Trivia

  • The Japanese promotional version has an open book symbol in place of an expansion symbol. It is also commonly known as Natta Wake Sunkern in reference to the manga book in which it was distributed.

Origin

Growth and Mega Drain are both moves in the Pokémon games that Sunkern can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Gold, though it is slightly reworded.
