Monopoly: Pokémon Exclusive Kanto Edition

In the exclusive edition of Monopoly: Pokémon Kanto Edition, Vine Whip is the Power Card belonging to Bulbasaur. Whenever an opponent builds Poké Marts or Pokémon Centers on their properties, the player using Bulbasaur may steal one of the buildings, placing it on a property they own that it can be legally placed on. If the player cannot place it on any of their properties, they may save the building until they are able to do so. Like all other Power Cards, this effect can only be used once per game.
