Pokédex entry
Sneaks up silently on its prey and attacks it from behind, sometimes killing it with one bite.


There is a space missing before the last sentence in the Pokémon Power, causing it to read "Pokémon.Apply". Furthermore, the English Pokémon Power states "Apply Weakness and Resistance.", where the Japanese card states "Don't apply Weakness and Resistance."
