User First Used In Notes
452 Drapion Drapion grabs the opponent with its claws and its bottom fangs glow purple. The purple glow then moves down its arms, making the whole section glow as it does. When the glow reaches the last section, it skips the hands and the claws start to glow purple. Then, multiple purple sparks surround the claws as it tightens its grip on the opponent.
