Shaha Region!: Shaha Region Legendaries : Ghouinn

by Lord Of Pain

Lord Of Pain The third legendary of the Shaha region, part of the Disaster trio
Hi guys! Today I'll be talking about the third of the Middle East/Persian/Egyptian based Shaha region fakemon Legendaries! today it will be Ghouinn!!

Species name: Ghouinn

Type: Ghost/Fairy

Pokedex entry: It is sealed in a collection of cursed graves scattered around the west of Shaha, it's presence in our world brings Fall, when told by Arceus it causes Plagues of all kinds to punish humans

Ability: endless appetite - all health draining moves this pokemon has gain priority as it vibrates an aura of endlessly craving food, sometimes to the point of wandering harsh climates for it, all pokemon weak to ground have all their stats lowered by one

Appearance: the top half is dark grey and that of a mummy with the bottom missing with the bandages all ripped and shredded, grey smoke taking the form of needle like legs coming from the bottom, wears a metal fiendish mask, a necklace of Hyena skull and a cloak and hood made of Hyena fur, it's arms go down all the way to its knees, it's white crystal clawed fingers continue to its feet, it has black eyes with red tiny pupils

Signature Move: Carnage/Ghost type - in a savage heartless rage the user hits all pokemon on the field, for every enemy and Ally pokemon killed the user gets a random stat boosted by one

Name and Design Origin: Ghouinn's name origins come from the world Ghoul and Djinn, Djinn in pre and post Islamic stories where supernatural entities with mystical powers (fairy type), Ghouls where one of the many type of Djinn which dwelled around the dessert and some graveyards in search of easy prey or fresh corps to feed on (Ghost type), they also held resemblances to Hyenas hence the Hyena skulls and fur cloak

    Hey, no problem ^^ I like hearing about creative ideas and I'm happy to provide constructive criticism when asked!
    And I'd definitely love what Acel comes up with artways re: these things! They have some pretty great art. ^^

    @StellarWind Elsydeon yes you are ^^

    Also decided that the stats lowered by the abilities will only be the defence and special defence stats

    Also Acel volunteered to draw my legendaries so I thought you'd like to keep an eye out for that, again thanks for giving me feedback, I really appreciate it

    Again, I love the degree of thought you put into the designs and name origins - and I was wondering where would you integrate some form of djinn into the region! Crossing them with ghouls (and hyenas - nice design touch, and the explanation you've mentioned for it in the bigger region writeup makes it make even more sense) was a pretty cool idea. I actually appreciate the fact that the signature move does not distinguish friend from foe and has a Moxie-type effect to it, and the idea of health-draining moves getting priority is also pretty interesting. The design seems to evoke a certain sense of wrongness that is incredibly appropriate on a monstrous scavenger-carnivore ghost-fae. Am I right in assuming this is the Fast, Frail but high-attack legendary for this batch? ^^
