Hello rom hacking community. This is a pretty small thread where I plan to have some Fakemon sprites critiqued for a rom hack I intend to make. So far, I only have a few sprites I have here on my laptop but I hope you enjoy them. If you somehow see this thread, and the Fakemon, feel free to leave comments about their design. Thank you.

P.S: Please keep any comments respectful, and in case of negative feedback, constructive criticism is much more appreciated. Thank you.

11.23.2021:
As per user Corveone's feedback on the design of Draculord, I decided to shrink the bony protrusions on its shoulders to better emphasize its other features and overall to reduce clutter in the design. However, I stuck with the pose because, I kinda like it.

Approved, though I moved it to the correct sub-forum.
I personally like the designs. Decided on names yet?

For the bat, I named it Draculord, based on vampire bats and Dracula.
The dragon is my regional variant Gyarados. Leaning more into the oriental dragon mythology.
The mushroom's named Mushroserk, based on berserker vikings and the fly agaric mushroom (which is proposed to be what caused the berserker's trance.)

I am very glad you like it, thank you.

Sure they might seem a little op, but don't worry, I intend to make fakemon that both make sense design and concept wise, and play well in the balancing of the game. And, here's a spoiler alert:
Spoiler:
All official Pokemon are only available in the post game, so for the main game, you get to only utilize my Fakemon.


I intend this hack to be up there with the famous ones, like Unbound, Radical Red, Clover, Vega and others. Wish me luck guys!

I like all three sprites but I actually think that regional gyarados would be better as a original mon unrelated to Gyarados, or maybe just a similar mon-line e.g. feebas/karp Tauros/Bouffalant type situation. Just a thought anyway, I can see the Gyarados inspiration but doesn't seem like a regional variant to me personally.

Say hello to the first stage Grass type starter, Snailgae!
Based on algae, I modeled this Fakemon after snails, since their shapes are (kinda) similar. This Pokemon loves to bask in the sun. The shell on its back fumes out oxygen as a result of this photosynthesis.
Spoiler:


Since it's still just a basic stage, I don't have much of an idea yet how its stat spread should go (sorry Little Cup players!). I will think of it sooner or later though but for now, critique and enjoy the design :).
