Trivia

Due to an error, the types of colored Energy mentioned in the Crystal Type Poké-BODY do not correlate exactly to the types of colored Energy in the attacks. Grass and Lightning match, but Fire appears only in the Poké-BODY and Fighting appears only in the Rolling Thunder attack. It was ruled to play the power as if the Fire were actually a Fighting to keep the power in line with the attack.
