Fletchling, Fletchinder, & Talonflame

Fletchling is based on two closely related birds: the Japanese Robin (Erithacus akahige) and the Ryukyu Robin (Erithacus komadori), both of which are also known by the name komadori. This is even more obvious when you consider the fact that Fletchling’s species name is the “Tiny Robin Pokemon”.

Fletchling’s name most likely comes from the words fletching, fledgling, and hatchling.

At level 17, Fletchling evolves into Fletchinder. Upon evolving the Pokemon grows in size, but that’s not all. Although it retains much of the coloration inspired by the Ryukyu and Japanese Robins, its body appears to be based more upon birds of prey, such as falcons, kites, goshawks, and eagles. Consider Fletchinder’s speed as detailed in the Pokedex entry from Pokemon Y:

"The hotter the flame sac on its belly, the faster it can fly, but it takes some time to get the fire going.

With this emphasis on speed, it is even more likely that the basis for this Pokemon is the Peregrine Falcon, which is the fastest member of the animal kingdom, reaching over 200mph in a high speed dive.

Fletchinder’s name most likely comes from the words fletching, fledgling, cinder and tinder.

The final evolution of this line, Talonflame, is a larger, faster, and more powerful Pokemon than its previous stages. Here is the Pokedex entry from Pokemon Y:

"When attacking prey, it can reach speeds of up to 310 mph. It finishes its prey off with a colossal kick."

Even more emphasis is placed on Talonflame’s speed, which makes it pretty clear that the Peregrine Falcon is a huge source of inspiration for this mighty bird. Talonflame even gains some features that make it look more like the falcon. Talonflame now has red bands speckled across its underside, much like the dark brown, or black, bands on the Peregrine Falcon.

Talonflame’s name comes from the words talon, flame, and inflame.

Another interesting note is the flame markings on the body of Talonflame, which can also been seen emerging on Fletchling and Fletchinder. These markings look like flame decals that are found on some cars and motorcycles. These designs can symbolize fire (both Fletchinder and Talonflame are Fire/Flying type) as well as speed.

Another very possible piece of inspiration for all three Pokemon are arrows and their fletching.  A fletching is what stabilizes an arrow during flight, and is often made from feathers.  If you look at the design and shape of the tail-feathers of these three Pokemon, you will see that that may have been inspired by the fletching on arrows.  This would also fit well with the heavy theme of speed.

Finally getting back into making some Pokemon Origins posts!  I plan to start on some Kalos Pokemon!  Would anyone be interested in supporting me on Patreon to put out a steady stream of these? Among other things.

At TEDxYouth@Manchester, genetics researcher Dan Davis introduces the audience to compatibility genes — key players in our immune system’s functioning, and the reason why it’s so difficult to transplant organs from person to person: one’s compatibility genes must match another’s for a transplant to take.

To learn more about these fascinating genes, watch the whole talk here»

(My 65th Post… I think. I’ve lost track on my post’s number, really… ^^”)

So, guys… Did you know that Hitoshi Ariga is not just a great Rockman(Megaman)’s manga artist, but also a great fan of the series itself?

I mean, look at the pictures above.

HITOSHI ARIGA USES STUFF FROM DREAMWAVE MEGAMAN AT THE END OF ROCKMAN GIGAMIX VOLUME 3.

… Yeah, guys. I mean, look at the clothes Rock wore! … And that transform-to-Rockman(Megaman) watch! 

THIS SHOCKED ME THE FIRST TIME I SAW/NOTICED/FOUND THIS.

Hitoshi Ariga is truly a BIG Rockman(Megaman) fan and manga artist~!! (->w<-)

EDIT (1/2/2014) : THE INTERNET BEING SO MEAN! IT MADE ME UPLOAD THE WRONG PICTURES! NOW IT’S FIXED, THOUGH… ^^”

Guys! As much as I whine about how I lost my popularity, now it’s really a pitiful scream! We have trouble!

My dear buddy @policemouse-mappy is in trouble! Similar to me, they may lose their home. But unlike me, they had no luck in get their aid and find themselves in a CRITIAL ECHONOMICAL SITUATION! It’s not a might! It’s a ‘will if’ they don’t get that money! They COUNTED on that!
And without place to stay. No friends to have them over and… no mum. Her close relative has tigh echonomical situations as well, so is neither a choice. Which means my dear buddy will end in the streets. And I have had enough by sharing experiences of lack of money with them for months to have them lose like this!

The amount might be a little big, but between all, we can do it! On my side, I will do FREE art for who donates to them once my school is over (which is, by next month) in proportion to their amount.
The amount needed is around 4000 dollars.
Is specially important to get at least 1320 dollars so they CAN stay at their home.
I have not known the experience of living in the streets, but I haave/am close to it, and thus I’ve informed myself on the matters. NO GOOD. 
What’s worse, they take away their phone! This means I’ll might not be able to get in contact with them to check if I can help further!

PLEASE HELP, SHARE, OR ADVICE IF YOU HAVE FOUND A SITUATION LIKE THIS BEFORE!

When I found myself about to suffer this, they made this very same thing. and it barely worked (thanks god between the few who donated, a VERY generous person hgave a lot of money, and I had my grandma). Please, tumblr, give a little hand. If many do a little, it’ll be little effort for a BIG cause.
