This guy is a little bit controversial, it was initially thought that it was in the same genus as Eudimorphodon, and then sister to Caviramus or Peteinosaurus, but I chose to draw it as its own. Basically its a little bitty guy with multi-cusped teeth, long wings, and big feet.
By some crazy stroke of luck one Clear Alolan Night, you may have the once-in-a-lifetime pleasure to spot ghastly blue lights streaking across the sky. The Alolan Aerodactyl is still a very mysterious Pokemon to Scientists all over the World. Due to the fact that none of the eyewitness descriptions match those of the common revived Aerodactyl, some scientists believe it to be a species of Aerodactyl that never went Extinct, hiding out in the remote Jungles of Alola for Millions of years. Other scientists however aren’t fully convinced it’s even real, as no one’s been able to catch one yet.
*Flash Bang: Alolan Aerodactyl’s signature ability. If this Pokemon is stuck by a Critical Hit, it will release a bright flash of light from its body, which both causes Confusion and Harshly lowers the Speed of the opponent.
Wanted to make some adjustments to Alolan Aerodactyl. It’s now Ghost/Flying, which is probably more appropriate given Cryptids might as well be Ghosts, it has a Ghastly Glow, and it’s an Animal that should be extinct but isn’t. Its design now also looks much more different from the original Aerodactyl, taking the Crests and Wings from Nyctosaurus and the Lower Jaw of Ikrandraco.
After reading some of Mark Witton’s book PTEROSAURS, I wanted to animate a gif to show pterosaur locomotion. In his book Witton describes Dimorphodon as a reluctant flier that was very comfortable chasing small prey on four legs.
