Dragon Pulse is an energy wave technique used by Retzorg and a large sum of Pokémon. The technique originated as a move of the same name from Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl Version.

OverviewEdit

The Dragon Pulse takes the form of a grey, grey-and-blue, or red-and-blue shockwave that is fired from the user's mouth or hands; in Retzorg's case, the wave is cast from a magic wand, implying that, unlike the Pokémon who use the technique, it may lack the natural ability to use Dragon Pulse. The attack is charged briefly before being launched.

Retzorg uses the Technique.

It is used by Retzorg in its battle with the "Quake Golem," a character that has only ever appeared in said battle, in which case it is powerful enough to dislodge the (false) Chaos Emeralds from the Quake Golem's underside. In the Pokémon series, the move has a power of either 90 or 85, depending on the game, never misses unless there is an external reason increasing the chance of it missing, and is Dragon-type and Special-category. This means that targets that are dragons take double damage from Dragon Pulse, metallic opponents take half damage, and opponents that are faeries are completely immune to the technique.

TriviaEdit

  • When Retzorg used the technique, Generation IV was the latest Generation of Pokémon games, meaning that its modern red-and-blue animation had not yet been introduced and the move still had a power of 90.
  • In the Pokémon games, Dragon Pulse has the highest base power of all Special Dragon-type moves with an accuracy of 100.
    • While Draco Meteor is the most powerful Dragon-type move, at 130 Power, its Accuracy is slightly lower, at 90.

Other possible usesEdit

Presumably, any character who is a dragon (or Dragon-like) could potentially learn to use this technique. If this ever actually manifests is unlikely at best, considering most RPers who have moved away from SPORE since are reletively serious, and using a pokemon move would be a bit silly. The same is likely true of other dragon type moves, including Outrage and Draco Meteor.
