Dustox using Light Screen by xOwleyex 

Phi Nguyen from the USA joined Game-Art-HQ this year and quickly claimed the lovely Quagsire as his first contribution to one of our art collaborations! In 2018 he returned for our Pokemon Generation III tribute with Dustox and Seviper. He also participated in other art projects and draws a lot of Pokemon related fan art among other things.

Check out his gallery here!

Light Screen

“A wondrous wall of light is put up to suppress damage from special attacks for five turns.”

Light Screen is a defensive Non-Attacking Psychic Move introduced in Generation I. It is found as TM Move TM16 in Generation III and beyond.

It’s primarily used to reduce the damage received from opposing Special Attacks for five turns. The effects of this defensive move have varied from generation to generation. The five turns rule wasn’t applied until Generation II and by Generation III it halves the damage received by the user rather than double the Special Defense stats of the user from Generation I.

Light Screen is currently used by 3 of the Pokemon from the first three Generations in our Pokemon Tribute. Dustox can learn Light Screen at level 31 naturally (27 since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire) but it can also be taught it through TM.

Dustox using Silver Wind by ShadeofShinon

ShadeOfShinon from Finland joined Game-Art-HQ back in early 2013 when I asked her if I could feature her take on Noivern from Pokemon X/Y on the site. Kadabra and Rapidash for our Pokemon Gen I Tribute in 2016 were her first submissions for our art collaborations.

In 2017, she joined our Gen II Tribute very quickly and claimed Dunsparce and Lanturn.  She returned for our Gen III Tribute as well and created wonderful illustrations of Dustox, Aggron, and Camerupt for it. She is also on board our upcoming Gen IV Project as well!

She has tons of amazing stuff throughout her whole gallery on DeviantArt here! You can see something really beautiful there 🙂


Silver Wind

“The target is attacked with powdery scales blown by the wind. This may also raise all the user’s stats.”

Silver Wind is a damage-dealing Bug-type move that was firstly introduced in Hoenn. It has a 10% chance of raising all of the user’s stats by one stage when used in battle.

If used in any contest, this move is seen as very beautiful. Level 34 (25 since ORAS) is when Dustox can learn Silver Wind.


#269 Dustox

“It is a nocturnal Pokémon that flies from fields and mountains to the attraction of streetlights at night. It looses highly toxic powder from its wings.”

Dustox is a dual bug/poison type Pokémon and one of two final forms for Wurmple, evolving at level 10 from Cascoon.  Like most bugs, they are expected to be seen in forests.

They appear more often at night and are drawn to streetlights in nearby urban areas.  They use their antennae as a radar to look for food, which is usually left on trees that line up boulevards – but they often leave a mess on the pavement when doing so.  When their wings flap, they scatter a fine toxic powder that can make even the healthiest people fall sick within moments.

In the animé, Team Rocket’s Jessie owned a Dustox that evolved from a Wurmple.  It remained loyal and obedient to her, even going as far as having cold feet when it came to leaving her side in the Diamond and Pearl arc.  It was Jessie’s primary contest-oriented Pokémon and was there for many of them across Hoenn and her earliest across Sinnoh, including helping her win her first ribbon from that region.  Not long after that, Jessie released it out into the wild, allowing it to mate with a partner during the Dustox Crossing at Mt. Coronet.
