Mahemoth and the Tusk Fossil

Mahemoth
Classification: The Mammoth Pokémon
Type: Rock/Ice
Description: During the time of the Ice Age, over 10,000 years ago, Mahemoth could be found all around the world. As the weather began to warm, these Pokémon found themselves unprepared for such climates and soon died completely out.
Evolves from Massodon at level 38

Tusk FossilTusk Fossil: A fossil from a prehistoric Pokémon that once lived in the snow. It looks as if it could be piece of a tusk.

Trivia: The adaptations of Mahemoth that allow it to live in the cold include a layer of fat and a thick fur coat. If put into warm weather, these two adaptations will cause the Pokémon to quickly overheat, hence the reason for its die-out.

Lunatue and Solem

Lunatue
Lunatue
Classification: The Meteorite Pokémon
Type: Rock/Psychic
Description: The rocks that make up its body come straight from the Moon and are connected via a low level telekinetic field. If it loses part of its body, it can be replaced by nearby rocks.
Evolves from Lunatone by leveling up in the vicinity of Mt. Corona

Solem
Solem
Classification: The Meteorite Pokémon
Type: Rock/Psychic
Description: It is believed that once it has absorbed a significant amount of cosmic energy, Solrock are able to change their form to better match their environment. Having landed on Earth, their form bodies suited for terrestrial living.
Evolves from Solrock by leveling up in the vicinity of Mt. Corona

Trivia: It had previously only been a rumor that Lunatone and Solrock come from outer space, but with recent leaps in space exploration made in Tenno, the rumor has been confirmed as true. Both Lunatue and Solem are Evolutions induced by a terrestrial environment mixed with an unknown cosmic energy radiated in Mt. Corona. Lunatone (and hence Lunatue) is version-exclusive to Luna Version while Solrock (and hence Solem) is version-exclusive to Terra Version. Both can be found in Sol Version.

Classification: The Space Warrior Pokémon
Type: Rock/Fighting
Description: Meteormight’s fists can hit with the force of a meteorite hitting the Earth’s surface. It can retract its limbs in order to hurl itself at an opponent with an even greater force.
Evolves from Meteorfight at level 34

Trivia: Having been intensely heated up in their entry into the Earth’s atmosphere, the rocky surface of Meteormight has been extremely hardened, allowing for both a powerful offense and defense.

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.

In addition, the Attackdex/Abilitydex has been updated with these Pokémon’s signature moves and abilities. Also, make sure to visit my Fan Fiction profile page to vote on which game you would pick.

Episode 11 Review

The first gym battle has finally arrived. When I initially planned for this series, I only planned up to this episode, so from this point on, I’m winging it. Crate is of course a Rock-Type Gym Leader, like Brock, Roxanne, and Roark before him. I always liked the tradition of having a Rock-Type Gym Leader as the first, and I’m disappointed to see them fall away from that in Unova and Kalos (especially with Kalos being the first region to have a Rock-Type leader who isn’t the first one). Similar to how Crate has his meteorite hunter profession, all of the Tenno Gym Leaders will have a space-based or related side job/inspiration.

Episode 6 Review

I don’t know if any of you have ever noticed, but Brock-based episodes seem to be very rare in Pokémon. It pretty much comes down to when one of his Pokémon evolve, or he catches a new one. Even then, he may not get his own episode when one of those things happen. I hope to change that. Of course, I haven’t done so well so far, seeing as this is my first one, and its one where Brock catches a Pokémon. Another thing of note, it’s always been my personal opinion that when a gym leader is traveling with Ash, that gym leader should capture mostly Pokémon of the type of gym they have. That means that Brock should be catching Rock-Types, like Meteorfight. So far, the only gym leader to really have followed that trend was Misty. Brock, Cilan, Iris, and Clemont have all strayed from their gym’s type.

Episode 5: One Foot in the Cave

At long last, Episode 5 is here.

Ash, Brock, and Brenda get lost in the vast Crater Gate cavern system. After being split up by a mob of Rock-Type Pokémon, will the group ever be able find their way out of these treacherous caves?

The Pokédex has been updated with the contents of this episode.

Also, the Pokédex page has now been updated with sprite images of a few select Pokémon created by my brother and proof reader. Check them out.
