#047 Parasect used Spore and Slash!
Parasect used Spore by freqrexy
Bev Wooff / Freqrexy from the United Kingdom creates art since 13 years already and joined our Pokemon Tribute as one of the first artists in May already. In the end she contributed not less than seven of the 151 Pokemon for it, starting with Chansey and Parasect, up to Koffing, Seel and Golem and eventually Golem, Jynx and Magnemite which was one of the last 10 Pokemon drawn for this project.
You can see a lot of drawn art but also crafted items and even cosplay in her gallery here!
“The user scatters bursts of spores that induce sleep. “
Spore is a basic move that from Generations I through II always ensured that the target affected by it would be put to sleep. Yet it has lost some of its power over the years such as in Generations III to V where Pokemon with the Insomnia or Vital spirit can avoid it all together. And as of Generation VI, all Grass-Type Pokemon are immune to it.
Parasect used Slash by TheExileKing
Ross Jones aka TheExileKing is one of the many artists that participated for the first time in a Game-Art-HQ Collaboration Project when he heard about our Pokemon Tribute. I liked his style to draw them with traditional tools like Pencils and the sketchy look makes his three takes on Golbat, Parasect and Koffing quite unique among the 300 illustrations.
I recommend to have a look at his gallery here!
“The target is attacked with a slash of claws or blades. Critical hits land more easily.”
Slash is a rather common move found amongst a great deal of Pokemon. With a hit rate of 100% and a power stat of 70, it is a hard-hitting Normal-Type move that can inflict critical damage more easily. Most Pokemon who possess sharp claws have or can learn this move.
“The bug host is drained of energy by the mushrooms on its back. They appear to do all the thinking”
Parasect is the evolved form of Paris. As the name suggests, the Pokemon appears to be a host to the parasitic fungus growing out of its back. Evolution of this Pokemon begins at Level 24.
Like many dual type Pokemon; Parasect’s Grass/Bug Type abilities cause it to inflict many status effects on its opponents. Most notably it uses Sleep and Paralysis type moves; which can make it a very irritating foe to deal with if a trainer comes ill prepared/equipped to ward off such ailments.
