Eevee used Swift by scowlingelf
Scowlingelf is a part of Game-Art-HQ’s community since around three years now and contributed a handful of illustrations for the big Link’s Blacklist project but also participated in other art collaborations and drew Jade from Beyond Good and Evil among other game characters.
Scowlingelf was also one of the first that joined our Pokemon Tribute and claimed Eevee, Dugtrio and drew finally the cutest take on Rapidash I have ever seen. Have a look at Scowlingelf’s whole gallery here!
“Sprays star-shaped rays that never miss.”
Swift is a Normal-Type move introduced in Generation I, and was TM Move TM39 in Generations I and II. It has moderate power and hits the opponent with 100% accuracy. In Generation I it could even hit opponents in the otherwise invulnerable stages of the Dig and Fly moves. But in Generation II and onward, the move could no longer affect those in Dig and Fly.
Eevee used Quick Attack by Bernuviel
Bernuviel from Switzerland joined the Pokémon Tribute with her take on the cute Eevee back in May already and continued with Bellsprout and finally the Defense Curl using Sandshrew. She draws a ton of different stuff, including more video game art as well, I recommend to have a look at her gallery on dA here!
“An attack that always strikes first. If both Pokémon use this, the one with higher Speed attacks first.”
Quick Attack is a Normal-Type move introduced in Generation I. It is very familiar to anyone who has played Pokemon games as a huge number of Pokemon obtain this move in the earlier part of their development. It’s high PP rate and moderate damage it deals easily replaces Tackle as the initial Normal-Type battle move. It certainly has gotten many players through the earlier parts of the game and leveling up their Pokemon faster. If both player and opponent has this move, the one with the highest speed stats will always go first.
“Its genetic code is unstable, so it could evolve in a variety of ways. There are only a few alive”
Arguably one of the cutest Pokemon next to Pikachu, Eevee is a brown furred Normal-Type Pokemon. Appearing part rabbit and part fox, it is a highly sought after Pokemon; which in earlier Generations (I-IV) was usually only obtained through Trade.
The most noteworthy aspect of Eevee is its ability to evolve into eight different Pokemon Types thus far: Water, Fire, Electric, Psychic, Dark, Grass, Ice and Fairy Types. The conditions to evolve it into any of these types vary. In Generation I; it was only possible to evolve one using either a Fire, Thunder or Water Stone. These would in turn create a Flareon, Jolteon or Vaporeon.
Further conditions for its evolutions were introduced in Generations II-VI.In Generation II, High friendship during the day evolved it into an Espeon; while at night an Umbreon. In Generation IV, battling with it next to a moss covered rock would turn it into a Leafeon; while next to an ice covered rock a Glaceon.
Its most recent evolution Sylveon can easily be obtained by having at least a two-heart rated Friendship level. This is usually done through Pokemon-Amie. Eevees’ appeal and evolutionary abilities make it highly valuable to trainers. And although they can now be found in the wild, they are not easy to come by and are notoriously rare. Though they are quite common in ‘Pokemon Go.’
