It doesnt matter if hes being recharged or not. Its PK FLASH. If it touches you once. BAM. gameover.
He's also being healed at the same time. During Ionic drain, I've been shot at by like 5-8 rpgs, at least 17 ACRs, probably 2 miniguns, quite a few snipers, and a couple grenades (I love the mission maker), and that did not do Jack squat. And that was before Cole became the beast.
This is why its so hard to compare these things. They are from a rpg game no? which means turn based things with healing stuff and a bunch of bits that only work in their game becuase its turn based.
You right, it is pretty hard to compare them. Although once PK FLASH hits you yourdead. It doesnt matter if your healing at the same time. Its a OHKO.
Which is another thing. PK FLASH instant kills. So does Ionic drain. WHICH ONE WINS, NO ONE KNOWS.
Which is also why I prefer the all vs all to these little 1 on 1 matches. Two people might be fighting then one comes in to assist someone.
Actualy Ionic drain wouldnt be an insta kill move. It all depends on how much energy one has. In this case, ness and lucas could stand Ionic drain for a long while.
It insta kills most everyone. Now lets move to something like ionic freeze, ionic storm, or some of his other ionci moves....
