-Dragonite- by arvalis -Dragonite- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


My computer is sorta running again. I've had the idea to do an amphibian Dragonite for weeks without the the means to execute it. Upon research I've discovered that Dratini looks suspiciously like a salamander tadpole, everything just fits into place. Pretty much the only time in nature a vaguely serpentine creature transforms into a reptilian looking critter.

The way I was looking at it is that Dragonites are very rare in the wild as it reaches maturity at around 55 years old. They can be trained into maturity much faster than they grow in nature. Dragonites are exceptional swimmer and are very strong ambush predators, using their powerful legs or tail to propel themselves at prey. They often are mistaken for taking flight when really they just jump great heights.

This looks really good, just one question: if Dragonite is a Dragon type Pokemon, shouldn't he look more dragon-like than Salamander-like? Its a very good depection of a realistic Dragonite butstill, i dont see him as a Salamander-like thing. He's more dragonish. But very good, nonetheless.

This is why Dragonair should have a second choice of evolution.

Dragonite's drastic change in appearance actually makes sense when presented this way. @_@ Mind blown.

Google the word "axlotl"
Reply
:iconsackywack2141:
I know what that is but it's more like a frog because axolotls have smooth faces and a frog can fit with this. But an axolotl does make more sense, so maybe i'm wrong. So it's part axolotl then. :D
