Vibrava using Feint Attack by ImmortalTanuki

Game-Art-HQ Member Amanda “ImmortalTanuki” J. Belaire is a part of the Game-Art-HQ community since years and also likes to draw the many wild Pokemon out there. Due to kinda tragic circumstances she can’t draw like in the past though and has to use traditional tools like pencils now instead of working with digital components.

The results, however, are not worse in any form, instead, they became something special among the majority of digitally drawn illustrations I think. Freqrexy helped her to render /crop the artworks for our tribute actually so the kudos belong to both of them!


Please have a good look at Amanda’s full gallery here!

Feint Attack

“The user draws up close to the foe disarmingly, then hits without fail.”

The Feint Attack is a Dark-Type attack introduced in Generation III. Luring the victim in, the user attacks the opponent without fail as this attack is 100 percent accurate.

The only true way for an opponent to avoid it is when in Dig or Fly mode. And only in Generation III will the attack not trigger any status effects on the user should the opponent be capable of such effects like paralysis or poison on contact. Vibrava can learn Feint Attack from as early on as level 1.

Vibrava using Heat Wave 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 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!

Heat Wave

“The user exhales a heated breath on the foe to attack. It may also leave the target with a burn.”

Heat Wave is a Fire-Type attack introduced in Generation III. It hits all Pokemon in group battles and has a 10% chance of inflicting the opponent or opponents with Burn status.

The Heat Wave’s power went from 100 down to 95 in future generations, and it’s accuracy fell somewhat short as well. But its all-encompassing effects make it a valuable move. It can even destroy round rocks scattered throughout the game. The only way Vibrava can learn Heat Wave is through tutoring in the Sun and Moon games.

#329 Vibrava

“It looses ultrasonic waves by rubbing its wings together. Since a Vibrava’s wings are still in the process of growing, it can only fly short distances.”

Vibrava is a Ground/Dragon-Type Pokemon introduced in Generation III. It is the evolved form of the previously grounded Trapinch starting at level 35 to which it can then evolve into Flyong at level 45.

A more friendly-looking but no-less deadly version of it’s former Trapinch self, the Vibrava is still primarily a ground-dwelling Pokemon. Although it does have wings, they have yet to fully mature. As such it can only seem to levitate off the ground for certain periods of time but is incapable of flying great distances. The wings, however, do serve a major purpose in creating ultrasonic waves that can cause Pokemon to faint and humans to receive headaches.

Like Trapinch, the Vibrava lives in hot desert climates searching for food. It doesn’t rely on a sand trap like its previous form as it is becoming more of an active hunter. It will even preserve its prey in the desert sands. It certainly enjoys more freedom than the Trapinch and is only slightly more pretty looking. Only when evolved into Flygon can its true beauty and flight capabilities be revealed.
