From what I just saw from images, Kelpies LOOK like underwater sea beasts, having a fish-like tail. My problem with Keldeo is that it looks like a generic pony
See the other link.
Floatzel is a weasel
In a world where weasels are otters.
I didn't know how else to describe Palkia.
Might I suggest an online dictionary or thesaurus?
"In folklore, Water Horses (spelled as "Waterhorse" in folklore) are described as being very similar to a long-necked seal. They are described as having a small head attached to a long giraffe-like neck with an equine mane (occasionally covered in hair) and having two sets of flippers, the rear pair at the very end of the body, giving the impression of a seal-like tail. Its body length ranges from 50–60 feet and the neck is 70 feet long"
Keldeo has none of those features. It's a generic horse onto which GF slapped it's favorite typing.
Loot at Floatzel's name. It's pretty clearly based on a weasel. Oshawott's family is based on otters.
Palkia is a dragon that looks mechanical. Robotic dragon is a decent description.
Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US
The three dragon legends from Gen 4 also allegedly represent states of matter, with Dialga's steel representing solid, Palkia's water representing liquid, and Giratina's ghost representing gas. I have no idea if that is official or just another fan theory, but just putting it out there.
I quite like this theory
