User First Used In Notes
571 Zoroark Zoroark's eyes glow light blue and its body becomes surrounded by a crimson aura. It then raises its arms above its head. When it does, the aura around its forearms gets thicker. It then slams its arms down into the ground. A pink and crimson glowing forcefield of energy appears from the aura around Zoroark's arms and grows larger, spreading all around it. The thicker the aura is around Zoroark's arms, the more powerful the attack becomes.

Zorua then brings its paws down to the ground and a pink and crimson forcefield of energy appears around Zorua's body and expands outwards throughout the whole battlefield.
