ARMS OF SHADOW by lydario ARMS OF SHADOW by lydario
part 1 of 2!

so i have two pokemon lines that are related... both being squids! one is based on dark, and one light!

JARINK-water/dark-MURK-when this pokemon uses a dark type attack, the foe's accuracy is lowered slightly

so his name is like JAR and INK... pretty obvious ;D
umum... his shape was to resemble an inkwell with tentacles of ink... the point is supposed top be kinda like the point of a pen protruding... to reference a beak ;D

"It uses it's small beak to burrow maze-like dwellings into rock formations. When scared or angry it releases a cloud of ink as a magnified projection of itself, which it then manipulates to scare off foes."

---[EVOLVES: lv. 38]---

FOUNTANK-water/dark-MURK-when this pokemon uses a dark type attack, the foe's accuracy is lowered slightly

FOUNtain pen+TANK(canister)=FOUNTANK

he was designed to be shaped like a fountain pen with tentacles and a beak ending in the tip of a fountain pen

"It lurks just below the area where the reaches and uses it's ink to draw strands to entangle it's prey. It has been refered to as the living shadow by seafaring folks."

now these guys i originally wanted to share a common form with [link] but seeing as how the basic stages are so simple (and i don't want to pull a freakin' mantyke and make an unnecessary form) i made it possible for them to come from the same egg... the time of day determines which pokemon emerges... and as an extra detail, FOUNTANK and TEZLAMP will do everything within their power to ensure their babies hatch at the right time

JARINK and FOUNTANK are to LYDARIO

(Part of the reason people may not have responded is that your original comment seemed to be an advertisement, haha)

argh... your colouring is just freaking amazing, *drooooool* ive asked very many fakemon creators to do australian pokemon, they get so angry! *hint* :)

:iconlydario:
lydario Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011
They get angry because they have a lot to do themselves in addition to taking requests... which most of them don't. I happen to find a lot of the flora and fauna of Australia to be quite wonderful... but I don't take requests... not to mention I'm not really doing pokemon right now.

Thank you though.

im thinking ill do it myself :) haha, my own pokemon! >:D haha, and yea. ok. i dont mind request, gives me something to do when i have nothing to do. BUT, for the next few weeks im study orientated for my final WACE exams. YAY, and yea, the flora and fauna here are AMAZING, even the natural landscapes give some awesome ideas, try being in sydney during winter and having an iceberg float in :P thats weird.

Yes, but given the sheer volume of requests I and other receive, I just don't bother doing them because it's not fair to those who don't get them.

O.O This is the most awesome Fakemon I've ever seen. If this would be an existing Pkmn, it would be my 2nd fav (noone can replace Honchkrow). So amazingly original and nicely drawn. I... I'm speachless.

hm,I like the art work.But there have been other pokemons with the same mix of types,Water/dark.When I see this pokemon i first thought of the depth of the ocean,the dark world no men can reach,jst like Relicanth.In my opinion,Dark/Poison mix of types would be New,unique,and fun.While still be able to learn water attack moves.

:iconlydario:
lydario Featured By Owner May 24, 2010
Same with the others, water kind embodies his... well... body. He would however learn a plethora of poison types, and tezlamp would learn a lot of steel type moves. I could like to make a pokemon that lives in water that isn't a water type, but I think deep sea kinda requires water type.

And for the record, I appreciate all the comments, but the copy/paste thing you did with this comment and the one on my electric squids... I don't now how to put it, but it kinda rubs me the wrong way.

lol,I'm sorry about that copy paste thing i did.I realy had no intention of making it a negating comment.Just sharing my opinion about both of your creations and as they were alike i just used the same words,sorry about that =/

Ah, don't worry. Reusing a block of text is fine, but I would argue that it's not ok to do it with the same person. If you have essentially the same thing to tell two different people, then go for it, but I wouldn't do it with the same person... if it weren't for the fact that you left me a bunch of comment (which showed you cared) I would probably think you really didn't care all that much.

Thanks.Yes,I understand what you mean about giving the same opinion to two different people and all.And yeah i do cared,for art and the artists that bring his imagination and thought to life with a "pencil and paper".Like i had sed,i love your work.and i totally agree with KooboriSapphire.

I'll be waiting for your next fantastic peice =D

Dude, you really need to submit these Pokemon to the Pokemon club/Nintendo. I swear they'd make them worth gaming material!
