WORK IN PROGRESS

commissioned by :iconcallyrose:

EDIT: Basically done, but any opinions on the update would be very much appreciated :) im quite chuffed with how its turned out after the edits and changes, thanks so much guys!

Galvantula

The Galvantula is the named adult form of the Joltik Pokémon. A large spider like creature of electrical powers and carnivorous tastes, it takes a very brave trainer to attempt to catch one, let alone train one. It is not unheard of for trainers to go missing in the forests where they make their home, and they are cunning predators.
The Galvantula has the unique ability to spin wiry, metallic material. It is this material that allows it to utilize its electric abilities to their fullest. Their webs are vast, spanning several dozens of metres if given time and are then left whilst the spider Pokémon waists in the shadows. The Pokémon is a master of ambush prey and floods the web with a small but paralytic electrical charge that singes the nervous system on contact, much like a tazer gun.

Any Pokémon to fly or fall, or walk into one of these traps is instantly stunned, and then paralysed by the Pokémon itself. They rarely wake up.

In the training world, Joltik are much easier to train, but still maintain their predatory nature, though small, their electrical powers are formidable, and only get stronger with age and training. Most scientists and professionals of the unova region believe that the Galvantula line is a dangerous one, and as such, their training is often watched with caution. However, this is not to say that they are any less or more dangerous than any other Pokémon if trained poorly. Indeed, if trained well, they can be very friendly, as friendly as large spiders can be at least. To that end, they remain a strange Pokémon to be trained In any circumstance, but prized for the exotic status, after all, their ‘wire silk’ is highly prized on the market.

Galvantula breed every three years and there is a substantial number of females over males, who are much larger in size. This is primarily due to the fact that females can eat the males after breeding (a lot of males are therefore sterilized so that their urges to do not lead them to their deaths) and clutches of around 300 or so are birthed a few weeks afterwards. Once hatched, the mother may eat some of her children, and it is for this reason that the Joltik babies flee to make their own way. This deadly instinct of the parent fades after a few weeks after her clutch hatches, but it goes to show that they are deadly, even to their own kind.



Zoroark

There are very few Pokémon as sly or as devious as the Zoroark family. The Zoroark are large bipedal and quadrupedel were-fox Pokémon, with large, shaggy manes that taper towards the back these manes are filled with spines that follow the line of its back that erect when the Pokémon is agitated or frightened. They are renowned for their deceptive and illusion abilities, but strangely, they are not psychic types. They do have the ability however, to weave darkness into illusionary effects.

Dark Pokémon and psychic Pokémon are often considered polar opposites, but the powers of zoroark have led scientists to beg to differ. Indeed, the Zoroarks ability to weave and think of its illusions as it casts them demand a huge amount of brain power to back. This illusion technique is allowed by the Zoroark manipulating shadows and darkness to cover or create light, which in turn it shapes to its own design. As you can imagine, this makes it an incredibly intelligent Pokémon, able to effectively recreate any plant, Pokémon, attacking move or even whole areas to its own design. They are feared for this reason, as the creatures are also vengeful if provoked. There have been cases of trainers being driven mad from the illusions a betrayed zoroark gifted to them.

Zoroak live in family groups, but do not socialize outside of them, cubs are birthed after a small gestation period, and are already able to weave and cast illusions of very primitive designs at 5-6 months. Zorua, the cubs of Zoroark, are playful and mischievous, but lack the aggression of their parents. It is for this reason that they are captured young, due to their lacking ability to hide properly and their friendly nature. An adult zoroark being captured has never been documented, and they are incredibly rare, almost impossible to find in the wild.
Like many rare or dangerous Pokémon, breeding schemes are set up to introduce a captive populace for trainers, cubs are gifted to young trainers in various regions and are allowed to train under the blessing of their mother and/or father. Given that these Pokémon are incredibly powerful, intelligent and dangerous, it seemed the best decision when faced with the alternative of taking a baby away from its mother.


Purloin

The cat Pokémon Purloin is a mischievous and cunning one. They often find themselves at odds with creatures such as Meowth and Murkrow because of their love of treasure and shiny items. They are small mammalian Pokémon with an odd colouration for a natural creature. Scientists believe that over time, purloin grew to change its coat to become more noticeable to humans. Being a predatory Pokémon of smaller animals, it would need to hunt yes, but if taken in by a trainer, these things are given to it for free. The large eyes, soft, smooth fur and playful attitude are all part of its ruse to get what it desires, and evolutionary disguise to make people love it. Scientists agree that it is a remarkable evolutionary trait.

Purloin, despite their naturally deceptive behaviour, are very loyal Pokémon. They will steal from their trainer to be sure, but the more loyal they are, the more likely it is that you will find the item on your bed or in a draw later in the day. They often steal items from other trainers and present them as gifts to their own, leading to a lot of trouble regarding training in earlier years of their discovery.
The Pokémon are not solitary animals as kittens, the adult form of the Purloin is the Liepard, a much larger panther like Pokémon, who mates and then looks after her litter of kittens. As young Pokémon, they often play amongst themselves and become socially aware of each other up until 5 or 6 months. This is usually when the mother brings in items of worth that she has collected over the years. It is is this that sets off their lust for treasure of any sort and the kittens will then seek to steal the items from each other, causing tension and then eventually separation into the wild a few months later.

These Pokémon do not do well in groups because of a result of this, much like other cat Pokémon, they prefer to be the trainers favourite, and sulk when they acknowledge that they are not, or feel they are not. They are powerful when trained correctly, but very temperamental if raised spoilt.



Golett

Golett are a species almost unique to the mountains and caverns of the Unova region. Little is known of how they are actually conceived or created, only that several of them are created each year at a few known locations. Despite this and their populace growing still, it is safe to assume that they have a core breeding or creation location that remains unknown. Golett are rock based in their design, made up of dozens of large rocks, and held together by a powerful electromagnetic force of some kind that allows them to move their bodies. The light that shines from their eyes and areas of their bodies has often been described as a ‘spark’ of sorts that gives the Pokémon movement, life and even feelings and a temperament.

Because little is known of their origins, few are ever bred in captivity professionally. All is known is that once every 15 years, golett and their greater forms, known as Golurk ( a much larger and formidable Pokémon) leave for one day and return the next. The populace explodes a month after this event.

Golett are naturally powerful fighters, being made out of various strong materials and structures and despite their ability to rebuild themselves if damaged, they are still shown to feel pain. They are fiercely loyal creatures, despite their autonomous behaviour and do not hesitate to attack if they or those they care about feel threatened. It is because of this that they are prized amongst trainers as guards and security of sorts. Golett often decorate themselves using rocks and stones and even shells they find. This has intrigued scientists for years, owing to the fact that no two golett can ever look the same as they are made up from various rocks and stones, along with anything else they decide to add to their bodies and framework. Because of this, scientists believe that the spark within them is in fact the Pokémon, and the rocks around it as simply a form is chooses to forge for itself so that it might experience the world around it.

Spiders actually tend to be pretty good mummies, wolf spiders will even carry their babies around with them until they get big enough to care for them selves.

It's live bearing fish like guppies who'll eat their own children.
