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.

You still have supernatural monsters in your version. So, why not considering ethereal (not ghost/spirits) monsters on it?

How? You said that your idea for drawing them as bats all meant "None of the Gastly family are actually ghosts, but have just been claimed to be". If you're saying that the reason they've been considered ghost types is because they have been claimed to be that /still\ wouldn't explain them having the strengths and weaknesses of a ghost type.

Your haunter is very smart and I also thought that it was something else. I thought it was a gligar. But you are still the best person on deviantart to me!!!

You are skilled yes but these discuss me. Gengar is a spiritual entity. Not a bat. Your style is undoubtedly great but these pokemon disgust me. Not because of how they look but because they are just so wrong. Giratina a great dragon from another dimension you turned into a giant bug.

What.

He's trying to depict them in a realistic way, of course fantasy won't be a thing here, this is the internet, people share and use different ideas and concepts, if you don't like that he depicted them in an interesting, biologically accurate way because of your weird, pathetic attachment to nonexistent animals, you should just stop using the internet altogether, because again, the internet is full of different ideas and concepts.

How a ghost is biologically accurate as a bat I do not know. Did you just say my attachment to nonexistent animals? Forget the internet this is deviantart it's like 50 percent non existent animals. Lol stop using the internet. The internet is where people go for nonexistent animal's. But sure sure. Gigantic bats .no fantasy here at all.the comment section is for our opinions. Can't all be positive ones.

the fact that you posted a negative comment with a strong word like disgust, means that you are open to criticism/opinions from others. if you don't like being criticized then don't do it yourself.

Sure, there is positive opinions and negative opinions, we use those for CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM 

Your opinion is useless, offers no constructive criticism and you act like everyone has to stay true to the original pokemon or else it's a crime.

Also are you pretending not to understand me?

He drew the ghost in the form of a bat to make it biologically accurate, this is why you -read-
