Pineco used Double Edge by GlitzerKirby

GlitzerKirby is one of the German artists that followed the call and joined GA-HQ due to the Pokemon Tribute in 2016. His three Generation I contributions covered Hitmonchan, Voltorb and finally Doduo with the Run Away move that nobody else drew in the Gen I & II Projects. When we started our Gen II Tribute, Glitzerkirby joined quickly with Sunkern, Dunsparce, Pineco and finally Cleffa.

You can see his whole gallery on dA here!


“A reckless, life-risking tackle. This also damages the user quite a lot.”

Double-Edge is a Normal-type move firstly introduced in Generation I. with a whopping base power of 120 and an accuracy of 100%, this move is a force to be reckoned with although the fatal flaw is that using this attack also damages the user greatly.

If a Pokemon has the ability ‘Rock Head’ then they don’t suffer the recoil damage which makes this a deadly move for them!

Pineco introduced this move to our Project in summer 2017!

Pineco used Stealth Rock by MechaKraken

Steve Southwell from the USA is a part of the GA-HQ Community since years and created submissions for our Projects mostly by using 3D Programmes before he sticked to the drawn submissions for our Pokemon Project. His contributions are Pinsir for Gen I and Pineco & Qwilfish for the Gen II Tribute.

In his gallery you can see that he also creates crafts and basically uses all kinds of tools to create art!

Stealth Rock

“The user lays a trap of levitating stones around the foe. The trap hurts foes that switch into battle.”

Stealth Rock is a Rock-type move in which the user traps opposing Pokemon by laying pointed rocks at their feet. When an opponent tries to switch out, the sharp rocks will hurt the Pokemon in question.

If used in a Pokemon contest, this move is seen as ‘cool’ which is actually the only Rock type move with this feat as of the current state of Pokemon games. Stealth Rock is currently used by Elekid and Donphan from Gen II!

#204 – Pineco

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


Pineco is a Bug type Pokemon that takes the form of a pinecone. It is very prone to self destructing and will often explode if someone shakes the tree it is hanging from while it is eating.

At level 31 Pineco can evolve into Forretress. Pineco often glues tree bark to itself in order to make its shell thicker.

In the Pokemon anime, Brock owned a Pineco that he caught when he claimed he wanted to train one as he knew it would be tricky due to it being prone to exploding all the time and he wanted the challenge. Brock took very good care of Pineco and gave it a lot of patience and training to stop it from exploding so much and it eventually returned the favour by evolving into a Forretress.
