Shelgon using Dragon Breath by GaiaNex

The second last Pokemon Illustration in our Gen II Tribute (Celebi using Heal Bell) came from the GA-HQ Newcomer Gaianex who is a big fan of cartoons as well as the Pokemon games. He returned with not less than four more illustrations in our Generation III Tribute in 2018 and is a part of our just-announced Gen IV Tribute as well!


He draws really a ton of cute stuff including more video game fan art which you can see here!

Dragon Breath

“The user exhales a mighty gust that inflicts damage. It may also paralyze the target”

Dragon Breath is a Dragon-Type attack that was introduced in the Pokemon Generation II games. Besides damaging the opponent, it also has a 30% chance to inflict paralysis.  Shelgon from Gen III was the first Pokemon that used it in our series of art collaborations ^^


Shelgon using Endure by ArchaosTeryx

Archaos from the USA was one of the last new artists that joined our Pokemon Projects back in 2018. Her take on Wurmple was made in September, followed by her really cute Shelgon just a day before Halloween 🙂

Check out her whole gallery on deviantART where you can find a lot of fun stuff including more Pokemon, Nintendo themed, and many more artworks!


“The user endures any attack, leaving 1 HP. Its chance of failing rises if it is used in succession”

Like the Dragon Breath attack, Endure is another move that was introduced in the Generation II games and used by Shelgon in our Gen III Tribute. It’s a Normal-type move that does not inflict any damage but allows the Pokemon to endure a strong attack that would defeat it otherwise. It started with a Priority +2 in the Gen II games, which was upgraded two times to +4 now since the Gen V games. 




“Covering Shelgon’s body are outgrowths much like bones. The shell is very hard and bounces off enemy attacks. When awaiting evolution, this Pokémon hides away in a cavern”
