Release information

This card was reprinted in the Legendary Collection reprint set, which was only released outside of Japan.


The red jewel that is usually found on Golduck's forehead is missing on this card's art.


Hyper Beam is a move in the Pokémon games that Golduck can learn via TM15. Psyshock's Japanese name is that of Confusion, a move in the Pokémon games that Golduck can also learn. Much later, in Generation V Psyshock itself became a move that Golduck can learn. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
