Girafarig used Psybeam by nabhalim

Nabhalim from the United Kingdom read about our Pokemon Gen I Tribute in summer 2016 and quickly claimed the 2nd Machop spot to draw this little underdog. She returned with the three submissions  of Girafarig, Phanphy and finally Elekid in our Generation II Tribute!

Have a look at her whole gallery here!


Fires a peculiar ray that may confuse the foe.

Psybeam a Psychic-Type beam attack that has a 10% chance of confusing the opponent when the attack connects.

It also deals a bit of damage in the process. Girafarig introduced this move to our Tribute in 2017!


Girafarig used Shadow Ball by Hedgey

Hedgey aka Gina from the UK  is another one of the artists that joined Game-Art-HQ in May 2016 to participate in the Pokémon Tribute. She started with a super cute take on Meowth, continued with Arbok, Nidorino and Vulpix and also created truly epic Ditto illustration for this project. Raticate was her last submission for the Gen I Tribute.

She returned with her takes on Girafarig, Granbull and Flaaffy in our second part of the big Pokemon Project and became also a part of the website’s team to help with a good couple of the Pokemon descriptions you see in these galleries!


She also draws a ton of stuff including more Pokémon related art on dA , you should visit her whole gallery here!

Shadow Ball

“The user hurls a shadowy blob at the target. This may also lower the target’s Sp. Def stat”

The Shadow Ball attack was introduced in the Generation II Pokemon games and is a Ghost-Type move that deals not only damage but also has a 20% chance of lowering the opponents Special Defense stats by one stage.

If a Pokemon has the Bulletproof ability they will not be affected by a move such as Shadow Ball.

Five Pokemon are using the Shadow Ball in our Project currently, the first one was Kadabra from Generation I!

#203 – Girafarig

“Its tail, which also contains a small brain, may bite on its own if it notices an alluring smell.”


Girafarig is a dual Normal/Psychic Type giraffe-like Pokemon introduced in Generation II of Pokemon Gold, Silver and Crystal.

The most notable features of this Pokemon is that it technically has two heads from both ends of its body. Most of thinking is done from the front head, but a smaller brain does exist in the tail end. It alerts the main body to danger and can react violently if threatening the Pokemon. If the tail end also smells something attractive it will bite it to see if it is edible.

In the Pokemon movie, ‘Spell of the Unown’, a trainer at the start of the film can be seen using a Girafarig to battle with Ash.
