Release information

This card was included in the English Expedition Base Set, first released in the Japanese Base Expansion Pack, with artwork by Toshinao Aoki. It was later reprinted in Japan with new artwork by the same artist as a McDonald's promotional card in Japan in May 2002.

In order to promote the e-Reader outside Japan, Nintendo had Media Factory produce the Sample Set, a 10 card collection from the upcoming Expedition Base Set in English used to demonstrate the Dot Code technology at a media pre-launch party at the New York Pokémon Center in August 2002. This card, as well as the other 9, are printed with a Japanese card back, and have "Sample" in the bottom right corner where the expansion symbol would usually be. Approximately 50 sets were printed for use at the event, and were never intended for distribution. Cards that did not make it into circulation were apparently destroyed.

An alternate version of Hoppip was later released again at E3 2002, updated to the Wizards Expedition Base Set layout but with the Japanese back. This later release removed the Sample logo from the card fronts.
