Hyperboa (stage one)

Superboa's Phoenixdex Entry

I had... rather a lot of different ideas for my various regions' poké ball mimics, and narrowing down the list of concepts for Accolanto's mimics was pretty tough (I ended up going with two separate lines for the one region alone, heh... and you'll hopefully see the other ideas turning up in my other regions soon!). Superboa here looks a little more blue than red-and-white because, in the Zencalian Confederation (the nation in which most of my regions reside), the "item balls" you find can look like great balls and ultra balls in addition to the plain poké ball. "Great item balls" usually hold things like TMs rather than normal held or medicinal items, so be careful while traveling through Accolanto—that enticing item ball that you think holds the rare TM you've been dying for might just be a Superboa instead.

The name is not as uninspired as it sounds—"Super Ball" is the Japanese name for the great ball.

And yes, I know that pythons and boas are not the same kind of snake, but the "ball python" pun was too amusing to pass up. (And if Zangoose can be a "cat ferret" when a mongoose is neither of those things...)

Making a literal ball python was a clever idea. Like I said on the scorpion one, you really mixed in the great ball patterns really well.

I also recently made a snake fakemon that imitates something and attracts prey. [link]

Ball python? That is a great pun. I like this snake. I find it more endearing than any official snake Pokémon.
