It is... y'know... an ear. But if you wanna get less technical, as I just said, metaphorical description--compare it to a feather, if you like, or something to that extent of shape. I'm sure there are better ones. And giving a sense of how big this ear-crest-thing is can be useful, also--choose something that mentions it being on the... vague plane of a rhododendron leaf, as opposed to the size of Sneasel's head, or the size of a bumblebee.
thegalleonman: (4:11:12 PM) Hey, wha'd you mean by:
thegalleonman: (4:11:15 PM) "Your number one aide in describing Pokemon: Size comparisons and irrelevant metaphors."?
ojajrrj: (4:11:47 PM) ...Probably a bit vague.
ojajrrj: (4:11:54 PM) I tried to rant
ojajrrj: (4:11:57 PM) but the thing timed out
ojajrrj: (4:12:02 PM) and that's the only sentence I still had. XD
thegalleonman: (4:12:12 PM) Ahaha.
thegalleonman: (4:12:20 PM) WELL, EXPLAIN IT MORE TO ME.
thegalleonman: (4:12:27 PM) ACTIVATE YOUR RANT POWERS.
thegalleonman: (4:12:33 PM) GOGOGOG
thegalleonman: (4:12:35 PM) O
ojajrrj: (4:13:06 PM) Pokemon work better if you don't describe individual parts literally with a head-to-foot analyzation.
ojajrrj: (4:13:12 PM) Well, everything works better like that
ojajrrj: (4:13:16 PM) but Pokemon in particular
ojajrrj: (4:13:19 PM) are more effective if
ojajrrj: (4:13:27 PM) say you're describing
ojajrrj: (4:13:33 PM) Koffing
thegalleonman: (4:13:40 PM) Uh-huh.
ojajrrj: (4:13:48 PM) My rant skills are off today
ojajrrj: (4:13:50 PM) I'm sick
ojajrrj: (4:13:52 PM) but anyway
ojajrrj: (4:13:53 PM) Koffing
ojajrrj: (4:13:55 PM) instead of "three big floating balls"
thegalleonman: (4:13:56 PM) XD
ojajrrj: (4:14:11 PM) and then specifics on the attributes
ojajrrj: (4:14:29 PM) of their forms
ojajrrj: (4:14:40 PM) a more abstractified metaphor like
ojajrrj: (4:14:41 PM) um
ojajrrj: (4:14:44 PM) ...
ojajrrj: (4:14:48 PM) I can't think of one right now.
ojajrrj: (4:14:48 PM) ._.
thegalleonman: (4:15:04 PM) "PURPLE DUMB BELLS WITH MOUTHS"?
ojajrrj: (4:15:12 PM) Something like that. XD
thegalleonman: (4:15:20 PM) WAHA, YES.
ojajrrj: (4:15:31 PM) Mixed with sporadic literal explanations.
thegalleonman: (4:15:47 PM) Hmm.
thegalleonman: (4:15:55 PM) Yeah, I didn't get all that from your sentence. XD
ojajrrj: (4:16:02 PM) ....
ojajrrj: (4:16:06 PM) Yeah
Because my answer was incredibly vague.
