   Dark Drain
Flip a coin for each of your opponent's Pokémon. For each heads, this attack does 10 damage to that Pokémon. Don't apply Weakness and Resistance. Remove a number of damage counters from Dark Crobat equal to the damage dealt. If Dark Crobat has fewer damage counters than that, remove all of them.

Although the wings it has evolved on its feet allow it to fly at high speeds, they unfortunately make it difficult to perch.


Dark Crobat is the only Neo Destiny card that explicitly requires a Dark Pokémon from the Team Rocket expansion to come into play. Because of this, it was an orphaned card for a time when it came to the Modified format due to the only Dark Golbat card at the time being rotated out in the first rotation. It would not be playable in the format again until Pokémon Breeder was reprinted in Legendary Collection.


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