Steelix used Iron Tail by Edo–sama and MudSaw

Ed from Poland is a part of the Game-Art-HQ Community since around two years now and draws excellent video game fan art that is often related to Nintendo.He joined our first Pokemon Tribute already with Mewtwo and returned with Bayleef and Steelix in 2017.

Bayleef was actually one of his favourite Pokemon for a long time and still is his favourite Grass-Type Pokemon!


You can see his whole gallery here!


MudSaw from the United States participated in art collaborations before and eventually joined our Pokemon Gen I Tribute with Electrode, Tentacruel and Grimer in our first part of the big Pokemon Project here. This year he returned with Misdreavus, Steelix and Delibird to continue his Triple Battle!

Iron Tail

“Slams the foe with a hard tail. It may also lower Defense.”

Iron Tail is Steel-Type Move and was introduced in Generation II. It was used as TM Move TM23. It hits an opponent with a hardened tail that has a 30% chance of lowering the opponent’s defense.

Right now, Onix and Steelix are the only Pokemon that use this move in our Art Collaboration!

#208 – Steelix

“Tempered underground under high pressure and heat, its body is harder than any metal.”


Steelix is a Steel/Ground type Pokemon that evolves from Onix when traded holding a Metal Coat. When holding a Steelixite, Steelix can evolve further into Mega Steelix! Steelix is made up of multiple rocks as looks particularly serpentine in appearance.

Steelix is incredibly sturdy, being able to endure a lot of hard hits however due to the bulk of it’s weight, Steelix is particularly slow moving. It can often be found burrowing in mountains and caves and is even capable of chewing through boulders.

In the Pokemon anime, Brock owned a Onix that he used to battle Ash in his gym when he first met him. Onix didn’t evolve for a long time, but eventually in the Sinnoh series where it was revealed that Brock’s little brother, Forrest had been training Steelix in the Pewter City Gym and it had evolved there. In the Sun and Moon series, Brock was shown to be able to Mega Evolve his Steelix.
