Ninjask using Baton Pass by MechaKraken

Steve Southwell from the USA is a part of the GA-HQ Community since years and created submissions for our Projects mostly by using 3D Programmes before he stuck to the drawn submissions for our Pokemon Project. He is a part of all of our Generation Projects so far including the upcoming Gen IV ūüôā¬†

In his gallery you can see that he also creates crafts and basically uses all kinds of tools to create art!


Baton Pass

‚ÄúThe user switches places with a party Pok√©mon in waiting and passes along any stat changes.‚ÄĚ

Baton Pass is a Normal-type non-damaging move that is best implemented when a trainer has a good Pokemon to switch out, transferring all temporary stat changes during the switch.

There is no TM for Baton Pass but a number of Pokemon can learn this move naturally, including Ninjask at level 45 (35 since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire). It is one of the moves that were introduced in Generation II; Aipom by TamarinFrog introduced it to our big Pokemon Tribute!

Ninjask using Fury Cutter by Dreamgate-Gad

Dreamgate-Gad from Peru is one of the most active Game-Art-HQ Contributors since around four years and started with a really unpopular character from the Final Fight games for one of our fighting game related projects.

He continued to participate in almost all later art activities, our Pokémon Tribute, however, got his full dedication, today in June 2017 he drew already nineteen of the many Pokemon for our tribute series since we started it in 2016!

Fury Cutter

“The target is slashed with scythes or claws. Its power increases if it hits in succession.“

Fury Cutter is a physical Bug-type move with an incredible 95% accuracy and a large PP of 20. The power of this move doubles when it is used consecutively after continuous turns making it a very strong move indeed.

It was first introduced in Generation II and is considered to be a cool move if used in a Pokemon contest. Grovlye from Gen III was the first Pokemon in our series of Pokemon Tributes that was illustrated using the Fury Cutter.  Ninjask quickly followed up, being able to learn the move upon evolving at level 20.

#291 Ninjask

“Because it darts about vigorously at high speed, it is very difficult to see. Hearing its distinctive cries for too long induces a headache.”

Ninjask is a dual bug / flying type and the evolved form of Nincada, which evolves into it from level 20 onward.  These Pokémon are uncommon in the wild and are often seen in forests, gathering around tree sap.

Good luck trying to see one up close – they move so quickly it’s hard for any pair of eyes to track it down, almost as if they’re invisible.¬† Their cry is very distinct though; if a trainer is unable to control them properly, they will disobey and give out a continuous scream that can induce long-lasting headaches.¬† They are rewarding to use in battle, with their speed being high enough to dodge any attack – but they do test the trainer’s abilities when in use.

During the Battle Frontier arc of the anim√©, Ash and his friends met Evian, a student at the Pok√©mon Ninja School who had a Ninjask as a training partner.¬† Ash’s group enrolled in the school for the day and got involved in a handful of challenging puzzles – including finding the teacher’s Kecleon, which Ninjask used a whirlwind to whip up sand and reveal its location.¬† Later on, it got captured by Team Rocket, but Ash’s Grovyle freed it along with all the other imprisoned Pok√©mon.
