Skitty using Charm by Sigma-Astra

Sigma-Astra aka Heather from the USA is a professional graphic designer who loves animals and especially the felines and joined our Pokemon Collaboration in January of 2018 as one of the first artists, and the first completely new artist on GA-HQ. Her take on Skitty using Charm was her first artworks since a long while, and it was actually the first time she ever drew a Pokemon. 

But what can I say? It sure looks lovely and I hope Heather’s circumstances are better now than in the past. I recommend to visit her gallery on dA but also to have a look at her most recent journal there. 


“A move that charms the target into complacency, sharply reducing its Attack power.”

Charm is a non-damaging Normal-type move originally introduced in Generation II. It became a Fairy-type move from Generation VI on.

The attack stat of the target is lowered by two stages when Charm is used, which helps soften the blow to a small Pokemon like Teddiursa when pitted against bigger foes. In contests, it is seen as a cute move.  Skitty can learn the move at level 25 (22 in Diamond and Pearl).


Skitty using Tail Whip by AClockworkKitten

Pusa from the United States joined our Pokemon Tribute I in summer 2016 as one of the last artists but drew not less than three beautiful illustrations for it already. Starting with Goldeen, Diglett and finally a super cool Exeggcute one. Following were Hoppip, Bellossom, and Yanma for our Gen II Tribute. In 2018 she contributed even four Pokemon with Skitty, Mudkip, Banette, and Jirachi!


I recommend visiting her whole gallery to see many more cute artworks 🙂

Tail Whip

“The user wags its tail cutely, making opposing Pokémon less wary and lowering their Defense stat.”

Tail Whip is a non-damaging Normal move that was introduced right at the very beginning of Pokemon in the first games. It lowers the opponent’s defense stat and can be used in succession to further reduce their defense more and more each turn.

It’s a very basic move and a lot of Pokemon can learn it at a very low level, including Skitty – gaining it at level 3 in Generation III, but they’d know it since hatching out of its egg from Generation IV onward.

#300 Skitty

“A Skitty’s adorably cute behavior makes it highly popular. In battle, it makes its tail puff out. It threatens foes with a sharp growl.”

Skitty is a Normal-type Pokémon that is seen as one of the most iconic of the new additions in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald.  It evolves into Delcatty when exposed to a Moon Stone.

Skitty are popular to keep as pets based on their cute looks and mannerisms, but it’s said that it’s really difficult for them to trust their owners at first.  They are also known for their obsession for moving objects and chasing them around, including its own tail, which makes them become dizzy.  They have a more serious side in battle though, where they puff out their tails and use growls to scare their opponents.

In the animé, May owned a Skitty after winning a decisive battle against Jessie, followed by said Pokémon catching itself in one of May’s Poké Balls.  Despite its cute appeal and May’s draw to it, Skitty often brought itself out of its Poké Ball and stirred up trouble with other wild Pokémon, as well as the usual habits of chasing moving objects and the tails of Pikachu, Aipom, Team Rocket’s Meowth and itself.  It was also originally a poor team player, but it showed gradual improvement over the course of the Advanced Generation arc and even was involved in a formidable quarter-final in the Hoenn Grand Tournament.
