Trivia

The Evolutionary Gas Poké-POWER was later errata'd to add "(If the Defending Pokémon is no longer your opponent's Active Pokémon, this effect ends.)" to the end of the effect. Prior to the errata, the card had been interpreted as the effect lingering while on the Bench.

Origin

Plunder is similar to Thief, a move in the Pokémon games that Skuntank can learn via TM46.
