Release information

This card was included in the English Rising Rivals expansion, first released in the Japanese Bonds to the End of Time expansion. An extremely exclusive Stamped print of this card was given to The Pokémon Company International's distribution partners at the TPCi Annual Distributors Meeting in 2009. Its unique stamp says Chicago 09, representing the year of the meeting and the city in which it took place. There are confirmed to be only six copies of this print. Of the three that were released in this way (Piplup, Turtwig, and Munchlax), Munchlax is the only one that is Non Holofoil.



Rest is a move in the Pokémon games that Munchlax can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Platinum.
