Trivia

This card's Cunning Poké-POWER is similar to the Pokémon Power of the same name possessed by the Dark Slowking from Neo Destiny. The two differ significantly, however, in that this version of the power doesn't require a successful coin flip of heads to work, whereas the Neo Destiny version does.
