Perish Song

Perish Song (NO) -- The user sings a haunting song, during which the course of the battle will certainly be affected. The move must be used for 3 full rounds in order to be complete, with the user singing the entire time. During this time, the victim(s) are slowly incapacitated. Sleeping Pokemon will automatically be woken up by the melody. Black lightning crackles through its victims during the process of the attack, as long as it is successful. During the first full round of Perish Song, there is a 50% chance of each victim breaking free and being able to attack. During the second full round, there is a 30% chance, and the third round holds a 20% chance of each victim breaking free. These percentages are modified by energy and level as usual, at the referee´s discretion. Once the user of Perish Song loses concentration, the move fails. If the user sings for the full 3 rounds, the affected Pokemon and the user faint. The Pokemon who would be deemed affected by this attack must be able to hear the attack clearly and be close to the user (within a normal battling distance).


Does the chance of breaking out of Perish Song apply to both the user and the victim? Does the chance of breaking out of Perish Song need to be re-RNGd each round the move is used? Is the user of Perish Song locked into the move so to speak until it faints? If a Pokemon RNG'd out of the lightning hold, does Perish Song no longer affect it, no matter what?

So, if Victim broke it out the first round, would User be forced to use Perish Song the next round? Also, would Victim need to be reRNG'd for Perish Song?

The way I read it:
  • The breaking out chance only applies to the victim, as the user won't randomly lose concentration. Obviously, in DTs the victim's partner can break the user's concentration.
  • The chance is RNGed each round (but this is unclear, and I could well be wrong here).
  • The user is not "locked into" Perish Song per se, but must sing until the move fails/is completed. So it can use other moves once the move finishes, if it fails. Clearly, if it succeeds, the user can't attack more as it faints.
  • Once the user breaks out of Perish Song, that's it. It is no longer affected by the attack, unless it is used again.

Once again, it's my interpretation, and I could be completely wrong.

I was under the impression that a Pokemon, once broken out of the attack, was free of the lightning for the remainder of the attack. However after 3 rounds it can still faint.

A question though, what if the Pokemon didn't hear the full 3 rounds? Safeguard etc block out sound; if Safeguard was up for a full round, would it keep the Pokemon conscious? Same with Bide and its OHKO clause potentially preventing a KO in the third round?

Safeguard/bide should, I think, both block it. The user isn't forced to keep using perish song even if the opponent doesn't break out.

Personally curious as to how it interacts with the Charizard species characteristic.

Here's how it goes:

Each round, the foe will be RNG'd. Every time it gets a number within the threshold for that round (i.e. 50%, 30%, 20% based on the round), they are unable to act for that round. If they get it outside of that threshold, they can attack. If the singing goes on past 3 rounds, both Pokemon do faint, regardless of whether or not the bond over the foe has been broken. However, the singing requires total concentration, and if the foe is attacked or otherwise distracted, they can loose the song and the attack will fail. Other attacks can be used while in Perish Song but the user runs the risk of losing concentration and it will probably take quite a bit of extra energy. Other high-concentration attacks will either fail themselves or cause the song to fail, ref's discretion.

So... if a Pokemon breaks out, it could technically still faint through Perish Song? Or does the song stop as soon as the Pokemon breaks free?

The vague manner in which the description is written suggests that the fainting can still occur even if it breaks out.

If a Pokemon starts using Perish Song, must it keep using it until all three rounds are done? Sort of locking the trainers orders?

Can it be stopped once started by the user.

I see no reason why not.
