User First Used In Notes
  Noivern's body becomes surrounded by a light-blue aura as the inside of its ears glows light blue and blue static appears on both sides of its ears. Noivern then sends a swirly supersonic wave of light blue aura towards the opponent, which becomes straight as it is about to hit the opponent; or, Noivern's ears glow white and it then fires a blast of powerful white sound waves from them at the opponent; or, the inside of Noivern's ears glow white and a ball of white light appears in front of its ears. It then launches powerful sound waves from the white ball at the opponent.
