Release information

In Japan, this card was released as a promotional card with different artwork by Ken Sugimori. It was first available through the "Trade Please" campaign that ran from February 10th to July 31st in 1998. A flyer included with the Trade Please album by Suzukisan had to be mailed to MediaFactory along with any two Pokémon trading cards within the campaign period. The Please Trade promotional card, as well as either this card, Charizard, or Blastoise would then be sent back, completing the trade.
It was reprinted in the Intro Pack and again as part of the Pokémon Song Best Collection CD. These variants were never released in English. The Base Set version was also reprinted in the Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection reprint sets, which were only released outside of Japan.

Trivia

The Venusaur cards released via the "Trade Please" campaign and Pokémon Song Best Collection CD have the Pikachu Records logo in place of an expansion symbol.

Origin

SolarBeam is a move in the Pokémon games that Venusaur 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.
