Paraceps-Pokemon concept by xXLightsourceXx Paraceps-Pokemon concept by xXLightsourceXx
This is a concept drawing of a possible evolution of a Parasect... just for fun I tried to go a little crazy with this concept, the basic idea is that the mushroom growing on Parasect takes the life of the insect, grows monstrously and becomes basically a puppeteer ghost/grass Pokemon. The poor insect now hangs around motionless except when doing the bidding of the Mushroom.

I know this idea could not fit in the Pokemon universe because it's a little dark, but I though it would be fun.

The name comes from the fungus named "Cordyceps" that attacks different kinds of insects and arthropods.

why would it be happy while a mushroom was eating its brain?

this is really cool, but incredibly grim at the same time.

I imagine this thing in X and Y. It's animations would just consist of the mushroom moving back in forth while the body is flung around. Anyways, this is not to dark for Pokemon. We've all seen some of the other Pokemon....*cough* Litwick's evolutionary line is the equivalent of the Grim Reaper *cough*

Spooky! Though the description sounds more like a Ghost/Poison typing would make more sense.

How would it evolve from Parasect?

I think if would fit to pokemon.
A little dark you say, but have you seen the Parasect pokedex entry ?
"The bug host is drained of energy by the mushrooms on its back. They appear to do all the thinking. "(Yellow)
"When nothing's left to extract from the bug, the mushrooms on its back leave spores on the bug's egg."(Crystal)
The thing get more creep if you look to what Paras says in pokemon mistery dungeons: "The mushrooms on my back are my friends!"(HP:51>100%).

And still there others creepy/evil pokemons like the evolution lines of: Drifloon, Litwick, Jellycent. And what you would say about a Doll whose hate gave life to it and who is seeking the child who throw it away?
Your entry to Paraceps is perfectly fit, I have total conviction that.

I watched KBMadhouse's Top 15 most Disturbing Pokemon a while ago and recalled seeing this.

I always found both Parasector and Paraceps to be amazing concepts and at times wished they were in the games. I mean face it, Paras and Parasect aren't really the best in terms of typing and stats and could really use some help.
Seriously I see no reason why they shouldn't be in the game, they look very legit. By far one of my personal favorite fanmade Pokemon ever. :+fav:

Looks like a Misdriavus fucked a Parasect.

Abilities would be Effect Spore (If it was the ability prior to evolution), or Levitate(If Dry Skin was the ability prior to evolution)

I don't know man, Pokemon is pretty dark when you look just under the surface. Aren't Ghastlies supposed to be the restless souls of dead Pokemon? And Cubone wears its mother's skull as a helmet.
Therazan Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012
I never ever had any respect for Paras and Parasect before... but now that i've seen your vision of these Pokémon, all the stuff with the mushroom on their back, and what they could have been... now I respect them. Make more, all of your Pokémon concepts are way better than anything they are currently making right now!
17chrisjenkins Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, would not work in Pokemon...but still, very beast looking!!!
ChromaColors Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2011

CMD-NEYO Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010

dont i wish
Jetavian Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2010
That is freaking amazing! Definitly your best pokemon evo/pre evo you've made, I love it! The design and backround are amazing, and I honestly wish it was a real pokemon in the games. Keep up the amazing work!

Your ideas are ingenious and fun!

I loved Parasector but Paraceps is a great concept, especially how it becomes part ghost and can float like a big spore :o
Chelarda Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Holy crap, I think I peed my pants a little from reading your description. That design right there is so flipping awesome, it's definately one of the best I've seen, along with your Parasector, heck once my holidays come up I might draw some fanart because that right there is a great idea for an evolution, I'm super impressed, well done!
xXLightsourceXx Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
thanks. I wanted to make a hardcore Pokemon...I also liked the idea that in this version it's not the insect anymore it's the mushroom that acts though the insect.
Chelarda Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Awesome awesome idea :thumbsup:
Prinny-Dood Featured By Owner May 23, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
