Summary

Only works if the user was hit by a physical move earlier this action.

Description

The user readies the flint-striking spikes on its back, then turns its shell to its enemies, or to other point from which it may be attacked. If the user is then struck by a physical move, that move will push the spikes and thus cause the unstable chemicals inside the user's shell to react violently, exploding out of the user's stomach and into a stream of fireballs that blasts all of the user's opponents. If no physical moves land against the user on the turn when it set up the Shell Trap, however, it will shift its spikes back to a safer position as it fails to unleash the explosive attack on that action.
