I doubt it considering freezing was against the rules.

he has bent lightnng three time throughout the show and never used it in a probending match which leads to the logical conclusion that advanced bending style is against the rules

Why would it be allowed? That **** is lethal!
User avatar #32 to #29 - grpeephole (06/18/2012) [-]
it is they have the rules on nick.com
#33 to #29 - OmegaRS (06/18/2012) [-]
Even turning water into ice is against the rules, and that's not really advanced. Lightningbending would definitely be against the rules.
User avatar #37 - tealkangaroo (06/18/2012) [-]
No, it's not allowed in pro bending, like 'icing' or 'hosing' for waters benders in pro bending matches
User avatar #27 - qazxswedcvfrt (06/17/2012) [-]
Nope, just like the earth benders aren't allowed to metal-bend the metal grates in the arena that the water comes from, and the water-benders can't blood-bend.
User avatar #28 to #27 - theavatar (06/17/2012) [-]
Well not only no blood bending but they cant use ice thats why when the guy from the wolf bats used it the anouncer guy was like wtf thats a foul and is the ref blind
User avatar #30 to #28 - scoggand (06/18/2012) [-]
actually he was like wtf because the ice had rocks in it
User avatar #44 to #30 - theavatar (06/19/2012) [-]
He also froze I forget whos leg but the anouncer was going crazy about it
#31 to #30 - Rascal (06/18/2012) [-]
actually, there are a compilition of the rules on nicks site iirc, it explains that ice isn't allowed at all. Neither is crumbling the rock disc or using lightning
#34 - deusira (06/18/2012) [-]
yeah i would assume it is just the base elemental bending, seeing all the cheating in the tahno match, with the ice and the broken rocks and such i would thing not
User avatar #22 - Krypton (06/17/2012) [-]
I was wondering that, shouldn't he be really powerful against equalists since he can repel ALL their attacks?
User avatar #5 - boxdweller ONLINE (06/17/2012) [-]
I think lightning kills instantly unless redirected, so it makes sense that it's not allowed.

In that instance he redirected it but towards the beggining of the series we learned that Mako had the ability to project lightning... Remember when the fire ferrets needed money so he worked in that factory?
User avatar #1 - fedegon (06/17/2012) [-]
Seeing as lightning is a whole damn lot deadlier than fire and the fact that he never used it in the series







no.
User avatar #4 to #1 - tomasz (06/17/2012) [-]
he used it at the power plant, to earn money i think
#12 to #4 - mrtutty (06/17/2012) [-]
He also used it during the car chase in When Extremes Meet
#10 to #4 - lolslowbro (06/17/2012) [-]
im glad im not the only person to notice that
User avatar #6 to #4 - radroach (06/17/2012) [-]
That was Bolin.
User avatar #15 to #6 - iwaslvlthree (06/17/2012) [-]
earthbender being able to bend lighting. last time i checked korra was the avatar
User avatar #8 to #6 - SRG ONLINE (06/17/2012) [-]
bolin is an earthbender
User avatar #9 to #6 - Bloodtobleed (06/17/2012) [-]
Bolin is an earthbender.....
User avatar #7 to #6 - tomasz (06/17/2012) [-]
the **** ? he's an earth bender
User avatar #16 to #6 - radroach (06/17/2012) [-]
Okay, okay, I went full retard, now can you guys shut the **** up?
#35 - fuzzywumkins (06/18/2012) [-]
lightning bending and lighting redirecting are diffrent, Iroh mastered both but Zuko and Azula were only able to master one each. So Mako might oly e able to redirect it, not produce it.
User avatar #40 to #35 - mrwalkerfour (06/18/2012) [-]
zuko can probably do it now its just his sister was a fire bending prodigy and he well, wasn't. so she learned it faster than him
#41 to #35 - Krathalos (06/18/2012) [-]
He'd produced it multiple times. He was redirecting it in this scene though. Still don't know why he doesn't use it more often.
User avatar #36 to #35 - jacencaedus (06/18/2012) [-]
no he can do both, at one point we saw him at a power plant producing lightning for power
User avatar #38 to #36 - princecamaro (06/18/2012) [-]
and when they were chasing an equalist truck, he shot lightning at it
User avatar #3 - darthblam (06/17/2012) [-]
I don't think he can lightning bend at will.. he just redirected it.
User avatar #17 to #3 - wtf man (06/17/2012) [-]
in an earlier episode he was shown lighting bending when he worked for a power plant
User avatar #21 to #17 - darthblam (06/17/2012) [-]
Fair enough, I forgot about that scene.
#46 - rikutoobendy (06/20/2012) [-]
it's not allowed in pro bending. the avatar wiki has the rulebook
User avatar #42 - shadir ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
If it would be allowed, he would'v used it
#25 - swooz (06/17/2012) [-]
no because then the other player that cant bend lighting will be at a disadvantage
#24 - Rascal (06/17/2012) [-]
He also used it while he was working in the electricity company.


Also... Redirecting a lightning? Iroh was the first that did that... Now everyone know how to do it?
User avatar #23 - leeway (06/17/2012) [-]
so lightning in aangs time was lethal dangerous to everyone, yet in korras time everyones ok in 5 mins? didn't know evolution provided resistance to electricity over 70 years...
#26 to #23 - swooz (06/17/2012) [-]
its because it was just a newly developed skill that only iroh new how to do (im talking about redirection of lighting). not alot of people new how but do it well but now people have actually studied it and practiced it.
User avatar #20 - schneidend (06/17/2012) [-]
I believe all subsets of each bending form are illegal.
This includes ice, metal, blood (duh), and lightning.
#13 - Rascal (06/17/2012) [-]
god, he slow roasted that dude
