Card text

Eerie Howl
If your opponent's Bench isn't full, look at his or her hand. If your opponent has any Baby Pokémon or Basic Pokémon there, choose 1 of them and put it on his or her Bench. Then, switch it with the Defending Pokémon.
Dark Fire
If there are any Darkness Energy cards attached to Dark Houndoom, discard 1 of them and this attack does 30 damage plus 20 more damage (plus 10 more damage for the Darkness Energy you discarded). If there aren't any, this attack does 30 damage.

Pokédex entry
The flame it breathes is actually a volatile poison it produces internally that ignites when exposed to air.


Along with Dark Tyranitar, Houndoom is one of the two Dark-type Pokémon released as a Dark Pokémon. This is done due to its secondary type of Fire, as no Darkness-type Pokémon were made into Dark Pokémon in Neo Destiny.


This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Crystal, though it is heavily reworded.
