Release information

The holographic version of this card was reprinted in the Base Set 2 reprint set, which was only released outside of Japan. A special reprint with the same artwork by Ken Sugimori was released in the Platinum set. This print modified some of the card text to bring it in line with modern card wording whilst still allowing it to retain its original effects.

Trivia

A number of early Unlimited run prints of the original Jungle release have no expansion symbol. This error occurs on the holographic version only.
