Welcome back to the Lab! Today I would like you to meet Moldrill!#019 MoldrillGround/Steel TypeMole PokemonOn evolution, it appears that the mechanical drilling equipment has merged with the Pokemon itself, creating the formidable powerhouse that is Moldrill! The drills it now has for hands can spin incredibly fast, a technique it employs often in battle to tear foes to pieces. Another added bonus of it's new metal "skin" is the weight it provides. This means that Moldrill can hold it's ground against even the toughest of attacks.
Despite being rather heavy, Moldril is unbelievably fast when traveling underground.From the little we have seen, it seems that Moldrill lays on its belly, with its arms stretched forward, allowing them to power through the earth ahead. In colonies, it appears that Moldrill coordinate groups of Terill and Termole, ordering them to extend certain tunnels, or in some cases, cut them off to block other Pokemon entering.
Just like its lower forms, Moldrill keeps its foe in the fight with Arena Trap and attacks powerfully with moves such as Iron Head, Earthquake, Crunch and it's own signature move Drill Drive. Drill Drive is a 70 power Steel attack with a small chance of making the foe flinch. However, it isn't completely accurate and may miss more than occasionally.
Tomorrow sees us go from the fearsome Moldrill to a much cuter Pokemon, and a favourite of Rain's. So join us then to meet the adorable Cotlyon!
Thanks again to Rain!
