DYLegendaries by lydario DYLegendaries by lydario
these be my legendaries... fa sho

i took :iconrandom-crazyness: 's idea for names... they were greek gods mixed with themes of each

ARLEO- Ares-greek god of offensive war, Leo... thats the basis... i liked it :D

ARLEO-fighting-CATALYST- effects of super effective hits are assigns randomly

"ARLEO was the first of an ancient trio, ruling over matters of conflict. In those times, it was said to settle and mediate conflict between forces. when it dissapeared chaos insued."

MERCUVIAN- Mercury-Greek god of travel, i liked this idea as well

MERCUVIAN-flying-CATALYST- effects of super effective hits are assigns randomly

"MERCUVIAN in the past was the second of the trio. it was said to carry the matters of the land on its wings. when it dissapeared, chaos insued as civilizations became isolated"

GAIARUS- Gaia, personification of the Earth, Taurus... again... awsome

GAIARUS-rock-CATALYST- effects of super effective hits are assigns randomly

"GAIARUS the third in the trio, was the overseer of the land itself, overseeing prosperity of cultures. when it dissapeared chaos insued as paranoia and jealousy gripped the lands."

there they are, they rock hard, eh?

im still kinda dupleased with their flavo text, but as time goes on, their discriptions may evolve

next comes their merger :}

ARLEO, MERCUVIAN, and GAIARUS are all © to ME! no stealing

SIDE NOTE- i finished these a while back... jsut never uploaded them... for some reason :/




(wow... DA didnt load my description... sorry to those i kinda "yelled" at about not reading... im sorry)

Nope, but technically it's already been done in Rayquaza, Groudon, and Kyogre.

Well I can see that....but they don't take any resemblance or relevance to the tales tho. imo

Nah they really don't especially in rayquaza's case, but I think the land sea and sky parts were the main focus of them.

These guys have since completely changed in concept, and instead of being a chimera are now based on a Cherub, since all the components are already here. To see their new designs check my sprite dex. Their names are now Aetoshim, leoshim, and Bovishim, and their joint form is Armobiel. Each name comes from the greek origin of their basis, an eagle, lion and ox (though bovi just referenced cattle) and are combined with the word "Ishim" which is a word used in the hierarchy of angels to refer to an anthropomorphic angel.

Their purpose however is still largely the same, separated they embody the elements of war, but together a harmonious existence, which is where Armobiel comes from. Armo (don't remember the full root of the word) references harmony in Greek, and Kerubiel was one of few Cherubs who were actually referred to as having a name.

Thanks, I try to incorporate the aspects I find most attractive in official pokemon into my own, and for the most part it's that kind of research. There are some that I'm only now realizing are much more subtle than I has one thought.

Of course. I am merely a very pernickety person and couldn't help mentioning your confusion of roman and greek gods. Apologies.

Oh god, I'm so sorry ;-; I didn't mean to offend anybody, but when I look back I completely agree with you - I should have said it more politely, but I went on like a stupid fool. SORRY! How could I act like that? I really hope you forgive me .__.

its fine i guess... just... think about things before typingthem, but i do understand... they arent really exciting... but i kinda like them plain... :]

since legendaries just get more and more complicated... i figured i'd make a simple one... or three >.>

Ah. I will consider every word in next negative comment.

Yeah, the legendaries are really complicated, so I can see why you made them like that.

i dunno if someone already asked this but why r blue-dudes hands different? especially since the other two have (bilaterally symmetrical)?-"woah"... hands?
Reply
:iconlydario:
lydario Featured By Owner May 28, 2007
im not wuer what youre getting at... all of them have arms that are more or less unique to themselves... i mean mercavian has winglike hands sith claws, arleo has paw like hands, and gaiarus has nubby hooves...

and his name is arleo
Reply
:icongentleartillery:
GentleArtillery Featured By Owner May 28, 2007
I think he means that the left arm of the blue one, Arleo, differs from the right arm of it.
Reply
:iconlydario:
lydario Featured By Owner May 29, 2007
oh yea, i think i see what you mean... theyre supposed to be symetrical... but that arms is a slightly different angle and so... i guess it would be see na bit different
