Card text

You can't have more than 1 Pokémon Pokémon Star.png in your deck.
Water Whirlpool
Flip a coin. If heads, discard an Energy card attached to the Defending Pokémon.
WaterWater Spring Back
If your opponent has only 1 Prize card left, this attack does 20 damage plus 50 more damage and the Defending Pokémon is now Asleep.



Whirlpool is a move in the Pokémon games that Mudkip can learn. Spring Back's Japanese name is that of Payback, a move later introduced in Generation IV that Mudkip cannot learn. Like all Pokémon ☆ cards, it is intended to represent the Shiny version of a Pokémon, although, for some reason, this does not seem to be the case for this specific card. Shiny Mudkips have pink, purplish colored skin, while the one represented on the card has a slightly dark blue skin. Curiously enough, its tail fin and lower body are correctly colored after Shiny Mudkips.
