Type: Lightning brain/robot
Okay yes ha ha “dat ass” very funny be quiet. Robert saw me drawing this one and was so confused. “Where did the turtle go?” he asked. “It turned into a brain and transformed its exo-suit into a robot body,” I replied, “it made sense when I was eight.”
In terms of predicting things Pokémon would later do, there’s an example at the back of the book of “Mutation”, where a Geometrical Creature can temporarily assume a more powerful form of either good or evil. Five Generations later, Pokémon would introduce Mega Evolution. Datas -> Medidatas is the example given for Evil Mutation, although other than the Evil Element, I don’t know how to tell which Geometrical Creatures Mutate either evilly or… good-ly, or even at all.
When Toytos start integrating computer elements into their exoskeletons, they can leave their corporeal bodies behind and become Datas.
Beings of cold, logical thought, Datas can often be found hiding in large computer laboratories, camouflaging themselves motionlessly in dark corners amongst cables using their coiling arms. If they are discovered, they have been known to suddenly slash at computer scientists with their razor sharp fingers.
Nobody knows what they are stealing all that computing power to process.
