As it turned out the other 7yo's pre-soaked pea (near the green stick) hadn't "drownded", it had just been taking its sweet time sprouting.

After Pokemon Go was officially released (with some very agonising teething problems), one of the other field testers/admins of the Western Australian Pokemon Go community I'd made the wapogologo for said it would be cool if there was a similar logo with the legendary birds (who are the official mascots for the three teams).  So I made one using the same colour schemes as the eeveelutions.

Next up, team logos/patches.
