Abilities

Passive Ability

 
Magician
マジシャン Magician
Description

In battles where the map is divided into an ally team side and an opposing team side, this Ability creates a hole under one of the Berries on the opposing team’s side (chosen at random) and warps it to right in front of Hoopa. If there are no Berries on the opposing team’s side but there is Aeos energy on the ground, then some energy is warped in front of Hoopa instead. In the event that no Berries from the opposing team's side are warped, the cooldown until this ability’s next use is reduced.

Basic Attack

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

Becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon by unleashing a beam of light. When Hoopa is unbound, it unleashes beams of light with every basic attack, dealing damage to up to two nearby opposing Pokémon.

  Hindrance
  Dash
Description
Has the user create a ring under itself and warp to the designated location, dealing damage to nearby opposing Pokémon at that location and shoving them. Hoopa then shoots sinister flames that deal damage to opposing Pokémon they hit and decrease their movement speed for a short time. If this move is used again within a set amount of time, the user returns to the initial location it warped from. Ally Pokémon that are linked by Trick can also warp to the initial ring's location. When they do so, they recover HP.

Upgrade: Makes the user invincible for a short time when this move is used.

  Shadow Ball
シャドーボール
Shadow Ball
Learned at Lv. 6
Cooldown: 4.5 seconds
Upgrades into Shadow Ball+ at Lv. 12
  Ranged Description
Has the user unleash a shadowy blob in a forward direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and decreasing their movement speed and Sp. Def for a short time. If the user then hits the same opposing Pokémon with a move or boosted attack within a set amount of time, it deals additional damage to the opposing Pokémon and leaves them unable to act for a short time. When using this move, if there is a nearby ally Pokémon linked by Trick, this move will also unleash a shadowy blob at the same target from that ally's location.

Upgrade: The shadowy blob will now explode before it disappears. Opposing Pokémon hit by the explosion are affected as if they were hit by the shadowy blob itself.

Move slot 2

  Confusion
ねんりき
Willpower
Learned at Lv. 1 or 3
Cooldown: 9 seconds
Upgrades into Hyperspace Hole or Trick
  Ranged Description
Has the user unleash a telekinetic force in the designated direction, dealing damage to the first opposing Pokémon it hits. The telekinetic force clings to that Pokémon and then causes a delayed explosion. The explosion deals damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreases their movement speed for a short time.
  Hyperspace Hole
いじげんホール
Interdimensional Hole
Learned at Lv. 4
Cooldown: 12 seconds
Upgrades into Hyperspace Hole+ at Lv. 10
  Dash Description
Hoopa creates a large ring at the designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect. After a set amount of time, Hoopa and any ally Pokémon in the area of effect will return to their base, and their movement speed will be increased for a short time. Ally Pokémon that return to their base in this manner must wait a short time before the HP recovery from being in their base triggers. These ally Pokémon can also warp back to where the large ring was created. An intact ally forward goal zone can also be designated as the location where the large ring is created. Creating the ring on the forward goal zone of the top path will also create a ring on the forward goal zone of the bottom path, and vice versa. All ally Pokémon, including Hoopa, can use these rings to warp between the two goal zones, and their movement speed will be increased for a short time after warping. After an ally Pokémon warps, there is a set cooldown before that ally can use these rings again. If a path's forward goal zone is destroyed, the middle goal zone on the same path will take its place. This move cannot be used on base goal zones.

Upgrade: Also increases the movement speed of ally Pokémon near the ring when they are heading toward it.

Cooldown: 7.5 seconds
Upgrades into Trick+ at Lv. 10
  Buff Description
Hoopa creates a link between itself and an ally Pokémon using a ring, increasing both of their movement speeds and granting them each a shield for a short time. When Hoopa uses Shadow Ball or performs a basic attack, the ring on the linked Pokémon also unleashes the same move or attack. Hoopa can also use this move on itself, increasing Hoopa’s movement speed and granting itself a shield for a while. Additionally, it increases the damage dealt by Shadow Ball.

Upgrade: Also restores the linked ally Pokémon’s HP when it deals damage to opposing Pokémon.
