Trivia

  • All of the cards feature a stylized stadium, often related to the area in which the print was available, with at least one Pokémon in the image. The only variants which do not conform to this are the Neo Destiny print, which features Imakuni? himself and people dancing; and the Intro Pack Neo print, which features the symbols of the two half decks, as well as adverts for the Neo series and Pokémon Card Laboratory.
  • The prints awarded during the World Challenge Summer campaign all feature regional landmarks:
    • The Kyūshū print features Mount Aso, Japan's largest active volcano.
    • The Kantō print features several high-rise buildings of the Tokyo cityscape, and the Tokyo Radio Tower.
    • The Kansai print features the pagoda at Tō-ji, Kyoto, Japan's tallest pagoda.
    • The Chūgoku/Shikoku print features the 'floating' torii at Itsukushima Shrine, Hatsukaichi.
    • The Chūbu print features the central tower of Osaka Castle.
    • The Tōhoku print features the Godaido Shrine among the islands of Matsushima.
    • The Hokushin'etsu print features several mountains of the Japanese Alps.
    • The Hokkaidō print features a sculpture of Pikachu in front of the Sapporo Clock Tower in celebration of the Sapporo Snow Festival.
  • The Tropical Mega Battle print is extremely rare with less than 50 copies printed based on the number of competitors at the tournament.
  • Variational prints based on the region tournaments were held in would later be replicated with the Pokémon Pal City promotional card, also a Stadium card.
  • The Neo Destiny print is the only card with an illustrator credit reading "Illus. Imakuni?" to be released outside Japan. This may be due to the fact that all other cards with that credit are "spoof" cards that feature exclusively in Japanese releases.
  • This card's effect matches that of Battle City, a card later released as one of the BW Black Star Promos.
  • In the background of the New York City print, the Empire State Building can be seen.
