Updated Dragon Ancestry by PkmnOriginsProject Updated Dragon Ancestry by PkmnOriginsProject
Here is the updated Dragon Ancestry, with sprites by me, :iconpokemonsparrow: and :iconweredrago2:

I made some small modifications to their sprites to better fit into the tree, ie adding claws to their feet.

But, Raqyquaza is one of the Gods. I don't think he'd be at the end of the tree... Oh well.

Personally, I'm kinda confused about Salamence. Across multiple games, its Pokédex entries state that the wings resulted from Bagon's yearning for flight, so that trait must be relatively new(approx. 750K years).

charizard is a confusing topic. it can learn and use dragon type moves and looks like a dragon, but it's a flying and fire type

Well, since it now has a Mega evolution with the Dragon type, it's not really a problem any more. But its possible for a Pokemon to be related to other Pokemon of another type anyway. Types must change sometimes due to mutations.

Interesting theory, but if you submit at all to it, you can work Cubone into the line too.

Well, no, I don't buy that theory lol... It's well thought out, sure. But I think it's really simple. The legend that Cubone wears the skull of its dead mother is just a legend. The skull is just a part of its body. The Pokedex is chock full of unreliable folklore.

gyarados are dragon type :/

No they aren't...? Gyarados is Water/Flying type, and it's with the fish Pokemon because Magikarp is evidently a fish.

Gyrados is as much dragon type as Charizard. 
It comes from the legend of carp that leap over the rainbow to become a dragon. 
the only reason its not a dragon type in game is because water/dragon was way too OP in gen 1

I'm sure you can shoehorn the Gible and Axew lines somewhere, maybe at the beginning.

PkmnOriginsProject Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Axew certainly belongs here, yes. Personally I think Gible should be related to Sharpedo, but not many people have agreed with me so it will probably end up in this tree too. We have more up to date versions of the reptilian tree if you are interested in seeing them.

Well, I recommend checking out our even bigger and better dragon pokemon tree! There are even more awesome pokemon there. My personal favourite here is probably the Drudiggon/Salamence pokemon ^^

I think if there was a little more color transition between the dragonite sprite and the set above it. The red is just to solid to seem that it would change that fast you know? It's just a little to solid to change like that. I think that a good color transition can make A HUGE difference ^-^ well thats just my opinion on it.
Good luck on the rest of the family trees! You guys are doing a great job.

:iconpkmnoriginsproject:
PkmnOriginsProject Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
There is intended to be more transitionals in between, like most of my trees. The most important part is showing all the common ancestors. Personally the part of this tree that bugs me is Rayquaza, I think he should be more ancient.

I agree with you. It looks a bit weird to me.
Maybe add like some rings on the green serpent's body and some horns on the face?

:iconpkmnoriginsproject:

I'm going to put it in a completely different spot in the tree, probably, so it will need a completely new sprite, not just remodeling.

[Redbox left] the white fur from the top of the head fills out the neck(probably to keep warm) as well as a tail sprouting to help maintain balance.. volcanic mountainside? black coloured soot and rocks would favour darker fur colourations leading to the next lineage.
[Redbox right] ok this is a tough one... Front legs turn into wings, so you could use batlike wings or the such, something both leg and wing. whereas 2 "head stalks" grow out of the shoulderblades, allowing more air intake, therefore, more oxygen in higher altitudes. heads wouldn't be fully dev yet but would be like shoulder tentacle things...

Just my idea, You've probably already got them figured out anyway

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. I appreciate you want to help too, but please note that telling us our trees are "wrong" is not really helping. You can give suggestions and opinions but when you state your opinion about how a Pokémon should be related as a fact, it gets annoying. There is no real facts about this because Nintendo doesn't have an official pokemon tree of life.

question: do your evo trees involve fossil pokemon? because Aerodactyl will fit branching off from the evo line that turns into the charizard line (it would be early and it would condense so that the pre-evos are eliminated.)

Just saying.

I didn't plan to put Aerodactyl there, but it certainly could.
