Koffing are strange airborne chordates with a highly variable appearance. Body cavity is mostly hollow, occupied primarily by a large botryoidal mass of hydrogen-filled gas bladders and a cavernous pharynx densely latticed with mucous webbing for collecting atmospheric particulates. Feed exclusively on pollutants, only existing in the most crowded population centers where the air is foul enough to sustain them. They’d be valuable as natural filtration systems if the gaseous waste they produce constantly in massive quantities wasn’t as/even more toxic than the material they consume.
Cellulose exoskeleton like cartilage in flexibility & strength. Tumorous cellular composition, despite being a naturally brainless meat balloon it’s extremely common for their epidermal layer to grow hair, teeth, even functional mammalian eyes, though they are incapable of interpreting the visual data gathered. The unblinking, glassy gaze and impression of a readable facial expression created by the various surface lumps has led to the common misconception that they’re aware of their piteous existence and suffering. More than a few people have lost limbs or even died in blasts caused by deliberately puncturing koffing and weezing as to ‘put them out of their misery’. In reality it’s unsure whether or not they are even truly sentient. Those who don’t heavily anthropomorphize them usually see them as little more than very dangerous plastic bags.
Rarely a koffing may develop brain tissue within it’s visceral mass. Such individuals, while being more likely to develop into weezing, are no less prone to suddenly and violently exploding at the slightest stress.
Weezing are much more stable than their smaller juvenile form, but also much, much rarer. Weezing may form as the end result of the fusion of several koffing, or of a spontaneous growth spurt in older koffing. As the pokémon ages it’s genetic structure becomes increasingly unstable and more likely to ‘evolve’ into it’s adult form.
Reproduction is spore/pollen based.
The cancerous nature of their tissue, its constant growth and self-mending, means they’re capable of living indefinitely, given they avoid spontaneous combustion. A complete enough fragment of an exploded specimen (whether koff or weez) has the potential to develop into a clone koffing of it’s ‘parent’.
Pigmented dull shades of gray, purple, blue, or, in exceptionally rare instances, green. Eyes can be any color, but are usually brown.
Been working on this for a few days now and I just finished. I’d meant to do something last year for the 20th Anniversary but I just never got around to it. Growing up I really loved Team Rocket, they were the best part of the anime. I haven’t kept up with the show since - I think I stopped watching during the Johto series, so series 2 or 3? - but doing some research the Trio have managed to capture some interesting Pokémon over the 20 year run of the show - or at least befriend some. I hope I didn’t miss any. I know James bought a Magikarp and Jessie caught a Shelder but I wanted to focus on the ones that hung around.
the 10 yrs time skip where they meet up in coincidence? things are different now, not more play time like old times, something serious to deal? after quietly enjoying the accompany of each other uu
this is just a part and i want to at least get one done ;;, with the mood in Kyoto aa, I will finish up the rest with BG scene ver when i get home and maybe additional ideas of how this festival goes ;;
