Frillish Jellicent Effect
The user creates an intimidating purple eye or uses its own glowing red eyes to glare at the opponent. The move's power increases if the opponent is affected by a status affliction.
Pokémon Method
User First Used In Notes
592 Frillish Frillish's eyes start to glow purple and light red and it holds its tentacles up in the air. Multiple beams of black energy outlined in dark purple emerges from the tips of both of Frillish's tentacles and float into the air above it. The black energy then meets in the air above it. Once it does, Frillish lowers its tentacles and the trailing black energy disappears from its tentacles. The black energy then combines and forms into a round black ball of energy with multiple branches of black energy coming off it. In the middle, an eye with a red iris and an indigo sclera forms. The eye then releases multiple light blue, magenta and dark blue rings of energy at the opponent. If the opponent is confused, the attack does double damage.
