Team Mowtom

Swinub [Hoth] (F)

Hoth is cold. Very cold. She comes from a world perpetually frozen over and has internalized that cold, taking it with her wherever she goes. She even figured out how to weaponize that in combat, which she thought was an extreme accomplishment before learning about Ice-types. At which point she felt just a little warmer inside to learn there were others like her.

Type: Ice / Ground
  • Ice STAB; immune to Hail damage, freeze status, and Sheer Cold. Frost Command.
    • Frost Command: For the next six (6) actions, this Pokemon's Ice moves will have triple the freeze chance. Type Exclusive commands can only be used by Pokemon that are naturally that type, and are still available if the Pokemon changes type.
      Command Type: Type Exclusive | Accuracy: -- | Energy Cost: 5 | Priority: 0 | CT: None
  • Ground STAB; immune to Sandstorm. Ignores Arena restrictions on Dig and Seismic Attacks for Arenas in which any land mass exists, Evasive Digging reduced from 6 per action Energy Cost to 5 per action.
Abilities: Oblivious / Snow Cloak / Thick Fat (Locked)
  • This Pokemon is incapable of being affected by Attract, Cute Charm, Captivate, or Taunt.
  • This Pokemon is used to snowy blizzard conditions and gains a 20% evasion boost during Hail. Pokemon with this ability are immune to Hail damage.

Numel [Eidechse von Feuer der Menschenfleischfressende] (M)

Say it with me: I-DECK-SUH VON FOY-ER, DARE MEN-SHEN FLYSH-FRESS-ENDUH. When Bianca heard his name spoken out loud, she was fascinated. Nothing from that point on could stop her from approaching Eidechse von Feuer der Menschenfleischfressende and asking him to travel with her. He agreed, and somehow managed to remember said agreement. Bianca says that Eidechse von Feuer der Menschenfleischfressende is okay with being called Eddie, but what's the fun in that?

Type: Fire / Ground
  • Fire STAB; immune to burn status. Brighten Command.
    • Brighten Command: For the next six (6) actions, all this Pokemon's attacks will have their accuracy increased by one stage. Type Exclusive commands can only be used by Pokemon that are naturally that type, and are still available if the Pokemon changes type.
    Command Type: Type Exclusive | Accuracy: -- | Energy Cost: 5 | Priority: 0 | CT: None
  • Ground STAB; immune to Sandstorm. Ignores Arena restrictions on Dig and Seismic Attacks for Arenas in which any land mass exists, Evasive Digging reduced from 6 per action Energy Cost to 5 per action.
Abilities: Oblivious / Simple / Own Tempo (Locked)
  • This Pokemon is incapable of being affected by Attract, Cute Charm, Captivate, or Taunt.
  • This Pokemon innately exaggerates the effect of stat boosts and drops to the point where they have double the effectiveness and thus double the stage modifier (e.g. Swords Dance boosts Attack by four (4) stages, Bulk Up boosts Attack and Defense by two (2) stages each). Stat boosts and drops still maximize at six (6) stages.

Colosshale [Jordan] (F)

When Bianca learned that Pokemon can play basketball, she decided to go watch a game. Jordan was by far the best player on the field thanks to her rebounding ability. Now, with Bianca, she uses her rebounding talents on the battlefield to a quite different effect.

Type: Dark / Water
  • Dark STAB; ignores Attract and Confusion status entirely when using Dark-type damaging and non-damaging attacks.
  • Water STAB; Ignores arena restrictions on Water attacks that require an external water source. Evasive Diving reduced from 6 per action Energy Cost to 5 per action.
Abilities: Rebound / Storm Drain / Flare Boost (Locked)
  • The Pokemon is able to bounce one layer of an entry hazard back from their side of the field to the other side with their immense strength and intuition.
    • Command: Activate Rebound (target hazard layer) - 5 En - Removes a layer of hazards from the user's side of the field. Places a layer of the same type on the opponent's field. In battles with more than two teams, the user must target a team to Rebound to.
  • This Pokemon lures all water attacks to itself, altering their course away from partner Pokemon. It absorbs the water and increases its Special Attack by one (1) stage. If this ability was triggered by an opponent's attack, the natural stage is adjusted.
