Errata for Electrode in Pokémon TCG: XY—Evolutions

This text change for Electrode’s Buzzap Thunder Ability will be effective immediately.

Due to an error in the card text for Electrode's (XY—Evolutions, 40/108) Buzzap Thunder Ability, the text on this card will be changed. The original text for this Ability says:

  • Once during your turn (before your attack), you may Knock Out this Pokémon and attach it to one of your Lightning-type Pokémon as a Special Energy card. This card provides 2 Lightning Energy only while this card is attached to a Lightning-type Pokémon.

The original intention of this Ability was for Electrode to provide 2 Lightning Energy as long as it's attached to any Pokémon, not just a Lightning-type Pokémon.

The new text will say:

  • Once during your turn (before your attack), you may Knock Out this Pokémon and attach it to one of your Lightning-type Pokémon as a Special Energy card. This card provides 2 Lightning Energy only while this card is attached to a Pokémon.

Effective immediately, Electrode's Buzzap Thunder Ability will use this updated text instead of the original text. This will be reflected on the Pokémon TCG Errata document.
