User First Used In Notes
528 Swoobat Swoobat opens its mouth and releases a high-pitched note from its mouth, causing red, green or blue circles to come out of its mouth. The opponent then holds its ears in pain. As the circles fly towards the opponent, they grow bigger. The attack is much more powerful when used in a group.

556 Maractus Maractus opens its mouth and sings a note. As it does, multiple green, red, or blue rings come out of its mouth at the opponent. As the circles fly towards the opponent, they grow bigger.
