It has some of the characteristics of a theropod (walking on hind legs). If the Cubone were much bigger and walked on all fours, it probably would resemble a stegosaur or a chialingosaurus.

That's possible, though I wonder if it would work out with its designation of the Lonely Pokémon, or if that designation has any truth to it. Are they like leopards, where they mate, split, babies stay with mom for a few months till they're grown enough (with Cubone, possibly marked by a skull-and-bone finding ritual), repeat? :B

What do they eat? Sure it appears that even the most carnivorous Pokémon have a diet consisting probably halfway of fruit, though that's most likely because they didn't want to show little kids a cute, innocent widdle [insert Pokémon here] being killed and torn to shreds, but how likely is it that Cubone and Marowak came up with these weapons not only as defense, but to catch dinner? That would only work with the Lonely thing if the creature caught was quite small (shrews, baby Rattata, tiny fish) or if they're good at hiding their catches. I think that they are most likely omnivorous. To which side they would lean (carnivorous/insectivorous or herbivorous) in reality is up in the air.

For some reason, I don't visualize Cubone or Marowak as having fur. They both seem more reptilian in their physical characteristics. I would imagine that they eat smaller Pokémon like Rattata as well as fruits or berries. Maybe bird or Pokémon eggs as well.
