Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

True Heights & Weights vs. Pokedex
    When you look up a pokemon on a pokedex site or search, you'll notice that they have a height and weight listed. While this is accurate, it often does not match the anime or manga's depiction of that pokemon. Thanks to one of our mods who asked Nintendo itself, we now know that these measurements are measurements as if the pokemon had only just hatched.

    For Harper, I will expand on this and state that for evolutions, the official measurements are the size the pokemon is immediately after it evolves, and that pokemon will continue to grow throughout their lives. While some pokemon will naturally become bigger than others, the pokemon's sizes will remain relative. For example, a ten-year-old staraptor would not be the same size as a ten-year-old onix, although both would continue to grow.

    Main Points
    • Pokedex ht/wt is the starting average
    • Pokemon continue to grow throughout their lives, some more slowly than others

Harper Modifications
    On Harper, however, we also like to be realistic whenever possible and give a good nod to the biology of corresponding species! It follows then that sexual dimorphism on Harper more closely mirrors that of animals in real life. For example, a female spider pokemon will be several times larger than a male of equal health and age. This applies to numerous species of pokemon each in different ways. Mods will portray it where they can and where they know to, but players are welcome to expand on differing sizes and even on general trends such as a female bird pokemon's colors being potentially more or less bright than the male counterparts where appropriate!
