Black Tortoise Season Legendary Poll
Time to vote for our next legendary Pokemon! We had a lot of great entries! Everyone only has ONE VOTE!
24. Submission by derteufelkartoffeltobyhallek
Which is your favorite!?
Black Tortoise. Probably Ice/Dark typing? the snake does most of the attacking. it’s unclear whether it’s technically a separate organism (a la shellder with slowbro) or just a manifestation of the tortoise’s powers.
Here is my try at the black tortoise design! Like all my past entries im open to someone else taking a crack at my design and redrawing/tweaking it if they like.
No. We only accept original artwork for design submissions.
Here’s my entry for the black tortoise legendary! I based the on turtles, of course, knights, and kaijus. The swordsman part came to be because the Black Turtle is referred to as the “Black Warrior” in East Asia. :D The snake is referenced in the sword ;)
This pokemon is loved by surfers as wherever this Pokemon swims, it creates big nice waves.
Shading and filling would take quite a lot longer, so I figured I’d submit the outline for the time being.
Coloration would ranged from black to dark purple to blue to white, simulating the idea of black ice. For the snake portion it make sense ascetically to have it wrap around the legs and underneath.
The Arrow pointing north is on the large ice crystal on the shell.
As this is a tortoise, not a turtle, the large legs and upward body mass seemed acceptable.
Here’s my submission for the tropius evo contest. The name, abilities, etc., are up to the community, but I’ve included a few pieces of flavor text for the dex entries:
"When it senses danger approaching its island home, it whips up strong winds to blow away the threat - be it a storm, a ship, or another pokemon. Its diligent attitude has earned it the nickname ‘Guardian of Paradise.’"
"It protects its island home by creating cyclones with its leafy wings. Many island cultures revere this pokemon as a guardian spirit, and depictions of it interacting with humans can be found in ancient ruins."
A goofy banana hat, and now with banana flowers! >u>
The new leaves/wings are young again(replenish!) so their colors are lighter.
