Slymander by Kyle-Dove Slymander by Kyle-Dove
Ruflame's final stage - Slymander

Fire/Dark

It's blood is like a liquid fire, causing it to produce flames when in contact with the oxygen in the air. Because of this, it constantly has to keep pumping fire to the pads on it's body to avoid overheating.

It can completely regrow any limbs it loses, though it never looks the same as the original.

It's different from the others as it's quite fast and has a few healing moves!

This is so cool! The best fire starter of yours, I think.

Gosh I had no idea what an Olm was so I looked it up. I'm surprised I'd never heard of it before! It's creepy though...

It's great! I love the red and grey pattern on its arms and tail!
The over all design is very well put together :)

Thanks! I love stripes I've been wanting to put them on a pokemon for ages so I was happy when I designed this one.

I'm not sure how liquid fire would work, but it sounds cool. :D I love that while it can regrow limbs, they aren't the same as before. Awesome job! :nod:

Yeah I kinda just made up the liquid fire thing. I guess it's like regular blood it's just very flammable. I got the idea about the limbs from a leopard gecko I had as a pet. Their tails can fall off but when they regrow they look disgusting!

I used that idea of the regrowing limbs on its arms and legs, the stripes is where it's regrown them.

Under perfect conditions the tail may grow back in an almost perfect state. The tails of salamanders are more common to grow (almost) perfectly back than those of reptiles though.

So kind of like gasoline. :XD: And I knew some lizards regrow their tails, but I didn't know they come back malformed. :o

I really love the idea kyle, because I love newt/lizards.
But something disturbes me maybe a bit of darker color on the evo or a make it look more like a newt.

Examples:

I hope i helped you. But don't think I don´t like them cause I love newts!! =D

Ah thank you, I appreciate that. I think I'll keep the colours as they are though, pokemon doesn't have to true to life (blue cats, etc), so I'm not too fussed about it not being dark enough.

I see what you mean though, but there are lots of different salamanders and they're not all dark.

Charizard ain't got shit on this guy. It can only hope to look as good as this badass.

The "lip" there bothers me a bit, though. Just seems out of place. Other than that this guy is made of pure awesomesauce.

Wow that's a pretty big compliment haha.

Ooh I never thought of it as a lip, it's just like a marking or something at the end of its muzzle. If people start thinking its a lip I might remove it though but I felt it was kinda necessary there.

I honestly think Charizard is overrated. This guy proves that you don't need wings to become awesome.

Yeah, maybe I'm thinking of that because I have no idea how it'd look without the marking. I just called it a lip because I didn't feel like typing "marking on the end of its nose". Yay laziness.

When Scorchet's evo is out I'll have to decide between it and this fella. The horror of decision making is coming! Looking forward to the Grass and water starter as well!

Yeah I think Charizard is quite overrated, but I can understand how it's mostly nostalgia that makes people love it. I doubt all the new fans of pokemon are such big Charizard lovers.

Haha well Scorchet's evo will be revealed tomorrow. I just hope I didn't make it "too epic" or something.

Of course not I'm not disappointed! Still, the info telling us about Slymander being able to regrow his limbs is kind of... weird. I wonder how it works.

What a great design! I love how Ruflame line and Charmander line is based on lizard, and yet they look completely different!

Thank you! That's exactly the kind of comment I was hoping to get. I wanted to create like a refresh of the series that are kinda similar but the design's are completely different. I also want to prove you can still create original designs that are simplistic.

No problem! You have certainly prove that you can use the same animal/thing from existing pokemon, and still make the original design!
