Pumpkins: spooky. Whimsical. Gourds. Leave them out in the sun too long? That’s when they turn on you–and this one’s rotten to the core. The Rotting Jack O’Lantern was inhabited by a trickster spirit. It likes to play pranks and then vanish into the night before you even know what hit you. What’s that? You’re on fire? Well, too bad. The Rotting Jack O’Lantern will do anything for a good laugh.
In battle, a Rotting Jack O’Lantern is a fearsome magician, capable of blasting enemies with fireballs and boosting its own magic attack by burning extra MP each turn. A high-level Rotting Jack O’Lantern can use its weird ethereal body to completely negate physical attacks.
On the field, a Rotting Jack O’Lantern can shoot fire out of its hands, igniting flammable objects and lighting dark areas. Never again will you accidentally stub your toe on your chair when you get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night–just mind the smoke detector.
Good catch! I make that mistake way too often. Glad the Rotting Jack is getting some love! Halloween's around the corner, so it seemed like a good time to put this one up. I still have one more magic user left to unveil, so he'll get some company.
