#106 Hitmonlee used High Jump Kick and Blaze Kick!
Hitmonlee used High Jump Kick by 13alrog
13alrog joined GA-HQ recently as well and our Pokémon Tribute was the main reason I guess. but he also participated in our July 2016 Art Challenge with a take on Vega (Balrog in Japan btw.) in his design from Street Fighter V. The theme of this challenge was to draw video games that were released this year. Beside Metapod, he also drew Butterfree, Hitmonlee and Pidgeot for our Project already.
I recommend to visit his gallery on dA as well which you can find here.
“The target is attacked with a knee kick from a jump. If it misses, the user is hurt instead”
The High Jump Kick was introduced in Gen I. already as one of the fighting-type moves. It deals damage of course and while it can miss (Its accuracy is 90%) it has a quite high power stat of 130 now since Gen VI. The High Jump Kick has no effect if used against Ghost-Type Pokemon and will always fail against them. The user recives a 1HP crash damage.
Hitmonlee used Blaze Kick by Dreamgate-Gad
Dreamgate-Gad from Peru is one of the most active Game-Art-HQ Contributors now since around two years and started with a really unpopular character from the Final Fight games for one of our fighting game related projects and participated in almost all later art activites, our Pokémon Tribute however got his full dedication, today in September 2016 he drew already nine of the 151 lovely beasts! The Caterpie was the 2nd Pokémon he drew for this project.
You can see his whole gallery on dA here!
“A kick with a high critical-hit ratio. May cause a burn”
As a fighting game player I wonder if this move was inspired by Joe Higashi’s (Fatal Fury, King of Fighter’s) Tiger Kick that looks similar to the Blaze Kick.
This move is one of the Fire-Type ones and debuted in the Generation III Pokemon games. It has a 10% chance of inflicting burn beside dealing damage with a rating of 85.
“When in a hurry, its legs lengthen progressively. It runs smoothly with extra long, loping strides”
Hitmonlee is a Fighting-Type Pokemon through and through and knows a lot of moves that would make a fight with Sagat from Street Fighter or Bruce from Tekken probably a lot of fun! His name is also a tribute to fighting legend Bruce Lee.
It evolves from Tyrogue that was debuting in Gen II. There are no female Hitmonlee’s btw.
