So far it looks like Heliolisk and Helioptile are going to know a new move in PvP called Parabolic Charge, which costs 55 energy and does an underwhelming amount of damage (some sources say 25 and others 65). Heliolisk also will know Thunderbolt which does 90 for 55 energy, so it looks like Parabolic Charge will be useless.
That is, unless Niantic makes it do what it does in the main series, which is restore the user’s HP by half the damage dealt to the opponent. This mechanic would be a first for Pokémon GO, but would be especially beneficial to Heliolisk since it’s a low HP glass cannon. In particular it’d be an excellent move to use against high-STA, low-DEF tanks, particularly those weak to Electric like Drifblim, Lapras and Walrein.
That would be a fairly daring move for Niantic, but it’d certainly make things more interesting if they introduced a new mechanic. It’s likely they would nerf it though (maybe it would heal 20% of the damage dealt instead of half). Do you think we’ll end up seeing this?
