disclaimer: Scolipede is my favorite Bug type, but i didn’t want to draw him again or use the same artwork, so i drew my second favorite Bug type instead.
i’m not exactly sure what Escavalier is supposed to be, to be honest. he evolves from a beetle thing, then he gets Shelmet’s armor and evolves into a knight-beetle thing, presumably? but his name references snails, but he doesn’t really look like a snail sans the swirly part of his shell. whatever he is, i find him really cool. i’ve also used him competitively to minor success, though that was in RU and i soon abandoned that tier for UU, which was much more fun to play for me. there’s no reason why he wouldn’t be viable in UU, though.
