I've sent this to 4 friends, but I've decided to put it here and see what people think of my writing. You see, I'm planning a Wiki of my Fanon 'Verse which includes Pokémon, and I've used Pikachu for an example. If anyone can tell me what I could possibly improve for my wiki before I work on others, I'll be greatful...
(Move to the Block if it's more suited for it)
Edit: by request, here's a index of the studied:
PON #025 - Pikachu (Desumomuris exemplar)
PON #132 – Ditto (Effingocreatura ignotus)
PON #143 – Snorlax (Amplusursus negotium)
PBN #003 – Sceptile (Gramensauros extraxi)
PJN #065 – Scraggy (Tergumlacerta brevis)
PON #025 - Pikachu (Desumomuris exemplar)
Desumomuris exemplar are small, yellow creatures with brown markings and red cheeks, actually a much more conductive fur designed to allow electrical energy to jump to their target. They store this energy in electric sacs, which constantly generate static in order to replace that which is lost. However, this process only occurs during sleep, much as the Human body repairs itself and removes any toxics. They're able to direct the electric current to a specific target, usually berries or other animals they want fended off, and alter the voltage into three different strengths.
The species' average weight, according to tests, comes to 13.2 pounds, while averaging a height of 1'04". By that logic, a Desumomuris exemplar's BMI would be 36.2.
Desumomuris exemplar have two long sensors that look and act much like an Earth Rabbit's ears. However, they aren't ears, rather sensors that pick up nearby electric signals. This is how they locate the electrical wires they like to gnaw upon and any potential predators. Their actual ears are located just beneath the connection point for these sensors, beneath the because the sensors proved more useful for 'looking out' for predators, unlike the ears which proved useless against predators like Pidgeotto who could remain silent when hunting and hide within the trees.
Being a Herbivore, Desumomuris exemplar lack kanine. Instead, they have 4 incisors in place at the front of the mouth, the two on the upper jaw being the sharpest. They have 20 molars, 5 per set each. Because of the sharp incisors, they have a nasty bite on them that usually leaves deep gashes and scars.
The fur of the Desumomuris exemplar is quite strange. Each colour indicates a level of conductivity: yellow fur, while conductive enough to keep a static charge powerful enough to 'paralyse' a nerve system for a while, is far less conductive then the red fur. The brown fur, meanwhile, isn't conductive in anyway, while the black fur is designed to pick up any electrical impulses in the area around it better then the rest of the fur.
A Desumomuris exemplar's tail is a grounder, designed to release access energy from the electric sacs in any chance of a buildup. It does this via a special set of nerves that are designed to feed the electrical charge to the ends, where the fur releases it. Because of this, the tail is also incredibly sensetive, to the point of causing sharp pain to it should anyone grab it, though a simple touch will only alert the creature to one's presence. When pulled, the creature will make use of it's ability to transfer large bouts of electricity to it and shock the offender or merely turn around and severly bite whatever's grabbed the tail.
While they appear to be stubby, the Desumomuris exemplar's arms and legs are, in fact, quite strong. Their muscles are compressed, allowing it to match it's energy-related attacks with it's physical attacks, including a little extra. However, a majority of this strength is put toward the creatures speed over all, allowing to even keep up with it's 'evolved' counterpart for a while.
Females are known for the missing chunk in their tail. It is unknown why the tail has evolved like this, instead of merely having differing marks to the males, but it doesn't really matter, as Desumomuris Infantia can often be seen sat in the notch, riding with their mothers until they're able to fend for themselves.
Desumomuris exemplar are forest creatures. They evolved proper in the Kanto region, due to the somewhat chilly climate. Desumomuris exemplar, therefore, prefer and usually seek out colder climates, but will happily thrive in a warmer climate so long as there is a collection of trees that can replicate a forest environment and a viable food and water source that meets up to their minor demands.
Another likely place they'll turn up is areas which produce electricity. Power plants often need constant care in the off chance a Pikachu wanders in and start chewing upon the electrical wires, as if startled then tey can easily cause damage to the surrounding area. If a power plant is abandoned, such as the one in the Kanto region, then Pikachu will flock and live within, usually causing havoc for anyone who attempts to revive the Power Plant for use.
Desumomuris exemplar are herbivores, therefore eat mostly berries. Oran Berries seem to be a particular favourite amongst them, but apples and other fruits and vegetable will be sufficient. They will also happily eat human processed foods, but it is advisable to keep them on berries, as they will grow much better then if they were on any other diet.
Desumomuris exemplar are pack animals and very much social creatures. They rarely travel alone, but it does happen when they're gathering food for their mate. They often travel in quite large packs, thus can prove a nuiscance should a pack wander into a nearby town. Should one be seperated, then it can often be seen making friends with others, eventually making a small pack of it's own. Should it relocate it's original pack, then it will rejoin with the pack but also bring along it's new pack. This often causes problems for creatures that aren't designed for travel.
Desumomuris exemplar aren't territorial, prefering to move around and explore then sit in one place. However, should they locate something generating an electrical output, they will flock to it. It is unknown why, but it appears that the output gives the creature pleasure, much as certain drugs give Humans pleasure. Therefore, it is advisable to keep a close watch on one that has recently begun gnawing on power wires and allowing itself to be shocked.
It is because of this behaviour that Humans develop bonds with them. Human children are particularly fond of them because they share a desire to move from location to location rather then stay in one area. Because both are pack animals, it can be expected to see a Human Trainer who does own one to keep it out of it's container in order to keep each other company, even in the presence of other Humans. However, if they are kept in one place in order to become a 'pet', then it is advisable to allow them to run around outside after training them to return to the home, or walk them on a non-conductive leader at regular intervals, like a dog.
Desumomuris exemplar don't 'evolve' when a level of Sentioliquor is reached, unlike a majority of other creatures. It will, however, 'evolve' when a certain level of electric current within it’s body is reached, as the body adapts to the excess. Naturally, it takes a total of 8 years without discharging for the natural occurance, but Humans have found that they can immediately prompt evolution by introducing something called a Thunderstone, which seems to provide the necessary charge.
Likewise, it’s prior form, a Desumomuris Infantia, won’t ‘evolve’ when a certain level of Sentioliquor is reached, unlike other creatures where the process is prompted for that reason. Instead, a level of Seratonin must be reached, whereupon it will react with the Sentioliquor and prompt the ‘evolution’.
