Let’s start 2014 off with some Horse Fakemons!
I was talking with a friend on skype when I made the comment about wanting an ice horse based off of a Shire/draft horse. and then I went “… wait why the fuck don’t I just make one?!”
So here we have the ice counterpart to the Ponyta/Blitzle lines! Equesno and Sleighnir. The inspiration was shire horses, sleighs/ice skates, winter, Slepnir and the Northern Lights for the shiny colorations.
Equesno’s about three foot tall, quite common, and a bulky little horse that would have high HP, ATK, DEF, average SP. AT/SP. DEF, and low SPD. Pure ice type, with the Ability Refrigerate/Snow Warning. The name comes from “Equestrian” and “Snow”, but can also be a corruption of “Equis” combined with “NOrse”.
Sleighnir, being based off of the Shire horse, is about six foot one. The already high HP/ATK/DEF stats would get even higher, and the speed stat would actually improve now that the horse has the stability of a full set of sleigh grooves instead of just tiny ice skates Equesno has. In exchange, the Special stats would worsen. The Abilities would still be Refrigerate/Snow Warning. Sleighnir is a much more straightforward combination of ‘sleigh’ and “Slepnir”, the eight-legged horse from Norse mythology.
The shiny coloration for both forms comes from the Aurora Borealis. The Green/Yellow/Gold combination is the most commonly found, so Equesno’s an aqua green whereas Sleighnir’s gold and yellow.
You can use the fakemons if you wish, just please credit me. c:
