Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Spark is Zeraora's first move. It is obtained by reaching level 6 and upgrading Agility into it instead of Volt Switch. The user leaps in a selected direction, damaging all enemies in their path. If a basic attack is used before the leap ends, the user will jump to the closest enemy, dealing additional damage to the target. Holds 3 uses in reserve - after the first use the next use must be executed within 4s or this move goes on cooldown. The second use resets this timer. At level 12, 15% missing HP is restored if performing a basic attack before reaching the enemy.
