  • Just so everyone knows: I didn’t change Maracatus’ type. It was always pure fire and turns to grass when it’s hit by a water move. I WILL however be adding another grass/fire type at some point.... 🍿

  • I adore the new Maractus variant! It makes much more sense than your first design in my opinion. Also really love the Meowth and Pursion variants. I’m actually not really a big fan of Purserker, I was really looking forward to a new pursion.

  • I actually love these, but I have to say the things that irk me aren't even to do with the design themselves, but the dex entries for them. They don't really hit me all that well and don't say a lot about the pokemon to me.

  • You should make rehydrated Maracatus a different form, my thought being that this seems like it would be a change that lasts the rest of the battle or at the very least it wouldn't end when put swapped out similarly to Cherrim and Zen Mode Darmanitan. My idea is having the peppers turn green like more mature jalapenos and droop the other way, making the black areas slightly greener and having the red mischievous face become more cooler and somber.

  • "The concept behind the regional variants is that they are the same species of Pokemon, but with new adaptations to help them survive in a different environment." Designs Mudbray in a fashion that encourages people to hit it with sticks. Something tells me that won't help it survive. This is just a joke btw, I love the concept.

  • Oh my goodness, Mazian Maractus and Mudbray are adorable, I could see them being actual variants!! I love the design choices you took, simple and obvious, but not too simple to the point it looks lazy. The colors are pleasing to look at, too! I wish they were real, they just seem really cool.

  • Someone has probably said this before... but if you still want to make a pop-corn pokemon you can make it a parasite or other animal that lives in/uses the shed husks from your corn pokemon (or, you know, takes over their bodies if you want to be dark) and can puff up to scare off threats or as it evolves?. It can start as a singular mon, and requires the corn pokemon to be in the party to evolve, or something that takes over unsuspecting colonies. Could be based around the Mexican criminal underworld and be one of the evil team's signature pokemon. (Breaking up families as a parasite?) I don't know, it's your region, but I hope this helps?

  • Im Latino, and honestly, I like both designs equally, the first being cute, and the other being devilish, maybe like the original form could be male and the new one could be female? because i feel like both designs are perfect, and i wanna incorporate them both, because they're are both perfect in my opinion.

  • Much like the new perspective for the starter, great work. Mudbray looks great! Neat concept. I think I prefer the old Maractus. The colors were better in my opinion. I'm not Mexican so I can't comment on the stereotyping, though there were those viral videos where someone asked Mexicans if was okay to were Ponchos and Sombrero's and they didn't care and said to have fun. I think you can do a blend of the two. The old design did seem to be more of a new pokemon then a regional form and the new one seems to be new on the nose to be a sudowoodo type pokemon. The pose of the new one, the chest and bottom design of the old one, colors of the old one. Lose the hat (I think it's a neat addition, maybe the people of the Mazah region got their inspiration from Mazahian Maractus, but I don't like hats on Pokemon, looking at you galarian wheezing). Not sure on where to place the peppers. I like the mustache but it doesn't make much sense. Hands make sense though doesn't seem to be beneficial to the pokemon. Maybe the horns work. The meowth is amazing! I didn't like Galars too much since it was so different from kantos while alolas was too familiar, but yours is a nice blend of familiar and new.

  • I feel like Persian's pattern needs to be a bit more circular. As it stands, its color scheme and pattern reminds me a *little* too much of pokemon eggs. Yes, I know this video is 3 months old. Also, to be clear: I absolutely love all the Mazah region and all of its pokemon, and you're evoking a very clear "theme" to the region without making all of the pokemon look too similar.

  • I like both versions of your regional Maractus. I also want to add that it’d be more interesting for the original maractus, Mazan maractus, and maybe even the old Mazan maractus to exist in the same game (like natively not as gift pokemon). I know Game freak wouldn’t do that in a real Pokémon game but i think it better reflects nature- a biome can have multiple species of the same genus, each filling different niches in the same environment, like how a desert can have lots of different cacti at once.
