Release information

The English release of this card's Call Back attack changed meaning from its original Japanese effect. The English print read "You can't use this attack if your Bench is full," when it should have read "You can't use this attack if your opponent's Bench is full." It then received an errata to revert the English card's meaning back to what the Japanese print read.

Trivia

Although this Pokémon is level 18, Gastly does not evolve into Haunter until level 25.

Origin

This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Gold, but it is heavily reworded.
