Stink Cloud is an ability that allows a creature to unleash a horrific stench in a set area around it. Any enemy units caught in this noxious gas will be significantly slowed down and will be unable to use ranged or artillery attacks for as long as it lasts. Also, any units within the Stink Cloud cannot be struck by ranged or artillery attacks from outside it. This ability does not affect flying creatures.
Stink Cloud is usually only seen in the lower research levels. This is because the Skunk's stats are poor, and when the Shield Bug is used in combinations the other creature's tail is generally more useful. However, it can serve as a decent counter to the Porcupine and Poison Frog's attacks, which are also commonly seen early in the game.
Stink Cloud is a triggered ability and will not be used unless a player commands it. The creature must also have enough endurance, which will be depleted upon using this ability. Stink Cloud can be upgraded to cover an area 25% larger than usual.
