Cloyster used Icicle Spear by Yggdrassal

Yggdrassal from the United States is an active part of the Game-Art-HQ Community since around two years and contributed a good couple of video game artworks that are about games that are rarely getting any attention now.

He participated with a Timesplitters 3 entry as example and Rocket: Robots on Wheels as part of our Nintendo 64 Tribute this year. He joined the Pokémon Tribute with Dodrio in the first May week already and drew seven more of the little Gen I creatures. I recommend to check out his gallery where you can see a lot more video game fan art including more Pokémon love as well. 


“Attacks the foe by firing 2 to 5 icicles in a row”

The Icicle Spear was introduced in the Generation III Pokemon Games and is a multi-striking Ice-Type move with low to average chances that it will strike the enemy more than 2-times. It will always hit five times if the user has the Skill Link ability. Its power was increased from 10 to 25 in Gen V.



Cloyster used Aurora Beam by Lilith-the-5th

Laura Galli from Italy is an active part of Game-Art-HQ since around two years and participated in art collaborations like the Playstation’s Anniversary and our Final Fantasy IX Collaboration with OverClockedRemix that combined Music with visual Art. 

She claimed Ninetales in May already and helped us out in September when only Closyster and a few other Pokemon were still available. I recommend to visit her whole gallery here!


“A rainbow-colored attack beam. It may lower the foe’s Attack stats!

The Aurora Beam is one of the Ice-Type moves that were debuting together with the first Pokemon games. It deals damage and  has also a 10% chance of lowering the attack stat of the enemy by one stage. In Pokemon Stadium the chance was 33%.



  “Its shell is so hard, it can even withstand a bomb. No one has ever seen what is inside its shell”

If a Shellder was exposed to a Water Stone, it may change into the Cloyster,  a dual-type Water/Ice Pokémon that can gain a weight of over 130 kg!

The Cloyster itself looks like a living black pearl with a face, but it is surrounded by a big shell that forms an excellent armor for it.

The internal anatomy of the Cloyster was never seen by anyone yet…
