This card was first released in the Team Rocket expansion, originating from the Japanese Rocket Gang expansion. It was later reprinted in Japan in the Pokémon Web expansion.

Trivia

The How I Became a Pokémon Card chapter Team Rocket and Dark Charmeleon is a story about the Charmeleon that appears on this card.

Origin

Tail Slap is a move later introduced in the Generation V Pokémon games; however, the Japanese names are not the same, making this attack and the move unrelated.
