I don't like the fact that girafarig is so short in the game. I think it's an error in design on Nintendo's part. Also, I think with the change he seems more realistic and a much more formidable creature. It's also asthetically pleasing and gave me some artistic freedom with interpretation without ruining the "feel" of the actual pokemon. I also took some liberties with Crustle in creating a male/female. Most of the included material is taken from the Pokedex but I have tried to make it "real" without crushing most of the "facts". I hope that makes sense.
I love Pokemon! I am currently working on my National Dex in Pokemon White. I am at 548 of 644!! I want to possibly breed a triple or doubles battle team for the Championships!! ... That's a lot of "!" marks. LOL
