They actually based the final design on the sea lion after visiting an aquarium, but there's still a resemblance to the giant otter. --- "Murder of the living is tragic, but murder of the idea is unforgivable." - Janus, speaker of the synod
Politoed actually makes sense; it's Poliwrath that's weird. I mean, think about it: Poliwag is a tadpole, but Poliwrath ain't no frog or toad I've seen. It's an adult tadpole. --- Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.
Rhydon > Rhyperior. Totally ditched the grey colouration (which I much preferred) and I don't like how flat 'perior's head is after they got rid of 'don's crest.
Surprised you think Mismagius doesn't fit, I think that one fits perfectly.
There's a whole load that don't make much sense but that weren't added later, so I won't mention those.

Mismagius isn't even the same color as Misdreavus. And it randomly looks like a witch. That's not to say I don't like Mismagius, I just like it less than Misdreavus.
I always though Misdreavus shares more characteristics with Shuppet than it does with Misdreavus, so if they had made its evo something like a giant shuppet, I think it would have fit better. --- Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

They actually based the final design on the sea lion after visiting an aquarium, but there's still a resemblance to the giant otter.
It's because they had a very difficult time designing Oshawott's final evo, that's why they visit the aquarium to get some ideas and eventually, settled on Samurott being a sea lion/giant otter. --- Official GilgaPrishe's Spicy Hot Taco Buddy of Dissidia 012 Duodecim Final Fantasy Board WhiteFC: 2881 6954 3015, White2FC: 3740 8553 3571
