Sableye Evolutions by scythemantis Sableye Evolutions by scythemantis
Alright, so I don't normally do fan art and suchlike, but there was an issue that I needed to remedy here. Many, many people have come up with their own made-up evolutions for the Pokemon, Sableye, one of my personal favorites. NONE that I have seen make any reference to Sableye's actual *basis,* an alleged alien visitor nicknamed the Hopkinsville Goblin: [link]

These "goblins" were reported in Kentucky, but very popular in Japan, where they've made more than one anime or video game appearance.

Thus, if Sableye ever evolved, I feel it ought to be into some OTHER "real" alien, like the Flatwoods monster (left) or Mothman (right) both of which are also very famous in Japan.

Most fan-made Sableye evolutions turn it into some kind of dragon or demon, which leads me to believe that the artists are unaware of his alien heritage :(

Sableye copyright nintendo! Without further ado:

PHOSPHOREYE - the Looming Pokemon - Ghost/Dark
"It blinds opponents with intense shining light from its crystals. The one on its chest is technically a third eye."

NUCLIEYE - the Dimensional Pokemon - Ghost/Dark
"Emits burning radiation from its entire body. It is said to appear where terrible disaster is imminent."

Awesome! Although I really like it, I dont like the concept of a Sableye evolution, because it might bring my favorite pokemon design to ruin. Sorry bout that, but then again, your art is amazing, and I hope you continue to do so

I have no other way to describe Phosphoreye except PERFECT!

Phosphoreye reminds me of Fawful...

I saw these fakes a long time ago, and I'm still a huge fan of both of them. The thought that went into making these designs, the evolutions of an already cryptid-based monster, was great, and both of the cryptids you chose made for great evolutions to the pokemon. Love 'em both, still have mad respect for these fakes.

aw thanks!
Papermachei Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2014  Student
Haha, don't mention it. I've been drawing and admiring fakemon forever, and that's still one of my favorite design sets. Would love to see more in the future. :)

Baby I like it
CommanderBrad Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
I would pay Game Freak to make this happen.  And I would use both of them no matter how awful their stats.  I am not a fan of fan created Pokemon, but this is amazing.
scythemantis Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks! I don't draw my own pokemon very often, though I do think about a lot of things I'd want to see them do.

 Every generation, they've come out with a few more of my dream concepts, even highly specific ones like a garbage creature or a pokemon made up of barnacles, so maybe gamefreak thinks a little like I do and a Mothman and/or Flatwoods monster might happen one day. :)

The Phosphoreye is extremely unnerving....

So creepy, I love it!
RWcomix Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013  Student Filmographer
I love the idea behind these fakemon! Really interesting take on it, going the cryptid route instead of the goblin route like lots of fakemon artists seem to take.
Orionide5 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013
Excellent idea! But I think the Flatwoods should be called SPHALEREYE (sphalerite is a sulfurous-smelling gemstone) and have green eyes, and the Mothman should be called FLUOREYE (fluorite is a mineral can glow under UV light) and have red eyes.

I always enjoyed the Hopkinsville Goblins history.

I wish Sableye could evolve into your cool new forms. Mothman form should be a bit taller in the face.

RocketDerek Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012
Yes! Love it. All Sableye evos you see are just bigger versions of it or something. These are perfect! Before I saw the mothman picture I thought Nuclieye was suppose to represent one of the possible explanations for the Hopkinsville goblins being an owl. Great either way. Good job!
scythemantis Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
All three of these aliens/monsters have been chalked up to owls, funny enough.

But what if they're owls...FROM SPACE?
agray06 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
This is awesome! I never noticed it before, but Sableye does look like the Hopkinsville Goblins. Plus, I love Mothman and the Flatwoods Monster. BTW, creatures that look like the Flatwoods Monster show up in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

"Hopkinsville Goblin..." Som tongue twister detected?

Interesting ideas!
oprichniki1 Featured By Owner May 25, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
OH my god !!! This is incredible !!

I never knew about the alien origins of sableye before, which is really cool to know about. Also seeing evolutions into my 2 favorite cryptids monsters is even cooler !!!

Great job !!!
