Ariados Crawls Out!

This creepy crawly will be the Pokemon-equivalent of Mario's Piranha Plant for just how bizarre it is, but oddly fits. This will be a Pokemon that puts the agile into fragile. Despite it being a featherweight, it has a dash speed of 1.937, two jumps, can wall climb, crawl, and has the signature feature to climb ceilings. So if it can jump onto a ceiling, it will crawl the surface, but cannot climb to the top of the stage.

Side Special: Ariados sprays a stream of venom that is gravity affected, this venom does no damage but instead lowers the damage output of anyone hit by this stream for five seconds

Up Special: Ariados shoots a string upwards that can be tilted in multiple angles, with this web doing one of three things based on what it hits. If it hits a target, it webs them up where they are much slower and unable to attack until the webs are removed. These webs are immediately removed when hit by an attack move, or if the target mashes the A or B buttons enough to struggle out. If it hits an item, then it reels it for the user to use immediately upon return. When it hits a ceiling, it reels itself up to the ceiling. Now this web can be destroyed with 15% worth of damage, leaving the item to fall, or Ariados to go in freefall. Now the reeling in takes a few seconds depending on the length of the string.
