Koffing Scientific Name: Pestilus Venemusphere levitas
Koffing is a Pokemon that was originally made in a factory after a few years of design development. It was originally designed to take the toxins out of the air that many factories were creating. As it took in the toxins of the surrounding area that were air-borne, Koffing was seen as a good product. As such, almost every factory at the time bought several. They later found out that while it took in toxins, it also released some. It was still not seen as so bad an investment, though, as they made for good security and their food source was the toxins constantly in the air. Some escaped by floating off, though, and began to mass produce in areas they favored.
Koffing has an interesting process of life, as it has many traits that are very rare. It has a balloon body that is filled with chambers full of gases. It has valves across the outside of its body that leads from the gas chambers inside its body. These valves disperse the gases in its body. Its mouth is a chamber through which the toxins go into the body. The eyes are actually chambers with special filters to only allow certain gases to enter. The eyes are actually more like a gauge, as one stays at the same level the other is at. If the body is full of gases, the eyes are at the top of the chambers. If there is a regular amount, the eyes are in the middle. If the eyes are at the bottom of the chamber, there is a very small amount of gases in the body. The gases do not escape the eye chambers, because there is a gassy film that is clear which covers the outside of the sockets. The skull and crossbones were designed to warn of its type, but also to warn of what kind of abilities are useable due to the amount of certain types of gases. If they are yellow, the Koffing has a healthy amount of every gas in its main chambers. If white, the top valve excretes a gas that can be used to heal many ailments. If red, observe with caution, as the gases are highly flammable and very explosive. If green, the gases that are excreted are extremely poisonous. The change in color is visible since the skull and crossbones area is thinner and so is clearer. The body of this Pokemon is purple due to the thickness of the layers, and because the material is made highly of a mixture of several gases. Reproduction of this Pokemon occurs in two ways: When the gases of a male Koffing and a female Koffing come together, a small, new Koffing is formed. In the case of a Koffing exploding, the gases and materials eventually come together and, after about a year, form the Koffing along with another due to the addition of toxins and gases over time. Koffing has thoughts, emotions, and movement due to the gases that are in the main chamber. When anything new is experienced in the gases, this information is chemically stored in the lining of the material that makes up a Koffing's body. Koffing explodes when it over expands, due to oxygen coming into contact with the chemicals that make up the interior of its body. Due to its large relationship with gases, this Pokemon is associated with some Ghost-type Pokemon.
