest, it blends in with the foliage before swooping down on unsuspecting prey.
Its leaf-wings act as sails and allow it to glide. It cuts down blades of grass with its sharp wings and skims over water at high speeds.
Name origin: quetzalcoatlus + leaf

003 FLORANODON - The Leaf Wing Pokemon
Type: Grass/Flying
Ability: Overgrow/(Quick Feet)
Height: 5'11" (1.8m) / Weight: 106.9 lbs (48.5 kg)
Its leaf-wings are highly aerodynamic and allow it to soar thousands of feet above the forest canopy. It can even carry humans.
The flower on its tail has bloomed; the size of the flower indicates its health. It absorbs sunlight as it flies and releases it with Solar Beam.
Name origin: flora + pteranodon

The art is great... however, this belongs to a different artist, and wasn't made for this contest. We're making the Pokemon here, not borrowing them from other artists.
