    Monthly Creatémon Challenge
    August 2020

    What Is The Creatémon Challenge?

    The Creatémon (that's "Create-A-'Mon") Challenge is a monthly event where you, the wonderful members of Lake Valor, can work on creating your own Pokémon that fits within a certain theme that changes from month to month.

    Rules & Regulations

    • Each entry must include a name, type and visual representation in order to account. Other details may be included but are not required.
    • Any art style can be used for the visual part of the entry.
    • All submissions must contain at least one Fakemon or alternate form created specifically for the event. Evolutions/pre-evolutions/alternate forms of official Pokémon will be accepted unless stated otherwise in the monthly them. Evolutions, etc. of pre-existing fakemon that you created may be included in an entry as long as you add at least one new form for the event, which must be specified in your post.
    • Entries may be submitted as individuals or worked on in teams. If you want to work in a group, then one member will submit the entry here, with a list of everyone who worked on it and what they did.
    • All submissions must follow the rules of Lake Valor. This means that your entry can not include any offensive or NSFW content.
    • Absolutely no plagiarism. Any participant caught plagiarizing will be disqualified.
    This Month's Theme: Unused Type Combinations

    There are currently 18 different types in the Pokémon franchise, with each Pokémon having 1-2 of these types. That leads to a total of 171 different type combinations that Pokémon can have. However, only 154 of these combinations have been used by official Pokémon (including Mega Evolutions and other alternate forms). The theme for this month is to create a new Pokémon (or alternate form) that fits into one of these unused type combinations. The list of type combos that qualify for this are:


    1st Place: 100 pp
    2nd Place: 75 pp
    3rd Place: 50 pp
    Consolation Prize: 10 pp

    All Entries Must Be Submitted By Sunday, August 28th at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time. Any posts submitted or edited after that point in time will be disqualified. The voting thread will be opened shortly after that.

    I'm probably gonna edit this post a bunch over time, but I'm not certain. There's a chance I move out to another college this month and I don't really know what the future holds in store for me. That being said, here's what I have so far.

    Chemiclysm (Poison/Steel) - Name is derived from Chemical + Cataclysm
    Stats - 83/118/118/83/83/45
    Abilities - Stench/No Second Ability/Radioactive Gas
    New Ability - Removes the item of both the user and the target upon switchin.
    Pokédex Entries -
    "After the explosion of one of the most powerful weapons known to history, Chemiclysm emerged from the ground. Inhaling the fumes it produces is enough to knock out nearly any other Pokémon."
    "Despite its uncanny appearance, this Pokémon means no harm. It curiously explores the world around it without causing battles with other wild Pokémon."

    Other Flavor / Notes -
    - This Pokémon doesn't have traditional arms. Instead, it has several disorganized tentacles that come out of the frontmost part of its body. Can't expect a freak of nature to have normal proportions, can you?
    - The pipe you can see on its back can produce gases, but this was not added to the final sprite for a kind of complicated reason.
    - Its face is very loosely based on a gas mask with some exaggeration with its features just to spice it up a little bit.
    - Competitively, its defensive typing isn't that bad. It's got a few nice resistances like Grass, Rock, Fairy, and Ice, but there are some bulky Steels that would do its job better for their better defensive resistances. I think this thing would get both Toxic Spikes and Recover, and the utility of being able to remove something's item for free is fantastic. A Steel-type with free reliable recovery can't be too bad on its own, especially one like this with great physical bulk and not terrible special bulk if invested, so I could see this landing comfortably in somewhere like UU or maybe RU.
    - What's it based on? Aside from the obvious radioactive waste monster thing, this is my idea of "Grimer's concept done right." I got this idea when posting on a thread with my opinions on object-based Pokémon. Grimer's super bland as is, you need to flesh out its design concept as much as possible to get something like this to work.
    - I don't really like signature moves or abilities on random Pokémon, so take Radioactive Gas as an ability that would be given out to several other Pokémon as well. I could see Weezing, Garbodor, and Skuntank being good contenders for this.

    Also, just for fun, some concept art...

    The very first idea I had for this dude

    I noticed the top one lacked appeal and had a really generic body type for what this could be

    Here's the final product. Crazy how much better something can look in pixel art than in MS Paint sketches!

    I just put these guys together super quickly, and I'm quite happy with them.
    sketch1596862371396.jpg Kindeer, the gentle Pokémon.
    Typing: Normal.
    Pokédex entry: This Pokémon is incredibly shy around people. When it sees a human, it will freeze up, unable to flee.
    Evolution method. Kindeer evolves into Wendeergo when it has high friendship.
    5a882270-8d60-4a33-bbbc-8ea4ea4cba6e.jpg Wendeergo, the influenced Pokémon.
    Typing: Normal/Ghost
    Pokédex entry: As this Pokémon spends more time around humans, it starts to take after them. If a human is too selfish or greedy, Wendeergo begins to change to reflect that.
    Evolution method: Wendeergo evolves into Wendighoul when it levels up when its trainer has more than 50,000 Pokémon dollars.
    c86d269e-8012-4c2b-af77-1fd61467b466.jpg Wendighoul, the corrupted Pokémon.
    Typing: Normal/Ghost
    Pokédex entry: This Pokémon feeds off of human greed and selfishness. The more greed it's exposed to, the stronger it gets.
    As soon as I saw the possibility of normal/ghost, the first animalistic ghost that came to my mind was the wendigo. I tried to represent both the media portrayals of the wendigo, and the native american stories about it. The pale skin, humanoid figure, and themes of human greed come from what I've heard about the native american legend. The deer aspect mostly comes from the popular portrayals of it.

    I may edit the artwork a bit before the deadline, but I'm pretty happy with it as it is.

    Stenophygon, the Ambush Pokémon (Dragon/Bug)
    With the ability to precisely control the color of their scales, Stenophygon are masters of camouflage. They will wait motionless for hours until an unfortunate victim wanders too close. When the perfect opportunity arises, they strike with blinding speed.
    Height/Weight: 1m (3.28ft) / 55lbs (24.9kg)
    Stats: 80/125/75/80/75/125 (560 total)
    Abilities: Mimicry, Infiltrator, Ambush Predator* (Hidden Ability)
    *While a Terrain is active, this Pokémon's evasiveness and critical hit chance are increased (both by 10%)
    While doing some research for possible ideas, I stumbled upon the Brazilian dragon mantis, a rare species of mantis native to Brazil. I really liked its shape, so I used it as the basis for the design and color scheme. Its scientific name, Stenophylla cornigera, is also the basis of this Fakemon's name (along with an almost obligatory "-gon" for its partial Dragon typing and design). The Shiny version's color scheme was inspired by the orchid mantis.

    This Pokémon is meant to be an ambush predator, like most mantids in real life. It is also likely the final evolution of a 2- or 3-stage line, but I'm not really in the mood to draw possible pre-evolutions. I'm not sure how competitively viable this Pokémon would be, since Bug is not a particularly good defensive type, but because it relies on ambush tactics, it make sense that it would be a glass cannon. Strike first, strike hard, and hope you knock out whatever you're up against.

    Infaerno, the Hobby Lantern Pokémon
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Abilities: Prankster, Illuminate, Pickpocket (HA)
    Pokédex Entry: These mischievous tricksters are said to use their flames to lure unsuspecting humans and Pokémon deep into the swamps they call home.
    When trying to come up with an idea for a Fairy/Fire Pokémon, one of the first things that came to mind were Will-O'-Wisps. When I was doing research on them I discovered that another name for these mysterious lights is "Hobby Lantern", referring to a species of fairy called the Hob, which is a close relative of the Brownie. Thus I decided to use the Brownie and similar fae creatures as the main source for the design and gave it a lantern. The red in its design is both to connect it to its fire type and also a reference to a type of Goblin known as a Redcap.
