Trivia

Origin

The Japanese name of this card's Ability can be taken as 風の便り kaze no tayori (lit. "letters from the wind"); as a saying, it signifies a rumored statement, equivalent to English "through the grapevine" or "a little bird told me". Wing Attack is a move in the Pokémon games that Pelipper can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Scarlet. The Paldean Fates print features the Shiny version of Pelipper.
