Release information

This card was released in the English Base Set, first originating from the Japanese Expansion Pack. It was reprinted in the English Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection expansions.



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.
