Maybe not, for the same reason golbat wouldn’t be blood/flying. Draining fluids does not necessarily make for a blood typing.
Accelgor? Perhaps. I always thought it would be better as bug/dark or bug/fighting due to it being like a ninja/superhero kind of thing.
z-nogyrop said: Wouldn't the Goomy line fit as Dragon/Greasy? Also, I think Gulpin and Swalot could easily fit as pure Greasy types (unless that's not a thing that's allowed, in that case Poison/Greasy). As for Blood... This is a stretch, but maybe Zangoose and Seviper? They do have red markings and a "blood feud", after all...
Ehh, I think goomy is fine as pure dragon. It also gets the Hydration ability which wouldn’t make any sense for a greasy type to have since they’re immune to water.
But I see what you mean with the others. Gulpin would be better off as poison/greasy since changing the primary type only works well if it was originally normal, since that’s kind of like a placeholder typing. Zangoose and seviper make a lot of sense.
Good point, but that would mean there weren’t any poison/flying types any more! That doesn’t seem very fair.
Also they don’t have quite the same level of control over blood that blood types do. I mean they still drink blood but then again most pokemon drink water - that doesn’t make them water types.
Anonymous said: Are there any Pokemon that have been updated to become Grease or Blood types?
Well heartshock and pacetaker were originally dark/electric but I made them blood instead of dark when I started using blood.
As for canon pokemon, I’m not sure. Maybe muk would become poison/greasy? Lickilicky would probably make a good greasy type too, as well as any food-based pokemon. Due to the child-friendly nature of the games there isn’t currently anything that would suit the blood type though.
Ability: Rock Head
Silurignath can mega evolve when holding a silurignathite.
Silurignath gets a much bigger mouth when it mega evolves in order to accommodate the several miniature mouths inside it. Every single tooth still crackles with electricity. This all means that the pokemon gets greater Attack and a sharp increase in Defence.
The pokemon’s skin also toughens, shown by how it now has the Rock Head ability, allowing it to safely make use of moves like Wild Charge and Double Edge without the recoil damage.
[I don’t even know what this is any more. it started off as a mix between a caecilian and a catfish but now it’s just ??? what is happening aah]
Flounderp can mega evolve when holding a flounderpite.
Upon mega evolving flounderp greatly improves its powers of psychokinesis such that it can harden its pollution clouds into fists. This all means an increase in Special Attack, accompanied by a sharp increase in Physical Attack up to the same level, allowing it to make use of powerful moves like Gunk Shot and Psycho Cut.
All this as well as gaining the Protean ability allows it to be more unpredictable in its movesets. One struggles to tell if it’s going to use Focus Blast, or Shadow Sneak, or Mud Bomb, or even Twineedle, since they all get STAB. However, the pokemon’s Defences are kinda meh so it’s most likely to be seen as a late game sweeper.
[I’m starting to think that mega evolutions are just an excuse for the pokemon designers to say ‘this is how I wish I’d made the pokemon look to begin with’]

Why? Four is enough surely.
Pestilence is the pop culture interpretation of conquest. I had never even heard of conquest even being canonically one of the horsemen until I looked it up on wikipedia just now.
I may do a chaos pokemon. But it will not be a legendary because I have an idea of how it may evolve with the fractal stone.
You shall have four bugmen. That is it.
Also giving me advice/ideas/telling me what to do severely decreases the chances that I will actually do the thing. Don’t do it. I draw what I want.
Ability: Lubricate (normal type moves become greasy type and gain a 30% power boost)
Vitroptera can mega evolve when holding a Vitropterite.
Vitroptera gains extra eyes upon mega evolving, as well as an increased wingspan. This causes its already high HP to get even higher, as well as boosting its Special Attack and Special Defence.
Although its Speed gets a slight drop, mega vitroptera’s new ability Lubricate makes sure almost every pokemon that doesn’t resist the greasy type runs away in fear of being hit by a base 195 STAB Hyper Beam, or worse, two base 104 STAB Tri Attacks. Now this thing is a tank if ever I saw one.
[So yeah I figured I should do some mega evolutions at some point, and what better pokemon to start with than my first starter?]
Assascythe - the death pokemon
Ability: Soul Eater (restores HP when hit by a ghost type attack)
Assascythe is a legendary pokemon. It is part of the quartet colloquially known as ‘The Four Bugmen of the Apocalypse’, and is considered to be its leader.
While the other bugmen are notoriously elusive, assascythe is the one pokemon that everyone is destined to meet once. War is found only by the violent, pestilence can be summoned exclusively by the sickly, famine will appear solely to the hungry, but death comes to anyone who waits long enough.
Assascythe is death. It isn’t just some cheap legend who happens to have the power to take lives, it is literally the bridge between the land of the living and the domain of dead souls. Anything that dies will be taken under the pokemon’s chitinous cloak and whisked away to the great beyond. Unless their soul is eaten by a litwick or something.
Due to the unchanging nature of encounters with assascythe, anyone who wishes to train death without themselves dying will have to make the ultimate sacrifice. They must give up their mortality. This seems like a good idea at first, until you realise that being immortal does not exclude you from pain or loss of body parts, or even the phenomenon known as ageing.

Thanks! People seem to like copying Sugimori’s art style, and there isn’t anything wrong with that, since it makes their stuff actually look like plausible pokemon. I just like coming up with ideas other people probably wouldn’t think of drawing - often they simply aren’t compatible with the style.
