Moving from some of the older ones, It's time for a pretty major overhaul on some "newer" designs! This time, its my Coral Reef Turtle pokemon (seen here trxpics.deviantart.com/art/Aqu…
-Ability:Shell Armor/Natural Cure(HA Regenerator)
-Black Shell pokemon
-"They are able to spend days without air, keeping themselves hidden in large coral reefs. Their black shells are incredibly strong even from birth, and as they age they become more stylized making Corapas grooming a very popular hobby amongst high-class Water-type trainers. They travel in large groups, riding undersea currents during winter in search of Frozen Kelp in Northen Dracora. Corapas close to evolution stay in the northern waters, meditating silently until they evolve."
When taken to the Northern Palace in Dracora after being learning the move "Mystical Water"**, Corapas will evolve into:
-Ability:Mystic Shell*/Natural Cure(HA Regenerator)
-"Hulking in stature and mellow by nature, these gentle giants make their homes in in the black coral reefs of Northern Dracora, giving home to many smaller pokemon and fauna on their shell. Calmly watching over the batches of Corapas who come every year, Tertobas provide them with protection against the vicious predators of the northern waters. Known as "The Black Warrior Sages", Tertobas are known for their wisdom, and many trainers come to them seeking advice, although very few actually find them."
*Mystic Shell:"Moves used against this pokemon which don't make contact do less damage."(33%)
-"The user shoots a torrent of water filled with a mystical force. Restores the user's HP by Half the damage dealt."
Okay, so this remake was done as a complete inspiration from the Black Turtle, known as Xuanwu in Chinese and Genbu in Japanese, and is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese Constelations. He is an accomulation of a Turtle, Snake (and sometimes a Dragon) with Black coloration, and is a symbol of Water and the North.
Seeing as how my previous design was a little meh, and pretty bland all things considered, this incarnation would get a much better base for its' design, combining elements of Leatherback Turtles, Snakes, Eastern Dragons and Black Coral to make the design stand out a little.Hope you like them!Pokemon © Pokémon Company/Nintendo
