Summary

Base power doubles with each successful consecutive use.

Description

The user curls itself into a ball and encrusts its body in an outer layer of chilly ice. It then rolls forward, slowly, and plows into the opponent before rolling away again and circling around to gain more speed. This attack may be repeated up to five times, with the user picking up speed and increasing the toughness of its icy shell each time. For each time this attack successfully strikes in succession after the first, its base power is doubled, and if Defense Curl was used on the action before this attack began, its base power begins at 60 instead of 30.

Notes

The base energy of this attack also increases with its base power. The new base energy is calculated directly from the increased base power (as opposed to simply being multiplied by a power of 2).
