    Pokémon constellation project

    Post by Ospreyeagle on Thu Jan 17, 2013 8:36 pm

    Welcome to the Pokémon constellation project!
    There are 88 constellations in the sky. Here is a list. I will be adding more and more, so check back or I'll bug you to death.

    Anyway, they're Pokémon for Antarcticiss, my made-up region. It's why most of them are ice and flying (as well as star) types, so don't bug me about that. Seriously.

    Name:Andromeda

    Type: Star/Ground
    Description: Andromeda is a mythological character, the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia. She was chained to the rocks because of her mother’s boastfulness. Cepheus, the king went to an oracle. The oracle said she had to be sacrificed to the sea monster, Cetus. She was chained to the rocks but was rescued by Perseus, who turned Cetus into stone by showing it the head of Medusa (Stars and Planets, pg. 132). I’m not sure why I used Linoone as a base for her. I'm not sure why I put an alpha symbol on her at first, but she is the first constellation when put in ABC order.
    Pokedex: Said to be a counterpart to Linoone, because of her shape. She has an Alpha symbol on her right side.

    Antlia

    Type: Star/Flying
    Description: Antlia is an air pump. It was added in the 18th century to occupy an empty area in the sky.

    Apus
    Type: Star/Flying
    Description: Apus is a bird-of-paradise. Birds-of-paradise, when first collected, had no feet. It is also a genus of swifts, birds with really small feet.
    Possible candidate: ???

    Type: Star/Water
    Description: Aquarius is water carrier. He is also a part of the zodiac, which are stars that travel along the sun's path.
    Possible candidate: Blastoise? It does have two cannons on its back.

    Aquila
    Type: Star/Flying

    Type: Star/Psychic
    Description: Boötes is a herdsman. It contains the fourth brightest star in the sky, Arcturus. Boötes is one of forty-eight of Ptolemy’s constellations. I decided to make it part psychic since he is a herdsman.
