  • Instead of a dumbell when you were first drawing the 'drumstick' in its hand I thought of a blow gun (a poison dart* frog)

  • Honestly, ‘Cryokero’ would be a fitting name for croacrozen, IMO. Cryo from the Greek word for “freezing”, and “kerokero”, the Japanese onomatopoeia for the croak a frog makes :) Maybe you can work around this name for possibly a pre-evo for this little guy.. :D

  • Only thing I'm angry about is Croacrozen's thawed shiny form not looking enough like Yoshi lol. Also, Croacrozens thawed shiny form being a character from Super Mario Bros reminds me of Delta Blastoise's shiny form, from Pokemon Insurgence, being Bowser.

  • you should be able to give Crocrozen different items to change it's mushroom into various weapons; imbuing it with different typings or special moves. similarly to how Cramorant can sometimes use a Pikachu making the move a little different. also a new eveelution is always a fun idea to play around with even if it is a bit overdone.

  • You should make an evolution of Croacrozen which is both ice and poison in which he has gained the strength to fight while being mostly cased in ice, including his mushroom to be used as a double ended spear

  • I must say that croacrozen is my favorite pokemon of the Mazah region so far. I love the concept, the design and the fact that it offers ice and poison types to your pokedex, which was needed. It's typically the kind of pokemon I would like in my team, and that I would like to see perform well in strategy. That's why I propose this tweak: Give the frozen form low base stats, and greatly increase them when it unfreezes. Make the "Thaw" talent trigger when the pokemon is burning and give the unfrozen form Guts as a hidden talent. That way, you can have sick shenanigans with the flame orb. Anyway, you did an amazing job on those designs, keep it up.

  • I was watching the other day a show called America’s funniest home videos animal edition and there was a animal that I’ve never heard of before it’s a bird called a Potoo. The host made the commented that it looked like a Pokémon and he was right. When I looked at some more pictures of this bird I thought it looked like Pokémon to. Have you ever heard of this bird before if not you should definitely check it out I think it would make a good concept. Later keep up the good work 😸

  • Honestly. Chespika's old design could be used as an evolution if I'm being honest. That's something that I think would help benefit it and separate it from the rest of the Pikachu clones. It's type would of course be Electric/Fighting and/or Electric/Flying. Both designs look incredible though, major credit where credit is due.

  • Noctovispa’s redesign was … ok, it’s not bad I actually like it but I do prefer the older design. Idk the proportions just made it look more big and intimidating, a leader commanding its armies is the vibe I got. I get why the wings had to be pushed out but it got rid of the mysteriousness of the pokemon. However making the body more visible is a good idea, but I feel like the bottom part is the most important. So maybe making the Pokémon more hunched over so the wings wouldn’t obscure most of the bottom part could be a good solution without sacrificing some of the Pokémon’s personality. Also the frozen frog is super adorable I love it’s design so much

  • Maybe with the frog you can make him a poison/fighting type and then. Have an ability called freezeover where when hail is introduced to the battle it reverts to it's frozen form and when it is introduced to sunny day or intense sunlight it unfreezes and reverts back to it's original form and maybe if it's in it's original for gets a boost in attack during sunny day and vise versa the frozen form gets a boost in special attack if in a hail!

  • Nice shiny for frozen Croacrozen, feels very believable lol. Most of your shiny forms look great, which imo isn't true of many of Game Freak's shiny forms, so having Croacrozen be just like Regice in the 'barely noticeable' category works to me. And it's still worth hunting for because of the Yoshi reference in its thawed form.

  • I'm confused by the choice to take 2 unused type combinations and just barely avoid using them. Both mazian Maractus and this frog have 2 forms, and each one (when combining the forms) are unused type combinations. And yet, they don't actually count since they aren't duel typed? They are fire OR grass, and Ice OR poison, and it just really strikes me as odd? Am I alone in this? I think it would be perfectly fine for the frozen form to be ice/poison, and the thawed version to be pure poison, and for maractus to be fire/grass in the dry form, and pure grass in the hydrated form.
