#121 Starmie used Hydro Pump and Light Screen!
Starmie used Hydro Pump by Nekolloco
Nekolloco is one of the youngest artists that joined our Pokémon tribute but her submissions to it looked super cute and are among the most lovely of the over 300 artworks made for it I believe.
She draws a lot other cute stuff as well which you can see in her dA gallery here
“The foe is blasted by a huge volume of water launched under great pressure”
Hydro Pump is a strong damage dealing Water-Type attack with no side effects at all. It is one of the strongest Water-Type attacks in general
Starmie used Light Screen by SuperEdco
Eric DeSantis is not only a very active part of our community but also the artist behind the Logo for our Pokemon Tribute, the Website and many other art collaborations, he participated in Link’s Blacklist as well as in our fighting game related projects and is one of the guys behind the Rockabilly Beatdown game.
Beside the logo, Eric was the first who claimed one of the two Magikarp spots and later also took Kabuto and Starmie when we searched for artists to take the last available Gen I Pokemon.
I recommend you to have a look at his gallery on dA which is full of gems to discover!
“A wondrous wall of light is put up to suppress damage from special attacks for five turns.”
Light Screen is a defensive Non-Attacking Psychic Move introduced in Generation I. It is found as TM Move TM16 in Generation III and beyond.
It’s primarily used to reduce the damage received from opposing Special Attacks for five turns. The effects of this defensive move have varied from generation to generation. The five turns rule wasn’t applied until Generation II and by Generation III it halves the damage received by the user rather than double the Special Defense stats of the user from Generation I.
“Its central core glows with the seven colors of the rainbow. Some people value the core as a gem”
Starmie is Staryu evolved when exposed to a Water Stone. Just like Staryu, it is also associated with Misty in the Pokemon anime. But it is not an evolved form of Misty’s Staryu; and she prefers her Staryu for being attached to it for so long.
Also like Staryu, its core will lose its luster when it starts to weaken. Perhaps most amazing of all is the fact that the spinning of its back can produce electrical pulses so great they can reach the “furthest parts of the universe.” (How the heck did they figure out THAT?)
