What do you think about having a Grass starter based on a beetle?

Based on rhinoceros beetles mixed with cannons and tanks.

I love it. Even though Grass/Bug is a really unfortunate type
>>
>>39365123
I like it a lot & I would like to see more, >>39365137 is right, dose it stay bug/grass or dose it change types
>>
>>39365123
10/10 would train and feed berries to
>>
>>39365191
The first 2 stages are Grass/Bug. The final stage is Grass/Steel.
>>
>>39365348
Not enough metal in the design to justify Steel.
>>
>>39365123
doesn't feel like a starter, but it's a cool line.
>>
>>39365357
Ok. Maybe Grass/Rock?
>>
>>39365123
How big is the final evo?
>>
>>39365384
Honestly 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.
>>
>>39365123
OP you have nice art, do you have a place where you post it or something?

>mega heracross
>a triceratops
good 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.
>>
>>39365123
Your 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.
>>
>>39365592
Dude, study your beetles.
>>
>>39365682
it has four legs. give it another set of limbs. how is that hard to comprehend?
>>
>>39365703
I 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.

anon, 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

The 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.

>>39365137
Balance 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.
>>
>>39365137
I 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?
>>
>>39365123
10/10 would raise
>>
>>39365441
This 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
>>
>>39365123
As 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".

>>39365935
I disagree i like the middle as a cannon

Yikes

>>39365123
Looks great OP
>>
>>39366034
>*Steel Armor*
>When attacked this pokémon is also a steel type

x8 from fire
x2 from flying
x1 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.
