Seeker: Birkal

Scraggy (M)
Just before he left, my dad gave this Pokemon when I was just a runt. He said some of his friends found it while spelunking in deep caves. The little guy's skin is a weird, opaque white; he must have spent a lot of time in the dark. It's taken a while, but he's finally warmed up to me. I can't wait to see what he can do in battles.

Nature:
Brave (+1 Atk, -15% Speed, -10% Evasion)

Type:
Fighting: Fighting STAB; ignore weight restrictions on Circle Throw, Seismic Toss, Sky Drop, Storm Throw, Submission, and Vital Throw. Superior reaction time in close quarters.

Dark: Dark STAB; immunity to all telepathic and telekinetic attacks, better performance in all darkened and especially twilight conditions. Can use any Dark-type attack regardless of Attraction.

Abilities:
Shed Skin (Innate): This Pokemon regularly sheds its skin and any impurities contained in its body. If afflicted with a status condition, this Pokemon has a 33% chance of removing all status conditions at the end of a round.

Moxie (Innate): This Pokemon gets psyched after it earns a KO on an opposing Pokemon, increasing its attack by one (1) stage. This boost is maintained at the end of each round.

Intimidate (DW) (Locked) (Innate): When this Pokemon initially goes out into the battlefield, it generates an intimidating roar or war cry that shakes all opponents on the battlefield, reducing their Attack stage by one (1). The attack drop is maintained at the end of each round. If an opponent switches in a new Pokemon, Intimidate can be activated again as a Command, and will affect all opponents.

Abilities:
Scrappy (Innate): This Pokemon’s Normal and Fighting attacks carry a special signature that can damage Ghosts, even if they have phased out.

Prankster (Innate): The Pokemon is always prepared for engaging in sneaky tactics and trickery, giving its non-damaging attacks an increase in priority level.

Vital Spirit (DW) (Locked) (Innate): This Pokemon has a high vitality and alertness making it immune to sleep induced by other Pokemon.

Awesome work, Scraggy! Now let's try something else... Hmm...



Come on back, and let's switch in Scratchet. I'm curious if Ullar's up for a counterswitch.
