Card text

Rough Skin
If Sharpedo is your Active Pokémon and is damaged by an opponent's attack (even if Sharpedo is Knocked Out), put 2 damage counters on the Attacking Pokémon.
Dark Slash
You may discard a Darkness Energy card attached to Sharpedo. If you do, this attack does 40 damage plus 30 more damage.


The Italian-language and German-language print says to put only 1 damage counter on the attacking Pokémon when Rough Skin is used. Rulings state to play the Italian and German card as if it said 2 damage counters, citing "it didn't get weaker as it swam the Atlantic".


Rough Skin is an Ability in the Pokémon games that Sharpedo can have.
