would you want a wolf Pokemon and should it evolve at night only? How would you make a wolf Pokemon?
Well, it would make a sort of sense to have one in the generation calling its games “Sun” and “Moon,” wouldn’t it? Given the general symbolism of wolves as lunar animals in European folklore, anyway. Then again, I think the themes that would be my go-to ideas for a wolf Pokémon have been ‘done’ elsewhere – like, Zoroark already kinda works as a ‘werewolf’ Pokémon despite being a fox and not a wolf because of its powers of darkness and ability to appear as a human, and Mightyena already deals with the teamwork theme that would be inspired by wolves’ pack hunting skills, despite being a hyena and not a wolf. That’s not to say you couldn’t still do one, just that I’d probably try to go with something a lot more offbeat, like these guys. I’m not sure off the top of my head what I would go with.
