Trivia

This card has been banned from all sanctioned Pokémon TCG tournaments using the Expanded format since October 4, 2019 in Japan and November 15, 2019 internationally as it was ruled to create an unbalanced playing environment. The concern was a specific combo in Japanese tournaments with the help of this card that dwindled the opponent's hand up to no cards on their first turn.

Origin

Participants in Alola's Island challenges are given an island challenge amulet to identify them.
