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.


Early prints of the card mistakenly list the weight as length.


PoisonPowder is a move in the games, but Kakuna cannot learn it. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
