#018 Pidgeot used Whirlwind and Aerial Ace!
Pidgeot used Whirlwind by Shinragod
Shinragod is a part of the Game-Art-HQ community and since 206 also one of the Admins in the GA-HQ Group on deviantART and decides together with 6 others which submissions are getting accepted or declined.
He participated in multiple of our art collaborations in the last years, his take on Pidgeot is only one of six Pokémon he drew for this project.
“Generates a powerful wind that blows away wild Pokémon. Useful in the wild only”
The Whirlwind was a pretty unusual move in the first Pokémon games and was used to end a battle with a wild Pokémon abruptly.
The move got buffed up in Gen II and now forced the opponent to switch places with another random Pokémon from its trainers party. It deals no damage at all and also does not reduce any stats of the targets.
Pidgeot used Aerial Ace by 13alrog
13alrog joined GA-HQ recently as well and our Pokémon Tribute was the main reason I guess. but he also participated in our July 2016 Art Challenge with a take on Vega (Balrog in Japan btw.) in his design from Street Fighter V.
The theme of this challenge was to draw video games that were released this year. Beside Pidgeot, he also drew Kakuna, Hitmonlee and Butterfree for our Project already. I recommend to visit his gallery on dA as well which you can find here.
“The user confounds the target with speed, then slashes. This attack never misses”
The Aerial Ace was introduced in the Gen III games in 2002 and is a damage-dealing Flying-type move that bypasses any accuracy checks.
It can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles since Gen V.
“This Pokémon flies at Mach 2 speed, seeking prey. Its large talons are feared as wicked weapons”
Pidgeot is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon and the final form of the small Pidgey. It has large wings, large talons and can use powerful attacks like the Hurricane and the Air Slash alongside the moves illustrated above. Since Gen VI it can evolve into mega Pidgeot if a Pidgeotite is used.
