    Default Revamp: Tropius

    What CAN be revamped:
    - Movesets (TMs and levelsets) - For TMs, please post the existing list even if you're making no changes, it makes my job much easier.
    - Abilities
    - Egg Moves (POST WITH FATHERS, PLEASE)

    What CANNOT be revamped:
    - Base stats

    We're doing Tropius in this topic.
    Getting these out here because they're needed for the demo.

    Magical Leaf (from Venap line) could be added onto Tropius's Egg Moves, as it's a level-up move in RSE.

    Also, I've edited and added a few things to Tropius's level-up moves:

    -- Leer
    -- Gust
    7 - Growth
    11 - Razor Leaf
    17 - Stomp
    21 - Whirlwind
    27 - Ancientpower
    31 - Body Slam
    37 - Leaf Blade/Air Cutter*
    41 - Synthesis
    47 - Magic Dust
    51 - Sunny Day
    57 - Tempest
    61 - Grasswhistle
    67 - Floral Storm

    Not sure about Leaf Blade, as it's Sceptile's signature move. Still, it fits Tropius. Air Cutter is an alternative in that slot. I can't see Tropius camouflaging anywhere but the forest, and even then it's a stretch. Sky Attack also doesn't fit very well, seeing as Tropius's appearance makes it seem like it can't go very fast.

    I think Air Cutter and Sky Attack fit Tropius better than Tempest and (as an alternative) Aerial Ace. Sky Attack is more about gathering power than about gathering speed. And I'm sure it can drop from the sky as fast as anything else. Tempest, however, I don't think fits. Tropius' job isn't to whip up a storm but rather to be an ecosystem all by itself.

    Cherry Bomb could be a nice addition, though.

    This is exactly what I thought before even reading it. It has fruit hanging from its neck; even if they're not cherries, it would make sense to have such a move.

    Hmm.......Why Silver Wind? Doesn't it consist of bug scales/poweder? Other than that, I don't see any problems with the TM list. No HMs?

    HMs have a separate list.

    Fruit + Flying = bugs + wind = Silver Wind?

    eh....seems like a real stretch to me. If no one else objects, then It can stay. It just seemed strange to me. Then again, there are many strange nuances of pokemon being able to learn moves that make no physical sense for them to have.

    Let's buffify him then.

    I'll throw these out there: Leaf Blade, Sludge Bomb, Arial Ace, Giga Drain (can already be learned by tm, but still), Petal Dance, Double-Edge, Slash, Take Down, ExtremeSpeed, Headbutt, Skull Bash, Swords Dance, Signal Beam.

    Hmm most of those he can either already learn in some way or don't fit in some way:

    Leaf Blade - Seems redundant when Cherry Bomb fits so much better.
    Sludge Bomb - Seems like the antithesis of Tropius
    Aerial Ace - Learned by TM
    Giga Drain - Learned by TM
    Petal Dance - This is fine but he already learns Floral Storm by TM or otherwise which is generally better.
    Double-Edge - Maybe
    Slash - Doesn't fit, won't really help him
    Take Down - See above
    Extremespeed - Could you see Tropius using this?
    Headbutt - Sure
    Skull Bash - Would it help him?
    Swords Dance - Seems strange
    Signal Beam - We've been plastering Signal Beam everywhere, I don't see Tropius using this either.

    I was thinking more supportive moves like Aromatherapy and Light Screen.

    Argh, I'm so sorry, I just checked and Tropius already has basically everything done. In interest of time let's just leave it be so if someone could do the writeup for this one that'd be great:

    For future references, this is missing a bunch of things:
    #020/#027 You need the Caldera/Kirant dex number followed by the National dex number

    Sandshrew
    Mouse Pokemon
    Evolution: Evolves into Sandslash at level 22
    Height: 0.6m Have these in metric if possible.
    Weight: 12kg
    Ability: Sand Veil
    Ability: Earthen Armor
    Egg Group: Ground Egg Group is super helpful.

    Sandshrew: To avoid predators, SANDSHREW curls itself up to look like a small boulder. When intimidated, it burrows deep into the ground to escape its attacker. Pokemon's name: Pokedex Entry, and this should be before BST.

    Base Stats:
    HP: 50
    Atk: 75
    Def: 85
    SAtk: 20
    SDef: 30
    Spd: 40
    BST: 300

    Scratch ---
    Defense Curl 6
    Poison Sting 11
    Sand Attack 17
    Rollout 21
    Magnitude 23
    Swift 30
    Metal Claw 34
    Slash 37
    Rapid Spin 45
    Terra Strike 53
    Spike Wall 56
    Thanks for your help, though
