Pokédex entry
Even a missile can't break the spikes it uses to stab opponents. They're even harder than its shell.
あいてを つきさすための トゲは ナパームだん でも こわせない カラよりも はるかに かたいのだ。


The long strip contains data for the Kingler's Day mini-game. Three other cards from Expedition Base Set are also required to play it.



Lick is a move in the Pokémon games; however, Cloyster cannot learn it. This card's e-Reader Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Crystal.
