Midair ascent and descent
Vector blows a bubble while Espio and Charmy holds onto him, allowing the team to float in the air.
Bubblegum Descent  ( is a 風船ガム落下 Fūsen gamu rakka , lit. "Bubblegum Fall") ? Power Formation maneuver used by Team Chaotix in . When performing this move, Sonic Heroes Espio the Chameleon and Charmy Bee hold onto Vector the Crocodile, who blows a large bubblegum bubble that lets them drift through midair or reach higher areas by utilizing vertical drafts.
When performing Bubblegum Descent, Vector inflates a massive purple balloon-bubble made of bubblegum while in midair, which slows his own descent by catching the air beneath him. Meanwhile, Espio grabs onto the back of Vector's gold chain and Charmy holds onto the end of Vector's tail, preventing them from falling. While descending, Vector gives off a green aura.
While using the Bubblegum Descent, the player is able to greatly slow their descent through the air, and also slowly move in any direction, similar to
gliding. Additionally, in areas with vertical drafts (e.g. fans), the player is able to catch the upward draft generated at these places and ascend to higher sections by using the Bubblegum Descent above the source of these updrafts.
To perform the Bubblegum Descent in gameplay, Team Chaotix has to be in Power Formation. The player must then press and hold down the jump button (
/ / ) while jumping or in midair, and can also use the control stick to move in different directions. To break the Bubblegum Descent, the player must release the jump button.
