Caslot
[edit]

Pokédex

Caslot are believed to foretell, and perhaps even cause, both lucky and unlucky events. They are highly unpredictable in battle, and when their two tails start twitching back and forth almost anything can happen.

--

Some people believe that Caslot have the ability to predict earthquakes, and those who live along fault lines keep them as an early warning system. Others believe that the Pokémon themselves cause the earthquakes they "foresee".

Phoenix's Notes

Name Origin: cat + "cast lots", as in to try one's luck

Many people tend to associate black cats with bad luck and, in some cases, white cats with good luck. In other places it's white cats that are unlucky and black cats that are good omens, as white is the color of ghosts. So no matter which superstition you subscribe to, black and white Caslot is a fun little bundle of god-knows-what'll-happen. Why don't you take one on your next trip to Vegas? You could win big! Or lose your money, your house and your pants! (Is that last one lucky or unlucky? Hmm...)

Yes, Absol already touches on the black/white cat idea, but it also draws a lot of inspiration from black dogs, vaguely canine apparitions that have nothing to do with luck but instead foretell disaster. I wanted something a little sillier and more "lighthearted" than fire-and-brimstone, hurricanes-and-death Absol, and Caslot was the result. Seeing one on a bad day probably doesn't mean that Trogdor is coming down to burninate your village, but you might want to hold on to your lucky Dustley's foot and avoid ladders for a while just in case.

And before you try calling me out on the earthquake Pokédex entry or the fact that Caslot learns Magnitude, that's a reference to the actual folk belief that cats can predict earthquakes. So there.

...okay, it's really just because I wanted Caslot to have as many unpredictable moves as possible and was willing to screw logic to achieve my nefarious ends, but people really do believe that so it's almost sort of justified! Now leave me alone and let me enjoy my fun gimmick Pokémon in peace, damn you. >\
