Magnemite used Mirror Shot by XiaoDarkCloud
Like many other artists, XiaoDarkCloud joined GA-HQ due to our first Pokemon Tribute!
“The user looses a flash of energy from its polished body. It may also lower the target’s accuracy”
Mirror Shot is one of the Steel-Type Moves and was introduced in the Gen VI games. It deals damage with a power rating of 65 and has also a 30% chance of decreasing the accuracy of the opponent by one stage.
Magnemite used Sonic Boom by freqrexy
Bev Wooff / Freqrexy from the United Kingdom creates art since 13 years already and joined our Pokemon Tribute as one of the first artists in May already. In the end she contributed not less than seven of the 151 Pokemon for it, starting with Chansey and Parasect, up to Koffing, Seel and Golem and eventually Golem, Jynx and Magnemite which was one of the last 10 Pokemon drawn for this project.
You can see a lot of drawn art but also crafted items and even cosplay in her gallery here!
“A Normal-type attack. It inflicts a set amount of damage regardless of the target’s type”
The Sonic Boom is not only an awesome track from Sonic The Hedgehog CD or a Projectile Special Move of Guile since Street Fighter II but also a damage dealing normal-type move since the first Pokemon games back in 1996. It has no secondary effects, does not harm Ghost-type Pokemon since Gen VI and deals only exactly 20 damage if it hits. Better go home and be a family man…!
“Appears as if out of nowhere. It floats using anti-gravity and discharges electricity from two side-mounted units”
Magnemite is the first dual-type Electric/Steel Pokémon in the Pokedex but started as a pure Electric type in Gen I when the Steel type was not yet introduced.
These little daredevils seem to be a kind of robotic life and they exist for over 3000 years it seems.
