#122 Mr. Mime used Substitute and Meditate!
Mr. Mime used Substitute by Quartette
Quartette from Canada is a contributing Game-Art-HQ member since around 2014 already and it was almost a given that he would participate in our first Pokemon related collaboration. He was fast to grab the first of the two Doduo spots, as he mentioned, the Doduo is his first bird like Pokemon. Have a look at his whole gallery on dA here!
“The user makes a copy of itself using some of its HP. The copy serves as the user’s decoy”
Substitute might be one of the most original non-damaging Pokemon moves from the classic games. Instead of directly attacking or using a healing move, this creates a decoy that has 25% of the max health of the user and will take the damage instead of the caster itself.
It is especially effective when the user has only a few HP left anyway.
Mr. Mime used Meditate by shamsnelson
Shams Nelson from the USA was the last artist that joined our first Pokemon tribute. Back in early October 2016 we had the problem that the artist who claimed Geodude with Rock Throw weeks before could not draw it anymore and Shams just asked for a spot a few days ago when the last Pokemon on the list, Dugtrio got just claimed.
The rest is history and Shams did not only take Geodude but also Mr.Mime in the end.
“The user meditates to awaken the power deep within its body and raise its Attack stat”
Meditate is a Psychic-Type move that won’t damage the enemies directly but helps greatly to increase the own attack stats by one stage. It can also be powered up by using Psychium Z to rise the Attack stats by another stage.
“Always practices its pantomime act. It makes enemies believe something exists that really doesn’t”
Mr. Mime was a Psychic-Type Pokemon until Generation VI when the Fairy-type was introduced and Mr.Mime became a Dual-type Psychic/Fairy Pokemon.
It is one of the few humanoid like Pokemon and seems to be based on a marionette doll.
