Type: Wood
Category: The Two-Headed Falcon Tuxemon
Description: One of Pairagrin's heads is always searching for prey, while the other focuses on flying at great speed.

I'm imagining a really intense look for Pairagrin, something like Dodrio and Pidgeot having a love-child. Sleek and angular lines, a little like a fighter jet.
It would have below-average HP and Attack, low defense, very high speed, and above average intelligence.
I don't know if intelligence is represented in the engine atm, but I think of it as a clever bird.

I don't know about colors, but earth-tones make the most sense to me.

Type: Fire
Category: The cinder tuxemon. (?)
Description: ?

Cindinal would look just like an American Northern Cardinal, with the black bits around the face having bright orange cracks (like glowing embers) and emitting wisps of smoke.
For stats, I imagine it would be a bit like Pairagrin; High speed, low-ish hp and defense, slightly low attack. Maybe a high Sp.Att. to represent it's fire-y nature?

As a younger form of Arsinal, it should have some of its features softened to make it look more juvenile.

Type: Fire
Category: The pheonix tuxemon. (?)
Description: ?

Arsinal would be the next form of Cindinal, with all of its feathers looking like glowing hot metal wire. It should look like a blue-jay in shape (they're a little... pointier?), but red and orange because fire.


P.S. While typing this up I had the thought that there could be a base Cardinal/Blue-Jay mon that evolves into several elemental forms. Like Cardigale for Water or Cardarbor for Wood. Thoughts on that?

Oooo, my wife had the idea of a Pairagrim evolution for Pairagrin and I thought that sounded cool!

Also, a Cardibranch could evolve into Cardarbor.

Thanks xirsoi, they sound good! Have you done any sketches or sprite art for them? That's usually the next step in bringing these creations to light.

We already have a family of fiery cardinal-based monsters,

But these new ones could be variants of those, or a new take on the idea - especially if you go in the direction of a base plus several elemental forms.

That would explain why the name Cardinale kept popping into my head...

I don't have any art at the moment, wanted to get feedback first.
I'm rather enamored with my base+elemental forms idea, so I'll probably do some thinking and come up with a full set of 11.

Tanager (the name of a group of species in the Cardinal family)






What do you think of these names?
