Trivia

  • As the name of the card indicates, the illustration features a Pikachu wearing a naval captain's hat manning a ship with several other Pokémon as the ship's crew. Many of the Pokémon featured in the illustration belong to main characters in the anime.
  • This card was released as a Jumbo card and was therefore not legal to use in tournaments or official events.
  • The card features the Yokohama Pokémon Center logo.
  • The card features a plain foil silver border.

Origin

A Pikachu was available for download on the same day at the Yokohama Pokémon Center. The Pikachu shares a similarity to this card in that it knows the move Surf.
