I’ve been using this bird for a little while now and I feel like it could use some improvements. First of all, it has the worst immunity. They usually cherry pick the immunities to make up for a specific creature’s weakness. How is swap prevention Phora’s weakness?
It can do sidestep every turn and cleanse anything. What is it meant to fight with that immunity? I don’t get it. I’m not sure if the devs fully understood this creature when it was created. It should be immune to stuns. Phora’s biggest weakness is being stunned. And the reason that is its biggest weakness is because the swap in stun sucks badly. If you swap in on a turn that someone is doing instant charge, and your swap in stun fails, you will take a hit and most likely get stunned. And then you will be locked for a swift death even though it is immune to swap prevention. It really doesn’t make sense to me.
And being stunned after using sidestep kinda defeats the whole purpose of it too.
Also, swap in stun is really bad. It’s a great move in theory, but it is devastating when it fails. Every other swap in is guaranteed to work, but swap in stun has the lowest percentage of anything in the game. It really needs a rework. It is bad and unreliable. I only go for it out of desperation. Otherwise, I don’t even attempt it.
Please give Phora the love it deserves, Ludia.
