User First Used In Notes
085 Dodrio Dodrio opens its beaks and positions its heads so each beak becomes a corner in the shape of a triangle. An orb of energy then forms inside Dodrio's beaks, the right one colored green, the top one indigo and the left one red. A red triangle then forms in between the orbs. Once the triangle starts to turn indigo, Dodrio fires the triangle at the opponent.
