Feraligatr used Dragon Claw by 13alrog

13alrog joined GA-HQ last year and our Pokémon Gen I Tribute was the main reason I guess. But later he also participated in our July 2016 Art Challenge with a take on Vega (Balrog in Japan btw.) in his design from Street Fighter V. The theme of this challenge was to draw video games that were released in 2016.

He drew Metapod, Kakuna,Butterfree, Hitmonlee and Pidgeot for the Gen I tribute and joined the 2nd chapter in our ongoing Pokemon celebration with Feraligatr, Pichu and Lanturn.

I recommend to visit his gallery on dA as well which you can find here!

Dragon Claw

“Sharp, huge claws hook and slash the foe quickly and with great power”

The Dragon Claw move is a strong attack that deals physical damage and has no side-effects. it was introduced in the Pokémon Generation III games and one that can be learnt naturally by some Pokemon and through TM to others.

It is a Dragon type move with a power of 80 and accuracy of 100% and one that makes physical contact when hitting a Pokemon.

Only two of the 250 Pokemon from Gen I and II were drawn using the Dragon Claw already, Charizard and Feraligatr

Feraligatr used Crunch by Yggdrassal

Yggdrassal from the United States is an active part of the Game-Art-HQ Community since around three years now 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 Gen I Tribute with Dodrio in the first May week already and drew seven more of the little Gen I creatures. He also holds the record of the most submissions for our Gen II Pokemon tribute with not less than 11 of the 100 Pokemon being illustrated by him!

Gen II

Gen I

I recommend to check out his gallery where you can see a lot more video game fan art including more Pokémon love as well. 


“The user crunches up the target with sharp fangs. It may also lower the target’s Special Defense stat. “

To use the Dark-Type move Crunch on an opponent made it possible to not only inflict heavy damage, but also to lower the target’s Defense stats. There was a 20% chance of this happening.

Affecting Special Defense however was only possible in Generations II and III. From Generation IV and onward, it now affects regular Defense only.

Currently four Pokemon from Generation I and 2 are showing using the Crunch Move in our Art Collaboration!


#160 – Feraligatr

“When it bites with its massive and powerful jaws, it shakes its head and savagely tears its victim up.”


Feraligatr is the final form of the water starter Totodile’s evolutionary line and a pure water type, evolving from Croconaw at level 30. It is a huge crocodile Pokemon that has trouble supporting its weight outside of water but when attacking foes will get on all fours and speed after them at an incredibly fast pace.

The only way to obtain a Feraligatr is by evolving a Totodile into a Croconaw and then into a Feraligatr and Totodile can usually only be obtained by a professor as a ‘starter Pokemon’ for new trainers. It is known as the ‘big jaw’ Pokemon and, like all other starters is mostly male, 87.5% making up the male population of Feraligatrs.

In the Pokemon Adventures manga, Silver owns a Feraligatr that he stole from Professor Elm’s lab as a Totodile, similarly to how the rival will steal a starter Pokemon in the Gold and Silver Pokemon games. Feraligatr cares very deeply for Silver and eventually learns the move ‘Return’ which shows his loyalty and respect for his trainer.
