Sharpedo using Scary Face by Chari-Artist

Kay, aka Chari-Artist is a cool artist from Canada who joined the Game-Art-HQ community back in 2014 already and became an important part of our big Legend of Zelda Art Collaboration, the Link’s Blacklist. In 2016 he joined our first Pokemon Tribute and continued to participate in the Generation based projects every year. He just claimed some of the Pokemon for our upcoming Gen IV Tribute already :- ) 

Have a good look at his whole gallery here!

Scary Face

“The user frightens the target with a scary face to harshly lower its Speed stat.”

Scary Face is a normal type move in which the user makes a scary face at its opponent in order to intimidate them, which reduces their speed stat by 2.

This is a move that cannot be taught though TM and one that can only be learnt naturally by specific Pokemon or by breeding it as an egg move onto certain ones. In the generation V games both Scary Face and Glare had identical appearances. The accuracy of this move was changed to 100% from generation V onward. Sharpedo learns Scary Face at level 29.

Sharpedo using Bite by 13alrog

13alrog joined GA-HQ last year and our Pokémon Gen I Tribute was the main reason I guess. But later he also participated in our July 2016 Art Challenge with a take on Vega (Balrog in Japan btw.) in his design from Street Fighter V. The theme of this challenge was to draw video games that were released in 2016.

He drew not less than twelve Pokemon for our three Collaborations so far!

I recommend visiting his gallery on dA as well which you can find here!



“The target is bitten with viciously sharp fangs. This may also make the target flinch”

Bite started as a simple Normal-type attack in Generation I but was changed to a Dark-Type Attack since Generation II. It has a 10% chance to set the opponent into the Flinch status in Gen I, from Gen II on till today the chance to Flinch the opponent was increased to 30%!

Sharpedo can learn Bite as early as level 1.


“Nicknamed “the bully of the sea,” Sharpedo is widely feared. Its cruel fangs grow back immediately if they snap off. Just one of these Pokémon can thoroughly tear apart a supertanker”

Sharpedo is a dual Water/Dark Pokemon that debuted in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. It evolves from the piranha pokemon, Carvanha, at level 30. Known as the “Brutal Pokemon”, Sharpedo is a torpedo-shaped shark pokemon.

While its body may be similar to an ocean sunfish, you’d best not take this sea predator, as even if it’s primary food is Wailmer, it is able to tear apart a supertanker with its sharp fangs. With its fast movement, sharp fangs that can rip through sheet iron, ability to smell blood and vicious, violent nature, it has gained the nickname “Bully or the Sea”, with larger groups being known as “Gangs of the Sea”.

It swims by swallowing and shooting out jets of seawater, which can give it speed up to 75mph. Ironically, in the past, it was itself a victim of overfishing, since it’s dorsal fin was considered a delicacy and its fangs were used for making accessories.

Its power combined with its wickedness is the reason that Team Aqua leader, Archie, uses a Sharpedo as his main pokemon. Also worth noting is that in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire remakes, Sharpedo has it’s own Surf model, much like Lapras. It travels significantly faster during Surf than any other pokemon, yet as a drawback, it’s impossible to fish while riding a Sharpedo because “It’s too risky to let go now!”.
