...This kinda makes me like them more

According to interviews with Ken Sugimori in Nintendo Dream, during development, Sawk and Throh both had horns making them look more like Oni. However, they were replaced with eyebrows so as not to clash with Tornadus and Thundurus, who both were originally designed to be red and blue, like Throh and Sawk.

It's interesting to think about them as Oni rather than just generic tall/skinny and short/fat martial artists.

What do you all think?

I would have preferred them as Onis, and just scrap the hideous Kami Trio

Someone did a fanart based on the original concept.

Sawk and Throh would indeed be much cooler if they looked like this.

I do kind of want an Oni Pokemon, but I'm not sure how I'd feel about Throh and Sawk being them...

Oh well, it leaves the concept open for future Pokemon. Until that day, just gonna have to make do with this:

This. That Trio and Sawk and Throh are my least favorite Pokemon. However, Tornadus and Landorous's Therian formes are pretty great.
