#075 Graveler used Rock Throw and Earthquake!
Graveler used Rock Throw by Savven
Savannah Mclean came out of nowhere to claim the first Graveler spot which is currently the only video game related art in her gallery on deviantART. I know absolutely nothing about this mysterious being and wonder if we will see more of her when we continue with gen II next year.
“A Rock-type attack. As the name implies, a huge boulder is dropped on the target”
The Rock Throw is a Rock-Type move that deals damage without any additional effects. It had only a quite low accuracy of 65% in the first Gen Pokemon games. This changed since Gen II when the accuracy was buffed up to 95%.
Graveler used Earthquake by MuddyTiger
MuddyTiger joined Game-Art-HQ this year and debuted with her take on Arbok which looked a lot more realistic and intimidating than the original design. After that one she drew Machoke and eventually also Blastoise, Graveler is her last one in the Gen I Tribute but I am pretty sure she will be back for more in 2017 when we will continue with Generation II!
“The user sets off an earthquake that hits all the Pokémon in the battle.”
Earthquake is a powerful Ground-Type move that deals damage to all non-Flying-Type Pokemon. It has always been acquired through all Generations as TM26.
Both the Power and the Accuracy of this move are at the max number of 100. Hence why the PP is only 10. Any opponent using Dig that is hit with this move will most likely receive double the amount of damage by it.
“Rolls down slopes to move. It rolls over any obstacle without slowing or changing its direction”
When a Geodude reaches level 25 it might evolve into this being called a Graveler. This is the second Rock/Ground type Pokemon in the Pokedex and has no legs but can float around actually. They eat rocks.
