Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Wood Hammer is Trevenant's first move. It is obtained by evolving at level 5 and upgrading Will-O-Wisp into it instead of Curse. The user pulls back its arms and attacks, dealing damage to enemies in the area of effect and pulls them in front of the user, leaving them unable to act for .5s. If this attack deals damage to at least one enemy, a follow-up attack will be available for 5s. This follow-up attack slams down a giant wooden hammer in front of the user, dealing damage to any enemy it hits, and leaving them unable to act for .6s. The lower the user's HP, the longer the enemy will be left unable to act. Every time this move is used, it consumes 10% of the user's current HP. At level 11, enemies hit by the second hammer have their damage reduced by 20% for 3s.
