Pokédex entry
The more energy it charges up, the faster it gets. But this also makes it more likely to explode.
たいりょうの でんきエネルギーを もてあまし ひまに なると ばくはつして あそぶので きけん。

Hidden Poké-Power

The long strip contains data for an additional Poké-Power this card can use:

Poké-POWER
Energy Sprinkle
エネスプリンクル
 
 
You can use this power once during your turn (before your attack), if Electrode is your Active Pokémon. This Poké-Power lets you move a number of basic Energy cards attached to Electrode to any number of your Benched Pokémon. This power can't be used when Electrode is affected by a Special Condition.

Selecting "Yes" reveals the number of Energy cards.

Trivia

Origin

Selfdestruct is a move in the Pokémon games that Electrode can learn. This card's English e-Reader Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Crystal, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Gold.
