Trivia

  • The Japanese "Snap" print has a camera graphic where an expansion symbol would usually be.
  • Unlike the majority of the cards released through the Spring 1999 Pokémon Snap contests, the "Snap" print does feature the additional text on the bottom right.

Origin

Bubble and Withdraw are both moves in the Pokémon games that Squirtle can learn. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, though it is slightly reworded. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
