Hmm, perhaps an elf themed pet? Like 'Santa's Helpers' themed. With green and little bells and hats for them? I'm not sure how well that would go down, but it's an idea.

Also, what about the Grinch? Once again, green themed, but mean and hates Christmas.

Or maybe even a pet with lights wrapped around it like a Christmas tree.

I love Freezair's idea of a peppermint themed snickey and the angel themed kitrell. <3

Sorry for all the 'American' holiday ideas, but that's all I can think of, I am from the US, after all. :P Also, very vague, I just thought of some quick, I hope I didn't steal anybody's ideas.  :oops:

Sometimes we just need a little reminder that we are brave and we can fly.

Oooh! Just had an idea. A Bubble Spirit in red and green colors, with one of those hanger attachments you see on Christmas ornaments at the top. It's an Ornament Spirit! :D

These lofty thoughts are killing me

Don't call me down

A ferrikoon tangled up in a bright red ribbon. Since they get in trouble a lot.

A snowflake themed fenling?

A frost themed Nyghtmare?

A Santa Claus colored Beetanke?

So uh yeah....that's all I've got.

My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god
You can have my isolation, you can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith, you can have my everything
Help me tear down my reason, help me it's your sex I can smell
Help me you make me perfect, help me become somebody else

Through every forest, above the trees
Within my stomach, scraped off my knees
I drink the honey inside your hive
You are the reason I stay alive

Since we don't often get to have Kuhnas released, save for special events, I figured that a good freebie Kuhna could be added.

Concept Kuhna
A breedable Kuhna, perhaps with Common or Preluhna (since we don't have any other Kuhna sharing the Pre) genes, that ties in with the Concept coloration of other pets. And, since most Concept pets have new and awesome poses, I would imagine that this Kuhna would appeal to users for that reason.

Minor correction to the above: the Candycorn Kuhna has Preluhna genes.

Otherwise, carry on with your concept-Kuhna-suggesting!

Soooo. RE2 asked for pet suggestions for Halloween.

I don't really have...any specific pet in mind. (Besides Felloxes) But I would like to ask for one thing: In the recent years, there has been a trend visible especially during Halloween of more and more pets being specifically holiday-themed. Which is cool and all, but I think it has been become too much. The list from last year's Halloween pets is still not online, but I remember that we had a Skeleton Teigu, a Gourd Gallizar, a ghost-like Polly, a really scary-looking Meji and yeah. The Maham was the only non-Halloween pet I remember. You can check the records from the year before - there were seven pets clearly themed towards Halloween and four that you wouldn't associate with something like that immediately. The year before (2009) there were seven pets not super-holiday-themed (for example, the Star Seraphent, the Malachite Hunter, the Misprint Corbine, the Invert Myu Reaper...) and I liked that much more. In fact, 2009 was my favourite year when it came to Halloween pets.

I think this isn't just a Halloween thing, but generally, it's more evened out during Christmas when it comes to holiday-themed pets and non-themed pets. Themed pets are always a bit of a problem, at least for me, because I find my ideas for them a bit restricted by the theme forced upon them. Also, there are people who don't like Halloween (like me) or don't even have it in their country, just like there are people who don't celebrate Christmas. Easter solves that problem really well with the retro pets so that people who don't celebrate Easter can still get something they like a lot and can find inspiration for. Halloween is the holiday where I find it the hardest. In fact, I believe I sold all my CP last year because there was simply nothing I really liked.

So yes, long text: The only thing I would really like during Halloween would be pets, no matter what species, who aren't Halloween-themed, heh. Because the other holidays can do it, toooo~

Oh yes...and no evolvers, please. Because seriously, waiting months and months and months for them to grow is so frustrating. =/ I believe the Frosted Leaflet from Christmas 2010 still hasn't grown up... so yeeeeeah. Evolvers just frustrate me.



I know my dreams are made of you
Of you and only for you
Your ocean pulls me under
Your voice tears me asunder
Love me before the last petal falls






However cold the wind and rain
I'll be there to ease your pain
However cruel the mirrors of sin
Remember beauty is found within

Actually~ The Maham was based on a demon, so it was Halloween related in its own way. xD; And the Star Seraphent was a 'cosplay' pet, since Baal based it off a character from an anime (And that anime is very Halloween-y in theme). There's also nothing that says an evolver has] to evolve. If we wanted the Frosted Leaflet could stay that way forever.

But yeah. The main reason we do theme pets is because people don't tend to give many new suggestions (And obviously we've picked all or most of the ideas so far that we've liked) and we start running out of our own ideas. Giving them a theme makes them slightly easier to think of ideas, so that's what we end up falling back to. So basically, if you guys want to see fewer theme pets, start stepping up with some ideas for us. C=

I would have never associated the Star Seraphent with Halloween because its colors are so different. Maybe that's the idea - more different color themes and not just green and orange and brown and black.

After all, it's autumn. And autumn is the season of exploding colors (just picture-google "Indian Summer" or somehting). The Crops Nyghtmare was a start in that direction, but I think with those bright colors, much more could be done.
- We need more Ptarmies, given how awesome they are, and I think they could make really nice, bright birds with all their details when colored brightly. The revamped Matches would be nice with red-orange-yellow, too (phoenix, anyone?)
- The Aries would be really nice with a sunrise/sunset theme. Autumn sunsets are beautiful! (Also, they would look good with an Aurora Borealis theme or a space nebular theme.) Sun- and Mooncheekas could also work for dawn and dusk themes (graaaadients!).
- I know we have an Autumn Leplora already, but I think there could be random ones like the Piyos, given how many colors autumn has?
- Here in Germany, we also have harvest festivals in autumn, with fireworks and all - kinda like Japan has new year where they pray for a fortunate new year. We do that in autumn for next year's harvest. It's also the time of fairs and other celebrations. Maybe a fireworks-themed pet (Aries again? Astria Florana recoloring?) Or a spiritually themed pet? (Barghests, Imeuts and other "ancient"/"ghostlike" pets would work. Basically, more like a nice, helpful ghost than the normal, scary, Halloween-ghosts. A chainless Barghest smiling nicely or something...)
- It also rains in autumn a lot sometimes and autumn rain is nice and warm. Maybe a rain-themed pet?
- It's also the time of squirrels, hedgehogs and other animals to run around and eat. Drakels and Sparquills, anyone?

(Also, maybe putting in a description if an evolver pet won't evolve would be nice? People hold onto their pets because they are waiting for it to take place. o3o)

I second everything that Shieba has said. I think she has the right idea about including the entire season of Autumn into the Halloween mix, because not everyone feels comfy with the Halloween theme. But, thinking of autumn and applying them to pets, I think would be an excellent idea.
I especially second her Aries with an Aurora Borealis theme, and her Sun- and Mooncheeka dusk/dawn ideas.

To kinda add to some of Shieba's suggestions, here are a few of my own:
- Anala - Face it. The revamp of these guys is amazing, and I could easily see fall colors going great on one of these guys. Perhaps, something focusing on a pumpkin patch. Or, just the colors of the leaves. Or, maybe a theme that somehow suggests ants harvesting for winter (the Anala is based on an ant-eater).
- Snowball - I... don't think I've ever seen these guys as something else other than a snowball. Perhaps, this guy could be brought into Autumn..? Give it autumn colors, and maybe a fall leaf on the end of its tail~
- Shartile - A fallish/Halloween theme would be perfect for these guys! I mean... they already have the skull, they'd just need some fall/Halloween colors to them.
- Matches - A theme with the new matches would be absolutely epic. They kinda have a whispy-ghost-like look, but, as Shieba said, perhaps gear it more towards a spirit, or a helpful ghost..? Casper the friendly ghost, anyone?
- Turkezilla - I mean... that should speak for itself xD I know that Thanksgiving is a month after Halloween, but still, it's in autumn, right? Again, autumn-like theme. Fall, leaves, pumpkins, red, oranges, yellows, etc. Perhaps a theme like this, or this.
Just some other pet idea that I think would be neat would be a Tengumi, Draculi, Torken, and a Penticorn. I'm trying to think of pets that haven't really been used recently, or, like the Torken, need some love~

Look into my eyes you'll see
A graveyard filled with dirt and defeat

Look into my eyes you'll see
The weight on my soul

Where the fallen angels sleep
The crooked hearts and the crossroads meet

Where the haters say my name
And carve it in stone


I'm gonna make a comeback
I'm gonna dig six feet up tonight

I'm gonna get it all back

Ooooh yes, more Analas, please. I'd also like more Taosigs! 8D

I think maybe we should also include summer a bit? We have Christmas for the winter pets and Easter for the spring ones, but summer gets kinda neglected. And fruits and all start to grow in summer anyway. I would love to have maybe a pet with the colorations of different seasons (I think cramming more than one season onto a pet is too much, probably). When I think summer and autumn together, I think of picnics, of long walks, of clear summer skies, of pretty sunsets, of red grapes and wine, of old traditional family-get-togethers, of ponds full of frogs and goldfish and kois... of so many beautiful and happy things and so little dark, spooky stuff.

But yeah. I'm not sure how others think about this, but I think we need to do more with the Evils and Purities, anyway. I mean, Dreiden is kinda like a Kalamarei anyway, right? So why can't we use the linearts of the others (except maybe those who are already Shrine demi-gods)? I could, for example, see Tou-san as a pet which would easily fit themes for all seasons and excellent as a harvest pet if recolored.

If those aren't an option, I must say that Shrewdie's random-custom Chombones with a meadow painted onto its feet was awesome. We could do that to some other pet with all seasons! Not sure which one (probably one which gives a bit of space to do so), though, but maybe something like the Leplora, where we already have a spring and winter one and one custom autumn one. Or something like that. (I'm rambling and brainstorming and writing lotsa crap because of that.)

Since Rebel posted pictures as well...these are some autumn pictures I love: 1, 2, 3

I guess my reply to Draiz would be... I'm not a big fan of the blatant seasonal colours. Or well, more specifically, any addons. Like the pumpkin heads and stuff. If it would be easier... If you guys feel you're not getting good suggestions maybe you could continue to do what you guys are doing for the random custom event that's going on right now? Just... maybe look around google images for whatever suits your fancy and make from there (or whatever your individual process is)?

I'd much prefer seeing a pet that might have a pokemon/digimon/random-bird-with-arms(idk)/random image twist to it than the more blatant seasonal. It's less easily placed and and thus categorized, and then forgotten that way. People will make of it whatever they want. That's sort of my feeling on that.

As far as Holiday themed pets, I will say that I normally actually really like them. Especially Halloween, because it happens to be my favorite holiday. Just like there are some people that can't do much with "creepy," pets, their are equally users that thrive on them. However, I do agree that a range of styles would be good. I honestly liked Halloween '08 and '10 the most, and they both had a reasonable variation between somewhat creepy and then not. (Though, I'm not a big fan of pumpkin heads either, since we already have two pets with them.)

My suggestion, for Halloween themed pets, would be varities of candies used for inspirtaion. Since candy is seemingly one of the most important things as far as Americanized Halloween goes, and they can come in a crazy varity of colors, which would mean less... "dark," pets. The possibilities for candies are endless from rainbow lollipops and cotton candy, to caramel and chocolate nougat.

Another option would be to look into Day of the Dead things, because they often have vibrant, more colorful decorations and such things, which I think would be really neat. (I know we already have two limited pets based on this, but I think the options are endless.) Plus, a few like this may be good for the Seasonal Wild pets.

I suggest some Samhain themed pets this. It's a pagan holiday that eventually became Halloween. It was a celtic holiday so maybe some autumny celtic pets? :U That and I thrive on dark evil pets so I say keep at least one. I can't do happy happy joy joy pets. They kinda make me sick.

So yes a nice mixture and I say keep the theme pets because quite frankly I live for Halloween. I literally count down the days for it and spend a lot of my time preparing for it. So yes a few "nice" pets btu keep the creepy! I need creepy to live! (not really but yes I love it) Like the dalmas, they were "bad" pets but they weren't creepy.

As for new themes mayeb some Oktober Fest themed pets? I love Oktober fest now that I'm able to celebrate it(sober). But harvest and leaf themed pets. Like a leaf patterned dalma! Or a pet with a leaf pile add-on!

So when it comes to non-holiday and non-themed pets, where my Gruss, Yonyuu and Florana  a step in the right direction or? I refrained from doing anything 'themed' as much as I could, and.. well. Did I cater or did I fail? Is that.. the sort of style you wanted? They are... themed, as such though. I sort of went with an Easter/Nature approach with them. But tried to deviate away from anything too restricting.
I know what you mean though. I feel the same way about such pets. :'U
Also, you'll never see any evolvers from me and if you do, they'll either be fully evolved or you'll have to use the shop to evolve them or something. :I Because of the nature of my events... wouldn't really work with evolving pets. xD But yeah.
Suggestions are good and nice, thank you for taking the time to put some forward. :D

I think it was a step in the right direction. I really need to get my hands on that gruss, haha. The Yonyuu was another of my faves. Florana isn't my favorite pet but I do like the colours and stuff. If it was a pet I was more into I'd have been all over it, in all likelihood.
