Pokédex entry
Whenever Pikachu comes across something new, it blasts it with a jolt of electricity. If you come across a blackened berry, it's evidence that this Pokémon mistook the intensity of its charge.

Release information

This card was included in the English EX Sandstorm expansion, first released in the Japanese Miracle of the Desert expansion. It was later reprinted in the English EX Trainer Kit. This print lacks the e-Reader Dot Code strip and features a normal border following the cessation of TCG support for the e-Reader starting with the EX Hidden Legends expansion.

Trivia

Origin

Scratch is a move in the Pokémon games; however, Pikachu cannot learn it. This card's e-Reader Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Ruby.
