Heala

Heala
Classification: The Antivenom Pokémon
Type: Dragon/Poison
Description: Heala may have a nasty venom, but they are better known for the natural antivenom they produce, which can neutralize nearly any poison.
Evolves into Curemodo at level 38

Trivia: Heala’s antivenom works not just to counteract the effects of venom, but other toxins, such as pollutants, poisons, and even radioactivity. Because of this, ample supplies of its antivenom are kept on hand at all time at most hospitals around the world.

Also, Heala’s signature move, Detox, has been added to the Atackdex.

Heliosol Ascended Form

Heliosol-A

Classification: The Solar Pokémon
Type: Dragon/Light
Description: It was given the task of constructing the cornerstone of the Solar System, the Sun, by the Cosmic Architect. When it absorbs ample cosmic energy, it will ascend to a higher form.
Does Not Evolve

In Pokémon Sol Version, Team Planetary takes their plans to the next level. Instead of simply taking control of the legendary Pokémon Heliosol, they use a special machine to force Heliosol to absorb as much cosmic energy as they can force into it. This energy is what they have gathered from Meteoric Shards, the Cosmic Guardians, and Terratlas and Seluna, so it is the energy of the Cosmic Architect. This energy causes Heliosol to ascend into a new, more divine, form. In this form, Heliosol has access to a facsimile of the power the Cosmic Architect possesses. Also in this form, its Fire-Type changes into a Dragon-Type, and most of its Fire-Type moves transform into equivalent Dragon-Type moves. However, Heliosol cannot maintain this form for long, and it will soon transform back into its Regular Form. After recharging its cosmic energy reserves, it will ascend once more.

This form changing is controlled by Heliosol’s new ability, Ascension Cycle. At the end of every turn in battle, Ascension Cycle will transform Heliosol into the form it isn’t. So Regular Form will transform into Ascended Form, and Ascended Form will transform into Regular Form. When it changes form, certain moves it knows will also change mid-battle, meaning that Heliosol could potentially have access to eight different moves in one battle. See the in-depth page for more details on what moves will change. Whatever form Heliosol is in when the battle ends is the form it will begin the next battle in.

A Heliosol captured in Sol Version will have the ability Ascension Cycle replacing Pressure, which would have been its second ability in Luna and Terra Version, and therefore it cannot have Pressure as an ability if captured in Sol. One captured in Luna or Terra Version and traded over to Sol Version will maintain Pressure as its second ability. As Ascension Cycle is not an ability in Luna and Terra Versions, a Heliosol with Ascension Cycle will have it replaced by Pressure in Luna and Terra, but it will return if traded back to Sol Version.

Also, Heliosol Ascended Form’s signature move, Artificial Genesis, and ability, Ascension Cycle, have been added to the Attackdex and Abilitydex page, and the artwork of it can be viewed on the Gallery page.

Episode 77 Review

For a while I’ve been messing around with the idea of Dragon/Poison-Type Pokémon that’s based off of a Gila monster and evolves into a Komodo dragon, but I was never able to come up with a solid concept. When attempting to come up with a name for said Gila monster Pokémon, I remembered that Gila is not pronounce gil-a, but rather hil-a with an h sound instead of a g. When trying to come up with names based off of that, I thought of the name Heala, and the concept of an antivenom Pokémon came to mind pretty fast. I felt like it was a unique enough idea to go ahead and make the Pokémon. Basically, this entire episode formed as a way to display this concept. It might have been a tad on the morbid/violent side for Pokémon, but that kind of came with the territory.

Serpenstar

Serpenstar
Classification: The Snake Constellation Pokémon
Type: Dragon/Light
Description: Due to its serpent nature and the pattern of light along the length of its body, this Pokémon would appear to be the origin of the constellation Serpens. This Pokémon is known for its majestic beauty and serene movements.
Evolves from Galacerta at level 30 and into Dracosmic at level 50 at night

Trivia: It is unknown why Galacerta loses its limbs when it Evolves into Serpenstar, and then regains them when Evolving once more into Dracosmic. Some suggest that it allows it to better adapt to its serpentine body, and then regains its limbs once it has mastered its new form. Serpens is an actual constellation. It’s middle segment is noticeably missing because the snake depicted in Serpens is being held by another constellation, Ophiuchus, the Serpent Bearer.

Episode 22 Review

Some of the more observant of the show, might notice that this episode is similar to the Diamond and Pearl episode Top-Down Training, where Paul challenged Cynthia to battle, only to lose completely against her Garchomp. In all honesty, this episode was a copy of that one, but I couldn’t resist. It allowed for a good amount of character development for Ryu, and it allowed for us to meet Galileo. And since Galileo’s signature Pokémon, Dracosmic, is a Dragon-Type, it was a perfect opportunity. I actually really liked this episode. I think it might be one of my favorites so far. In addition to seeing the the battle, we also got to see Ash acting serious for a change, and Brock giving his advice. I felt like it was a touching scene. For anyone who might curious, here’s the just completed image of Galileo:

Dracosmic

Dracosmic

Classification: The Dragon Constellation Pokémon
Type: Dragon/Light
Description: The larger points of light on Dracosmic’s scales align perfectly with the stars in the constellation Draco, leading historians to speculate that it was the ancients’ basis for the constellation. Dracosmic have the ability to float, and will often be found flying during the night, when their bodies blend in with the starry sky, but people rarely realize what they’re seeing.
Evolves from Serpenstar at level 50 at night.

Trivia: Dracosmic is Tenno’s “regional dragon,” similar to Dragonite, Kingdra, Salamence, etc. It is the only Pokémon that can learn the move Draco Meteor through level up, making it its signature move. For the sake of comparison, the real-world constellation Draco looks like the following image:

I’ve also completed Ryu’s Character Guide section and added a new section to the New Mechanics page dealing with Signature Moves. Check them out.

The New Galacerta

As I am sure many of you have noticed by now, the Galacerta sprite was a little off when compared to other sprites and not in line with the Pokémon style. After all this time, my brother has kindly provided an updated version, one that fits in much better.

Galacerta

Galacerta
Classification: The Lizard Constellation Pokémon
Type: Dragon
Description: Galacerta spend the entire day living inside of caves. Only during the night do they go into the open in order to find food. Galacerta use the starry pattern on its skin to communicate with others. It is believed that Galacerta inspired the constellation Lacerta.
Evolves into Serpenstar at level 30.

Trivia: Lacerta is a real constellation of a lizard. The larger stars on Galacerta’s body reflect the pattern of said constellation.
