If we wanna keep the negative priority then we can say it makes the opponent more skittish the next action? Definitely not 3, though, that's far too powerful.
Hmmmm. What about two actions? Three does seem a little long, but only preventing one action basically just makes it a weird, less useful Protect. (Plus I just think it's a really cute idea, and definitely more interesting than some vague "startles the opponent".)

Thanks! I've fixed the first two, though I'm leaving the weather abilities alone for now; iirc weather duration is another thing we wanted to hammer down, and would probably merit its own thread.
