Aerodactyl Variations by TipsyRa1d3n Aerodactyl Variations by TipsyRa1d3n
OKAY, dunno how well I pulled this off! Gave it my best shot, considering Aerodactyl is in the Flying Egg Group for some reason. It'd made more sense of they were in the Dragon Egg Group, but this'll do! So, here, we've got several species of Aerodactyl that existed during back in prehistoric times, that resemble the pterosaurs of ancient times! Let's see what we've got here...

----------

Wyvern Variation (Purebreed) - The standard and most well-known Aerodactyl variation. Fast, fierce, and powerful, they were ideal apex predators for their time. In ancient human civilization, their fossils were often mistaken for dragon skeletons.

Hatzegopteryx Variation (Fearow) - The second biggest Aerodactyl variation, whose immense size allows them to steal kills from other large predators, and reduce competition by picking off baby and juvenile predator species. 

Pterodaustro Variation (Pelipper) - A small, but plump Aerodactyl variation. They are piscivorous, and use their big bills to fish and frisk for plankton and seaweed. They are quite harmless compared to other Aerodactyl subspecies.

Pteranodon Variation (Skarmory) - An unusually fast and durable variation of Aerodactyl, who are smaller and less physically strong, so they are piscovores, while also being skilled at scavenging and stealing other predators' kills.

Dimorphodon Variation (Swoobat) - A small and numerous variation of Aerodactyl. They are also one of the noisiest variations, who excel at Special Attack. They also eat enjoy eating fruits and nuts, making them less dangerous to approach.

Ornithocheirus Variation (Unfezant) - An ornate and brightly colored variation of Aerodactyl. They mate the most frequently out of all these variations, and spend much of their time preening or tending to their head ornaments for mating season.

Thalassodromeus Variation (Swanna) - A primarily aquatic Aerodactyl variation. They are more partial to freshwater environments, and very frequently fly across continents. They are better able to endure cold winter conditions, especially during migration.

Sordes Variation (Archeops) - A significant paleontological find, this Aerodactyl variation allowed scientists to uncover how Egg Groups worked in the ancient past, as well as helping them discover fossils that have feathers.

Pterorhynchus Variation (Chatot) -  A very small variation of Aerodactyl. They are also one of the most intelligent, being able to remember many things that their parents teach them. Their feathers become vibrant during mating season.

Quetzalcoatlus Variation (Dodrio) - The biggest Aerodactyl variation. They can fly, but they are better at galloping on all fours, able to run as fast as a Rapidash, and are primarily terrestrial hunters. They are occasionally born with multiple heads.

Ooh, I like!
As a pterosaur fan, I like the various species you based these on, including fairly obscure species like Sordes and Pterodaustro!

If the Quetzal Variant is part Dodrio....shouldn't it have three heads?

Well what I'm thinking in this case is that the whole three-heads thing is mostly exclusive to Dodrio, although it occasionally shows up in crossbred Pokemon as a mutation rather than a main feature.

I like the Dimorphodon one. It's really cute and the description makes it sound almost like it could be a pet. :)

Thank ya very much dude!

I imagine they actually might be great pets, since they are both smaller AND non-carnivorous. They probably use those sharp fangs to crack open nuts, or peel the skin off fruits. And they enjoy head scratches!

I like how it looks a lot like Chatot, but also a Pokemon that really could have existed, knowing how vibrant and ornate real pterosaurs could have been. They probably make really cool and exotic pets too!

It's also kind of ironic that the Dimorphodon Variation might be more viable than the Standard, since they can use Special Attacks far better! I.e that Hyper Beam they learn via level up.

Thank ya very much dude!!!

This was a REALLY fun Variations activity, since I saw something like this before on Tumblr, but decided to expand it with my own twist on it! Also continuing with the fact that the appearance of variations have a lot to do with what Pokemon species they are compatible with!

The trick here is not just to make them palette swaps, but have noticeable physical differences that come from each breeding pair. And I'm so glad you like it! ^^

You're welcome :aww:

I think I know what you saw- an Aerdoactyl variations based on real pterosaurs, but only head shots.

btw, to not spam you note, have you seen new Pokemon Salandit? I'm sure you will LOVE it!
and...wouldn't it become kind of adopted kid to Gustav and Boa? Sandile-like apperance and poison type? :D

*GASP* YESS!!! Ohmylord, Salandit, that Pokemon us adorable! Its cry that sounds like malicious laughter, the mischievous look in its eyes, the color scheme, all of it is perfect!! I absolutely love it with all my heart, right next to Drampa!

I think it definitely would have a place as an adopted kid of theirs. ^^
