Lt. Surge


Rarity Holo + Rare

You can play this card only if you have at least 1 Basic Pokémon card in your hand. Put a Basic Pokémon card from your hand into play as your Active Pokémon. Put your old Active Pokémon onto your Bench. (You can't play this card if your Bench is full.)


This card is most useful if your deck uses a lot of high-retreat cost Pokemon and you have something that would make sense to insert, such as a Baby. However, it might make more sense to just use Switch in your deck. This card is effectively Switch with the requirement that the incoming Pokemon come from your hand, not your bench.

Title Text
Vermilion City Gym This card stays in play when you play it. Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play. Whenever a player attacks with a Pokémon with Lt. Surge in its name, he or she may flip a coin. If heads, and if that Pokémon's attack does damage to the Defending Pokémon (after applying Weakness and Resistance), that attack does 10 more damage to the Defending Pokémon. If tails, the attacking Pokémon does 10 damage to itself in addition to whatever its attack usually does.
