Release information

This card was released in the Japanese Rocket Gang expansion, with the effect of the Conversion 1 attack being removed if either Porygon or the affected Pokémon were moved to the Bench. When this card was released in English in the Team Rocket expansion, Conversion 1's effect was altered to remain after either Pokémon were Benched.

Trivia

Origin

Conversion 1 is a variation of Conversion, a move in the Pokémon games that Porygon can learn. Psybeam is also a move in the Pokémon games that Porygon can learn. This card's Pokédex entry and illustration reference the prize Porygon that can be won at Rocket Game Corner.
