Pathogem and Mega Pathogem by Quanyails Pathogem and Mega Pathogem by Quanyails
This was my submission to Smogon's 21st Create-a-Pokemon Project, a Rock/Poison Mega Pokemon that exploited the advantages of its typing. It took me several iterations to snatch a satisfying inspiration for this design, even after the abilities were decided! CAP 21 having Regenerator and Magic Guard reminded me of Reuniclus, and a microscopic creature and the CAP's Poison typing made me think of my old fakemon Trirus. I worked with that as a basis and ended up with an alien gemstone virus. :) I admit that the design may be a bit mundane to some, but I kept things simple for the sake of spriters and modelers. CAP submitters had twice as much work as usual, so I thought it may be nice to not strain their time too much.

I admit I like how 'Pathogem' clicked for me as a name, but it reminds me a bit of 'Stratagem', which works in its design better. :P Ah, well. This design didn't win, so I'll call it whatever I'd like.

For the curious, here are the other two ideas I was trying out before settling in on Pathogem.

The concept of Pokemon belongs to Nintendo, while my designs still belong to me. :P

What an interesting design!  Always thought that viruses had such awesome designs in real life. x3

Also, kinda funny seeing such a little guy getting a Mega. xD
