Slugma used Harden by PamtreWC

Will from the UK was one of the first artists that joined our Pokemon Gen I tribute back in May 2016 and drew Jynx, followed by Horsea. In April 2017 he joined the Generation  II Tribute with his take on Furret performing the Hyper Voice. Recently he had health problems and I just wish him all good 


He also draws a ton of original Pokemon / Fakemon. His gallery is absolutely worth to visit!


Raises the user’s Defense. Useful when battling physically strong Pokémon


Harden  is one of the rather defensive moves that were introduced in the first Generation of the Pokemon games and can also be used as a part of a contest combination with other moves like Protect and Double-Edge which can make Harden a quite useful strategy.

Only Kakuna and Slugma are using it in our Pokemon Project so far. 


Slugma used Flame Burst by Yggdrassal

Yggdrassal from the United States is an active part of the Game-Art-HQ Community since around three years now and contributed a good couple of video game artworks that are about games that are rarely getting any attention now.

He participated with a Timesplitters 3 entry as example and Rocket: Robots on Wheels as part of our Nintendo 64 Tribute this year. He joined the Pokémon Gen I Tribute with Dodrio in the first May week already and drew seven more of the little Gen I creatures. He also holds the record of the most submissions for our Gen II Pokemon tribute with not less than 11 of the 100 Pokemon being illustrated by him!

Gen II

Gen I

I recommend to check out his gallery where you can see a lot more video game fan art including more Pokémon love as well. 

Flame Burst

The user attacks the target with a bursting flame. The bursting flame damages Pokémon next to the target as well.


The Flame Burst attack is relative new and became available in the Pokémon Generation V games (Black & White). It does not only deal Fire damage to the opponent on-screen but also damages all allies the enemy with around 1/16 of their maximum HP.

While it was introduced in Gen V, we have three Pokemon in our Gen I & II Tributes already that are using the Flame Burst!


#218 Slugma

“A common sight in volcanic areas, it slowly slithers around in a constant search for warm places.”


Slugma is one of the Fire-Type Pokemon that were introduced in the Generation II Pokemon games and has the option to evolve into Magcargo starting from level 38. 

Slugma has no limbs but somehow it is a being made of lava which makes it extremely dangerous for the most other creatures of course. You don’t want to touch this Slug 🙂

In the Pokemon anime during the Silver Conference, a trainer called Macy used a Slugma to battle against Ash’s Totodile, but it was eventually defeated by his Phanpy.
