+1000; (Only a Paper Water Dinosaur can use this Move.)


  • Its name is shortened to "Tragic Sphere" in the TCG and DS game.
  • Artwork from its various arcade cards is also seen on the TCG Move Cards Mega Geyser (06 1st) and Water Spout (06 Rainy), and an altered version is seen on Gushing Geyser (06 6th).
  • Like most Moves, it is highly impossible to achieve when real-world mechanics are considered: sauropods and spinosaurids leaping that high, the water sphere itself floating in midair and holding a dinosaur, the mere generation of the water sphere at all, etc.
