Release information

In Japan, this card was one of five that could be obtained through the Communication Evolution campaign, which began in April 1999. Participants had to send a Omanyte card along with Bill's PC in the mail to MediaFactory. MediaFactory would then send back the 'evolved' form.

Trivia

  • Although the vending machine cards were all printed on glossy card stock, the Masaki promos were all printed on regular card stock.
  • Despite the Masaki Evolution campaign cards being based on the concept that certain Pokémon have to be traded to evolve, Omastar is included even though its pre-evolved form, Omanyte does not require to be traded in order to evolve in the games.

Origin

This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Blue.
