Oh I forgot to tell you. You forgot to add the Wurmple Evol. Family.

The 2nd pokemon on the first Row (Swadco? Pineloon?) is hilarious. It's like, "why the eff am I in a shell with my yellow face sticking out?"

Swadloon always was a grumpy looking fellow.

where does my wedipede tie into all of this?

I'm not sure. Since centipedes are not related to insects in reality, Venipede might actually be more related to the scorpion Pokemon.

when i read scorpion, all i thought was "GET OVER HERE?"

sounds cool though

I would try to keep Caterpie closely related to Venonat and Venomoth. The programming-error "crack" theory actually aesthetically makes some sense, and I think fans would appreciate a call-back referencing the similarities.

Yeah, I did think of that. We'll try and put that in but I'm not sure how.

Dont forget we have a beedrill durant ancestor before the durant/beedril/vespiquen... wait I have been here in how long again?

Durant is a ant, not a bee :P

Durant is based off of ants
Beedril is based off of wasps
Vespiquen/combee are based off of bees
Ant : [link]
Wasp : [link]
Bee : [link]
All 3 are suborder Apocrita (which consists of wasps, bees and ants. more info here ) according to this information, but ants and most wasps are under the superfamily Vespodia (which contains social wasp families and ant families, but no bee faimlies. more info here [link] ) whereas bees fall under the superfamily Apodia ([link]) then again, beedrill and vespiquen do have quite a few traits of the other (especially vespiquen). This leads me to consider that maybe all three have an equidistant meeting point, and said bee/wasp ancestor to contain traits of all 3 mons right?

I'm probably overthinking this aren't I?

I coulda sworn we did. But im not finding it in the data base... as I said its been forever since I gave an in depth look at these so faulty memory may be part of it.

Well, I scanned over everything and didn't find it. Someone said they were going to make it at one point but they never did.

Ive played around with the combee/weedle family ancestor sprites and factored a little durant in. I can upload them if you like, all I ask is who to credit for the sprites i edited.
Reply
:iconpkmnoriginsproject:
PkmnOriginsProject Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sure, I'd love to see them.

Of course, I always credit sprites I use (although if I don't it's a mistake and I'll credit them as soon as someone points it out)

:iconsirius-staarseeker:
Sirius-Staarseeker Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
But can you tell me who made them so I can credit them?

PkmnOriginsProject Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, right, I misunderstood. flaredragon00 made them first and I edited them significantly.

ooh i like how there are some traits you can see in the sprites that show you where other insect pokemon not included here would go, like the Yanma wings on the Beedrill anscestors and the obvious Caterpie and Metapod traits on second set of ancsestors. Although i'm curious to see how you're going to fit Venonat where it appears to go, not questioning the choice, just think it will be interesting to see the result

True, Venonat will be a bit of a challenge. It has the same basic shape as its ancestor but the features are very different.

Volcarona is a Moth, and Masquerain maybe ._.
