Description

If the goal scoring button is held down, the Pokémon with this Ability has its sword charged with Aeos energy, and for a short time, its basic attacks become boosted attacks. In addition, during the effect duration, the Pokémon can use a boosted version of one of its moves once. The longer the goal scoring button is held down, the more Aeos energy is charged into the sword, lengthening the duration of the boost effect on basic attacks and moves. This Ability goes on cooldown after it's triggered. Boosted basic attacks have an increased area of effect and deal additional damage proportional to the opposing Pokémon's HP. When this Pokémon knocks out or assists in knocking out a Pokémon on the opposing team, that Pokémon will drop more Aeos energy than it normally would.
