Silkmoths by Kyle-Dove Silkmoths by Kyle-Dove
Based on Bombyx Mori (domesticated silkmoths - which are super cute).
Designs were done by ~farreer and ~nachtbeirmann with some changes by me.

Silkch
Bug Type
Silkworm Pokemon

"Silkch are constantly falling over and bumping themselves, so they wrap themselves in silk bandages."

Cachoe
Bug Type
Silk Body Pokemon

"Cachoe's head and tail mimic eyes, but are only for display. The real body has turned liquid inside and awaits evolution."

???
Bug / Fairy Type
Silk Moth Pokemon

"??? have been cultivated in Asia for centuries for their high quality silk. Some have been bred so that they cannot fly."

pls no comments saying "ew cachoe looks like..." I don't want to hear it. Bugs can be pretty weird and I think it's a really clever design. It's also based on the ugly duckling theme.

Silkch's design also takes inspiration from the cruel world of silk production, where 2000-3000 silkworms have to be slaughtered to make one single pound of silk (they are boiled alive in their coccoons so that they dont ruin the silk when they come out).

These are really nice designs, and well sprited too (as with all yours designs lol) :) 
Are you taking suggestions for the name of the last one? I think the name 'Entomajesty' is fitting... Derived from 'entomology' and 'majesty', I think it appeals both to what the Pokemon is (a rather majestic looking insect) and also to the ugly duckling theme you mentioned.

Oh, I love the final one a lot!  It's kinda sad that the domesticated silk moth can't fly, but eh, not much to be done about that.
Just curious, can Cachoe walk?  It seems to have feet, though I could be wrong.

The final evolution COULD  be called silcoth or something. Just a suggestion.

that world is just too cruel
but real life is like that, I guess

Serisoth for the last bug in the line?
It's got a nice ring to it; and isn't too brash for a fairy type pokemon.

Serikos is Greek for silk.

Haha I see your point :3

Silamori, perhaps?
Sila is just silk without the 'k', and mori comes from the Silkworm Classification - Bombyx Mori

"Silkoth" for the third evo?

Could work...I'll see if anyone suggests anything better. Thanks for the suggestion!

theartbook35 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Yeah... it's a bit too obvious... only one I could think of at the time.

Its scientific name is "Bombyx mori", which means "silk worm of the mulberry tree". I feel like the name should have that in it but I am drawing a blank... XD

Que monos son los 3! Me encanta Cachoe, tiene un nombre divertido que va a juego con su diseño.

Idea para el nombre de la evo final: Sedarna (seda + arna ("moth" en Español))

Sedarna me gusta! En serio las llaman arnas? Yo siempre las he llamado pollilas jajaja

Ahí me he colado, "arna" es "polilla" en catalán XD; (lo que tiene hablar dos lenguas desde peque, se te lían las palabras XD; )

"Polilla" no "pollila"... lo segundo suena bastante parecido a la tercera pierna de los hombres XD;
Yo también prefiero "arna", de ahí que no procesara que no era en castellano xD;
