CHALLENGE: It's evolving II

Seeinng the succes of the Discord Pokemon collab, it's about time that we too do another pokemon related event!

There are a lot of specific rules this week, so read on carefully, and feel free to ask questions.

You are challenged to make 3 original creature designs, also called fakemons. While they can look like they fit in with the Pokemon world, the designs have to be 100% original! The 3 creatures must follow each other up, one could evolve into the next. For some examples, check out these sprites, especially in the top rows there are a lot of series of 3 in there.

For each individual creature you can work with a maximum of 4 colors: Black, white, and one of the color pairs from the pallete (one row). You could do all 3 creatures with the same palette, or optionally have 3 different palette creatures, but within the 56x56 square you must work with one of the 9 given palettes!

The template must be used, but you are welcome to modify the borders and border style as you seem fit, but only using the colors that are already in use.

You can try and adhere to the Pokemon style, or go as crazy as you like, it's all up to you!

The template:

The list of palettes (every row is a seperate palette):

Canvas Size - Exactly 182x68 (56x56 per creature)
Colors - Max 8 (Max 4 per creature, from one row of the palette. No mixing of palettes)
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.
