    If you guys haven't noticed, Dex Entries for Pokémon in the Zeralis Pokédex are typically incredibly lackluster and outdated. I'm looking to get at least two decent Dex Entries for each Pokémon, but I need your help.

    I need people to create Dex Entries for almost every Pokémon in the Zeralis and Glitch Dexes (for the moment), and there are only a few rules.

    1. Each Dex Entry can be two sentences at maximum. Keep them concise, and don't go over the top with colorful language.
    2. Avoid legendary Pokémon if you do not know their history or plot relevance.
    3. Please don't make every Dex Entry you do similar (i.e. every psychic predator having something about how they creatively hunt with their abilities). This makes the Pokémon incredibly boring, so get creative.
    4. Be realistic when designing Dex Entries. Don't compare Tottem to a speed boat or anything.
    5. Dex Entries are not automatically accepted. They will be reviewed by me and any Grail members who wish to have an input.

    Other than that, Dex Entries are up to you. You can make up myths, behaviors, etc. for your favorite Zeralis/Glitch Pokémon. Go crazy kids.

    So how should we go about submitting these dex entries? Just post 'em here or what?

    Brizaur: "They are extremely rare, mainly due to hunting as their scales are worth top dollar values to the right buyer. They are a protected species as a result of not being strong enough to defend their selves."

    Silvazur: "Solitary creatures who primarily live in mountain crags. They collect anything shiny that they find, and decorate their caverns with loot."

    Karozur: "Nigh-indestructible, they usually dominate an entire mountain range and hollow out the interior. Their lairs typically house an ocean of gold, gems, and treasure from the digging and from taking from anyone who dares to enter their domains."

    Tottem: "They are found inside of temples where they assign themselves to a single room each. They guard these rooms as a sport, with each outsider turned another mark of status."

    Tototem: "Each layer is actually fixed to the same brain, simply acting as three 'heads' on the same being. As such, their facial expressions are all the same at all times."

    Totower: "They are said to have at first been built by ancient people of Zeralis as magical guardians of villages. They remain lifeless where they stand until they see an intruder, with each layer facing a different cardinal direction."

    Tyook: "An isolated Pokemon that has been reported to wander streets at night and climb into windows, looking for a home. The noises it makes when alone have been said to sound like a crying child."

    Morterror: "Despite appearances and folk tales, wild Morterror are quite docile and passive in nature. Records show that Morterror attacks are usually after the loss of a loved one, when the grief and heartache becomes too much for it to cope with."

    Emblit: "It wanders deep caverns, searching for anything that looks fun to it. While it occasionally causes people trouble, it means no harm."

    Emblight: "Its powers grow stronger the deeper in the earth it is. It's said to prey only upon those deserving of a terrible fate."

    Lumik: "Naturally curious Pokemon, they have a habit of getting very close to anything they don't know. However, they are easily startled, and most new things cause them to jump and defensively freeze their surroundings."

    Luminost: "They are almost invisible while in the snow or in the sky, gliding along both with speed and grace. Some travelers who get stuck outdoors during blizzards report these Pokemon flying them to shelter."

    Oh cool these are still here.
    Floradon's fans are said to be made of special herbs, which can be turned into full plants if put in the ground.

    Jungon are sometimes used as helpers on farms, due to their affinity for gardening. They fight enemies with a swift gust of wind from their fins.

    Verdon can make plants grow by simply being in range of them, and can even use this ability for combat. They sometimes help Floradon evolve by speeding their growth.

    Dingrowl's howls pierce the night, the sound often alerting prey of their arrival.

    Thylere are vicious Pokemon, using a combination of poisoned bite and sting to take out most any Pokemon.

    Marobi are often kept as pets by humans, due to their impressive colors and elegant swimming style.

    Callinet can daze opponents by showing off their wonderous colors, and finish them off with water attacks while they're distracted.

    Verline may look cute, but don't underestimate them! They can grow up fast, and a Verdeguar is never far from their baby.

    Verdeguar are usually feral hunters, but are sometimes known to become wise and powerful if introduced to a certain stone.

    Leef can almost perfectly disguise as ordinary leaves, hiding from bigger Pokemon.

    Bigleef hops expertly between branches, appearing as though wind has swept branches. If you see branches blowing but don't feel the wind, it's probably Bigleef running from predators.

    Bugsaw have evolved full sawblades on their backs, and can use them with frightening precision.

    Calura mimic human thoughts, as opposed to speech. A trained telepath can sense random thoughts and emotions, picked up from Calura sensing a human's thoughts.

    Aeolura have focused their abilities, and can be used for investigation purposes, as they pick up the thoughts of people around them and can spit them back out with ease.

    Kindai are friendly to trainers, and warm them up with their hug. If they get excited, they might burn their trainer instead!

    Ailaze fur is extremely good at keeping warmth inside, and powers its fire moves this way. If an Ailaze gives you shed fur, you can make the coziest blankets with it.

    Mininja are masters of stealth, due to their small size. Some refuse to evolve just so they can sneak around more effectively, but they can't fight as well until they do.

    Midoninja trade their small size for combat abilities, but prefer not to kill. They can disarm foes with a single swipe.

    Kushinobi are such masters of stealth that they can turn invisible with just a thought, and some don't even cast shadows. They know many fighting techniques, as well.

    Tricetra's helmets are so hard, they can headbutt solid rock and not feel a thing. This is their primary combat strategy, as well.

    Triocca's entire head has turned to stone, and can break diamond with a single knock of their head.

    Petimite hang from cave cielings, falling on unsuspecting prey. Some are confident enough to hide on the floors of caves, attacking with ruthless effeciency.

    Stalaclaw's spikes are extremely sharp. Their secret? They erode them by dipping them in water when they sleep, so the water erodes all but the sharp tip.

    Sarusk scavenge for food every night, and if they're caught they can either run away extremely quickly or fight back with their sharp thinking and subtle techniques.

    Saroscent give up their subtle fighting strategy for brute force, often intimidating other Pokemon out of their food or possessions. They've been nicknamed "The Bully Pokemon" for this reason.

    Sarovore are so intimidating, most Pokemon give them things willingly to avoid their wrath.

    Taroxin are highly venomous, so it is wise to avoid them. Trainers who partner with them find that they're quite friendly, however.

    Sauroxic are so venomous, their poison can kill a Donphan with but a drop. They rarely do this, however.

    Cumos were created by scientists, hoping to study atoms. Some say that we're all made up of over 7 billion tiny Cumos!

    Agmos are living replicas of silver atoms, and can use their electrical properties in combat.

    Aumos can utilize all of the properties of atoms, including phasing through matter and teleporting.

    Explomb are quite literally living bombs, and can explode without dying. If they faint, they might explode anyway, so handle them with care.

    Nuclomb's explosions have the power of a small nuclear explosion, and are devastating to opponents.

    Zentaur are said to have come from the stars, and know the mysteries of life. If they do, they haven't told anyone yet.

    Zagitarius gather around once a year, and everyone born at that time is said to have the traits of a Zagitarius, vibrant and inquisitive.

    Tarakin: Instead of laying eggs, it lays seeds. It sprouts up with the appearance of an ordinary pumpkin until halloween night, where they finally come alive and prey upon anything that ventures into their pumpkin patch.

    Tarantasm: It spins huge webs in dark forests out of pumpkin vines coated in a sticky residue which can hold prey weighing up to a few hundred pounds. When they die, they leave behind nought but the jack-o-lanterns on their backs, and their souls simply vanish into the night.

    UFO: Theories on its origins are extremely varied. Some think it was genetically built by the government, others think it simply evolved over millions of years to look like a spaceship, while yet others think it truly is an alien.

    Exterrestre: On some starry nights, there are reports of Exterrestre hovering in the sky, dispatching several UFO in different directions, then warping away after they return. Conspiracy theorists believe that this behavior is them gathering information for a war on humanity.

    Menipenny: Despite their cute appearance, Menipenny are viciously greedy, consuming and hoarding anything valuable that enters their sight. Their power is directly proportional to the amount of wealth contained inside of them, which will never leave the inside of the Pokemon.

    I'm going to be doing some quality control (which I will post upon completion). This is mostly fixing awkward english and removing unnecessary language.

    Furthermore...

    This is not happening, so I am placing a 150 character limit on Dex Entries. Trying to cram a ton into two sentences makes these messy; keep it simple.

    Brizaur: Focusing on too many ideas. I chopped off the illegal hunting bit (may be better suited to a second dex entry), and split the first sentence into two parts.
    "Due to hunting, they are extremely rare. A single scale is worth a small fortune."

    Silvazur: Mostly good. Rearranged the second sentence to cut down on the wordiness.
    "Solitary creatures who primarily live in mountain crags. Their caverns are decorated with shiny objects they have collected."

    Karozur: Way too many ideas bouncing around in this one. I took the ideas that have the best flow, and tried to stick with those.
    "Karozur hollow out entire mountain ranges for their lairs so they have enough space to store their oceans of treasure."

    Tottem: Good, but awkward sentence structuring.
    "Each one is assigned to guard a single room in a temple. A Tottem that has turned many intruders has a high social standing."

    Tototem: Good, but needlessly wordy.
    "Tottem's three heads are controlled by a single brain. As such, their facial expressions are always the same"

    Totower: Too wordy.
    "Ancient guardians of Zeralian villages, they remain lifeless until they see an intruder. Each head faces a different cardinal direction."

    Tyook: The first sentence has a lot of ideas and that makes it too wordy.
    "It has been reported to climb into windows at night, looking for a home. The noises it makes when alone sound like a crying child."

    Morterror: I can't outright reject things, but Morterror is the personification of vengeance from abandonment. Outside of my personal vendetta, it's too long. I trimmed a bit that could be considered excess, but each sentence could probably just be it's own entry.
    "Despite folklore, Morterror are quite docile and passive in nature. Attacks are usually after the loss of a loved one, when the grief overwhelms it."

    Emblit: Pretty good, but rephrased the first sentence for better flow.
    "It wanders deep caverns, always looking to entertain itself. While it occasionally causes trouble, it means no harm."

    Emblight: Good, but did some rephrasing.
    "It grows more powerful the deeper underground it goes. It preys upon those deserving of a terrible fate."

    Ah, thanks for cleaning those up! I think those look much better. Sorry, I'm not the best at wording.

    Siron: They primarily feed on kelp. While eating, they wrap their tails around the kelp stalks, and eat from the base of the stalk up.

    Serince: They gently drift across warm currents in pairs. Some cultures say that seeing a couple of Serince will bring you good luck.

    Seregal: Royalty among sea creatures, divers have observed them seemingly commanding scores of other ocean life.

    Hierark: They swim through desert sand, usually around ancient ruins. If you see several flowing quicksand pits outside a temple, it's likely several hungry Hierark.

    Sharoglyph: As they grow bigger, more glyphs appear on their bodies. Some think that these marks form a phrase, but nobody can translate the glyphs to know for sure.
