SPIKE WANT! by FawkesTheSkarmory SPIKE WANT! by FawkesTheSkarmory
Well, I'm back from my exams! Now I can submit some new fakemon designs and whatnot, starting with this favorite of mine I made last week.

Based on a tuatara (Sphenodon genus)! Oh, and something you probably already know. ;)

328 - SPHEENY (Sphenodon+Teeny)
- Psychic/Dragon
- Reptile Pokémon
- 2'3"/ 21 lbs
- Ability: Shed Skin/Anticipation (Magic Guard)
DAY: This rare Pokemon is protected from harm by its thick scales, which it renews by shedding its skin and eating gemstones.
NIGHT: The third eye on SPHEENY's forehead makes it a superb tracker. This eye can even see things that would otherwise be invisible.

329 - SPHEDIUM (Sphenodon+Medium)
- Psychic/Dragon
- ProtoReptile Pokémon
- Evolves from SPHEENY at Level 45
- 6'3"/ 130 lbs
- Ability: Shed Skin/Anticipation (Magic Guard)
DAY: SPHEDIUM resembles fossils of reptile Pokemon from 200 million years ago. Scientists believe that it is the last living member of an widespread, ancient lineage.
NIGHT: It relies on its third eye to find precious stones, which it chews with its powerful jaws. It hoards treasures in big piles in its lair, and guards them jealously.

330 - SPHENORMUS (Sphenodon+Enormous)
- Psychic/Dragon
- AncientReptile Pokémon
- Evolves from SPHEDIUM at Level 60
- 20'8"/ 378 lbs
- Ability: Shed Skin/Anticipation (Magic Guard)
DAY: Despite its dinosaur-like appearance, it is only distantly related to other dinosaur Pokemon. It grows slowly even by reptile standards, but can live for very long periods, with some individuals surviving for centuries.
NIGHT: Ferocious and territorial, it can nonetheless be appeased with an offering of treasure. It Detects enemies using its third eye, and confronts them with rock-crushing teeth, vicious claws, and scorching blasts of green fire.

Start: Leer, Scratch, Lock-On, Bite
Level-Up: Miracle Eye, Roar, Dig, Tail Slap, Fury Swipes, Flamethrower, Psybeam, Confusion, Slam, Extrasensory, Stomp, Crunch, Psychic, Dragon Claw, DragonBreath, Dragon Pulse, Dragon Rush, Hyper Beam; Hidden Power, Zen Headbutt, Thief, Psycho Cut; Fire Blast, Dragon Tail, Psycho Boost, Draco Meteor
Notable HM/TM: Strength, Cut, Rock Climb, Fire Fang, Twister, Psyshock, Psystrike, Giga Impact, Super Laser

They say it also adores RAPIDASH for some bizarre reason.

Why psychic?

Dude, I'm doing a report on Tuatara. Good job. This looks cool, esp final form.
I would love to see a psychic dragon. I'm not much of a pokemon guy, so I wonder how that would work out.
So in it's final form, it's a melee fighter with short bursts of green fire. Magic Gaurd-is that through the fire or 3rd eye?
I need to look up all those things from the Movepool.
Kudos on giving the Tuatara some attention, and fusing it with Spike. You just got 2 things down I've been thinking of lately.

Love it! you think I could use it in a tumblr blog? your are free to refuse I just wanted to check with the artist first
FawkesTheSkarmory Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If that blog is devoted to showcasing peoples' fakemon, PROVIDED THAT YOU CREDIT THE ORIGINAL ARTIST, then I'd be happy to have word be spread about my designs. But otherwise, nope - there's a risk of people using what I made without my permission and if they don't get my permission, they steal it. This is also why I prefer not to let people use my designs for sprite work, as they'll probably try to make them their own without my approval.

Just to be thorough, though, I'd like to see the tumblr blog in question. That way I can be sure nothing bad will come of our shared decision.

Looks like an uber, wingless dragon, or a dino-dragon, which is utterly awesome in my book. Excellent.

Nice Spike reference

This is pretty cool!
dramonfanatic Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012
is that eye in the middle of his head real or fake?
FawkesTheSkarmory Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Real tuataras actually have a fully functional, photoreceptive third eye on their foreheads. Of course, it's covered in skin and most pronounced in juveniles, but it's still an interesting feature that translates well into the Pokemon universe.

Great job!

Although I'm not particularly fond of MLP, I did get this reference as soon as I saw it. :P
Combusken11 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
The MLP reference makes this fakemon 20% cooler.
MCsaurus Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012
Whoa. A Psychic/Dragon-type Dragon Pokémon and he's look like Spike the Dragon from My Little Pony, really cool. I think I like it.
xXVen-nificentXx Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Spike the Dragon!
