Main article: Super Rod (Neo Genesis 103)

The Super 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 Gold, Silver, to a New World... before debuting in English in the Neo Genesis expansion, with an illustration by Keiji Kinebuchi. Super Rod lets a player flip a coin. If heads, the player can put an Evolution card from their discard pile into their hand. If tails, the player can put a Basic Pokémon instead into their hand. It was later reclassified as an Item card during the Black & White Series (the Japanese BW Era). It was included in the Red Collection and then released in the English Noble Victories expansion with new artwork by 5ban Graphics. It was further reprinted in the Dragon Vault (artwork by 5ban Graphics) and BREAKthrough (artwork by Toyste Beach expansions, first released in the Japanese Dragon Selection subset and Noivern BREAK Evolution Pack respectively. It allows a player to shuffle 3 Pokémon or basic Energy cards from their discard pile into their hand.

Trivia

  • The Super Rod is the only fishing rod that is obtainable in Generation V. The Old and Good Rods, while still existent in the game's programming, cannot be obtained without hacking and cannot be used; if hacked in, they can be held by a Pokémon unlike legitimate Key Items.
