Magic flying fish by G-FauxPokemon Magic flying fish by G-FauxPokemon
:thumb149948357:
Pronounced: shahrk-kahyt
An odd fish Pokemon that has adapted to live in the clouds. It uses its bright yellow tail to send messages to fellow SHARKITE.

For ~FawkesTheSkarmory's Contest. The theme is to make a pure flying type, He is what I would call "a contruction fakemon" as I doodle randomly until I came up with something. So we have a flying fish mix with kite tail it uses for communication. Kinda like a Japanese koi windsock.

I really like it, its original even with mantine existing. It actually can learn fly :iconlegaspplz:!


EDIT: Now officially part of the Alber region. Decided just to update the old image since the only thing that's new here is the shading and page layout.

So enjoy!

why the hell would a fish that never goes in water be a water type? o.o

that's a lame reason imo. That's like saying every bird Pokemon regardless if it flies should be a flying type and every insect should be a bug type and every dragon looking pokemon should be a dragon type. Seriously can't you just be happy with my concepts? really it it THAT HARD to accept a fish that doesn't have any water attack and doesn't live in water isn't a water type?

U gotta accept minor criticism man, there's no such thing as prefections, now there IS such a thing as constructice criticism, kay ?
And even if it dun live in the water, it is a DESCENDENT of ancient fish Pokemon (or animals, if U get what I mean) which used 2 live in the water ...
Like it's related 2 water SOMEHOW though not directly and thus I consider it should be partly water type, especially if it only has one type so far.
Ans as a matter of fact pretty much every single bird pokemon is Flying type regardless if i flies or not (hello Dodrio !), same goes for Bugs & Dragons (like the only reason why Charizard isn't Dragon type is because he already has 2 types but he learns Dragon moves & that Dragon Elite 4 guy in Sapphire & Ruby uses him so he's unofficially a Dragon-type really) sooo yeah ... in your face !
U dun wanna make him Water-type, w/e man it's a presonal choice, I'd just like U 2 accept that it's logical I suggested mayB U should.
Now chill the hell down & open Ur damn eyes, we're trying to HELP you here, U should consider yourself lucky people take time tu suggest stuff to you, it could actually help you better yourself, only if U let it.

No you are NOT trying to help me you're trying to modify my design to fit your preference. Making it a water type would not help the design whatsoever especially considering this Pokemon is based after a Japanese type of kite and not an actual fish (whereas its evo is based on both a shark and an kite). You would probably know that had you read into it but you'd too lazy to do that I guess.

People like you are what ruins fakemon making for others, you don't even know how to criticize work. You criticism lack depth, understanding and above all else contructiveness. Its basically "baww, the type is wrong" the type FITS the Pokemon, you're just a whiny child that wants his way because they think my art belongs to them.

I only draw fakemon for myself, not to satisfy you and your preferences. If you can't find something wrong with the actual art itself (ie: the picture.) then stfu because no one wants to have to go back and retype a Pokemon just because one very selfish ignorant fan feels it would be better as a different type.

In short I'm tired of you immaturity when responding to my work. You rarely put any effort into your response nor do you respect my own ability to give my Pokemon stats. This is made far worse given you don't read my artist comments (and yes, I can tell you don't) so you have no fucking idea what you're talking about most of the time. So yeah. Enjoy being the first person I've ever blocked.

This would go good with the new gen that actually has a pure flying and lots of fish that are not water types.

Indeed. I don't know about other people but I like the fact they introduce fish that aren't water types. Really in the vast oceans of the Pokemon world you'd think some fish would have adapted to use other things that water elements.

Yeah, That's what Cheep-cheep from Mario is based on, but they just jump, Cheep-cheep and the real thing don't actually fly...

And you're right, even with Mantine this is still original!

It's possible one of the cutest/coolest things I've ever seen.
It kindof reminds be of your sock monkey pokemon though.
But I still love it though and through.
