Release information

In Japan, this card was available as an insert with the February 1999 issue of CoroCoro Comic. The English version of the card was included with Pokémon Trading Card Game for the Game Boy Color. A Non-Holofoil version of the English print was released in Japan as part of a pre-paid pass pack made available during the Pokémon Stamp Rally 2000, held in August 2000.

Trivia

  • The attack text for the English release of this card was slightly altered from its Japanese version, as it was considered too vague. The English Pokémon Trading Card Game version of the card still contains the original Japanese translation, as it was created before Wizards of the Coast produced the card.
    • Additionally, the English print of the card nudges the HP over a bit farther to the left than normal.
  • The card displays a 'GB' symbol in the bottom right corner of the artwork, indicating it was originally created exclusively for the Game Boy.
  • Meowth's level on the card is listed as Lv. 13 although it is Lv. 14 in the game.

Origin

This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue.
