Trivia

Origin

Vine Whip and PoisonPowder are both moves in the Pokémon games that Ivysaur can learn. The Japanese name of Vine Whip uses the Hiragana むち rather than the Katakana ムチ used in the video games. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, though it is slightly reworded. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
