Once during your turn (before your attack), you may change the type of Venomoth to the type of any other Pokémon in play other than Colorless. This power can't be used if Venomoth is Asleep, Confused, or Paralyzed.
The dust-like scales covering its wings are color-coded to indicate the kinds of poison it has.
This card was released in the English Jungle expansion as both a Holofoil and Non-Holofoil card, originating from the Japanese Pokémon Jungle expansion as only a Holofoil card. The Non-Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the English Base Set 2 expansion.
Although this Pokémon is level 28, Venonat does not evolve into Venomoth until level 31.
Early prints of the Unlimited Holofoil version were printed without the Jungle set symbol. This error was corrected later in the print run.
