#095 Onix used Bind and Iron Tail!
Onix used Bind by metalzoa17
Paris Jenkins from the USA draws great video game fan art since years already and joined our Pokemon Gen I Tribute in May already with Onix using Bind and a bit later Golem with the unique Explosion move. Her third and last entry was Electabuzz using Thunder.
Have a look at her whole gallery on dA here!
“Traps and squeezes the target over several turns. The target cannot move while under attack.”
Bind is a Normal-Type Move and was introduced in Generation I. It immobilizes the opponent for 2 to 5 turns dealing light damage in the process. This also prevents the opponent from switching out to another Pokemon. However, it was made possible to attack during the move in Generation II and beyond. Also, a target can now escape Bind from Generation III and beyond if they have the Run Away ability or possesses a Smoke Bomb.

“Slams the foe with a hard tail. It may also lower Defense.”
Iron Tail is Steel-Type Move and was introduced in Generation II. It was used as TM Move TM23. It hits an opponent with a hardened tail that has a 30% chance of lowering the opponent’s defense.
“As it grows, the stone portions of its body harden to become similar to a diamond, but colored black”
Onix is Rock/Ground-Type Pokemon that has become fairly iconic due to being one of Brock’s main Pokemon in both the games and the anime. It’s appearance is that of a large snake with boulders for a segmented body. it evolves into Steelix when traded holding a Metal Coat.
It grows larger the more objects it absorbs around it. It also has an internal compass built within thanks to the magnetic properties of its brain. In the Wild they are generally fierce as they are capable of tunneling underground at fantastic speeds of 50 MPH; causing tremors and earthquakes all while providing a terrifying roar that can be heard miles away.
