Trivia

  • This card features "Special Card" instead of "Trainer" at the top.
  • The card features the Pokémon Fan Club logo in place of an expansion symbol. The logo replaces the "e" on the e-card reprint.
  • The e-card reprint has "2001/Summer" where there is usually a collection number.
  • All versions of this card were released as a Jumbo card and therefore not legal to use in tournaments or official events.
