earth palette


had a dream where it was revealed that there’d be new free dlc for pokemon sun and moon, which not only added a new postgame plotline and extra battle tree trainers, but a bunch of new pokemon and forms for existing pokemon as well.

a ton of the new forms were like… “ancient forms”, though the only one i can remember is “ancient passimian” which looked like oranguru but frillier and with an old-timey, earth palette. more interestingly was this, which i thought was a new mewtwo form but was actually its own pokemon, called “xeritwo”.

i remember going onto bogleech’s pokemon reviews to see what he thought of these new reveals, and he actually posted the leaked origin of xeritwo, which was that it was a living psychic manifestation of mew’s fear of its own clone. i also remember him saying that he found the design somewhat lackluster at first, and then it revealed its second appearance. he didn’t give it a rating, though, because he decided to hold off on that until the dlc was released to ensure he knew everything important to know before passing a final judgement on it.

i couldn’t tell if the red growths on it were meant to be gemstones, eyes, blisters, or bizarre external organs. they were very shiny, and pulsed in and out of its body rhythmically, like a heartbeat. most people were theorizing it’d be either psychic/dark, pure psychic, pure dark, or bring back the ???-type

i woke up to realize that the sun/moon credits theme were playing in my earbuds from my ipad, and with a surprisingly clear memory of what xeritwo looked like.

@bogleech unfortunately, because that dlc is never going to come out in this reality, if you want to rate it you’ll have to do it without the dlc


Next batch of palette swap weirdness. Why do Kinosaki’s colors look so good on everyone? The usual bonus below, eyes of a dead fish indeed.
