I got challenged last night to make an alternative Magneton evolution to replace the thing that I so despise. I figure since I had recently gone on a mini-rant about constructive criticism, why not? This is the result.
(Excuse the lazy animation; I worked 6 hours on it, after which I couldn’t find the resolve to make it a smoother/fuller rotation)
I call it Magnemerge, because of merging of the bodies into bigger ones and such. It’s based off of the ferromagnetic compound iron (III) oxide, whose structure appears as follows (with Magnemerge’s parallels added beside their corresponding parts):
I wanted something that was a bit more physically connected than Magneton, which is why the center ball has the magnets ingrained into it (I guess this can also solve chrononautical-eelektross’s recent question about Magnemite breeding; the one in the middle drops off a la Exeggutor)
I do believe Magnezone has been thoroughly deposed ♥
