Arkimaleon (Archmage / Archimage + Chameleon)
Shaman Pokémon
"Forest tribes worship it for its amazing psychic abilities, which it can use to see the future. When it disappears using its camouflage, many believe it actually vanishes into a different realm. It shakes the beads on its legs and tail to put itself in a magical trance and enhance its psychic powers."

Arkimaleon: Based on the horned chameleon. I wanted the Kameeleaf line to be something other than just Grass-Type chameleons, so I decided to take a different route in the end. The shaman / witch doctor idea was the most interesting idea I could think up, so I went with that. The head is supposed to look like a witch doctor’s headdress. The shaking idea just came from the fact that whenever I think of a tribal shaman casting spells, I think of him shaking a magical staff with leaves, beads, and skulls on the top.

Minotorch: Thanks to MrCoal for the idea of the Calfire line ending with a minotaur. When I first thought up the evolutions I had it evolving into a big Ox, but it felt very dull compared to a minotaur. Because of the minotaur’s mythology it allowed me to expand on the Dark aspect a lot better. The fire on its head starts at the top and travels down its back a bit, like a mane. They wait deep within their labyrinth and can sense anything that happens inside, so when travelers get led inside by the torches Minotorch set, they can immediately extinguish them from anywhere inside the labyrinth and begin hunting down the travelers.

Sabretain: I shaped the fur on its chest to look a little like a scarf blowing in the wind to make the Ice aspect a little more believable. I didn’t make the antlers anything astounding, since water deer aren’t supposed to have antlers in the first place and its main forms of attack are meant to be its fangs. Sabretain are supposed to be mysterious and very rare Pokémon, so the overall design is very “flowing” to give it an elegant appearance.

Please don’t use this artwork for anything. Thank you!
