BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Castigyan is a worm-like Pokemon that resembles a Spiny Elm Caterpillar. It body is mainly orange, but along its body are many white rings which resemble bones. Also various hard thorns Protrude from its exoskeleton. At the end of its tail is a sickle-like claw which looks as though it is made of bone.

As their body is storing up energy for its time as a Achorno they eat ravenously.

Special abilitiesEdit

A Castigyan prefers to avoid combat whenever possible and as such is relatively fast for a Bug-Type and has skill in camoflague. They often pretend to play dead, a course of action which is made more effect by its bone-like appearance. Then once its foe has lost its focus in it, the Castigyan uses its speed to make its escape.

HabitatEdit

It lives in forests, particularly the amoung the leaf-litter for camouflage.

BehaviorEdit

They will often work in small groups, making their camoflague as bones more believable. They will generally move through the leaf-litter searching for the bases of tasty plants and drink their sap. If hungry they will drink the sap of most trees, and stop caring about taste.

Castigyan care about their survival more than anything else. If any of the group sees a predator they will pretend to be dead immediately, leaving the others to either notice their fellow is playing dead and follow suit or not notice and be attacked by the predator.

DietEdit

Castigyan are herbivores with a ravenous hunger. They drink sap from the bases of trees, generally not caring about taste unless it is no longer hungry. Castigyan favour the sap from willow trees over all others.
