Trivia

Origin

Aurora Veil is a move later introduced in the Generation VII Pokémon games that Articuno can learn; however, the Japanese names are different, making this Pokémon Power and the move unrelated. Ice Beam is a move that Articuno can learn. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Blue.
