Blopa1987 is actually a Game-Art-HQ member since the first hour and was featured in our Anniversary Tribute of the Kirby series back in 2012 already and contributed some very fine submissions to our other art projects as well.

But beside them he also build up a very impressive portfolio that includes a lot of video game fan art, especially for the Kirby and Mega Man games on dA, I absolutely recommend to visit it here and watch him if you are a member on deviantART.

The Fire Spin is a damage dealing Fire-Type move that is available since the first generation of Pokémon games. It is a powerful move that does not only deal raw damage in one round but also adds Fire Damage for the following 2-5 turns so it is especially good against opponents with a lot HP. The damage this move deals and also some fo the side effects were altered with in every new generation of Pokémon games up to Gen VI.

Sometimes a Pokémon has no time (or is not even in the right mood) to use one of the elemental skills that require focus and concentration, and well..sometimes they just don’t know how to use them yet . The Scratch move is one of the right choices at such a time and the small Charmander was among the first Pokémon that could use this simple physical attack move.

“Even the newborns have flaming tails. Unfamiliar with fire, babies are said to accidentally burn themselves”

The Charmander is one of the three starter Pokémon alongside Bulbasaur and Squirtle in the classic Gen I games and evolves into Charmeleon from around level 16. It is the first Fire-type Pokémon in the Pokédex. The flame on its tail can actually be used as an indication to see how healthy this Pokémon is.
