It raises its tail to check its surroundings. The tail is sometimes struck by lightning in this pose.
しっぽを たてて まわりの ようすを さぐっていると ときどき かみなりが しっぽに おちてくる。

Trivia

Origin

Tail Slap is a move later introduced in the Generation V Pokémon games; however, the Japanese names do not match, making this attack and the move unrelated. Quick Attack is a move in the Pokémon games that Pikachu can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon SoulSilver.
