The Grimer Family is a close cousin of the Pokémon, Ditto. Unlike the Ditto however, the Grimer family is highly poisonous and dangerous to be around. The thick fluid that encases this family's vital organs, is thicker and denser than water, and is designed to trap in moisture; Because of this the Grimer family does not face the same "drying-out" issue as Dittos do. The Grimer family are opportunistic scavengers that eat, drink and engulf just about everything; diets consisting of drinking mainly waste and chemicals, such as bleach. Members of this family are commonly found in toxic dump sites, landfills and sewers. For members of this family, a clean environment is a unhealthy environment. Since the Grimer family are attracted to areas of high waste output, they are commonly found in urban areas. High traces of mycotoxins are found in the genetic make-up of this family. It is highly common for handlers, or those who encounter members of this family to pick up diseases such as pneumonia.
Due to the Grimer family's sickening odor and poisonous residues, not many Pokémon actively hunt for them. The Grimer family is known live 1 of 2 lifestyles, in solitary or in a heard. Usually once a Grimer has evolved into a Muk they chose either to stay with the heard or depart. It is noted that solitary Muks are known to be more hostile and aggressive, hunting all Pokémon they encounter, even their own kind. An average Muk is known to be anywhere from 15,000lbs up to 17,000lbs. The largest Muk ever recorded was 23,000lbs.
Once a Grimer has evolved into a Muk, it will be capable of breeding. Similar to the Ditto, Muks must also merge with another Muk of the opposite sex, and preform a binary fission like act; resulting in a small pink baby Grimer of a roughly 150lbs. The Grimer family's color are known to range from light pink to dark purple. As a Muk nears death they become dryer and turn a pale grey.
Like many Pokémon that reproduce, Muk's offspring have the rare opportunity to be born in a rare coloration, or shiny. This is a specific instance where Pokémon are born with a different coloration to what is usual for its species. Many people refer to these Pokémon's condition as "Shiny", because of the fact that they tend to glimmer in direct light. For the Grimer family, a shiny offspring is born a metallic green. Viewing a shiny is extremely rare, most people on average live to only see 1 or 2 in person, if not at all.
Sorry for the long absence! School has eaten up all of my spare time, but now that school is officially done I'm free!
I would really like to receive feedback on the environments, seeing as that is the purpose of this series. The documentary info takes quite a lot of time, because I am really making most of this up based off of what info I can find on them.
P.S: Just a reminder, I post "Close Up" pics of the Pokémon featuring in the upcoming Pokémon Planet picture in my Scrap folder before the pictures comes out. So make sure you have the "Scraps" checked off if your watching me to get those sneak preview of whats to come.
