Down B - Spikes - Sprays spiky objects under Qwilfish that stick to the ground until an opponent hits them for decent damage. Only 3 layers of spikes are able to be on the map at one time

Fountain of Qwilfish - A large, but basic flat gry ground with a large lake in the background. While there are no direct hazards on the map, various Water type Pokemon will attack the players from the background with water attacks. Some of these Pokemon include Qwilfish, Vaporeon, Wailord, Golduck, Octillery, Politoad and Manaphy (rare appearance). Various trainers make appearances walking by the lake and watching the Pokemon play in the lake including Hugh, Steven, Skyla, Elesa, Misty and Marlon.
