Release information

A holographic variant of this card was available in the James Theme Deck in English, and as a separatley numbered card to its non-holographic counterpart in the Silver Deck Kit in Japan.


Unlike most Dark Pokémon in EX Team Rocket Returns, this card was made as a single-type Darkness Pokémon instead of a dual-type, a trait it shares with the other normally Colorless Pokémon made into Dark Pokémon in this set.


Double Wing Attack is a variant of Wing Attack, a move in the Pokémon games that Dragonite can learn.
