The Old Rod was introduced as a Trainer card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Neo Series (the Japanese Neo Era). It was first released in the Awakening Legends expansion before debuting in English in the Neo Revelation expansion, with an illustration by Keiji Kinebuchi. A reprint with new artwork by Shizurow was included in the Japanese Offense and Defense of the Furthest Ends expansion, and then released in the English EX Dragon Frontiers expansion. Old Rod lets a player flip 2 coins. If both are heads, the player can search their discard pile for a Baby Pokémon (Neo Revelation only), Basic Pokémon, or Evolution card and put it into their hand. If both coins are tails, the player search their discard pile for a Trainer card instead and put it into their hand.
