Ursaring used Hyper Beam by DrManiacal 

Chris Moschler is Dr. Maniacal – sounds like it could be a line spoken in an old Slasher Horror movie trailer and his unique take on the Exeggutor in 2016 made it look like it could be an enemy or boss character in a pretty cool horror game actually.

Chris got my attention back in November 2015 with his tribute to The Binding of Isaac that looked similar scary and I am glad he joined this project and returned for the illustration of Ursaring this year. 


You can see his gallery that is full of variation here!



Hyper Beam

“An extremely powerful attack. The attacker becomes so tired, it has to rest the next turn”

Hyper Beam is the incredibly powerful TM15 attack. Another two-turn attack, the user attacks with an incredibly powerful beam and then rests on the second turn.

It is a normal type move with an incredible power of 150.

The small Sunkern as well as the Bear sized Ursaring are both using the Hyper Beam in our Pokemon Tribute.



Ursaring used Scary Face by PluivantLaChance

 PluviantLaChance from the USA joined GA-HQ with his takes on Clefairy, Geodude and finally Mankey. In March 2017 he was one of the first artists that claimed 3 of the 200 available new Pokemon slots and started with Quilava, joined by Elekid and Ursaring.

Have a look at his whole gallery here.

Scary Face

“The user frightens the target with a scary face to harshly lower its Speed stat.”

Scary Face is a normal type move in which the user makes a scary face at its opponent in order to intimidate them, which reduces their speed stat by 2.

This is a move that cannot be taught though TM and one that can only be learnt naturally by specific Pokemon or by breeding it as an egg move onto certain ones. In the generation V games both Scary Face and Glare had identical appearances. The accuracy of this move was changed to 100% from generation V onward.

One of the moves that were not picked for our Generation I Tribute while four artists took it for Gen II Pokemon!

#217 – Ursaring

“Although it has a large body, it is quite skilled at climbing trees. It eats and sleeps in the treetops.”


Ursaring is a Normal-type Pokemon that resembles a bear and can evolve from Teddiursa starting at level 30. It can often be found in mountainous forests, gathering food throughout the day and sleeping in treetops.

It’s name is a mix of ursa which is Latin for bear and ring, resembling the ring marking on its stomach. The shiny form of Ursaring is bright green.

In the Pokemon anime, Ash’s rival, Paul owns an Ursaring that he caught while it was chasing Ash and his friends. Ursaring were also seen to be living in Celebi’s forest in the Pokemon movie ‘Celebi: Voice of the Forest’.
