Lanturn used Confuse Ray by ShadeofShinon

ShadeOfShinon joined Game-Art-HQ back in early 2013 when I asked her if I could feature her take on Noivern from Pokemon X/Y on the site. Kadabra and Rapidash for our Pokemon Gen I Tribute in 2016 were her first submissions for our art collaborations. In 2017, she joined our Gen II Tribute very quickly and claimed Dunsparce and Lanturn

She has tons of amazing stuff throughout her whole gallery here!


 

Confuse Ray

“A sinister flash of light that makes the target confused. “

Confuse Ray is a more accurate version of Zubat’s Supersonic move. Both moves cause confusion, but Confuse Ray hits with 100% assurance the target will become confused, unless the target uses Substitute.

Only Zubat and Lanturn are using the Confuse Ray in our Art Tribute so far!


 

Lanturn used Screech 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!


 

Screech

“An earsplitting screech harshly lowers the target’s Defence stat.”

Screech is a very unpleasant tone that reduces the opponent’s defence stat by 2 stages. It’s a Normal-type move and has been around since the very first Pokemon game.

It has an 85% accuracy and is considered a clever move if used in a Pokemon contest.

Lanturn is the first Pokemon using the Screech in our Project yet 🙂


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

 

Lanturn is the final Pokemon of the Chinchou line and has the very unique typing of Electric-Water. It has the highest base HP of all electric Pokemon.

It is based off the Anglerfish as seen from the antenna on its head and is known as the Light Pokemon, sharing this type with Ampharos.

During the Lugia mini arc in the Pokemon anime, a trainer called Oliver owned a Lanturn. Both Lanturn and Oliver had become good friends with a baby Lugia and were both seen trying to hide and protect it when Ash and his friends showed up. It showed great sympathy when Lugia was stolen.

 

Description #2

“Should you peer into the ocean at night and see a light shining like the stars, that is Lanturn.”

Just like its pre-evolved form Chinchou, Lanturn is a Water / Electric Pokémon and part of the only evolution line to have that type match-up. Nicknamed “The Deep-Sea Star”, it dwells in the ocean depths and uses its illuminated antennas on its dorsal fin for guidance – a light so powerful it can be traced from a distance of three miles deep.

The light from its antennas are produced from a chemical reaction between bacteria and its bodily fluids. It can control the antennas’ luminosity, using intense bursts to blind its prey before either attacking with electricity or eating them whole.

Lanturn first appeared in the animé as the only Pokémon owned by Oliver, used mostly to swim with. Over the course of three episodes, Lanturn would side with its trainer to free Silver – no, not that Silver, but a baby Lugia that once saved them from drowning – from the hands of Team Rocket.
