    Alright! Heres a lot of info on my fan-made region, Inkk. Will be updated every so often. Feel free to let me know whether you think its bad or very bad.

    With the discovery of Inkk brings a new type: The war type! Weak to Fighting and Psychic, Strong against Dragon, Normal and Fairy, Cant hurt Ghost, and Resists Dark and Normal. Even one of the 3 starters has the type!
    76e6ce60-d2fc-49f3-b445-480b9b466b68.png Name: Kagilo
    Species: Mosquito Pokemkn
    Type: Bug/Dark
    Pokédex Entry: Kagilo feed off of only blood, favoring human blood. They sneak onto people to try to suck their blood without them noticing. They can be very dangerous when hungry and in groups.
    93b650b3-c957-4eda-9494-2af14471860e.png Name: Kanoche
    Species: Mosquito Pokémon
    Type: Bug/Dark
    Pokédex Entry: Kanoche, like Kagilo, sneak onto their victims to suck blood. They usually hunt at night, the cloak of darkness helping hide them.
    288fef0a-78a0-4bf4-aab9-6d169fe30632.png Name: Kaferme
    Species: Mosquito Pokémon
    Type: Bug/Dark
    Pokédex Entry: Kaferme lead groups of Kanoche and Kagilo. The one with the biggest head spikes is the leader. They are known to become extremely violent when hungry.
    8abbc910-88d7-419c-a27d-48cce24477cd.png Name: Urchione
    Species: Urchin Pokémon
    Type: Poison/Water
    Pokédex Entry: In the wild, Urchiones stick close to shore and huddle together in the mating season, causing dangerous patches of them. When its not mating season, they are suprisingly loners, with only them and any family.
    b744f66e-bd4d-488d-a990-7d291fdcbfc8.png Name: Urchithre
    Species: Urchin Pokémon
    Type: Poison/Fighting
    Pokédex Entry: When three Urchithre's combine, a dangerous creature is formed. Thankfully, they tend to walk into the ocean after evolving to live at the bottom. Whether this is instinct or for the survival of humans is unknown.
    6484c061-bc39-4250-8b1f-19adff8f0933.png Name: Icroo
    Species: Ice Furnace
    Type: Fire/Ice
    Pokédex Entry: The Icroo has similiar problems to the Flimflora. In the icy caves it lives, none of the ice types around dare go too close. However, unlike the flimflora, the flame makes it highly valued as an ice furnace for igloo's.
    a06f5ca5-58e4-4301-a7ca-252b15a94401.png Name: Telszap
    Species: The Telsa (or tesla, dont question my spelling) Pokémon
    Type: Electric/Steel
    Pokédex Entry: In The Pokémon War, Telszaps were stationed near entrances to bases. Any intruders that came by were met by a shock of electricity. In the present day, the live in power plants or captivity. Finding one in the wild is rare.
    Extra Notes: Version Exclusive. Counterpart is Wolthunder.

    Extra Notes: Version Exclusive. Counterpart is Telszap.

    Well, I'll critique this like it would be if it were in an actual game ^^

    Your idea of a new type, the war type, doesn't really seem like something that'd fit in the Pokémon world mostly because it isn't a traditional element, you know? Although, I can see the reasoning behind it's weaknesses. War involves fighting, and war can cause mental illnesses that damage the psyche. So that part is pretty cool. Although, I'm not sure why it's supereffective against dragon, normal, and fairy, and why it doesn't affect ghost. If anything, I'd say it should hit ghost with neutral damage since ghost types are kinda broken (immunity to trapping moves + abilities, ability to run away from any battle, etc)

    With your Pokémon, your first one, Urchione, I'm not sure if the intention was to be a sort of parallel to Pyukumuku, but that's certainly what I'm reminded of. All your Pokémon have really interesting designs, and this is probably me being super nitpicky, but Wolthunder's tail reminds me a bit too much of Pikachu's. If anything, maybe make it more similar to a wolf's tail? I understand the thunderbolt design, but like I said it looks really similar to Pikachu's.

    Since you mention version exclusives, do you have any ideas for what the names of the games would be?

    All in all, what you've shown so far is pretty good, could use some fine tuning, but you're off to a good start!

    deep breath:

    ehh, ok. you completedly overcomplicated my reasoning behind fighting and psychic, but i'm not going to say what the original reasoning was because yours is way better. Dragon is because, well, war-riors would slay dragons. Surprised you didn't get normal. What happens to normal people in a war? And fairy...ehh, i dunno, fairy is good and war often triumphs over the good if there isn't enough good? eghhh idk. and swords aint gonna hit those floaty things.

    actually, urchione was made before pyukumuku, i do believe. and for wolthunder, eghhhh, i cant be bothereddddd

    hot and cold. there's even legendaries. fire eagle and ice narwhal. and some weird plant thing. and an interdimensional squid. and--

    thank you.

    Oh, sorry! I didn't realize I was really making things more complicated than it actually was. I guess I'm a bit too harsh ^^;;; Sorry about that.

    No, not in a bad way. your reasoning for fighting and psychic was way better then mine XD. i just went for fighting would fight against the war and some people could consider psychic kinda magic with would also be used against the war?? idek
