Quilava used Will-O-Wisp by PluivantLaChance

 PluviantLaChance from the USA joined GA-HQ with his takes on Clefairy, Geodude and finally Mankey. In March 2017 he was one of the first artists that claimed 3 of the 200 available new Pokemon slots and started with Quilava, joined by Elekid and Ursaring.

Have a look at his whole gallery here.

The Will-O-Wisp Move:

“Will-O-Wisp inflicts a burn on the target. It has no effect on Fire-type Pokémon.”


Will-O-Wisp is a fire type move originally introduced in Ruby and Sapphire. A fire-type status condition move that leaves the foe with a burn.

This move is great for leaving a lasting impression on a Pokemon and can even be used as a contest combination when used straight after Sunny Day for bonus points. The downfall of this move is that it won’t affect fire-type Pokemon.

Ninetales was the first of the currently three Pokemon that were illustrated using the Will-O-Wisp move for our project so far!

Quilava used Flamethrower by EdogawaDore

Dinh Tra My aka EdogawaDore is the first Vietnamese Artist in the six-year long history of Game-Art-HQ and she joined our Generation II Tribute  very short after it was announced for new artists in April. We look forward to see any future contributions of her as well!

The Flamethrower Move:

“The foe is scorched with an intense blast of fire. The target may also be left with a burn.”

Flamethrower is a signature fire type move with a huge base power of 90 and accuracy of 100%.

Like Will-O-Wisp, Flamethrower can also be set up with Sunny Day prior for bonus points in a Pokemon competition. It was introduced in the very first Pokemon games and has been TM35 since generation III. Sadly, the base power was reduced from 95 down to 90 in Generation VI.

We had only one Pokemon per generation so far performing the Flamethrower Move. Charizard and Quilava. 


#156 – Quilava

“Before battle, it turns its back on its opponent to demonstrate how ferociously its fire blazes.”


Quilava is the middle form of the Cyndaquil line, evolving to Typhlosion starting at level 36. It made it’s debut in Generation II of Pokemon through Pokemon Gold, Silver and Crystal. Quilava is a pure fire-type Pokemon.

Quilava can only be obtained by evolving a Cyndaquil, a Pokemon that isn’t naturally caught in the wild but more so one given to new Pokemon trainers by a professor, earning the title of being a ‘starter Pokemon’. Quilava can be seen as quite an offensive Pokemon, often using the flames on its back to ward off foes and to warn others not to come too close. If it turns its back on you, you better get out of there!

In the Pokemon anime, Ash owned a Cyndaquil who eventually evolved into a Quilava and it was the third Pokemon he caught during his Johto adventures. Cyndaquil started off very weak and lazy but eventually learnt how to be a more calm and mature Pokemon upon it’s evolution into Quilava, using the intense flame on its back to get Ash out of trouble time and time again.
