What do you think about having a Grass starter based on a beetle? Based on rhinoceros beetles mixed with cannons and tanks.
>>39365123I love it. Even though Grass/Bug is a really unfortunate type
>>39365123I like it a lot & I would like to see more, >>39365137 is right, dose it stay bug/grass or dose it change types
>>3936512310/10 would train and feed berries to
>>39365191The first 2 stages are Grass/Bug. The final stage is Grass/Steel.
>>39365348Not enough metal in the design to justify Steel.
>>39365123doesn't feel like a starter, but it's a cool line.
>>39365357Ok. Maybe Grass/Rock?
>>39365123How big is the final evo?
>>39365384Honestly they could all just be pure grass and just have access to bug moves.They might look like bugs, but they're made of wood.
>>39365123OP you have nice art, do you have a place where you post it or something?
>>39365123>heracross>mega heracross>a triceratopsgood idea, two miserable interpretations. keep the triceratops bug, make it an actual fucking bug instead of a wood dinosaur without a tail. fully scrap the first two.
>>39365123Your beetle's evolution makes me think of a child that grew up, had a bad back, and fell over only to never get back up. It's making me legit sad.
>>39365592Dude, study your beetles.
>>39365682it has four legs. give it another set of limbs. how is that hard to comprehend?
>>39365703I was just pointing out it's inspired by pic related.I can see how it can look like a triceratops, but calling it a tail-less dinosaur is reaching.
>>39365729anon, I know atlas beetles have a three pronged head. the picture in op has a shield crested head. if it isn't a triceratops inspired to be a beetle without the right number of limbs, then it's based off of fucking Tundro, since it does the same horn shooting idea.
make it grass/dragon
>>39365123The line itself isn't bad, besides the typing being misery. Doesn't come off as a starter though, and middle could use some work. Final could use more bug features.
>>39365137Balance is balance. Make him useful and he’ll fill a niche. Just give good stats. The idea that every starter has same stat spread is retarded as it doesn’t consider balancing options with typing abilities and move sets.
>>39365137I hate to say it but this anon is right. Should lose the hope of it being a starter and just see it as a cool 3 stage mon. Either full bug or I guess bug stone?
>>3936512310/10 would raise
>>39365441This is the best answer. We need to go back to gen 2 which is the only one I can remember that kept each starter at only their base typing. I like single type mons. Fucking fight me
>>39365123As long as it's not humanoid, it's fine by me.
The design is excellent, and I would run it anyway, but for anyone else, grass/bug is too painful. It would get laughed out of all starter discussions. You'd have to give it some incredible ability, which would break that Blaze/Overgrow/Water one ability formula, or make the HA readily available. Something that makes it immune to Flying type attacks, like "Anti-Aircraft Horns".
>>39365935I disagree i like the middle as a cannon
>>39365348>Trading a x4 weakness to fire for a x4 weakness to fireYikes
>>39365123Looks great OP
>>39366034>*Steel Armor*>When attacked this pokémon is also a steel typex8 from firex2 from flyingx1 from ghost, dark and fighting resistant to everything else
you could also just have the other two starters have rock or ground secondary types, which would make all three 4x weak to their opposing type.
