Hello, and welcome to the Pokémon Attack Contest!  Where did I get the idea from?  Well, about a year ago, I was running a contest and used the criterion, "Create a card whose name is that of a Pokémon attack."  The people in the contest thought it was a clever idea, but I have not used it again since.  Recently, I figured that it might be a good time to make an ongoing contest for YMtC, and considering there are 467 attacks, I figure it might last a while.  Each round will be for a specific attack and rounds will last (hopefully) for 2 days.  You don't have to even like Pokémon to enjoy this contest-as long as you can convey the name well enough (in other words, top-down design), then you have a decent chance at winning the round.  Of course, you can incorporate other aspects of each move into your card.

In the next post, I'll have a leaderboard and a list of attacks that have already been rightfully claimed.  Good luck, and have fun!
Come check out my friend's youtube channel where he gives bad movies what's coming to them!

Absorb - GW
Instant
Target creature you control gains +2/+2 and lifelink until end of turn. Then tap that creature and target creature of an opponent's choice he or she controls. Each of those creatures deals damage equal to its power to the other.
Absorb Image.ashx?size=small&name=GW&type=symbolImage.ashx?size=small&name=GW&type=symbol
Instant
Destroy target artifact or enhantment. You gain life equal to its converted mana cost.
Some plants thrive not on water and sun, but on magical essence.

Boring, I know. But I couldn't think of anything else.

Also, predicting the next attack will be Acid.
A little bit of courage is the real magic.
Absorb - 1RRUU
Instant
Remove half the mana rounded down from target players mana pool, you choose which colour of mana to remove. Add that mana to your mana pool. That player takes damage equal to the amount of mana removed this way. 

Something about this wording seems completely awful to me, but hopefully you'll understand it. 

please post cards in my threads they are special places to me

All restraints upon man's natural liberty, not necessary for the simple maintenance of justice, are of the nature of slavery, and differ from each other only in degree. -Lysander Spooner - "Trial by Jury" (19th century)

If you are unhappy with the recent update, especially if you are leaving or are thinking of leaving, please email me at gameostasis@gmail.com so we can talk about a solution. 

Please feel free to copy this message into your sig.

Absorb 1W
Instant
Whenever a source deals damage to a creature, player, or planeswalker this turn, prevent X of the damage, where X is 1 plus the number of cards named Absorb in all graveyards.
Draw a card.
Absorb (2)(G/W)(G/W)
Instant
Target creature gains Absorb 2 until end of turn.
Sets that I am excited for: Worldwake Rise of the Eldrazi New Phyrexia Grixis Cube!!
Absorb 2GG
Sorcery
Sacrifice x lands. Put x times 2 +1/+1 counters on target creature.

It was simply a normal expression of the manner in which I generally voice my opinions and insights. My profligate expenditure of advanced vocabulary may deter some individuals, but I find that judicious use of an expanded lexicon leads to a more accurate expression of my viewpoint. I refuse to assuage those who are discouraged by my habitual verbal deluge by truncating my terminology and expression so as to align with their artless cant.

Choose two - All creatures you control gain lifelink until the beginning of the next end step; or target creature deals X damage to another target creature; or target creature gets -X/-X until the beginning of the next end step and another target creature gets +X/+X until the beginning of the next end step; or tap X target lands and add G to your mana pool for each land tapped this way.

Whenever an opponent would be dealt damage this turn, you may prevent that damage, then put a creature from your graveyard with converted mana cost less than or equal the damage prevented onto the battlefield.
Of course I'm not going to hurt you. At least not when I can put that energy to a more constructive use.

Mr. Whelp, just so you know, your card only works if your creature has first strike or another way to deal damage before something else, otherwise it does nothing in combat.

I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see. -Alice

I know that it does nothing in combat. It wasn't meant to. It was meant to allow the critters to avoid burn and other annoying things that kill them.

You could add a clause about mana burn. Like "At the end of the next step or phase, if you didn't spend this mana, it deals 1 damage to you" or something like that.

Grading time!

EpicLevelCommoner: I never really imagined Arena type effects as G/W.  I think it's reasonably balanced, though.
Silly dragons: It's balanced and fair, but you said it yourself-it's boring.
Ragnarokio: That tends not to work, since your opponent will generally spend whatever mana they produce as soon as they make it, and you can't respond to mana abilities.
blade5x: Me thinks you're taking the criterion far too literally.  Also, it's overcosted.
swampyrules1: Should say "as an additional cost to cast Absorb, sacrifice any number of lands."  This might be interesting at instant speed, since sorcery speed pump has a tendency to...well, suck.
Kablooie: I don't think it should be instant speed or cost 1, but I like the concept quite a bit.
13th Horseman: Well, this basically does exactly what the attack does.  It's balanced just fine.
Gardevior: I would have said rounded down for this one, since it's kind of odd to go from 3 counters, to 5 counters, to 8 counters.  I might have added an "end of turn" clause to the ability, too.  The mechanical concept is solid, though.
TheMilkman: You tried to fit just about every obvious usage of Absorb in card form, but it just ended up as a clunky, inelegant mess.
Dirdle: Maelstrom Pulse was already good, but now it needs to hit lands, too?
KunouNoHana: The flavor of it doesn't make much sense.  Why does attacking your opponent cause you to get a creature back?
Dragon Whelp: As was already pointed out, this card doesn't do much good.  Also, this is a white mechanical concept.  The wording needs a lot of work too.
Purple Shrimp: Mana burn or not, I like this card a lot.
Crouch: So, it's a super Test of Faith?  I'd have costed it at 2W, but it's solid and fits the theme of Absorb quite nicely.
Stigma Lasher: Needs to tell you whether to round up or down.  I don't really like it, mostly because counting what you already did at the end of your turn is kind of annoying.
turnip song: Hmm, seems kind of weak.  This would have been fine targetting any creature, since making it a blocking creature only limits its potential.

Ranking
1. Purple Shrimp
2. Kablooie
3. Crouch

Congratulations, Purple Shrimp!

Acid 2B
Instant
Target creature gets -3/-1 until the beginning of the end step, clash with an opponent, if you win the clash put a -1/-1 counter on that creature.
Oh God! It burns! It burns!

I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see. -Alice

Acid BB

Choose a creature. That creature can be targeted as if it didn't have any abilities until the beginning of the end step.

Choose one -- Chosen creature gets -2/-2 until end of turn; or cast a sorcery or instant card from your graveyard targeting the chosen creature (You still have to pay that card's mana cost).

I have found the secret of posting sigs! Kablooie's symbol Palette: 2U 
Acid | BR
Sorcery
Acid deals 3 damage to target creature. If that damage was nonlethal, put two -1/-1 counters on that creature.
Gardevior: I would have said rounded down for this one, since it's kind of odd to go from 3 counters, to 5 counters, to 8 counters.  I might have added an "end of turn" clause to the ability, too.  The mechanical concept is solid, though.

Wait what? I did say rounded down.
Acid 1BG
Instant
Put two -1/-1 counters on target creature. Until end of turn, spells and abilities that target that creature cost 2 less.

Wait what? I did say rounded down.


Yeah right, I know you ninja edited it! >_>

Acid 1BG
Instant
Choose a creature. Destroy all auras enchanting that creature and all equipment attached to that creature. Then, that creature gets -X/-X until end of turn, where X is 3 minus the number of permanents destroyed this way.
Would you rather lose a layer of armor or a layer of flesh?

Really wierdly worded, but whatever.
A little bit of courage is the real magic.
It's official: I own.
Card to come later

edit:

Acid 3B
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant creature
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a -1/-1 counter on enchanted creature.
Sacrifice Acid: Destroy all creatures with toughness equal to enchanted creature's toughness.

This definitely doesn't mean what you think it means.
I was referring to the painting The Treachery of Images.
I know.
Acid -
Sorcery
Until end of turn, if an effect would cause target player to discard one or more cards, it causes them to discard twice that many cards instead.
The burning is just the beginning.

I really hope I worded that correctly...and that it doesn't need some sort of complicated reminder text.
Acid 1BB
Artifact
B, Sacrifice ~: put three -1/-1 counters divided as you choose on up to three target creatures.
Even water can sometimes burn like fire.

Edit: After some thought, Mono, your criticism of my Absorb is reasonable - even though I was aiming to balance it against Maelstrom Pulse (by swapping power for flexibility), I forgot about Vindicate, which would have been a better starting line, I think.
To be honest, GW doesn't get a lot of design space other than super-efficient creatures and life-gain (or so it seems to me):

Acid - 1R
Enchantment - Aura
Flash
Enchant creature.
When Acid is attached to a creature, Acid deals 3 damage to that creature.
If a source would deal noncombat damage to enchanted creature, it deals that much damage plus 1 to that creature instead.
