Release information

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 Non Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the English Base Set 2 expansion.


Early prints of the Unlimited Holofoil version were printed without the Jungle set symbol. This error was corrected later in the print run.


Guillotine is a move in the Pokémon games that Pinsir can learn. This card's English Pokédex comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, though it is slightly reworded. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
