Natural Habitats

Pulse Bombus are energy based creatures found on Tallon IV, being present in the Chozo Ruins, Phendrana Drifts, and an invisible variety in the Phazon Mines. They are similar to the Luminoth-built Harmony Class Drone and the Atomics found on Bryyo and the G.F.S. Valhalla. Pulse Bombus attack by releasing explosives bursts of electricity. If Samus uses the Charge Beam, they will come towards Samus until she fires it. Samus can only defeat them with the Wave Beam.[1] There is also a variant found in the Phazon Mines that is invisible to conventional visors and can only be seen with the X-Ray Visor.
