Release information

Grimer's pupils in this card's artwork were repositioned for the English release, as in the Japanese version it appeared to be looking up the Lass's skirt. The English release of this card's Poison Gas attack changed meaning from its original Japanese effect, causing Sleep instead of Poison.
