Creating a Poor Chocobo[edit]

Poor Chocobo is an inherited template applicable only to chocobos that do not have the Wonderful Chocobo template.

No size or type change.

Hit Dice[edit]

Full Attack[edit]

Special Attacks[edit]

The chocobo loses the Chocobuckle ability. The chocobo gains the Lesser Chocobuckle ability, which functions as the Chocobuckle ability, except that it can only be used as a full attack action.

The chocobo's Choco Cure ability (if it has it) is replaced by Lesser Chocobo Cure, which functions as the Choco Cure ability except that it instead heals only 2d8 + one third the Chocobo's new HD.

If the Chocobo has Choco Acid, Choco Bolt, Choco Frost, Choco Meteor, or Choco Screech, those ability are replaced by their Lesser counterpart, which function exactly the same way except that they deal only 1d8 + one third the chocobo's new HD.
