Mega Ferntress

Mega Ferntress
Description: The ferns that encompass Ferntress now grow even stronger and gain additional strength by weaving into armor plating, increasing its Defense and Special Defense. The shields on its arms are the strongest points on its body. Its lower legs have also grown quite strong, so that it may better withstand incoming attacks.
Mega Stone: Ferntrite Ferntressite
Type: Grass/Ground
Mega Ability: Bulletproof

Trivia: The claws on Mega Ferntress’ feet can dig down into the ground, to help it withstand incoming attacks without being forced back. While it may be able to walk on two legs after Mega Evolving, its large and bulky body is not optimized for this kind of movement. Therefore, its preference is to stand absolutely still and block any incoming attacks instead of dodging.

Ferntress

ferntress
Classification: The Fortress Pokémon
Type: Grass/Ground
Description: The ferns planted on its body at birth have now grown to encase its whole body and can repel any attack. It is unknown what this Pokémon looks like beneath its indestructible armor of foliage.
Evolves from Buffern at level 32

Trivia: Every few years Ferntress need to cast aside their armor as it grows so that larger ferns may grow in its place. However, the armor grows beneath the old, meaning that Ferntress is never left without it. Each new layer of armor that grows is not only larger, but also more intricate than the previous. This means that the age of a Ferntress can be judged by the complexity of their armor.

Seluna and Terratlas

And here they are, the cover Pokémon of Luna and Terra Versions (If you haven’t seen the actual covers yet, make sure to check out the previous post):

Seluna
Seluna

Classification: The Lunar Pokémon
Type: Dark/Rock
Description: According to myth and legend, Seluna, under the guidance of the Cosmic Architect, created all of the moons in the solar system. It’s crowning achievement is the Earth’s moon, where it is said to dwell.
Does not Evolve

Trivia: Seluna is the cover Pokémon of Luna Version. The pattern on its upper chest is meant to invoke the actual Moon. It’s name is derived from Selene, the Greek goddess of the Moon, combined with Luna, the scientific term for the Moon. It’s red eyes are meant to invoke the theme of having a “red” legendary each generation, such as Ho-oh, Groudon, Palkia (it’s more of a pink, but close enough), Reshiram (it glows red), and Yveltal, all of which are based off of Red Version and Charizard.

Terratlas
Terratlas

Classification: The Terra Pokémon
Type: Ground/Water
Description: In legend, Terratlas was created by the Cosmic Architect in order to construct the planets of the solar system. It is said to have modeled the Earth in its own image. It is rumored to live in high Earth orbit, always watching its prized creation.
Does not Evolve

Trivia: Terratlas is the cover Pokémon of Terra Version. Its name is a combination of the Latin term terra, meaning the Earth, and Atlas, the Greek Titan that held the Earth on its back. The main landmass on Terratlas’ stomach is meant look like the Kanto region, while the landmass on his shoulders (the one with the mountains) is meant to invoke Tenno, and the one on his hand with the volcano is meant to invoke Hoenn. The white on its head and feet are meant to be polar ice caps. Terratlas’ blue eyes are meant to relate it to the trend of having a blue legendary cover Pokémon, continuing the tradition of Lugia, Kyogre, Dialga, Zekrom (it glows blue), and Xerneas, all which stem from Blastoise back in Blue Version.
