#114 Tangela used Power Whip and Absorb!
Tangela used Power Whip by Macuarrorro
Omar from Mexico was one of the first 30 artists on board our Pokemon Tribute and we were never sure if he wouldn’t do it one more time. We were Lucky when we got his first submission, Tangela with the Power Whip, and loved his take on Muk with TOXIC …of course. His takes on Dugtrio, Magmar and finally Staryu were all great as well.
This guy loves Pokemon and Britney Spears and I hope he will Gimme More next year.

“The user violently whirls its vines or tentacles to harshly lash the foe”
The Power Whip is one of the Grass-Type Moves that were introduced in the Gen IV Pokemon games. It is a pretty strong attack with a Power rating of 120 and has no secondary effect. The first Pokemon that can learn it by levelling is Lickitung.
Tangela used Absorb by Twarda8
Karolina Twardosz from Poland joined the Pokemon Tribute after I invited her personally to this project, I think back in April or May. What she didn’t know was that she and a specific fan art she drew in February 2016 to tribute the Pokemon Anniversary was one of the reasons why we started our first Pokemon Art Collaboration!
She did a wonderful little piece with the three starters Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle in front of the Games and a Nintendo 3DS. Her dedication to this piece made us think that we should do something for the Pokemon Fan Community as well.
Twarda drew five of the Pokemon including MissingNo and I am sure we will see more from her in the Gen II Tribute next year. I recommend to visit her whole gallery on deviantART here!
“A nutrient-draining attack. The user’s HP is restored by half the damage taken by the target”
Absorb is a great move to both damage your enemy a bit and also heal yourself a little at the same time, it has a low Power rating of only 20 though.
“The whole body is swathed with wide vines that are similar to seaweed. Its vines shake as it walks”
We had Pokemon that are based on real wild animals or even humans in the first Pokemon Generation and some that look like they could be from an 80′ cartoon series or even Star Wars.
I think Tangela belongs to this selection of really weird but creative of the first 151 Pokemon.
Tangela is classified as a Grass-Type Pokemon and can evolve into Tangrowth that was introduced in Gen IV, it can usually be found in grassy plains.
