#022 Fearow used Whirlwind and Drill Peck!
Fearow used Whirlwind by Yggdrassal
Yggdrassal from the United States is an active part of the Game-Art-HQ Community since around two years and contributed a good couple of video game artworks that are about games that are rarely getting any attention now.
He participated with a Timesplitters 3 entry as example and Rocket: Robots on Wheels as part of our Nintendo 64 Tribute this year. He joined the Pokémon Tribute with Dodrio in the first May week already and drew seven more of the little Gen I creatures. I recommend to check out his gallery where you can see a lot more video game fan art including more Pokémon love as well.
“A powerful wind that blows the target away. The opposing trainer must use a new Pokémon”
The Whirlwind is one of the most strategical moves 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.
Fearow used Drill Peck by Christos “Cilios” Pittas
Christos Pittas from Greece was one of the last artists that joined our Pokémon tribute before the last 30 spots were taken. Like many other artists before, he also started to become a part of our community with this project while he drew a lot Pokémon related fan art before.
His take on Fearow was his first submission, he continued with a truly unique take on Poliwhirl. Have a look at his gallery on dA here!
“A corkscrewing attack with the sharp beak acting as a drill”
The Drill Peck is a damage-dealing Flying-type move without any side effects.
Only 5 Pokémon from the first Generation could learn it with Spearow being the first in the Pokédex. Today there are still only eight Pokémon that can learn the Drill Peck. Three more can use it through breeding. It is also the Special Move of Skarmory.
“A Pokémon that dates back many years. If it senses danger, it flies high and away, instantly”
Fearow is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon that evolves from Spearrow when it is at around level 20. This bird-like Pokémon can fly for an entire day has sharp talons and a dangerous long beak. They can be found in wastelands and desolate fields.
