#120 Staryu used Signal Beam and Power Gem!
Staryu used Signal Beam by Macuarrorro
Omar from Mexico was one of the first 30 artists on board our Pokemon Tribute and we were never sure if he wouldn’t do it one more time. We were Lucky when we got his first submission, Tangela with the Power Whip, and loved his take on Muk with TOXIC …of course. His takes on Dugtrio, Magmar and finally Staryu were all great as well.
This guy loves Pokemon and Britney Spears and I hope he will Gimme More next year.
Check his whole gallery with is full of love for Pokemon here!
“A strange beam attack that may confuse the foe.”
Signal Beam is a Generation III Bug-Type move. Aside from dishing out some decent damage; it also has a 10% chance of confusing the opponent. Although it is Bug-Type; a good deal of Generation I Water-Type Pokemon can actually learn this move.
Staryu used Power Gem 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 attacks with a ray of light that sparkles as if it were made of gemstones.”
Power Gem is a Generation IV Rock-Type move. It has a very decent amount of PP and can deal a good amount of damage to an opponent. But it has no secondary effect like Confuse or Poison for example.
“An enigmatic Pokémon that can effortlessly regenerate any appendage it loses in battle”
Staryu is a Water-Type Pokemon that is most famous for being associated with Misty from the Pokemon games and anime. Though it is Water-Type, it can levitate and hover above land and sea just fine.It seems to glow and shine just like a real star at night.
It also seems to lose its color a bit when it weakens. Just like regular starfish, if one of it’s appendages is cut off another one can grow back in its place effortlessly.
