Tivoli the Tyrant by purplekecleon Tivoli the Tyrant by purplekecleon
Tivoli the Tyrant - a fierce Tyranitar who's destroyed his way to the top of the food chain in the Prismatic Jungle. He has some... very persuasive ways with dragon-type Pokemon. He resides in an abandoned temple. Everyone refers to him as the dictator of the land behind his back. He prefers the term "emperor."

Ribbons the Larvitar - Tivoli's only daughter and his pride. He's very protective of her, as such. She's the only shining Pokemon in the entire Prismatic Jungle (probably due to Tivoli eliminating any beauty competition as far as shinies go...).

Larvitars and Tyranitars... Such lovable species! I wonder... Will Ribbons still look that special when she evolves to Pupitar? I bet so!

How long was Tivoli in charge of the jungle? Also, does the draconicello effect dragons even if they are deaf?

Jill mentions that he can control dinosaur like Pokemon too. Does that include ancient Pokemon like Kabuto or Pokemon that are roughly considered dinosaurs like Chikorita, Bulbasaur, and Tropius. I wonder if Gyarados is considered dragon esque.

Pk I love your NPCs!!! It's so interesting how you use a large variety of pokemon for you NPCs. With each having distinct personalities! It really brings PMD to life,seeing that your not only using the pokemon you favor. I'd like to ask do you come up with these NPCs on your own or do people suggest them to you through artwork or comments? If so,could I share an idea for NPCs?
Dent the Stoutand: Dent is basically a Mary-Sue. He has three different degrees. One in Psychology and two others in Astronomy and Biology. A few years ago he decided to settle in Tao village with his son Fall the Lillipup (I'm not good at making names obviously). He believes Fall will become a master at psychology. Putting some pressure on Fall... Anyways, Dent currently tries to help pokemon with mental illnesses,disorders,or any psychological problem. But,he usually spends his time trying to help Fall with his own problems. Thus,he has to do his businesses at his home. He's also secretly very prideful about his success. He occasionally quietly notes other pokemons' flaws to himself.
Fall the Lillipup: Fall is Dent's envious and easily frightened son. His dad's success often bring fears to Fall that he will not be as successful. Fall has a mental illness of his own,causing Stoutland to have to give Fall therapy. Thus,making Dent barely have any time to treat any money paying patients. Even though he has an illness Fall had to study Psychology at a young age. He's the counselor of the business, usually helping with conflicts and negative emotions between Pokemon. But,he feels alot of pity for himself and usually starts rambling about his own problems in the middle of a session. He enjoys walking around Tao village away from other pokemon viewing the scenery. Like his father he also likes noting pokemons flaws to himself.
So those are some ideas that I had. If you don't take NPC suggestions through comments I extremely apologize and you can just skip the whole thing. Anyways,I love your art style and the fantastic ideas that PMD comes up with! It really brings the guide to life it makes it more exciting then the actual games! Now all you need is some powerful final boss and an ending that'll make everyone cry! I can't wait too see the nest NPCs that you guys create!

Huh...Tivoli reminds me of a character I made up in Event 2. Emperor Slowking, who lives in a ruined temple and used to be the leader of all Water types, hence the Emperor bit.

...Certainly not intentional, but cool to see something close to it realized in NPC form.

Can't wait to see how the two come into play later on!
