Trivia

Origin

Water Gun and Whirlpool are both moves in the Pokémon games that Poliwrath can learn, though Whirlpool did not become an actual move until Generation II. 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.
