You can use the Sta.sh Writer application for that. As far as I know, it's not only a tool for journals ;)

I like the idea that if Relicath were to Mega Evolve, he would get a tail that could seem suited for a land-dwelling vertebrae.  Great job.

Primal Fang should be a Move tutor attack from some random guy in the museum.
It should be taught to all Fossil Pokemon + Relicanth + Other Ancient Rock Pokemon

Not sure about this one since it doesn't really bring anything new as a Mega other than better stats.

For Anchor Head, What percentage of the damage dealt is the recoil? The highest recoil moves are Brave Bird and Flare Blitz with I think 37%

Just realized that you gave this Pokemon Strong Jaw even though it doesn't have any biting moves, so I'd just stick with Rock Head. Also, may I suggest base stats? 100 HP / 130 Atk / 150 Def / 45 SpA / 95 SpA / 65 Spe.

Well, nothing really says anywhere that a Pokemon can't get new moves to suit its Mega Ability. I mean, look at Blastoise. But, those stats look alright. I'll add them in. ^^

Ampharos also gained Dragon Pulse, Heracross got a bunch of Skill Link-based moves, but then Mega Gyarados was left in the dust without any good Dark-type moves. Where's Crunch or Knock Off? Ah well, let's begin the analysis.

Relicanth @ Relicanite
Ability: Swift Swim => Strong Jaw
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Rock Polish
- Primal Fang
- Anchor Head / Waterfall
- *Ice Fang

Relicanth's Mega Evolution gave it multiple new toys, namely a slight Speed boost, which makes a Rock Polish set much more usable. After one Rock Polish, Relicanth reaches a Speed stat of 458, which is a great number, allowing it to outspeed many unboosted threats, even running circles around Mega Alakazam. Primal Fang is an amazing move, coming off of a Base 130 Attack stat with STAB and a Strong Jaw boost, as well as being 100% accurate. It can plow through many threats such as Thundurus, Mega Charizard X and Y, and Dragonite after Stealth Rock. Anchor Head is another powerful move that gives Relicanth slight recoil in favor of an equally powerful STAB to Primal Fang, and smashes Steel, Fighting, and Ground-types, such as Excadrill, Terrakion, and Landorus. Ice Fang rounds out Relicanth's coverage by dealing significant damage to many Grass-types, and receiving a Strong Jaw boost. 

Relicanth is walled by the likes of Mega Venusaur, Skarmory, and Mega Mawile, so Pokemon to take on these threats are strongly recommended. Specially Offensive Victini is an awesome partner who can break through these common physical walls with Blue Flare or (In the case of Mega Venusaur) Psychic. Similarly, Talonflame packs a deadly STAB combination to break through these threats. Ferrothorn can set up Stealth Rock and/or Spikes to allow Relicanth to OHKO or 2HKO opposing Pokemon easier. In addition, Relicanth, Victini, and Ferrothorn form a sturdy Fire/Water/Grass core together.

To ME this looks the same as a normal Relicanth.  You just added nostrils and more fins.

It would fit if Relicanth got a mega evolution.  I am a long time fan of fossil pokemon, and the mega evolution for Aerodactyl had brought me much joy, and many victories through the gym leaders and elite four.  For the other non-evolving fossil pokemon to have one would be wonderful.  That is a wonderful look for him too.  Looks intimidating.

Why not just use Strong Jaw? (Also, Clamp's not a biting move) I do like how he's based off of a Dunkleosteus, did you use the PokeCommunity's 'RELIOSTEUS' for inspiration?

Dragonith Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This was made before Strong Jaw was announced, as with the fact that Clamp isn't a biting move. And no, I did not.
