“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
Vaporeon used Aqua Tail by DragonA7X
DragonA7X from the United States joined Game-Art-HQ in summer 2016 and drew Vaporeon and Dragonite for our Pokemon Gen I Tribute. I look forward to see her returning for Gen II next year since she has a really cute style to bring the little Pokemon creatures to life in her illustrations. See more of her works here!
“The user attacks by swinging its tail as if it were a vicious wave in a raging storm”
Aqua Tail is one of the moves that were introduced in the Generation IV Pokemon games and is a damage-dealing Water Type move without any side effects. It can be learned by many Pokemon in the higher levels, Squirtle as example needs to be at level 28 to learn the Aqua Tail. It is Goldeen’s special move in the Gen IV games.
“Its cell structure is similar to water molecules. It will melt away and become invisible in water”
Vaporeon is one of eight different evolutions Eevee can transform into. Eevee becomes Vaporeon when exposed to a Water Stone. It was one of the three main evolutions of Eevee from Generation I; joined by Flareon and Jolteon.
Though it is primarily mammalian like it’s Eevee counterpart, Vaporeon has also taken on fish-like qualities that better suit it for an aquatic lifestyle. It has developed fins and gills very much like a fish. The water molecules that are within its skin also help it to blend in with its aquatic surroundings, rendering it invisible.
It’s first noteworthy appearance in the anime was in the episode ‘The Battling Eevee Brothers’, under the ownership of the brother Rainer. In fact, typing in Rainer for the name of an unevolved Eevee in ‘Pokemon Go’ will ensure that it will evolve into Vaporeon in its next evolutionary stage.
