Hidden Poké-Power

The long strip contains data for an additional Poké-Power this card can use:

Energy Sprinkle
You can use this power once during your turn (before your attack), if Electrode is your Active Pokémon. This Poké-Power lets you move a number of basic Energy cards attached to Electrode to any number of your Benched Pokémon. This power can't be used when Electrode is affected by a Special Condition.

Selecting "Yes" reveals the number of Energy cards. The exact number of cards chosen, based on disassembly, is chosen from a random number ranging from 0 to 99. (100-1.)

 0-54: 1 Card.
55-84: 2 Cards.
85-94: 3 Cards.
95-97: 4 Cards.
98-99: All Cards.
