Delta Counter
Delta using Payback

Move Effect:

Damage Retaliation



Counter, also known as Payback (ダメージ返し! Damage Return!), is a Status effect that lasts for two turns, and gives the Vivosaur a chance to deal damage that would have been done to it by an attack back at the attacking Vivosaur. It can be applied by the moves Payback, Enchanting Aura, and Karmic Aura, as well as by the Ability Counter Plus. Counter's usefulness has been dramatically increased from Fossil Fighters to Fossil Fighters: Champions. In Fossil Fighters, all Vivosaurs with Payback, called Counter Blow at the time, applied, with the exception of Squik, Squirk, Squirth, Squilk, and Squiro, have a 40% Counter rate, while Karmic Aura gave a 50% Counter rate to Squik, Squirk, Squirth, Squilk, and Squiro. In Fossil Fighters: Champions, the chance of a successful Counter has risen from 40% to 70%, and from 50% to 100%. It should be noted that non contact attacks, such as Tyrant's Roar, Toxic Ruin and Cyclone, are unable to be countered, despite the 100% Counter rate Karmic Aura now grants.
