OH. MY GOD. THIS TOOK LIKE A MONTH OF ON-AND-OFF WORK ASDDFKSDJKSD
But it's done. And I went all out because I am a pathetic nerd. And I swear, putting together all the stats and layout and shit took almost as long as DRAWING the damn things.
No proper PokeDex entries because honestly, what I have to say about these guys can't possibly fit into two sentences lol. But I will give a few quick notes about them that aren't already listed:
Tamaflare is based on tamanduas or "lesser anteaters." Tama- tamandua; flare- idk. Primarily arboreal, it feeds on insects and fruits. Because of its relatively large claws, it walks on its knuckles to protect them. The "collar" around its neck is its primary heat source. Its placement outside its body keeps Tamaflare from overheating. It uses the few heat vents on its collar to regular body temperature as well as to ignite when threatened. However, its fire attacks usually come from its mouth like most other Fire pokemon. Because of its environment, it is careful not to set its home aflame puts out any accidental fires with a Sand-Attack. Shy in nature, this pokemon would rather escape into the treetops than face a foe...
Myrmagma is based on giant anteaters. Its name comes from their scientific term Myrmecophaga tridactyla
(because trying to make a name out of "anteater" felt kind of dumb) and "magma" which is a reference to its main heat source being kept inside its "vest" sort of like magma is technically lava that is still underground. Unlike its pre-evolution, Myrmagma is terrestrial, now having grown too large to stay in the trees. It's primarily quadrapedal, walking on its knuckles to protect its enormous talons much like its pre-evo (in this stance it is capable of quick bursts of speed). It assumes a bipedal stance, however, when engaged in battle. Its bushy tail made of long, wiry, heat-resistant fur is used as a personal blanket to protect it from rain storms and from some attacks. Its other senses make up for its poor eye sight which consequently makes them easily startled. Unlike its pre-evo, Myrmagma will stand its ground and fight if it feels threatened, often spewing flames from the heat vents that run alongside its body to intimidate its foe. The strongest attacks that it can learn naturally are Earthquake and Overheat...
... I TOLD you I had this shit down lmao. I don't know if that's all I had on these guys but that's most of it. I love Torterra and all, but I would totally ride a giant flaming anteaterbear everywhere I go. Fuck bikes. And Fly. Pfft. Speaking of which-
