Drohnisse, the Male Combee Evo [WIP] Empty Drohnisse, the Male Combee Evo [WIP]

Post by Träumerei Mon Oct 20, 2014 10:48 pm

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh time for attractive bugs.

Drohnisse, an alternate, male Combee evolution.

From German 'Drohne' meaning drone + German 'Hornisse' meaning hornet.
The name of Vespiquen, the female evolution, is based off of Latin roots. So Drohnisse, the male evolution, is based off of Germanic roots, with how Germany is known as the 'Fatherland'. 

Stat Spread (Base Stats):
HP: Low (44)
Attack: High (113)
Defense: Low-Moderate (68)
SpAtk: Moderate-High (93)
SpDef: Low-Moderate (68)
Speed: Moderate-High (88)
(Total Base Stat: 474)

Genders Possible: male only.

Signature Move(s): Interdiction and Overwatch
Interdiction: The user emits a special sound wave that causes a headache in the target. Reduces either the opponent's Defense or Speed by one level (both stats have a 50% chance of being lowered). It also has a 20% chance of causing confusion. It is one of two signature moves of Drohnisse. It is a normal type move.
Overwatch: The user protects an ally from harm for one turn. If the user is attacked before the ally makes a move, the effects of Overwatch are nulled. It is one of two signature moves of Drohnisse. It is a normal type move.

Ability: Guts

Type(s): Bug/Fighting

Height: 3'00" (English) | 0.9m (Metric)

Weight: 52.5lb (English) | 23.8kg (Metric)

Species: Drohnisse, the Soldier Bee Pokémon

Pokédex Entry:
1. Highly protective, Drohnisse act as guards to the queen of the Combee hive. Their lifespan is short.
2. They spend their short lives guarding the hive. Highly protective, they will attack intruders on sight.

Egg Group(s): Bug

Evolution Line:
Combee (if female) lvl 21 --> Vespiquen
Combee (if male) fulfills evolution requirements and levels up --> Drohnisse

Evolution Method: The male Combee must fight in a battle where a Vespiquen is present and involved in the fighting, and level up while protecting the Vespiquen. The Vespiquen must remain completely unharmed when the Combee levels up, or else evolution will fail (Note: Lowering of stats do not count as damage).

User Notes:
> Big thanks to Cedric and 2KB for assisting me in creating this fakevo.
> Vespiquen is known for having three signature moves, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to create some signature moves to kind of mirror that. So Drohnisse has two signature move ideas, both inspired by military tactics.
> A majority of its TM/HM-learned moveset is the same as Vespiquen's.
> Belly Drum was included in reference to the Jerusalem cricket, which is neither a cricket nor from Jerusalem. Incredible.
