Adopted from the Adoption Center.
Evolved at the Evolution Dojo
Changed Ability from Snow Cloak to Moody at the Pokemon Development Facility.

NEW SIGGY: Flash Freeze
Description: How does one weaponize freezing breath in a battle? Froslass, by nature, can freeze pray with -58 degree farenheit breath. This was a no-brainer, though she hadn't battled with anyone...Yet.

However, before she DID battle with anyone, she figured out that she REALLY hated such moves that got to her before she could move herself. Priority Moves, they were called, like Aqua Jet, Quick Attack, Vaccum Wave...She was irritated by such annoyances. Especially Shadow Sneak, a Ghost-Type Move that quite frankly hurt a b**chton. How did she overcome them? Simple. By being faster, immobilizing them, and proceeding to beat the s**t out of them. She honed her icy breath, channeling it forward to freeze targets at speeds to prevent Priority moves being a factor. It took a few days, but sucess was inevitable when she got a Pokemon starting to use Quick Attack (with little visible warning beforehand) Frozen before it moved. Sucess.

This move is simple to describe: Pandora unleashes frosty breath from her mouth (*Le gasp!*) at speeds that outstrip such annoyances as Quick Attack. Whatever her target is, it will be frozen, immobile, a sitting duck: Perfect for rapid hits with Ice-Type Attacks (and come on, who would thaw under consistent pressure from them?). She loves this move...Though it makes her think of food, considering this IS the way all Froslass find and immobilize prey.

Base Power: What is this nonsense? Flash Freeze is of no power.
Accuracy: 95%
Classification: Status.
Energy Mod: 4%
Priority: 2
Effect: Target is Frozen. Really. That's it.
Usage Gap: She can't use this for three actions after this is used.

Pandora, you must have a SIGNATURE MOVE! This shall be it.
Heheh, this is nice. Approv'd. [1/2]

Ability: Sturdy
Obtained: Adoption Center
Evolved: Evolution Dojo

Sig Move: Stone Sheild


Despriction: Foretress are capable of employing the move Stealth Rock. Barricade, being the defensive minded mon he is, has tried to figure out a way to use it to protect himself with the levitating rocks. After some experimentation, he managed to figure it out. After using the rocks to surround himself instead of the opponent, he makes the rocks orbit in a hemisphere (or full sphere, if he's in the air), weakening attacks from afar and occasionally preventing close quarters attacks from working, causing the opponent damage instead.
Type: Rock
Base Power: None
Accuracy: If I really have to provide this, I will have to ask you if I'm allowed to bang my forehead on the wall repeatedly first.
Classification: Status.
Energy Mod: 8%
Priority: 0
For two rounds, if the target attacks
  • With a move that makes contact- Roll a 10 sided die. If roll is one or two, the attack fails, and the target sustains half normal Stealth Rock damage instead.
  • If the target attacks with a non contact move- Move is weakened to 75% normal base power. However, if the type of the move is a type Rock resists (eg Flying), this is reduced to 50% instead.
  • Barricade loses 2 energy for every round this is up.

Usage Gap: This move cannot be used if it is in effect.


[Virgo] Gothitelle (F)
Ability: Shadow Tag
Obtained: Here
Evolved: Here
Tutored Move: Cosmic Power
Sig Move: Shadow Bind

Despriction: Gothitelle (in ASB) have Shadow Tag. Virgo realized a while back that the entire body of anything is covered in much shadow, depending on body shape and the like. Ergo, Virgo decided to try using her Shadow Tag in a way that would, instead of just trapping the opponent, it traps the opponent's shadows to each other, hindering movement.
Type: Dark (SHADOW Bind? It's kinda in the name)
Base Power: None
Accuracy: 95%
Classification: Status.
Energy Mod: 10%
Priority: 0
  • Target speed goes down three stages while the move is in effect.
  • Moves that require contact are reduced to 1/4 power.
  • The effect lasts for 5 actions
Usage Gap: She can't use this for one round after its effect concludes.
For the first one: Fix the word 'shield' and you're good. [1/2]
For the second: Heheh, Ergo, Virgo. This one's really interesting and creative; Velo likes. [1/2]

And for the record, you're allowed to bang your head against the wall whenever you want. ;)
I laughed, I cried, I testified;
And in the end found this world altogether lacking.

Thanks, Speed and Dino and also Speed! :D
