Exclusive Attack

Evolve Skiploom (Hoppip’s Evolution) during the event or up to two hours afterward to get a Jumpluff that knows the Charged Attack Acrobatics. Acrobatics is a Flying type move.

Acrobatics will have the following damage:

  • Trainer Battles: 110 damage
  • Gyms and raids: 100 damage

We’ll have a PvP analysis of this move available soon, sadly Jumpluff just isn’t big and beastly enough to really have an impact on PvE.
