For those of you who are fans of my Nega-Mega Evolution designs, I've decided to create this thread specifically to display them. For those of you who don't know what they are, here's a brief explanation of them Spoiler: Premise of Nega-Mega Evolution This was a concept I thought of shortly before Mega Evolutions were revealed, so once they were first introduced in Japan and leaked worldwide this past summer, I decided to dub the term “Nega-Mega Evolution” since it has some similarities, but is still seen as a darker, more savage version. The simplest way to explain this idea is that it combines Mega Evolution with the special radio waves Team Rocket used in Gen II that forced pokémon to evolve and resulted in creating the Red Gyarados, but the paragraphs below provide a more scientific explanation. Unlike regular Mega Evolutions, which require mega stones, key stones, and a strong bond with your pokémon, this transformation is activated when a pokémon is able to hear a certain high-pitched frequency through artificial means such as a hearing aid. Once the pokémon is able to hear the frequency, the sound waves act as a stimuls to certain areas of the brain that reduces their superego but heightens their id, senses, strength, stamina, blood pressure, and metabolism beyond their natural limitations—similar to overclocking a machine. As a result, the pokémon’s heightened abilities trigger another stimulus in their bodies that normally activates when evolving, forcing them to take on a new form that fully utilizes their newfound power. Once the frequency stops producing the required sound waves, or the pokémon is unable to hear them, the stimuli immediately shut down and they instantly revert back to their original form. However, there are several drastic side effects that make Nega-Mega Evolution more dangerous and risky. First of all, the stimulus effect from the sound waves also causes a pokémon to have strong feelings of anger and frustration, and makes them more likely to go into violent tantrums or fits of rage. Second, since the sound waves heightens their id and reduces their superego, they now act solely on primal instincts and behave as feral predators that are mostly capable of fighting and destroying anything they come in contact with. Lastly, since Nega-Mega Evolution causes a pokémon to perform beyond their natural limitations, they use up too much of their energy- similar to when a computer is overheating or when you try to exercise while you're exhausted- and if they stay in this state long enough, they are at the risk of dying from fatigue and exhaustion. I stopped ever since we got more information on OR/AS since I thought the Primal Reversions made them obsolete knock-offs, but recently I decided to start them up again. Right now, I'm going to start working on three new ideas, but since they may take a while I'll be posting my older designs here until they're finished. I'm also going to take requests, though right now I can only do three requests at the moment & only one pokémon per person. Nega-Mega WIP List: Nega-Mega Flygon (Requested by @Skyzor ) Nega-Mega Zoroark (Requested by @UndeadRaptor13 ) Nega-Mega Kingdra (Requested by @Draco Gengar) Nega-Mega Request List Project X (Requested by @Umreader ) Nega-Mega Froslass (Requested by @Icee Aaron ) Nega-Mega Lucario (Requested by @Derpy Lucario ) To start things off, I thought it'd be a good idea to have the first Nega-Mega evolution, & one of my personal favorites, Nega-Mega Vanilluxe Spoiler: Nega-Mega Vanilluxe Spoiler: Information I felt that Vanilluxe would be the best pokémon to introduce this concept since none of the Gen V pokémon received proper mega evolutions (NOTE: This was before the release of Mega Audino) & how the Vanillite line is- based on what I've seen- one of the most despised pokémon species. Similar to how Vanilluxe is based on a double-scooped ice cream cone, Nega-Mega Vanilluxe is based on a bowl of ice cream with multiple scoops and a cherry on top (indicated by the gem on the top scoop's forehead). I also added a few elements to make it appear more intimidating such as crab legs, more horrific faces on each of the scoops, and turning the straw-like thingy into a pair of demonic horns.
