Trivia

Prior to the introduction of the Modified format, this card ran rampant in decks mainly because of the ability to do up to 140 damage on the second turn provided a deck's setup went smoothly, combined with its zero Retreat Cost. When the first Modified Format (Team Rocket on) came into play, this Sneasel was specifically singled out and banned from the format. Later joined by Slowking, it would remain banned from the Modified Format until the Neo Genesis set was rotated out of the format in the second rotation.

This card is extremely similar to the Sneasel card from HS Undaunted. The only difference is the HS Undaunted print has a weakness and less resistance.

Origin

Fury Swipes and Beat Up are both moves in the Pokémon games that Sneasel can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Silver.
