Classification: The Nemesis Pokémon
Description: A destructive force that is the opposite of the Cosmic Architect. This Pokémon periodically causes mass extinctions on Earth.
Does Not Evolve
Trivia: Little is known about this mysterious Pokémon that opposes the Cosmic Architect in many ancient myths. It seems to be an entity of pure destruction and malice that lives on the extreme edge of the Solar System. It can exert its sinister influence over vast distances to cause rampant destruction. It is believed to be the cause the periodic mass extinctions that plague the Earth, including the one that wiped out the Fossil Pokémon.
Nemex’s name combines the concepts of Nemesis and Planet X, two theoretical celestial bodies on the fringe of the Solar System whose gravitational influence possibly leads to mass extinctions on Earth. Nemesis would be a brown dwarf star and Planet X a ninth planet. Concepts of both are woven into Nemex’s design. It is the second of Tenno’s event-exclusive Legendaries.
Signature Move and Ability:
The will of the user is exerted from afar, bringing disaster to the target.
Cycle of Destruction
All other Pokémon take damage at the end of each turn.
Classification: The Asteroid Pokémon
Description: According to myth, this Pokémon was originally a piece of rock in the asteroid belt that was given life by the Cosmic Architect. Now it serves the Architect by watching over the solar system.
Does not Evolve
Trivia: The name Showakusei comes from the Japanese word for asteroid. Showakusei lives deep beneath Tenno Minor in the Crater Cave, a recently discovered extension of the Crater Gate, where it guards a Grand Meteoric Shard, just like the other Cosmic Guardians.
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.
Classification: The Cosmonaut Pokémon
Description: This Pokémon’s extremely thick fur coat acts as an insulator and pressure vessel. Along with its ability extend an air-tight helmet-like extension around its head, this makes it the perfect Pokémon for use in space missions.
Does not evolve
Trivia: Muttnik was the first terrestrial Pokémon to ever be sent into outer space. The data gathered in these test flights paved the way to Tenno’s first maned space missions.
Muttnik is inspired by the real-world dog Laika, one of the first animals to go to space in real life. Laika was sent into space aboard the Sputnik II, hence the name Muttnik.
Classification: The Peaceful Pokémon
Description: The branch carried by Calumba is said to exude a scent that can soothe even the most savage of beasts. Therefore, wherever Calumba travels, peace and harmony follows it.
Evolves into Dovine with use of a Shiny Stone
Trivia: The branch that Calumba carries comes from a very special and rare tree that only grows in one part of the world. Therefor, all Calumba travel to this place early in their life to select their branch that they will use to spread peace.
The name Calumba is derived from the words calm and Columba, the genus that the dove is classified under.
Classification: The Solar Pokémon
Description: This Pokémon was revered by the ancients of Tenno as a solar deity. It was known in times past to occasionally descend to Earth from its home in space to temporarily inhabit temples and shrines built in its honor.
Does Not Evolve
Trivia: Heliosol’s name is a combination of the name Helios, the Greek Titan of the Sun, and sol, the Latin word and scientific name for the Sun. In Tenno’s history and legends this Pokémon is highly associated with the Sun. In Luna and Terra Versions this Pokémon can be found in the ruins of Solar Peak, the highest summit of Mt. Corona, but only after the player has defeated Terratlas/Seluna and entered the Hall of Fame. There seems to be more to this mysterious Pokémon than meets the eye.
Gathering solar energy, the user unleashes an intense storm of charged particles. The attack is powered up if used when the sunlight is harsh.
When the Pokémon attacks or is sent into a battle, it turns the sunlight harsh.
Classification: The Hyper-Intelligent Pokémon
Description: Delphin is one of the most intelligent species of Pokémon known. While it actually breathes air, it must live in the water so that it can use it as a constant coolant for its hyperactive brain, which would otherwise overheat. It expels the heated water through the blowhole on its back.
Does not Evolve
Trivia: Since the cooling requirements of their massive brains has forced Delphin to permanently live underwater, this has hindered their ability to interact with the world around them, such as losing the ability to grasp and move objects. To move past this hindrance, the already large brain of Delphin grew even larger and developed telekinetic powers to compensate. It’s name is derived from Delphinus, the scientific term for a dolphin, but shortened to sound more like Dolphin. Also, it calls to mind Delphi, as in the Oracle of Delphi, in reference to its psychic powers.
