Release information

This card was released as one of two promotional cards, alongside Wobbuffet, available in the HeartGold & SoulSilver Three Pack Blisters. In Japan, it was released as a DPt-P Promotional card and available as a Gold Rank prize to members of the Pokémon Daisuki Club. To achieve a Gold Rank, players had to accumulate at least 1,200 Action Points (AP). As the TCG transitioned into the LEGEND Era in Japan, the card was reprinted as a L-P Promotional card, which also required 1,200 AP to earn. Due to the relatively short timeframe in which to accumulate the requisite number of points, many members would have been awarded the card after the transition, making the DPt-P print rarer than the L-P print.



Recharge's Japanese name is that of Charge, a move in the Pokémon games that Pikachu can learn via breeding. Thunderbolt is also move that Pikachu can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Platinum.
