Shellder used Surf by MTSugarr
MTSugar joined GA-HQ with her special take on Shellder, just to claim a very attracting Exeggcute as well. If you like cute stuff, check out her whole gallery here!
“It swamps the entire battlefield with a giant wave. It can also be used to cross water”
Surf is a damage dealing Water-Type Pokémon attack which had no side effects in the Gen I & II games but is also hitting allies since Gen IV and attacks all opposing Pokémon in Double and Tripple matches. The Surf move can also be used to travel over the water.
Shellder used Supersonic by Twarda8
Karolina Twardosz from Poland joined the Pokemon Tribute after I invited her personally to this project, I think back in April or May. What she didn’t know was that she and a specific fan art she drew in February 2016 to tribute the Pokemon Anniversary was one of the reasons why we started our first Pokemon Art Collaboration!
She did a wonderful little piece with the three starters Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle in front of the Games and a Nintendo 3DS. Her dedication to this piece made us think that we should do something for the Pokemon Fan Community as well.
Twarda drew five of the Pokemon including MissingNo and I am sure we will see more from her in the Gen II Tribute next year. I recommend to visit her whole gallery on deviantART here!
“A special Normal-type technique. Supersonic sound waves are used to confuse the target”
Supersonic is one of the non-damage dealing normal-type moves and debuted in the classic Pokemon games already. Instead of attacking the opponent directly, it will confuse it which is a good opportunity for other moves. Its accuracy is only at 55% though and it won’t hit opponents that are already confused or have the Soundproof or Own Tempo abilities.
“Its shell is harder than diamond. It hides in sand on the sea floor and catches prey with its soft tongue”
Shellder is a Water-type Pokemon and somehow they are able to form a symbiotic relationship with a Slowpoke if they bite them in the tail. I bet they are tasty. They look tasty!
