DarknessDarknessColorless

だましうち
Choose 1 of your opponent's Pokémon. This attack does 30 damage to that Pokémon. This attack's damage isn't affected by Weakness, Resistance, Poké-Powers, Poké-Bodies, or any other effects on that Pokémon. (Don't apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokémon.)

Release information

This card was released in the English EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua, first originating as one of the Japanese ADV-P Promotional cards. The English print was released as the Box Topper for the EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua expansion. The Japanese print was released as both a Holofoil and Non Holofoil Promotional card at participating 7-Eleven stores as part of the Pokémon Fair campaign, which ran from June 25th, 2003 until stocks lasted. Customers who purchased a bottle of Coca-Cola Vanilla, Sprite Classic, Ambasa Sour White, Fanta Fruit Punch, or Fanta Melon Soda were given one of 21 possible cards.

Trivia

The parenthetical clause in Feint Attack is redundant, since the attack's main effect already states that Weakness and Resistance does not apply.

Origin

Quick Attack and Feint Attack are both moves in the Pokémon games that Absol can learn, the latter via breeding.
