Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
With ninja-like
agility and speed,
it can create the
illusion that
there is more
than one.
Leaps out of tall
grass and slices
prey with its
scythes. The move-
ment looks like
that of a ninja.
It slashes through
grass with its
sharp scythes,
moving too fast
for the human eye
to track.
When it moves, it
leaves only a
blur. If it hides
in grass, its pro-
tective colors
make it invisible.
It's very proud of
its speed. It
moves so fast that
its opponent does
not even know what
knocked it down.
