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).

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

ps the final stage evolution needs a name as cute as it looks
i.e the best name ever
