Dark Muk (Japanese: わるいベトベトン Bad Betbeton) is a dual-type Grass/Darkness Stage 1 Pokémon card. It is part of the EX Team Rocket Returns expansion.

Card text

This Pokémon is both GrassDarkness type
Sticky Goo
As long as Dark Muk is your Active Pokémon, your opponent pays    more to retreat his or her Active Pokémon.
Slimy Water
Does 10 damage times the number of   Energy in the Defending Pokémon's Retreat Cost (after applying effects to the Retreat Cost).
Acidic Poison
The Defending Pokémon is now Burned and Poisoned.


This card's Sticky Goo Poké-BODY is similar to the Pokémon Power of the same name possessed by the Dark Muk from Team Rocket. The two differ significantly, however, in that this card's Poké-BODY works even while Dark Muk is affected by a Special Condition, whereas the Pokémon Power doesn't.


Acidic Poison may be based on Acid, a move in the Pokémon games, though Muk cannot learn it.
