Musicians have an ear for music and understand its finer intricacies. Musicians know how to pull your strings by plucking away at their own. By using the power of song, a Musician can use the songs they’ve learned (or perhaps even written themselves) to inspire those around them to perform at peak efficiency, or perhaps even break the fighting spirit of those who oppose them.

Mechanic: Several of the Musician’s features take place over the duration of multiple turns. When you use a Musician feature that does so, you may give up a Trainer Action on your turn in order to sustain the effect of the Feature. At the start of your turn, you may choose to end the effects of a Musician feature early as a Free Action.
If, during the course of a round, a Musician takes half of their Maximum HP in damage while using a Feature that lasts for multiple turns, at that point, and at any other time the Musician takes damage afterwards in the round, they must roll 1d20, adding their CON modifier. If the result is less than 15, the Musician’s feature ends immediately.

If the instrument a Musician decides to use requires that they use their mouth to perform, a Trainer will need to train each of their Pokemon to read cues issued through their music in order to simultaneously command them in battle, which requires two hours of one-on-one training plus 20 minutes times the difference between 4 and the Pokemon’s Intelligence Capability if there is one. (Just to clarify, Pokemon with Intelligence higher than 4 subtract that amount of time instead.)
