Raptorist by pinafta1 Raptorist by pinafta1
Name Raptorist (Raptor+Forest)
Type Grass/Flying
Species The Forest Pokemon
Ability Overgrowth Dream World Ability Chlorophyll
About Throught its Chain, Appa-dee, and Treemu have been needing too figure out other ways of coping with predators because of being flightless. Once it evolves though it looses the need for camoflage and leg strength when it grows two powerful wings and the size it needs to be taken off most predators lists.
Raptorist is a giant of a bird type pokemon who flys high above its forest keeping a watchful eye over the location it grew. Its wings span exceeds 30 feet, and a single gust from them are enough to smother a forest fire, while the due the forms on its leafy feathers have the ability to revive fallen and burnt plants.
Evolutions
<< level 16 < Level 36

First off, let me tell you this pokemon looks great, and I appreciate your proving that you do indeed know the true meaning of the word, "raptor".

However, I don't think this pokemon fits in with the line at all. It kind of feels as if you've put all your effort into creating a super badass beast, instead of focusing your creative energy into making an interesting final form for this pokemon.

Appa-Dee and Treemu were both flightless birds with definite connection to plants. Raptorist is a flying bird whose pokedex entry doesn't describe it as resembling a plant in any way, shape or form. Given the flightless tree thing the previous two had going on, I think a moa lookalike with a bit of California redwood mixed in would make an incredible final form, but instead, it's a flying bird that has no connection to the previous two or the grass type in general besides being green.

Don't get me wrong, the design itself is fantastic, and you're a hundred percent better and drawing birds than I am, and a thousand percent better at making fakes. There is more than likely a little personal bias going on, due to my being an apparent wall against being wowed by all things plainly ferocious and deadly. This would make a fine fake in and of itself with a little tweaking, it just doesn't feel right for this line.

I'll still say that I think Appa-dee and Treemu are some of the cleverest fakes I've seen recently.

ahhh and another one XD well I agree with you on a lot of that :P I really could have made it a lot better, and I might tune it up a little later, but right now, its called the forest pokemon, it is more of a guardian/spirit of the forest, flying high above the tree tops looking over its forest. Hmmmm maybe if I change the description itll help its case a bit XD

Yeah, again, if it were a forest guardian spirit, it might have kind of worked, but you seemed a little more busy trying to make it sound like a merciless killing machine in the dex entry than tying it into the line.

Much better dex entry. That gives it a forest guardian feel very much like sceptile. Definitely sounds more like a grass type, and the evolved form of those starters.
