Release information

In Japan, this card was one of five that could be obtained through the Communication Evolution campaign, which began in April 1999. Participants had to send a Machoke card along with Bill's PC in the mail to MediaFactory. MediaFactory would then send back the 'evolved' form. It was later reprinted in Pokémon Web. The English version of the card was available through Pokémon Leagues in February 2002.


Although the vending machine cards were all printed on glossy card stock, the Masaki promos were all printed on regular card stock.


Fling is a move later introduced in the Generation IV Pokémon games that Machamp can learn by TM56; however, the Japanese names are not the same, making this attack and the move unrelated. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue.
