#29 What dreams are made of

News, Boss battles, pet spotlight, a small race to the finish update, and wtf is Ben dreaming about??



Boss Battles:
Courageous Yon  35, 73 in a cave in Kun-Lai Summit

Bleat (goat) - beast type

  • Bleat -A critter type attack.  Bleat sings an inspiring song restoring health to all allies
  • Chew - In this critter type attack, Bleat eats some grass and on the next round will deal critter damage.  This move can deal damage while Bleat is not the active pet.
  • Stampede - A stampede starts causing critter damage.  After you are hit with stampede, you take double damage for 2 rounds.  The stampede occurs for 3 rounds total.

Lapin (rabbit) - critter type (Lapin is french for rabbit. That is the extent of my french knowledge.)

  • Adrenaline Rush - A critter attack that causes damage and increases its speed by 75% for 3 rounds
  • Burrow - Everyone’s favorite beast type attack.  Lapin will burrow underground for a round and pop back out to attack on the next.
  • Flurry - A critter attack that hits 1-2 times unless Lapin is faster than your pet which will cause it to hit an additional time

Piqua (funky chicken thing) - flying type

  • Squawk - A flying type move that lets out a loud squawk dealing damage and reducing the damage you deal by 25% for 3 rounds
  • Lift-Off - Another flying type move that has Piqua flying up into the air making it unattackable then it’ll fly back down and attack you on the next round.
  • Flock - The last flying type move causing flying type damage for 3 rounds.  If you are stuck in the flock you’ll take double damage for 2 rounds.
