Release information

These cards were given to participants of the New Garura Parent/Child Tournament in February 2002, as they were necessary for the New Garura Rules version of the TCG utilized in the tournament. These rules required a deck consisting of 29 cards with the old reverse design, 29 on the current reverse design, plus the two promotional cards to initiate a partner switch, hence the differences in card design. It was later reprinted and given to participants of the regional Battle Road Spring 2002 tournaments.

Trivia

On the few occasions where the Garura Rules, or variations thereof were used in official events, each one featured a new promotional card made specifically for use when the rules were in effect. The Touch Change! card was created for the initial Garura Rules, and the Touch Exchange! card was created for the Tag Battle Rules. With the respective rules in effect, these cards are the only Trainer cards that are mandatory for play.
