Numel using Lava Plume by hftran

Huan Tran from the USA draws his favorite Pokemon since years and we were lucky that he came on board our Generation III Tribute in early 2018 to get Numel and Lombre. I am glad that he just joined our upcoming Gen IV tribute as well 🙂


Check out his gallery here for a lot more Pokemon art!

Lava Plume

“The user torches everything around it with an inferno of scarlet flames. This may also leave those hit with a burn”

Lava Plume is a Fire-type Pokemon move first introduced in gen IV with a power of 80 and a PP of 15. The animation of the move will destroy round rocks during Pokemon battles.

If used in a Pokemon contest it is considered to be a tough move. Numel can learn Lava Plume at level 22.

Numel using Howl by freqrexy

Bev Wooff / Freqrexy from the United Kingdom creates art for 13 years already and joined our Pokemon Tribute as one of the first artists in May already. In the end, she contributed not less than eight of the 151 Pokemon for it in 2016 and returned with four Pokemon in our Gen II Tribute and another stunning 16! of the 135 Gen III Pokemon, making her the direct “rival” of Yggdrassal, the only other artists in our community who ever contributed 16 Pokemon for one of the Generation tributes!

She is also one of the GA-HQ Patreon Supporters and helps me to create the galleries by writing the descriptions of many of the Pokemon and the illustrated moves and abilities 🙂 

You can see a lot of drawn art but also crafted items and even cosplay in her gallery here!


“The user howls loudly to raise its spirit, boosting its Attack stat.”

Howl is a non-damaging Normal-type move that was firstly introduced in gen III that raises the user’s attack stat by one stage. It has a very high 40 PP and can even be bulked up to 64!

This move does not make contact so it’s not affected by moves and abilities such as Magic Coat and Protect. Numel learns the Howl move by being bred with another Pokemon, such as Mightyena or Manectric that also know the move.

#322 Numel

“Numel stores magma of almost 2,200 degrees F within its body. If it gets wet, the magma cools and hardens. In that event, the Pokémon’s body grows heavy and its movements become sluggish.”

Numel is a dual Fire/Ground type Pokémon that debuted in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald.  Trotting on all fours in volcanic areas, it evolves into Camerupt at Level 33.

Despite being modeled after the camel ridden by many desert riders; the hump of the Numel is not the kind of thing you would wish to sit on. Instead of storing fat like a camel, it stores magma. When the internal temperatures of the Pokemon rise, the magma erupts from the hump on its back. As it starts out it only has one hump. But when it evolves into Camerupt it develops two.

Like many fire Pokemon, the temperature of Numel is controlled by external forces such as the climate or attack from other Pokemon. When the temperature is lowered, the Pokemon becomes sluggish. It also slows down when hungry. And by nature it is a rather dull-witted Pokemon not in possession of any signs of remarkable intelligence. It can’t even notice when it is being hit.
