This card was released in the English Jungle expansion as both a Holofoil and Non Holofoil card, originating from the Japanese Pokémon Jungle expansion as only a Holofoil card. The Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the English Base Set 2 expansion. The Non Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the English Legendary Collection expansion.
Early prints of the Unlimited Holofoil version were printed without the Jungle set symbol. This error was corrected later in the print run.
