A few things were changed up from the original, thanks to ConcealedLight's assistance, but not much.

Blaze originally gave melee attacks an additional 1d4 of fire damage, but was changed to simply change unarmed strikes to fire damage. Blazing Flame (which was originally titled "Blazing Kicks, Flaming Punches" (that's a mouthful)), simply granted proficiency in unarmed strikes, but was changed to a version of Savage Attacks that granted fire damage when the additional die was rolled.

Bounce may sound like a strange name for an ability, but it is based on a Pokemon move by the same name that allows the user to leap into the air for one turn then slam down on the opponent the next. Plus it's a flying move, and since Blaziken is a bird... As for why it scored a 0.5, this is because of how the feat "Athlete" was rated in User:ConcealedLight/Musicus_Expansion. Aside from the ASI, the three main perks of this feat was rated, collectively, a 1, and Bounce is pretty much a copy-paste of one of the perks of the feat. Because of this, I gave it a 0.5. --MetalShadowOverlord (talk) 03:07, 7 May 2018 (MDT)
