Release information

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

Trivia

Early prints had the HP read "HP 70" instead of "70 HP".

Origin

Stun Spore is a move in the Pokémon games that Metapod cannot learn until it evolves into Butterfree. 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.
