#045 Vileplume used Petal Dance and Energy Ball!
Vileplume used Petal Dance by Naiichie
Naia from Slovenia debuted with her take on Vileplume using Petal Dance in the Game-Art-HQ community. To see her participating in this project was a big surprise since she usually drew human characters and a Pokemon fan art is till today something very rare in her big portfolio you can see here!
“A dance-like attack that lasts two to three turns. Afterwards, the attacker becomes confused”
The Petal Dance is a damage dealing Grass-Type Move and hurt the attacked opponent for 3-4 rounds in the first Generation Pokemon games but only 2-3 Rounds since Generation II.
While its base power is 70 in the classic Pokemon games, it was increased to 90 in the Gen III games and again to 120 in the Gen V games. This is a pretty powerful move, but the user will become confused afterwards.
Vileplume used Energy Ball by Nekolloco
Nekolloco is one of the youngest artists that joined our Pokémon tribute but her submissions to it looked super cute and are among the most lovely of the over 300 artworks made for it I believe.
She draws a lot other cute stuff as well which you can see in her dA gallery here
“The user draws power from nature and fires it at the foe. It may also lower the target’s Sp. Def. “
The Energy Ball is another Grass-Type Move that deals damage, but unlike the Petal Dance it was introduced a decade later, in the Generation IV games (Diamond, Pearl and Platinum)
It has a power rating of 90 and the nice side effect of lowering the opponents special defense by an amount of 10% as well. It does not affect targets with the Bulletproof ability though.
“The larger its petals, the more toxic pollen it contains. Its big head is heavy and hard to hold up”
Vileplume evolves from Gloom if it was exposed to a Leaf Stone and is one of Oddish’s two final evolutions. This Grass/Poison dual type Pokemon looks similar to a mushroom but it has little hands and feet and a face as well. They might look cute on first sight but they can produce clouds of pollen that are toxic to other Pokemon and is highly allergic to humans as well.
Like Bellsprout and Bellossom it is known as one of the Flower Pokemon
