Why isn't this a Galarian Cofagrigus?
>>
>>46788045
The same reason why it isn't rock type despite clearly being a rock.
>>
>>46788045
so you could use both in the same team, fag.
>>
>>46788045
Half transition of regional variants into different species with different names
>>
>>46788047
Ground/Ghost is ok-
>>
>>46788045
Then you'd be complaining that it doesn't look anything like Cofagrigus.
>>
>>46788045
Its pretty retarded that this was where they decided it needed a name change but Snowslash staying sandslash was fine
>>
>>46788217
Snowslash?
Blizzlash?
Icelash?
>>
>>46788235
Snowslash is nice
>>
>>46788217
Not really, A-Sandslash is a blue K-Sandslash. Runerigus is an entirely different base to Cofagrigus, can't even claim it's a burial shroud or cairn, why the fuck would it keep its name exactly the same?
>>
>>46788329
Cofagrigus is a ghost inhabiting a sarcophagus

Runerigus is a ghost inhabiting a runestone.

They are the same concept, just with a different item invovled, which leads me to think it should have just been Regional Cofagrigus. Only reason why they changed it is probably because of the name.
>>
>>46788045
Everyone in this thread is a retard.
They clearly realized they fucked up with the name coFAGrigus which even gets blocked by the nickname filter, so they gave the new evolution a new name.
>>
>>46788412
Why would gamefreak give that much of a shit about the western localization?
>>
Perrserker and Runerigus both differ enough from Persian and Cofagrigus.
>>
>>46788235
>>46788300
snowslash is fine but snowshrew into blizzslash would've been cool (ba dum tish but no really)
>>
>>46788640
They give a shit when it impacts player experience (luminose save glitch) and after he's said it, he's right. Being blocked from trading due to the actual english name and a severe word filter's bullshit and likely why they gave it a new form/name.
>>
>>46788389
imagine the pokedex referring to it as a rigus ghost that will never leave what it is bound to.
>>
>>46788724
have they fixed cofagrigus yet? its a cool mon...
>>
>>46788736
I think they have an exception for that, but I also think they weren't fucked going through all that rigmarole for the Galarian variant.
>>
>>46788640
I mean the western player base is fucking massive. Of course GF cares about them, is that even a question? When something impacts such a massive market, GF will do a fix.
>>
>>46788743
ye its a legit good call
>>
>>46788045
why aren't the galarian birds their own fucking pkmn
>>
>>46788813
We don't know.
>>
>>46788047
>>46788185
meanwhile sudowoodo is not grass type
>>
>>46788813
kinda crazy when you consider their names are still freezer, thunder, and fire
>>
Because his "body" changed. Cofagrirus has 4 arms and no tail, while this has only 2 arms and a tail.

Is just like slowpoke having different evolution based on the location bit have their shelders. The difference is that the previous evolution also change form.
>>
>>46788047
Stay mad forever please
>>
>>46788217
Her new Ice-type slashes the sand super-effectively, so her name still makes sense.
>>
>>46788045
because it isn't a fucking coffin
>>
>>46789769
it's also not clay, yet retardedly it's Ground-type instead of Rock
>>
It’s implied an external cursed runestone completely absorbs g-yamask and it ‘evolves’ into Runerigus. While curses are related to sarcophagus, no def entry implies Cofagrigus was the result of a curse/is tied to a curse
>>
>>46789796
ah yes a slab of the earth unearthed with runes all over it, definitely nor ground type
>>
>>46789862

>>46788185
this
>>
Should have been named runigrigus to carry on the legacy
>>
>>46788412
They didn't fuck up the name.
They fucked up by HAVING a filter.
>>
>>46789337
based
>>
>>46789337
His entire point is that he only poses as a tree. Of course he's not grass type.
>>
>>46788813
>>46789281
>>46789360
According to tue website, it's because people saw tuem from a distance and saw things freeze/burn and heard thunder. Nobody got close enough to realize that they weren't the Kanto birds until long after the names became commonly used.
>>
>>46788045
because it's not the same physiology as Cofagrigus at all
>>
>>46789876
>t. Bulbapedo
>>
>>46791384
are they legit different monsters and not just some mutation/subspecies?
>>
>>46791363
>His
>>
>>46788723
Not at all
>>
>>46788723
blizzslash sounds like a sonic oc
>>
In Japan their names are a lot closer:
Cofagrigus = Deathkarn (coffin of death)
Runerigus = Deathbarn (slab of death)
>>
>>46791384
>>46791584
I never bought the "they're actually entirely different pokemon" theory since they still share a lot of moves and have nearly identical stats (plus their shinies being based on the originals)

I always figured they changed from eating the fruit of the dyna tree which the game makes a big point of them annually travelling to the tree to do, possibly hinting at some eventual gimmick where you can just switch pokemon to and from their regional forms at will
>>
>>46791684
Fair enough, nevermind. I kinda like Snowshrew. Slushshrew? Whatever, they're fine.

>>46791722
I'm not sure if I'd want that unless it was an availability thing like with those new EV candies, but even then, it's kinda weird. But I like your interpretation about how they mutated cause of fruit.
>>
>>46788045
You'd probably complain that the name doesn't make sense because it's not a Sarcophagus.
>>
>>46791886
Persian is a Siamese
Beedril is a wasp
Charmeleon is not a chameleon
etc.
>>
>>46789697
>projecting
>>
>>46788047
clay isn't rock you absolute mong
>>
>>46791944
You've been reposting the same brainless complaint for the past year and a half, so yes I'm going to take a gander and say "you mad as fuck, bro".
>>
>>46792054
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runestone
>>
>>46792156
But the Runestone in this case is made out of clay
>>
>>46792514
lies
>>
>>46792634
Arrest yourself
>>
>>46791908
Beedrill's a hornet though.
