Card text

Dark Seed
The Defending Pokémon can't retreat during your opponent's next turn. Put 5 damage counters on the Defending Pokémon at the end of your opponent's next turn.
Spread Poison
The Defending Pokémon is now Poisoned. This attack does 20 damage to 1 of your opponent's Benched Pokémon. (Don't apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokémon.)


Unlike most Dark Pokémon in EX Team Rocket Returns, this card was made as a single-type Darkness Pokémon instead of a dual-type, a trait it shares with the other normally Colorless Pokémon made into Dark Pokémon in this set.
