As a result of his evolution, the black head of his tail and his main head have merged. This synchronisation strengthens her psychic powers, allowing her to emit waves through her antennae. Her second head also acts as a protective helmet for her main head when she closes her jaw. Farigiraf can thus inflict heavy physical damage by hitting her enemies with her head.

This Pokémon brings two new talents to the game : Ruminant and Caudal Armour. Ruminant allows a Pokémon to eat a berry a second time after having already consumed it on the previous turn. Caudal Armor, on the other hand, prevents opposing Pokémon from using priority abilities.

Ampibidou is a Pokémon from Électrik type. By extending and contracting its elastic body, it can create energy from the yellow organ on its belly. This organ is able to create a phenomenal amount of electricity which is then projected by the two organs on the sides of his head which look like eyes. Yes, because his real eyes are small and yellow and are located in the centre of his face, just above his mouth.

Ampibidou comes into the game with a new talent that is Grecharge. This allows him to charge himself with electricity when attacked, increasing the power of his next Electrik ability. He also has the Statik talent.
