Trivia

Origin

Amnesia and DoubleSlap are both moves in the Pokémon games that can be learned by Poliwhirl. The Japanese name of Doubleslap uses the Hiragana びんた rather than the Katakana ビンタ used in the video games. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, though it is slightly reworded. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
