    Quick advice for those creating a Pokemon.

    Decide the typing first and then fit the design to it. Don't make a design then try to decide a type for it. That will be all.

    I actually disagree. I think it's more effective to make the creature then decide it's typing.


    But then again, that's just what works for me.

    I prefer Typing first. It gives the Pokemon a direction to go in, rather than being just a random mesh of ideas. It also usually makes it easier to know what it's typing is just by looking at it.

    That's very true. I've never really thought about that, actually. Sometimes, I just have random inspirations for pokemon and I come up with a type for it based on design.

    Like, this one time, I had a dream about a branched evolution of Tentacool, that's like a fish thing that's attached to a metal ring. I decided it was water/steel due to its metal ring.

    And this one other time, I wanted to make an icy robot that was steel/ice type (a really bad combo, I know) and I drew a design based on that.

    So, in my opinion, it's actually better to come up with a design first, and then fit the type in. Because we're not thinking about the pokemon's competitive value, so type doesn't really matter. But if you notice that a certain type is severely lacking from the pokedex, then you need to create a new one of that type. It sort of works both ways.

    I think everyone has their own creative process ... however you come up with your pokemon is probably best for you ...

    I find an animal I like (and hasn't been taken), then I experiment with pictures and moves. That's just my way, though. Smile
