Trivia

The Legendary Treasures print is one of numerous cards to feature an illustration that is part of a narrative, a concept unique to the expansion. Following on from the scene on the Tepig card, the family Tepig has evolved into Pignite, and the husband and wife appear to have had a daughter. The scene continues on the Emboar card.

Origin

Rollout and Flamethrower are both moves in the Pokémon games that Pignite can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Black.
