Shroomish using Spore by Sandstormer

 Daysia aka Sandstormer from the USA is a big Pokemon fan that draws the creatures often anyway, and I think her contributions to our Project in the form of Electabuzz, Clefable and Venonat were nothing special for her, but she tried out some ideas to draw with more perspective and I think that worked out great! In 2017 she continued to be a part of our Pokemon Tribute with her take on Delibird while she returned with not less than four more Pokemon in our Gen. III Tribute!

I recommend to see her whole gallery at dA where you can see many more Pokemon illustrations and also original characters by her.


“The user scatters bursts of spores that induce sleep.”

 Spore is a basic move that from Generations I through II always ensured that the target affected by it would be put to sleep. Yet it has lost some of its power over the years such as in Generations III to V where Pokemon with the Insomnia or Vital spirit can avoid it altogether. And as of Generation VI, all Grass-Type Pokemon are immune to it.

It is a move that is commonly used by mushroom-based Pokémon, including Parasect and Shroomish which have both been illustrated with the move so far.  Shroomish can learn it starting at level 54 (45 since Generation IV, then down to 40 since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire).

Shroomish using Bullet Seed 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 an 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 & III Pokemon tributes with not less than 11 submissions in Gen II and another 16! in our Gen III Tribute!

Besides the many artworks he did for our Pokemon Tributes you can see a lot more art of many different kinds on his gallery here!

Bullet Seed

“The user forcefully shoots seeds at the target. Two to five seeds are shot in rapid succession.”

Bullet Seed is a Grass-Type multi-strike attack introduced in the Generation III games.  Like other multi-strike moves, it can hit the target 2-5 times with each blow landing 10 base power of damage (25 since Generation V).  Starting from Generation V, any Pokémon that has the Skill Link ability as well as this move can deal 5 hits at all times. 
Shroomish originally was able to learn it through TM09, but since Generation V it can only acquire the move via breeding.

#285 Shroomish

Shroomish is one of the Grass-Type Pokemon that were introduced in the Generation III games and can evolve into Breelom from level 23 onwards.  Together with the Paras and Foongus evolution lines, they are known as the “Mushroom Pokémon”.

Shroomish’s habitat is damp soil in forest depths, often seen standing still in the trees’ shade – and are seen in larger groups in the aftermath of heavy rain.  The trees’ fallen leaves turn into compost for them to feed on.  But they also can be a burden to trees in the onset of danger – the scattered spores from the top of their head are great for self-defense, but they’re so toxic they can send the inhaler into unbearable pain and can cause nearby plants and trees to wilt.

In the Hoenn region, they make their main residence deep inside Petalburg Woods.  It’s almost true for the animé as well – their main home was a smaller forest nearby, surrounding an old mansion.  However, as the nearby section of forest was demolished and converted into an urban area, the Shroomish stopped visiting the mansion for many years, eventually calling it their only home and using a Stun Spore to prevent its demolition.  In the end, the mansion’s owner decided to let the mansion go, but allow for a new forest to grow in its place.
