Houndrunt
Genders Possible M/F
Signature Moves N/A
Ability Early Bird: SLEEP conditions lasts for half as long, rounding down. For example, half of three turns is 1.5, which rounds down to one turn. When the number of turns to sleep is one, half of this rounded down is zero, and the Pokémon wakes up instantly.
Flash Fire: Activates when user is hit by a damaging Fire-type move (including Fire-type Hidden Power). Once activated, user’s Fire-type moves deal 1.5 times damage. While this ability is in effect, this Pokémon is immune to damage from Fire-type attacks and Fire-type Hidden Power (accuracy and effect from these moves are ignored). For Fire-type Pokémon with this ability, Will-O-Wisp activates this ability without having an effect. If a non-Fire-type Pokémon has this ability, Will-O-Wisp will activate the ability and will have an effect.

User Notes To get Houndrunt, the father needs to be either a dark type or fire type, or both, and holding a bone shard.
Only one Houndrunt is born in a littler, when one is, it is normally abandoned by it’s parents to fend for itself, as Houndrunts are normally the runt of the littler, and most parents don’t want to go through the trouble of taking care of it. It’s pretty rare when the mother keeps and raises it. Because of abandonment, not many make it to evolution, and die within the first week if not the first day of being abandoned. Those that do make it to evolution are extremely solitary and don’t trust others easily, though they tend to be a little stronger then most. Some Houndrunts are sometimes taken in by another pack of wild pokemon or Houndoom, so it’s not highly unlikely to see one with a pack of Mightyena, Arcanine or other canine pokemon. Even a lonely female Houndoom will take it in and raise it as it’s own, though this normally only happens if the female was unable to have pups of her own and then most likely abandoned by her mate, or if she had been a Houndrunt herself at some point and knows what the pup is going through. Sometimes even a male Houndoom will care for it, though it’s mostly out of pity when that happens.
Houndrunt’s are not commonly found in the wild, and so it’s more likely to find one with a breeder or trainer.

The design is solid and well thought out. The consistency as a pre-evolution is nicely done, and the markings of a canine is also a nice touch, especially as a substitute for the tell-tale skull atop the Houndours' head. (Amazing artwork, as always Darastrix)
Also love that you made its' tail long. It implies that 'Dours get them cropped like Rotts and Pitbulls, which only emphasize that this species is a fighting 'breed.'

I also like what you put in the user notes, and I think it really solidifies what it would be like to be a runt in this species' packs. Especially the part that it would probably only be found to survive in captivity or with breeders.
I can see this making a great addition to our canon.

I vote up.

I love this idea. The design is solid and It fits into the canon by taking the place of houndour. I find the evolution method fitting. A Houndrunt has to prove itself a skilled hunter/fighter despite it's physical condition to evolve. To me, that backs up your following statement that, once a houndrunt does evolve, it tends to be a little bit stronger.

I vote up.
