Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: What is the range on Electrify? It should not have uses based on a resource, use short/long rest like other racial traits. Parabolic Charge should use temporary hit points - remember to list duration, remove the example and add a full stop. Sand Veil requires an ability score, as per Stonecunning. Solar Power should avoid using the "per X" wording - see PHB errata. Intense sunlight and rainy weather are not 5e terms nor are they defined - I'm assuming you would mean bright sunlight? This race has several odd benefits and too many detriments, removing most or all of the detriments, altering the number of abilities(rather than benefits) the race has and having a rethink about how this compares to similar first party races would benefit the page.

Helioptile[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Helioptile are a small, yellow, quadrupedal, reptilian Pokémon that resembles a frilled lizard. They have round, blue eyes and long, thin, floppy, deep, gray, ear-like appendages with yellow, triangular tips which dangle from either side of their head. Helioptile's bodies are mainly bright yellow; their feet, the tip of their long tails and the top of their heads are deep gray. Their bodies are slinky and thin, with tiny clawed feet and a long tail. A Helioptile's head are quite large compared to it's body. The top of their round head are slightly conical in shape.

Some specimen have a tomato red color below the top half of the head.

History[edit]

These Pokémon were found in the arid regions of Kalos sunbathing in a sense. Examination of the inside of the frills on their heads show special cells that allow it to photosynthesize similar to plants. Some were shown to even take in moonlight though it seems to make less energy off of it. Further examination of their frills show that these cells are capable of converting daylight into electrical energy.

Society[edit]

Helioptiles are pack creatures and tend to not stray from the group. They typically live in deserts so as to be able to have access to sunlight. A pack of Helioptiles are lead by a Heliolisk, which makes sure that certain members of the group have roles to fulfill, such as being a scout to be on the lookout for enemies and negotiating with different races or being a scavenger for supplies and food. They are a nomadic race and tend to be on the good side of the societies that they visit and leave.

Helioptile Names[edit]

Helioptiles normally have terran names.
