Pokédex entry
Nicknamed "the bully of the sea," Sharpedo is widely feared. Its cruel fangs grow back immediately if they snap off. Just one of these Pokémon can thoroughly tear apart a supertanker.


The Italian-language and German-language print says to put only 1 damage counter on the attacking Pokémon when Rough Skin is used. Rulings state to play the Italian and German card as if it said 2 damage counters, citing "it didn't get weaker as it swam the Atlantic".


Rough Skin is an Ability in the Pokémon games that Sharpedo can have. This card's e-Reader Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Ruby.
