Origin

Hyper Beam is a move in the Pokémon games that Golduck can learn via TM15. Psyshock's Japanese name is that of Confusion, a move in the Pokémon games that Golduck can also learn. Much later, in Generation V Psyshock itself became a move that Golduck can learn. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
