Unusual, but not inconceivable. What's the basis for evolution of 25?
Re: Numbers from your constructed language(s)?
Well, I wanted to make the numbers short and easy to pronounce, so I decided on a base50, but I couldnt think of that many numbers, so Idid a base25.

Re: Numbers from your constructed language(s)?
I may already have answered, but whatever I posted is probably out of date. Here are the Tikolmian numbers from 1 to 10 (a):
1  iso
2  mik
3  zekō
4  tiek
5  tab
6  lad
7  sobok
8  ayw
9  sas
a  mos
We use base 11. I'll be back in a little with the numbers in Conilan and Erian.

Re: Numbers from your constructed language(s)?
Here's a sample from my upcoming conlang d'Euscadia ri'tamire. Here are the number and they traditionally go from 1 to 10 (A). An example of base11 system that is. Take note that the number names are in ancient forms. I will reveal the modern names when I am making the proper thread about the language. The modern forms are similar to the ones presented here so you are not really missing anything important.

1: tulawam
2: ramsa
3: rivarsa
4: savat
5: gomersa
6: harse
7: valabo

10 (A): tu'melis
11: melis'tulawam
12: melis'tulatula
13: melis'tularam
14: melis'tularivar
Hopefully you get the idea.

Yay, someone else who uses funny prime numbers for number bases!
Just stopping by to give everyone the new Erian numbers. Or, should I say, the Llyffws numbers, as that's the name of this dialect of Erian. It's also known as "Welsh Erian", as opposed to "Irish Erian".
1  yn
2  dw
3  trei
4  catra
5  senc
6  sis
7  sep
8  yt
9  nwff
10/a  dis
Llyffws actually uses a mixedbase system. The numbers from 1 to 15 are what you'd expect from a Romance language, but the numbers from 15 to 20 are base 15looking, and after 20 I don't know what happens. All I know is that thirty is called two fifteens.

Re: Numbers from your constructed language(s)?
In Kholi, a base 5 system exists:
1  mila
2  tupa
3  xi
4  rhau
5  peta

6  pemla
7  patpa
8  pehi
9  perhau
10  tupata
11  tupatamla
12  tupatatpa
13  tupatehi
14  tupatrhau
15  xipeta
16  xipetemla
20  rhaupata
21  rhaupatamla
22  rhaupatatpa
23  rhaupatehi
24  rhaupatrhau
25  pe(t)peta
50  tupepeta
75  xipepeta
100  rhaupepeta
125, or a large number  khilou
But in my other conlang, there is a vigesimal system with subbase 10...
