This card is a good example of something that confuses me about Bulbapedia. For a Pokémon card to be considered the same card as an earlier release, it has to have everything that has an effect on gameplay (weakness, retreat cost, attack cost, HP, etc.) be the same, barring some wording updates in effects. But the requirements for Trainer cards to be considered the same card as an earlier release seems to be simply "It has the same name." The effects of this card in particular are so drastically different that the Super Rod Trainer card and the Super Rod Item card should probably be considered two distinct cards that have the same name, the way Pokémon cards are treated. Not sure if there's some reason that they're handled differently, but I just thought I'd bring up the inconsistency. Hyper Turtwig (talk) 17:49, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
