{{{ruletext}}}
Flip a coin. If heads, your opponent sets aside all the cards in his or her hand face down. Nobody may look at those cards. At the end of your opponent's next turn, your opponent puts those cards back into his or her hand. If tails, your turn ends immediately (you can't attack this turn).
 
Do Nothing  
At the beginning of your turn, flip a coin. If heads, you can do nothing during your turn. If tails, your opponent can do nothing during his or her next turn.


Trivia

The card states that it is a Rocket's Secret Robot card; however, it was later ruled that it was a Rocket's Secret Machine card for the purposes of Rocket's Meowth's Snatch and Run attack and Rocket's Wobbuffet's Dark Aid attack, both from EX Team Rocket Returns.

Origin

In EP035, Jessie, James, and Meowth use a tickling machine in order to force Kaiser to tell them where Dratini are located within the Safari Zone. However, their machine did not resemble the one on this card.
