Another fun plant pokemon to make into a race. There aren't too many references, but here's where they are:

Prickly-Needles and Reinforced Needles are both from Maractus's cards in the TCG expansions Flashfire and Dragons Exalted respectively. Prickly-Needles was originally going to grant Maractus the ability to take the Tiefling's "Barbed Hide" feat, since I thought it would be perfect for a cactus, but scrapped the idea since a cactus always has it's spikes exposed, whereas a Tiefling with barbed hide needs to use bonus action to do so.

The line in Society about warning people to not hug maractus is based on this picture which would have been the original image for the page, but it's flower petals were not the normal color so I went with the current picture. --MetalShadowOverlord (talk) 01:13, 26 March 2019 (MDT)
