Abilities

Passive Ability

 
Infiltrator
すりぬけ Slip Through
Description

When the Pokémon with this Ability deals damage to opposing Pokémon, its next attack partially ignores the opposing Pokémon's Sp. Def. This effect can stack up to 8 times maximum.

Basic Attack

  Damage category: Physical (as a basic attack)
Damage category: Special (as a boosted attack)
Description

Becomes a boosted attack whenever a set amount of time passes, dealing damage to opposing enemies it hits, decreasing their movement speed, and leaving them burned.


Litwick swings its head down and launches a flame for the basic attack. The boosted attack has the same animation, but sends out a stream of fire.

Lampent swings its arms for its basic attack. For the boosted attack, it thrusts outward with both arms to send out the stream of fire.

Chandelure is similar to Lampent, however for the boosted attack it also uses the flame on its head

When a flame hits an opposing Pokémon, the user gains one heat energy.

Unite Move

  Ignite Midnight
'
'
Learned at Lv. 9
  Hindrance
  Area
Description
The user seals the area around itself in darkness and obscures opposing Pokémon's vision for a short time. If this Unite Move is used again, the user continuously fires a beam of fire in a designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits. The beam can be directed while fired, and its final blast deals increased damage.

Unite Move Effect: Shield granted. Movement speed increased for a short time.

Effect: The beam is directed via the movement controls, not the attack controls. The vision obscured effect has a unique visual effect where three flames appear on each side of the screen, disappearing as a countdown before the effect concludes. A effect duration dictates the time that the beam is allowed to be fired. Using the beam counts as using a Unite Move for the Buddy Barrier and Energy Amplifier.
