Pokédex entry
It is encased in a steel shell. Its peering eyes are all that can be seen of its mysterious innards.
こうてつの カラで まもられている。 すきまから めだまが のぞいているが なかみの しょうたいは なぞのまま。


Iron Shell was later errata'd to make the coin flip now mandatory upon the Energy attachment, as opposed to optional as was printed on the card.


Explosion is a move in the Pokémon games that Forretress can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.
