  • This card later received an erratum to change its damage reduction effect to apply after applying Weakness and Resistance. The entire effect was rephrased as "Any damage done to the   Pokémon this card is attached to by an opponent's attack is reduced by 10 (after applying Weakness and Resistance)."
  • This card is extremely similar in functionality to the original Metal Energy.
