These were set to end on May 11 but were extended to May 31 when emergencies were also declared in the prefectures of Aichi, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Hokkaido, Okayama, and Okinawa.

Trivia

This card is one of numerous cards to feature an illustration that is part of a narrative. Following on from the scene on the Eevee card, the Eevee appears to have evolved into an Umbreon and runs along the waterfront, kicking up the water it was pawing at as an Eevee.

Origin

Blindside is an attack that first appeared on Murkrow from Skyridge. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Shield.
