Card text

Fire Breath
Once during your turn (before your attack), you may flip a coin. If heads, the Defending Pokémon is now Burned. This power can't be used if Houndoom is affected by a Special Condition.
Dark Clamp
The Defending Pokémon can't retreat during your opponent's next turn.


This card's Poké-Power functions similarly to that of the same name on the Dark Houndoom from EX Team Rocket Returns, with the exception that this power can be used from the Bench, and that it focuses on one Defending Pokémon as opposed to two (as per the mechanic introduced in EX Ruby & Sapphire).
