Solutai 3 by BoogersXD Solutai 3 by BoogersXD
I'm entering this for :iconblueghosty:'s pokemon contest. Hope it does well...
I was going to ps it in sugimori style but I ran out of time. ><


Entry #3

Solutai - Dark type (/Light type?)
Balance Pokemon

1st evolution -> Evolves from Absol
Trade Absol holding Dawn Stone

Solutai has an extremely keen sense of balance in the world and can predict even the smallest mishap. Even though it tries to warn humans of a disaster, it is still mistaken as a terrible omen.

Name origin
"solut" from absolute and "tai" from taijitou. Literal meaning, "absolute balance".

<3 <3 <3 now that that is said I really love the thought of this being a Dark/Psychic type. I think it would be crazy if this pokemon even had two pre-evolves. One being Absol the dark type and the other being something new as a psychic type. Then they both evolve using contrasting ways to arrive at the same point.

As for this fakemon I feel the description and way it evolves need a bit more work. As a helping concept.
Name - Solutai
Species - Balance Pokemon
Type - Dark / (Psychic)
Pokedex Entree - Legends say this pokemon is connected to the mind of the world. - Peace is said to follow wherever this pokemon appears. - This pokemon will always be where it is needed most when it matters. -

I really like your ideas on this.. I think it would be really neat to have a "two become one" concept for the evolution. The pokedex entrees you write are also much better. I need to work on creativity with those.. ^^'

What do you think about "adding" a new type, Light? I was also thinking of Cloud and Rust types..

Egh when it comes to pokemon I think they imply that the type of "light" is In every pokemon. That is why all pokemon are able to be good and tend to be more inclined to being nice. I understand the whole thought of dark vs light type. Normal is also sometimes veiwed as a "light" type. I think they could care less to add that in though. Otherwise they probably would have already done it. Just like making "Time" & "Space" a type. They like to keep the types a bit broad. Like Altaria is a cloud like wing pokemon with flying and dragon type. Cloud can be water and air (air normally covered by flying type) and rust (metal deteriorating). Though I think rust might be a good theme for a steel type move.

Mmm, I never really thought of dark and light types like that... I just considered them literally "dark" and "light" like the shadows and sun. So I can see how adding light type in the sense of "goodness" is a little redundant..
I was actually getting a little fed up with how random all the types were. I like patterns and meaning myself... Maybe I could get your feedback on a different typeset I've been cooking up..?
GAS types:
vapor/cloud, air/wind, sound
LIQUID types:
acid/poison, water, oil/grease
SOLID types:
ice, earth/rock, metal
PLASMA types:
fire, electricity, light
Then each "creature" could also be a 7 different categories:
plant, insect, fish, reptile, bird, mammal, and mythical.
Just a rough idea I like to play around with...

When it comes to gas it implies a sense of vapor + air or a mixture of a two. So yeah a decent type would be gas as it covers air, gas, vapor, wind, and those that use it to their advantage such as flyers.
Sound is a whole another beast because it does not have to involve air such as sound passing through mediums such as ground and water. I would not classify air specifically with sound together as it is multi-medium. That is why "sound" it pokemon is more of a normal type thing as it specifically does not apply to one element.

Liquid is decent as well cause it covers a wide range of forms. When you are stating the states of matter for this you have to consider "can this be in the other states more regularly". Poison can be a vapor so rather than having it be a primary type it would be a branch type that can connect to gas and liquid.

Solid types are correct but ice is a bit uneasy being that it can be come water quite quickly. Metals are the dominates of the periodic table so there is plenty of room.

Plasma is something else. It is somewhere between but is relating to energy so yeah you could stretch it to cover those but egh. I think "Energy" would be more appropriate of a type as plasma consists of energy and so does light, fire, electricity, and sound as well. Sounds source is vibration which is an access of energy passing through mediums (solid, liquid, gas) to what can be perceived by the ears.

As for the creature categories bird cat can be "Avians", fish cat. can be "Aquatic" since some water creatures are not fish but something else, Insects could be athropods as it would also cover arachnids and other. Not that "mythical" does not cover it but "elemental" could be considered a separate cat. as it pertains to made specifically of raw elements where mythical can pertain to exalted creature.

Mmm, this is a good objective viewpoint, thank you! Like I said, I'm still playing around with it as I hear other's opinions, and I'm definitely going to take your input into consideration for future revisions.

I wonder, have you also thought of your own type set before? You seem pretty knowledgeable about it.

i agree with mr. m down there. Most types have already been made, well, all the significant types. combinations, like mr. m mentioned that fire and water combined was technically steaam or fog. Good point. those two things arent very siginficant and arent really thought of much. you want he new type set to include significant things. and you dont necessarily have to do elements like water or air. You can do different stuff, like you mentioned, different knids of animals, like birds, mammals, fish, stuff like that. I do like all your ideas for this. What do you guys still need help with? I might be able to assist you with that. Your ideas are very good ideas, guys. we could possibly make a whole new game based off these ideas. I have quite a few fakemon that we could use if you guy are interested in that. We might be able to round up a few more peepz to help. AWESOME!

Yeah, my goal isn't to create a completely new typeset, just organize a more symbolic and harmonizing one. But it's true, the real fun comes from the huge variety of ways they can be combined.
It would be cool to pull of our own game. I wouldn't be able to help out much because of school and work, but I'll do my best to pitch in if you (and anybody else who joins) are willing to set it up.

I have not made my own type because I feel all the types have already been made. I spend my time not thinking of new types so much as how they can be used or combined in interesting ways. For the most part ideas are recycled. So since they are, have them recycled into interesting ways. There is more freedom and options their that have not been used. Type is your base but the meat of it is in how that is utilized. Like a "water / fire" type that hides itself using the steam/fog it generates internally by vaporizing water with the fire in it's stomach.
I sort of hobby "Concept hunting" expanding my own imagination of possibilities by seeing what other people have come up with then assessing strengths and weaknesses. If I think a concept has merit I try to help them out where I can. For fakemon creators I actually favorite a lot of interesting ideas into my "Favorites" - "pokemon misc" folder [link] . I have a habit of sharing my ideas about their concept with them to possibly enrich their own. Soon I will be putting out my own fakemon concepts to see what people think about them.

I see. Yeah, it's true, there's never really "new types", just rethought ones. Even then, I think the best creative combinations comes from a strong and well though out base of types. For me, Pokemon came a little short. But nonetheless, it does set a great basework for some really neat pokemon types (your water/fire, ground/flying, grass/fire, etc).
That's nice of you to give constructive critique to people! Objectiveness I think brings out the best of an art piece many times.
I'll watch out for your fakemon!
