Commission to the wonderful :iconranchmaker:

Boy this one was tricky. Looking at Gastly, I cracked it, his eyes could be bat ears; then the rest just fell into place design wise. None of the Gastly family are actually ghosts, but have just been claimed to be. Gastly and Haunter on live in caves and empty towers, appearing only at night. Their forms are very hard to make out as they have deceptive camouflage; Gastlies appear to be little more than a head at first glace, though in actuality are a very large poisonous bat. Each member of this family possesses a helium bladder, giving them the ability to float and taking on a ghostly appearance. Gengars do not occur in the wild, they are the result of a trainer taking their haunter to a new region, this results is a radical shift physique. Though Gengars do possess the ability to levitate, they are much heavier than their kin and can only levitate to avoid attacks. Each of them can produce a poisonous cloud by ruffling their fur, releasing dried toxic saliva into the air; though Gastlies seem to do this most commonly. They are hyper carnivores, preying on anything they can find, most commonly their relatives, Zubats. Rattata doesn't like picture day.

Also, happy almost Halloween.

Don't remember if I commented on this earlier, but going through these again this one is just fantastic, man :D
Loove the Gastly design, and Gengar's arms are just awesome!
Thanks, man.  This has definitely been my most divisive piece, but I still really like the idea.  I would say at least half the comments are just telling me that gengar is not a bat ;p

Like your Bat Gengar concept.

What do you think of fans who believe Gengar is merely a dark version of Clefable?

Do any of your realistic Pokemon speak? I mean do they use typical Pokespeak, meaning saying their names over and over, or being realistic, they just growl, squeal and roar like real animals? In which case could realistic Meowth from Team Rocket even speak human language at all?
Only Chatot real speak and how said Arv, can only talk telephaticaly if have a great psychic power (Mewtwo, Lugia, Jirachi, maybe Arceus and maybe Hoopa (we don't have information to say if he have telephaty or not) I think only this)

 I figured that Parrot Pokemon like Chatot could speak, but what about Meowth from Team Rocket, teaching himself to speak human. I would like to think that even realistic Meowth could learn to speak human.
No, realisticaly he cannot speak, I think Meowth have the same cat physionomy, so he cannot speak

Maybe he could still, as a realistic cat, have most of his personality from the Anime. He may not be able to talk, but he could maybe express himself through his face and actions.
