#112 Rhydon used Rock Slide and Surf!
Rhydon used Rock Slide by Franjo Gutierrez
Francisco Gutierrez from Spain is a part of the FGE & Game-Art-HQ Community since years and participated mostly in projects that were related to fighting games so his claim to take Rhydon back in May already was pretty surprising!
I recommend to have a look at his whole gallery on dA here.
“A Rock-type attack that hits the target with an avalanche of rocks and boulders”
Rock Slide is one of the damage dealing Rock-Type moves since Gen I, it has also a 30% of inflicting Flinch to the enemy since Gen II. Since Gen III it can also hit adjacent Pokemon in Double or Tripple matches.
Rhydon used Surf by Kenisu-of-Dragons
Kenisu-of-Dragons from the United States came across our Pokemon Tribute in July 2016 and liked the idea to draw a Pokemon performing one of its moves. In the end he drew not only Kadabra and Rhydon but also picked Mewtwo’s 2nd spot quickly! You can see his whole gallery here.
“It swamps the entire battlefield with a giant wave. It can also be used to cross water”
Surf is a damage dealing Water-Type Pokémon attack which had no side effects in the Gen I & II games but is also hitting allies since Gen IV and attacks all opposing Pokémon in Double and Tripple matches. The Surf move can also be used to travel over the water.
“Protected by an armor-like hide, it can survive in lava over 3,600 degrees. Its horn can bore holes through boulders”
The first evolution of Rhyhorn, Rhydon is doubling the height and weight and looks more like a Dinosaur than a Rhinoceros now. It can be one of the strongest of the first 151 Pokemon if used wisely.
