Its constant preening leaves its feathers smooth as silk. It is incredibly proud of it’s feather crest on the top of it’s head. The strongest males will try and pull each others head feather off when fighting over territory or food.
A Pokemon of extraordinary antiquity, Marsupium’s ponderous bulk has allowed it to survive the biting cold of the ice age. Cave paintings depict it used as a beast of burden, but its extreme sluggishness and stubbornness cause some to view this critically. It is too lazy to lift its heavy tail when it walks, and as such the skin becomes very tough and calloused.
Possupials have excellent endurance, and can hang from a tree branch for weeks without showing any signs of fatigue. Their tails are already fully developed at birth, allowing the babes to hang on trees while their parents forage for the bugs and berries that make up their diet.
One of the fastest Pokemon alive, Torchula strikes with its razor sharp fangs faster than the human eye can see. When hunting its prey, it lurks in a fiery burrow, where temperatures can reach up to 300°C. When anything draws near, it leaps out and drags the unlucky creature into its lair with near-unbreakable strings of napalm-like web.
When hunting, Arignus will douse the flames on its head. Before striking, the flames will flare up, startling the prey. Arignus then injects a powerful venom from its “nose” stinger and drags them back to its lair.
Quick, agile and cunning, Flarachnid hunts down its prey and lassos them with its flaming web. Once they are immobilized, it hauls its prey back to the searing inferno of its web for later consumption. Its powerful legs allow it to leap over 30 feet in a single bound.
There are few creatures in the dark gloom of the ocean’s depths that are so feared as the Pokemon Lumingius. Its massive fangs, immense muscles and enchanting lures make it an unrivalled predator in the abyssal trenches in which it makes its home.
What once were short stumpy legs are now muscular appendages for slow trolling along the ocean floor. The thin membrane extending down its legs act as flippers ideal for outmaneuvering it’s quarry and escaping larger predators in the deep sea. With it’s newfound ability to chase down prey, Gillumina’s bio-luminescent spots and stalks are re-purposed to attract mates, or ward off any males looking to expand their territory.
In the unimaginable depths of the darkest stretches of the ocean, Meloumin slithers across the murky seafloor, dots of brilliant blue bioluminescence guiding its way, acting both as methods of communication to other Meloumin, and as a lure for unwary prey. Due to the extreme pressure constantly exerted on it, it has grown exceptionally strong, allowing it to take on prey much larger than itself. New owners are encouraged not to get too close to its small, but powerful jaws.
