Hey guys,
I hate writing retractions, so as Sarah said, it's a good job I'm not in politics. Here goes:

I've slept on it, and I've decided I will keep the comments up, so thank you to everyone for your support.

I hope these journals haven't messed anyone around too much. Basically, although I can't go into it too deeply, there's a lot going on in my life right now and that - combined with extended illnesses - have really gotten me down in terms of motivation and mood so I've been struggling to remain my usual happy self. I was going to disable all the comments on my deviations until I felt a little better, I have changed my approach:

I will take a bit of a break. I don't think I've ever had much of one from DA for a long time, I've always been active in one way or another, so I'll take some time and come back with fresh eyes. It won't be a massively long time (a couple of weeks, maybe) but from Monday 30th I'll go on my virtual holiday and try to cool down and right my mood (hopefully then my health will be improved a little too).

I will stick with what I said about faves and comments, so for those of you who didn't read it:

I won't be commenting or faving as regularly as I used to, since I watch a lot of people and have a mountain of faves that I can't keep track of. I will add the odd thing or make the odd comment and of course you're welcome to drop me a line if there's anything specific you want my opinion on or want to talk to me about. I hope none of you think this means I don't appreciate your work or efforts but I understand if there are those of you who wish to unwatch me for it. All I can say is, If I watch you, I support you in my own way and I will be looking forward to your work and keeping track of it.

Thank you all again for your support and apologies for the inconvenience of my current stormy mind.

Smile, you son of a bitch
I had a dream about dragon sharks.

Bullet; Blue Nippup
----------------
Derivation: Nip + Pup
Classification: The fanged Pokemon
Abilities: Swift Swim, Strong Jaw (hidden: Dry Skin)
Type: Water

Happy either in water or by the sea shore, Nippup are curious and inquisitive Pokemon and despite their fanged mouths they are actually quite friendly and playful. These Pokemon do have a strong jaw, though, and their teeth are very sharp; since they are exciteable, their nip can be harder than they intend it to be.

Bullet; Blue Jawsome
----------------
Derivation: Jaw + Awesome
Classification: The fanged Pokemon
Abilities: Swift Swim, Strong Jaw (hidden: Dry Skin)
Type: Water

Jawsome will actively hunt both in water and on land, having no preferences - if they don't find food in one habitat, they will easily wander to the other, though they do prefer to stay close to damp caves if possible. If they lose a fang, another will spring up to take its place and a good sign that Jawsome are in the area is these discarded fangs; they are often found and made into necklaces for good luck.

Bullet; Blue Predaterror
----------------
Derivation: Predator + Terror
Classification: The Dragon Shark Pokemon
Abilities: Swift Swim, Strong Jaw (hidden: Dry Skin)
Type: Water/dragon

No environment is spared as Predaterror's hunting grounds - they can live underwater, on land and can even take to the air with their wing-like fins to hunt down potential prey; this has led them to clash and develop a rivalry with Garchomp over territory and they will often fight for prey. Their mouth is full rows of deadly sharp fangs and their fins are like blades, making them dangerous enemies.

Potential moves list: Fly, Wing Attack, Aerial Ace, Slash, Bite, Crunch, Fire Fang, Thunder Fang, Ice Fang, Aqua Tail, Dive, Aqua Jet, Slash. Night Slash, Surf, Dragon Claw, Dragon Tail, Dragon Rush, Dragon Rage

Bridge over troubled waters by Trueform
Bridge over troubled waters
I'm not 100% happy with this to be honest, but I've had the idea in my head for so long and this is the closest I've got to making it so for now I'll upload it and work on a better version in the future - at least the idea is there and I can update the art when I get better.

Bullet; Blue Trollover
----------------
Derivation: Troll + Strollover
Classification: The Troll Pokemon
Abilities: Rock Head, Dry Skin (Hidden: Solid Rock)
Type: Rock/fairy

Trollover are ancient creatures that can lie still for years at a time without the need to move; they set up home over a river or lodge themselves between two cliff faces below a chasm or short drop and go to sleep, which slows their metabolism, essentially putting them into stasis. When they are walked over, they will wake up and demand a toll to those who walk across their backs, denying access to any who refuse. They have an irrational fear of Gogoat.

Potential moves list: Crafty Shield, Fairy Lock, Geomancy, Play Rough, Ancient Power, Head Smash, Rock Blast, Rock Throw, Rockslide, Rock Wrecker, Smack Down, Stealth Rock, Stone Edge, Wide Guard, Defense Curl, Body Slam, Bulldoze, Earthquake

Bullet; Blue Pupperil
----------------
Derivation: Puppy +Peril
Classification: The Death Omen Pokemon
Abilities: Cursed Body, Intimidate (hidden: No Guard)
Type: Dark/ghost

It is said that they carry a departed soul in the orb around their necks to the next life and seeing one in the wild may be a sign that they have come for yours; it is for this reason Pupperil are seen as death omens. They don't seem to be stopped by any kind of terrain, walking through walls and doors as if they weren't even there.

Bullet; Blue Barghost
----------------
Derivation: Bark + Ghost, play on Barguest
Classification: The Death Omen Pokemon
Abilities: Cursed Body, Intimidate (hidden: No Guard)
Type: Dark/Ghost

Barghost are thought of as death personifications and there are so many rumours surrounding them, it impossible to tell which stories are true and which are just superstition. They allegedly carry the souls of the dead around them like a collar and appear to take the souls of the departed to the next life, acting as ferryman rather than doing the killing themselves; whether this is the case or if they consciously create the writhing spirit forms around them to intimidate is unknown. Their howls chill listeners to the soul.

Potential moves list: Bite, Crunch, Dark Pulse, Feint Attack, Hone Claws, Nasty Plot, Night Slash, Parting Shot, Snarl, Sucker Punch, Torment, Destiny Bond, Curse, Perish Song, Howl, Roar, Lick, Night Shade, Shadow Claw, Mean Look, Shadow Sneak, Shadow Force

Like a bear with a sore head
Bullet; Blue Tunnowl
----------------
Derivation: Tunnel + owl
Classification: The ground owl pokemon
Abilities: Insomnia, Keen Eye (hidden: Technician)
Type: Ground/flying

Tunnowl have a second pair of talons on their wings which they use to dig burrows in areas of low vegetation - they can even live in warmer climates such as deserts by hiding in their burrows from the sun. Although they are capable of flight, they spend much of their time hunting on the ground where tey can run deceptively fast; they are usually found out in the open from dusk until dawn using their excellent night vision to locate prey.

Bullet; Blue Hoobernate
----------------
Derivation: Hoot + Hibernate
Classification: The owl bear Pokemon
Abilities: Insomnia, Keen Eye (hidden: Technician)
Type: Ground/flying

Hoobernate are rarely found in the wild - they fly to high places in mountains and cliffs and dig large caves using their powerful wing talons. Like their name suggests, they collect food all year round and hibernate during winter months; When hunting, they fly above prey and drop onto it using their weight and size to their advantage before catching targets in their powerful talons or a deadly embrace from which there is no escape. when they wake up, they have a very bad temper and will attack if disturbed.

Potential Moves list: Scratch, Bulldoze, Dig, Earthquake, Mud-Slap, Mud Shot, Mud Sport, Sand Tomb, Aerial Ace, Brave Bird, Drill Peck, Feather Dance, Peck, Roost, Wing Attack, Hone Claws, Slash, Night Slash, Body Slam, Crush Claw, Crush Grip, Hypnosis, Fury Swipes, Headbutt, Mean Look, Take Down, Yawn, Rage

Trueform's Profile Picture

Beings as I seem to necessitate some instruction before use, I present to you:

TRUEFORM FOR DUMMIES!

This is handy guide will feature all you need to know about the etiquette in dealing with the non-complexity that is me. I may add to this in the future as needed and it will be handily posted up on my profile as a 'pocket guide' if you will. Now without further ado, let's begin.
------------------------------------------------------
DO UNTO OTHERS
If we watch each other, please don't ask or expect me to comment on your work if you're not willing to do the same for me. Support works both ways, and if you're not willing to take the time to comment on my work, why I should do so for you?

GIFTS FROM ME ARE NOT AN OBLIGATION
I don't make gifts often because I don't have a lot of time and my personal work takes priority. When I do make them, I don't want to feel pressured or rushed into it so please don't hassle me about it; a gift isn't a commission, it's done on my own time and out of kindness. Most people are fine with that and are very patient, so thank you to everyone who is. For those of you who aren't patient, I will either stop making the gift altogether or drop it to the end of my VERY long to-do list, especially after I took the time to write the journal explaining WHY I sometimes have trouble submitting art.

DON'T MISTAKE ME FOR A DOORMAT
I am a very patient person and I try to be as easy-going and kind as I can be; as such, some people see these traits and mark them down as docility. That is a mistake. Treat me how you want to be treated yourself and if you act offensively or rudely, you will be treated the same way.

READ MY JOURNALS
If they're about my personal life, I will always put up a quick version for casual watchers who are only interested in my artwork and a longer version for those interested in me as a person. I only write journals when I have something to say, so if it's been posted, it's been posted for a reason.

Thank you all for listening. I am bluntly honest, so if there's an issue you're concerned with, feel free to contact me directly. The issues mentioned here

ARE NOT AIMED AT ANY ONE PERSON.

They are issues that have been brought up frequently by several people and that is why I have made the journal, otherwise I would have just told you personally rather than making it public.

If you've been affected by any of the topics touched upon in this 'For Dummies' guide, please contact me on the number below.
