Trivia

  • The Japanese "Snap" print has a camera graphic where an expansion symbol would usually be.
  • The text on the bottom right of the "Snap" print reads: Best Photo Contest Winners Prize Card.
  • The Base Set print of this card depicts a Magikarp with an alternate coloration that resembles its Shiny coloration, despite Shiny Pokémon not existing at the time this card was printed.

Origin

Tackle and Flail are both moves in the Pokémon games that Magikarp can learn, though Flail was not introduced until Generation II. 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.
