かげぶんしん
Whenever Rocket's Scyther is attacked, your opponent flips a coin. If tails, that attack does no damage to Rocket's Scyther. (Any other effects of the attack still happen.) This effect lasts until Rocket's Scyther takes damage (or is Benched or is evolved).

Trivia

Despite the fact that there are two later-released Rocket Scizor cards, Rocket's Scizor as a Best of Game promo and Rocket's Scizor ex from EX Team Rocket Returns, Rocket's Scyther has no legal evolution card. That's because the Best of Game promo Rocket's Scizor is done in the VS style and is a Basic Pokémon, while Rocket's Scizor ex is permitted to evolve only from Rocket's Scyther ex in EX Team Rocket Returns. Thus, the addition of "or is evolved" in the Shadow Images attack is unnecessary.

Origin

Shadow Images's Japanese name is that of Double Team, a move in the Pokémon games that Scyther can learn.
