Truth or D...eath. by Ommin202 Truth or D...eath. by Ommin202
This is a regular ol' pokemon lesson, not a life lesson. It was also a request from ~Feare909. The idea was that the Regi family of pokemon were based on the Hebrew legend of the Golems. At first I found conflicting evidence (and I wanted to avoid anything religious if I could help it) but the more I looked, the more it seemed to make sense. The only golem I know is from Diablo and I didn't think they could be related. But then I read a description of them, and one of the original golems was clay (just like out of Diablo). They are often made out of very strange materials, and the descriptions of each of the 'lesser' Regis talks about what weird material they are made of, so it all lines up pretty well, I think.

The title of this one is based on the idea that the Hebrew word for "Truth" was written on their heads to make them come alive. By erasing one letter, the word became "Dead" and they would turn off.

(As a note, I enjoy doing requests if I think it will work well. It could be as simple as a pokemon you want to see or a phrase you'd like incorporated, or it could be a whole poster that you can imagine but just not create. I want to include you!)

Might I suggest maybe using an alternate Registeel sprite?

Not bad. Though I may still have to explain it to him.
