Stantler used Jump Kick by MuddyTiger

 MuddyTiger debuted on Game-Art-HQ last year with her takes on Paras, Arbok, Machoke, Blastoise, Victreebel, and Graveler in the Gen I Tribute. 

I was glad she returned with more Pokemon illustrations for the Gen II Tribute. Her takes on Ariados and Stantler look nothing but spectacular!

Jump Kick

“The user jumps up high, then kicks. If it misses, the user hurts itself.”

Jump Kick was originally one of the signature moves of the Generation I Pokemon, Hitmonlee and is a Fighting-type move. it has a very high power of 100 which is a very good Fighting-type move indeed!

The main drawback of using Jump Kick is the crash damage the user takes after using it; if the user misses, damage equal to that of half the user’s HP will inflict upon the Pokemon using the move.


Stantler used Shadow Ball by Altarior

Altarior from Denmark is one of the around 15 artists that were invited for our first Pokémon Art Collaboration. I saw her impressive take on Hoh-Oh in February 2016 and had a feeling she would like this project. She drew not less than nine of the Generation I Pokemon which made her one of the most active artists for our first Pokemon Collaboration. In 2017 she returned to the fun and took Togetic, Gligar, Remoraid, Skarmony and Stantler.

Gen I

You are going to find a ton of awesome artworks in her gallery here at deviantART!

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!




#234 Stantler

“The curved antlers subtly change the flow of air to create a strange space where reality is distorted.”


Stantler is a Normal type Pokemon introduced in the Gold and Silver games that is currently not known to evolve into any other Pokemon. It is based off a sika deer or a reindeer and the horns are based off a Japanese device used to scare off birds in gardens.

Funnily enough, Stantler can be found on Route 36 leading to Violet City which is the game counterpart of Nara, Japan which is where tame deer roam freely. Stantler is in the Field egg group.

Stantler’s first major apperance in the Pokemon anime was in an episode where Brock helped to reunite a baby Stantler with its herd. It was using its psychic abilities to create illusions of a rampaging herd of Stantler, terrorising people but Brock saw past this trick and worked out that it was doing this because it was lost and scared.
