All-Purpose Fakemon Discussion and Development Thread


Chimera Blasphemy
Hey! How much do you like Pokémon? So much that you've found yourself making up new ones because the 800+ already in existence aren't enough for you? Well hey, same here! This thread goes out to everyone who makes or enjoys fanmade Pokémon. Whether you make new evolutions or forms for older Pokémon, Pokémon of completely new types, anything in-between, or you just want to talk about the fakemon in your favorite fangame, this should be the place for you.

I'll get the ball rolling with some creations of my own, a pair of puffin Pokémon!

Puffbill, the Puffin Pokémon
Evolves into Puffrost at level 29
Physical Appearance: Puffbill resembles a juvenile Atlantic puffin with a more upright stance. Its feathers are primarily navy blue in color, save for its underbelly and the wispy plume atop its head, both of which are white like snow. Puffbill's beak and webbed feet are both soot-grey, and its bright orange eyes glow with a youthful enthusiasm.
Height: 1’/0.3m
Weight: 3.3 lbs/1.5 kg
Ability: Crag Climber (This Pokémon takes reduced damage from Rock-type moves and Stealth Rock)
Pokedex Entry: “Puffbill dive into the sea to scoop up unsuspecting Wishiwashi. When endangered, Puffbill cough up clouds of mist to disorient their attackers.”
Base Stats:
  • HP: 55
  • Atk: 40
  • Def: 60
  • SpA: 65
  • SpD: 35
  • Spe: 55
  • BST: 310
Notable Moves: Gust, Mist, Frost Breath
Puffrost, the Puffin Pokémon
Evolves from Puffbill at level 29
Physical Appearance: Puffrost has the appearance of an adult Atlantic puffin, and it carries itself with a sterner air than its younger counterpart. Its coat has changed to a cerulean shade of blue, and though its chest feathers remain white, the crest atop its head has grown fuller and developed alternating white-and-blue stripes. Its feet and beak are now a tangerine orange, though the beak is tipped with a solid cyan frost, just as its wings are.
Height: 2’07”/0.8m
Weight: 24.3 lbs/11 kg
Ability: Crag Climber (This Pokémon takes reduced damage from Rock-type moves and Stealth Rock)
Pokedex Entry: “Smaller Puffbill follow behind the flock’s strongest Puffrost in a single-file line. Every morning, this Pokémon flies to the top of the cliff it nests on to spread an obscuring mist.”
Base Stats:
  • HP: 70
  • Attack: 55
  • Defense: 100
  • Sp. Attack: 95
  • Sp. Defense: 75
  • Speed: 95

Feel free to share your own fakemon or provide feedback if you'd like!


Hitmonchan Defense Squad
Fyeah, I love making Fakemon concepts. Hope you don't mind me stealing your template.

Baroqto, the Pigment Pokémon (name subject to change)
No evolution
Physical Appearance: Nothing set in stone and hadn't actually been designed yet, but I'm picturing a simplified cephalopod of some sort, maybe based on a cuttlefish. Each of its tentacles shoots out a different colored ink. It is an artistic Pokemon like Smeargle, and has a gregarious but shy nature, so it doesn't look threatening. I could see it having the habit of painting the shells of other underwater Pokemon. Its shiny would be inverted colors.
Height: dunno, probably small
Weight: not too heavy either
Ability: Color Change
Pokedex Entry: “This shy Pokemon is rarely seen, but evidence of its territory can be observed by its habit of painting rocks, the walls of undersea grottos, and even the shells of other Pokemon.”
Base Stats:

  • HP: 50
  • Atk: 75
  • Def: 65
  • SpA: 75
  • SpD: 65
  • Spe: 120
  • BST: 450
Notable Moves: Sketch, Camouflage, Haze

I like making Fakemon... a lot @_@ I haven't drawn a new one for a while (kicks work) but I've gotten most of the way through a regional pokedex that features in my fanfic Gods and Demons.

The first of Gaiien’s starter pokemon, the grass-type Sylpup and its evolutions. Sylpup and the other starters are distributed by a number of pokemon professors around the region, but due to their competitive availability many trainers obtain their first pokemon as a rescue from a pokemon center, or from a trader or breeder. Borfang is a useful companion due to its ability to fly with two trainers and their gear, but it is valued by criminal gangs for the same reason and its ability to fly silently at night.

Sylpup –> (lv. 20) Timbark –> (lv. 36) Borfang

#001 Sylpup
Conifer Pokemon
A friendly pokemon that loves to play. It spends several hours a day in the sun, sleeping and drawing nourishment.
Learnset: Tackle, Growl, Absorb, Bite, Vine Whip, Odor Sleuth

#002 Timbark
Conifer Pokemon
A fast and agile pokemon, it loves to run and chase flying-type pokemon. Its wings are still growing.

#003 Borfang
Conifer Pokemon
It has a long life and it grows continuously, shedding bark and needles. It can fly at great speeds and carry heavy loads.
Base Stats: (70/105/85/65/85/120) 530
Ability: Overgrow / Hidden: Sap Sipper
Learnset: Slash, Needle Arm, Dragon Jaw, Aerial Ace, Dive Bomb, Wood Hammer, Outrage

oxhaust line.png

Gaiien’s fire-type starter has surprised many a young trainer with its transformation upon evolving. It has a ferocious appearance but it is gentle with its trainer. In the past, steel-type pokemon were rarer and had less steel content, but the advent of modern industry has made them more common. Old woodcuts suggest that Oxhaust had a different appearance prior to the industrial age.

Volcalf –> (lv. 20) Burnox –> (lv. 36) Oxhaust

Fire Calf Pokemon
A kind pokemon with a friendly demeanor, the new calves are often seen prancing and using their new fire attacks.
Learnset: Tackle, Ember, Smokescreen, Horn Attack, Smog

Fire Ox Pokemon
A bulky pokemon with a lot of power, it doesn’t always know its own strength. Its horns can punch through tough steel.
Learnset: Flame Charge, Flame Wheel, Double Kick, Revenge, Flamethrower, Firefield

Furnace Pokemon
When it gets fired up, its body gives off thick smoke. It uses its heavy armor to withstand attacks up close.
Base Stats: (90/105/120/75/75/65) 530
Ability: Blaze / Hidden: Flash Fire
Learnset: Flare Blitz, Meteor Mash, Iron Head, Hammer Arm, Haze, Megahorn, Bullet Punch, Heavy Slam, Pyrocumulus, Counter

Trivia: Oxhaust was Fire/Fighting before Nintendo did that to death 8D Changing the line to Fire/Steel was one of my first changes to the reboot. Oxhaust still learns a number of fighting-type moves.

Type: Electric
Height: 4'11"
Weight: 149 lbs

Abilities: Motor Drive / Speed Boost
Notable Moves: Thunderbolt, Air Slash, Flamethrower, Dragon Pulse, Tail Glow, Baton Pass
Pokedex Entry: It flaps its wings to generate electricity, which it stores in its tail. It channels the stored energy into its legs to run faster.

Let's start things off with my favorite fakemon design! This one came about when I was lamenting the fact that there aren't enough deinonychosaur Pokemon, so I went ahead and made my own. It's designed to be a specially-oriented speed boosting baton passer, since there weren't any of those in the metagame at the time. The stats are low because Tail Glow is broken lol.

[And, as I pretty much never shut up about, it was featured in Pokemon Uranium]


Biomechanical Abomination
My initial plan was to post the starters of the Miato region first, but I want to do some new art for them and that just didn't fly yet. So I may as well throw in this line, which is one of my favorites.


Yes, the medieval herbal guide styling was intentional here.

Alraunum is a pure Grass-type that evolves to either Mandrebus (Grass/Dark) or Belladonyx (Grass/Ghost) at level 30, depending on gender. Alraunum itself (55/50/60/50/60/45 with Immunity, Rattled or Soundproof) is a fairly common sight in the forested areas of Miato. They're curious little creatures, and alongside a few Grass and grass-adjacent moves (such as Growth) they have access to some sound moves (like Supersonic, Screech and Hyper Voice) as a nod to their nightshade-mandrake sort of nature. Not much to write home about in terms of utility - but first-stage, pure Grass-types very rarely are.

Mandrebus (110/110/85/50/65/60 with Poison Heal, Regenerator or Harvest) is a relatively high-HP quasi-tank designed to take punishment and recover its energy through a combination of its abilities and moves such as Leech Seed, Horn Leech, Ingrain and even Moonlight - while inflicting physical damage with a collection of Normal, Dark and Grass moves (as well as Earthquake and Rock Slide via TMs, in case a fire type decides to look at it funny). While it typically lumbers around, hunched over, it can rear up and stand bipedal to a rather impressive height - both as an intimidating threat display and as a prelude to a body slam or a wood hammer attack.

Belladonyx (70/60/65/100/65/120 with Drain Shock, Cursed Body or Infiltrator), on the other hand, is a wispier, faster special attacker utilizing Ghost and Grass moves with access to various "debuff" moves leaning on alluring and enchanting its foes. The Drain Shock ability of some Belladonyx is unique to Miato and has a 20% chance at inflicting paralysis on an opponent when using a move that absorbs the opponent's HP, at the cost of making that particular move count as a move that makes contact even if it doesn't normally.
