Attach Koga’s Ninja Trick to your Active Pokémon with Koga in its name. If this Pokémon goes to your Bench, discard this card. When your opponent attacks, you may switch this Pokémon with 1 of your Benched Pokémon (before damage or other effects of attacks).

Koga is just as adept at switching art as he is switching pokemon. It’s a shame that this card was printed with the stipulation that it only applies to Koga’s pokemon. I suppose this was intentional ,an attempt to experiment with unusual, possibly powerful effects in a format that would not permanently define the TCG. I’d love to see this printed again, without the limitation
I remember building a Koga deck back in the day. Many annoyed boys fell before the might of this card and the stadium.
