Commission for Karyousu

Honchkrows are a medium sized bird that largely feeds on carrion and bug Pokemon. Males display a very large "beard" and can puff it up while pulling their head into their chest to intimidate other males and gain favor of females. During mating season, the males with bash their crests against one on another. They will continue to do this until one of their crests cracks, deciding the victor. Honchkrows have taken their namesake after the tendency of them to lead flocks of Murkrow, these groupings are called gangs. Murkrow will start to grow into a Honchkrow when given access to a dusk stone. A Murkrow will rub their bill on the stone causing their crest to develop as a response. Venipedes are an especially delectable treat to Honchkrows because they are a stupid pink millipede beetle. Also, what's the deal with Wurmple?

Wouldn't it be called a murder, not a gang?

Venipedes are not the sharpest tools in the shed, but Scolipedes are quite deadly on the other hand. And the deal Wurmple is that he is about to drive one of those poison spikes right into one of Murkrow's eyes.

I kinda get the kind of Pokemon a Honchkrow is. I have a feeling it was based off a of a mob/gang boss.

I can actually see Mismagius as the female counterpart of Honchkrow. It makes total sense. Mismagius and Honchkrow are right next each other in the national pokedex and have similar appearances. I think Honchkrows developed in to dark types to serve as protection to Mismagius that ghost types. :D In addition I can also see Froslass as distant relatives of this line. Booyeah! Thank you RJ Palmer.

I know. That makes no sense. Your telling us a ghost-like creature is the male counterpart for a deformed crow, and to top it off your saying that an ice spirit-like creature is a distant relative.

Well I'm sorry that certain thoughts I have seem to disturb you. I just gave my thoughts influenced by this project. Palmer said that there are no real ghosts in this pokemon project so I'm just trying to fill in things in my point of view. Sorry.

1. Not trying to be disrespectful, but honchcrow has a 50% chance of being male or female. 2. I don't think mismagius would be a bird in my opinion, I would think terrestrial-nocturnal-purple jellyfish with a helium organ, my opinion. 4. Maybe RJ meant that honchkrow males have much larger "beards" than the females

I understand this fan war sort of thing but keep in mind that we are talking about magical imaginary creatures that can do things from shooting jets of flame, transforming into other creatures to small ball like devices that digitalize a living thing into nothing more than code only to have them come out with no particular damage seeming to be done. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!!!

Your not getting what I'm saying. Honchkrow can be male or female look it up. It would be like If I said heracorss is a male only pokemon and it's female counterpart is jolteon. What evidence is their that mismagius and misdreavous are birds, and better yet all female. What would bring you to that conclusion?
