Effective against flying foes. If unit is not
adjacent to an ally, inflicts Atk/Def-X on foe
during combat (X = 5 + any current penalty
on each of those stats; example: if foe has -7
penalty to Atk, inflicts Atk-12, for a net penalty
of Atk-19 during combat; calculates each stat
penalty independently).
