Nothocuda by T-Reqs Nothocuda by T-Reqs
This guy had to undergo some changes to set him apart from Feraligatr, whom I thought he seemed a little too similar to. Gave him a big jagged lower jaw reminiscent of my scrapped Fakemon (Killacuda/Murdacuda) and swapped his tail colors around to show that he’s nonvenmous (red touch black, venom lack, yadda yadda). This guy is based on snakehead fish and Nothosaurus. The tails represent different snakes- normal is supposed to resemble a scarlet kingsnake, while shiny resembles a California kingsnake.

If I had to choose between the three...That'd be a tough choice, actually. They all have great designs and good moves. What stats have they got?

I suppose these guys would be rather bulky in terms of health and special defense, with a workable defense stat. They'd have a decent attack stat and a meager special attack stat with poor speed.

The grass line has high physical attack and very good speed. Physical defense is workable, but special defense and health are poor.
The fire line has high special attack and health. Its speed and physical defense are good, but its special defense is terrible.

I would have done the second evolution a little different. The final evolution looks incredibly devilish!

Mosacuda's nose appears to be like a rodent's in my perspective. I would maybe make look more like a shark's nose. That seems like it would be the easiest change to make. Make the bottom slope of the nose a little steeper and make it all blue. You don't really need to change the lower jaw, tongue, or tooth. Just some thoughts.

For Mosacuda, the only thing I would change is the nose, but that's entirely up to you.
