Big project I was working on with Dodrio variants. Here's a list of them all plus a little flavor blurb:
-Tank (Noivern): Prized for their unmatched prowess in battle but almost impossible to train. Unpredictable, and wild, these dodrio require a very skilled trainer to be even feesable in battle.
-Marathon (Archeops): Dodrio are known endurance runners, and this variant doubles that standard. Able to run for days without tiring, in a variety of different climates with little difficulty.
-Show (Pidgeot): Used widly in the show circuit, but almost useless in battle as the numerous long feathers are easily tangled around each other and the necks of the dodrio.
-Warrior (Braviary): Excellent guard pokemon utilized on ranches, mesh well with other species, very sociable. Need to be checked regularly for injuries, they will not show signs of pain or discomfort.
-Wooly (Swoobat); The only furred Dodrio variant, suitable for colder climates and makes a great family pokemon, very affectionate.
-Mafioso (Honchkrow): Extremely vain and territorial. Does not play well with other Pokemon until a heirarchy is established, usually with it on top.
-Pond (Farfetch'd): Not well suited for land mobility, but excellent endurance swimmers, and able to carry heavy loads across water.
-Toy (Sigiliph): The only known Dodrio variant capable of flight. More territorial than the Mafioso variant. Driven to protect vast areas of land. Despite the name, not suitable for children.
-Prehistoric (Aerodactyl): The preferred battle variant, more trainable than it's Dragon counterpart and stiz l competent in battle.
-Wildfire (Talonflame): Kicks more than pecks. Has incredibly strong legs and is suitable for colder climates. Good nest pokemon.
-Songbird (Altaria): A second favorite in the show circuit, more for the lovely voice than looks, but still seen frequently.
