Card text

Energy Shift
Once during your turn, if Electrode would be Knocked Out by damage from an attack, you may use this power. Electrode isn't discarded. Instead, attach it as an Energy card to 1 of your Pokémon. While attached, this card is a Special Energy card and provides every type of Energy but provides only 1 Energy at a time. (Has no effect other than providing Energy.)
Ion Blast
You may do 40 damage plus 60 more damage. If you do, Electrode does 100 damage to itself.

Pokédex data

Pokédex entry
It is known to drift on winds if it is bloated to bursting with stored electricity.
でんきエネルギーを ためすぎて ぱんぱんに ふくらんだ マルマインが かぜに ながされてくることが ある。


The Energy Shift Poké-POWER was later errata'd to remove the "Once during your turn" text from the beginning; the effect is supposed to trigger at any point Electrode is Knocked Out, not just during the player's turn.


This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.
