If they’re injured or broken off, the spines will regenerate countless times. As a consequence of Mega Evolution, its combative instincts exploded. The yellow marks it bears are scars from a long history of battles. So, here it is, the fourteenth entry, Sharpedo

This trademark is for the word ポケダリング (literally Pokedaringu, possibly translated as PokéDaring or PokéDulling - we won't get a proper romanisation until some context is given). It's not currently known what this trademark is for, as it doesn't appear to be used in any previous products. However, it could be for a game, merchandise line or even just an item in a game.
