We need some elves or gnomes too.

Ghouls, also Arabic, would be pretty awesome Pkmn too


Cacturne is functionally a cross between a scarecrow, a cactus and an arabic ghoul. They live in deserts, hunt at night and feed on lost wanderers, slowly hunting them down until they become weary.

A bunyip Pokemon would be pretty cool.

I would say we need something based on Orochi, but I think Hydriegon fills that role at least design wise. But an 8-headed serpent Pokemon would be nice.

Why does Ganon have no friends?
It's because he's such a boar.

I love the Draugr myths so hard.

But what I want is an Electric/Fighting Thor based Pokemon.

Might be a bit grusome for Pokemon, but I think it'd be cool to see a pokemon based on the banshee.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banshee

As an aside, I see the previous links were mobile versions. Should I make the link a mobile version, or will regular Wikipedia work just fine? I only ask because I can't stand the look of mobile versions of sites (it's not all that hard for me to remove the extra m from a link, so I'm not really complaining), but I do understand that there are people that post stuff from their phones, so a mobile link would probably be more convenient.

That's Misdreavus. It's 'signature move' was Perish Song.

Really? Huh, I should probably be more up on my Pokemon mythos, but that's pretty cool. Misdreavus always seems to slip my mind though.

i also think sableye fits the usual image of ghouls (living in the dark, having a creepy body shape, and it feeds on gems which mostly consist of dead animals/plants soo.....its a bit of a stretch but i think it works for me)

We need a phoenix. I don't think Moltres is an actual phoenix.

It would be a cliche fire/flying
Or make it pure fire.

Its ability would be Harvest. Or something relating to rebirth from ashes.

Maybe also flash fire, flame body.

Or a unique ability in which if this Pokemon is hit by water or fire moves, it regains health.
