(on dA:) *greensoft's recent collaboration in #pixel-workshop inspired me to finally make some fakemon. I've been playing some Spore lately, and also recently watched a program about the sun on tv - therefore I was inspired to create some fakemon that were related to stars.

Protosol is based upon a protostar (the beginning of the formation of a star).
Types: Fire / Ghost
Ability: Inner Focus

Solispe (from sol and wisp, as in will o' wisp) is based upon a yellow dwarf (like our sun).
Type: Fire
Ability: Drought, Flame Body

Solossus (from sol and colossus) is based upon a blue/white giant star.
Types: Fire / Electric
Ability: Flame Body, Volt Absorb

I chose fire and electric for Solossus because it's an awesome combination that makes you think of stuff like plasma, which is what stars are made of anyway. Steel pokemon watch out! Solossus will destroy them all! (Oh wait, apart from all those steel/rock types ...and steelix, dammit).

I could have added some rocks (planets) around Solispe and made it fire and rock type, but I thought that may have been going a bit too far with the type differences (also who the hell would ever want to evolve from a fire/ghost to a fire/rock pokemon).

There are tonnes of abilities that would have suited these pokemon well, so it was difficult to pick them.

 Very good

this is one of the few good fakemon Ive seen in terms of design and idea. I do agree it shouldnt just keep changing.. maybe keep it phsycic like most space pokemon?

 one of the small ones should have levitate

 Thats pretty awesome. Not too much like pokemon sprites, but pretty awesome. I feel like the middle evolution could have more contrast though.

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/15/2010 13:17

Heh the style isn't really pokemon-ish and I don't get why the type is changing during evolution. Even if it's weather related, it should evolve logically. In fact, I don't feel it as an evolution, more like something transforming in another completly different.

Anyway these are great, I really like protosol and solossus. (protosol reminds me of Scruffs)

love em

Love 'em individually/ Great colours and I really like the style. My only problem is they don't feel linked together. Sure there's a cool star theme linking them, but each one looks different from a design standpoint. Most pokemon have some sort of feature linking the evolved form to the evolvee and I don't see that kind of connection here.

Of course, that doesn't mean I don't like them, because I like these a lot. I hope you make some more.

These are very good =D Nice lines and concept. As Scruffs suggested animate them, I think solispe animation bobbing/floating would be nice for your avatar, just looks Larwick to me..

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 3/9/2010 11:07

These are awesome sir, love the idea/names/pixeling.  Naturally, you should animate these ;)

Lots of fakemon lately,i didn't realise how many there was until after i submited mine.

These are pretty amazing sprites.

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/9/2010 04:08

If this were in an actual pokemon game it would be my favorite. There aren't enough fire types or electric types anyway XP
