Once during your turn, when you put Zapdos ex from your hand onto your Bench, you may switch 1 of your Active Pokémon with Zapdos ex. If you do, you may also move any number of basic Lightning Energy cards attached to your Pokémon to Zapdos ex.
Electron Crush
You may discard an Energy card attached to Zapdos ex. If you do, this attack does 50 damage plus 20 more damage.
