These are quite interesting. How did you figure their Scientific names?
I use latin: Desumomuris, for example, means Electricmouse, if I recall correctly.
____________PON #143 – Snorlax (Amplusursus negotium)
Amplusursus negotium are large, black bears with tusks and cream fur upon their abdomen, face and hind paws. They appear to be mostly bipedal, but do occasionally walk on all fours when trying to be properly aggressive, a rare but incredibly dangerous occurrence. The aggressive stance can be seen in their evolutionary cousins, Lunaursus vitiosus, almost constantly. The reason for this stance isn’t for intimidation, where they would stand to full height, but to show they’re ready to give chase and attack their prey.
The species' average weight, according to tests, comes to 1014.1 pounds, while averaging a height of 6'11". By that logic, an average Amplusursus negotium's BMI would be 103.5.
Amplusursus negotium are known for their large mass: they constantly eat in order to store fat and sleep as often as possible to keep it, often eating 900 pounds of food. The sleeping slows their metabolism down, allowing them to survive for at least 1 month without going for more while supplying a majority of the energy into reservation fats.
A side effect of this extreme weight gain would be their extreme strength: Amplusursus negotium are incredibly strong. Averaging out the strength of the species places it at the 47th strongest non-legendary Pokémon in the country. This is due to the muscles compensating for the extreme pressure placed upon them, to prevent them being rendered immobile. While the reactions of Amplusursus negotium are relatively slow, like Pyrecanine fibula they can reach incredible top speeds when provoked into chase.
Amplusursus negotium are regarded for their varied resistances: many members of the species are able to better withstand fire and ice attacks. This resistance, however, is not because of their fat as popular belief would have you think, rather it would be the heat-resistant fur: this discovery is credited to Elm’s research into unusual abilities. As his notes read, half the Amplusursus pili populace display the same resistance, even without the presence of excessive fats: however, not all Amplusursus have the resistance, opting instead for immunity to poison. It is unknown as to why the heat resistant fur is sacrificed for the immunity, as studies are ongoing: it is believed genetics may be involved, but until confirmation is made this theory is merely that.
Amplusursus negotium have the best stomachs, even beating out the famous Piceusserpentis Family, who are regarded for their ability to live in any river no matter the pollution level and the Victusventer family, who are basically living stomachs. Because of this, they’re able to eat any food they can find, no matter how much mould has managed to accumulate upon it. Homo sapien in the regions they are native have found this worrying and refuse to leave food out, often warning new members not used to the presence of the mammal against it as well.
Of note are their claws: five on their hands and three on their feet. These claws, for some strange reason, are not utilized for attacking. Other then grabbing food, the claws aren’t used at all. It is unknown why they have these, thus it is generally assumed to be a leftover from evolution.
Amplusursus negotium are mountain bears: they prefer cold atmospheres over a warmer climate, hence their presence in the mountainous Kanto and Sinnoh regions. They may also be present in the Johto region, but there have been no recorded encounters.
Because the mountains don’t contain enough food to pacify them, Amplusursus negotium often wander down into rural areas, where they will forage for food and rest once they’ve managed to accumulate 900 pounds.
Amplusursus negotium are clearly Omnivores, eating any form of food they can find. Children opting to jump and climb upon the creature should be fairly warned to stay clear of the mouth of these creatures: they will naturally chew anything that enters their mouth, even when sleeping.
Amplusursus negotium will often be found on their own, sleeping in caves or streets. However, female Amplusursus negotium can be found active when they have cubs, watching the Amplusursus negotium protectively. It is advised not to approach an Amplusursus pili when an Amplusursus negotium is nearby: this is where scientists learned of the quadruped stance, top speeds and aggressive behaviour. The mothers will not allow the cub to leave them until the cub is two, whereupon it is automatically leaves the mothers protection and the mother goes back to sleep.
Male Amplusursus negotium, meanwhile, will always be found on their own. The only possible time to find them with another would be if they were ‘breeding’, a place you do not want to be, but are otherwise complete loners. This is for the better, as the father will usually attempt to devour the Amplusursus egg or even the live child, whereupon a fight will commence with the mother: because of the incredible protective instincts, the male is most likely to be killed in the fight and cannibalised for food. This is the likely the reason more males are hatched then females, to prevent the populous falling from less males.
Otherwise, Amplusursus negotium are usually incredibly docile. They aren’t territorial; often moving around to different caves, and will happily allow anything to climb around upon them. However, there have been recorded cases where the creatures have turned this into a ‘Victreebel trick’: they will lie upon their back and allow other creatures or even Human children to climb upon and bounce around upon themselves. Then, if the creature climbing upon it gets close to the mouth, the Amplusursus negotium will open and grab the creature in its mouth, usually devouring it whole or at least an appendage that will be chewed off. This is why children should be kept away from the mouth, if the parent is foolish enough to allow the child to bounce upon the creature in the first place.
Amplusursus pili don’t ‘evolve’ when a level of Sentioliquor is reached: instead, a good amount of Seratonin must be released. Once a certain level of Seratonin is in the body, it will react with the Sentioliquor and prompt the changes associated with ‘evolution’ into an Amplusursus negotium.
