Diamonds are really hard (though still soft)


What do you mean "though still soft"? Diamonds aren't soft. They're the hardest naturally-occurring substance on Earth.

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?

Should've been Dragon/Psychic imo but I'm a generic Pokemon fan so my ideas are probably terrible =P

"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 5060 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

It's because of the similarities between water and space. They both are flexible, have the ability to be formed (with enough power), and can be entered.

Palkia is a universe creating pokemon, it doesn't have to make sense for it to be so spontaneous, it's Palkia.

If you need a definite theory; Space Whales.

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
