We are trying to figure out some confusion with the pounce ability.
The pounce ability in 5e states the following:
Pounce. If the tiger moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature right before hitting it with a claw attack, the target must succeed on a DC 13 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the tiger can take a bonus action to make one bite attack against it.
Does the person have to choose whether to pounce or attack or is pounce an addition to the claw attack?
