Crawling from the Crypt by Tomatem13 Crawling from the Crypt by Tomatem13
Kind of a spontaneous idea that came to me while I was watching Samurai Jack's "Birth of Evil" two part episode (one of my all time favorite episodes of any cartoon ever.) After watching Horus, I was inspired to do something Egyptian; I looked up some Gods and Goddesses, stumbling across one by the name of Bat/Bata. Although a goddess, and although represented by a cow head, she gave me inspiration to make Egyptian bats. So here they are!

#??? BATTA: The Crawler Pokemon
(Play on Bata)
HT: 1'04"
WT: 6 Lbs
They prefer dark environments, where they can see very well. If exposed to a sudden burst of light, these Pokemon will be temporarily blinded, but their Dark-type moves' power rises to compensate. BATTA are mischievous Pokemon that take interest in the wondrous treasures left in tombs.

--BATTA evolves into SEPTUS at Level 30--

#??? SEPTUS: The Lurking Pokemon
(Play on Rousettus Aegypticus)
HT: 2'10"
WT: 20 Lbs
SEPTUS hang from the ceilings of darkened crypts by their immobilized wings. In their cocoon-like bodies, their bodily structures slowly take on the form of a stronger being. However, absolute darkness is required to channel this energy.

--SEPTUS evolves into VAMPORIAL at Level 45, when traded with King's Rock--

#??? VAMPORIAL: The Darkness Pokemon
(Vampire Bat+Primordial)
HT: 6'00"
WT: 92 Lbs
A Pokemon whose power comes from the dark memories of ancient tombs, VAMPORIAL feeds off both blood and soul. By crippling its foes bodies, VAMPORIAL turns its opponent into an obedient mummy. Incredibly fast, both on land and in flight, this treacherous Pokemon rushes towards the nearest source of pitch darkness to escape the sun.

Hope you like them! I'm quite happy with the uniqueness of the idea. I especially like the cocoon mid-form, which still retains the appearance of a sleeping bat. :)

By the way, the whole evolutionary line has the ability Levitate, so no weaknesses for the big guy. Unless it's Dreamworld ability is Mummy...

May I use some of your fakemon for a fanfic? I'll give full credit.

One of the coolest Fakemon I've ever seen. That final evo looks badass and terrifying, and I love that second stage. The body being wrapped like a mummy is so cool and the jaggedness of the wings is perfect :D

Well thank you very much! :)
He was my original inspiration when I first came to deviant art, so I guess I took a page from his book years ago!
