Electrike using Spark by Irete

Martina, aka Irete from Sweden joined Game-Art-HQ with her submissions to the Link’s & Mario’s Blacklist Projects. She skipped the Gen I but joined the Pokemon Gen II Tribute by claiming Meganium using the Magical Leaf ability! Her colorful style along with her love for all that is Nintendo was a welcomed addition to capture the fun-loving essence of Pokemon. In 2018 she returned with her sparking take on Electrike!

You can see what I mean when browsing her gallery here!



“The user throws an electrically charged tackle at the target. This may also leave the target with paralysis.”

Spark is an Electric-type attack move introduced in Generation II.  It has a base power of 65, an accuracy rating of 100 and if it the move hits the target, there is also a 30% chance of paralyzing them as well.

Electrike can learn the move at level 20 (13 since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire).

Electrike using Thunder Fang 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!

Thunder Fang

“The user bites with electrified fangs. It may also make the target flinch or leave it with paralysis.”

Thunder Fang is an Electric-type attack move introduced in Generation IV.  Just like Spark, it has a base power of 65, but it has a slightly lower accuracy rating of 95.  If the move hits, there is a 10% chance of the target being paralyzed – and if the attacker is faster than the target, there is also an additional 10% chance of flinching.

Electrike can learn the move at level 33 (19 since ORAS).

#309 Electrike

“It generates electricity using friction from the atmosphere. In seasons with especially arid air, its entire body blazes with violent showers of sparks.”

Electrike is a pure electric type Pokémon introduced in Generation III, and interestingly is a version exclusive for Pokémon Y in Generation VI, with Houndour taking its place in X.  It evolves into Manectric at level 26 and lives in areas with lots of grass.

Electrike generates static electricity from friction caused by its fast running speeds, storing all of this energy inside its long fur.  These electric charges also stimulate its leg muscles for it to keep running at paces that the human eye can’t follow, even though the loud noises from these crackles prove their presence otherwise.  They also get discharged during spells of dry weather, or at the onset of a storm.

Wattson, Mauville City’s Gym Leader, owned an Electrike during the events of the animé.  Not long after Ash won his Dynamo Badge and sent Wattson into a state of depression, an Electrike met him and provided comfort during his moment of solitude.  Another failed scheme from Team Rocket later, Electrike showed interest in staying by Wattson’s side and has been a treasured team member ever since.
