Forearm Fossil —> Carpalete —> Kirorpse
Rock / Ghost
So what with the recent Deinocheirus fossil discovery, (A dinosaur previously only known from an enormous pair of arms,) I decided to do the sensible thing and make a pokémon.
I decided to name these guys Carpalethe and Kirorpse. They’re Rock/Ghost type, and are revived from the Forearm Fossil.
Carpalethe -> Kirorpse (Revived from the Forearm Fossil)
I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for months now, and with the recent discovery of a more complete Deinocheirus skeleton, it seemed as like as good a time as any to finally draw them out.
When Carpalethe’s large fossilized armbone was first discovered it was initially thought to be the remains of a massive reptilian Pokémon, possibly a dragon type. However, with the advancement of Pokémon revival technology it was surprisingly discovered that the arms were just about the only physical structure that they have at all.
Revived Kirorpses seem to gravitate toward fossil dig-sites, though it is presently unknown exactly how they are able to locate their fallen brethren without any prior knowledge of the area. It is speculated that they serve as guardians, protecting the spirits of Pokémon who had previously died in mass extinction events.
Their ability is Tough Claws, and their hidden ability is Cursed Body.
