Lickitung used Lick by Illusionary-Illumi
Julie from Belgium joined the Pokemon Tribute in May already and quickly claimed the first spots for Lickitung and Seel, later she also contributed one of the two Taurus illustrations! I liked her cute style to draw the Pokemons a lot, you can see a lot more of that here!
“Licks with a long tongue to injure. May also paralyze.”
Lick is a Ghost-Type Move and was introduced in Generation I. It is famously associated with Haunter to which the effects of performing the move vary depending on the game or anime. The move itself inflicts damage and has a 30% chance of inflicting Paralysis on the opponent.
As it is a Ghost-Type move; other Ghost-Type and Normal-Type Pokemon are not affected by it.
Lickitung used Body Slam by TheFredricus
Fredrika is one of the few Swedish artists that joined our first Pokemon collaboration and she was fast to claim both Gastly and Lickitung in May already!
“A Normal-type attack. Has a one-in-three chance of paralyzing the target if it hits.“
Body Slam is a Normal-Type attack move introduced in Generation I as TM Move TM08.
The user uses its massive bulk to slam into the opponent. The biggest pay-off of this move is the chance of the user Paralyzing its opponent. There is a 30% chance of this happening.
“Its tongue can be extended like a chameleon’s. It leaves a tingling sensation when it licks enemies”
The strange Lickitung was a standalone Pokemon until Gen IV. when it could evolve into the even weirder Licklicky. While it is weird, it is classified as a Normal-type Pokemon.
Lickitung can use its giant tongue like a weapon for some moves but also knows tricks like Supersonic or the always respected Defense Curl.
