What Animal/Item do you want a new pokemon to be based off ? There are a lot of pokemon designs that are based of something such as how pikachu is based on a mouse and Growlithe as a puppy sometimes on my free time I like to combine a species of animal/insects are determine which pokemon it has the most similarities with. Two days ago I looked at the Tenrec which is found in Madagascar, Africa kinda looks like a porcupine whats cool about this is that its the only mammal that uses stridulation to make sound like how crickets make noise rubbing their legs together. I looked at its appearance and thought of it has Heliolisk since of a similar color pattern also made me remember how people theory-ed a new type called Sound Type. What pokemon do you think the Tenrec has the most connections with ?
