Arctovish would have a happier existence than most Galarian "fossils", for its two halves possess surprisingly compatible lifestyles, body plans, and even colors, were it not for one flaw; its neck bone is positioned in such a way that the head can only be attached by turning it upside-down. For wiser paleontologists, this would be cause to abandon this reconstruction; for Galar's, it was an occasion to ponder how a creature could have survived despite this disability.

Arctovish do not have as hard a time as one might naively imagine with eating; it is inefficient and involves far more maneuvering than evolution would ever create, but the ocean is a 3-dimensional space. The placement of their eyes fixes their gaze constantly upward, leaving these pokemon nearly as blind as a Zubat. Left to their own devices, they swim beneath the surface of the water, hoping a fish comes directly into their narrow field of vision; with the rest of their body irrelevant, they must rely on their bite to hunt.

On land, Arctovish doubly struggle, for all they can see are flying pokemon, and Arctovish for obvious reasons can not participate in Sky Battles. Yet humans revive them anyway, and not only so they can find a twisted outlet for their caretaker instincts in the form of half-blind, misshapen pets; the ice and water attacks which these pokemon rely on are so wide-ranging that they need not actually locate their target. That said, should a foe wander too close to both their mouth and their field of vision, an Arctovish's bite can knock out even the bulkiest of foes.

How strong must Arctovish's bite (and Dracovish's) have been when attached to the correct body? What fearsome aquatic predator did science fail to revive?
