#021 Spearow used Leer and Aerial Ace!
Spearow used Leer by LordOrenamus
LordOrenamus from France joined the Pokémon Tribute and our Community in June when the project was ongoing already for a month, unlike the majority of the other artists, he used traditional tools like pencils to illustrate the Pokémon. I recommend to have a look at his gallery on dA, there is more video game fan art there 🙂
“The foe is given an intimidating leer with sharp eyes. The target’s Defense stat is reduced.“
Leer is a Normal-Type move introduced in Generation I. Used by a great multitude of Pokemon, Leer is an intimidating move used to lower an opponent’s defense.
The move can be used multiple times to decrease the opponents’ defense stats by one level. In future Double Battles of subsequent Generations, both opponents are affected by this move. However in Triple Battles, it will only hit the Pokemon closest to the user.
Spearow used Aerial Ace by TheWarriorArtist
The Pencil Wielding Warrior from the USA is one of the artists that joined Game-Art-HQ in summer 2016 to participate in our first Pokemon tribute. He did Dewgong and Staryu and eventually Spearow which was one of the last available Pokemon. He draws a lot Pokemon related art which you can see in his gallery there and I am pretty sure we will see more from him next year!
“The user confounds the target with speed, then slashes. This attack never misses”
The Aerial Ace was introduced in the Gen III games in 2002 and is a damage-dealing Flying-type move that bypasses any accuracy checks.
It can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles since Gen V.
“Its wings are short, so it can’t fly a long distance. If it’s not eating, it darts around in a hurry”
Spearow is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon that can evolve into Fearow if it reaches level 20 or higher. It is a very small Pokemon that eats bugs and hunts sometimes in a large flock. Their shrieks are are very loud and can be heard around a kilometre away even.
If the info in the first Pokemon Anime episode was true, the Spearow is actually color blind.
